    The Free Ones puts the grapple gameplay mechanic above all else, which manages to produce enough thrills and momentum to carry the game to its conclusion, across chasms where story and presentation should be.

    Indie platformer The Free Ones currently struggles with the absence of simply too many game essentials to be forgiven. Its fast-paced grappling action does lend a touch of excitement to its otherwise stagnant gameplay, and its potential, while imprisoned now, could be unleashed with future developer updates.

  1. I think, streamlined significantly, with the repetition removed, this could have been a really neat two-to-three hour game. Instead, with so much that feels like padding, it gives all the mistakes so much space to become a problem. It’s often a lot of fun to grapple and leap about in, but it’s always too quickly spoiled by something else.

This game provides all the excitement from swinging through beautiful environments while using your wits to pick the best routes to travel across hazardous terrain. Think of it as Just Cause without the explosions. Highly recommended. Expand

    Was not fun. The movement is OK and free flowing, but did not feel polished at all. Bored after an hour or so.

    Do not recommend.
