  • Summary: 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.

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.

    If you're looking for a challenge, VVVVVV offers one that's simple to understand yet grueling to complete. Its simplistic aesthetics match its simplistic controls, and it also has some nice chiptune music thrown in for good measure.

    So much better than N++ in so many ways. VVVVVVV is cheaper, has a great Vita version, better music, aesthetic, and story. I know I am LTTP onSo much better than N++ in so many ways.

    When his ship becomes affected by "dimensional interference" Captain Viridian must rescue his crew members and help them evacuate.

    VVVVVV is effectively a 2d puzzle/platformer with the central “gimmick” being that, rather than jumping, the player can switch the direction of gravity to allow them to fall upwards or downwards. Fair warning, don’t be fooled by the simple graphical style, this is a tough game (almost infuriatingly so at times!) but the gravity gimmick does offer up some interesting puzzles and platforming challenges to see the player through the 2- 3 hours it’ll take to complete it.

    If you can get it relatively cheap (or even free via PS+ as it was recently) it’s worth giving this a go.
