VVVVVV is a 2D platformer where the ability to jump is replaced with the ability to flip gravity. This simple change allows for an interesting change on navigating the large map.
That being said, everything else about this game is terrible.
The controls are simple, left and right arrow keys move you left and right respectively, and the up arrow key to flip graviy. Too bad though you can't nudge yourself into the position you need by simply tapping the corresponding keys. If you want to move in the game, you have to commit. It might have just been my imagination, but there were numerous times where I felt like I was sliding after I let go of movement keys, which should never happen in a platformer. Also, you have to have to wait for the game to recognize your on the ground for you to flip gravity. The wait is usually just a fraction of a second, which doesn't sound too bad, until you get later into the game. In which case it becomes a nightmare.
Enough ragging on the controls. They can be forgiven if the game is fun right? Well, the game was kind of 'meeh' for me. The game started out alright, some introductary rooms to show you how the gravity functions work, let you get used to moving around, etc. Then you have the ability to die via spikes. I think I wouldn't be so sore about the spikes if the creators wouldn't have decided that these where the only things to kill you, and if they didn't use them overzealously. Also god forbid that I mention that you'll need premonition so that way the game won't screw you over with the screen transitions, which happen everytime you move towards the edge.
Argue difficulty all you like, because that was not the best. If I learned one thing from people yelling game design at me, is that a good game has a good difficulty curve. This game just decides to jack up the difficulty from the start, and stay there. That didn't seem to help me enjoy the game. It made it more monontonous.
Take this review with a grain of salt. You may like these kinds of games, but I can't tell you to not buy it. All I can say is that I've played through the entire game, And I wouldn't recomend it.
