escapeVektor is a retro styled arcade game in which the player
controls Vektor, an entity trapped inside the player’s
CPU. The player has to help Vektor escape the CPU which has
been holding him captive. In making his escape, Vektor must get
through obstacles and avoid enemies, each with different hunting
patterns and intelligence. As the player completes the various
levels in the game, escape becomes more difficult. New abilities
unlock to help the player outwit and destroy the CPU’s army.
As the player continues through the game, old code and memories are
unlocked which reveal more about Vektor’s past.
The release of escapeVektor follows last year's release of the
critically acclaimed and award-winning escapeVektor: Chapter 1 on
WiiWare™. Initially planned as a 4-chapter series, Nnooo
decided to roll all the chapters into one game and release it on
the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita.
"There are 150 levels in escapeVektor, spread across 27
different worlds," said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. We've
also included additional enemies and obstacles, 3 types of online
leaderboard and a new Wildcard system. We're really happy with how
this "complete edition" version of the game has turned out."
Players will be able to check their scores for each level of the
game against scores of their friends, other players in their area
and all players in the world using escapeVektor's 3-tier
leaderboard system. In addition, when a player completes a level
for the first time, or beats a previous high-score on a level, they
will be awarded a Wildcard. Wildcards can be played before starting
a level and will double a player's score if they successfully
complete that level. However, the Wildcard will be lost if the
player fails to complete the level.
"The game uses the unique features of each handheld device,"
said Watt. "We're using the 3D graphics of the Nintendo 3DS to
bring the game to life. On the PS Vita we use the gyroscope and the
touchscreen to adjust the camera angle and move Vektor around in
the overworld maps."
escapeVektor will also be released on PlayStation Vita in the
US. Release date and pricing will be announced soon.
