Game creator Nekki today announced the launch of a free version of its hit title “Vector” for iPad and iPhone.

Press Release | Vector


DATE: December 2012

“Vector Free” is a limited version of the original game Vector, which has already fascinated 5 million players on iOS, and since its initial launch in summer 2012. Same as the full version, Vector Free is available in two different variants — each optimized for iPhone or iPad hardware.

Vector is an exciting, arcade-style game featuring the player as the exceptional free runner who won’t be held down by a totalitarian system. The game opens with a view into a bleak future world where freedom and individually are nothing more than a distant dream. But the heart of a free runner is strong, and so he breaks

free! He runs, vaults, slides and climbs using extraordinary techniques based on the urban ninja sport of Parkour — all while being chased by Big Brother whose sole purpose is to capture him and bring him back.

Take up your iPhone or iPad and enjoy the +20 unique high-resolution levels, all accessible with an exciting, addicting, one-finger control! Still a predominately single-player experience, but play it once and you’ll see the multiplayer potential is enormous. Nekki plans to add many more thrilling levels regularly, additional game modes and additional languages, as well as an Android release in Q1/ 2013.

Compared to the full version Vector Free consists of 20 (instead of 40) Parkour tracks and displays some unostentatious advertising at the end of each level. Furthermore Vector Free will introduce the “TapJoy” sevice, which gives players the opportunity to earn Vector’s in-game currency “coins” by simply installing some recommended third-party apps.

Press commentary about Vector iOS:

“Everything in this game is picture perfect, starting from graphics, visual effects, animations, sound effects and background music.” (4.9
