Xeleh Software Vitrun
There’s a whole backstory behind Vitrun ($2) from Xeleh Software involving space exploration in a post-apocalyptic future, and yeah, a story can add flavor to the game, but it’s not really necessary for a roll-a-ball-through-obstacles title. Vitrun winds up standing tall thanks to really nice graphics, fun gameplay, and hectic pacing, so even if the idea isn’t totally fresh, it’s done really well here.
Over 18 levels, you’re tasked with getting your robotic orb to a goal by controlling it with arrow keys. The whole world is rendered in 3-D, so you must adjust for camera shifts as you turn corners and go up and down slopes. Along the way, you need to dodge obstacles that are blocking your path. Swinging hammers, enemy robots, and more attempt to stop you from getting to the finish line. It’s clear that time and class were put into this one, and it’s worth the low asking price.
