If turn-based fighting is too far off the beaten path for you, then perhaps next week’s Xbox Live release will be more to your taste. Gravity Guy is a nice, simple platformer from Miniclip.
In Gravity Guy, the titular dude automatically runs from left to right as he’s chased by a Stormtrooper lookalike. GG can’t jump like in traditional platformers, but tapping the screen flips the gravity. Thus players must quickly tap the screen, flipping the Guy back and forth in order to get him past obstacles and away from the enemy. It’s simple and challenging fun in a Doodle Jump sort of way.
The Xbox Live version of Gravity Guy rolls out on Wednesday, September 7 for $2.99. Want to try it out in advance? The original Flash version is free to play at Miniclip’s site.
