Ketchapp Games loves the endless runner genre. And its newest game, Gravity Switch, is no exception.
Gravity Switch takes a fresh approach, though, as you move a block, suspended in zero gravity, safely through a maze of shifting pillars. If the block hits one of the pillars, or if you’re flung into open space, it’s game over.
You’ll have to regularly remind yourself of the laws of physics while paying careful attention to where the pillars are moving at the same time. It’s not easy, but we have some tips that will help you survive Gravity Switch’s many challenges for longer.
Always look ahead
A forward-looking approach is preferable in Gravity Switch. You never stop moving, nor do you get to slow down, so you’ll need to adapt to changes in the environment quickly and with little warning.
You’ll want to look ahead to see how the columns are moving up and down. This will help you roughly plan out your path of travel. Always keep your eyes slightly ahead of your brick and your score will rapidly increase.
This game moves quickly, which means your actions will need to match that pace. Don’t wait until you’re right next to a wall to jump. Doing so almost surely guarantees you’ll crash and burn.
Instead, jump a second or two before you make it to the obstacle to jump. You’ll safely land on the other side and live to see your score float into the leaderboards.
Practice makes perfect
While it’s easy to take the above tips into account, this game is difficult. It will take many failed attempts. Gravity Switch rewards those who take the time to truly get a feel for the game’s design and controls.
Patience is key. You’ll find that the top scores rarely break 100, so don’t be discouraged. Take some time to figure out how to best use the above tips to safely maneuver your brick and you’ll make steady progress.
Gravity Switch is an unrelenting challenge, but that’s what makes it so addictive. Stick to the tips above and you’ll manipulating the laws of physics like a pro.
