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 a retro styled 2S platformer. I'll tell you now it is hell of a hard game and a very good one at that. Lots of extra gimmicks in the levels and can take the extra challenge to find trinkits. Lots of fun to have and a must play.

Simple premise and controls, challenging gameplay without being too frustrating, and an all-around amazing experience gives me no option but to award a 10/10.

Retro-graphics vis a vis Commodore 64, an epic soundtrack, and extremely well-designed levels. Absolutely superb. I have played this game through at least 10 times. I have the soundtrack, because those tunes kept getting stuck in my head. Ridiculously fun, but at the same time, particularly rage inducing.

The game is generally well done, but it definitely has a learning curve issue that can often incite frustration from players, namely me. I didn't even complete the first level before I rage quit. I can't possibly give it a low score, because the difficulty will be the attraction for many players; but from my stance, I would have probably played the game a lot longer if it had only gotten that difficult after a few levels, not in the first 30 seconds.
