The 1024th Time's the Charm

Hey guys, just want to let you know about a cool game my Batwing Brother turned me on to. It's called VVVVVV, and it's on Steam right now for both Mac and PC. It's only like 5$, you should grab it.

It's a cool platform style game that can only be controlled by the keyboard. Basically its a gravity game, you flip upside down at will avoiding spikes and other things. The catch is that it is VERY difficult. Thankfully dying doesn't screw you much, and thats good because as you can see from the screenshot I died over a thousand fucking times.

And this is in about 2 1/2 hours of playtime, which is all you need to beat this game.

The visuals are great, it's all throwback 8-bit NES looking stuff and that suits the playstyle pretty well, this one is all about nice tight gameplay. Sometimes the control can be a bit sucky because of the keyboard and the fact that you have to be so precise, but that's my only gripe. They also have some swanky electronic music.

Check it out, it is Kielbasa endorsed and will certainly get a vote from me for the Golden Sausage Awards early next year.

Comment with your screenshots, I want to see if any of you are better than me at this. This was my first run through, I could probably cut the deaths in half if I was insane enough to play through this again.

PS. Here's a video of an idiot playing the game so you can see it. Mute the sound, the guy is an asshat.
