While there isn't a ton of depth here -- it's a pretty straightforward rhythm game based on AVICII's music -- this is an enjoyable ride through the late DJ's catalog, which will please fans. Like other rhythm games, your goal in AVICII Invector is to rack up as many points as possible (and achieve a high letter grade) by successfully pressing the correct buttons at the right time. This is pretty standard fare for most rhythm games, but you must also change lanes on the virtual road to fly on top of the icons, rotate the board left or right when instructed to do so, and fly through various aerial markers. The story element with short cutscene sequences, which isn't very prominent (or important), helps give purpose to the game. You'll start with the Valley group of songs, and then you'll unlock additional packs of tracks (as well as song packs purchased separately or bundled with the Encore Edition).

Multiplayer is local play only and supports up to four players: You'll select a song and difficulty level before waiting for your friends to join. Aside from new environments and tracks, the gameplay doesn't evolve much, so it can be a bit repetitive, but you can try to outdo your previous score (or compete against others on the global leaderboard). The difficulty level could also be tweaked, like not giving much direction for new or young players, or Medium levels that feel like they're on Hard difficulty on more advanced levels. That said, the Tron-like neon environments and responsive controls -- and of course, catchy electronic music -- all help you stay engaged whenever you're playing AVICII Invector.
