With more than 100 million players worldwide since its release in 2012, action game Vector has been a huge hit. Now the developer, Nekki, has announced that the highly anticipated sequel Vector 2 is now available for $1.99 on the App Store.
Powered by Nekki’s proprietary “Cascadeur” animation engine, Vector 2 is a side-scrolling action game where players can execute stunts while running to complete missions. In development for over two years, the game is set in the same dystopian sci-fi setting and continues the original game’s storyline as the lead protagonist is trapped inside a huge and deadly research complex.
In effort to stay true to the original Vector game, Nekki has also made a great effort to improving the overall experience by making each game session as unique as possible through procedural level generation. There’s even new gadgets and settings that have also been introduced to increase the challenge for players, which is a nice thing to see.
- Procedural level generation – Each game level is assembled at random. A clever generation technique keeps the game challenging with every new run and always offers a chance for exploration.
- Permadeath – There is no reloading of checkpoints.
- New settings – Laboratories, factory-lines and spaceports are just some of the futuristic settings to visit.
