You might remember that Gravitronix was one of the first WiiWare games announced all the way back in October of 2007. We even conducted an interview with Medaverse a few months later regarding the game.
Well we've got good news. (Of course any news after almost two years is good) Medaverse has informed us that they are currently pinning down a date for the game's release on the WiiWare service and are finally releasing the gameplay trailer of the game in action.
Gravitronix is an action/battle game in which players play as a “Gravity Platform” on the circumference of a circular arena. The object of the game is to defend your territory on the arena while assaulting enemy territories using only your wits, the projectiles that spawn in the arena and the two powerful beams of your Gravity Platform.
Each territory is lined with a wall of shield pieces when the game begins. Each shield piece will take three hits before being destroyed. If a projectile exits the arena through a territory, the territory and the players in it are defeated. The last territory standing is the winner.
Players can play with either the Wii Remote™ or Nunchuk™ controller. Twist your controller to move your Gravity Platform within your territory. Press the A or C button to push projectiles away and the B or Z button to capture projectiles and take aim at your opponents. Each of the four projectiles has different properties, such as arcing 90 degrees when fired from capture or creating a huge explosion when charged with energy.
Gravitronix is easy to learn but a challenge to master, and is designed to appeal to gamers of all levels. From players picking up a controller for the first time to veteran gamers who live for intense, heated battles with their friends, Gravitronix offers something for everyone.
You can check out the official gameplay trailer below for a taste of what you can expect from the game and we'll let you know the exact release date as soon as we get it.
And of course we'll also have a full review of the game as soon as it hits the WiiWare service.
