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.

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.

This game is pretty awesome, once you get down the basics that is of course. This Game is special, not in the bad way, This game has calm chilled music, but sadly not enough of that. Though i do hope that there will be more music later on (As Far As i know there are 7 Songs according to the Bandcamp album that is) but if not it's not too big of a problem, even though the music could get annoying after a while. Now for the Game mechanics. This game is basically a movement based game where you move around as a Pixel with a Grappling hook, while trying to earn Points. How to do that? Well just don't touch the Walls and stay fast to get a lot of points for collecting the Red bars that raise the longer you stay away from the Walls. It is hard though to get speed though (found a good way for myself for now). And Thats it for the Mechanics. So This game is a 7/10 in my opinion, mainly because there is not enough music to it. And i would really like to see a Scoreboard in future Updates to compare the Points to my Friends (and a way to save the points too that is). If there is a Scoreboard i am sorry and i did not see it.

TL;DR:
Game is a 7/10,
Needs more Music.
Fun to Play though.
Go and Play it, Gets Addicting really fast.
