Do you ever feel like jumping out the window of your job and busting some parkour style free-running moves to escape the monotony? You could spend countless hours practicing and punishing your body to develop the necessary parkour skills, or, you could try out this cool new Android game called "Vector." The stylized graphics are fairly unique and intriguing. In many ways it might remind you of an urban version of the ancient console game Pitfall. Regardless, it definitely looks like a blast to play, especially for fans of platformers. Here's a description from the developer:

What is Vector:
Vector is an exciting, arcade-style game featuring you as the exceptional free runner who won’t be held down by the system. The game opens with a view into a totalitarian world where freedom and individually is nothing more than a distant dream. But the heart of a freerunner is strong, and you soon break free. Run, vault, slide and climb using extraordinary techniques based on the urban ninja sport of Parkour all while being chased by “Big Brother” who’s sole purpose is to capture you and bring you back.

Inspired by the practice and principles of Parkour, Vector’s intuitive controls please players of all levels, and sophisticated level designs challenge the most demanding players with fast-paced timing puzzles as the traceur “flows” over the dystopian rooftops.

Game Features:
- Arcade gameplay from the makers of the hit Facebook game
- Astoundingly lifelike Parkour-inspired moves made possible by Cascadeur animation tools
- 30+ awesome, challenging levels, with more and more added with each update
- Quick to learn, challenging to master

The game is free to play although there is a deluxe version for a paltry 99 cents which includes the full 30 levels. There are also optional in-app purchases of coins which give you power-ups, but they don't look too obtrusive or necessary for full enjoyment. The game is highly rated by the community as well.
