Gravity Ghost Deluxe Edition
Top Critic Average
Developer: Ivy Games
When a ghost girl’s best friend goes missing, she’ll turn the whole universe upside down to find him.
Set in a beautiful hand-painted world, Gravity Ghost is a planetary platformer where orbiting is an art form. In more than 100 dizzying levels, you’ll put your aerial skills to the test against planets that bounce, break, splash, spin, repel, and more.
Winner of Paste Magazine’s 1 Best Videogame Soundtrack of the year, Gravity Ghost is filled with 100% original tracks by Ben Prunty, composer of FTL.
Animated in a charming storybook style, and voiced by Emmy Award-winning actress Ashly Burch (Horizon Zero Dawn, Life is Strange), and voice-over artist Logan Cunningham (Bastion, Transistor), Gravity Ghost is a surprisingly human story about how love, like gravity, invisibly holds us together even as life threatens to pull us apart.

Gravity Ghost is an almost meditative puzzling experience. The gameplay is simple to understand and puzzles are quick to complete, and with no pressure of failure it's quite relaxing. Some issues with movement could be better but overall if you want a game you just want to relax with then Gravity Ghost is a good choice.
Gravity Ghost imagines the maelstrom of adolescence further complicated by its protagonist's untimely death. As an elliptic platformer, it's concerned with reaching a neat-and-tidy series of goals. As a narrative experience, it's consumed by normalizing the despondency of its cast. Gravity Ghost's kinetic novelty may have ebbed since its 2015 debut, but its resolution, which seeks idyllic healing from an enormous tragedy, still creates a powerful statement.
