Vectronom is a moving and jumping game where you control a block moving through a level that's changing in time with the music. The primary colours and hypnotic beats can distract at first, but as you find the flow of moving in time with the beat a unique rhythmic game is revealed.

NotesAccessibility Notes


This is a difficult game that gets progressively harder. There are no settings to make this easier but you can attempt each level as many times as you want.

There's a Colour aid option and the ability to disable the background. You can unlock a Free Tempo mode. There are visual cues that match the beat of the music. These help players move in time to the music.
