V is for Vortex Lite 1.1 released

I just got word that V is for Vortex Lite 1.1 was approved. This was a huge update to the free game:

  • Saves your progress in Story Mode
  • Freeplay: Unlock levels to replay them & see how long your best time was
  • 12 new levels (18 Total)
  • Total time to complete each game, tracked in the achievement’s section
  • Tutorial Mode
  • More responsive control
  • Improved player movement
  • Level Reset Button
  • Bug fixes / Collision detection improvements

If you’ve left a review, please go back and update it after this version, many of the original complaints have been addressed.

First V is for Vortex Champion

Got the first submission to the Poor Man’s Leaderboard this evening, from Matt33, he is the current champion completing V is for Vortex in a quick 21:04 minutes. Can you do better?

Vortex Leaderboards

Just wanted to talk a bit about V is for Vortex’s Leaderboards and how they work. I don’t have automatic submission of your achievements or runtimes. I’d like to get this into a future update, but it’s not there yet. As a stop gap, I created the Poor Man’s Leaderboards for Vortex (coming soon to Z is for Zombie in 1.4).

These Leaderboards rely on you to take a screenshot of the achievements page once you have completed all 54 levels, and submit them. The email address is on the Leaderboard page. I’ll display the top ten times for each version (1.1, 1.2, etc), along with your name, and a link to your website.

If you’ve got any questions on the process, please post below, or contact me.
