AVICII INVECTOR Best Pc Game REVIEW Through tracks like Levels, Waiting for Love and Wake Me Up, Avicii soundtracked my — on reflection, misspent — evenings in Portsmouth nightclubs. I foolishly recall grumbling that when I’m older, “you’ll never hear me working at 3 a.m. on a weekday.” Instead, I’m doing exactly that for the best part of ten years later. Except this time I’m toe-tapping away at the harmless earworms in my flat by Tim Bergling. And of all slippers.
Avicii Invector isn’t the average game of rhythm-action you can easily download in oceans of games. The album, which aimed at expanding Bergling’s brand of electronic dance and house music by integrating it with immersive and mesmeric worlds, launched in 2015, but in April 2018, the Swedish club phenomenon passed away. Hello There Games and Bergling’s squad finished the game away, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Tim Bergling Charity, helping those with mental health issues. This imbues the final encounter of intense poignancy underneath the cheerful sheen of the party anthems of the Swedish DJ.
The final experience is 25 of the greatest hits by Avicii divided into five different, yet ravishing, universes. Similar to Amplitude or Thumper, you fit notes to a matching button on your pad— I prefer this to keyboard buttons, but they also work fine— on three different types of lane that make sure that no song becomes a hassle.
Next, and shortest, is a flat path where your ship bounces merrily from one point to the next, but you will have to move laterally to reach all of them. Next are the triangular paths, where you turn onto the correct side of the lane. Maneuvering the wrong way will turn you upside down, when notes fly past you. The third and final form is not really a lane at all: it totally rockets you off the road, allowing you floating goals to fly towards.
