Gravity Pods

Gravity Pods

This is a heck of a level

Gravity is a fickle mistress. The game Gravity Pods knows this. Your job is to blast a particle and get pods that change gravity to smash it into a rotating purple sphere.

Gameplay

You have two things to worry about in this game:

1) The aim of your cannon

2) The position of the gravity pods

During the first 15 or so levels, you only have control over the first variable. You have 180 degrees of freedom, and trust me when I say that every tenth of a degree is going to be important. The gravity pods are placed and all you have to do is worry about placing the shot that will lead your particle on a path blasting the purple rotating sphere. The gun is controlled by the arrow keys btw.

I placed that pod all by myself!

Then, you have to start placing the gravity pods yourself. This is where things get devilish. You drag these potent mysteries of physics into your sandbox and blast away.

If you take too many shots, it makes you ’start over’ the level. What does this mean? Absolutely nothing. All the parameters are kept, except you have to replace the gravity pods. And you don’t lose any points or have to go back or anything like that.

Technical

Very smooth game. It has the look of a very old game, but has very complicated physics. One of my favorite things is when you shoot your particle at just the right angle, and it gets sucked into a loop around the gravity pod.

You don’t have to worry about upgrades or anything like that. Your task is simple, yet devilish. Having the throwback graphics really makes this game, as it helps you focus on the task at hand.

Final Verdict

Fun background game. It’s level based so play a bit, do some work and then play another level. This can be frustrating at times, but each level is very solvable and never ‘gimmicky.’
