Description

Vectronom is a rhythm-based 3D platformer played in isometric view. Obstacles in the levels change in sync with the music, forcing players to memorize patterns and solve environment-specific riddles while moving to the beat of the music.

History

You play with the arrow keys (WASD). We recommend headphones or speakers when playing, the key is to dance as much as possible to follow the beat seamlessly.
