Grapple is a small Game Boy Metroidvania created for the GMTK Game Jam 2019.

It has three areas and only one upgrade: a grappling hook.

Instead of unlocking other upgrades, you learn different ways to use your grappling hook.

Use these new tactics to adventure across the world and find the three tokens, which open the way to the legendary treasure.

Good luck!


- left and right arrow keys to move

- space/Z to jump

- X to grapple in direction of held arrow key

- up arrow to interact with doors, save trees, chests, e.t.c.

- F1 to F10 to choose window size

- F11 to enable fullscreen

- ESC to pause and view minimap


- Save trees allow you to respawn at them when you die, but DO NOT save your progress if you quit the game.

- The game may crash if grappling in multiple directions very quickly. This will be fixed in an eventual patch.
