By Melissa Platero, CCNN Writer

Gravity Falls
Do you have what it takes to handle the madness?

Disney’s Gravity Falls show follows the bizarre adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel, as they solve supernatural mysteries in the fictional town of Gravity Falls, Oregon. Now, you can get in on the action with the Gravity Falls Mystery Shack Attack app, which features amazing graphics, creepy cool sounds, and suspenseful gameplay.

Join Dipper, Mabel, and their Gruncle Stan to save Gravity Falls, as the villainous Lil Gideon unleashes scary creatures on the town. With some quick thinking, problem solving savvy, and intelligent organizational skills, you’ll set traps, use weapons, and adapt to the swarms of monsters that each level sends your way. The game follows a typical “tower defense” style of play, which sees you strategically surrounding different locations in Gravity Falls with protective contraptions. Of course, once the chaos gets intense, you’ll have to make some changes on the fly before you get overwhelmed!

The game costs only $2.99, and gives you great value for your buck. The look and feel of the app totally immerses you in the world, and if you’re a fan of the show Gravity Falls, this is as close as you can get to jumping right into the cartoon. The fast-paced action will twist your mind into knots, forcing you to both plan ahead carefully and make split-second decisions. Although there’s a bit of a learning curve, the challenge is satisfying, and saving Gravity Falls from hordes of creatures is just plain awesome. Our final verdict? We give this app an “A+”.
