Swinger


| Comments (5) | Views (2)

SwingerSwinger is an odd little arcade-style Flash game that offers familiar "clear the board while avoiding the enemies" gameplay in a unique style all its own.

Created by Mark Arenz of Ridiculopathy.com, the object of the game is to swing the bar from post to post to clear all the colored dots from each level—some colors require more than one visit. Clear all 10 levels in the shortest time possible.

Use the arrow keys for swinging left and right, press space to jump, and Ctrl to skip a post. Each of the 10 levels offers a different challenge, with some enemies freezing you for a short time, while others reduce your lives by one.

Getting the hang of movement around the board is tricky, and yet gratifying when done correctly. Some posts can only be visited by jumping, but be careful not to fall off the board and lose a life. The various devices employed in each level make the game fun like a game of mini-golf. It's a cute game with character, if at times a tad frustrating.

Wow, I like Swinger! No, I dont like Swinger!

What a great idea, but at same time hard to play. I am not sure what exactly, but something is wrong there. Maybe because it could be good puzzle, but it tries to be action game? Or because it can be very hard to control the thingy.

It confuses me, its best idea I have seen for some time and yet, it isnt fun enough to play as it should be.

Yes, I agree with you Tony, there is much potential here and yet it seems to fall short somehow. I do find myself coming back to play the game again, so, at least for me, it does succeed on some level and that is why I wanted to post it to the blog.

There is a game just like that but without the bee. i can't tell you if the puzzles themselves are harder because i only played the first level on this one but i really liked the other one, sorry i can't remember the name for you.

I believe that the other version called Xraye is by miniclip, and now it's on a lot of commercial sites like realarcade, they either stole the idea or got the same guy to make a version for them. It is VERY VERY similar, the levels are almost identical:
