Polarity is a 2D platform/puzzle game based on magnetism. The goal of the game is to navigate environments and solve puzzles by using your suit's magnetic properties in interesting ways. You can attract to and repel from objects, instantly switch magnetic polarity, or even boost the strength of your magnetic field for added abilities.

To succeed, a combination of thinking and reflexes are necessary. The focus of the game is a mix of puzzle and platforming segments, but there is no combat. The only obstacles are electrically charged surfaces, although checkpoints are very liberal, and the player never really has to repeat content.

The game was developed to be played with the Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller for Windows, but it also supports keyboard controls as well as most other types of PC gamepads.
