Reviews

“I completed the level and was reduced to disturbingly orgasmic cries. I haven’t felt as good with a videogame, in that direct physical way, for quite a while.”
Kieron Gillen, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
“I can't say enough good things about VVVVVV. It's Terry Cavanagh's best game to date, and one of the best platformers I've ever played. If you have any interest in challenging platformers whatsoever, you'd be doing yourself a disservice not to pick up VVVVVV.”
10/10 – Anthony Burch, Destructoid
“...it would be wrong to let the sheer fiendishness of Cavanagh’s offering overwhelm any appreciation of the ceaseless elegance of the design.”
8/10 – EDGE

About the Game

Help! Everyone has been teleported away randomly! As the heroic Captain Viridian, it's up to you to find your friends, bring them back to safety, and save the universe!

VVVVVV is a platform game all about exploring one simple mechanical idea - what if you reversed gravity instead of jumping?

The game is designed not to artificially gate your progress. In VVVVVV there are no locks, no power-ups, no switches, nothing to stop you progressing except the challenges themselves.

Key features:

  • Elegant, minimalistic level design.
  • Challenging, fast and fun gameplay.
  • Frequent checkpoints mean you never have to replay challenges you've already beaten.
  • Over half an hour of chiptune music by composer Magnus Pålsson.
  • Special game modes, including time trials and a no death mode.

+ One of the best soundtracks in recent years.
+ Frequent Checkpoints make the difficult journey accessible to everyone.
+ Challenging. Precise jumping/platforming required.
+ Coherent Map/Warp System fits so well and is a much welcomed feature.
+ Optional Challenges + New Achievements extend the life of the game

- Too short, but oh-so-enjoyable!

This is one of my favorite Indies of all time and the one that introduced me to the scene. Everyone should have it in their library! Oh, did I mention the OST is awesome? Because yeah, it is one of the best soundtracks to grace an adventure/platformer.

I have a serious case of OCD and I've been attempting to get all trophies and achievements this game has to offer for a very, very long time.

The game is costing me a huge feeling of anxiety, constant visions from my past failures, a loss of friends and my couple, a rupture from the real world and my entire life to be simple.

I've already lost my sense of gravity. Please help me.

10/10 would recommend to friends, family, my couple and my enemies.

I have never before been so happy to be enraged!! This was probably the single most fun time I've ever had due to rage!! The sheer anger gave me the motivation to keep on going, to not let the game win!! And my god, that was good enough for me, this game will torture you in such an amusing way, you will be so happy when you beat it!!
The trinkets are so hard to get at, I simply gave up, but holy crap is it satisfying when you reach one.
Get this game, and enjoy it!

10/10 for the rage factor.

9.5/10 for the game itself.

YOU'RE A BLUE GUY FLIPPING UP AND DOWN TO SAVE HIS FRIENDS BECAUSE OF A FAULTY TELEPORTER WHICH STILL SEEMS TO WORK LATER.

THEN YOU BEAT NO DEATH MODE AND PROVE THAT YOU HAVE NO LIFE.
