Has great potential! I'm not the type to one-star an otherwise great game because of one flaw, but it is true that the controls become difficult to work with as timing becomes more important! I eventually reached a spot I couldn't pass because the controls wouldn't respond, but I had a lot of fun getting there! I'm eager to pick this up again once the controls are improved! When I saw this app, I thought 'where do I know the name Terry Cavanagh from..?' Then I scrolled down and saw VVVVVV. Of course! That's a fave on my 3DS 💗
Great game, bad touch controls I wasn't really able to play with the touchscreen controls on my 8in tablet. Shield controller works fine, though.
Good fun, those controls though... I normally love precision platforming games VV... included, but responsive controls are a must. DLB handles acceptable until the difficulty ramps up, at which point you're in deep unless you're rocking a controller. The movement/shooting buttons are mind blowingly tiny - especially considering they're sitting in a wealth of negative, wasted space. Will gladly return to finish the game/increase stars if the controls are improved.
Greek mythology The entire game is a loose retelling of the journey of Orpheus. This is my favorite story from these people. The gameplay is simple, the narrative is claver. If you pay attention enough and know about the story, you can even know the bosses' names.
AMAZING! I LOVE IT! I love this game! For anyone who didn't understand its based on the greek myth of Orpheus. If you don't know what that is look it up. The story is brilliant and i love the mechanics. Granted i wasn't to terriblly thrilled with the controls. They weren't the best and at times the game became hard to play and control but all in all this was a great game. I deeply love this and hope more games like this (hopefully with better controls) come out soon!
Awesome! Just like Terry's other games, there seems to be a lot of hidden messages about emotions and backstory (in VVVVVV it was the strange enemies/objects - here, it's things like the gravestone at the start). The game is fantastic. I know everyone says the controls suck, but the thing is they could EASILY be fixed - by making the directional buttons larger or by using VVVVVV's technique (sliding). All in all - a masterpiece!
Minor bug fixes.
