Rope swinging / Grappling / Hookshot games

Lately I've been super into rope swinging games. There have been a ton on iOS over the years, so I decided to try and come up with a list of the good ones I know.

What are some others?

Upcoming
Hang Line

Current
  • King Tongue
  • Ocmo
  • Rope Racers (I reviewed this one for TA)
  • Hanger series (I also reviewed the most recent of these)
  • Fire Rides
  • Rootworld
  • Mikey Hooks/Jumps
  • One More Line
  • Rope'n'Fly series
  • Magnetized

Not unavailable anymore
  • Rock Runners
  • Slingshot Racing (this kills me, one of my favorite games ever)
  • Hook Champ series
  • Sway

Anyway, those are the only swinging/grappling games I can think of currently. Please suggest more!

My power-pop band is on iTunes.

Very nice list, thanks, and concerning me, you've got all of them pretty much covered up.

Not for ios 11, but since i'm still on ios 10.3.3, SWAY is still available AND playable (with black borders of course).
