A really cool concept of ‘alternating gravity’ was brought to life with the Gravity Guy game and was well accepted by the iOS community. We were expecting an improved version with Gravity Guy 2 but as it turns out, it has nothing in common with the former.
Gravity Guy 2 is not like other popular 2D platformers, either. You are an urban jumper, hopping from the top of one building to another and besides the normal jump action, the major control here, is lifting the ceiling of the skyscapers, which throws you in the air. You might want to see the screenshots below.
The name Gravity Guy 2 is just a clever marketing strategy!
Along the endless run, collect coins and gems while evading lasers, mines and furnaces. Of course, its a long fall down. Add some extra points by landing on green mats or by passing through green lasers. Use the coins to buy power-ups and better characters, which, by the way, seems to be a bit expensive.
To tell the truth, keeping aside the fact that I was tricked into buying this game, I am overall satisfied with Gravity Guy 2. It takes sometime to get used to the timing and controls, but once familiar, the game does get to you. The neon-ish environment, subtle sound effects and DJ background music surely adds to the experience.
In the end, Gravity Guy 2 is a mixed bag and I wouldn’t say that it is a must buy. But if it comes free, its surely worth the look.
Would I Buy Again:Yes, when it drops free
Who Is It For:Casual gamers
What I Like:The graphics looks cool
What I Don't Like:The cunning name
Final Statement:Wait for it to be free
• STORY •
In a world where gravity laws were broken, a brave guy was held captive for rebelling and defying the rules! Being the first one ever to rise against the system, he found himself in danger, and in need to run for his life.
However, after being relentlessly chased down by the Gravity Troops, our hero was finally captured and beamed up to a space ship, only to find a terrifying truth: they were going to clone him.
As an evil plan to organize dangerous races across Gravity Guy's once free world, his DNA was collected and the cloning process began. Along with our hero, other inhabitants were also cloned, so that every time someone loses, the race can be restarted.
