Vex 7 continues the highly popular, dungeon-crawl platformer series of the same name with the player attempting to help the stickman try yet again to navigate deadly challenges and obstacles found in a variety of complex labyrinths. Each level or Act contains both old and new heart-pounding threats, including spiked objects, bouncing and rotating saws, explosive crates, motion-tripped missiles, rotating scythes and even knights waving swords!
The player helps the stickman race past these dangers by making him perform different physical movements and stunts, such as running or sliding right or left, jumping up and down, flipping, swinging from ropes and grappling hooks, climbing walls, swimming in water and gliding with a kite. They also use objects found in each dungeon to destroy obstacles or protect the stickman, such as torches that explode crates and bubble shields, respectively.
The player earns and wins gold Vex coins that they can then use to buy new types of stickmen from five unique categories (Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary and Mythic), such as a ninja, a pirate and a princess. The can also win trophies if they find and collect stars and complete certain achievements.
How to play:
Direct the stickman through each of the Acts and the separate Tower of Terror mode. Earn and collect Vex coins. Find stars and complete tasks to win trophies. Upgrade the stickman with new versions or skins.
