Dangle is an action game released in July 2007. It was Nitrome's first game sponsored by MTV Arcade. The player controls a small black spider with the goal of reaching the bottom ground before running out of hearts. The gameplay in this game heavily influenced the gameplay of the future game Swindler and it's sequel.

Gameplay

The player controls a spider and has to make their way safely to the ground. Enemies will attempt to hurt them, subtracting one of the player's three hearts. Losing all three hearts initiates a game over screen.

Levels

There are 15 levels in Dangle. Each level starts with the spider hanging from a short string. The player's goal is to swing past platforms and enemies and reach the bottom of the level without losing all three hearts.

Interactive objects

  • Hearts - This will replenish a heart.
  • Coins - When the spider swings into them, they grant the player points.
  • Platforms - These are the obstacles that the spider can land on, although some may have enemies walking on it. In order to reach the bottom, however, the spider has to swing past them.
  • Fans - These blow the spider in a certain direction.

Enemies

Enemies must be avoided as there is no way of defeating them. If the spider accidentally swings into one, the spider will lose a heart.

  • Mr. blows - They blow air when they meet the end of a platform.
  • Squid creatures - They move horizontally in the air.
  • Mr. stabs - They jump up at the spider when the player is close.
  • Mr. snips - When it reaches the end of a platform, it will stretch out one claw and close it, cutting anything in its way.
  • Gobble spawns - It will slowly go down the webbing the player is on, but will fall off if it doesn't reach the spider. It will kill the spider if it reaches it.
  • Mr. gobble - Walks horizontally on platforms, spawns a gobble spawn on the player's wire on contact with their webbing.

Hazards

  • Spikes - They cover certain platforms and the player must be careful to avoid swinging into them.

Gallery

Beta content

Present in the game's image files are two images consisting of text, one image reading MUSIC_GAME and another reading MUSIC_MENU . Both likely are remnants of some sort of level editor. Also, all the enemies and hazards in the game are named, although their names are never visible during gameplay.

Trivia

  • The letters spelling "DANGLE" on the game's menu can be swung in any direction, bouncing back to their original position once let go of.
    • Spoiler
      The letters of the words of the ending ("WELL DONE") can also be stretched and bounced around.
  • The gameplay of the game is similar to Swindler's gameplay. Both games involve characters that have a cord which they use to swing through the level.
  • The health bar heart icons are the same as the health bar heart icons seen in Jelly Beanstalk.
