“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”

Audio & Graphic
The soundtrack is reduced to the bone, and generally 30-60 seconds tracks looped endlessy; the sound effects aren't remarkable but who cares.
The graphic is easy on the eye without trying to be anyhow amazing, the game is generally pleasant to look at.

Gameplay & Longevity
This is a puzzle game that plays around gravity, no more, no less.
Difficulty scaling lacks of consistency: while the different chapters increase in difficulty, the levels of the chapters aren't always ordered by difficulty, and we often find few very hard levels in the beginning of the chapter, a bunch of easy levels throughout the chapter and some hard level by the end of the chapter.
The game isn't extremely long and can be completed in few hours, the plot cutscenes try to be funny and lighten the mood successfully.

Conclusion
The price tag is appropriate: buy it if you want to kill few hours with a relaxing puzzle game, skip it if you have big expectations and want to play an elaborate puzzle game.

If you need ratings:

Sound: 6/10

In the near future when badgers have achieved space flight, an elite crew of rodents are our only hope to collect space gems needed for reasons.

Rooted in mobile game design of flinging a character into a physics puzzles, 'Gravity Badgers' makes the transition to full PC release rather ungracefully. Levels are build of obstacles that may attract or repel your flung badger, but end up being mostly trial and error on the road to success.

Its a verry quick game almost made it to the last boss, All you have to do is pull back and release the badger avoiding everything and collecting 3 orbs to make it to a green portal to win. while 100% every level before moving on. Then I lost all of my progress ( no idea why) Then proceeded to beat all of stage one and half way of stage two and im still only have 2 hours into the game. Some puzzles are incredibly easy to do, some are extremely difficult to get all 3 orbs in one go, but sometimes you get lucky and make it all on your first shot. Plus it's badgers in space what more do you want?

Gravity Badgers is Angry Birds Space without the pigs.

No, really. If you were to replace the license and swap toppling towers of blocks with flying into wormholes the two games would be near indiscernible, except one would be an oddly warped mobile classic and the other a bland, arguably broken clone.

I don't actually take a huge offense that Gravity Badgers has more or less ripped all its components clean out of another game. It's that they've turned it into such a lifeless, frustrating husk of what it once was that makes it so irredeemable. Its rules of gravity are blurry and inconsistent, its camera clumsy, and its scoring system unnecessarily punishing to a degree that makes no sense outside of causing even more tedium as players are forced to open menus and restart levels because of a dumb penalty.

The bottom line is its not fun. It's an almost entirely worthless copy of a better game, with only enough charm to showcase how lifeless the rest of the experience is, and so many aggravating problems that only further cement the fact that this was a hastily developed product pushed out the door before anyone realized how much was wrong (or couldn't be bothered to fix it).

Trying to make your mediocre game more relevant? Why not add badgers?

Gravity Badgers tries to copy & paste the success of Angry Birds Space but fails in every aspect. The levels are just too similar, there is no added value in the different badger characters (they all play the same) and the excitement of the falling blocks physics is completely missing.

What it boils down to is, you try to get the one perfect shot that gets you all three glowing orbs and restart the level many, many times, making micro adjustments until you get it just right. And that is not a lot of fun.

REVIEW
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.

It feels weird doing this for a game which I've actually gone through and completely beaten/gotten 100% of the achievements for, but I can't really recommend Gravity Badgers.

Gravity Badgers is a simple puzzle game where you choose initial direction and velocity of your character, and then their trajectory will change based off of the type of planets you're near (some attracting, some repelling). You're attempting to direct your character to a warp at the end of the level, optionally picking up 3 items along the way.

It's very simple, and I suppose accomplishes that initial goal well enough, but in a lot of ways it just felt lacking. The character graphics are very static - at times feeling like it's a cut out sheet of a character moving around, but without the graphic design to make it seem like that. A large majority of the levels are actually VERY easy, with a few levels that are extremely finicky - there doesn't seem to be much of a middle ground for a pleasing challenge. And finally, there's boss levels, where your character starts shooting lasers at an enemy while they're going at you, and which has pretty much nothing mechanically which relates to the rest of the game. They feel weird, very out of place, and don't really "work."

This is very obviously a budget phone/tablet game, and probably better suited to that medium. If these sorts of games appeal to you, sure, go ahead and pick it up - it's competent enough in its own right, aside from minor other technical issues (a little bit of sloppy edge detection for some of the hazards, primarily), but ultimately the game is pretty rough around its edges. It worked well enough for a mindless distraction while I was also doing another activity (TV, work, etc), but there's not a whole lot there, and I doubt most people would enjoy it.

This game has two difficulties, toddler level and unplayable. In some levels, you just point at the first orb thing and the game plays itself. However, in other levels, it takes you ten hours to find the exactly perfect position. Fun mechanic and graphics ruined by terrible level design.

I got this for 49 cents, and there are trading cards you can sell, making it even cheaper. That being said, I still regret this purchase. It isn't even worth a quarter.
Some say it's like Angry Birds Space. It's not. It's far, far worse. I love Angry Birds, and this game is nothing like it. You can't destroy anything. The whole point of the game is to grab three coin star things, then get to the warp hole/exit. It's not really an enjoyable process either. Many of the levels you can get immediately, because they're so easy. Some others are so annoyingly hard to find the sweet spot. It's basically just tweaking your shot, little bit little, trying to find that one sweet spot where you win the level. It's barely even a game really. More like a meticulous painful process of guess work.

The camera is annoying. It starts zoomed in, and as you pull the mouse back to launch, if you tough the edge of the screen, it zooms out more. Most levels require zooming out, and every time you restart, it zooms back in. This means you have to use the annoying edge zoom EVERY time you try again. It's aggrivating.

It DESPERATELY needs a restart button, like the "R" key or something. You do get three lives, but it's pointless, because you obviously want to get three stars. So you end up clicking pause, then reset, then resetting the annoying camera again... over, and over, and over, and over... until you find that one sweet spot where it works.

On top of all that, it's a physics gravity type game, and the physics don't even really make too much sense. Sometimes a planet will do a lot, sometimes barely anything. The size appears to be important at times, and totally irrelevant other times.

I've played the game about an hour as of now (to get all the badges... not because it's good). I'm about half way through the game. There's a badge where you have to play the game 10 hours... there's no way this is a ten hour game. I'm just going to be leaving it on while I do other things, for the sake of getting that badge.

If I were you, the only way I would get this game is if it were free, so that I could get the trading cards and sell them.

Somewhere in the future
Far away from here
Trouble is waiting
On a burrow on the last frontier

Into these worlds of unknown danger they orbit
They're the Gravity Badgers
Heroes in the vaccum

No Guts No Gravity
No Pain No Gain
One for all, all for one
Badgers on the move

No Guts No Gravity
We're taking a stand
Ready to prove we look more like skunks than badgers in this game.

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.

A casual game with the shooting mechanics of Angry Birds and the gameplay idea of Cut the rope (collect 3 things and reach the exit). Overall it is a very easy game but some levels have a massive jump in difficulty and will take 20-30 tries or more compared to the 1-5 tries that most levels require. There are a lot of levels (140) and has a few boss battles that try to do things somewhat differently.

Most achievements will come from getting 3 energy cores on all levels, and there are a few time grinds (where the highest is for 10 hours and by the time you get that you should have been done with the game for several hours). There is some additional achievement for beating the games different bosses without loosing lives and that wont be an issue until you encounter the second to last boss which is a huge jump in difficulty compared to the previous bosses and will probably take you quite a few attempts to get right.

Time to 100%: 10 hours (due to the time grind)

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.
