Gravity Ghost is a game all about jumping and flying between planets, utilizing their gravitational pull and elements. It’s not all plain sailing however with the tutorial being very basic, new abilities being drip-fed slowly and a lot of learning with how the flying pans out. I grew to enjoy the game a lot mostly due to the play style of levels and how if I got stuck on a level I could simply go somewhere else, at the end of the day Gravity Ghost is a lovely little platformer that starts slow but builds into a decent platformer.
