A really good idea and well implemented. I felt that it really could have used some sound and I also kept releasing it only for it to turn a little back again. Really cool though. Good going.

Really novel concept! Haven't seen something like this before :)

Finished all the levels, but I found it really hard to get in a flow where I would just do one harpoon after the other. It was hard to tell what would be the final direction after you released the harpoon.

But really well executed for a Game Jam :)

I didn't hear any sound in the web-build, which is a shame, cause there's some excellent potential for Really Juicy Sounds in this game.

I love the core mechanic, and the shooting and swinging both feel really good. I will say that there is a bit of a bug where shooting the harpoon into things automatically pushes your car to be perpendicular to the point of contact -- I used this to get out of a couple jams, but it may not be exactly the physics experience that you want.

But other than that, this was a really fun game! Keep up the great work!

What super clever idea! Very well done!

I love the concept and I have fun finishing it. Sometimes controls are bit confusing, but huh, it's a game jam though! Neat game!

Submitted

Loved it, my only real complaint is that the car's angle is a bit misleading while harpooned. I kept releasing the harpoon thinking I was angled the way I wanted to be only for the car to turn a little bit before going straight again.

I really like the concept and the visuals are stunning, but the harpoon mechanic seems really buggy and only sometimes works as it should?

Submitted

Cool harpoon mechanic!

Submitted

Crazy idea, but it works! It was harder than I thought it would be, but still very enjoyable. When I realized that it sometimes makes sense to drive in reverse, the game became easier and more fun. A small criticism would be that the flat shading and missing shadows makes it hard to hit the boxes sometimes, but else great game :)

Who doesn't love a good grappling hook

Idea is great, definitely needs music and audio, that would help a ton!

This is a really fun and unique idea. I love that you can change the colour palette aswell it's a really cool feature

Rated! This game has such an interesting idea, and great excecution! I really liked the minimalist artstyle, and the fact that I could choose my own palette was a nice touch. The grappling can feel weird sometimes, but most of the time it works great. Super interesting twist on the jam's theme!

Love the art really nicely stylised, great level design, such a cool idea/concept!!

Nice job! The art on this one is really good and the grapple hook was satisfying!

Submitted(+1)

A really nice idea! I think it would have been nice if it were a little more forgiving, e.g. if you crash into a wall you're travelling nearly parallel to, you slide instead of completely stopping.

I love this! This is one of my favorite 3D art styles, how do you do it?

Really cool concept and execution.
