The sense of speed is great and that feel when you slide under obstacles or bank around corners at full speed... awesome! This isn't AA title but hey, there is hard to find similar game to this one and I assure you that running is really enjoyable. There are 3 types of levels: free run where you grab the power cells, drag where the timing is important and speed where you run with high speed and avoid obstacles. Visual aesthetics with changing theme of colors and electronic soundtrack really fits in. Raising difficulty make this game more and more challenging... good luck with level 41!

Plain in simple in it's delivery, but engaging while playing. T.E.C is a 3D linear running game.

This game feels like it was greatly paid attention to, from the gameplay to the visual details and music. There are three basic modes to T.E.C. The first requires you to run in a straight line and commit to certain dodge techniques. The second sort of works like a grid system, where acceleration and top speed rise sharply and quick manouevers are needed. The third mode consists of free running, where the player is in full control of every tilt their player makes. This last game mode is what makes this game unique. There are levels where I've felt I've barely made the turn but still managed to make it to the end. The free running is extremely fun as you'll quickly be jumping platform to platform (which go in all directions). One thing I've noticed in free running is some courses require the player to make 360 degree turns running up a platform. As the joystick is held in one direction, the player finally starts leaning inwards making a sharper turn, while the camera begins to rotate over the shoulder. This is a cool concept, and makes for a great visual, but can make it hard to control the runner accurately. I also have no idea how to reset the camera back to normal when that happens. On top of creative level design and good control schemes, the game offers local co-op on top of multiplayer. Third and first person views are also a feature in the game.

The visuals are appealing, and game (and menu) colors change with each color-icon you hit. Graphics are sharp but there seems to be more room for improvement here. The backgrounds are quite plain. Level designs are immaculate as there is no one way to go about your business, which makes it welcoming to local co-op. Sounds are few but on point. I like when the runner jumps from a height and that smashing metal sound plays. Music seems to be original and some tracks are quite catchy.

For future T.E.C games, perhaps make a "fight" mode for local co-op where players can run into one another, or perhaps strike each other as a distraction. Also, maybe having an options to designate sensitivity of the joystick would be appreciated, unless the dev's wanted this certain feel.

Rating : 7.35/10

The free form control I was speaking of as well as multiple choices for routes

You can slide in third person or first person

Any game that has double jump, I am a huge fan of

This game is incredibly fun and addictive if you like the sense of speed. Be warned though, it's not a relaxing casual game. Most levels are very hard and require you to learn to manoeuvre your robot very precisely. And even then, a lot will often depend on sheer luck, and you will die dozens of times before you succeed.

There is a large variety of stages, from high speed ones, to the more aerial ones where you perform numerous jumps between platforms, and so on. Some take a form of drag race, where you must time your boosts accurately, others are more open and have multitudes of paths to take through a level.

The main 'campaign' has 41 levels. There are a lot of tough, frustrating moments, but strangely enough you will keep coming back to the game repeatedly to try and beat the level you're stuck on. Once you complete the campaign, you unlock several bonus levels, which, from what I played so far, seem even harder than the original campaign ones. You also have an endless run level, where you keep running and dodging obstacles for as long as you can.

The game has a very nice visual style and cool electronic music. All this helps to enhance the virtual reality atmosphere the game is going for. If high speed challenging games are your thing, then give this game a try.
