Hey there, I'm Sam!
You might know me from making Skyline and Outside Influence, as well as a few other Portal and Counter-Strike related projects. This is my first "from-scratch" game, written in C++ using a codebase provided by my lecturer Dr Dave Wyatt and the SFML by Laurent Gomila.
This is an ASCII demake of VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh, It's a bit finicky, but you're completely able to make your own levels and level packs (tutorials are included, but they're a bit rough too!). It also supports XInput controllers (I tested with a Dualshock 4, but it should work with anything XInput.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this at least a little! (or at the very least, don't find this too horrible). I learned a whole lot during the production of this game, and I plan on making a better version from scratch somewhere down the line, including paralax scrolling and increased colour capability.
Thanks very much for giving it a chance, and you can download the latest release in the download section :D
