Vortex Attack World Championship Series Has Begun

Vortex Attack World Championship Series Has Begun

Developer Kaleido Games has announced that the Vortex Attack World Championship Series has begun.

Vortex Attack is an arcade coin-op frantic shooter with regular online tournaments and is based on the addictive old coin-ops that have eaten so many of our quarters. It started small but it has become a full grown arcade game with its own dedicated cabinet . It all feels very retro, but modern. The developer has spent a very long time tweaking everything, and promises that it’s a lot of fun now.

Vortex Attack, after all, is more or less a spin-off Galaga with a lot of extras that modern technology allows us to implement today.
