Space Wars is a video game released in 1982 for the Vectrex, an early vector display-based home gaming console. The game was a port of the original 1977 arcade game by Cinematronics, itself based on the 1962 Spacewar!, one of the first video games. It featured two spaceships, 'the needle' and 'the wedge', engaged in a dogfight while maneuvering in the gravity well of a star. The Vectrex version of the game was notable for its use of overlays to enhance the vector graphics and for bringing the arcade experience to home users. As a classic space combat game, it has simple mechanics yet offers strategic gameplay. The genre of Space Wars can be classified as a multi-directional shooter.
