It's an exploration based reflex heavy platformer where instead of jumping you reverse gravity. 
 
Example: instead of jumping over a pit of spikes you walk over them on the ceiling.

But...but...I bought and played it already!
 
Sure took it a while to get onto Steam. I wonder what the hold-up was. :O

#14 Posted by Lemoncookie01 (1667 posts) -

My computer can't handle steam.

#15 Posted by VirtuaXav (449 posts) -

Done and DONE.

#16 Posted by Tebbit (4449 posts) -

Brought it, then realised I thought It was another game. This doesn't detract from its awesome-osity! 

#17 Posted by SuperfluousMoniker (2907 posts) -

It's kinda funny how they're selling it at 10% off... Which amounts to a savings of fifty cents because it's cheap! And looks awesome! I'm totally going to buy this.

#18 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2129 posts) -
@LordXavierBritish: Thank you for the great news!  I shall be acquiring this soon for sure.
#19 Posted by Seedofpower (3925 posts) -

#20 Posted by Hostile (148 posts) -

1. It costs too much until right now
2. It wasn't on Steam
 
Purchased.

#21 Posted by sketch (194 posts) -

Bought it.

I'm now starting to wish I'd bought it sooner. That music is awesome

#22 Posted by fisk0 (3849 posts) -

Yeah, instant purchase, I've been wishing for a Steam release of this since Valve announced SteamPlay.

#23 Posted by Wes899 (2107 posts) -

I bought it originally, do I get bonus points?

Yeah, something wrong with my connection too, half of the time I try to open a web page I get time out errors and stuff, which was rather scary when I purchased the game as I got that at first too, it seems they only charged me once though, and I did get the games (purchased it along with Chime), and got them downloaded within seconds, so I'm happy anyway.

nope
 
I don't really think achievements would fit this game ... except for "don't die" there is nothing really you can "achieve" besides making it to the end :)
#30 Posted by MisterMouse (3540 posts) -
@DeF:  well you could have achievements like get all of he orbs, die 10000 times, find the crazy elephant, things like that.

There are no actual Steam achievements. But there are 'achievements' within the game itself with various things that can be unlocked by completing them.

#32 Edited by fisk0 (3849 posts) -

I managed to die 142 times on the first level. Isn't that achievement worthy?

I'm going to blame a bit of it on something about the game or my keyboard that makes the directional keys lock up occasionally, I think at least 30 or 40 of those death were because the guy kept walking right into spikes upon respawn because he was stuck walking in that direction for a few seconds. It was especially annoying on "Trench Warfare" where it could lock up right after a gravity shift, making the guy either walk off the moving platform right into the roof spikes, or walking right into the soldiers after landing on the ground.

#33 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

I watched @Hamst3r's let's play of it.. Does that count for playing it?

#34 Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror (2089 posts) -

I will get this sometime, masochistic games FTW!

#35 Posted by Raineko (433 posts) -

What is that?

#36 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

Well maybe I prefer WWWWWW's. Controversial LAD.

#37 Edited by Crocio (542 posts) -

It's DRM free off steam, but it's still quite popular on Steam. Funny.

#38 Posted by Tictocbehemoth (62 posts) -

Just bought it and I am now in love.

#39 Posted by Suicidal_SNiper (949 posts) -

50 cents off! Better hurry before this deal goes away!

#40 Posted by LiquidSaiyan3 (458 posts) -

Bought and beated. 
 
Just wish it had Steam Acheivements.

#41 Posted by Perrin (43 posts) -

I re-bought this. Was worth $15 is certainly worth the pittance it now costs and Steam is nice and convenient.

#42 Posted by Inf225 (503 posts) -

Awesome! Bought! $4.50 is a steal!

#43 Posted by Empirepaintball (1391 posts) -

It's a done deal
#44 Posted by Rothbart (347 posts) -

I didn't buy it cause I need to save all the money I can for my subscription... but it does look awesome, I hope that it'll come in a nice bundle around Christmas time!

#45 Posted by kalmis (1558 posts) -

Bought. Never heard of this before I saw the Steam sale. This is absolutely brilliant. Need to get hold of that soundtrack as well.

#46 Posted by enYallione (30 posts) -

I bought this too. Fun from what I've played so far. 
 
I remember thinking that this game should have been on steam when I saw the GiantBomb quicklook a while ago, finally it is!

#47 Posted by Jadeskye (4366 posts) -

Awesome!

#48 Posted by Sarkhan (1196 posts) -

To LordXavierBritish : there is a C64 port on the way!!! I know :O

That was exactly my thought train. 
 
It is a really well designed, difficult but fair, platformer. Also, kick-ass music and graphics, but it's probably easier to appreciate those features if you know what a C64 is. (Actually, see Game Room for reference of that era.) Some also quite funny video game-y in-jokes, as well.
