Gravity Heroes

by HugoStudica - Jam Entry

A new outfit that can change its user's gravitational field is being tested and you are one of the first soldiers to try out the outfit.

---------------------------------

This is a 2D platformer shooter that differentiates itself by the fact that you need to change gravity to be able to play and move strategically to kill all the robot enemies.

Please like the Facebook page to see what we are improving:

Update:

- Added score for players
- Now there is a time limit to play, every time you kill a robot enemy you increase the time a few seconds.
- Added some smoke particles.
- Changed the screenshot.

Switching gravity is so confusing... in a positive way! I had fun trying to pick the right one to avoid being hit and be able to shoot back. It's solid entry, which could be prototype of something bigger. BTW: Is it me, or is it impossible to avoid shots, because they are charging faster than switching gravity?

Cool game. I like a lot the graphics.
It was a bit difficult to control though, to aim properly at the enemies.

A really nice game. Beautiful art and interesting mechanic. It was a little bit hard to handle gravity, but I think it make the game challenging. Bullet could be bigger which make it easier to hit enemies, just a suggestion. Congratulation for the game :)

Amazing graphics! and cool try at new mechanic. It's really hard to play, but I guess its something you could work on. Maybe look at Space Q i think it's called. That's really nice.

Great pixelart and music!
The gravity switch is so hard to get a grip on however, but it's a good concept.

Wow really fun concept with the entire gravity switching mechanic and next to some great art this is overall super solid. The mechanic was rather confusing and also the slight delay on it makes it hard to dodge but still a very fun game regardless.

Jogo muito divertido, inovador e a musica é ótima, parabéns!
a tela não se ajusta muito bem na versão windowed, mas quando usa full screen fica ótimo hehe, outra sugestão seria aumentar o tamanho do tiro pra dar a sensação de poder, mas no geral é um ótimo jogo e criativo, Parabéns!!

Really cool game ! Nice mechanics, beautiful art, and really fun !
It is just weird that the character looks the other side when switching gravity and firing at the same time ^^

I could not get the hang of the controls in their various orientations. I instinctively tried to use rotation triangles of WASD based on my orientation. Maybe make an option for that control scheme? Cool pixel art and excellent MegaMan 5/6 like music.

Beautiful pixel art and great animations! They both form a beautiful combination! :P It does give that action/platformer vibe, which is pretty fun, really challenging too!

Controls kinda made me feel a bit confused when playing. The gravity switching mechanism felt like a bit too much, but all controls are really responsive! :D

Great work! :)
