App description: 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 didnt 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 youll 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.

TouchGen (4/5) - "The easy to grasp controls, and flashing graphics makes it a joy to play"

Modojo (4/5) - "Kid Vector delivers plenty of 8-bit charm, with tight virtual controls, punishing stages and a dollop of personality for good measure."

I put in a background animations toggle in the settings menu that turns off those animations based on your feedback. The animations are only in the middle 5 levels.

By the way 'Uncade'.

Got any plans for a new game ? Enjoyed the last 'football' one you did with all the balls, a lot of fun. What plans have you got for your next one ?

Yup, I've actually already started working on it

It's my Really Big Game™ and I'll be announcing it in a week or two. Binding of Isaac and Spelunky fans should be pleased.
