The protagonist in Rope Z is a little blue character named "Z". Z loves ropes and uses them with a grappling hook to get into impossible to reach places.
There is only one thing that Z likes more than ropes and that is treasure. Z will risk great danger searching for treasure. But with great risk comes great reward and the thrill of discovery.
Rope Z is a 2.5D platformer where the aim is to find the treasure before the clock runs down. The primary method for moving your character is swinging on a rope like spider man. The game mechanics really capture the feeling of swinging and free fall.
You can go slow and keep things carefully under control, Or, you can cut loose and move through the level at a rapid pace keeping Z moving through the air swinging from rope to rope with your expert timing and reflexes.
