A remake of the Amiga/Atari ST game from 1989 (see Gravity Force).
With a similar control scheme and feel to Thrust, the aim is to make your way through a series of levels, collecting all cargo containers and returning them to your home base. As if controlling your own ship wasn't difficult enough, there are numerous enemies patrolling the cave system who seem intent on making your job hell.
Instead of making a straight remake, the author has created some brand new levels and mission types (e.g. escort missions, bombing runs), to add variety. There is also a limited version of the original game's 'single player race' mode (in which you attempt to set new time records for completing levels) and a simple 2-player dogfight mode.
Gravity Force is a fun PC remake of an underrated Amiga game of the same name, first released by Kingsoft in 1989. The game's looks and feel are similar to Scorched Earth: Your mission is to collect all cargo and return it safely to your home base. To complicate things, you must fight enemy ships and defy gravity that is constantly pulling you to the ground. To defend yourself, you have a cannon as well as 6 other weapons. The challenge in the game, though, lies in maneuvering your ship deftly, constantly battling gravity to avoid a collision course with cliffs and other barriers. This PC remakes tries to go beyond the original game by offering a wider variety of missions. In addition to cargo missions, you are also assigned to guard other ships, as well as fly search-and-destroy missions. This version unfortunately doesn't support network mode-check the semi-sequel Gravity Strike for that. The existing single-player missions and two-player modes are still a blast to play, though. Not as addictive as Scorched Earth by any means, but well worth a look for fans of simple and fun space games.
