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.
Masterjun improves the previous run by 2 minutes and 56.01 seconds, thanks to exploiting a glitch in the infamous Gravitron intermission, allowing one to skip directly to the end through the Gravitron. Please read the author's comments for more details.
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.

Elomavi improves the previous TAS by around 8 seconds after accounting for version differences, thanks to better routing and not having to re-enter the game again in order to perform the credits warp. This run was made using the latest version of the game, but under a mode that allows for glitches that were present in version 2.0 to be used.

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 baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
