To play Gravity Block from Playsteria on your iPhone or iPod touch you are required to master the different “gravity axis” that exist in each game. You do this in order to move a cube from point a to point b, maneuvering it through an obstacle course towards the exit. The graphics appear colorful yet there are pixelated mazes in what is supposed to be outer space. Each level has different challenges like disappearing walls, “volatile blocks,” and “the big bully,” an entity that can absorb your cube and ship it back to its original station.
I’ll admit there were times when I enjoyed myself while playing Gravity Block, but overall I felt a bit under-stimulated. Not to sound like a complete and total blockhead, but this game’s overall objective was boring for me. It would be unfair to discredit it altogether. There were times when I got completely engrossed in it since Gravity Block’s music is sort of soothing and therapeutic.
Whether or not it was done intentionally, with the purpose of perhaps illustrating how bleak and isolated space is, the final product feels plain and the icon for each levels exit bears a likeness that I find a bit confusing. There is an orbiting of stars that has no effect on the outcome of the game and does little to add to its general ambiance. On the upside, each game can be beat with a variety of different tactics, so at least monotony isn’t a factor against it. Gravity Block has potential and can be enhanced with improved graphics and varied gameplay patterns.
