A quirky, detailed puzzle game, Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity for Nintendo Wii packs all the fun of real, scientific experimentation without requiring you to sit through any boring intro-class lectures. You'll arrange objects, take advantage of common gravitational effects, and learn from the unexpected as you tackle a new endeavor on each level.



Conquer 100 unique, puzzling levels. View larger.



Professor Heinz Wolff is a charismatic scientist and a popular star from the BBC's Great Egg Race.

100 Thought-Provoking Levels of Real Physics
Featuring the renowned German-British scientist often associated with the BBC's Great Egg Race, Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity offers 100 increasingly difficult levels capable of providing challenges for puzzlers of all ages. Your big objective? Put chain reactions and simple structures to work for you as you try to press the button on each level. You'll find yourself rolling balls, stacking bricks, and trying to transport glassy eyeballs across the screen on funky wheeled carts. Of course, the biggest factor is gauging the effects of the real, accurate physics behind every movement.

Designed to Keep Puzzlers of All Abilities Busy
The fact that players can test and retest different configurations makes this game a great introduction to problem-solving for young scientists. But seasoned experimenters are likely to enjoy it too, since they'll quickly get caught up in trying to solve each problem in record time or with the quirkiest series of events.

Whatever level player you are, if you get stuck, the game offers you access to a bank of points that can be used to "buy" in-game hints from the professor and jump-start your thought process. And, just like real-world problems, the challenges in this game can often be overcome in a variety of ways, allowing for creative solutions to all kinds of conundrums.

Unique Backdrops, Experimental Sandboxes, and Head-to-Head Intellectual Combat
This game also offers 20 unique sandboxes that allow for experimental play and let you hone your deductive skills while creating crazy reactions. And it includes four mini-games that provide an arena for staging matches against friends, parents, siblings, and classroom rivals for bragging rights and real-time tests of your reasoning ability. Additionally, hand-painted background art in bright colors adds a fun, slightly whimsical feel to each screen, while atmospheric music helps ensure that you stay immersed in the professor's physics-rich puzzle-solving world.




Each scene presents a new challenge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light years BEHIND The Incredible Machine April 14, 2009
By Lance
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I've seen this game compared to The Incredible Machine[...] from years ago... although similar, it's not nearly as much fun as the old Incredible Machine games.

The Incredible Machine contained a wide variety of parts for solving the puzzles... balls, balloons, lights, dynamite sticks, fans, etc. So far, Gravity (we're at puzzle 30 or so), only provides a few items (balls and beams) to solve the puzzles. Sure, maybe it's more realistic (using gravity as the only force), but not nearly as fun.

Having said that, it is still quite addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game May 20, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just got this today from GameStop...and have been playing it for the last hour or two while my kid sleeps....VERY addictive! I am on level 33 out of 100 and while they haven't been the hardest puzzles to figure out (I only got stuck on one so far, hoping they keep getting more difficult as the game progresses), the game is a LOT of fun to play. The simulated gravity in the game is VERY realistic. Definitely recommend, the backgrounds and feel of the game are really cool too. I really like how there are multiple solutions to most of the puzzles, not just one answer, and how you can keep testing your placement of items while you are solving the puzzle. Definitely get this if you like thinking and physics, it's a great game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Strangely Addictive Game August 28, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fun and also strangely addictive. You are given a few beams, some balls and occasionally some strange carts, to build something which will guide a ball to hit a button. The only force you have is gravity though, so you have to really think about how to accomplish the task with the tools provided. It becomes very addictive as you work your way through the puzzles. It is a nice break from violent, in-your-face games and requires only your knowledge of how gravity works. (The box mentions knowledge of physics several times, but don't let that scare you away - it's not like re-visiting your high-school physics class.) The soundtrack is quite repetitive (I would recommend putting it on mute). Finally, if you are looking for a flashy, high action game, this one is not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive fun January 10, 2010
By Frank
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is similar to a PC game called Crazy Machines that I've enjoyed. Other reviewers have noted that this may have been better as a PC game, assuming that you'd have better control with the mouse than the Wii remote, but I disagree. Control via the remote is fine, and it's a much nicer experience playing the game on the sofa in front of the big TV instead of hunched over the PC.

We got the game for Christmas, and I was the first to finish, so about 2 weeks to solve the 100 levels. Your mileage may vary, but I thought I got my money's worth out of it. The puzzles are cleverly designed and often require innovative solutions. There are often several ways to solve a puzzle - I've watched my daughter solve them in completely different ways than I had.

Small minuses are that there's no way to see the "intended" solution. I struggled through several puzzles wondering what the designers had in mind - it would have been neat to see if my approach was the same as theirs. And there's a limited number of "hints" your allowed - you really need to budget them carefully because there's no way to get more. And yes, the puzzles do get harder toward the end.

The included "party mode" was a nice bonus. It's rather optimistically named, I think - if this is the centerpiece of your party, you've got trouble. But there are some small, easy to play games that are quite addictive. Our favorite is where you have a cannon shooting small balls at a castle made of blocks. Object is to completely level the castle in as few shots as possible. (6 is the record so far).

Fun for the whole family, as they say, though probably too tough for kids under 10 to solve without help.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want more! August 20, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I thought this game was great. We compare all puzzle type games and even some others to Gravity now. Some of the puzzles are easy and some will really make you think. I would buy gravity 2 in a heartbeat. I just hope the next one is 200 levels instead of 100.

4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Thinking Game December 25, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is not a time limited game, you have the luxury to take your time and think before trying; the party games do have time windows. Moving through the 100 puzzles is very straight forward, but the answers are not. What is very nice is that there can be more than one way to solve the puzzle. It takes a lot of discipline to not just hit the hint button when getting stumped, however through patience and thinking the answers can be found. The fact that the hint buttons have a cost that you must budget against keeps one from hitting the button for no reason. I would have liked if some of the party games had more options, such as longer durations or the ability to play head to head. Still very fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family Fun July 23, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My brother and I gave this to our parents for Christmas and it has been a hit with the family. My mother, who had never before played with a wii and is usually skeptical about gaming had tons of fun and even beat my father at some of the party game rounds. The standard gameplay is good for cooperative puzzle-solving too.

Although I agree that it does not have some of the fun features of the old Incredible Machine game, it is a little truer to life and having fewer options with which to solve the puzzles really makes one focus on being creative with just the pieces offered.

Overall, it made a family of nerds quite happy and we still haven't beaten the game.
