Playing Gravity

Type your answers as the asteroids fall. Each right answer gets you one step closer to leveling up. As you pass levels, the force of gravity increases and the asteroids start to fall faster for added challenge.

Setting up your game

Click on the Gravity icon, then click on the Get Started button to configure your game settings. The level of difficult you pick determines how quickly your terms or definitions fall. On Easy, your terms will always fall slowly. If you choose Medium they'll start slowly and increase in speed. Should you choose hard, they'll start falling quickly. When everything is set up the way you want it, click on Let's go to take off!


Playing the game

To get points for an answer, you have to type it in correctly before the asteroid falls past the answer text box at the bottom of the screen. If you're not sure of an answer, you can press the Escape key to skip it and Gravity will show it to you again later.


If you miss an answer, you'll be prompted to retype it before moving on. 


Advancing levels and ending the game

Every seven terms, you advance a level and move to a more massive planet where the force of gravity increases and asteroids fall faster. Terms or definitions you've missed will come back as red asteroids. If you get a red asteroid answer wrong, the game ends. Students if your teacher uses Class Progress to track your study activity, be sure to end your game so you get full credit. 


High scores

When you finish a game, you'll see where you place among your classmates on the leaderboard.
