"Velocity, and it’s reworked update Velocity Ultra, won fans the world over. It’s perfectly formed fun that was wonderful thanks to the pure simplicity of it all. Players would just point the Quarp Jet, and then go headfirst into a level, aiming to get the best times and strive for that perfect run. Puzzles would be an obstacle, but an obstacle that was enjoyable to achieve, memory-mapping each switch location and the quickest way to teleport around to grab survivors and hit some switches. So, with Velocity 2x on the cards I was curious as to how you could improve upon near perfection; and my curiosity was well deserved, because 2x falls just short of the mark.
"In fairness, it had lofty heights to achieve – heights that had it been a sequel to any other game, it would have surely surpassed. But Velocity 2x is a confused work of art."
