    Gravity Ghost is a nice surprise. It isn't violent, has a good story and is original, something you rarely find these days.

    Expressed as a product, Gravity Ghost is an inventive platformer with a precarious and affecting narrative.

    It's hard to convey the toughest moments, those moments that we compartmentalize and repress beyond recognition as adults. And it's especially hard to convey such moments in language and images that both children and adults can appreciate and understand. That Gravity Ghost accomplishes this feat with such seeming ease is a testament to its imagination and its power.

    It does a great job of creating compelling mechanics, so it’s slightly disappointing the bigger design where everything comes together to make really interesting or challenging gameplay fails to materialise. But it absolutely succeeds in creating a tranquil world of weirdness.

    Just when Gravity Ghost is hitting its stride, it comes to a quick close. The puzzles are never too challenging, but if you can relax and go with the flow, the simple platforming sequences have an almost zen-like tranquility.

    With Gravity Ghost, the independent developer Ivy Games carries us to a metaphysical world beyond death, without being able to fully capture Newtonian physics’ potential.

    In short bursts, or for younger gamers, Gravity Ghost is worth a look, but considering the style and polish applied to such a basic central concept, I’m far more excited to play Ivy Games next game rather than this one.

    Pros:

    Excellent: music, story, storytelling, game mechanics, game play, voice acting, visuals (subjective but I enjoyed the style) Tiny

    Tiny Tina from BL2 (Ash Burch) and Narrator from Bastion (Logan Cunningham) are among the cast.

    Cons:

    The last few mazes are made more difficult to solve with limited screen view area.
    The final puzzle with Fox Guardian is ridiculously difficult if you are color blind (I had to bring in help.)

    10/10 Wondrous achievement.

    Interesting ideas which were individually executed well, though it felt like the pace was a little slow, too few ideas over too many levels.Interesting ideas which were individually executed well, though it felt like the pace was a little slow, too few ideas over too many levels. The length of her hair being a resource gauge for terraforming was cool and the Guardians were entertaining but there just isn't enough challenge, content or promise of content to bring me back. The experience as a whole fails to capitlise on it's unique mechanics. Expand
