"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." Calin Ciabai - Unigamesity
