In Huggernaut, you can’t jump. But that’s no big deal – not when you’ve got a GRAPPLING HOOK!
A grappling hook you will use to HUG ALL YOUR FRIENDS~!

Dodge spikes and blaze throúgh hoops in 23 levels in this unique, colourful platformer. Are you fast enough to get a star in every level? Well if you are, you can try the SPEEDRUN MODE, unlocked when you finish the game. This mode lets you play through all the levels consecutively and time your performance. And if you’re not… then don’t feel bad, I like you anyway. :)

UPDATE 2018-08-18:
I have made some small difficulty adjustments, most notably in level 20. Some of the star times have also been increased.

Additionally, the game now limits the cursor to the game area! (in browsers that support this). This way, you no longer risk clicking outside the frame. The cursor is automatically unlocked in menus, and you can manually unlock it at any time by pressing Esc.

Fun and not extremely hard or too easy.

wholesome 100

I was so not ready for the last level, but I beat it after 100+ tries. lol

Fun, cute, happy game. The angles are fun.

Awesome game! Not really a speedrunner, but I still greatly enjoy the physics of the grappling hook, and the little "wahoo!" and "yahoo!" stuff your guy yells as he flies out is just the perfect little cherry on top.
