[ Please note this is a very old version of the game made in 6 days as part of Fishing Jam 2. I am actively working on the game and you can follow my progress on Twitter ]

Hook, Line and Thinker by Connor Halford (@rhythm_lynx)

Use the arrow keys to move and Z to reel in your hook. X to restart the level, S to return to the menu.

If you're curious, I wrote a devlog every day of the jam, which you can read here.

is level 6 impossible?


Is there a way to go back one step?


No, you have to reel it all the way back in. This was done intentionally to discourage players from brute-forcing the solutions and instead force more thoughtful, slower, confident movement. It is a little punishing at first though, or when you inevitably hit the wrong key by mistake.

love the concept. Really great concept for the jam :D

Very nice, I like this idea!


Great job!
