  • Vector 1 was a very original endless runner, that banked on the popularity of Mirror’s Edge and parkour titles out there. Now, Vector 2 is available, or better said it has been ever since this Spring. We played it on the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) and you’ll find it for free in the Play Store.

    Coming from Nekki the game follows a title with 80 million installs. It’s still a runner, but this time for some reason it happens indoors. Side scrolling and endless running are here and the story has Orwellian elements. Action is split into levels, that in turn are split into some sort of tiers, that have to do with equipment somehow.

    Said equipment protects you from lasers or mines, otherwise you’re a sitting duck in quite a few levels. The controls are based on swiping, up, down and right to run, plus you can climb, perform tricks and more, by swiping at the right time. Graphics are shown as shadows of the characters and I don’t feel that the graphics and level design have evolved much from Vector 1.

    The game has been in development for two years, has smooth animations and a pretty high level of difficulty, which frankly speaking I like. I also feel that the game was slower than the first Vector, so drawbacks keep piling. In the end it’s a fun and a bit frustrating game, that doesn’t live up to the hype. It’s still fun and unique…

    We give it an 8 out of 10 and you get it here.
