GRiPPY is a hardcore, subversive platformer where you cant walk or jump but you can climb. You play as Grippy, a creature with very, very strong arms, but no legs. You must travel by hurling yourself across the world and latching onto anything you can GRIP, climbing through a mysterious underground complex and overcoming hostile terrain. Find a way out to win!
- O/X (z/x on keyboard): reach out a hand and grab
- left/right: rotate aim angle
- down (hold): aiming mode; reach without grabbing
- up: hop
You can change your control settings in the pause menu.
I spent a lot of time and effort making this game. The map, sfx, token limit, and spritesheet are packed. If you like it, you can purchase executables on the itch.io page. If you find any bugs, let me know!
Oh, and please, post your finish times! I'm excited to see how fast people can beat it. Once someone beats my time I'll post mine. >:)
Got a time of 00:12:19 in the browser version.
Based on how many mistakes I had in this run, I'm guessing sub 5 for ivy?
Edit: On second thought, maybe sub 4? No sub 5 for me yet
Edit 2: And two days later, got the sub 5:
dude, sweet! i didn't record it but here is my score:
yea i know nobody has beaten it yet but you are the closest i've seen to it, and you died way fewer times. good shit - i didn't think anyone would get any better at this game than i am, lol. I'll record and upload a run in a minute here.
EDIT: okay, here's the best you're gonna get from me in the morning, lol.
Got the sub 3 :)
Still have yet to pull off a deathless run.
I don't think I could ever compete lol.
is the fastest time about 2:30 without new hand clips or whatever being found?
@SmellyFishstiks I'm honestly not sure how much time there is to save. When I rewatched the run, my initial guess was 30 seconds or so, but it's hard to judge how much better certain sections could be.
@hahhah42 hmm, well either way amazing work!
@SmellyFishstiks After my most recent run, I now think it's likely possible to get a sub 2. Might require some pretty hairy leaps of faith.
Also, the game is on speedrun.com, for anyone who'd like to submit their best times:
@hahhah42 I don't know if I'll ever be able to get to the insane skill level your at but it would be fun to post my scores on there ya. insane work though dude; blew my mind watching that
Welp I got 8:12, was more fun than I thought I should try some more some time. https://youtu.be/nZWzb6kHA2Q
Sub 2 finally done, thanks to a sudden realization earlier tonight:
Came far too close to choking the ending.
I've cleared five times now, yet still haven't managed to set a time below 10 minutes. But I sure do love trying! There's such satisfaction in stretching about the map (which is fiendish-but-fair), and Grippy's expressive little face is always endearing. Thank you for this cart: absolutely one of my favourites.
So much fun! Controls were intuitive; love the mechanics and the different challenges presented. The facial expression when you slam your fist into some spikes is great. Grippy is 10/10, best arm blob monster! :)
Edit: Forgot to mention how much I love the music!!! An absolute jam!!!
basically ¨I am bread¨ hard to control, but fun to play!
A really enjoyable and fun game! Thank you for sharing!
