Online Linux games store Gameolith is having a winter sale – and today’s title knocks 50% off the price of retro-styled platformer VVVVVV.
But for those who don’t – Gameolith’s winter sale makes the chance of bagging the title an irresistible temptation.
VVVVVV draws influence from 80s computer games in both looks and sounds – so those with heads for the nostalgia of the Commodore 64 and its ilk will appreciate the feel. Those who just like a challenging bit of gameplay will find the pit-laden rooms and gravity-switching mechanics a real test of skill.
VVVVVV can be nabbed for Ł1.75/2/$2.50 (depending on your locale) for today only @ gameolith.com/game/vvvvvv/
As a side note, VVVVVV is due to make its debut on the Nintendo 3DS in the coming months.
