Trivia:

2) Game used scalable vector graphics called linesets.

3) Vector graphics are based on vectors, which lead through locations called control points or nodes. Each of these points has a definite position on the x and y axes of the work plane and determines the direction of the path; further, each path may be assigned a stroke color, shape, thickness, and fill.

4) First vector graphics game is Galaxy Game (1971).
