    Genesis Meka Grappler X

    Grab enemies with your spaceship's hook and throw them at each other in this little but fun game! Play solo to see how long you last, or get help from a friend while also competing to get the highest score! (I totally did not copypaste from the itch.io page)

    :O)

    In case anybody wonders: the joke is that the game is so extremely minimalistic it wouldn't be worth a cartridge release at all. It's a legit game otherwise. It took about a week to make.

    Damn, I almost missed it just reading the title, thinking it's just an update of Master System Emulator Meka or such.
    Actually I like its minimalistic, as long as the game's fun. And this one is fun.
    If what I want a deep complex game I'd play next gen console games. For retro console games, I'd prefer something like this.

    I had a quick play of this last night, its quite fun and the transparency effect is pretty cool. Maybe we should have a little contest on here to see who can get the highest score?

    Wow, OK then I won't bother posting a screenshot of my embarrassingly low score of 42100. This game reminds me a little of Asteroids, which is a game I used to be pretty good at. Meka Grappler gets quite addictive, great game.

    Don't worry, the highest scores in that table are mostly a fluke. I know somebody did over 100,000 (precisely trying to beat my score) but I forgot the exact amount. EDIT: 112,760 points.

    Thanks a lot for another cool little game, Sik!

    Any chance of adding a tournament (maybe with elimination by scoring) mode for 4 players, for an example?

    Really great game, Sik! It's challenging and addictive. To me, something about Meka Grappler X's art style and arcade gameplay feels like it would translate well to a platform like the Neo Geo MVS. Neo Grappler X?

    Great work!

    The exaggerated name and the large logo in the title screen are probably what's doing it. Then you go into the game and it's a wash in comparison :​O​)

    I really should attempt to beat my current highscore.
