How does your submission match the theme?
The frogs Basic action, used for multiple purposes, its a weapon, a grappling hook, and it can be used to move items around, but also using it has negative effect like running out of air quicker.

A lot of my comments others have mentioned below, but I'm going to just +1 that the tongue was slow, and I didn't know what I could or could not grapple onto. I tried to grapple onto the walls and couldn't. I also tried grappling the platforms and it worked maybe 3/10 times. I lost near the very bottom of the map once because I couldn't get the hang of it.

That being said, the music fit your aesthetic and the art was pretty good :) I think if you improved the mechanics and feel of the game it would be great.

Either way, great job! :D

thank you for play the game and giving good feedback i appreciate it .

Argh was so close to winning and because the tongue caught two boxes the frog got bugged out of the playable area, lol!

Think that it just requires a bit of bugfixing and tuning (the tongue could move faster for starters), otherwise its a decent puzzle mechanic and interesting concept!

thanks for playing, and i'm sorry to hear that it got bugged, yeah there are tons of bugs, i did not have enough time to fix them all so it is what it is, i will fix them at some point try and fix and explore the possibilities.

Good job, the tongue bugged sometimes for me but I was able to finish the game and have some fun. I see you used Construct, I used it too ^^

yeah the tongue was very buggy and i did not have much time left, so i put in a restart button just in case.  thanks for playing

Idea is decent, although execution is a bit lacking.

The tongue is unnecessarily slow in my opinion, and gets easily bugged especially if there's more than 1 box around. I got stuck and started floating on several occasions. I also didn't at first realize that the tongue flies all the way up to the mouse, so I thought it had a very short range.

The platform in the center should have a special texture to indicate that it's possible to grab it with your tongue, since it looks the same as the walls and you can't grab the walls, I thought the platform was just another wall.

I think the theme would come out better if you weren't able to jump, and instead had to grab the ceiling or wall where you want to move to, or even better were able to swing from the ceiling using the tongue. You could also put the oxygen tanks on shelves or something so you'd need to use the tongue to grab them.
