“Since I was interested in the most basic retro B&W vector-licious experience I haven’t tried the 2009 version yet. It really does a good job of looking like a vector screen”
I usually put in a fair amount of options in my games, so in retrospect I’m kinda surprised that I hadn’t added a monochrome mode to my second version of Omega Race. Well, a couple of days ago I decided to do just that.
I added a monochrome mode – still using glowing lines, but as I was finishing it I thought to myself “hey, this is not what I what I wanted to add” so I also added a “pure clean line monochrome version” to it. Very retro.
I also added the option to adjust the amount of glow (in the modes that uses it) which is also present in a couple of my later vector games – just to give people a chance to tweak the look a bit…not all monitors are the same. I also added the option to toggle the background music off. Personally I love the music, but it does enhance the retro-feel to play it without music. Now the option is there so you can chose your preferred style.
Here’s a couple of screenshots from the updated version.
