VVVVVV

VVVVVV Box ArtForward-looking 3DSWare high-profile monitoring how close comes on the heels of Nintendo and change Pushmo WayForward VVVVVV powerful force, a new version of the popular virtual store of PC platforms. VVVVVV first made a name for himself in 2010 with its unpronounceable title, was the Commodore 64, the visual design and gameplay around begging for mercy - canceled gravity. Start of a hero to go backwards through the roof before you see in the games, but the version VVVVVV investment was brutally brilliant.


Fortunately, it is still as funny as ever die, and die and die again, as they help the master in Viridian individual pixels on his quest to save the crew stranded in space to try - the intention to play often and placement of Checkpoint provides abundant that it is always after a failed attempt, the good Captain near the corridors of barbed wire, or narrow streets full of enemies, or both appear again.

The 3D effect was equally disappointing is added with only a very weak sense of the depth of the drawings explores the world of the captain. As with the classic 3-D adventure: Kirby tack and tried on a game like this based on stereoscopic sprites is only marginally interesting.

Worse yet, there is a strange "ghosting" effect post in the foreground elements is here to activate 3D, even a low level of intensity. Only a very small everywhere. Hold the cursor down to highlight it.

Finally, I applied a problem with the pricing here - $ 7.99 is too steep for a port like this, especially after the exclusive Pushmo eShop and powerful force for change both sell cheaper.

When the pieces together, makes me think that was probably VVVVVV as a statement of 800 DSiWare points instead of only thinking ahead to 3DS. It would be even more impressive in this format have, too.

Sun VVVVVV is always a highlight broadside, death, full of good weather. Its price pronounced 3D funky and just made you feel like more of a PC port of simpler and less as something very special for the store.
