Today I've got a game that is minimalist on its game mechanics and story, and uses that wonderfully for a challenging and fun game.
That's right, today we review
VVVVVV (Pronounced Six Vee's, as far as my knowledge goes), is a game developed by Terry Cavanagh, with music by Magnus Pàlsson 'Souleye', released for Steam and for the 3DS store.
The plot is relatively straightforward. Your ship crashed into this strange world, your crew teleported out, but the teleporter failed and sent everyone to a different place in the world. You, as Captain Viridian, must find everyone and rescue them.

|Three flips up, two ways down. (Old Screenshot)|
|Some challenges are particularly memorable.|
|Trust me, you'll need all the rage minimizers you can get.|
If that isn't enough for you, the official releases come with player-made levels, one of which was made by the music composer himself, and another made by Notch, of Minecraft fame.
Truly, it is a sight to behold.
And a sweet game to play through.
If you can, get it either on Steam or on 3DS. You will not regret it (Barring the Vini Vidi Vici and Gravitron sections, but you'll find out on your own).
Recommended for fun gameplay and amazing music!
I hope you have a fantastic weekend, and keep on dreaming!
See you next week with another dream!
