No Gravity- READ THIS before purchasing this game ! Important !
If you own a playstation Portable you will know that they've introduced games from independent small developers that for the most part are really great and cheap games. Some of these developers are now porting their mini's to the Android OS. One of these game, which was released yesterday, is called No gravity. Its actually a GREAT game that I own on my PSP. Unfortunately on Android the game simply doesnt work. There is no trial so I emailed the developer about the fact that it needs a trial version and asked if it worked on the Droid X and Xoom. The developer responded and said absolutely it would. Well guess what it doesn't. On the Droid X all you get is a black screen of death. You can't do ANYTHING on it. With the Xoom, the game loads in full screen but the resolution is way off so selecting menu items is difficult and then when you go to play all the controls are in a tiny portion of the upper left of the screen. I now can't even get a refund.
I've emailed the developer a nasty gram and I have given the game a bad rating. Hopefully the dev will work with me to get this game working properly because it actually is a great and fun 3D space shooter with a variety of missions and gameplay. But for now do NOT buy this game. I will update as I get more info.

Since there is no free trial I would like to know if this game runs on the Droid X and the Xoom tablet?
There is no trial at this time, but if we have more demand, we will produce a demo version.
More gameplay footage will come this week end.
According the specs: Droid X has PowerVR SGX, Android 2.2 and 800x480, so yes it will works.
Xoom has Tegra 2, 1280x800 and we are supported 640x4800 with double scaling and Tegra 2 textures. So it should work are well.
Only Android phones with Adreno GPU are not supported (due to space limitation on Android Market).
Great. I actually own No Gravity on the Psp so I will give it a whirl on my droid x. Thanks for the replies.
Hi Just letting you. Know it doesn't work properly on the Motorola Xoom Tablet. Some aspects. Are good while others aren't. For instance all the controls appear in the upper left corner of the screen. There's no way to play the game thatway. In the options menu the resolution id way off so you cab select one item but another option you aren't clicking on will light up. I can take pictures if it would help? I would like to recommend this game to the Xoom community when it actually works. Its downloading now on my droid x so I will let you know how that goes.
It doesn't work at all on the Droid X. All you get is a black screen and can't do anything. You can hear music and when you touch the screen you hear clicking but the screen is black and that's it. This is why I emailed you. You need to put up a trial version. So now I've paid for a game that you said should work on my devices but doesn't and I cannot get a refund. I would like to see this game work. Lets work together to get this game working.
No trial and will only add one if there is a demand? Sounds like they have it backwards. How about put a free and paid version and if there is demand they can add more stuff to the paid version and maybe add another buck to the price?
Thanks for the heads up on this.
I spent all day, and when I say all day, I really mean all day, going back and forth with this developer. They are trying to fix it but its simply not happening. First they don't even have a device that has multitouch so thats why the multitouch is just broken. They almost got the graphics right on the xoom but on the Droid X the game wont even load. They say it has something to do with open GL. Aparently they ported their IOS ported version and hoped it would work just fine.. I told them unless the game sprouts magical unicorns it aint happening lol. But they ARE trying.. I will let you guys know when its worked out.. the reason I am sticking with this is because it IS a good game and it actually looks beautiful on the Xoom... Can I upload pics on here I have some playing with the xoom while I was testing updated versions.
Update- the developer just ordered a Nexus S to develop on and they are trying to find another developer with a Xoom to help get the full xoom version fixed.

Re: No Gravity for Xoom
A update 1.0.5 has been pushed on the Android Market
- Tested on Xoom Tablet and Nexus S (will works on Droid X, previous version were not).
- 1280x800 display, and Android 3.0 is now supported.
- Fixed issue with accelerometer and largely improved multitouch
- Fixed audio issues and more
The No Gravity development team.
That was a fast fix. Must of had the Nexus S overnighted. Will give this a shot.
This game is still not working. During game play the left thumb controller slips half way off the screen making the game unplayable.
it works on the Droid X.. I haven't had it on the xoom yet. If you own a Droid X it works ! Let me get it on the xoom and I'll message them..
Also turning the ship was very slow. But then the left control leaving the screen was too much for me.
