Airscape: The Fall of Gravity is an action platformer developed by a small group of students with a story unlike anything else you’ve played before. It follows the plight of an octopus, lost in a strange and dangerous world, whose friends have been abducted by a mysterious force. The objective of the game is to navigate your way past hordes of dangerous obstacles in various zones, and collect critters (blue orbs) to free your friends. The ultimate objective of these levels is simply to survive and reach the end, but as a bonus, if you collect enough critters, you can unlock bonus missions, whereupon completion you unlock a new octopus as a playable character. Each octopus has a different ability, ranging from hovering to being able to teleport short distances. Unlocking multiple octopi has benefits as it allows you to approach the level in several different ways; some levels are better suited to be undertaken by certain characters, and to this end there’s also a tactical edge to working out which particular skillset is best to tackle the level at hand."
