released on Jan 11, 2010

There's something terrible wrong in an alternate dimension! Help Captain Viridian flip to find five crew members, 20 hard-to-reach Trinkets and save a dimension on the brink of destruction. It's a space opera in the most unique scale with a style that only VVVVVV can bring to you. Instead of jumping, control the direction of gravity by inverting your gravity and allowing Captain Viridian to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment.

For adventurers who save the dimension, there's still hours and hours of new gameplay with all-new Player Levels. Test your mettle and see if you have what it takes to beat a collection of levels created by other famous game developers.

Inspired by classic 8-bit days gone-by and now with experience-heightening 3D, VVVVVV will challenge even the most battle-hardened old-school gamers.

They don't know what comes after V

A fantastic indie game. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I don't mesh as well with this one as I do with other indie platformers

Puzzle platforming at it's finest 😏👌

A pretty fun game for a playthrough. Bad for ADD people with bad short term memories like me, though lol

Seems solid enough but I have a million other games to play.

VVVVVV explores its core mechanic in single levels to a fuller extent than some AAA games do across their entire duration. A fundamentally perfect videogame. I couldn't think of a single genuine flaw here if I was forced to. This feels weird to say since it wasn't that long ago but I've got a lot of nostalgia for the late 2000s-mid 2010s when it comes to indie games and this game really hits that spot for me. Avoid the super popular ones which mostly suck (Braid, Fez, etc) and there are some real gems there. Super Win the Game, FTL, and Titan Souls are a few that come to mind. I think I first played VVVVVV on my iPod in like 2014 and didn't beat it then or when I got it on Steam a couple years later. Actually, I dont think I've ever completed this game until now, despite playing it plenty of times. Maybe once. It really isn't as hard as I remember, outside of a few incredibly aggravating trinkets, but it is just as fun to play and to listen to. Again, basically a perfect game. It's only 5 dollars on Steam and probably worth twice that much. Check it out if you haven't already!
