tether! Swing Around a Ball of Destruction!
tether! is game where you wreck as many enemies as possible using your tether, however if an enemy touches your ball then you get obliterated! This game has full mobile and offline support, designed as a progressive web application! This is my group's end-of-the-year project for our CS class.

The vibin' background music you hear is now available to hear on Youtube! Check it out, and chill to it! Please give me a thumbs up if you like it and tell us in the comments what's your best score!
🔥 New Better Offline Support
Before I used some outdated, depreciated Internet technology to keep this game running offline, but no longer! Welcome to the world of true PWA's with the inclusion of new offline service workers tether can now be played without any Internet in offline mode!
🔥 New Updated URL
After looking for some new hosting solutions I decided to go with Firebase to host tether! In addition to the lengthy Replit URL you can also find tether at https://tether-game.web.app/. Firebase also allows me to also add in some new upcoming changes...
The first few levels are tutorials, after a few rounds with each character you'll enter an endless wave so be prepared.
Keep an eye on enemies spawning in (the circles with their position), they will charge at you blazing fast after it!
Don't let your tether go wack! If you move it around too much, it becomes uncontrollable and you have an awful time dealing with Eyes.
Instead of charging a Twitchy head on, wait for it to run out of fuel and then destroy it.
Here are the top five scores! Comment below with a picture of your highest score to be added to the leaderboard (and keep in mind this is a small community game, don't bother cheating).
