  • Summary: Ever wish games were fun again, like when they were lovingly handcrafted line segment by line segment that your grandpappy used to make?Ahhh, those were the days. Yep, back then you played a game, instead of watching it through cutscenes. You didn’t need no fancy whizbang graphics either, and the dragons looked vaguely like ducks. Yes, Kid Vector is an homage to a simpler time, when games were only about fun, children listened to their parents, and coins were collected instead of bought in packs for $24.99.Kid Vector is a platformer that features a nouveau retro 2.5d world full of glorious vector graphics. Throughout the game you’ll encounter mysterious UFOs, relentless space worms, and a very angry vector dragon. There are 15 levels to explore, sure to challenge your platforming mettle. If you dare risk retro overload, you can play Kid Vector on your iCade as well.So grab a lemonade, snuggle up to your newfangled iDevice, and relive the good old days with Kid Vector.Features:- 15 levels to explore- Neato chiptune soundtrack- Collect badges for speed runs, collecting coins, and secret stars- iCade compatible- Game Center achievements Expand

    Kid Vector is the kind of game we need more of. It's fueled by a love of the genre and a desire to have fun. It doesn't attempt to cash in on what's popular at the moment or be a clone. It does its own thing, and it does it with pizazz.

    I found the game to be a real challenge, which seems hard to find these days. For $2, you'll be getting a retro game that you probably won't be able to beat too quickly (unless you're some kind of pro).

    Kid Vector is a cool speed run platformer that can challenge most players intensively. I would have liked to see more story, or at least more variation with power ups for example.

    The one thing I want to see more of from Kid Vector? More levels. Having more content would definitely be welcome. For fans of trial platformers and/or the vector style, this is worth checking out.

    Imbued with a retro style and blessed with tight controls, Kid Vector calls to mind the great platformers of yesteryear, but sadly lacks long-term prospects.

    A fun little platformer using a different take on appealing to nostalgia, but suffers from performance issues.
