Players will have to manage resources throughout their campaign to liberate the digital world. Money, smartbombs, consumable power-ups and (most importantly) lives are in finite supply in Vectorlord, and running out of lives means Game Over for that entire save file. It’s possible to recover lost lives through a Dark Souls-inspired dash back to where you previously fell, if you’re up for the challenge. If you’re not feeling quite so daring, Vectorlord offers multiple difficulty modes, and a panel of visual accessibility options for photosensitive players

Bits & Bytes

  • Classic ‘90s DOS aesthetics meets modern shooter in a world of neon excess.
  • Combine any two weapon power-ups into an even deadlier bullet-spraying hybrid.
  • Ascend the deadly Infectophage tower before it destroys the Vectorlord’s world.
  • Replay past levels to gather resources, but beware – enemies grow stronger each time.
  • Shoot, teleport, kick, and master a variety of powerful tide-turning consumable items.
  • Not just for the hardcore. Difficulty levels tuned for casual players and arcade gods alike.
  • Old-school chaos designed with accessibility in mind – tone down the neon if you need it.
