3DOgaming Score: 4/5

3DOgaming Quick Review: Fun game to play, controls take a little getting used to as the movement is quick. The Atari Recharged series has brought new life in older games. Gravitar originally came out in the arcade in 1982 and released the following year on the Atari 2600 home console.

The game is not the easiest to play, as can be seen in my own gameplay on YouTube ( Gravitar Recharged’s difficulty does not take away from the enjoyment and only encourages further attempts at completing various challenges each world provides.

Description from Publisher: “A lone pilot, far from home, must navigate an abstract universe of uncharted planets and space stations guarded by mysterious, hostile aliens in Gravitar: Recharged. You must complete missions in each solar system, navigating a variety of challenging environments, each with varying levels of gravity that will test your skills as a pilot. Complete each mission within a solar system and you will be transported to the next through a massive black hole. Will you ever make it home?

The visual aesthetic of Gravitar: Recharged takes the Recharged series in a new direction, with expansive environments rendered in painterly style and pastel tones. In the capable hands of industry-veteran composer Megan McDuffee, the original soundtrack complements the art style with soothing, atmospheric tracks that evoke a sense of wonder.”
