Gravity Lab is a physics and electronics puzzle game that will keep you busy figuring out solutions and exploring an abandoned moon base.
I can’t remember how I stumbled upon Gravity Lab, but I’m glad I did! It’s not the type of game I would normally play, so it was definitely an eye-opening experience. The initial moments may be a bit overwhelming, but they are very much worth sticking around for.
I appreciate the smooth-paced tutorial – it’s simple and gets you started immediately on some of the early puzzles while allowing you to explore interactively afterwards. Plus, I am all about teaching through play! Gravity Lab is full of these moments whereby playing through the game you are also taught how to use your tools.
It’s so satisfying when you finally figure out a solution, but be careful what you wish for! Once I figured out how the game worked, it was difficult for me to stop playing. I would stay up way too late trying to figure out puzzles and beat my high scores… which were quickly reset once I had to go to work the next day.
I love that this game also has an integrated level editor and Workshop support for community-created levels. Those features, combined with the pure creativity of this game, make Gravity Lab something special worth checking out!
Overall, I would say Gravity Lab is a well-executed blend of puzzle-solving and construction set gameplay. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of either genre!
This art style strikes a nice balance between futuristic and rustic. The moon base still feels lived in, but also abandoned – something that makes the puzzles much more intriguing. I really enjoy the lighting effects too – they adjust enough glow to highlight important objects without being too distracting.
The sounds in Gravity Lab are used nicely to add mood and help create an experience rather than just be background noise. Everything from the familiar sci-fi hum of spaceship corridors to the creepy creaking when spinning the moon lab modules really brings this game together.
Controls are easy to use and the physics feel right. All of the mechanics seem to work well together and unlock at a nice pace. Each level has multiple solutions, along with targets that give you targets (and points!) for speed and accuracy. You can even change your own gravity — or redirect it toward objects to make them fly away!
The level editor is easy to use, with many options that can be unlocked as you play through the game. Having access to both Workshop support and Cloud Sync means you’re never out of puzzles – this game will keep you busy for a long time!
FINAL SCORE: 9/10
Overall, Gravity Lab is a great physics puzzle game. If you are a fan of either this sub-genre or construction sets, I would recommend checking out Gravity Lab!
