"A unique spectical of light and sound that captures the mystery, whimsy, and charm of a long forgotten era of classic gaming."
"... the game is completely fair with it's difficulty, and if you're up for the
challenge the reflex heavy gameplay is a rewarding and satisfying experience."
"... Trace Vector is a shining gem and hopefully a glimpse of awesome things to come this year in indie gaming." - Retroware TV
You're lost in space.
Can you make it home?
Deep in un-explored space, the small space craft Aurora finds itself unfathomably far from home. There's no hope of any Earth system finding this lost ship, but its presence has not gone un-noticed.
A neglected hyperspace network appears before it to point the only way home.
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 consider 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.
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. Simple tight controls, fast action, straight forward objectives, and awesome music. Of course, Trace Vector was designed to run at 60 frames per second.
Composed by electronic mastermind Flexstyle; the unique, driving, high energy, and evolving soundtrack matches your progress through each of the twelve zones. Every time you complete a level the soundtrack will kick up a notch and become more complex and exciting. Every single set of levels in Trace Vector has it's own unique track! These tracks are specially formatted for the game so they will transition seamlessly. That's why the soundtrack edition features remastered tracks that are perfect to listen to on their own such as in your car or spaceship!
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 warp to the next location. 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. Do you have the skills to return home safely?
Hop into the much shorter, simpler, and faster game mode and go for distance. There's only one goal in this mode; don't crash. The dynamically generating level grows in front of your ship as you play. Every instant alive increases your distance score as you continuously begin to approach ludicrous speeds! Try to survive as long as you can and knock those scores off the charts!
