A cute yet frustrating platformer, with a grappling hook that can’t quite do the business on levels mired in frustrating repetition.

Grapple Dog is a light, breezy mascot platformer that hooks you with precise, simple controls.

Grapple Dog is an adorable, challenging platformer with a lot of content for the price. It’s a great filler if you’re waiting on some of the bigger 2022 titles to be released, or if you’re wanting a game to play with the kids. I highly recommend checking it out!
