Gravity Guy is another great game from Miniclip. You control a boy who just escaped from prison and is fleeing from a pursuing guard. The only way to interact with your character is by tapping the screen, which causes him to jump and gravity to reverse. You hop back and forth, from floor to ceiling, completing levels that become progressively faster and more difficult. The game includes multiple single player game modes, as well as an un-enjoyable 4-player mode. Currently the game is listed at $3.99 in the Windows 8 Store.
Step 1: Complete Story Mode
Start Story Mode and complete both the Run and Rescue Chapters. Simple as you can die as much as you want.
Step 2: Endless Mode
Complete the four achievements related to this mode.
Step 3: Complete Story Mode Chapters without Dying
Complete Run and Rescue Chapters in one go (without dying).
Step 4: Mop-up
Complete any achievements you may have left. Once you master this game and finish Story Mode without dying, you will probably have all other achievements.
The concept of Gravity Guy is quite simple, but to master it is very difficult. The real challenging achievements in the game are completing each chapter of the Story Mode without dying. It will take many hours of practice and memorization to unlock them. Completing this game is not impossible, but considering less than 1% of players have done it according to True Achievements (for the identical Windows Phone version), it is definitely a hefty challenge.
MACRO INFORMATION: If you have a non-RT version of Windows 8, you can download a macro recording program that will make some of the achievements slightly less time consuming to complete. Using a macro recorder, you can record you mouse movements and clicks. The recording can be looped indefinitely while you are away from you computer. This method is really only helpful for the repetitive grinding achievements. To find a decent program for free, just Google "Jbit Macro Recorder." I wont go into too much detail on how to use the programs. They are fairly self-explanatory. Just hit the record button, perform the task you want to do, hit stop, then hit play. The program will do all the tedious work for you while you are sleeping or go to school or work.
COMPLETION ACHIEVEMENTS (2 for 40
The following 2 achievements are obtained just by completing all levels of Story Mode.
Amazing Run - 20
Finish Run Chapter.
Just complete all 30 checkpoints in the Run Chapter of Story Mode. You have unlimited retries.
Amazing Rescue - 20
Finish Rescue Chapter.
Just complete all 29 checkpoints in the Rescue Chapter of Story Mode. These levels were released as part of free DLC and are significantly more challenging than the Run Chapter. Just keep trying as you have unlimited retries.
NO DEATH ACHIEVEMENTS (5 for 55
The following 5 achievements are obtained by passing the required amount of checkpoints without dying.
Perfect Run - 20
Finish Run Chapter in one go.
See "Perfect Rescue."
Perfect Rescue - 15
Finish Rescue Chapter in one go.
These two achievements are the hardest in the game. They are what make the game a 9/10 difficulty. You must complete each chapter of Story Mode from start to finish without dying. There is no easy way to do these. You need to just keep playing the levels over and over again until you have them to some degree memorized. Feel free to use Practice Mode to practice Run Chapter, as in that mode there is no Chaser following you. There is no Practice Mode for Rescue Chapter, however.
3 checkpoints - 5
Pass 3 consecutive checkpoints without dying.
See "20 checkpoints hero."
10 checkpoints - 5
Pass 10 consecutive checkpoints without dying.
See "20 checkpoints hero."
20 checkpoints hero - 10
Pass 20 consecutive checkpoints without dying.
These achievements require you to pass a certain number of checkpoints without dying. These will unlock on the way to getting the "Perfect Run/Rescue" achievements. Passing 3 and 10 checkpoints without dying is fairly easy, but 20 is quite a bit more challenging. It is best to start at Level 1 as the levels just get more and more difficult as you progress. Unlike "Perfect Run" and "Perfect Rescue," these achievements can be earned in Practice Mode, which is slightly easier considering there is no Chaser.
An easy method to unlock these, once you have all other achievements, is to reinstall the game to get your three slow motions back (WARNING: You lose all progress). You should be able to unlock this if you use three consecutive slow motions after passing 10 checkpoints without dying, getting to 20 with ease.
