“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.”

I'm currently a Grand Master Gravitymancer. :) This game is simple, clever, and can become very challenging. Its worth if you can pick it up for 1 or 2 dollars. right now its 15 cents for the winter steam sale. WORTH!!!

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 :) .

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.

Defy Gravity (henceforth known as DG) is an example of what a small indie game should be.

Gameplay:
Based on two types of gravity spheres, one pushing you away and one pulling you towards it. Using these you have to traverse levels and bounce/throw yourself across pits. Overall the gameplay is simple, standard WASD and mouse, plus having support for a controller.

Graphics&Sound:
What are you expecting out of an indie game? The sound is above average, as the music is pretty nice. The graphics are typical, though not bad enough to be annoying. The one complaint i do have with this game is that your character looks as if he's using a Super Soaker rather than a gravity gun.

The Good:
I got this when it was on sale for $.14 (yes, 14/100) and it was a nice, cheap pickup. It'll provide a good amount of fun.

The Bad:
The controls are a bit wonky and some of the levels require split-second reactions.

Overall Grade: C+
Not Bad, but it's a small game, good to play if you got a few minutes to kill.

This is a simple game, just jump on obstacle to avoid death, Use the weapons wisely as you know it has limited charges and cooldown after use.

Graphically smooth with tight, responsive controls, great level design, intruiging story, and a marvelous difficulty curve. If you love all of these qualities in a platformer, buy super meat boy instead.

This is a good game, but depending on what you're really expecting from a casual puzzle platformer, this game might not be for you. Takes a little effort and skills to go through late game, so you'll either end up enjoying it, or have more hair-pulling rage moments then you expect.

Not bad to kill time when taking a break from the usual power gaming. But if you ask me, it should've been free, and not worth paying for. You can grab it when it's on sale, otherwise, there are way too many other options to choose from.

Don't get me wrong, it's not TERRIBLE and I DO like it....but there's a reason why I'm voting this down and it's not the graphics.


True, there are areas that will make you rage-quit and the music is lovely....however, there are moments where you'll think the game is just being an @ss for the sake of being an @ss.

I got this game while it was cheap and it's worth the price of $0.14 cents (When it's on sale). That is exactly how much I would have paid for this.



Also...the game is short, so keep that in mind.

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.

I bought Defy Gravity for 0.09€ and it was worth.

You control your guy (girl?) that has a swaggie gun thing that changes the gravity force of the place you shoot, while accompanied by a deep-space swag overload music and there is the challenging hard mode which I love-hate with all my heart.

The graphics are not swag approved and there is also a lack of story.

Overall it's fun and I would like a sequel, cause I got another 0.09€ to spend.

A fun little game! I got it for 14 cents, and it's worth it! It is really relaxing, has a nice soundtrack, yet challenging and well made. If I had to compare it to other games, I would say It's a mix between Mario and Portal. It is enjoyable, and I recommend it to everyone, I am not a big fan of platformers, but stil enjoyed it.
PEACE!
