Try to keep your ragdoll-style swinging character as intact as you can until you reach the finishing line.
Very good timing skills and hand-eye coordination are the keys to success, as you have to carefully choose the correct moment to swing from one rope to the next. Carefully swinging through gaps, and over obstacles, becomes increasingly tricky as you progress. You have to master the physics and movement of your adjustable ropes as quickly as possible, otherwise you could lose control and smash off the rock wall – ouch!
