In Vex 7, the next dungeon-crawl edition of the highly successful Vex platformer series, the stickman has discovered even more challenging and deadly labyrinths and dungeons. The player must help him successfully navigate each level (Act).
As with previous editions, the labyrinths supply some of the most deadly, thrilling and vexing challenges found anywhere. The stickman must survive spikes, rotating and bouncing circular saws, dropping box platforms, TNT crates, double-rotating scythes, movement-tracking missiles and sword-wielding knights.
To prevent bloodshed, the player can make the stickman run left or right, jump and flip, duck down or slide, swing with a grappling hook, glide through dangerous zones with a kite, use parkour moves to climb pillars and walls and swim through pools of water. A wide range of helpful tools exist in the labyrinths as well, including keys to open chests, torches to blow up explosives, orange bouncy blocks and potions to extend jumps and even a bubble shield to briefly protect against every hazard.
The player can collect stars and golden Vex coins Tower coins across the 10 Acts and Tower of Terror modes, respectively, to buy new character skins from among dozens of common, rare, epic, legendary and mythic figures, including pirate, ninja, princess and police officer options. They can also also complete daily tasks and win achievements and trophies.
