A side-scrolling parkour game that owes big debts to the likes of Canabalt and Mirror’s Edge, Vector manages to be stylish, addictive and maddeningly tough all at the same time.
The game sees you as a free-running Neo-in-The-Matrix type character pursued over rooftops and through buildings by taser-wielding agents.
