“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.

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.

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.

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 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 is really boring.
Browser games still better than Defy Gravity.
It's also to expensive.

I warn you don't buy this game!
(but if its on the sale, you can get more money back, as u spent for this game. Traiding cards will help you)

Very strategic game, makes you angry if you are impatient yet it gives you motivation and enhanced your problem-solving skills.

Also this game is cheap, bought it for only 5.00pesos/$.09 .
This game is worth buying. Try it, I know you won't regret it.

This game is easy if you play the easy mode of course. But when I play the hard mode, it takes hours to end this sheeeeet. Just be patient and have fun, raging will give you wrinkles, so just pretend that you are happy and smile :) .

Lots of players are buying this game because of the low price - at sales usually it hits -90%, meaning that you'll probably profit from it's cards.
But about the game itself: it's a good one. You control an astronaut (?) who has a special tool/weapon at his service: it can shoot two kinds of energy cores: one attracts things near itself, the another one repels. Sounds really basic, but the level design is really good, some levels require thinking and puzzle-solving skill, while other ones are more like based on timing- and aiming.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this game, if you don't mind the simple graphics, it's a really well-executed puzzler-platformer game with medium-high difficulty.

Tough platforming game, but worth the cheap price you can find it at, or especially when it goes on sale you can easily find it for less than a buck. The goal, to reach the end of each level offering a different level of difficulty with different obstacles. The gimmick, a double jump ability and an anti-gravity/well-gravity gun. Using both of these while stagnant is easy though tricky, but when you have to use them while on the run can prove quite difficult and at times frustrating. The hard mode features only the well-gravity gun. Beating this latter mentioned segment proved really difficult and a true test of the puzzle and platforming skills. I did find a few odd issues. At times the screen would go black when loading or reloading a level. Shooting would fix the problem, however, if the level was saved at a save point, you may need to act quickly, shooting and eliminating your gravity shot then moving forward when given limited time only added to the difficulty and when it's unnecessary difficulty, it made it really bad. The graphics are simple, the sound and music forgettable, but it's the gameplay that wins this game a recommendation.

Overall though, I did appreciate the tests and found the game worthy of playing and I do recommend it for you if you can deal with proper frustration and sometimes improper and unnecessary frustrations.
