Each re-play of this clever puzzle and skill-based game provides a fun new test of your analytical thinking and problem-solving skills, visual awareness, reaction speed, coordination and keyboard control, and more. Good-old trial and error is important here too – Learning from your mistakes is the best way to figure out the correct solution in each new situation. Do you have the ability and drive to think outside the box to complete all levels?
To find success, learn to think outside the box, and try and try again with endless enthusiasm! Play Down Is Up, a cool and artistic, platform-based, brain teaser puzzle game where you must guide a small acrobatic character to a rotating, black ‘Exit Block’ in each level. Unfortunately for your character, the Exit Block is often in hard-to-reach locations, and the natural effect of gravity must often be ignored in order for you to progress in many of the really challenging levels.
This fun and interesting, gravity-control game requires very good analytical thinking, strategy skills and patience as you review the problem and environment, and then attempt to plot your route through each maze-like level. Enjoy the classic, problem-solving platform action!

Beginning with just a swinging branch and a few leaves as wings, you must carefully collect bananas to exchange them for new inventions, and transform Monty’s launching capabilities from nada to NASA-esque!

With the push of a button on your keyboard, you can completely flip the state of gravity at any stage so that your runner somersaults into the air, and runs ‘on the ceiling’ of the obstacle course. As you progress, you have to quickly and continuously flip between normal gravity and ‘reversed’ gravity in order to ensure a safe passage for your free-running daredevil.
