Catch A Rising Star
HIGH Strong, iterative puzzle design.
LOW The pulled-back perspective frequently leads to missed jumps.
WTF The Rock can teleport by swallowing the Star.
Gravity has had an odd place in gaming history, often serving as a secondary embellishment to the action in brawlers or platformers instead of earning its own place at the forefront as a central mechanic. Not so in Altered Matter’s puzzle-platformer Etherborn, where the entire game design revolves around the manipulation of gravity, both figuratively and literally.
