Xtreme Beam Vector Arcade
XTREME BEAM VECTOR ARCADE, featuring STAR CANNON, is now available for download on the App Store, for iPad and iPad Mini.
Star Cannon is the first game to appear in the app. The plan is for the app to eventually contain multiple vector games, including games with more original concepts. Care was taken to create an app that draws vector lines on the iPad screen in a very similar manner to vintage vector arcade hardware. The XTREME BEAM VECTORLINE rendering engine generates smooth, alias free, vector lines with an authentic vector glow!
The app replicates a black and white, bi-level, vector monitor with color overlays. Choose the CLASSIC COLOR overlay for the vintage look or DYNALAY for a dynamic color changing overlay, something that was not possible in the arcades, back in the day.. Or just play in black and white for that bare, white line, vector monitor look.
Screenshots and iPhone videos don't really do the app justice.. You need to see it running on an iPad device to fully appreciate it! Set the iPad brightness control to manual and turn the brightness on your iPad screen up to about 75% to 80% intensity for the best simulated vector monitor experience.
Unlike some apps that try to simulate vector monitor graphics, this one will actually run on a 1st Generation iPad! It will run on ANY iPad! The XTREME BEAM VECTORLINE engine is FAST and EFFICIENT!
