Gravity Guy is a 2010 side-scrolling endless runner action arcade video game developed and published by Miniclip.

Availability[edit]

It was first released for iOS on the App Store and Symbian OS on Nokia Store on December 8, 2010 and also available on Miniclip website using Flash at the time of release. It was later released for macOS on Mac App Store on March 10, 2011, for Windows Phone on Windows Phone Store on September 7, 2011, for Android on Google Play on November 23, 2011 and for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 on Microsoft Store on November 28, 2012.

As of late 2018, the game is no longer available on the App Store, Google Play Store and Microsoft Store.

Gameplay[edit]

The player controls Gravity Guy by tapping the screen (or pressing the keyboard space bar key on the computer versions) to switch gravity. The objective is to run as far as possible while avoiding obstacles that can trap the main character (who can be killed by a police officer), falling or flying off the screen. If killed, the player returns to the last checkpoint taken.

The three types of gaming modes in the game are Story Mode, Endless and Practice. Story mode features up to sixty levels for both "Run" and "Rescue", thirty levels for each part of the story, with up to fifteen levels in the original Flash game.[3] Endless mode consists of running through randomly generated levels, while Practice mode goes through the levels from the story without the police officer. This game also contains multiplayer mode, allowing up to four players (using Game Center on iOS or locally) to play the game.[4]
