Incredible Swing Platformer!

I love the swing mechanic of Hook Champ, it just feels right.

Add to that incredible level design, upgradable items and collectables and you have a fun, challenging and incredibly complete satisfying game experience.

Hook Champ is a retro throwback to when games were challenging and completing a level was rewarding! The fun swing mechanic will keep you playing and the items make replaying the game levels all the more fun.

Hook Champ is the real deal, incredible game bravo Rocketcat! Bravo!

Not good enough to pay $2.99 for the full version

I like the game... but come on. it's a 16-bit NES looking/playing game. I've paid $.99 for a lot more in a game.

Love it

Awesome game!!! I suggest you get the full version!
