Reviews

“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

By mastering the use of these abilities Kara is able to augment her jump in order to almost fly past obstacles. These powers can also be utilized to move objects that block her path and platforms that Kara stands on in order to traverse the levels.

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.

Nailing that feeling of satisfaction when you’ve figured out a solution to the task at hand is very difficult. Not all mechanics allow it and not all games offer more than one route from point A to point B. I believe gravity manipulation and physics-based gameplay is one of the greatest things gaming has bothered exploring. When done well, it is logical, intuitive and rewarding. It’s like pulling out that second to last piece of Jenga.

This is what Defy Gravity Extended is: an extremely satisfying game. You play as Kara, following the Samus school of power armour where you couldn’t tell the gender were it not for the game description. She has to prove herself as a Gravitymancer in the Gauntlet, using her sassy gravity gun (which looks a bit like a Super Soaker). The gun can set two kinds of fields: one that attracts and one that repels. This is the basic premise, and the levels are variations upon previously-set rules. You might encounter enemies who are also affected by the gravity fields, a level may turn your anti-gravity shield permanently on, or you’ll have to use platforms affected by your gravity gun as well.

The graphics are really basic, and I admit I was a tad skeptical when I saw some screenshots, but after 5 minutes into the game all my doubts were washed away. The levels are very well-made and reward smart thinking. The first few stages give you hints where to place the respective gravity fields, but you will soon realize that you can use even less resources than recommended.

The music is also really good. Now, I’m not a music reviewer and I lack the capacity to translate how music feels using words, but Defy Gravity’s soundtrack took me off-guard in a very pleasant way.

The only complaint I can think of is a lack of level editor, which seems extremely appropriate for a game like this.

This is a good puzzle + action game, which also requires your micro operations. You will find the game becomes more and more challenging with your gravity gun and anti-gravty gun. However, a great difficulty awaits you because you have only the first gun in the hard mode. In a word, this game is very worth playing.

一个很有挑战的动作类解密游戏。解密元素在于你在游戏种可以操作重力枪和反重力枪,还有可以不使你受到(反)重力场影响的外套。你会发现游戏越来越难,要求你能灵活使用两类枪。但其实,后面还有困难模式等待你:让你只能用重力(引力)枪。

A fun and challenging game. The gameplay mechanics of the "portals" was a great idea, shout out to the developers.

For $3, it's a fun experience for people who don't get too frustrated on repetitive deaths and tough obsticles.

It's quite short if you have the skill, but mastering it takes a bit of time.
