control is so awkward. It will be way better to change it to shake like control
A downloadable game for Windows
What is it about ?
Grappling Scarf puts you in a place where you must protect your base from tanks and bombs. But, you can't shot, weapons are obsolete. You only have a really cool scarf. This scarf can be split in multiple mini-scarves. Your scarf can also deflect bullets and more importantly, it can be used as a grappling hook to move objects.
How does it fit the theme ?
Well. It's all about making and breaking the "joints" of your scarves at will.
A bigger scarf make it's more difficult to handle bombs and bonuses, but makes it easier to deflects bullet. But, also, leaving a scarf too far can make it risky to retrieve it. So it's all about scarf management in the end.
It's simple. You can use the arrow keys or WASD to move. Space to split your scarf. That's all. There are four levels that each introduce one new ennemy. Have fun !
Oh, and a small tip. Bombs can hurt ennemies too ;)
Of course, this game has been made in 48hours, but that doesn't mean that you have seen everything. Here's several ideas that could have been made into the game if I had more time.
- Moving the base using your grappling scarf
- Bonuses that lengthen your scarf
- Different types of base to protect. Some that can move, others that are only there for a defined amount of time
- Enemies that can steal scarves
- Enemies that can only be destroyed when they are completely surrounded by the scarf
- Buildings, where you have escort something through
- Multiplayer where players can share scarves
- The potench' is infinite !
Anyway, thank you for playing !
Oh, and it's made with the Monogame framework in C#

Good But Hard For me
You mention support for WASD, but it doesn't seem to work.
Amazing game! The mechanism works very well with each other！
The genius design is you need to move the bomb far away from the center,
and the bomb also has a time limit, so you will naturally what to break the link and make yourself shorter to deal with other bombs
But the new mechanism “shooter” is a new problem，you can not just put your body far away because you need to relink and put your body in the right direction！
This game works very well on balancing the action part and strategy part！
Really love it
can you also give controls like WASD, and also space bar along with enter key
