What makes Velocity 2X such a rewarding game is the actual in-game mechanics that are not difficult to master. What makes the game fun is the fact that each level is a race against the clock. Much like the challenge hidden within Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and getting that extra thousand points to break a high score, Velocity 2X’s metric is time. Clearly this was one of the key points of this game design (it is in the name, after all), but one that ultimately works. The game challenges you to replay the same level numerous times to shave mere seconds off of a frantic level as you scramble to achieve a three star victory as opposed to a mere two.
