Optimization is poor, unfortunately, though understandable. Didn't figure out how to progress to next level (record time seems too high for an entry level), graphical bugs after playing for a while. Other than that it was a fun experience!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Use your grappling hook to hurtle through the air and complete the course in record time!
Move the mouse to aim and click to grapple.
Press WASD to boost in a direction.
If you hold the mouse button down, the grappling hook will automatically attach to the next surface that comes in range.
If you play through the itch.io app, you can participate in the online leaderboards.
This was an entry for OpenJam 2020.

Thanks for giving it a try @Hamzak! I’ve found that turning off SS Reflections (in the settings menu) can help a lot with performance. It will be off by default in the next release. Turning off motion blur can help too, and worst-case you can reduce resolution (though admittedly I need to do some optimization too).
The second level is actually disabled because it wasn’t quite ready yet. I don’t plan on barring entry based on your record times, those are there more as a goal. Also, the next release will feature online leaderboards when you play through the itch.io app, which hopefully will provide more variety in record times.
Mind sharing what graphical glitches you encountered?
Sorry for the delay (mail considered notification a spam so...). There is the bug I was talking about and it was quite easy to reproduce. Just playing through the level, back to title, play again, back to title and bam:
