Jump and swing and grapple in this neat little platformer!

6Overall Score: 4/5

Great gameplay and presentation! Lasting value is only average.

Gameplay: 5/5

The game starts off slow and easy, but it progresses really well! Enemies get tougher, water is introduced (which kills you), grappling hooks appear, and so much more! There’s a great variety between all the levels too. Some are more vertically designed, while others are larger horizontally. Some require a ton of swinging and grappling, while others require precise jumping. It’s honestly a good game! Reminds me of Little Big Planet, which is also a great game (I wouldn’t be surprised if they got the grappling hook idea from LBP… grappling hooks are so much fun!)

Presentation: 4/5

The visuals look polished and the music/sound effects are great!

Lasting Value: 3/5


It only takes about two and a half hours to finish the game. It could definitely use more levels. However, it does have a “speed run” that can be completed on each level, in addition to collecting all the 5 fruits at the end of each level, so replayability is at least pretty good.
