“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

Про цю гру

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.

VVVVVV is a game that people say is hard. I think it's somewhat challenging, but there is very hard stuff (like no death mode) in the game. The challenges are fun (mostly), and encourage you to keep going through with checkpoints aplenty.
VVVVVV is about exploring the mechanic of flipping gravity instead of jumping, as stated in it's description. A whole game being about one thing might seem like it'll get stale after a bit, but it really doesn't. It gets you thinking that you've mastered that single mechanic, until you get to the next room that kills you repeatedly.
It's also fun enough to play through repeatedly, and you'll just keep coming back until you get that less than 100 deaths trophy. But, y'know, you'll probably want that less than 50 deaths trophy afterwards, and you probably will try to get it. And after a handful of playthroughs, you might actually make it. (But, y'know, you'll probably want the no death trophy afterwards, but, yeah... That's not likely.)

I would give VVVVVV a 9/10, beautiful.

This is one of the best games I've ever played. It features a good storyline (it tells you whats going on without having you waiting a long time for cut-scenes), good soundtrack, great controller support, challenging levels where you have to stay on your feet, and a very large map. This has to be one of the only games to not make me angry at it. It also has a very nice retro feel to the game, which a soundtrack that fits the game well. I may only have 3 hours on the game, but that's all I needed to realize how great this game is. If you enjoy platformers, this is a must buy.

P.S. Prepare to die alot :/

TL;DR: Amazing soundtrack, story, levels, map design, and all of that jazz. Absolute must buy!

VVVVVV is a game with the gravity inverting concept. Said concept is backed by its music and its extra content. Would recommend.

An unforgiving, fiendishly difficult retro platformer that will cause epilepsy. However, it does what it set out to do very well, and made me want to finish it (if just to spite the developers). Cheerful but frustrating, a great platformer.

VVVVVV is best thought of a puzzle game. Wait, no, it's best thought of as a platformer. Wait, its a arcade-style beat em up! (last one may not be accurate)

VVVVVV is an incredibly hard game, no doubts about it. It is also not all that rewarding since each and every collectible doesn't really add much by itself except the completion of the trial itself. Despite it all, its incredibly addicting and the basic visual style makes it lightweight enough for long play-sessions. I've spent way too much time on one particular segment, trying to time my Vs just right as to fall into the next checkpoint. And boy, checkpoints are sweet.

VVVVVV is a wonderful game. Loads of fun, challenging but not frustratingly so, and exploration is always rewarded. The one strong negative I feel requires surfacing, however, is that it's painfully short. One can complete the game in an hour or so. For some it's worth it, and for others perhaps not.

In my opinion, VVVVVV is worth the price in spite of length.

VVVVVV is a very entertaining game if you remain calm but if you don't you will want to drink bleach, tackle a train, act like a wood chipper is a trampoline, try to reverse gravity over a cliff, or all of the above. (JK)

But a fun game though

A true masterpiece complete with beautifully stylized retro visuals (truly retro unlike most pixellated games nowadays that just try to cover-up a lack of artistic skills), a fantastic chipmusic soundtrack, an extremely simple yet utterly clever basic premise that is put to its best possible use in varied stages, and hidden trinkets strewn throughout the game world.

If I had to criticize anything, it would be that section where you constantly bounce up and down dodging projectiles and the ridiculously hard achievements - have fun beating VVVVVV without dieing.

Those are only minor nuisances of course, which can even be fully ignored in the case of the achievements, so bottom line is: Get the game ASAP.

By the way, I've played it for a couple of hours already, but only offline, which is why my counter clocks in at only a few minutes.

SUPER retro game, as in before the NES, with graphics from the 386 PC era. Cool look, and fun.

It's also really hard. I'm not even very far into the game and I've died 294 times according to the stats.

This game melted my brain in the most wonderful way XD
It's just so full to the brim of styles of gameplay I'd never even *thought* of!! Level after level!

