Reviews:

"Grappling Hook <..> an incredible first person puzzler/platformer, a title that already is one of the best indie games released this year.

<..> the way it is right now, with short but challenging and intense levels, all smartly done, it's perfect. As a whole, Grappling Hook is an amazing product. It is lighting fast and very challenging, it manages to deliver some really smart puzzles and oblige you act quickly. Or die."

"Grappling Hook is a fantastic first-person puzzler which is very much in the same light as Valve's Portal."

Mike Rose - IndieGames <2>

"The developers have done a great job of throwing out new challenges, with something new coming at you at all times. <..> the game does a wonderful job with the first-person point of view and creates a surprisingly immersive environment. Pair that with smart puzzles and plenty of fast action and you'll stay grappling for a very long time!"
