Here comes Version 1.2.2!

Got a nice little update coming in today! No major gameplay features this time - mostly bugfixes this time around. The two biggest changes this time are:

  • Boss Health Portraits: Every boss in the game now has a health bar portrait just as lively and animated as Rena's! Now your battles will truly feel like a clash of rivals!
  • Propella Fella rework: The flying 'Propella Fella' enemies often gave players trouble, having been one of the only enemies that is always attacking and deals contact damage. To bring their difficulty more in line with the rest of the enemies in the game, they now have a clear 'attacking' state during which they deal damage, and don't deal damage at all when they aren't attacking. A brief pause and a warning sound precedes an attack, so you'll have plenty of time to react! Their hitbox has also been made a bit smaller, so only contact with the body will damage Rena.

There's still more features to come - so keep your eyes peeled! If you find any bugs, please report them on our GitHub bug tracker!

There's More to Do in v1.2!

Another feature update is coming in hot! Now there's even more to do in Grapple Force Rena. Check out what's new:

  • Extras Menu: Assist Mode and Color Edit have been moved to a new subsection in the main menu, "Extras". Along with these two old features, we have two new ones:
  • Music Player: Now you can enjoy the game's soundtrack with the Music Player! But not so fast - you only start with a tiny handful of tracks unlocked. If you want to listen to the rest, you'll need to find cassette tapes hidden all through the game's courses. Some courses even have changes and additions to their layouts to add more hiding spaces - and you can get a couple achievements if you find them all! Happy tape-hunting!
  • Time Attack: There's a brand new way to compete for the best times in Grapple Force Rena! Quickly run through any of the six worlds, or even test your speed across the full game. Time Attack skips all cutscenes, results screens, and disables all dialogue, with a real-time clock that doesn't pause for anything, even if you pause the game - better keep up the pace until the very end!

I pushed this update out pretty quick this time around, so there's still a few outstanding bugs that need fixing, and there may be a few bugs with the new features I haven't been able to account for yet - if you find anything, it'd be much appreciated if you could log any bugs on the GalaxyTrail GitHub issue tracker!

And just a reminder - if you've enjoyed Grapple Force Rena so far, it'd be much appreciated if you could leave us a review here on Steam! It would help us out a lot!

NOTE: I accidentally forgot to update the version number ingame. Whoops. I'll fix it tomorrow. If you've got the extras menu, you're running the latest version!

About This Game

In this unique action platformer, use Rena's magical 'grappling bracelets' to latch onto any surface - not confined to specific 'grapple points', you can swing freely through the game's varied environments. You'll come up against some fierce foes, but don't fret! By grabbing enemies and tossing them into each other, you can make quick work of any threat. Creatively use the environment and your enemies' powers against each other to turn the tables in your favor! Inspired by the mid-90's action games of legendary developer Treasure Co. Ltd, Grapple Force Rena combines the familiar aesthetics of the 16-bit era with its own unique brand of grappling gameplay.

You'll join Rena through 30 challenging courses as she saves her home village from the invasion of a mysterious automaton army, diving head-first into adventure and finding herself caught up in a grander conspiracy than she may have expected. Coming into contact with a cast of colorful characters, enemy and ally alike, she'll get closer and closer to unwrapping the mysteries of her own arcane artifact and those of others - and learn just what it takes to be a real hero!
