Umihara Kawase thread!

Wow, it's hard to believe the old (archived) Umihara thread is over two years old. I've come a long way since then…


Umihara Kawase is a platforming game with a unique premise; you have a springy fishing line that's also a grappling hook, and you can propel yourself with it. You can fling yourself pretty far if you get enough momentum, think of it like a rubber band.

The game is huge. There's about fifty levels that are all spread out in kind of a tree-like pattern, you won't see every level in one playthrough.

The game is hard. Expect to see the game over screen a dozen times before you even catch a glimpse of the final boss, and a dozen times more when you do.

The game is fun! I've never played anything like it.

It's for SNES, and there's also a sequel on Playstation. And a port of both games on the DS.

Oh God! I love that game so much!
Never knew there was more than one. I'll have to check that out.


Yes, the sequel is Umihara Kawase Shun. There's two versions of it, the superior updated version has "Second Edition" in the title.

I really want this game. Someday I want to have the world speed record.



Pretty good, but obviously not meant to be a speedrun. I mean he collects extra lives, that's a huge red flag of "not a speedrun."

I really like the music, too. It's cheerful and soothing.


Argh… I've been trying to record my own run, trying to show off how speedy I can be, but it's always when you're on camera that you start making the stupidest mistakes…

So, I did some digging on the net, and I found the album.


Track 7 is god tier, it has this relaxing slowness that's so different from the rest of the soundtrack.

I really don't care much for Shun's soundtrack. It's so half-assed, there's only four stage BGM's and they all sound pretty similar. The original had six stage BGM's that all sound different.

My copy just arrived today. I've tried both games out, and they're awesome on DS. It also includes art and music galleries as bonus swag.

I bet I can't use that Club Nintendo code.

So, apparently, we're getting a new one this summer:
Polygonal Umi looks a little strange to me, but the game looks fantastic. It looks like they've made the line springier.



Some cool techniques he has

Never heard of this game before, looks like a trip

I own this too. Love this game.
