Get-A-Grip Chip

Redstart Interactive have announced a game for the Nintendo Switch: Get-A-Grip Chip, a grappling hook 2D platformer. It will be released on March 15th in Europe and North America for $14.99. It will be playable in English and Japanese.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:

Like any other day on the assembly line, Chip and Scan-It Janet happily build Battery Bots. When a factory mishap damages Janet’s circuitry, the discombobulated droid destroys the floor in a flash. Now it’s up to Chip to save the lost Battery Bots and help Janet return to her senses.

Any other wheeled, land-locked robot would find ascending ROBOCO daunting, but not this chap. Chip’s head-mounted magnetic grappling hook makes vertical traversal a breeze. Roll across platforms then launch the hook to acquaint Chip with a fun little thing called the Y-Axis. Get-A-Grip Chip’s satisfying single-button + dual joystick control scheme ensures challenge arises from intelligent, intuitive level design instead of wrestling with that darn controller. 

With more than 200 Battery Bots awaiting rescue across 30 lovingly-crafted levels through five diverse worlds, Chip’s got plenty of work to do. Master the hook and fling through the increasingly intense Assembly, Incinerator, Abandoned, Innovation, and Shipping floors. Chuck Chip over chainsaws, launch over lasers, and even escape chases with Scan-It Janet.

Some Bots wait in plain sight while others are hidden in secret rooms off the beaten path. Sure, Chip can beat the game by saving only 120 bots, but why stop there? Get-A-Grip Chip’s Switch debut and accompanying PC update introduces eight new cosmetic skins earned by completing various challenges. Dress up in solid gold or don a vampire outfit, then strut Chip’s stuff and push those skills even further with per-level leaderboards that encourage further mastery.

Navigating treacherous terrain never gets too stressful thanks to an aesthetic inspired by cute retro cartoons. An eclectic score courtesy of Eva Lawitts’ project Stimmerman propels the platforming to new heights with a toe-tapping mix of loungey jazz, hypnotic hip-hop, and even surf rock. And the best part? No head-mounted magnetic grappling hook required to headbang along. 

Get-A-Grip Chip (Switch – eShop) comes out on March 15th in Europe and North America.
