    Vector Blaster.

    It is very much like the classic arcade game Tempest...and definitely in the style described.

    Oh yeah...and 3D Vector Ball.

    Most people who don't grow up with it won't find it appealing.

    Back in the eighties vector graphics were the coolest and most spectacular 3d we had ... It's for the nostalgia factor
