NO GRAVITY [TOUCHPAD] – REVIEW (76%)

10 Nov

No Gravity is a space combat game and is released by Real Tech VR.

“Are you brave enough to play No Gravity? You’ll need steady nerves and a strong heart to fly around dangerous obstacles, face hostile environments and use deadly weapons to accomplish your missions and protect your people.”

The game is basically your all out mission based space combat game.

The game gives you a bit of a tutorial having you first doing things like clearing asteroids (combat with something not moving and shooting), then moving onto moving targets and then active combat. You have a selection of ships which can effect the game a little.

The game follows a story line and in the campaign you will need to complete a few missions to move onto the next stage of the story.

The missions are generally simple ones like protect the fleet (destroy 10 fighters) which the game tracks as you wipe them out, and then you will move onto the next mission, sometimes going to a nav point to get somewhere slightly different.

The game is controlled either by the tilt controls or with a virtual joystick, a fire button and varies buttons that become active as needed.

The sound and presentation are very good, however having a lot of red in the space backgrounds and then making the enemy targets highlight in red was a bad decision.

You can tell this game has been ported directly from the iOS version as the images of iPhone are used when selecting your control method.

On the upside:

  • The story line is large and will take some time to complete, with a large galaxy to explore.
  • The side missions allow you to really 
  • Combat combat is well done, with the battles been small ships very satisfying.

On the downside:

  • Very combat based.
  • Red Targets and a red background, not good.
  • Distances between the objects and you are deceptive, with something that seems a little way off hitting you.

Overall, this is a very good space shooter, but I felt that with a few tweaks it could have been improved. I would have really liked to something more than straight space combat, this is no “Galaxy on Fire”. The space combat played well enough, by the distance and colour issues just made it feel a tiny bit unpolished. I hope this game receives an update to help with these. If you like your space combat it is worth checking out, as the Touchpad has very few of these titles at the moment.
