Description

Gravity Ace is a 2D multi-directional gravity shooter (cave-flyer). It is a modernized retro arcade-style game inspired by classic 80s games like Thrust and Gravitar. You are The Pilot, a volunteer in the United Earth Navy, trained to fly behind enemy lines on daring, high-risk missions to sabotage the enemy and bring the war to a quick end. Pilots must master flying, shooting, and tractor beams in dangerous gravity wells to survive.
