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

Pretty good for relaxing.

Just wear some headphones, and start swinging. At first, it might not seem like much, but after some concentration and a few minutes, you'll be deep in a trance like state, relaxed, you will only care about points, and about how good it feels to swing smoothly and with elegance from platform to platform.

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.

Worth playing now and then. Don't worry about the points, just relax and swing and bounce around. It's really that simple in concept, but getting the hang of swinging (particularly when you're "too high") can be tricky.

Possibly the most relaxing - yet simple - game on Steam. Maybe even on the Internet.

Very relaxing game. Simple yet fun game. Need a little practice for smooth flow. Its free and doesn't take much space on HD.
I recommend it for taking a break from games that makes you hate humankind.

Seriously, nothing's not to like about this game. Better storyline than COD.

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.

Wow...Just Wow...Is this game kinda boring...Yes...Does the music need your custom soundtrack...Yes...Is this game simple to pick-up and play...Yes...
Can you stop playing this game...No...Cause it's always "after this level then i'll quit"...
For a free game I would pay a couple of dollars if they kept updating this...
This is how indie games should play and feel...
I can't recommend this game enough...
Relaxing game at it's finest...
Now back to "one more level"...
