Well, I died...over and over and over. Hard to get a feel for the momentum to time t he hooks and releases correctly. I do like the minimalist geometry look it was just lacking some nice upbeat music to go with it or some fun voice sound effects for the hookshot or something like that :D. A suggestion  though...I could not see how this tides to the theme so maybe adding it to the description of the game might be helpful for folks like me who missed it ;)

Hey, right the game is a bit too hard. It was unfortunate that I didn't have enough time to create more levels to smooth out the difficulty curve. That way more people might enjoy the mechanic and get a feel for the physics as they are. Out of curiosity, which level did you get stuck at? 

I have actually explained the theme in the game's short description - the theme is "platformer with no jumping ability". 

I agree that sound and music would be really nice. In general, at least for me 48 hours was not enough to get the production value high enough.  

Thanks for taking the time to play it and comment!

This was quite fun but I would have preferred a bit more fluidity with the grappling controls. It was a bit too difficult to make it do what i wanted it to.

Interesting idea and a neat wireframe aesthetic.

Yeah, I agree that the physics need some tweaks.  Thanks for trying it out and for the review!
