Since the new version of VVVVVV launched, there have been a lot of amazing levels made for it – too many for me to cover, really. When I pick levels to feature, I try to stick to the best of the best – the ones that do something really special. Unfortunately, this means that a lot of great levels get overlooked…
So, I’ve decided to do a few roundup posts to highlight a few other levels I really liked, which you’ve probably missed unless you’ve been reading my forum!
These levels are a little rough around the edges compared to other levels that I’ve featured – some are glitchy, some are really hard, some are unpolished – but I think they’re all levels that fans of VVVVVV will enjoy a lot. There are 15 in all; here are the first five!
“Virtual V” by Vimol
This is a great little level that has a bit of a Manic Miner feel. It makes some pretty fantastic use of roomtext.
“Reactor Disaster” by Kris Asick (Gemini)
Reactor Disaster is a fairly large level with a lot of scripting. It’s quite hard, but very polished, and it has a lot of interesting challenges.
“Mirror rorriM” by PJBottomz
On the other end of the scale, PJBottom’z Mirror rorriM has no challenges at all; no spikes and no enemies. I liked it for its simplicity and singular focus.
“Castle Darkdeath” by Hatless
I found Castle Darkdeath utterly charming; it has some incredibly rough edges, but also some really imaginative challenges.
“The RYB maze” by S. Piqueras
The RYB maze I like because it’s so different from other VVVVVV levels – I found it really got interesting for me when I got as far as the room titled “The Bouncy, much much better edition”. I recommend sticking with it, even if you’re finding it a little confusing at the start!
You can get all five levels from the download below. I’ll post the other 10 over the next week!
To play a these VVVVVV player levels, extract the .vvvvvv files into your VVVVVV levels folder. On windows, that should be in My Documents/VVVVVV, on Mac it’s Documents/VVVVVV, on Linux it’s ~/.vvvvvv
