Swing!

MatthewStirling
MatthewStirling

Here is my entry for the Game Jam - Swing! (yes, you have to shout it)

The gist is pretty simple - you swing around using a grappling hook and you must avoid dying. Don't touch the red blocks and don't get shot by a Turret (duh). Play through the Levels or enter the Arena and try to survive.

The way the game relates to the theme of Cash is.. uh.. you get to keep your cash because this game is free!

For the best experience, open this link in a new tab:

I think this should win. I have spent hours enjoying this game! Maybe we could collab on adding sprites, or polishing the game. Hmu! Otherwise it is an amazing game!

Thanks! I'm not sure that I will continue developing the game, but the game sure could use some polishing. I know there are still some bugs. Have you encounter any of them?

Splash text ideas:

"This text is green" (make it red though)
"Nobody: "
"Game Jam? More like lame jam"

Haha, good ones. Unfortunately I don't think I can update anything in the game anymore. Maybe they will let me update the splashes though.

Great game! I spent some time playing this, it's pretty fun. Also, lowering the grappling hook (I think it's the E key) stutters a bit. I also made a game but no one's looking at it (it's at https://repl.it/talk/challenge/Infinite-Runner-Thing/12625).

Is it super slow for you, or do you want to see how others play it?
