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.

This game can be good for playing in short bursts, or can be played for hours on end. I personally play this about 10-15 minutes before school everyday, and I don't feel like I need to keep playing but more that it will be nice to come back to when school is done.

Fantastic game, being able to remap the controls would be a big help for laptop users. being hable to use space bar instead of right click (cant be a pain with a macbook) to release the hook would be great. other than that no complaints.

It's interactive enough for me to feel like I'm actually playing a game but it also doesn't hold my mind to the point where I can't listen to a podcast while playing or something like that all while being very relaxing, I love it and to be honest for the type of game that it is I think it's perfect.

Tom Francis made a free game. What are you waiting for?

Seriously though, this game is a lot of fun. It's easy to learn, but has a lot of depth if you want to rack up a lot of points. It's extremely satisfying to get a long combo going. I feel like a master physicist when I get a nice long swing and can hit a bunch of long bars. Best game with a ball and lines this year.

You could have downloaded this and tried if for yourself in the time it took to read this review. I have photos bigger than this game. Just try it. You won't be disappointed. Check out Mr. Francis' other game, Gunpoint. It's incredible.
