Ok.
The grappling mechanics take a bit of getting used to, but I love it.
There's various environments, power ups, and upgrades.
There's lots of cool touches added to the environment.
You can hook an eagle and it will take you for a ride, bounce on trampolines, etc.

This isn't your usual endless climber.
You have a target where the level ends, and then you open up new locations.

Gamecenter leaderboards and achievements
Unfortunately GC isn't working for me (in any game, surprise.), so I'm not sure about the details of the achievements and leaderboards right now

I'll give deeper imps later, but I really like it.

Yep, I agree. This is really cool. Lots of levels and upgrades. The flinging mechanics are fun. It takes some skill, but it leaves just enough to chance to make it really great.

Ninja Newton. This game has taken me by surprise. I wasn't expecting too much when I bought this earlier, but it's certainly become my favorite release this week. There are tons of levels to play here plus an "endless" mode. The flinging of your grappling hook can be upgraded as can the actual rope. There are enemies, obstacles and cool power-ups. GameCenter is here for your best height and plenty of achievements.

I don't just recommend this game, if you like high score chasing arcade/adventure games...GET THIS GAME

Richard

Would love to see this game in motion, does it play like Cloudbreakers?

The actual gameplay isn't quite like CB. When you fling your grappling hook and it latches on, it propels you in an upward direction relative to your initial position. Once you are going you'll bounce off the sides of the screen. I hope someone puts up some video because the game gets really chaotic, in a controllable way after you upgrade your hook and rope.

Not really.
It is much deeper than cloud breakers, but if you like cloud breakers I'd say you'll like this.

It may be my favorite release this week too.

@rich - have you got the boat?
