I really like the movement and physics of this game, just that made it enjoyable! It wasn't complicated either, I was able to jump into it. Though I haven't played many yet, this is my favorite game of the jam so far. I feel like if this game is expanded into being more challenging and longer, it could be really fun!

Thank you so much:). Yeah it is currently being worked on with more levels, more art and new game mechanics with progressive difficulty. And it will be available for pre-order on the App Store too from some time today.

This was fun, and I loved the art style! I also appreciate the highlights around the trees. Makes 'em easier to identify and click, especially mid-swing. 

There were a few instances where I wanted to click a tree at the edge of the screen and missed, and clicking outside the game window pauses it. Maybe a future version could have some kind of frame or something as a buffer? Thanks for sharing your game!

Thank you. Yeah I noticed that problem as well. I will be experimenting with a few solutions for it. I am testing it on my phone as well and this problem seems less noticable tho

Nice art :) !! This game gave me a slight getting over it with bennett foddy feeling ;D ! There aren't many levels and the grappling hook physics do feel a bit random and weird but still, the art and satisfying pop sound make for a solid little jam entry !

Yeah I did have it at first that you could swing the hook as the hammer in Getting Over It :D Shame there was no more time as I have more level plans and assets that just didnt make it into this game. Thanks

It's a good concept and the art is very nice but as Zaba11 said, it lacks a bit of gameplay. The swinging never really feels controllable enough to make me feel like I'm making a conscious swing and the camera being so close to the action makes it hard to see anything. Otherwise a really solid idea and really impressive for a game jam! Well done!

I see what you guys mean. I'll look into those. I'm still planning to expand on this game cause a few things didnt make it into this game like the enemies and collectables so I'll try out what you said. thanks
