Distance endless running games are extremely popular but it seems they exploded in popularity for the mobile market. I blame Temple Run for the popularity boost on mobile although I suppose Canabalt is to blame for the genre starting. My point being is that the mobile market for these endless runner games is over saturated and it is hard to really be unique. It is this very reason why most endless runner games you find on the new and upcoming mobile lists are either sequels of already popular games such as Temple Run 2 or clones of popular ones (mainly Temple Run clones). But sometimes a game and developer come along that does make something interesting, hence today's review on Vector.

vector stuntsNow of course at its core Vector does have the foundation of an endless runner mobile game, but it also differs greatly. The main difference is that there is a pseudo storyline (over controlling government, one man escapes and is now being pursued) which leads to a level based running game. So I suppose you really can't call Vector an "endless" runner, just a running action game as you really are just trying to get from the start to finish without your pursuer catching you.

This is where the game gets very interesting though. Right from the beginning Vector mentions that it is heavily influenced by Parkour which is that freestyle running movement where you jump over things in crazy ways. So that is how you play Vector, although all the Parkour stunts are done for you. To play Vector you just swipe up to jump over obstacles and down to slide under things, however at certain points if you have special parkour stunts unlocked then your character does those stunts as well as generally hops over tables and obstacles in a parkour-ish way anyways.

The fluidity of the parkour stunts is the impressive part to Vector as depending on timing your character will do different stunts/hops over obstacles for the same level. This gives the whole game a new depth and level of detail that games such as Canabalt and Temple Run do not have. So if you want to play an episodic running game like the original endless runner front runners but with some spice in it then try out Vector.
