When the powers that be try and regulate the dangerous, but exciting underground sport of grappling hook soccer, it’s up to you to defend the sport!
Players swing around an arena using grappling hooks, trying to score goals with a giant ball. Along the way they smash into each other, sometimes losing limbs in the process…
Play against friends locally, online, or play solo through a Super Meat Boy inspired single player story.
Swing Striker is an epic futuristic sport with easy to pick up/hard to master gameplay and a backstory that’s out of this galaxy!
Back in 2012, Giant Fox Studios created a Flash game called Swing Soccer. The original game had mostly programming art in it and never felt quite right to play with just keyboard controls. However, the gameplay itself was extremely sticky and the game now has over 20 million plays across the web. Sadly, we didn’t profit much from the success as we were still new to the industry at the time and didn’t know how to monetize a Flash game well.
In 2018, some of the Giant Fox Studios team decided it was time to recreate the game the way it was always meant to be- for Steam/console. They added gamepad controls, a huge art revamp, backstory/lore, voice acting, a Super Meatboy inspired single player mode, and even online play since then. The new version of the game has already been shown at a few expos and is currently running a beta test on G.Round (Feb 2022).
We’ll continue to test, improve the game, and add in new features like weekly challenges, emojis, leaderboards, a longer single player mode, an in-game store for characters, levels, and seasonal content to keep players coming back. This project is 100% self-funded at the moment.