And combine that with the wonderfully soft caring characters and focus on open-(small)-world exploring, fixing things, and overcoming challenges (some, VERY INTENSE) and the total absence of you having to fight or attack things, which just fits with me personally so well (and is so rare in games!!)...

It's just amazing and so inspiring!!! :'D

(Also, the music is *AmAzing*, I might buy the soundtrack if it has one and isn't too much!)

Beat the main game in about 2 hours, but wow, what an amazing platformer. Some of those rooms can be mind-boggling, and even if you die many, many times, you'll find yourself to be enjoying the game just as much as I do, with or without a sale,

Soundtrack is so amazing in this game as well.

VVVVVV is one of the best platformers available on Steam. It has a simple yet brilliant concept to base an entire platformer around. I love the difficulty of this game, it's very balanced. Not too frustratingly hard, but it's certainly not easy. All of the levels in this game are interesting. I can't say it simpler than that. I love every bit of the gameplay this game has to offer.

To hear the full review, listen to the episode on Game Hoard Podcast

VVVVVV is a great little platformer built around a single unique mechanic: instead of jumping, you have the ability to switch gravity up and down. This mechanic leads to some of the most inventive and challenging platforming gameplay I've ever encountered. Every single room becomes a platforming puzzle as you try to figure out how to use gravity to move through hostile environments without dying, which you will do often. Luckily, the game wastes no time respawning you at the nearest checkpoint, which are liberally sprinkled throughout the environment. VVVVVV also thankfully leaves lives and game overs out of the equation. The result is a game with a high challenge but that never feels punishing or impossible and moves forward at lightning speed.

Also welcome is the open world game design that makes VVVVVV feel Metroidvania-esque. Different areas of the map have different sorts of obstacles and challenges, allowing you to explore and progress at your own pace.

Another interesting aspect is the game's story, which does not feature a villain or enemies of any kind. The story feels like a small side quest happening in a larger world, which is a refreshing change from a typical platformer where you need to save the world/princess.

It also has one of the best chiptune tracks that you will ever hear and features simple but effective graphics inspired by C64 games.

Overall, VVVVVV is an immensely satisfying experience for anyone up to the challenge and I highly recommend it.

Time for a controversial review. I’ve played this game on and off for the past 5 years, and I’ve gradually come to realize it's not that great. I’ll try to explain why.

To get one thing out of the way, the music is fantastic. The chiptune album “PPPPPP” is a true modern classic, catchy and energetic and well-produced. The game sells for $5, but I’d be willing to pay $20 for the soundtrack alone. It’s that good. Even after hearing these tunes for 5 years, most of them still haven’t gotten old to me. But chances are you’ve already heard the music and know this for yourself.

To get another thing out of the way, I think the visuals are awesome. The minimalistic art throws back to a time older than the NES, and the ever-changing neon colors are strange and mysterious in their simplicity, and demand to be explored. In a way, the game itself is a fitting music video to one of the greatest chiptune albums there is.

So, what do I dislike about this game? Well, where do I start…?

The game is built around a novel idea – flipping the gravity of your character instead of jumping – and then spends an hour or two trying to pretend this mechanic has no crippling limitations before just giving up. And I’m not exaggerating here: the entire game can be consistently beaten in about 30 minutes. The first time I played it, it took me about 50. Finding all the hidden trinkets can take about an hour more, depending on how many tries it takes you on the “Prize for the Reckless” and “Veni, Vidi, Vici” challenges.

Most games which are built around a central gimmick will try to expand it with additional game mechanics. VVVVVV comes up with about four new mechanics to complement its gravity-flipping gimmick: conveyer belts, automatic-flip lasers, auto-scrolling rooms, and rooms that wrap around the edges. It then uses each of these mechanics in a tiny dungeon area and almost nowhere else. Two of the game’s areas use a somewhat irritating mechanic where you have to lead a friend around, with the level design poking fun at the fact that your friend has no common sense and you have to do everything for them. As far as new ideas are concerned, that’s pretty much it.

