We start off the new year with the release of a new game coming to a classic console. Gravitic Mines is described as a thrust/physics/arcade/puzzle game that you will be able to play it only on the Atari Jaguar console.
Gravitic Mines has been in development since 2019, and after hard work from the indie developer studio known as Reboot, it is finally available for purchase. The game is being sold through the Atari Age store.
What’s the gameplay like? Well, as we mentioned in the opening paragraph, it’s a game based on physics and thrust power where you launch a ship solving puzzles, and find the best solution for each level. It’s considered as a love letter to classic games like Gravitar, Thrust, and Lunar Lander.
Here’s the launch trailer:
It has a $70 price, but it comes complete in box with manual included. It also has these following features:
- 6MB cartridge containing over 43MB of compressed data!
- Sixteen unique and lush worlds
- Multiple missions on each world
- Punishing boss fights!
- Thirteen music tracks, totaling 38 minutes of music
- Pilot profiles and online achievement tracking
- Online scoreboards
- Pro-Controller support

The Box art was created by artist William Thorup, who also made cover artwork and manuals for several Atari Jaguar games like Last Stride, reBOOTed, and Jeff Minter Classics. Here’s a video of how the box art was made:
