Vectrex Games Compilation – 37 Games in 20 Minutes

Vectrex games can be purchased on cartridge or as a tape. The cassette tapes are the same size as audio cassettes and have their own unique look, with black case instead of plastic shell, but they play in standard VHS players.

While most cartridges are multi-game packages that contain eight to ten titles each, there were also several one game releases which came packed in clear cases so you could see the colorful label art without having to open them up first!

All past Vectrex games now available for purchase will play on any NTSC console manufactured after 1982 (when this was introduced). If your console is an earlier version it may still work if you upgrade its power supply with either a new AC adapter or battery pack – both of which can be found on eBay.
