VVVVVV is a retro styled 2D platformer by Terry Cavanagh, creator of dozens of free games. You play as the fearless leader of a team of dimension exploring scientists who inadvertently crash, and are separated. The game involves exploring the strange world you've found yourself in, and reuniting your friends. VVVVVV explores one simple game mechanic: you cannot jump - instead, you reverse your own gravity at the press of a button. The game focuses on playing with this mechanic in a variety of interesting ways. 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.

vvvvvv is the kind of platformer you cant put down.

It gets tough but you can't quit till the save point. But when you get to the save point its easy so you think "ok im gonna play a little more, just to explore a bit". Then it gets hard again. So you think "Well I can't quit now. Not till I get to the next save game" Next day your still fixated on the screen. Adictive is not a strong enough word. Easy to pick up, hard to put down and full of great 2d platforming innovation. Highly recommended.

This game is absolute time consumer. It's crazy, it's awesome, and it reminds about old good 8bit days.


Epicness in an executable


Ne soyez pas effrayé par l'aspect oldies, ce jeu super rapide est excellent. Si une épreuve est difficile, ce n'est pas grave, on respawn et on bouge tellement vite qu'on a le temps de la retenter 50X par minute..

On arrive donc bien à un moment à se sortir des pires situations !

Le seul problème est qu'on se perd un peu dans ce monde, mais ca n'entachera pas la côte.

This game is so fun that even after collecting all of the shiny things, I'm playing through it again.

Awesome music!!

Really awesome game.
The music and everything fits perfectly.

This is a truly amazing game. A wonderfully thorough exploration of a simple game mechanic, with great music throughout. I reccomend it to everyone.

Old school platforming at its mind and spirit crushing best. Lots of deaths in this game, but thankfully lots of checkpoints as well. Great for the retro gaming nut.

VVVVVV (Yeah that's 6 V's) is probably the coolest and most nostalgic game out there. It is fun, grabbing the good and old fast-pacing and spikes everywhere and combining with the retro video game music we all love, and yeah, it is THAT hard.
