A new Vector game for my SGIs, how COOL is that! (Tempest is still one of my favorite Arcade game)
I'll check it out during the Christmas holiday.

Thanks for producing cool stuff to our colored boxes Martin!

You're welcome!

In 1982, I saw the game "Rip Off" at a funfair. Since then, I wanted to do a remake.

I hope there are no problems with the game. It was testet on my Fuel (V10) and Octane (ESSI) and
Geoman's Octane2 (V12). The game should run on any Octane/O2 or better. It uses the SDL instead of
GLUT, so you need the Nekoware SDL.
(only the basic SDL is needed, see "readme" on the homepage).

Best regards, Martin

Awesome... I've got the home version of Rip Off for the Vectrex, so I'll have to try this out!

(although I'm pretty poor at this particular Vectrex game... much prefer Fortress of Narzod)

Great game, many thanks!
By the way, I can confirm that on my O2 (R10k/250) it works very well!

Is is possible to use spacebar for firing, please?

I tried it out last night and can confirm that it runs great on my Indigo2 MaxImpact. It's pretty good! Thanks! :D

Plays smooth as silk on my O2 with a 270MHz CPU. Thanks for the addictive game.
