Gravity Heroes is a fast-paced, chaotically beautiful 2D platform shooter. Take control of your character's gravitational pull with the gravity shifter mechanic and fight hordes of robotic enemies on the ground, walls, or ceiling. Fuelled by 80’s and 90’s nostalgia with an electrifying soundtrack and stylistically popping pixel art style, Gravity Heroes offers action-packed fun playing either by yourself or joined by up to three others locally. Control your gravitational pull - Use the 'Gravity Shifter' as you change the direction of your gravitational pull to walk and slide on ceilings or walls! Discover the meaning behind a robotic uprising - Take your place as a member of the 'Gravity Heroes' as you investigate the mysterious reason behind a broken peace treaty between humans and robotic-beings called synthetics in Story mode. Play solo or team up with up to three friends as you take on synthetic hordes and colossal bosses. An expansive arsenal - Experiment with everything from heat-seeking missiles to bouncing projectiles. A diverse method of attack is needed for an equally diverse robotic threat! Go head-to-head with friends in versus mode - Grab your friends, pick your characters, customize the rules of your match and go head-to-head in this chaotic couch multiplayer game mode. Team up with friends in Survivor mode - Choose up to three of your friends and see how long you can withstand the hordes of corrupted synthetics in Survivor mode! An electrifying soundtrack - Gravity Heroes is set to an amazing 90's inspired soundtrack, with music composed by Barry Leitch, the creator Top Gear's main theme song.

Gravity Heroes Critic Reviews

While charming in places, and with some fun gravity bending mechanics to stroke your novelty seeking, Gravity Heroes isn't all it could be. With a single player campaign that's barely playable, and too many tedious levels, this retro shooter leaves a lot to be desired. In the finer moments of Gravity Heroes, it can be a fun co-op experience, but without online play it is difficult to recommend this game for any single gamer.

There’s not a lot of games like Gravity Heroes on the Switch, despite the console’s penchant for local multiplayer experiences. Most arena combat games on the system are throwaway in that they're great for chaotic fun, but lacking in true depth. Gravity Heroes bridges that gap, by offering a deep control scheme that takes time to master. The short campaign makes up for it in difficulty, and a Hard mode that is genuinely challenging. It’ll take a specific, patient playgroup for this to catch on, but I can see four friends who grew up on games like Metal Slug, absolutely loving this one.

Gravity Heroes gets it right in the action dose, very well accompanied by a neat visual composition and a striking soundtrack. Its content may be short for lonely players, but with the right group of people, the game modes can guarantee hours of fun and adrenaline.
