Go on a sniping rampage in Hitman Sniper photo
Go on a sniping rampage in Hitman Sniper
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Square hasn’t been afraid to use the Hitman IP in fun and creative ways. Hitman GO was a critical success for doing something unique, and while Hitman Sniper isn’t on that same scale, it is still at least a ton of fun.

VVVVVV's user-created levels and editor are now free photo
VVVVVV's user-created levels and editor are now free
by Jordan Devore

Designer Terry Cavanagh has release a free version of VVVVVV that features player-created levels and the full level editor. It's called VVVVVVV: Make and Play Edition, and it can be downloaded as of today for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Version 2.2 of the full game is out now, fixing "a bunch of long standing bugs (for example, player level warp lines) and makes the 2.1 changes official (like player maps, colored text in player levels, editor direct mode, etc)." Steam Achievements have been implemented as well, so if you've put in the effort already, expect to unlock a bunch of those at once after updating.

That was far from the only VVVVVV news this week, as Cavanagh also released the game for iOS, Android, and Ouya, in addition to a related minigame called Super Gravitron for mobile. That's free, too! And there's a metal cover album for that special someone in your life.

We found Thomas Was Alone a great experience, and it's done well enough to eclipse one million copies sold thus far.
