During the raid, Vexx's grandfather was killed and young Vexx finds himself inside the ShadowWraith's ship. While inside the ship Vexx discovers mystical Astani Battlegauntlets, which gives him a wide array of special powers. Vexx will need to traverse 18 levels, covering a variety of huge unique environments in order to confront Dark Yabu, free his villagers and avenge his grandfather.Vexx promises many features, from day/night cycles that use real-time lighting effects to the ability to view each level's distinguishing landmark from anywhere in the world in real-time. In addition to this, multiplayer games will be unlocked as the player works his way through the single player portion of the game.
