Background[]

Vectorbolt is a digest-size, full-color magazine for vector gaming enthusiasts published by George Pelonis of FURY Unlimited. It features game reviews and articles of interest on the vector gaming scene. Like this wiki, its content is strictly vector-only, although it expands beyond home vector gaming to also include arcade vector gaming. Raster games are only covered in the context of vector remakes or ports from vector to raster and back.

Availability[]

Its first two issues were published in 2014 and a third issue is in production with an anticipated release date in the first quarter of 2015. Issues average around 32 pages. Subscriptions and back issues are available for order at http://furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m4_1.htm.  The magazine is available worldwide with payments via PayPal.
