Review: VVVVVV

Following the proud tradition of NES-inspired, retero themed games VVVVVV is one of the most difficult games made in recent years.  This 2d platformer, set on a space ship, does not make a big deal of plot and that lets you get to the action right away. Unlike most games in this genre this one has seemed to have forgotten the jump button, making the levels even more challenging. Instead you can shift the direction gravity, making it pull you to the top or bottom of the screen. The way this mechanic was set up was not nearly as fun to play with as a similar feature in And Yet It Moves. So I guess if you really like games that rely on freakishly good timing and dumb persistence, well I guess this game is okay for some giggles, otherwise I’d stay away from it.
