Gravity Guy 2 was probably one of the big games that got released on Windows Phone first , usually we have to wait years for big publishers to get their titles on to Windows Phone ( hello.. Temple Run one , which was on Windows Phone months after Temple Run 2 was released for iPhone ). Now for those of you who have played the first Gravity Guy.. where you have to switch gravity between the top and bottom to move along the level avoiding obstacles, this is nothing like that. Gravity Guy 2 is more of an endless side scroller where you use jump to avoid obstacles.
The game is by MiniClip and is quite a nice title in terms of production value and gameplay. The in game tutorial does the basics but fails to answer things like what is a bulls-eye and perfect landing and I think they could have done it better. After a couple of rounds you will automatically pick up those things by yourself so I am not going to hold the lack of info in the tutorial against the game. Being an xBox live title you have got all the usual leader board, achievements , etc
The game has a in app purchase system where you can buy coins which in turn can be used to buy upgrades and new characters. I know many of our readers are not big fans of the in app purchase model ( I too hate those games where you have to wait x hrs for your energy to replenish unless you make in app purchase to get past that time block ) but I think the devs have implemented it rather tastefully. You can play the game when ever you want and earn game coins when you play. You still have to grind hard to earn those coins.
PS : I called the game Gravity Run 2 ( I blame that on Temple Run ;) ) in the video .. my bad its Gravity Guy 2. In regards to the different characters I am not sure if they offer any special ability that alter the game play .. those things are bloody expensive to purchase.
Gravity Guy 2 is an endless side scroller / platformer where there are multiple platforms and you have to jump your way across them and keep going as long as you can. To keep things challenging you have various obstacles in the form of orbs and laser fields along the way. You have access to abilities jump, double jump and lifts to help you on your journey. You will also notice that the coins go from bronze, silver and to gold as you keep going and performing things like bulls-eye and perfect landing gets you extra coins.
I did see some occasional issues while playing : one was the game does lag at times , which can be really annoying if you are chasing a high score. For some reason jumping or double jumping over the laser field will kill you ( even when you don’t in any way touch the laser .. use the lift to boost you up and you should be ok ). Those issues aside the game is fun to play and is something you should check out if you are in to casual games.
