“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

The Achievement Hunter in me couldn't stop myself from this challenge. And it was quick the trial I must admit. This is a really fun enjoyable game to sink a couple hours into. Got good value for the time spent. Would totally recommend anyone who wants a challenge for a few hours.

Meh.




Hm, apparently 1 word reviews aren't good enough.
Do I recommend the game for most people? No. The graphics and sound design are not all that great, and the gameplay could be a whole lot more polished. There was at least one game-breaking exploit, fortunately only for the first playthrough. I don't remember what it was.
Tacking on 'more' levels simply by duplicating the game is also a neutral feature, since some people would want more of the game; for others, it is simply an unneccessary hurdle to get 100% completion.
The ideas behind this game, however, are really good, and I would recommend this for any would-be developer. There is a lot to learn from it, and done well this could be amazing.

Altering Gravity is nothing new, however altering it with those Gravity Wells is somewhat new, and unexplored.
So the concept is great. But you only NEED to use the Wells in the last few levels, the rest is almost completely possible without them.
Another big issue I had was the limit of the Wells. You can only have to Wells at a time, with one being normal-, and the other anti-gravity. They don't have a timelimit so that's nice, but I would much rather have unlimited Wells with a timelimit than two infinite Wells.

But it's only one dollar, so if you feel like playing a little platformer pick this up.

A nice puzzle platformer with a mechanic that feels very unique.

You use a gun to push and pull yourself and certain objects to navigate through levels. Music is very nice with an atmospheric tone to it as well as the sound design.

Honestly I sucked for the most part with this game so I ended up skipping through a bunch of levels even on hard mode lol. But I can tell you that this is a very good puzzle platformer if your in games like Braid and Portal.

Cheesy but surprisingly fun puzzle platformer where you manipulate gravity using a gun that looks more like a super soaker. This game is frequently on sale for less than 30¢ and has trading cards--if you like puzzle platformers you really can't go wrong.

The game is actually one of my favourite puzzle games atm, due to it's unique gameplay mechanics, it'll give you from 2-4 hours of gameplay depending on how long it takes you to finish the challenges. It is however somewhat difficult at parts adding more thought process and skill are added into the equation to create a fantastic gameplay experience! I'm very glad that I bought this. I would buy this on or off sale (i bought it during a sale).
The only downside is the music :/ made me question my sanity...

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.

Defy Gravity is a platformer with a simple concept: Get from point A to point B by creating attraction/repulsion areas. The game is simple but fun, and provides a good challenge during the second half of the game. It can be tricky but the checkpoints are placed in such a way that you're willing to take risks and try new ideas to get past some obstacle - a very important attribute for puzzle games.

The only thing that is sub par is the animation (or lack of). It isn't really needed, but the game has the GameMaker feel, a bunch of sprites just moving around the screen with a short walking animation, which I find kind of off putting. It isn't important, but it should be mentioned.

If you like physics manipulation games or platformers, then I recommend buying this. The game is $3 at the time of this writing, more than worth it.
