- 100% completion
- Genre: Platform
In VVVVVV, the player controls Captain Viridian, who is lost in an alternate dimension, in search of the missing members of the spaceship's crew. Instead of jumping, the player is able to control the direction of gravity, allowing Captain Viridian to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment. The graphical style of the game is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64.

In the spirit of the retro games' secret hunt, 20 aptly named Shiny Trinkets are hidden throughout the game. The author makes sure to collect all of them in his movie.

Additionally, this TAS is completed on the game's no-death mode, which removes all the cutscenes and dialogues, as well as allows collecting a specific Trinket without having to die. Dying once on this mode prompts an instant game over, making it an especially brutal challenge in unassisted conditions. As this naturally prohibits the skips and glitches that abuse forcible deaths, it allows the audience to see the game in its entirety and, indeed, enjoy its level design and excellent chiptune-style soundtrack.

If you would like to see the game completed with no holds barred, make sure to check out the glitched any% and the game end glitch TASes that complete the game a lot quicker than one would have imagined!

The graphical style of the game is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64.

This movie by Masterjun utilizes a glitch that increments the current game state to trick the game into warping to the end cutscene. The glitch is triggered by pressing the Escape key to bring up the quit prompt while a dialog box is onscreen. Masterjun also improves the previous run by 0.30 seconds by using general optimizations in movement and key-presses.

See the submission comments for more details. There is also a run in which the game is played more as intended.

The graphical style of the game is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64.

In this run, Scepheo blazes to the ending in less than 9 minutes (7:55 according to the in-game timer), skips the fearsome Gravitron, and rescues the crew in a fraction of the length of the ship's regulated lunch break. Scepheo also improves Masterjun's previous run by over 4 and a half minutes through a new route and a new glitch that allows the captain to be flung out of a teleporter into a wall. For more information, see the author's comments.

This run avoids using glitches that require pressing the Escape key. There is also a run that uses these glitches to beat the game even faster.
