What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Gravity Guy is a fast-paced action game that involves flipping gravity to keep the character running. There is minor cartoon violence, but not too much else that would be considered inappropriate for kids. Young kids might find the gravity-reversing concept a little tricky.

Is it any good?
GRAVITY GUY has simple controls but is a challenge to beat. You simply tap the screen anywhere to reverse gravity as Gravity Guy races forward. You'll need to switch gravity back and forth to keep him from falling down (or up) and to help him hop over obstacles. You get unlimited lives to pass the 30 levels, which start off tame and become increasingly difficult. If you get stuck behind an obstacle for too long, the robot catches up and quickly dispatches you, sending you back to the last checkpoint.
There's also a clever multiplayer mode allowing up to four people to play simultaneously -- each person gets a section of the screen to tap as all of the characters crowd each other around in the same space. It can be tricky to see if there are too many fingers, but it's still a lot of fun. Overall, Gravity Guy is fun to play, and the graphics are excellent, though it can get old if you die in the same place too many times.
