Wheeler’s Treasure

An innovative title; not quite a platformer, not quite a racer, not quite anything really, but it is fun. The player character propels themselves through the side-scrolling level in a giant hamster wheel, collecting coins, bouncing on enemies and treasure chests, and avoids obstacles like tar pits and lava. This is accomplished by grappling to a solid section of the wheel and riding it up to collect goodies. Your grapple has a cooldown, so timing is important. If you take too much damage, you can stop off at water holes to heal. It’s all very strange, but still compelling.
