Rope Ninja (by Binary Helix, makers of Dangerous)



Preview build (final game will differ).

Swing through the air, hook and throw items and enemies, shoot things, deploy your shield, fight gigantic bosses. All with a single touch control scheme. How far can you descend?

Rope Ninja is a game inspired by the likes of Spelunky and Nuclear Throne. It has a unique rope movement and throwing mechanic and huge bosses for you to fight in a fully realized physics environment. It's been in development for a few years as a side project, but has taken a life of its own.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

It looks interesting. How does the firing mechanic work with the one touch?

It's tap to place the ropes or hook items (this also reloads a portion of your bullets/energy), drag to shoot, and touch and hold to deploy the shield. If you hook something, tap direction to throw it.

Pretty simple to learn, but tougher to master.

Yup, love those rope games. The difference here is you have full range of movement since these "magical" ropes attach to the air.
