  • If you love parkour and you loved Mirror’s Edge, know that you can play something vaguely similar on Android now, but from a side view perspective. Imagine a combo between Stickman graphics and a platformer title, with a bit of free running in it. The result is the came called Vector, that we tested on a Romanian tablet called the E-Boda X200.

    This game takes up 48 MB of storage, it’s available for free and it adopts an arcade style that we loved. The story is actually pretty interesting, reminding me of Big Brother and 1984, with all the totalitarian regime vibe and everything. Sophisticated level designs are here and the character’s movements are fluid. You’re being chased by a man of the system, who will try to catch up with you and electroshock you. There are 30+ levels available, in an urban setting, that you’ll go through by jumping, sliding and doing various parkour moves.

    The gameplay is inspired by real life moves and the parkour action is done with the aid of cascadeur animation tools. The gameplay is fast paced and you can even collect various pickups on the side, some triggering very cool moves, like twists and jumps using your environment. You can slide on slopes and do crazy long jumps, among others. The game is up for download here and it gets a 9.7 out of 10 from us.
