Grapple Gum - backward shooter game

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to announce my new game called Grapple Gum , a backwards shooter in which you play as a little, pink piece of gum and grapple across moving objects. It's a neat mix of mechanics as you can float through the space, hitch a ride by hooking on the various platforms, and slingshot your way from one piece to another while also shooting at all kinds of targets, including big bosses and the little various sooty critters nibbling at your toes.

It will be an platform-action game that really tries to nail the "action shooter" feeling on mobile, this mean a one touch gameplay. I will update this thread with new content. Hope you like it.

Developed by: @Ali_Mehrez
Release: Summer 2017
Model: Premium. (No IAP or Ads)

- I have the pleasure to announce that I'm teaming with Zplay. With their help as a publisher well-established in Asia, I'll be able to release the game worldwide, localized and more polished than ever. The release is near so I've been working on a basic ingame tutorial.

- Still working hard on Grapple Gum, I made some major tweak on the User Interface and reworked the Upgrade System, now when you complete a level you have a choice of 2 random upgrades, the first one is free, if you want both it will cost you 1000 gem and if you dont want anyone of them, you can enjoy a bonus of 500 gem

- I was looking for somethings to surprise the player and I came up with this little fella, he likes to hide in balloons to trick us and prevent the player to catch the star

- The balloon you're hooked on will move the opposite direction you are firing on, react quickly and save it from exploding

- Here is some gameplay footage. This is all very early stuff but I wanted to go ahead and get the word out so I can answer your questions and get your feedback. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

- The splatter effect I developed, It uses a particle emitter and its super efficient on mobile

- thanks to /r/unity3d feedback, I reworked Grapple Gun UI from scratch, still a WIP but I am quiet happy with the paper feel

Cheers!
