Rip Off (Vectrex game)

Rip Off is a very simple shooter. There are a bunch of fuel cells in the center of the screen, and pirates will come to steal them (there are 6 different kinds of pirates, the only difference being their shape). Your ship will keep re-spawning as long as you have fuel cells to guard. I've tested this by ramming ever pirate instead of shooting them. Not using the fire button actually provides a nice diversion to the otherwise bland action. There's nothing necessarily wrong with Rip Off. Everything is nicely animated, collision detection is good, controls are good, and everything that should work does work. The only knock is that it's pretty boring. Somehow all the pieces don't add up to an interesting game.
