One of the ultimate collectors items the Vectrex is a vector graphics based system. it has a 9 x 11 inch black and white screen and comes with a built-in Asteroids clone called Minestorm. Games came with plastic overlays that slide over the screen to cut down on flicker and give an illusion of color.

Also included is a self-centering, joystick with 4 buttons on the right. It uses an analog /potentiometer system allowing differing degrees of directional input.

Games such as Minstorm are absolute classics and are still fun to play today. The vector graphic display make this system stand out from every other home console ever made
