Vector Review

  Hello everyone and happy Wednesday, hope your all doing great.  Today I am once again diving into the world of portable games. While I was going to review a awesome reboot of a stealth game, I was running alot this weekend and felt it suiting to sit down and play a parkour inspired run game called Vector.  The original release to the tablet made its debut on November 28 of last year.  Created by Nekki Game studies with the idea to bring fast paced parkour action the mobile device.  While there is a little story to the game, it does explain whats going on pretty well, so here it goes.  Vector takes place in a futuristic urban environment where human freedom is non existent and everything is control by a few select people in power.
     The one and only cutscene in the game shows that people do what they are told without question and that these tyrants in power have robbed you of the true that you can do without any restraint: free thought.  However you are a normal guy living like everyone else when one day amongst your hundreds of fellow brain washed buddies when it is likely you have been up to a building point of longing for freedom for a long time and in a moment of strength, you rip your mind headset off.  As you rip your shirt off and run out of your cubicle and find yourself chased by peacekeepers, you leap out the window and the game begins.  Throughout the game, you will have access to many areas and environments in which the player will duck, jump and climb towards the ultimate goal of freedom.  Along the way you will encounter little cubes that are worth points that allow you to get a better score at the end of the level.  There are also little circle collectibles that are worth money which in turn allows you to purchase parkour moves that make it easier to traverse the terrain and get a higher score at the end of the game.  This also makes the gameplay experience twice as awesome.
     You can attain up to three stars for each level, while the stars don't seem special at first, you start to see the significance as you near the end of the area.  Each area contains up to twelve levels, in order to unlock the next area you need to attain three stars for every level in a area.  Every play through is different with many mistakes likely to happen on the first try, consistent failure is likely to help you find the best way to traverse a level.  I find this a fun and captivating game for audiences of all ages that any individual on the go should try. It's also free, so no excuses, just try it and you'll love it.  Also a quick announcement to all, the Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2: A House Divided is out now! This new chapter in this episodic game series looks awesome and I will play as soon as I have some time, so keep an eye out for that now.  I hope you have enjoyed this review and I will be back next week with a new post.  Until then, have fun.  This has been Jacob Arnold, signing off.
