VVVVVV

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: VVVVVV is one of those games that doesn't feel like it should exist. It's name alone is hard enough for most people to compute. Then just look at the thing. It's nostalgic for a period of gaming that even I'm almost too old to remember, a pre- Mario era when player characters had just just two frames of animation and spent their time dodging attacks from living stop signs and the word "NO!" That's not exactly what's hot on the streets right now, is it kids?

VVVVVV

  • Excerpt: Terry Cavanagh is one of my favorite indie developers and is the mastermind behind the platformer VVVVVV. This isn't a traditional platformer though, since the only way to change your elevation is to reverse gravity. This creates some very tricky scenarios that would be taken for granted in any traditional platformer. The platforming gets very difficult during the course of the game and would normally require quick reflexes to get through many of the rooms.

VVVVVV: Testing Your Personal Limits of Sanity

truepcgaming.com
14 January 2011
  • Excerpt: 752 deaths in 2 hours.  Think about that for a second. Recall all of the soul-crushing, mind bogglingly hard games you have played over the years and ask yourself how many keyboards you have smashed after dying on the same level, or quest, 15 times in a row.  An average person might shelve the game only to stare at it angrily until they decide to either forgive it, or maybe never pick it up again.

  • Excerpt: Vidi, Veni, Vici!, Easy Mode Unlocked, Your Bitter Tears… Delicious, Getting Here is Half the Fun, Your Bitter Tears… Delicious, Easy Mode Un- shit! And so our friend Captain Viridian’s smile is turned upside down for the three-hundred and seventy fourth time in the last half hour, planted, as it is, on the same row of spikes that got him two attempts ago.

  • Excerpt: If there’s been one person who’s been honestly opposed to ridiculous difficulty in games, it’s me.  Maybe it’s just something personal, but I really don’t like the concept of paying for a game only to consecutively be unable to make any progress.  It just seems like a major waste of money. I say that because [...

  • Conclusion: VVVVVV offers clever platforming, a superb soundtrack, and challenging gameplay. But it's extremely short, and the $15 price tag is asking a bit too much.
