Excellent polish, aesthetically pleasing, overall a great game! :D Gamefeel was on point.

Hands down best entry I've played so far. Really enjoyed playing through the levels, felt like I was playing some sort of drug induced trip version of Hotline Miami (and I mean that as a great compliment). Great job!

Really good concept. The gameplay is well crafted with good pyshics and fun visual effect. Good job!

Is it me or is it inspired by Splatoon? Haha

This is probably my top game from the game jam. Just everything is done so well. Gameplay feel, aesthetic, polish, difficulty curve, and more! I love how you're even able to "parry" charging enemies and kill them that way! There's not an awful lot more to say because all in all this was a spectacular game to play.

So much juiceeee !

My only complaint is that we should have a way to see our range, to avoid mistake.

Great work! The game's mechanics are simple and easily understandable while aesthetics and juiciness really make the whole experience so satisfying :) Definitely need more of it!

Good job. Nicely polished and executed. Simple, yet hooking. Those big lobster things actually scared the hell out of me while I was playing. 5 for game feel and difficulty progression.

Terrific game!

The representation of the theme you guys made is astonishing. You need to have good aim and reflex to finish the game, and that's the main idea behind shooters. Giving that experience without shooting enemies is a great achievement.

On the aesthetic level, the game is superb. The particle effects, camera shaking, sound effects and music give this game a pleasant mood.

Wow really awesome game. So Juicy :)

I really like all the details, like the character, goes back a bit when launching the grappling hook, enemy are push and can explode other ones, the color splat when enemies die etc.

On the concept, my only negative would be that the game doesn't really feel like a top-down shooter are at least part of the shooter genre.

Thanks for playing!

I did feel I might have gone a bit too far from the original genre, but the example mark gives Snake pass, doesn't really feel like a platformer and introduces the new mechanic of bamboo poles to facilitate the snakes movement; I think the white circles in my game are the equivalent to the poles in Snake pass, I can make movement easy by giving the player all the grappling points they could want, and make them think in a different way when there isn't a direct path to the enemies. at least that's how I see it...

You have a point there. My original comment was nitpicking anyway. :)

Very nice looking and polished game. I like how interactive the environment is with itself, such as the biter enemies running each other into spikes.  5/5

Fun mechanic and a polished expierence! Only nitpick is that visibility of the player becomes really hard when there is a lot of particles on the floor.

Developer

I did try to fix that by putting a shadow behind the player, but I didn't have time to mess around with it, so it's not dark enough, and I'll probably add a shadow to the end of you're hook too, I'll see if that's better.

Amazingly polished, great and simple. Mechanics were introduced at a nice pace, and overall an amazingly enjoyable expirience

This feels really cool to play! I didn't get at first that you could use walls to move. Still, the main mechanic is efficient, and the game is challenging just as necessary! Also the visuals and sunds are fantastic. Congrats!

The presentation is good and the gameplay is incredibly fun!! My only complaint is that you could make the hitbox of the hook bigger (or make it snap to nearby objects). 

I don't think you intention was to make pixel perfect clicks judging by the enemy and level design, I see it as more of a click decision making, and when the plan is made, it shouldn't fail because I missed I tiny pixel on a fast moving foe.

Developer

Thanks for playing!

I think if I continue with this game I'll turn the hook from a raycast to a circle collider, and work on making the movement and aiming flow better.

Amazing concept, amazing art, and amazing execution! Loved how the game plays! Its so fun!
5/5!

Oh my god. So much fun really! The juice is oozing out and I cant have enough of it. I think many people go for a somewhat similar mechanic but your implementation is certainly the best one Ive seen in this jam. Well done!!
