    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Low G Man is a platforming game set in the future. The main character, Kal, can jump unusually high relative to most platformers at the time of release. Low G Man was known for having very poor controls and animations. There was also a power up system which often punished the player for picking up power ups instead of rewarding them. Kal finds himself the only person strong enough to save the hostages from a robot uprising.