The central hub area, which comprises the majority of the map, is mostly just empty space: no enemies, no platforming puzzles, nothing but a few spikes here and there and a few of the collectable trinkets hidden away in corners. Even the interesting mazes are scarce. The hopelessly catchy track “Passion for Exploring” plays in the central hub, but in this case, “exploration” means just repeatedly falling through dozens of empty screens and searching for the next dungeon entrance. The overworld is also littered with dozens of checkpoints and teleporters which you will never use because there’s just nothing out there. They could have removed it entirely, replacing the hub with a series of teleporters to the dungeons, and the game hardly would have lost anything.

The game is touted as a “super hard” and “tough as nails” platformer. If that’s the case, it’s the easiest “super hard” platformer I’ve ever played. Some parts are hard, but there’s no steady sense of progression; the difficulty is mostly just limited to a few problem rooms which may take hundreds of deaths each, but otherwise the whole game is smooth sailing. If you want real difficulty, you can try no-death mode or the time trials, but it just amounts to repeatedly playing the same ridiculously short game until you get it perfect. In this case, the difficulty is mostly just self-imposed rather than the work of a level designer. Personally, I’ve spent the most amount of time on the Super Gravitron, a fearsomely difficult mini-game that was probably the spiritual precursor to Super Hexagon.

The game’s story might as well not be there. I can summarize the story as follows: “You are some kind of captain of some kind of crew piloting some kind of ship, which crash-lands on some kind of planet due to some kind of disturbance. In order to escape, you need to deactivate some kind of device located in some kind of alternate dimension.” I’m not exaggerating. Nothing is explained. This story could have been mysterious and compelling, but instead it chooses to go the “self-referential humor” route by having the characters poke fun at checkpoints and the level design, while they’re not busy talking about nothing.

And for those who say “Why would you play this game for the story?” I propose that you consider this: the game’s story could have been better if you removed all of the dialogue. The story is told perfectly through the visuals. The explosions, lost crew members, and alternate dimensions are all self-explanatory, and it would have left all the details up to the imagination. Captain Viridian would have made a great silent protagonist that you could have projected your own motivation into. Instead, the characters are all given completely needless speaking lines which don’t convey anything, and I’m just left wondering why anyone bothered to write dialogue.

TL,DR: Aside from the superb music and the visuals, VVVVVV feels like a game that was hastily thrown together. The difficulty is schizophrenic, rather than a fine-tuned progression curve. The overworld map is mostly empty space, as though the level designer had tried filling it with enemies and mazes but finally said “screw it, nothing works” and deleted everything. The story had no effort behind it. Interesting game mechanics are few and far between, and are only used for a few rooms each. The bonus game modes are needless masochism that are far too great of a difficulty jump from the main game. Overall, it feels more like an hour-long proof of concept than a full-fledged game exploring the possibilities and implications of its main gravity-flipping gimmick.

Yes, it was influential. Yes, it rode the very first wave of indie games back when Steam was gaining steam. Yes, the music is crazy good. All things considered, I respect this game. But after five years of playing and reflecting on it, I can’t help but see it as a short, pointless waste of time with no interesting gameplay statements to make (even for its time) and no heart put into it. It’s style-over-substance. But hey, it’s got a great style, so I can’t quite fault it for that. I know a lot of people love this game. I loved it for a while, but now that I've noticed its flaws I can't shake the sour taste this game leaves me with.

I know that few will agree with my sentiment, but hopefully I’ve explained my thoughts adequately.

And finally, all achievement hunters but the most dedicated should stay far, far away. This is one brutal 100%.

Greatly enjoyed my fun and fast playthrough of VVVVVV. It's a difficult platformer, but nowhere near impossible, with a catchy soundtrack to accompany my repeated shortcomings. The generous checkpoints and "save anywhere" system make a playthrough doable for even the most casual player. If it's your thing, there is also plenty of replayability through trinkets (collectibles), time trials, user created levels, and an alternate mode.
