HUGE XCVB UPDATE:
Improved Camera
Removed Animated Backgrounds
Zoomed Back A Bit

WARNING: This Game no longer has flashing images, but shakey camera is annoying. so those with photosensitive epilepsy beware.

I have playtested the game with WASD as the controls, and confirmed that all you people complaining about the nonstandard control schemes are morons who don't understand what it would do to the game. It would ruin it.

This is the kind%uFEFF of game that turns people into Batman villains.-MountedDragoon

XCVB: QWOP on drugs and Malaria

MARKIPLIER has done an awesome LP of this. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuX7IDfHguY

This is a game made in 4 days as part of Newgrounds Game Jam 9.

SOME OF MY FAVOURITE NG REVIEWS:

"Rainbows are coming out of all my orifices."-malthusian
Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

"It's fun because it's challenging. I kind of feel like my critical thinking has improved for playing this game."-Kadako
Rated 5 / 5 stars

"After every level I thought, that it was hardest one. Every time I've been wrong.
Really well done."- szx
Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

"You my friend are the Devil.
I could feel my Brain scrambling around like a Rubiks Cube :D
Simple, so simple, that it gets hard."- Nachter
Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

"Oh fuck yeah! I beat it! That was intense and truly satisfying!!"-mkurt
Rated 4 / 5 stars

"a perfect masterpiece, the controls were simple enough to be played but hard enough to our brain takes a while to get used to it, sadly, when I finally understood, the screen begun spinning more and more ;-; you evil genius, I LOVE IT"-THE-VOID
Rated 5 / 5 stars

It has a very alternate control scheme and is inspired very vaguely by this screenshot: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/havegum/physics-hell?context=ratings:etm.search:screenshotjam.offset:12

And I mean very vaguely.

This is a challenging skill based game where quick reflexes and quick thinking let you beat the game.

You start off in a Black and White World, not knowing where you are or what to do. And then BOOOM COLORS!!!!! RAINBOWS!!

X.C.V.B stands for something but I'm not sure what yet. You tell me XD.

X to left and right. C to up and down. V to go in the direction of UP or DOWN. B to go in the direction of Left or Right.

Get to the end of the levels.

The game gets faster as you go along.

Eventually you will come across the Malevolent Levels where what you are shown and what you will are the opposite. You must use considerable thinking to beat this game.

I would love you forever if you beat this game.

It's quite hard.

For those who like to look for messages and such in things. There's a subtle political commentary on the attitude of gay rights going on. As can be seen by the introduction of the rainbow levels.
That's only if you want to look further into something than you should

It was fun at first to learn the mechanics, but I feel like there's a missed opportunity in the game. The first few levels build up the difficulty and make sure the player can instinctively maneuver in the right way, without taking too long to figure out the buttons.

Then comes the precision levels (the ones with 1 tile of space to go through), which do not build upon the main mechanic, but rather rely on the right timing; often introducing a factor of luck.

And finally there is the view distortion, at first the rotation and then actual distortion. Not making the game more interesting from a mechanics standpoint but simply more annoying for the player.

At last you take what the player has learned and switch it around, it took me about 30 seconds to switch from the modes; again not really making the game inherently harder.

This game could have been way harder. It feels as if you had something good, but then didn't knew what to do with it so you just threw some random stuff in it to make it feel harder.

All in all it has been an interesting experience, but it could've been so much more.

Created in 4 days. I think I got what I wanted out of it. Super X.C.V.B will be much more refined. I agree about the difficulty curve and odd level layout. But since I found the game quite easy in the opening levels it becomes difficult to make more of those levels without being like: The player will be bored of this.

I went at this game with the idea that someone playing a free flash game is bored easily and prone to move on. therefore something new has to be introduced quite rapidly. If you get me. The player mindset is different and as such I have to try and accomodate. And when the mechanics are learned, expanding on them is actually fairly hard. I have ways to do it though. but I wouldn't have had the time for this particular game.

Awesome!! Its hard but very addictive and rewarding when you finish each level.
It takes some time to get used to the controls but when you get it every level is a challenge to beat.
The music is cool too and the changes in the gameplay(colors, rotation,etc.) although simple come in the right moment to make you change your strategy and don't lose the excitement.

Good game to have a nice or not moment.
