Ever wish games were fun again, like when they were lovingly handcrafted line segment by line segment that your grandpappy used to make?

Ahhh, those were the days. Yep, back then you played a game, instead of watching it through cutscenes. You didn’t need no fancy whizbang graphics either, and the dragons looked vaguely like ducks. Yes, Kid Vector is an homage to a simpler time, when games were only about fun, children listened to their parents, and coins were collected instead of bought in packs for $24.99.

Kid Vector is a platformer that features a nouveau retro 2.5d world full of glorious vector graphics. Throughout the game you’ll encounter mysterious UFOs, relentless space worms, and a very angry vector dragon. There are 15 levels to explore, sure to challenge your platforming mettle. If you dare risk retro overload, you can play Kid Vector on your iCade as well.

So grab a lemonade, snuggle up to your newfangled iDevice, and relive the good old days with Kid Vector.

Great retro platformer


If you're a fan of platform games you'll love this, if you're a fan of retro graphics you'll love this even more ! I dont think theres a vector platformer on the app store, this must be the first.

Firstly the controls work very well, theres resume points in the game so you shouldnt get too frustrated if you have to start again. You can double jump, some nice sound effects in the game also.

Looks to be a fair few levels, first couple are quite easy and then apparently it gets more trickier. I loved Blast Soccer and this is another great vector game from this one-man band. Looking forward to his next game, this is a great retro style platformer, brilliant stuff
