Not a bad effort. Bit flawed, but pretty good!
Yo! I getting used to like your game.
Though I have a bad dislike after first few tries, but I grown to love your gameplay and concept in this flash game. Though it remind me greatly of Bionic Commando and Super Metroid's Grapple Beam, this is pretty a fun game to play and try to challenge yourself for longest distance. Here are my takes:
Graphic: Meh. It's okay. Link, forest, and hookshot could look better, but they get the job done.
Style: Not much of style. Too simple for my taste
Sound: Now we are talking. The music is an excellent choice for frantic gameplay and insane challenge! Fun to listen to while playing, humming even!
Violence: Not much. Only landing onto thorny vines. Good thing we don't get to see the pain Link have to endure when landing onto the horrible prickly vines!
Interactivity: Good use of hookshot and the swinging mechanic. I also like the idea that if your swing is too large, you suffer the consequence of hitting the thorny vine. What I hate is that when Link released the hookshot and shot up above the forest, you cannot see him and unable to use hookshot, but I guess you could take advantage of large distance covered and when he fall, he fall pretty fast and I hate it when i missed the chance to swing again! Darn it! Or maybe that is your design choice, trying to give pro/con to this? Either way, your gameplay balance is pretty well done, except for shooting into sky.
Humor: Not much. But I laugh when I fall onto vines and the crashing/booming sound came after it. Dunno why, but it feel funny that way :3
Not a bad effort, though you should improve some area. Make the game looks better if you could and fix the swinging physic if you could since some releases are unrealistic. Overall, I hope this game get pass the judgment cause I gave you 4/5!
Keep improving and keep going!
