Game Details

This was the last game the Cinematronics spin-off company Vectorbeam made.

A two-player only game, Warrior featured a top-down view of two warriors with swords using vector graphics. The play field was a detailed, brightly colored overlay.

Each player used a joystick to move both the warrior. The game was time-limited, and the warrior with the most kills at the end was the winner. A kill was scored with either a series of good sword hits to the opponent, or by an opponent falling into one of the two pits.

**** by goat. Comment: "It's very cool. Although the "256 colors" statement isn't true. It's a monochrome vector display with an actual 3D playfield that is lit by blacklight. I found some eproms and piggybacked "Tailgunner" onto the motherboard on my Warrior. The amazing thing about the game is that it has no microprocessor - it's all done in discrete logic!
