Blast off with No Gravity for Android
What’s better than an awesome space based shooter, with great graphics? One with an immersive storyline, lots of missions…and great graphics. You get all that and more with No Gravity from Realtech VR. It was originally a PSP game, and they did a good job bringing it over to Android. No Gravity also supports a slew of different devices, whereas another great looking space game (Galaxy on Fire) does not. After spending some time blasting asteroids and bad guys, here’s what I thought about No Gravity…
The controls are fairly simple; you don’t have to be a genius to figure them out. You can pilot your ship through one of three different methods; with the D-Pad, accelerometer, or a Zeemote. Everything is laid out pretty well, and easy to navigate on the display; nothing really got in the way on my Captivates screen. You can also play in the first or third person viewpoint which is nice for those of us who like to change perspectives during gameplay. The first few missions introduce you to the storyline, and you’ll have to zoom around and blast asteroids. You’ll basically follow the storyline, and complete missions/objectives to progress in the game.
No Gravity has 5 characters to choose from with 5 different space ships; each of those ships comes in 4 different colors as well. As far as depth of play is concerned there are 31 missions to play and two modes of difficulty. You’ll blast through your enemies with 6 different weapons, and there is also a nice Rewards System with 30 different achievements to unlock. As for extras, you can view the credits, game artwork, movies, and listen to a jukebox that plays tracks from the game.
No Gravity is a polished game, and it shows in the graphics & gameplay. I never played the original PSP version, but I’m glad I ran across the Android port in the market. When a lot of games are being optimized specifically for certain phones, it’s a major plus that it runs on phones that aren’t Tegra 2 devices or the Xperia play. There’s isn’t a free version to try at the moment, and the full version will cost you around $4.06. If you’d like to play a fun Space Shooter with some very slick graphics, go check out No Gravity in the Android market.
