Gravity has a nice, relaxed pace. At first, the challenges are addictive; engaging you to the next level. Until that next level is exactly the same as the previous, only harder (or longer to setup). For me the game turned tedious and dull. You get the same blocks to work with, you don't get to experiment with gravity in other ways, and there's no new obstacles to work with. The party mode games are tacked on to alleviate this tedium, but it's a Boom Blox duplicate -- and not as much fun. Like Wii Music, Gravity should have been a cheap WiiWare game. It's nothing special.
I am at level 55 of 100 without using any hints so far. I plan to finish them all. I play for about an hour once every few days. I am an engineer and even I get bored. It's a lot better than most of the dumb downloadable schlock from the Wii website IF you enjoy mechanical puzzles. A good $10 game.
This is a pretty cool game once you get the hang of it.
Eacj board is a puzzle with a ball at the beginning and a red button at the end. The goal is to hit the button. You can either use the extra game pieces you are given to help get the ball over to the button, or set up some sort of chain reaction so that one of the game pieces will hit the button when the ball starts rolling.
Some puzzles will strain your brain, others are nice and easy. It's fun either way.
