Summary

Gameplay / Overview
Edit

This is mostly just a graphical update of Space Invaders, having a nice background with mountains and a planet on the screen.  There are only three bunkers (as opposed to usually four), the invaders look cartoonish (especially the one with its tongue sticking out, looking like it's sick) and the mystery ship is now a dragon.

Homebrewer John Dondzila sure has done a lot for the Vectrex, which included many "firsts": he released not only the first new Vectrex game in over 10 years after the Vectrex bit the dust, but that game was also the first Vectrex homebrew ever (of Vector Vaders, in 1996). He also released the first Vectrex cartridge with more than one game on it with Patriots, which contained that game and a hidden bonus one on the cartridge as well. And he ALSO broke down many barriers with All Good Things: it was not only the first 16K cartridge for the Vectrex ever, but it also had a whopping five games on it as well...another first.
