In microgravity situations, there’s no real up or down. This game takes this detail and turns it into an escape mechanic. This retro-themed escape game is set in a space station, where up and down depends entirely on where you choose it to be. Change gravity to help our intrepid robot escape 15 challenging rooms.
Left click or tap to change the direction of gravity’s pull – up or down.
Avoid spikes, bullets and other enemies which appear in later rounds.
Get to the end of the level & see if you can make it through all 15.

There are 15 levels in this game.
The game begins in the level selection screen. Choose a level to begin.
Levels are unlocked in sequence.
At the start, only the first level is selectable.
The game’s first 3 levels act the game’s tutorial.
You can replay any of the levels you unlocked by selecting them from the level select menu.
Your character automatically moves in a horizontal direction.
It can only walk in horizontal surfaces.
The robot changes direction each time it hits a vertical surface.
To switch between surfaces, left click or tap anywhere on the screen.
If you hit a hazard, you die and start from the beginning of the current level.
Spikes are stationary hazards. They remain in place all throughout the game.
They can be avoided by a consistent switch at the right time.
Avoiding the spikes is quite tricky if they stand in the way of a jump.
Bullets are animated and timed.
These are fired from turrets. The turret itself won’t harm your character when it walks on it.
It takes much longer to synchronize movements with bullets.
You must switch planes not only at the right place but also the right time.
Pay attention to when your character moves and when the turret fires.
The best times to jump is when the bullet has already been fired and isn’t going to hit the robot as it goes up.
Some levels involve rather literal cases of trying to outrun a bullet.
Worms are also a mobile hazard. They walk in a straight line, back and forth.
They are slower than your player character.
The best way to avoid them is to go in front of them or trail behind them.
Time your movement so the worms never reach you.
These are similar to fixed spikes, except they periodically move up or down and stay in place for a while before repeating their movement cycle.
Trial and error is a key component of this game.
Be patient, especially in the later levels, until you learn the right timing.
Pay close attention to your windows of opportunity. in many situations, you’ve got to switch planes fast.
Left click or tap fast to accomplish tricky maneuvers.
Avoid clicking too much. One wrong move can send your robot to a spike or a bullet.
Break levels into discrete chunks.
If you switch polarity right as you bump into a wall you may end up moving in the wrong direction and dying.
Certain portions of the level require you to make many complex maneuvers in a row.
In some places you can let your character walk back and forth without encountering risk. It can be helpful to break larger & more complex levels into discrete chunks and wait at the safe spots so you are focused on each section in isolation.
