If you miss going clubbing and losing yourself in the rhythm of the music this year, then Vectronom might just scratch that itch for you.
The rhythm-based 3D platformer released last year lets you immerse yourself in a rejuvenating burst of colour and music with its atmospheric levels in isometric view. The obstacles shift with the music, so you have to navigate through the maddening puzzle platformer by syncing yourself to the electronic beat. It’s frustrating and entrancing at the same time, which guarantees a gaming experience where there’s never a dull moment.
As you get into the groove of this musical puzzle game, you can choose to brave the campaign and go solo, or play with friends in a hypnotizing drop-in, drop-out multiplayer mode. Levels increase in difficulty as you go along, so make sure your hand-eye coordination—and your inner rhythm—is at its absolute best before you dive into this psychedelic world.
Developer Lupodium has also included a PC editor to let you build your own levels or play other players’ works. The game was selected for the 2019 IndieCade Europe, won “Best Game” at the Indie Arena Booth at Gamescom 2018, and the “Best In Play” award at the 2019 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
