Über dieses Spiel

Vector is an exciting, arcade-style game featuring you as the exceptional free runner who won’t be held down by the system. The game opens with a view into a totalitarian world where freedom and individually is nothing more than a distant dream. But the heart of a freerunner is strong, and you so break free. Run, vault, slide and climb using extraordinary techniques based on the urban ninja sport of Parkour all while being chased by “Big Brother” who’s sole purpose is to capture you and bring you back.
Inspired by the practice and principles of Parkour, Vector’s intuitive controls please players of all levels, and sophisticated level designs challenge the most demanding players with fast-paced timing puzzles as the traceur “flows” over the rooftops.

- Hunter Mode: Tired of being chased? Start fighting on Big Brother’s side and hunt down opponents to shock them with your trusty taser!
- Controller Support: Enjoy the run with your favorite gamepad!

The best parkour-inspired action game! Vector lets you break free and run! Don’t get caught!

Exposition, Concurrence and Summation
Vector is a runner. It's more puzzle and timing based than reaction speed. After the initial run that is; The opening cut-scene informs you of a world not dissimilar to a cyberpunk “1984”. It's essentially a 2D Mirrors Edge.

Simple and easy to grasp. There are only three basic main controls. Up to jump, down to slide and right/left to dash faster. You are always perpetually running. The main objective of Classic mode is to get to the end of the level and this will grant you one star along with any money you collected along the way. (I'll come back to the money)

There is a 3 star rating system for each level and this is where the hidden depth comes into play. Completing the level will get you 1 star. Collecting all the gems will get you another and performing all tricks will net you the last. Tricks need to be unlocked through purchasing them with the aforementioned money and activated during the level by pressing up when they prompt you. So they aren't real tricks per se but they are indeed about learning how to traverse the level to collect all the things.

The thing is you have to do all 3 things in one run and the path you need to take is almost never obvious to accomplish this. For instance vaulting over the desk rather than jumping over it to grab the gem and be in the right position to do the trick afterwards is quite a feat for the mind. You must also be aware that you are being chased and you must keep your speed up. Climbing over a water tower instead of sliding under to get into a new path to grab that gem just out of reach feels ever so satisfying once accomplished.

The game has this very “Trials” feel, where you are constantly restarting to get something right or to do it better. I have to mention failing is also quite brutal at times. Smashing into a building at full speed is quite the sight given the physics.

There is also an additional mode in which you play as the chaser and not the chased called “Hunter” which is fine but I had far less enjoyment playing this. I always felt as though I was one step behind.

THE GIST
Fluid animations and well timed planned actions make you feel unstoppable. It's that one last try mentality from trials that makes this golden. It's relaxing, exciting and challenging simultaneously. Easily one of my favorite casual/palette cleansers out there.

Great game. For people who loved the game "Mirrors Edge" and like parkour it's a good choice. It's has many similarities with Mirrors Edge but, of course, it's 2D.
  • liquid movements
  • cool tricks
  • pretty levels
  • the degree of difficulty rises per level
About the story, i have to say, it is virtually absent. Our main character breaks out, of a kind of dictatorship. Then he is persecuted by some police men.
The game has not much details but originally it was planned for smartphones and tablets (it exists an Vector app).

But I had and have still much fun with this game. I try to unlock all achievements. That will be hard but I'm on a good way.

Simple, yet very challenging.

If you play it casually, like just getting to the end of the level without getting caught, it's an easy and enjoyable time-waster. But if you try to attain the highest score in each level (and you'll likely want to eventually), it can be a very difficult game.

Trying to get all 3 Stars is trial and error, and there are no checkpoints which may mean restarting the level a lot. It requires memorization of the level and good reflexes. One way I learned to make things a little easier is to use the level's graphical features, like the chairs or tables in the background or the small dents on the ground, as "cues" to jump or slide.

I don't recommend buying this game at full price. Grab it during a sale, or, if you have an Android or iOS device, get the mobile version instead, as it's barely any different from the PC version and it's a lot cheaper (only < 50 PHP). There's supposed to be a level editor and Steam Workshop support for the PC version, which should justify the price, but they were never implemented, and info about them can no longer be seen in the game's description so Nekki has most likely scratched it.

Fun game to pass the time, levels are challenging at time but they do not genereally enrage people.
Pros:
+Fun
+Cheap
+Purchasable items with ingame credits
Cons:
-Short levels sometimes
-Small variety of soundtrack's.

Overall I thing this is a good game and a fun one too.
You might get bored after a while but it's fun to come back.
9/11 or sayin it's great.

Still No Level Editor yet it still says it on the Front Page, was the only reason I got this after playing the Mobile Version when it first came out on Steam.

Vector for Steam will become even more unique thanks to controller support (already implemented) and two new game modes that will be delivered as free DLC soon after the release:

- Hunter Mode: Tired of being chased? Start fighting on Big Brother’s side and hunt down opponents to shock them with your trusty taser!
- PC exclusive Level Creator: Build your own dystopian stage with Nekki’s user-friendly editor or tweak the game rules changing the game’s XML files!

