  • Summary: Get ready for the hit game of the summer! Don't just take our word for it here is what the Critics think:

    "Gravity Runner’s retro graphics combined with the smooth gameplay, and the gravity-switching novelty, makes it extremely entertaining to play. The app’s developer
    (We Are Colin) has done a great job." - App Advice

    "We have been lucky enough to be among the few who got to review it early and I’ve had a hard time putting it down." - The Portable Gamer

    "Gravity Runner has stepped up the bar for past and future platformers and it is a game that anyone, from any age and era, can definitely enjoy." - Touch Gen - 4/5

    "Gravity Runner takes retro runners to a whole new frustratingly addictive level" - Touch Aholics

    "This game is a perfect example of how you can turn a good game (like Canabalt) and make it super awesome!" - ExtraLives.tv

    At such a small price, why wouldn't you try it out!?

    GRAVITY RUNNER
    -------------

    Take control of Colin as he automatically runs through levels filled with pitfalls and spikes. Tap the screen to make Colin jump over obstacles in his world. But this alone won’t keep him alive.

    If you tap the screen while Colin is in mid-air, gravity will be flipped! Master this gravity flipping ability to help Colin jump, glide and evade all obstacles placed in his path.

    Gravity Runner not only plays fantastic, but looks and sounds great too. The game has retro graphics, and charming sound to give a new twist to the classic platform game. You'd be crazy to miss out on Gravity Runner, especially for such a small price!

    Gravity Runner is nauseatingly addictive and will always leave you wanting just one more go!

    There is definitely room to grow from here, but Gravity Runner has stepped up the bar for past and future platformers and it is a game that anyone, from any age and era, can definitely enjoy.

    Gravity Runner has its merits, but its overly-simplified control scheme does it an injustice.

    I like everything about Gravity Runner except for the game itself. I love the concept to death. I think that done properly, it could be an incredibly fun platformer, one that could really play with gravity bending the way that this does. But as an endless platformer, Gravity Runner just does not work.

    Initial perceptions of a rather clumsy Canabalt clone are wide of the mark, as Gravity Runner gradually blossoms into an addictive platform-puzzler.

    Gravity Runner is certainly a fun title to jump in to, but unless you can stomach the constant failure it's a hard game to love.

    The need to time every jump and gravity shift to the pixel makes Gravity Runner a grueling experience.
