Summary

Ant-Gravity Tinys Adventure is a simple yet OK puzzle game. You can rotate the level in four ways and do this to navigate the level but also move objects within the level. It takes some getting used to and like I say it’s easy to pick up and play but you have no hook to keep coming back so it’s a game you may stop playing when the difficulty ramps up because why bother. I managed to get a load of levels done but my desire to play dwindled to nothing which is a shame as more variety and spice could have made it a different proposition.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