Hach einfach schön diese flüssigen Bewegungen. Erinnert mich irgendwie an Mirrors edge, nur von der Seite.
Für alle Fans des Genre (jump n' run) ist das Spiel der Hammer! Die Level sind schön schwer, was manche allerdings nerven könnte, da, wenn man stirbt, den ganzen Level von vorne anfangen muss. Zur Story kann man aber nicht soviel sagen.
Ein namenloser Held hat die Nase von einer (so wie ich glaube) Diktatur voll. Er bricht (sprichwörtlich) aus und rennt vor den,
ich nenne sie mal "Polizisten" davon. In Vector laufen wir in einer etwas detailarmen 2d Umbebungen von links nach rechts.
Die Level hätte man schöner gestalten können. Man muss aber beachten, dass Vector uhrsprünglich für Smartphones und Tablets war.

Was man aber auf jeden Fall verbessern kann ist die Kleidung. Ausser einer Kappe, Schal und Hose (rennt der nackt rum???)
können wir leider nichts an unserem Typen verändern.
Ausserdem hätte ich gerne eine Gamepad-Unterstützung.

Fazit:
Vector ist ein sehr gutes Jump n' run Gelegenheitsspiel, kann aber nicht mit den top Jump n' runns mithalten wie
Rayman Legend oder the Swapper.

There were no negative reviews when I looked, so I gave it a chance. Based on the video, I was expecting a bit more control over the action. The gamplay is too simple to keep me interested, but people who like simple tap-on-time games might like it.

It's a "hit the button on cue" game. The guy automatically runs, and you have to press up, down, left or right on cue to make him jump, slide, or speed up. Special tricks other than those basic moves are done by hitting the up arrow when you're right underneath a 'special trick' cue block. You can't do any trick at any time. You can jump or slide, but not speed up or choose how you vault over an object.

There are no options other than resolution, and there's no gamepad support. (You'd have to use JoyToKey to assign keyboard mappings to your gamepad.) You can't change key bindings.

It has user profile support, so if more than one person plays on your Steam account they can do so without changing your progress. There doesn't seem to be any reason for this though, because there's only one way to do any given level, and you can go back and redo them at any time.

It's not a bad game or anything. The animation is really well done, and the moves flow really well. It plays like a lot of online Flash games, where something complex is happening and you introduce mild changes to it by tapping a button at a specific time.

[EDIT]:
I was getting complaints that people thought I hadn't put enough time into the game to form a good opinion. So, I dove back in.

As a result, I'm downgrading my review. In addition to the gameplay being mind numbingly boring and not delivering on gamepad support (which has since been removed from the store page), there are critical gameplay issues.

First, you have almost no control over what move the guy does to pass an obstacle. He might vault it, or he might jump. The game does seem to take a cue from how close you are to it, but it's a very small target and it makes a lot of difference to where you end up when you regain character control.

Second, whereas he's pretty smart about picking cool-looking moves, he's dumb as a sack of bricks when it comes to jump distance. You can't hop between platforms if they're too close. You'd think he'd figure it out, but he's like "Nope, you pushed up, I'm going for full air-time even if it makes no sense and I fall down that pit." I thought game devs had figured this mechanic out with Mario 1 for NES, but no, apparently not.

Third, you very often find that although you think you did fine in a level and picked up all of the pickups, you do not have enough to buy the next level's skills. You have to either go back and grind that level again, or just play the next level without its extra tricks.

Fourth, I was told world 2 was better and I should get to it before judging. Well, turned out after I suffered through world 1, I didn't have enough stuff to unlock entry to the mystical wonderland of world 2. When you finish world 1, you most likely have to go back and grind world 1 again until you've accumulated enough stars or coins. (And, it's a LOT of coins.)

Fifth, pickups seem to often be a trap. Going for them sometimes seems to be the wrong thing to do, and if you do you always lose.

Sixth, you quite often can't see far enough to the right to make a decision in time to pass an area. When you do the sensible thing, you find out mid-jump that the sensible thing traps you in a corner and makes you restart. So, you just have to beat your head on it until you memorize when those things happen, so you can get by. Given how limited your visibility is vs. the screen real estate available, it looks ridiculous on a PC. Then, just to rub it in, every now and then the camera is scripted to zoom out to the distance where you CAN see things, but only when you don't really need it.

So, I'm downgrading from "I can see some people liking this game but I don't", to "I don't understand why people like this game."

Let the rage comments flow. I've uninstalled this to reclaim the 56 megs of disk, and I'm no longer wishing there was a "meh" option so that I could leave this informative rather than negative.

I first saw this game when I was looking for new cards on the Stream Trading Card Search, and looking at the pictures and the description it sounded like a game I'd like since it's a platformer with parkour elements. After playing the game for over an hour, I 100% approve of buying this game. It's cheap (less then $10 USD!), installs really fast (no kidding, this game is a puny 56MB!), and plays fast too. It's perfect for people who enjoy games like Mirror's Edge (both real game and the 2D platformer made by Brad Borne, creator of the Fancy Pants Adventures games) and platformers like Super Mario, Sonic, and BIT.TRIP RUNNER. Trying to get three stars in all the courses is quite a challenge and requires a lot of dying (which you get achievements for both getting three stars in all courses and the amount of times you've died). Even though I haven't beaten the game yet, I'd recommend all of my friends to at least try/buy this game.
