Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Gravity Crash Ultra is a downloadable arcade-style game in which players maneuver through increasingly difficult levels filled with twists and turns. Each level is packed with brightly colored objects that will jump out at players when they least expect it and try to force them to start the level all over again. This game is all about avoiding obstacles and strategically shooting down items that block the path from point A to point B. To add to the stylized and colorful art style, there are bright bursts of color that look like fireworks and fill the screen when objects are shot. Although some of these objects occasionally look like animals or other creatures, there's no backstory, dialogue, or indication that players are acting with any violent intent. In the end, Gravity Crash Ultra just feels like a harmless arcade game that puts a player's reflexes to the test.
What's it about?
GRAVITY CRASH ULTRA doesn't have much of a story line; it's all about getting into the action right away.

It's not often that a game's graphical style is its standout aspect, but this one delivers that quality for sure. It only makes things more satisfying when the controls and the gameplay run fluidly throughout each level, mesmerizing players through the entire experience. With such immersive gameplay, Gravity Crash Ultra is a winner.
