GDC 2016: Dizzying VR platformer Swing Stars wins second prize at the GDC 2016 BIP

Swing Star
is a VR swingy platformer coming soon to Gear VR that impressed us so much it took home second prize at Pocket Gamer's GDC 2016 BIP.

You play as a young boy in a zany world who uses a massive grappling hand on a rope to swing between quirky floating objects.

The goal is to reach a massive bell at the end of a level, and there are usually a number of different routes you can take. If you want a perfect score, you're going to have to figure out the shortest route so expect some trial and error.



A bunch of new mechanics are drip fed as you progress throughout the game which keeps things interesting. We got stuck to jelly which prevent us from swinging and had to avoid a variety of different obstacles.

There's a pretty neat sense of momentum as you soar through the sky and the visuals are nice and colourful, invoking a similar feeling you get in platformers like Mario.

If you're a fan of the genre there's a lot to love here so keep an eye out for Swing Star when it launches soon on Gear VR.
