“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

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.

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.

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.

1. Bought the game for 0.17

2. Actually played the game while waiting for the cards and not idle you ♥♥♥♥s. At least acknowledge and respect the fact that the devs put in work to make the game. The least you could do is to play it.

3. Post an actual review on whether this game is good or bad you like♥♥♥♥♥s.

In which case:
This game was surprisingly good,not exactly difficult but it's still enjoyable. What I like is the fact that you are not binded by a single means to clear a stage, but by your understanding of the game mechanics. Which open up to a lot of possibility.

4. Sell the cards or not,you're choice,
