OverviewOverview

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.

Play involves timing your moves to progress along the pulsing geometric path that changes with the beat. All set to a hypnotic electronic soundtrack. It sounds easy, but the intuitive gameplay soon ramps up the challenge. Spikes, disappearing platforms, moving elements and pointy enemies.

Set off on a solo campaign with just your headphones for company, or invite a few friends to join the party. At the end of each set of level, you get a score based on the number of retries, collecting all the items and how well you were in time with the rhythm. This offers a reason to replay and improve.

You can also create your own levels share them and play the creations of others. Vectronom features a fully-fledged level editor which will allow you to build mind-bending musical puzzles.
