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.

Check it out on itch.io.

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.

Very cool! Difficult to wrap my brain around, but that's by design. Still, it teaches you the mechanics well. Also I love the face, it is so funny. Good stuff.

P#86855 2021-01-27 23:21

thanks so much !!!!

P#86908 2021-01-29 08:18

Reminds me of Octodad's mechanics.

P#87156 2021-02-03 09:15

Small fix to the previously broken toggle controls. Sorry it's been messed up for so long!

P#87766 2021-02-16 19:04

This is confusing but very interesting and fun, good job

P#88740 2021-03-09 19:08

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.

P#89306 2021-03-21 14:15 ( Edited 2021-03-21 14:52)

Great game! Took me a while to beat but I finally beat it

P#89339 2021-03-22 00:00

its like pikuniku but you have arms now :D

P#89623 2021-03-26 16:32

Got the sub 3 :)

Still have yet to pull off a deathless run.

P#89711 2021-03-29 01:32

I don't think I could ever compete lol.
is the fastest time about 2:30 without new hand clips or whatever being found?

P#89713 2021-03-29 02:23

@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.

P#89714 2021-03-29 03:24

@hahhah42 hmm, well either way amazing work!

P#89715 2021-03-29 03:38

new update: added a nicer looking label image, and added a key counter in-game for speedrunning.

P#89846 2021-04-02 02:58

couldnt help myself - updated the grab type option in the menu to use the new menuitem features. also FINALLY fixed the bug where the toggle mode face wasn't appearing. toggle users might get a small surprise ...

P#89877 2021-04-02 18:32

@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:

P#89941 2021-04-04 00:28

@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

P#89942 2021-04-04 00:57

@SmellyFishstiks Please do, I'd love to see them!

P#89952 2021-04-04 03:02

Welp I got 8:12, was more fun than I thought I should try some more some time. https://youtu.be/nZWzb6kHA2Q

P#89957 2021-04-04 08:41

Sub 2 finally done, thanks to a sudden realization earlier tonight:

Came far too close to choking the ending.

P#90391 2021-04-12 06:05

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.

P#93412 2021-06-13 12:26

no, thank you!! so glad you enjoyed!

P#94432 2021-07-04 06:21

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!!!

P#96248 2021-08-19 22:40 ( Edited 2021-08-20 14:26)

The music is super good! Controls are hard but I love the expression of the character, the smooth movements feel super satisfying.

P#96505 2021-08-26 23:37

Its inspiring how good this game is.
I'm playing it off my phone and having a blast
Though... I should probably get back to
reading my history textbook. I'll be sure to
share this cart around.

P#96508 2021-08-27 01:45

This is a great game, both in concept and execution. Really fun to play!

P#97331 2021-09-15 03:43

basically ¨I am bread¨ hard to control, but fun to play!

P#102202 2021-12-09 18:08

A really enjoyable and fun game! Thank you for sharing!

P#106851 2022-02-13 19:24

Any chance of getting a save feature, at this late date? Game is loads of fun, but it's too much to finish in one quick sitting, and Pico in the browser has a tendency to crash if you leave it open overnight.
