Terry Cavanagh will launch two games on the App Store tonight: gravity-flip platformer VVVVVV and score-chasing freebie Super Gravitron. Both should surface on Android tomorrow.

VVVVVV is the brilliant Metroidvania adventure that got a Gold Award on 3DS. Your job in this pixel-art game is to explore a space station and track down your missing astronaut crew.

Your only controls are moving left and right, and flipping gravity so that you bounce between the floor and ceiling. And that's all you need to overcome hundreds of tricky platforming sections.

There are three control schemes in the mobile edition (and you can see me try them out in the video above), but sadly no iOS controller support.

Super Gravitron And you thought Super Hexagon was hard

Cavanagh will also release Super Gravitron, a standalone version of a bonkers mini-game in VVVVVV. Here, you automatically flip from top to bottom while you try to weave in and out of obstacles.

"It's serving as sort of a demo for VVVVVV, but mostly I just think it works really well as its own thing on mobile," Cavanagh says.

Both games will hit the App Store at around midnight in your territory. VVVVVV is £1.99 / $2.99, and can be bought here. Super Gravitron is free, and is found here. We'll let you know when they appear in Android-land.
