    Anyone with a fond taste for such arcade classics as Qix, Pac-Man and the more recent Cubixx are likely to thoroughly enjoy escapeVektor, whilst anyone with an eye for action puzzle games in general will equally be hooked.
  2. An interesting and stylish game that unfortunately lacks the charm necessary to cover the problems of the port.

    Basically a Pac-man clone without much personality of its own.

    escapeVektor is a smartly designed game which requires great skill both in the puzzle and in the action genre. It is also difficult, long and rewarding. Unfortunately the situations in the game tend to repeat themselves, and its aesthetic minimalism, while good for someone, will be a minus for many gamers.

    For short periods of time escapeVektor is a great game. The more time you invest in playing however, the more you see the flaws.

    escapeVektor is one of those fun little games that most people will overlook. It's a fast-paced puzzle game with loads of challenging action and quick thinking, clever level design and good atmosphere. It's a must for those who need something small on their portable gaming device.

    Niggles aside, escapeVektor is a game in which everything included works perfectly and anything left on the cutting room floor isn't missed. It's a fantastic value in addition to being fantastically fun to play, and it belongs on every 3DS.

    It's a smart concept, skilfully realised in the main, and yet it's compromised by a truly boneheaded piece of design: the default perspective offers such a limited view of the field of play that you're forced to squeeze the zoom button throughout to make it playable, with no option to toggle it.

    EscapeVecktor is a simple and thrilling puzzle-maze game that evolves its gameplay dynamics along the adventure development. An authentic "game drug".

    A very interesting title, whose content could have been improved. We may feel it's quite repetitive, so we recommend taking our time to go through it, having even a little break between episodes.

    Make no mistake: escapeVektor is a great game. It's not without its flaws, but they're extremely minor when compared against everything the game gets exactly right.

    Minor issues aside, escapeVektor still packs a lot; in addition to the story and online leaderboards, the game features a variety of achievement-like badges, and every level has four high score medals.
