Arcad Advanced Stream #23 - A grappling hook tragedy

Hey folks,

In today’s stream @darzu, @jwunderl, @shakao and I made a grappling hook game! Unfortunately, it is with great sadness that I must report that technical difficulties have once again thwarted our recording of the stream. I’m posting the game here anyways because it’s a pretty good one!

I’ll be making some changes to our setup to prevent this from happening in the future, so please keep watching!

The MakeCode Arcade Advanced stream happens every weekday at 1:00pm PST on

The grappling hook looks cool but the movement seems weird. In other games with hooks I’ve played, the left and right buttons can be used to increase/decrease your swing, and up or the A button is to release / grab.
