Really loving the game!
I'm not too sure about the chains though.. Did you consider making them cancel your sideways momentum when you "grab" them, by moving up or down on them?
I feel like that would make it a bit more 'tight' and not decrease the skill at all, especially you're required to press ON the chain, like, you can't just hold up while you're flying towards it. Does that make sense?


Thank you! I did consider removing momentum when grabbing onto a climbable surface, but thought it was better to be consistent throughout the game instead of having some actions carry momentum and some not.

Its definitely something to consider tweaking though if I ever want release an updated version!

Looks like Bruce Lee! I like

Pure old school genius !!
