"The very best videogames in existence leave you with a whole mess of memories that are so varied and entertaining that you can leaf through them like a photo album. VVVVVV is one of those games." - Quintin Smith, Rock Paper Shotgun
I would completely recommend this game to anyone, this is one for the memories.
I very rarely find games like these. The ones that pull me in and keep me playing even if I have hit the same set of spikes on the same screen for the hundredth time. The ones that make me want to go out and get all of the collectibles, not only to say that I've done it, but to also see as much of the game as possible. This is a game that I remember screen for screen. I bought this during the %66 off indie sale and if I hadn't caught that deal then I would probably never have this game. It is very difficult, and you will spend 5-10 minutes on some screens. Even up to 30-60 for one or two trinket screens if you want them. But it's all worth it. This game doesn't other many hours the first play though. But with all the extra modes and all of the player made worlds it makes the game much longer. The only thing I can say is that I heavily hope that they come out with the VVVVVV: Make and Play edition for iOS. But beyond that it is worth every penny that it costs, even without the deal. And I hope that if anyone that gets the chance to try it takes that chance and plays through the game completely and fully, then you'll really start to understand how amazing this simple little game really is.
I had watched someone go through the entire game on computer, but never played it myself. I figured this was the perfect chance to jump into it. I was not disappointed. One of the most enjoyable and redeeming games I've ever played on iOS. The controls do, like everyone else says, take some getting used to, but I was able to beat "Doing Things The Hard Way" so clearly their functional. If your going for just beating the normal game and are decent at the game, you will probably get about one to one and a half hours out of the game, but even that is still worth it in my opinion. Going for all the trinkets adds an extra hour or so, and then they have a mini-game, a different mode, and a one-life run through, including a bunch of secrets and a story told in part through terminals. I'd recommend this game to anyone who isn't turned off by difficulty in a game, because there will be parts that will stop your progress for about 10-20 minutes. All in all I had a lot of fun playing it. I even played it twice, and I rarely replay games. Great game. Loved it.
Twitch Platformer for Masochists
Personally, I spent 4h 45m with the game practically in a single sitting. It drew me in and kept my attention extremely well. That said, the game wasn't great for my sanity. Some of the rooms are designed in such a way that after solving them, you'll know you hate yourself for putting yourself through some torture for a shiny that seems to only unlock chip tunes. If V stands for death, the title of this game would be die die die die die die. The game claims I died 2600 times in 4.75 hours. The title of the game is a representation of the games worst enemy, the spikes, and also represents the manner in which you traverse the levels: Down up down up down up. I'd recommend the game if you like platformers and puzzles and you hate yourself. I couldn't put it down, but a significant portion of the game was frustration with only a short lived payoff of satisfaction.
