Summary

Gravity Duck is a no-frills well-executed puzzle platformer. Your gimmick is you can swap which surfaces you stick to and this really mixes the level design up. Levels are bite-sized so it’s perfect for the commute on Vita and a decent quick brain workout with the PlayStation 4. Like I say it really does keep it simple but because they nail level design and control its hard to knock it too much. In short, it’s a competent puzzler that helps keep your brain active even if you may not see it through to the end.

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!
