“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

Pros:
•Amazing concept.
•Fast paced gameplay.
•Difficult gameplay.

Cons:
•The graphics are disgusting, they need to hire a new artist.
•The game although getting incresingly harder becomes a bit repetitive.

Over all, I would say it is above average.
This game has sales very often so don't buy it at full price.

Cool platformer. A lot of unique gameplay elements. I really enjoyed the cool gravity mechanic, and the game kept introducing new ideas until the end. Also the length is pretty good for 1,99€.

I just bought it for cards admittedly (at $0.29), but I actually found it rather fun to play instead of just idling. The game is short so I have to say only buy it on a major sale, but well worth the time if these kind of games interest you.

Gameplay wise it is a fun platformer, and does remind me a bit of Portal. It isn't an exact copy though, instead of Portals, you manipulate Gravity to repel and attract yourself and other objects. The momentum and physics of the game is fun to toy with, though it CAN be frustrating at times. Checkpoints are placed in fair spots of most stages to reduce frustration, but later stages stretch this out quite a bit so you will have to keep on your toes or be prepared to die again and again.

I did beat the main story but I decided to leave before continuing deep into hard mode. It takes away one of your powers and while I do feel that's an interesting challenge, I'm satisfied with just beating the main modes.

Bought this for $.29, sold the cards for twice that.
10/10, would buy again.

[Edit #1] I tried the -window option and the game worked.
The game is fun to play when you want to kill some minutes, haven't beat it yet due to me being bad at games but i'll keep trying. The soundtrack is killer though.
Would recommend this game for casual losers like me

As a small note, I bought the game hoping to actually play it. The game wont pass a black screen but there is gameplay noise. Cant actually try out the game, still 10/10

Decent game.

The graphics are pretty lackluster but the way the physics force you to move means that this game can throw up a surprising amount of challenge.

This game pleasantly surprised me. At first I was quite sceptical since I didn't like the graphics too much, but the gameplay was great. Definitely worth the price.

This game is okay, worth the money if it goes on sale under $1.00. This game is really easy all the way to the second level of the gauntlet, I rage quitted once I made it to the 3rd level of the gauntlet, if you're into strategy then you'd like this game, it's an extremely short playthrough and it's really easy to get all the achievements if you're good at this sort of thing.

Pros:
1.) Fun gameplay for about 15 minutes
2.) Alright music for a cheap indie game
3.) Controller support (If you like that)
4.) Really inexpensive alternative to the Portal franchise

Cons:
1.) Graphics could have been run through MSDos
2.) Locked resolution
3.) It's that kind of game you will play for fifteen minutes, beat it, and never touch again
4.) Really inexpensive alternative to the Portal franchise

If you're an achievement hunter and need to get your AGP rate up, try this game out.

I'm speechless... Bought just because it was $0,29 and you guess... This one has trading cards, why not buy? Do you know those idiots who buy a ♥♥♥♥load of games and play like 10% of them? Well... I'm one of those idiots and this game is one in the 10%. And do you also know that sensation when you're happy because well... you're progressing in the game and at the same time somewhat sad because it's closer to the end? Yeah, that same freaking sensation we had with Portal my friends.

Surprise.
Underrated game that turned out to be much fun!
Games like these don't get much attention so I decided to review it.

You should definitely give it a try if you like Puzzle games like Portal.

The game is currently only 0.19€ !!!
Trust me, for that 19 cents for this game will grant you even trading cards to make your money back!
*Steam economy cough cough?*

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??!)

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.
