''The Adventures of Rad Gravity'' is a PlatformGame released in December of 1990 for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem. It was developed by Creator/InterplayEntertainment and published by Creator/{{Activision}}. The player controls the eponymous space adventurer as he goes through numerous planets on his mission to reactivate the eight missing [[WetwareCPU Compuminds]] that were shut down and hidden by the game's BigBad, Agathos. He is guided by the only one left, Kakos, who is his ship's computer during the game. Along the way, he picks up various power-ups and [[HeartContainer Energy Units]] that make life easier...[[PowerUpLetdown usually]].

** The guys who steal Kakos and take him to Effluvia are pretty clearly Cheech & Chong.

Added DiffLines:

* EleventhHourSuperpower: The strongest armor in the game, the White Armor, is found very near the door to the final boss on Telos. That is, if you actually manage to find it.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: As brutal as the game can be, it has a few of these. Passwords, numerous health and armor upgrades (though roughly half of the health upgrades and the final armor upgrade are in [[GuideDangIt very hard to find locations]]), unlimited continues, and a checkpoint for each of the two final bosses (''very'' useful given how long and difficult Telos is).



* GuideDangIt: Oh. So. Much. Sometimes the game tells you what to do, other times it should be relatively simple if you do some exploration. However, with fake walls/floors, unusual boss battles, hidden rooms, obscure ways to advance, and [[MagicalMysteryDoors a maze of identical doors, the wrong one of which will send you back to the beginning of the room or level]], a guide is the only thing standing between you and insanity.

Good luck finding every item in the game as well.


Added DiffLines:

* IncrediblyLamePun: Turvia's gimmick is being upside down, aka Topsy Turvy.


Added DiffLines:

** The first gun upgrade actually winds up being this in a way, as the ability to shoot below you actually overrides your ability to duck and shoot.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: The two guys who steal Kakos and take him to Effluvia are pretty clearly Cheech & Chong, including their ice cream truck from ''Nice Dreams.''

* LostForever: There are some power-ups on Effluvia.[[note]](Don't worry, though; the only real powerup is optional and is an upgrade to the melee weapon, which became useless after the first level. You're going to regret missing those Energy Units, though.)[[/note]]
* MisguidedMissile: Used to defeat [[spoiler: Kakos]].
