“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??!)

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 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.

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

For such a cheap and simple game, it's a fun game. I originally got it because it was less than a dollar and it had steam cards, but the time I played it for steam cards, I really enjoyed it. It's a bit different from other puzzle games if you'd call it a puzzle game. There are times you have to act fast and if you don't, you will find yourself falling towards the ground and then you'll have to start back at the last checkpoint. It can take a little practice, but it pays off.

In the end, it's a game that for its price is quite satisfying and worth buying if you have the spare change.

Defy Gravity is a very cool puzzle game where you use a gravity gun to either attract or repel yourself along each level. As the levels progress, new obstacles are presented and things become tougher.

It is a very challenging game and some of the later levels look downright impossible. However, i was able to complete them all, even all the levels in hard mode. Sure it gets frustrating, but the checkpoint system is very forgiving.

I had to lower my 2560x1440 display to 1920x1080 in order to get this to run full screen.

Pros
-Cheap price
-Challenging gameplay
-Smooth framerate
-Extremely stable. Never crashed on me. I use Windows 8.1
-Great mechanics
-Good music (does repeat quite a bit but the songs never get old)

Cons
-Doesn't run full screen in 2560x1440
-Not able to change key bindings. The "W" key is also jump and messed me up many times when i accidentally hit it.

I picked this up for 29 cents. You can't beat that. Even the full price of 2.99 is good if you enjoy puzzle games that challenge you.

Final score: 9/10

got the game for 29 cents sold the cards for 67 cents 10/10!


in all seriousness the games not bad since its a bargin bin game i dont like paying full price for any games so i say wait til its on sale which always seems to be 29 cents, the game is challanging but not to a point of making you rage all in all if you really wanna play it $3 is fair but 29 cents you are going to make your money back and still have a good game plus its a good boost to the achievment list and even a bigger plus if you are a platformer style fan

game 7/10
music 7/10
value.... i made money 111/10

Would work as a free Flash game online, but paying money for this is over the top. The ingame graphics and the gameplay are worthy of a Flash game.
I like the concept. But that's the only thing I like.
