Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Gravity Runner, from We Are Colin.
We took an in-depth look at this game last month, but if you weren’t with us then, Gravity Runner has an incredibly simple concept: run, jump, and manipulate gravity in order to reach the end of each level. Your runner will forever run to the right automatically, and you control when he jumps or when gravity flips. Tap on him once to jump over gaps or spikes, tap again (while he is in the air) to switch gravity.
You’ll need to be precise in your movements, as your runner needs to be in the right location when you invert gravity so as to not fall into the spike pits that are now on the bottom of the screen instead of the top, or run into other obstacles.
Gravity Runner times your progress in each level, and at the end, takes your time and the number of deaths you suffered and uses them to give you a medal. You can actively work to earn better medals in each level as you play them, by collecting coins (placed in dangerous locations) that reduce the amount of time on the clock.
