“I would highly recommend this game to any fan of Portal, Braid, or Mega Man as well as platformer/puzzle fans.”
9/10 – The Geeks FTW
“The unique blend of gravity puzzles, old school platforming, and devilishly difficult let-me-try-that-just-one-more-time gameplay it offers that make it a worthy investment for five of your gaming dollars.”
4/5 – Evil Avatar

This game doesn't have any live enemies, only automated ones. You travel through various rooms and exit through doors. This game will kill you with lazers. You have a gun that fires *orange* and *blue* balls of energy. The protagonist is a girl. This game is not called *Portal* (WHAT??!)

"Defy Gravity" is a decent puzzle platformer with rather simple graphics but good controls.

To complete the levels, you use your gun to create gravity or anti-gravity fields, pulling/pushing you and/or objects like balls, sawblades and small platforms.

The gameplay is quite refreshing for such a small indie game, difficulty is well balanced with the learning curve and the hard mode you unlock after completing the game gives an extra challenge by completely deactivating the anti-gravity function of your gun for another playthrough.

Even though the game is very short, I highly recommend to get it, especially at a reduced price.

This game is plain ugly, visually inconsistent and I could swear it's using stock images and ripped assets (Twenty bucks the completion sound is same as Warcraft 3's ping sound!). This is like one of those ugly Greenlight games that should never pass, and don't ask me how it ended up on Steam on the first place, being rather simple and unsighty.

Still, there is one excuse for it: Next time it will cost like 30 cents, buy it and you'll get yourself like 45 cents worth of cards! Economics, aren't they awesome?

I regret getting this game. It doesnt matter that i got it on sale. This game just doesn't appeal to me. It's just too hard for me and some levels are so ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ hard that i start raging a lot. At least they could do some kind of help tool if you get stuck and you can't proceed to the next bloody hard level. I had some good hopes for this game but I guess I was wrong. I'm not saying that you shouldn't buy it it just doesnt seem to be in my likings. I don't recommend this game for people who rage a lot because it will ruin their life sorta. Rated 6/10!

This game does not allow reassigning controls which makes it is very difficult to play on an AZERTY keyboard!

This game was absolutely fantastic. It has an original concept, and good application. It was challenging, fun, infuriating at times, and immensely satisifying to complete. The storyline is relatively simple - as are the controls. You will almost always be able to understand how a level should be beat, but the application will still be somewhat challenging, and may require a few attempts. Once you've beaten the game, there is a secondary playthrough which removes one of your abilities, rendering the game a completely different approach - needing more planning and less random leaping about. It assumes you know how the mechanics work at that point, then puts your knowledge to the test. The game was a bit short, but well paced. I would happily buy the game again, and at it's current price, it is more than worthwhile, even just to test it out.

This is an alright game, feels like something I would've played for free on a flash game website when I was a young teen in the school's computer lab. It's worth $3 dollars and it seems to go on sale for pocket change frequently. Buy it, you'll enjoy it for at least an hour.

The most thought provoking story ever put into a video game. Graphics designed by the Greek gods themselves. Soundtrack composed by anyone who has ever touched a musical instrument. And of course the sweet, sweet gameplay. Defy Gravity is precious, and quiet possibly the greatest video game ever developed.

Despite of the bad reviews this game is actually very good.
Creative and addictive you´ll find yourself immersed into the game, though it becomes a bit boring duo to the lack of gameplay variety which leaves you at drift.
But fun nontheless, i do recommendit if you´re looking to have a good time or just looking for a game for the kids to have some fun.
