ALL SOLD OUT WITHIN TWO DAYS
A new batch of Carts might be made later on, best to save the link and keep checking.

Sean Kelly Storefront - http://www.ebay.com/sch/Video-Games-Con ... skelly-etc

Not my auction, but wanted to get the word out. Even though I have most of the original and some home brew carts, this is an outstanding deal! I can finally play Minestorm II and Mr Boston on a real Vectrex Transportable! :mrgreen:

The copyright holder for the entire library of commercially-released Vectrex software is Jay Smith - the former owner of GCE. Mr. Smith has given me written, legal permission to produce and sell this compilation of his games. I have been selling them on eBay from time to time over the past TEN YEARS as do several other eBay sellers. Please do not cancel this auction. This is NOT a copyright violation. There should be a note on my account from other eBay personnel stating that this item is authorized.

It contains the entire Vectrex library less one title - AnimAction. Many of the recently programmed games are on it as well, including those written by John Dondzilla and others for a whopping total of 60 titles! If you've been lucky enough to find a Vectrex console, you probably know how difficult it is to find games for it. The Vectrex multi-cart is the answer to all your Vectrex gaming needs!

Thanks for the heads up, I know what I am getting for Christmas. If only there was an easy way to get controllers or adapters. Id love a Genesis or PSX to Vectrex adapter, I need two of them.

Oh crap, sorry about that. Maybe keep his EBay Store Front linked in case more are produced? According to the description, a set of multi carts are made every year. A chance since the carts moved so fast another batch might be made sooner?

He makes small batches and releases them randomly. This was the biggest batch I have seen him make in a long time. Ill just keep an eye on the various forums and see what people are selling them for, a couple have already popped up for sale.

There is the Sean Kelly multi cart worth searching as well as a couple of home brew carts including the Spinnerama cart that has some of the Vectrex converted for use with a 2600 "Spinner" driving controller. Vectrex is the best for the Vector Cinematronics space games.

That Vectrex Console Cover very rare, congrats on your great find!
Blimey, that is a remarkable collection. Which games do you enjoy most of all?

The best cart would be of course the Sean Kelly Multicart. Keep an eye online for the Multicart, once in a while he sells another batch. Or pay extra for reseller on Ebay. :?

As far as individual games, any of the Space themed (which are many) I like the best. Here are a few of my favorites, all are great renditions of the original Cinematronics Vector Arcade cabinets.

Mine Storm - The built in "Asteroids" game. Sean Kelly Cart has Minestorm II.

Space War - So close to the cabinet with Star Trek and Asteroids ships. Control physics including gravity and ship speed.

Rip-Off - Instead of Asteroids, blast ships before they take all your canistors.

Star Castle - Shoot the shield off at the ship in the center while avoiding drone ships and laser blasts from the center.

Solar Quest - A followup by the same coder of the Cinematronics Arcade Star Castle. Think of it as a single player version of Space War with a gravity sun in the middle.

Omega Chase - A home brew of the Arcade Omega Race, very well done! One of my favorite Vector Spinner control games on Mame, this early Arcade Cabinet put out by Midway.

Web Wars - Dodge and capture objects while scrolling thru a "Star Wars" trench, a neat effect as you speed up and slow down. One you capture a creature, head into the portal to add to your Trophy Room. Okay a gamer's bet; the Vectrex one of the first systems with the common featue of today's consoles; the Trophy Achievements. :D

:lol: I was very lucky to obtain three Vectrex consoles, two on the same day! One "original" very rare cart I would love to get, would be the free by mail back in the day Minestorm. :shock:

I met Sean at his shop in Chicago a year or so ago. Very nice guy.
