Now votable on Steam Greenlight

Trace Vector is a high speed action arcade game with puzzle elements. Featuring a modern take on vector style graphics, Trace Vector plays like an easy to learn, hard to master, game of the golden age of the 80′s video arcades. Race your space ship through each geometric level, grabbing extra fuel cells along the way. Reach a viable goal to shatter the networks' hold on your ship and increase your speed. Simple controls keep you focused on navigating the increasingly complex webs at ever increasing speeds. Collect fuel cells and warp time to assist in the precision maneuvering needed to ace a level! Warping time quickly exhausts precious fuel. If you deplete your fuel and crash, it's game over.

Hyperspace networks have hazards at every turn. Dead end paths, barriers, and worm holes that can send you back in time and space increase the danger; forcing you to think ahead and be prepared to deal with your previous route through the network. Hyperspace is a strange place. Go forth brave pilot. Keep your wits in order, escape the neon labyrinths, and scavenge enough fuel to return home safely.

Key Features

  • A unique driving and evolving soundtrack designed for Trace Vector matches your progress through each of the twelve zones.

  • High score tables track your runs in each zone and let you examine where you can improve for better scores.
  • Vector style graphics on modern hardware provides a smooth 60 FPS experience with adjustable effect levels to ensure maximum performance
  • Proprietary game engine specifically implemented for Trace Vector
  • Support for Windows, Mac OSX, and [Ubuntu] Linux

Can you not get enough of the incredible high energy, 80′s inspired, morphing soundtrack from our game Trace Vector? Well don’t worry, because Flexstyle has assembled a special arranged version of all the music from Trace Vector into a rocking soundtrack!

We didn’t just dump the game files into an album and call it a day. Instead, Flexstyle has taken the morphing layered music from the game and mixed them into 13 tracks (34:04) of remastered beats that are a pleasure to listen to! All the music from the game is in there with some subtle added flairs that will make you want to shoot laser beams from your eyes and do a light speed slingshot around Jupiter into deep space!

I had a blast playing this game the music is fantastic, the gameplay while simple is responsive and increases in difficulty level the further you progress. If you like games like Bit Trip Runner that at times will push your timing and reflexes to the limit then this is for you.

Very fun game that tests your reflexes. The music is incredible, and the graphics style make this a great twist on throwback arcade games. Definitely worth the purchase, and I would highly recommend.
