Instructions in project.

Here's Gravitate, the pinnacle of all the work I've put in throughout the first four rounds of the contest! I hope you find this to be a fitting ending!

In this platformer, you will have to become adept at puzzle-solving and quick switches of mental perspective as you change the gravity. Many of the levels are intentionally designed to be ragey, but I can assure you that all of them are perfectly possible.

A quick note on the controls:
When you run and jump, you move relative to the direction of your gravity. For example, if your gravity is upwards, pressing right will move you left, and vice versa. If your gravity is to the right, pressing right will move you up the wall and pressing left will move you down it.

Notes and Credits

Huge thanks to @Will_Wam for creating the contest and giving me the motivation to actually finish this platformer, and for letting me go a week over the due date to finish it when I was super busy. I also want to give a shoutout to the other scratchers in the contest: many of them have entries just as good or better than mine! Without you guys, this contest wouldn't be the same. Thank you all!

Everything except for the music was created by me.
