You are a Grabble!

Grabbles is a deceptively simple platformer that requires players to navigate the levels in an unconventional way. Rather than running and jumping, Grabbles pull themselves through a treacherous alien world using their two sticky elastic appendages.
This 2-D physics-based platformer has a play style that encourages flow control and quick reflexes. Players are immersed in a colorful world full of challenging environments to traverse for the casual player as well as an exhilarating and highly competitive multiplayer experience for the hard-core gamer.

Each sticky appendage can be aimed and fired using either the joysticks and triggers on a controller or the left and right mouse buttons.

This is a good game with a great and unique concept. The music was relaxing, but could use an option to switch between several other jingles to accompany ones mood of play. This was a great even when played alone. I think the option to play a story mode that gives detail on these catastrophic events you mention would be great. The just add another section for multiplayer where you can choose unlocked maps and choose the design of your grabble. Still a good game that has potential to become better. I hope you take note my ideas on this for maybe a sequel. Thanks and glad I played this :) You can pm if your interested to listen to the details of my idea on this if you ever plan to make a sequel. Good job and well done:D

Thanks for the kind words. Glad you like it. We couldn't quite get the story to where we wanted to for this version of the game. We decided it had to go out and we had to start getting feedback on it. We definitely plan on having unlockable cranium accessories for your Grabble. We actually have a ninja headband already made that sways in the breeze but didn't want to wait to put the accessory system in the game.

This version is basically like a concept demo. We want to put much more time into it but still aren't sure if it's worth it. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=248397935 is where we are attempting to get onto Steam for the full version. Don't worry, we'll be doing everything you've said before it goes on Steam. I don't want to promise ten levels for each multiplayer mode but that's what I'm envisioning, we are also fiddling with more multiplayer game modes like co-op and soccer. We have quite a few maps made already but getting art for them is difficult.
