Grapple Dog

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Grapple Dog suffers from frustrating gatekeeping, but simple controls and an adorable world make it an interesting experience that’s worth your time. Switch owners, beware, however: Grapple Dog is yet another unfortunate example of a game whose performance is severely compromised on the platform.

Game Info

Grapple Dog is an exhilarating 2D pixel-art platformer. Use your awesome grappling hook to clear tricky challenges as Pablo, the Grapple Dog! Sail across 6 colourful worlds with a crew of fearless adventurers to stop the robotic overlord Nul from destroying the world!

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.

9/10

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!
