Bionic Jam? No that does not sound correct

I’ve spoken usually about how a lot I really like the indie growth scene, principally as a result of it’s the place loopy concepts can be combined to make one thing really distinctive. Grapple Hoops, as the identify suggests, is a grappling hook-based basketball sport and if that does not sound distinctive to you then I do not know what you need.

Developed by the one-man staff of Andreas Georgiou, Grapple Hoops options physics-based puzzles the place the purpose is to make the final soar shot or dunk on a hoop that is impossibly far-off from the place you began. It’s difficult, enjoyable, and extremely rewarding once you nail your shot from midway throughout the stage. Don’t consider me? You can attempt the demo out for yourselves right now.

Fun proper? While the demo presently solely reveals off the single-player puzzles, there is a deliberate multiplayer mode that Georgiou hopes will likely be the driving drive behind the sport. One of the modes they hope to implement is a “Dunk Race,” whereby it’s important to dunk on a sequence of hoops earlier than your opponent does.

Georgiou hopes to have the sport completed by the center of this 12 months however was very candid once I requested him about the timeline saying “It will be a challenge because I’m only one person developing this.” As of now, Grapple Hoops is solely on PC, with Georgiou hoping to carry it to each Mac and Linux. Currently, there are not any plans for a launch on any of the main consoles.
