Brief Play Description: 

The two ships exist in a side-scrolling 2D world. The tether between the ships acts as chain, including distinct links. When the ships draw close together, it can become slack. If they separate to make the tether taut while it is in contact with an object, the game’s physics permit them to fling that object away.
