You play as the pixelated Captain Viridian of a vast space station, but unfortunately, your crew is missing. Of course, being a captain of your word, you embark on a dangerous quest to rescue your lost companions. So far, so good. What makes VVVVVV a pretty hard game is its curious gameplay – Captain Viridian can't jump, he can only move left or right. Still, he has a unique ability, which allows him to reverse gravity. Thus, he is able to dodge an ample amount of hazardous traps. Most of these consist of sharp spikes, which are the bane of Captain Viridian.
On top of it all, later levels come with moving platforms and enemies, which further increase the difficulty of the already hard game. Yes, you will die numerous times before you complete each level. Fortunately, a number of life-saving checkpoints are scattered across each level.
VVVVVV will frustrate gamers that use either Android or iOS devices. The frustrating gravity-bending platformer will set you back a few bucks, but it is definitely worth it. What's more, if old-school platformers float your boat, then VVVVVV is a must-play game for you.
