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

MARKIPLIER has done an awesome LP of this. Check it out here:

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

It has a very alternate control scheme and is inspired very vaguely by this screenshot:

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

Aha. I thought this game might be inspired by physics hell. But how the hell did you get from that difficult looking puzzle game to this difficult skill game? Speaking of skills, I think this game requires a great amount of concentration and timing. Your interesting control system is pretty cool; easy to learn, impossible to master. The first time I played I got all the way to the green rotation level, stopped for the night, and then came back the next day to find that this game doesn't save progress. You should have put that in the description. But then the next day I slayed this games face. The “Malevolent” levels were actually not that different from the regular levels. It just took some mental rejiggering. The rotation levels were pretty tough and the earthquake levels were down evil. Bring on S.X.C.V.B. Anyway, X.C.V.B. stands for.....Uhhhhh......Ah jeez why X, WHY?!!! Why couldn't it be C.V.B.N. Ok, it stands for Xenophobia Creates Vulgar Beliefs. Or it means X-ray's Cause Vibrating Bones. Perhaps, Xylophone Cancer Vexes Biologists. I don’t know if you want this to be serious or funny but there just aren’t that many X words in the dictionary. And I’m not gonna remove any E’s either, cause that’s what unimaginative babies do. Heh heh heh heh, half my review is about naming your stupid game. Maybe it stands for Xenon Controlled Vector Booster, I like that one. The ones TharosTheDragon came up with were good too.

Thanks for the review and feedback. There's actually a version of this game up on Desura now which has even higher updated graphics and also saves progress.

Thanks for being interested in SXCVB. I thought noone cared :( XD


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Jesus Christ, this game hurts my eyes. The odd thing is, the easiest part of the game was during those two levels in the middle of an earthquake. You'd think that'd be harder to get through.

Needless to say, I beat the game. Took me...twenty to thirty minutes?

I replayed the game when I updated the game. I hate myself because of the green level/s.

Why are people complaining about controls. XCVB name and controls of game. I mean tunnels are annoying but easy if you learn the controls. I mean if you complain about these go play QWOP and complain about the controls.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Interesting game, how do I begin? The controls are bad, but not in a laggy or unresponsive manner, but in more of a counter-intuitive to what you'd expect manner, which makes it a bit of a strange learning experience. As mentioned by other reviewers the collision was rather annoying, especially since changing directions makes the corner move to keep within the hitbox and avoid changing it, but this can make narrow tunnels annoying to enter at times, and I'm glad you added the easy shortcut to the blue stage, as that would've been an impossible nightmare because of this. Level design is bland and tends to fall upon the controls and visual obstacles to make up for it, and the difficulty curve is ass-backwards, as I only died about ten times on the seizure and 90º turned levels combined, compared to the earlier levels where the difficulty came from actual level design giving me a much better challenge. The music is good and seems to mesh well with the odd visuals without becoming grating as you die repeatedly. Overall it's alright, it takes a very basic game concept and by making it even simpler somehow turns it into something neat, and considering it's made for a Game Jam it could've turned out much less fun than it did.
