Vec Wars: Retro Devolved is the first game by programmer Garry Grierson and is freely available to download from his blog. This is a multi-directional Berzerk-type shooter in the vein of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved. The game has been made available as-is and all development work has been reported as ceased.
The aim of the game is simply to survive for as long as possible and get the high score. The player moves a Galaxy Wars-style ship around the screen shooting different types of enemies which get increasingly harder to hit and avoid as the player progresses through the game. When killed, the player's ship jumps to a random place on the screen and they will have a few seconds before the enemies become active again. A further wrinkle is that the player can only shoot for so long until an energy bar empties and the player will have to avoid things until it is full again.
