  • Summary: In Cargo, you will be asked to put your creativity to work as you build up wacky machines that fly and dive as you garner enough fun to restore gravity back to our planet. Search for Cargo floating around and use this debris – from the Statue of Liberty to Big Ben and the Eiffel Towner to stake out new lands. Boasting a completely fresh and unique look, the game story hooks in players as it combines physics based puzzles solving with insanely addictive game play. Players will be challenged to think and use their solutions in this outrageous game where gravity and creativity meets fun! Expand

    Cargo! is a little on the short side (I finished it in five hours and probably could've improved on that), but it delights and surprises at every turn as it propels you through its frankly baffling narrative. Much like Ice-Pick Lodge themselves, you'll never quite be able to predict what it's going to throw at you next.

    Fundamentally, it's about having FUN – because FUN is important.

    Funny game with little long term motivation.

    A rather good little game, but it's a game held back by its own compulsion to be ambiguous, not to mention the staggering lack of things to do outside of its enigmatic objectives and vehicle building.

    There's that feeling that I should have fun playing the game, but most of the time I'm bored or angry because the controls are buggy. But if you like to be creative, maybe you'll be happy in this colourful world.

    Cargo: The Quest for Gravity pulls you in with its surreal visuals and strange premise, but its gameplay rarely gets off the ground.

    Proof that gleeful surrealism does not automatically indicate arthouse brilliance. [Aug 2011, p.74]

    This is one of the better games I have played! It is so unique and strange there is nothing quite like it. The art and voice acting are primo. The story is about the end of earth I guess and you have to harvest fun from the buddies who are these strange creatures. You take them for rides and make chains of them and do various other things for the gods of this beautifully crafted world. Check this game out if you want to see something different from the normal non creative first person shooter. Expand

    Had a chance of being good but the confusing goals make it a bit of a flop. The voice acting could use some work too. It sounds like one person made all of it and didn't really know what they were doing. The vehicle creator is neat but it's really limited as far as what pieces you can place and where. Expand

    "Cargo! The Quest for Gravity" is a... quite confusing game, where you're never really sure about what you have to do. So you end up swimming around and kicking naked babies-like creatures (sic). What? Expand
