Gravitee is a futuristic golf game set in the deep reaches of space. Players must use the force of gravity to their advantage to bend the golf ball around the different planets that stand between them and the goal. Players must also be careful not to shoot too hard or the ball will go sailing out into space, landing out of bounds or on a distant planet. Understanding the game’s physics can help players plan their shots, but a helpful hint arrow allows the players to see the gravitational effects that different planets exert on the ball. Gravitee is a puzzle game that contains no offensive content, but ramps up quickly in difficulty. Later levels will present a challenge that will appeal to both older and younger audiences, making this game suitable for players aged 7 and up.

This Game is Good for Kids Who Need Help With:

Self-Control:

Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.

Gravitee can be very frustrating if players do not think about their choices before and after making them. Each hole can be completed in a single shot and often the best shot is not the one that is most apparent. To minimize frustration, players must “look before they leap” and consider all of their options before making a shot. If players fail to carefully consider their shots before taking them, they may find themselves getting scores of five or six instead of one or two. (Lower golf scores are better.) It may take many attempts before the player masters their shot, so it is important for them to not get discouraged and stick with it until they do.

Planning:

Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.

The goal of Gravitee is to hit the ball through the hoop in as few shots as possible. The early holes can be cleared with little effort, and are meant to train players in the basics of gameplay. Later holes feature more varied challenges, like multiple heavy planets with strong gravitational pulls and stars that incinerate any balls that touch their surface. Players must learn to use the layout of each hole to their advantage in order to get a low score and a better medal ranking. By looking ahead and predicting how their shot will be effected by all the elements of the course, players can plan better shots and earn a higher score.
