Gravitrix (Commodore 64)
Robot Riot Games 2014-15
An updated rework of an unreleased game that Nils Hammerich originally completed over 20 years ago, GRAVITRIX brings arcade-style, mind-bending puzzle-action to your Commodore 64 like never seen before!
Combine stones of four different gravity directions to solve each of the 120 levels across six themed worlds, but be wary of colour changers, conveyor belts, teleporters and other hazards!
To complete each level, you must clear the screen of all of the coloured GRAVITRIX stones. ALL of the stones of EACH colour must be connected in a single 'group' in order for them to vanish, ie. you cannot have multiple, unconnected groups of the same colour in different areas of the screen. The big challenge in GRAVITRIX is that the stones don't just have different colours - they have different 'directions' (or gravity) as well!
Each coloured stone 'falls' in its assigned direction (symbolised by an arrow) whenever there is nothing blocking its path, and this leads to some tricky chain reactions that must be solved. To make your life even harder there is also a time limit, environmental blocks and other gameplay elements that are introduced during the early levels.

GRAVITRIX is presented in a modified plastic Universal Game Case complete with custom made foam insert (as with the rest of our deluxe range). The cover art was designed by Peter Wood and the game comes complete with a 12-page professionally printed manual, GRAVITRIX, RGCD and Robot Riot vinyl stickers, two A5 code sheets and a 170gsm matt-coated A3 poster. The 512KB PCB is housed in transparent blue cartridge shell, internally illuminated by an LED.
GRAVITRIX is also available as A FREE 10-level demo or to buy here as a downloadable .CRT image to use via emulation or on real hardware devices such as the Ultimate 1541-II. Purchases of the cartridge include the downloadable version of the game for free.
Please note that Pystronik Software are also selling the game on premium/budget disk over at their Binary Zone Retro Store priced at £4.99/£12.99 (plus shipping).
