Free run to safety with Vector

Jump, climb, and slide your way away from the bad guys with Vector.

With this exciting game, even couch potatoes can find their inner free-runner. Vector is chock-full of exciting parkour moves and dozens of levels. It's a ton of fun if you like side-scrolling chase games, but most of its content requires a ton of play or cash to unlock.

At first, it's very difficult to find the small settings button to turn off the game's blaring music. That's the only knock on the game's appearance, though. The graphics are very smooth and run without a hitch, even on phones with outdated processors. Vector doesn't start off challenging, but it gets really tough fast. Timing jumps perfectly is worth it, just so you can see the game's cool jump animations. The game has a ton of levels, but by the time you hit the second one, you're already behind on the coins you need to unlock must-have moves. You can unlock some special jumps and levels through playing, but most require coins. In order to get them all, you're going to have to repeat some levels you've already beaten a few times. Every time you finish a level, an ad pops up offering thousands of coins for completing surveys or downloading apps.

This game seems to be an obvious cash grab for developers, but that doesn't make it less enjoyable. If you don't mind the annoying pop-up ads that come loaded on most good games anyway, you'll love Vector. It's challenging enough to keep you coming back for more. That's good, because you need to play it a lot to even think about unlocking all of the tricks you want.
