This is one of our favorite games here at Lost Classics. Umihara Kawase is a side scrolling action game with some puzzle elements thrown in. The goal of each stage is just to simply get to the exit. In the way are gigantic fish, salamanders and other assorted enemies. Lucky for you Umihara is equipped with a grappling hook with a fishing lure on the end. Umihara Kawase can use the grappling hook to swing across ceilings and pull herself to otherwise unreachable areas. She can also use it to stun enemies and shove them in her backpack.
Yes it's weird, but it's also awesome.
