Were you inspired by DaniDev by any chance? 😀

ID: h7gwc0g

A lot! However my game is 100% focused on swinging around, just one of my favorite mechanics of swinging (kinda like spiderman) built into a game!

ID: h7hhu3p

It looks great! I’ve always loved grapple mechanics in games so this looks like a really fun project.

A few things that I can recommend;

Obstacles It would be cool to have things that you need to swing ove

/around. Maybe some of them move, or maybe you could have rings or boxes that you can swing through for a speed boost (or other goodies!). Another cool implementation of this would be to add a mode that’s less of a race and more like an obstacle course. Think like a 3D version of Break the Targets from mash bros!

Longer jumps You have really cool physics so far and it looks super fun to swing around. Maybe add jumps where you need to let go and fly for a bit before aiming for the next grapple point.

Speed This is mostly a personal thing, but it doesn’t feel like you’re going as fast as the speedometer claims. I feel like speeding the character even a little up would add more of an adrenaline rush. Adding an in game timer would be cool, too, because I can see the finished project being popular with the speed running community!

Overall these are just some personal opinions, but this is a really cool project and I’m interested to see where it goes!

Edit: I noticed the in game timer lol

Kinda reminds me of karlson

ID: h7gwm8f

the grappling hook mechanics are absolutely based on karlson!

ID: h7hdt3n

oh you don’t know what karlson is

ID: h7hcb8n

I'd say it looks more similar to Cyber Hook

Sling is a grappling hook parkour game where your goal is to beat the levels as fast as possible. The game currently only has 4 levels and a playground where you can try out the mechanics. Check the game out on

Nice! Great work!! It kind of reminds me of Cyber Hook. Keep it up!!

ID: h7gxdhr

Thanks for the nice comment, absolutely loved Cyber Hook when I started searching for similar games, although I found it painfully hard sometimes lol

I’m not a knowledgeable gamer so All I could think about is attack on Titan… this game looks pretty fricken cool.

ID: h7gxnuq

Thank you very much, never thought about the similarities with AoT, but I do see them now that you mentioned! If you want to download the game to try it for yourself it is free on

What are you going to call it...spider gun?

ID: h7h9sza

ID: h7hcttk

Thank you very much!

Prolly sick of hearing this but it reminds me of Dani's Karlson, looks good tho

ID: h7h1msc

Feedback is never enough, atleast now I know that my artstyle should be as distant from karlson as possible

Spider-Man: CSGO edition

ID: h7h8a7r

haha, I was definetely inspired by both games

21 : Anonymous2021/08/02 21:19 ID: h7h56ko

This is great. Keep making stuff, it sets you apart from people who don't.

ID: h7h7jp1

Thanks! Def planning to keep working on games!

i know this might sound weird, but what are the requirements? my pc can't handle a chrome tab without staying at 3.1Gb ram. no less, no more. that's like 89% of my entire ram usable btw

ID: h7h81bc

So far none of my friends that played were unable to run the game. However it does have graphics settings in case you want to set it to low and try to run it!

ID: h7h884b

welp, considering the gpu i have, it will usually be stuck on the lowest setting possible, but its still nice to have. cant wait to try the game out

23 : Anonymous2021/08/02 21:43 ID: h7h8bw9

Looks very similar to Verlet Swing, which I loved. You should check it out! Best of luck!

ID: h7h8iia

I played that game when I was looking at similar games, really enjoyed, mainly their really unique art style!

ID: h7hafe0

What do you think the main differences between them are, besides the art style? Or planned differences

24 : Anonymous2021/08/02 21:59 ID: h7hai6e

Nice. I hope this goes somewhere because good movement based FPSs are getting harder to come by. I think the last popular game like this was portal 2.

ID: h7hbam6

Thanks, there are actually a lot of games like mine focused on movement before anything. However they are becoming a bigger niche every day that goes by :/ If you want I can recommend a few that I found while researching for my game!

Them pipes lookin kinda THICC

26 : Anonymous2021/08/02 22:14 ID: h7hciqt

if you release the full game I will be buying it. no doubt.

ID: h7hcvrn

Thank you very much, I do think it'll be a long time until full release but I'll contact you when I officially launch!

Here come a hundred people to say "Karlson clone". It's not, it's cooler.
