If you’re looking for a fresh, new rhythm music experience then Hello There have your back. Featuring a hit set list from Swedish musician and DJ, Avicii, Invector tosses out the audio and visual delights with ease. Forget lumpy plastic drums kits or mini sticked up guitars, that’s in the past. Get ready as this PS4 exclusive takes you to the stars and back.
Invector starts with a beautiful, flowing intro. How everything connects from the off is genius. Your space craft is thrown into the stars and journeys through triangular rail-like tracks. These then loop and bend up into the ether. On screen prompts like square, trigger or cross rack up points when done to the beat and help gain a decent finish percentage. Hit over 75 percent and the next track opens up. The setlist to Invector is pumping. Weather you’re already a fan of Avicii or not, the choice that Hello There have made is spot on. Hats off to them.
Invector comes with three levels of difficulty. The easy mode is your perfect starting point as it eases you in slowly and let’s you enjoy both the virtual art and the music. Taking about visuals, Invector really does look knockout. The backdrop of space and the different worlds display super bright rainbow colours that burst out of the screen.
Inbetween the addictiveness of banging buttons to the beat, there are sections where you’ll zoom away at a tangent and have to guide your craft through neon-tinged hoops dotted in space. There’s also a sweet story that’s being told as you progress. Cut scenes of Stella, an edgy space pilot, help break up the action. The contrast of her exploits against the actual gameplay make things more interesting and Invector even more endearing.
One thing to mention is that Invector is pretty sparse in regards to additional content. You do have split screen multiplayer and leaderboards to aim for, but that’s really about it. That being said, the game does come with a platinum trophy if you’re bang on time and up for the challenge. Another plus is that unlike some rhythm music games like Thumper, which was absolutely brutal in its difficulty, Invector instead wants you to progress and enjoy the sights and sounds without any damage to property.
Invector is a super smooth space music rhythm game that belts out big beats against addictive gameplay. With a class look and feel, Invector delivers a note perfect ride into the stars.
