    While at times perhaps a little lacklustre, escapeVektor had all the potential in the world to have been so much more than the sum of it's deliciously minimalistic parts. With an intriguing narrative and pretty Pac-Man-esque visuals that serve as wonderful throwback to 'the good old days', escapeVektor certainly looks and feels the part, but even they cannot detract from a small, yet potentially deal-breaking flaw. And that's an overly zoomed-in camera view, which necessitates the requirement to play almost the entire game while holding down on the left shoulder button to pan the camera out to a more manageable viewpoint. What starts off as merely a mild irritant, soon becomes frustrating to the point of cursing the lack of an option to simply toggle between views and just giving up. Even an option of switching this around (to holding down to zoom and releasing to pan back out) would have worked so much better. Of course, I'm aware that this may only sound like a very small thing, but so was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back. EscapeVektor is recommended (with caution) for retro enthusiasts and some corners of the hardcore gaming community, but the more casual gamers out there will probably want to give this one a miss. At least until Aussie developer, Nnooo wakes up and fixes that camera! Full Review »
