Lucius the angel hurt his wings as he fell down from the sky!

What else could he possibly do now, but grab his divine hook and some rope, and swing around collecting coins for his hospital bill?


- Don't throw a hook onto a platform near you: you will gain almost no velocity from that! Instead, try to find the best distance between the angel and a platform for maximum speed!
- When hunting coins, maximum speed isn't always optimal.


Left mouse button - Throw a new hook
A and S keys - Activate powerups bought in the shop
Right click - Options


This started out as a small project, but it eventually grew into something.. uhm, fairly medium-sized :) The gameplay is simple, but raising the money to fix those wings of yours might not be! Can you do it quickly and make it onto the leaderboard?

Hope you enjoy, and feel free to add this game to your site if you wish (see info on the menu)!

hard at first

but gets increasilngly easyer with the powerups though...
all in all, a good game, but should be more laptop friendly...

Frustrating problems

I noticed that while in slow motion your velocity tends to do the same. Also, the click detection is a bit dodgy whenever you fall below the horizon of the screen.

He falls waaaaay too fast.

it's pretty fun, but the angel falls way too fast and It's kind of annoying when you cant get enough power to get him to go up because you have to let him drop down far enough to get that type of pull, but by the time you try he already falls too far.
