“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 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.

Really interesting indie game. Not being able to play in windowed mode is a bit of a downer, but the puzzles and how to play the game are fun. Hard mode in my honest opinion is actually pretty challenging, Pick this game up when it's on sale sell the cards back and actually make a little money, while enjoying a unique indie platformer.

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 bought this game on sale for something like 18p, but after having played it I would happily spend much more on it.

It's a platform puzzle game that plays like games such as Braid etc. The in-game music is awesome and as I said at the start, even if you pay full price for this game you won't be dissapointed.

Im glad this was only 0.29 Cents, But I'm also glad that I bought it.. It has an amazing calm and soothing soundtrack which I could listen to all day, The game itself is very fun and puzzle-like which excites me to see what I could do

10/10

Great game with fun gameplay. It's a short game, you can 100% the achievements in one sitting. The puzzle aspect was fun and it felt like a fun version of the game Portal at times. I recommend this game at the current prize or just wait till it goes in a bundle. It is a fun casual space game.

I've only played this for a short time but what I've seen so far has been pretty good. Controls can be a bit tricky at first but once mastered this game comes into it's own. Can't complain at the price either!

Gravity is everywhere. Gravity is everything. What do we know about the world? What do we know about each other? What do we know about the mysterious alien dimensions and galaxies ..?
This game is like Interstellar, but better, more beautiful and cheaper.
8 Interstellar/10

14 cent game, 3 cards worth 4 cents each (after steam tax stuff) = 2 cent game. Is it worth the 2 cents? Yes. Is it a difficult, repetitive, bad music, bad controls and bad graphics game? Yes. Do I recommend the game? Yes. Why? You can't beat the price ands it not that bad once you get the hang of it. I just don't see myself playing for any longer then 3 hours total playtime.

Pros:
Good concept
Interesting gameplay

Cons:
Graphics are lackluster at best
Gameplay becomes repetitive very quickly

While this is a great concept, the game play just became too repetitive and there was no context to what you were doing or why you were doing it. Graphics are also an issue, and combined with the gameplay, it makes the game seem like a flash game you could play online for free.
I'd have to give this game a 3/10

3. Got Money = Good Game

Just kidding. This game is proof that good game doesn't need good graphic. :D

Enjoy.
