Description

In Vectronom, players must memorize patterns and solve environment-specific riddles while moving their hopping cube to the beat. Obstacles change in sync with music as this colorful madness gets harder from level to level, challenging the player’s three-dimensional thinking. With the option of hooking up alternate controllers such as dance pads, Vectronom might even get you moving more than your fingers and brain cells.

Features

  • Challenging single player campaign
  • Each level features original electronic beats and a colorful, dynamic art style
  • Play with friends via local, drop-in/drop-out multiplayer
  • Level Editor - Create your own wacky levels using curated beats and challenge the world with never before seen rhythmic puzzles.
  • Use alternate controllers like dance pads or MIDI instruments
  • Create your own soundtrack - hook up to an analogue synthesizer via the headphone output and compose live music as you play along
