Vektor Grafix was a United Kingdom computer game development company led by John Lewis and Andy Craven. The company was based in the city of Leeds.

Vektor Grafix was founded by Craven and Danny Gallagher in 1986. Their first release was a port of the Star Wars arcade game for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro and Commodore 64 home computers, published by Domark. A DOS version followed (published via Broderbund in the USA), with a port of The Empire Strikes Back quickly in its wake.

Vektor went on to become a leading developer of 3D simulation games, and was eventually taken over by MicroProse in 1992, becoming their Leeds development studio.
