Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day for 6/7/2012: Gravity Guy has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Gravity Guy.

Gravity Guy is priced at $1.53 in Google Play; it is normally priced at $0.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Gravity Guy is described as follows:
See You on the Flip Side

In a world where gravity laws were broken, one brave individual is held captive for defying the rules. Not happy, he decides to escape, being the first one to run for his life. Flipping gravity at will, he became known as the Gravity Guy.

Being chased by Gravity troops, Gravity Guy can't stop, he has to keep running and it's your job to guide him through an impossible world of mazes, flipping gravity when needed. This fast-paced adventure features 30 challenging levels, three different worlds, and guarantees you many long hours of fun. Compete in all three game modes (Story, Practice, and Endless) and against up to four players.

PLEASE NOTE: This app lets you purchase digital content using actual money. You can configure parental controls for in-app purchases, which will require your Amazon account password or a 4-digit PIN, by tapping the Menu icon and then Settings.
Gravity Guy is rated at 4.5 stars in Google Play. It is rated at 3.7 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Normally spoof ratings skew things on the Amazon Appstore, but with 79 ratings in that marketplace, there's less effect this time. The 4.5 star rating in Google Play comes with 170 ratings; there is also a free version with more than 4,500 ratings and the same 4.5 star rating.

Many of the lower ratings in the Amazon Appstore address the in-app purchases. Still, we'd give this a "buy" (while it's free) nod.

There is also an iOS version of Gravity Guy in the App Store. It is priced at $0.99 and has the same in-app purchase requirements.
