Gravity Lab! by Mobile Snap

*Update* Out now: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gravity-lab!/id427760902?mt=8

We originally posted here in July 2011, when we first launched "Gravity Lab!" and we wanted to thank everyone here at Touch Arcade for the continued support.

And now we are happy to announce we will be releasing our major (and first) Update for Gravity Lab! We added many more levels, Challenge Levels, a Bonus Mini game, character customization, and more!

Even though it was already released nearly 3 years ago, we have prepared a major update, so it is more like a re-launch (V2). And Gravity Lab! will now be a free title. We already passed Apple, and will be launching by the end of this month.

We look forward to your comments! (we will see about giving away some promo codes before release!)

Here is the launch Trailer:

Great game!

This game was awesome when I played it a few years back and I'm happy to see it's back with new stuff. The puzzles and levels are really fun and the graphics are pretty amazing!

Cool concept!

When will this be released?

Looking forward to playing it!

Hmmm ok looks good but I have some questions..

Will wifi be a required thing?
Free game for a day or forever?
If it's a freemium are IAPs needed to get further in game ?
Ios version 6 and up or other?
Device requirements?

What was your best moment when designing and making this game?
What inspired you to go free instead of paid?

Sounds cool, but I hope I'm not the only one who thinks this sounds a bit worrying

'Store: earn coins while playing to buy costume pieces to change your look and increase lives for “Robot Blast” '

Why go F2P? Poor sales?
What kind of IAP will there be?

Thank you for your support, and for your questions!

Gravity Lab is completely free with no major pay walls at all. Here are answers to some of your questions:

-We are 95% sure we will release this on May 28th, but we will keep you updated here if anything changes!
-Wifi is not 100% required to play, but after a certain time (after playing 10 levels) we do ask you to connect if you are not as we do display minimal interstitial ads (it helps us keep it free). Any purchase will remove the ads and any need to be on Wifi. We are going to change it so you can get through Lab 1 without any interruptions about being on Wifi.
-Our plans are to keep it Free forever
-IAP's are not required to get further in the game. Everything is unlockable from playing the game normally. You can play all 200+ levels absolutely free. And there are also no restrictions on how long you can play. If you want to get ahead to later levels, you can pay, but it is not necessary.
-iOS 6.0+ required.
-As for switching from a F2P game, having a paid game is a barrier to players. So we wanted to get as many people playing and enjoying this game. F2P is new to us, and we listen to players. So if something just isn't right, we will change it.
-Types of IAP are mainly to buy coins to customize your character, or to get more coins to continue in the bonus runs.
-Robot Blast is a brand new bonus game, and if you want to get a higher score, or try to beat it, you can customize your character, but it is not necessary at all, and should not be worrying. The mini game is something new for us, and we hope everyone will enjoy it when they aren't playing the regular levels
-As for our best moment in designing the game, we tested a lot of new elements for the new Lab (Lab 4). And once we tested the cannons, we knew it was fun, but then when we threw the rockets in the mix it opened up a lot of new possibilities. And these elements are what inspired us for the bonus game.

We will also be giving away some promo codes so some of you get the chance to play just before it releases!

OK some quick first impressions
The game is awesome! the sounds, the character, and the challenges I've encountered so far are top notch. I only just scratched the surface but after 8 levels I'm already impressed.OK I got to go to sleep but thumbs up so far
