“Gravity Badgers impresses right from the get-go thanks to its pretty fun tutorial that explains the core elements of this physics simulator and introduces you to a few of the main characters....Gravity Badgers is a pretty fun physics-based puzzle game with lots of levels and a few clever ideas.”
7/10 – Softpedia

“Gravity Badgers does offer fun, enjoyable, fast-paced, puzzles for you to solve. After some extremely hard puzzles I found myself rejoicing that I beat them. If you like a challenge and want to have some fun with badgers in space, then I suggest Gravity Badgers”
7/10 – TwoDashStash

“I’d gladly recommend the game to fans of physics based games as this one is well done for a game that only costs $4.99”

Gravity Badgers is a short and simple game. The one mechanic revolves around launching your character at the perfect angle in each level to collect all 3 pickups and reach the exit. There are some decent songs and the artwork is appealing, but boiled-down there isn’t really too much going on for this game. Nevertheless, the appeal of it, to me, was this inherent simplicity. Sometimes I enjoy a very simple game with a singular mechanic, especially in an instance where I may need to stop playing at any moment. This game fills that niche quite well. If that sounds like an itch you may want to scratch, this game can do the trick… but if you are looking for a game with any depth at all, you won’t be finding it here.

The game uses basically the same mechanics as Angry Birds: Space. There are simple 2-dimensional physics at work at the core of the game: momentum, and push-pull dynamics. Peppered onto that core are some extra dynamics, like: teleporters to go through, enemies to dodge, and shields to disable. Using all of that, you maneuver through each level by discovering the perfect angle and speed with which to launch your character.

Reaching the end of each level is a fairly easy task for practically every level; getting all 3 pickups and reaching the end in one shot is marginally more challenging. You will need to accomplish the ladder to earn all achievements and truly beat the game. Even then, most levels are fairly easy. Only a small amount of them should require more than a dozen attempts.

There are also a handful of “boss fights” in the game. They are, for the most part, anticlimactic. Although the trial of beating the 4th boss without getting hit once is probably the one challenge in the game that may get your adrenaline pumping.

And so, with Gravity Badgers, what you have is a simple game that can provide fleeting, surface-level entertainment. The lack of depth intrinsic to the game is both the game’s greatest asset and the game’s worst flaw. I can see why many people would not enjoy this game, but I personally did. It fills a specific niche and it does so adequately… so if it sounds like something you would enjoy, then give it a shot.

rage inducing game, play for your own risk, you might get brainbleeding. Also, terribly tested, in windowed mode some levels impossible to finish, moves not predictable and some levels just impossible to do for 3 stars, like 4th boss, the 3rd heart phase just impossible without deaths. Games should be entertaining, most of them fulfill that, this not, you will rage too much. Not worth the health risk.

Very similar to angry birds. Think badger family in space. It's all about the gravity and your propulsion jets. Good, but not really original. Get it cheep.

2 hours, 1 card drops.. want more.. Oh yeah review

Well the artwork and music is nice however the gameplay reminds me of a flash game I would play sometimes back in middle school, the game itself takes no real skill to play which caused it to get boring fast.

I would say at least get rid of the thing that shows where the badger will be flying too.

Gravity Badgers is a poor man's Angry Birds. A poor man who plays terrible games.
