When things didn't quite work out last time after The Flood, with this end of the world, the Gods have stopped the Earth, removed gravity and, to replace man, have created the "Buddies", who are independent of gravity.
But Flawkes, one of the last survivors, discovers the Buddies' secret: fun! This is why they don't need gravity. He then creates the curious element, F.U.N., and this generates gravity. So Flawkes sets out to provide the Buddies with as much fun as possible. As F.U.N. will still be turning when the world comes to an end, the seasons and gravity return, and the Gods realize that humanity is a force you just can't reckon with.
Flawkes is controled by the player in the 3rd person and provides the Buddies with lots of opportunities to have fun: they love a hefty kick up the behind, any kind of danger, music, car racing and breakneck trips in all sorts of vehicles.

I... don't even know where to start. This is a VERY bizarre game. The vehicle crafting reminds me quite a bit of Banjo and Kazooie: Nutz n Boltz. Overall it lacks some polish but makes up for it with crazy-ass charm and besides, what other game would let you kick freakish little naked midgets into the sky?

Cargo! The Quest for Gravity is an unique and innovative game that features 8 hours of story gameplay, and a lot of different levels (islands, underwater ares, flying islands, several interior locations).
Cargo! - The Quest For Gravity is, at its core, a rather good little game, but it's a game held back by its own compulsion to be ambiguous, not to mention the staggering lack of things to do outside of its enigmatic objectives and vehicle building.
I believe Cargo! is a game that everybody should play at least once, but at $14.99, I feel the price is a bit steep for the content on offer. If the price ever drops, then this is an instant must-have title. At its current price, only true connoisseurs of the demented will feel completely fulfilled by this compelling, fun, but ultimately shallow experience.
Gameplay is fun and I enjoyed it. The story is not that bad as well but it's too short and the graphics are more than solid.
At the end of the day, it's a solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value though, and could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.
