Airscape: The Fall of Gravity

Reviewed on: PC

Airspace: The Fall of Gravity is a beautifully unique platformer about an octopus and his other aquatic friends who get abducted by a mechanical alien race. You play as a space octopus (an octopus with an H20 helmet) who must jump, dodge and run through insane landscapes to rescue its friends and other critters. What makes this game unique is that there is no “downside” to gravity: Instead of being constantly grounded to one side of the screen, the entire screen rotates as you jump and swim to other parts of the levels. I’ll admit that it’s a bit jarring at first and takes a few levels to get used to—especially when you get into the more difficult zones—but once you adjust to it, you can really use it to your advantage. The game features 18 zones with various landscapes—from oceans to mechanical worlds—and over 60 levels. This game is beautifully done and strangely adorable. Airscape also includes its own orchestral soundtrack, which is just as stunning as the game. The sound effects are epic. The attention to detail is really quite spectacular—I enjoyed every aspect of this game. If you like platformers and Super Mario games, I highly recommend this one. –Nicole Stephenson
