Gravity Block - a simple 2D flyer with gravity reversal at random intervals.

UPDATE 2: Added a rotating effect to the cube to give it some more personality, a few sounds, backing track, and screen flash effect as a warning for the gravity flip. Feedback is highly appreciated.

HOW TO PLAY:
- Fly as long as you can
- Avoid obstacles
- React to the gravity reversal(screen will flash before it actually changes)

CONTROLS:
- Click to jump up(when gravity is flipped, click to jump down.

ABOUT: This game was not meant to be a super polished game. It is merely the execution of an idea that is: Flappy Bird with gravity reversal at semi-random times. I love the feedback I'm getting, and I have taken some of that and put it directly into the game and it's a better game because of it - however I also want to keep it minimalist and simple so I can move on to my next project. Thanks for playing.

TOOLS USED:
I used Unity, along with 2 awesome packages from the asset store: PlayMaker(visual scripting), and 2DToolkit(great 2D addon that is PlayMaker compatible).

This thing is like flappy bird that automatically inverts itself at times.

An interesting concept, but utterly flawed.

Hi DarkFire, if you have any input on how to remove those flaws I'd love to hear them. Thanks.

Shows promise, but right now it feels like a broken unity demo, probably because it is. Adding sound, cleaning up sprites, and removing dev data displays would greatly improve this.

I really do appreciate the honest feedback. I rushed to get it online last night so I didn't even notice the debug stuff was left in. I'm definitely going back and tuning the game based on everyone's feedback. I just wanted to execute the concept, Flappy Bird with a gravity flip, and I want to complete that vision without spending TOO much time. So I'll try to find a good balance of minimalism and polish. Thanks again.

It's a nice game concept. But it doesn't have any sounds and you forgot to remove your debug GUI.

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. I'm definitely going to be adding some sounds and a backing track tonight after work.
