Developer null2 has announced that astrophysics-driven puzzle game AGRAV: Inertial Orbit will be launching today on iOS devices.
In the emptiness of vector space, astral beings known as Gravmites are trapped within the void — along with the player’s ship — and helping them escape is the only way out.
An astrophysics-driven puzzle game, AGRAV: Inertial Orbit is packed with 90 intense geometric physics-based puzzles that are fully rendered with sharp-looking 2.5D vector graphics. Players will need to navigate around geometric barriers, activate switches, and avoid cosmic hazards with their own gravitational fields (like neutron stars) to reach the next level. The puzzles may seem complex, but AGRAV’s intuitive controls will allow players to slingshot around obstacles in no time at all.
Leo Minutillo, CEO of null2:
“Playing with advanced astrophysics as a core game mechanic while working on AGRAV: Inertial Orbit has been one of the high points of my career as a developer. Just getting from Point A to Point B is quite the challenge . . . not to mention avoiding the pull of neutron stars! If you wish that vector graphics never went out of fashion, prepare yourself for a mind-bending experience.”
