OverviewOverview

Heave Ho is a game where up to four players try and swing themselves across a level. But you can only hang on to certain points and must dangle and swing with both arms to progress. The twist is that you can also hold hands with other players and make long chains to get across wide gaps. Or you can let go at just the right time to throw each other where you need to be.

There are co-operative, competitive and single player modes to play with up to four players. You can customize your character with all manner of stylish accessories and zany accoutrement in a vain attempt to remember who you are and which of your hands is the only thing between you and the plummet of doom.
