Mirror’s Edge



Mirror’s Edge is an action-adventure platform game where the player must control the protagonist, Faith Connors, from a first-person perspective and navigate a city.[1] To progress through the game and its storyline, the player needs to complete a series of levels that involve performing a linear sequence of acrobatic manoeuvres.[2] These include jumping between rooftops, running across walls, climbing pipes, walking along ledges, sliding down zip lines, and getting past opponents controlled by the game’s artificial intelligence.[3] Faith’s arms, legs, and torso are prominent and their visibility is used to convey her movement and interactions with the environment.[4] Her momentum is an important aspect of the gameplay,[5] as preserving it through multiple obstacles allows the player to run faster, jump farther and climb higher.[3] To help players chain moves seamlessly, the game employs a navigation system, called Runner Vision, which turns certain objects in a bold red color as Faith approaches them, allowing the player to instantly recognize paths and escape routes.[4]
