About This Game

Floating Point is a free, peaceful game about using a grappling hook to swing yourself gracefully through randomly generated spaces. In the air, you're fighting gravity. When you splash down beneath the water, you're fighting your own buoyancy to swing yourself further into the depths.

The only objective is to collect points, and the only thing that increases your points is swinging swiftly, smoothly and elegantly without hitting anything. As you pick up momentum, you start to glow, the bars you're collecting rise up, the music kicks in, and your trajectory burns a bright red line in the air, drawing huge, beautiful mathematical curves of your arcing flight.

Also the name is a pun, so that's cool.

They give you a dot and a grappling hook of sorts. A "few" hours later, and everyone you've ever cared about has abandoned you to your point-induced coma. 11/10

It's rare that a game gets MORE fun as you play, but Floating Point is that game.

Engaging and absorbing, more fun as you get good at the timing.

Thank you, Tom Francis, for the freebie!

Massively fun time waster. Better, more original ideas and mechanics than most AAA games, never mind games you can play for absolutely free. No real sense of progression or altered difficulty, but then what can you expect from a totally free game? Absolutely worth the 50MB or however much space it takes up, as well as an hour or two of your time. Do not listen to the negative reviews, as not one single person who wrote one seems to understand that twenty minutes of entertainment from a completely free game is still an amazing deal.

I just downloaded because is made by Suspicious Developments, the game overall is very simple and peaceful, its about of 60 MB to dowload the game.
Floating Point is just the perfect game to play while you hear music, not necessarily the soundtrack of the game (that is very good too). Well not very impressive.

Best game ever. Free-est game of free. You'll be free like a bird.

This game is pretty much an example that not much is needed to make it good. Also, headphones are nice to have.

It's a good, fun, timewaster. Customize the settings to just screw around/perform badass tricks, but either way, you'll get about a good hour-or-so out of it.

This is one of those games that half of people will hate and think is dull and the other half will love it. I love it myself but it doesn't need an amazing PC and it doesn't take up much memory at all AND it's free, so I recommend getting it, playing it for a few hours and seeing if you like it or not. It's a unique, simple sort of game that you can easily get into and can get good at fairly easily, yet it's still hard enough that you can mess up.

It was good... for a little while. In my opinion it gets boring quickly, but I can see how it would be relaxing if you had a podcast, etc. playing in the background. I wasnt a huge fan of it myself, but its good for a F2P game.

Rating: 6/10

Floating Point is an excellent game for when you don't want something that takes much of anything. It obviously isn't resource-heavy. You can play it for basically any length of time that fits your fancy. It requires little brainpower, so its nice for when you're dead on Thursday night or something. Simple, fun, and free!

I was messing around with the custom settings and it got really weird. I tried to fix it, but it was stuck with INCREDIBLY high backround towers. 10/10 would mess up my settings again.






(FYI this is a supercalafajilisticexpealadios game)
