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.


Hook Champ review!

this game is sick! i love the intro song and i really think that the developers should put other chip tune songs in each level in the next update. this game is a lot of fun for any type of gamer, wheather you're a casual gamer or more of the hardcore type. this app has a great NES type feel. the hook mechanic is a lot of fun once you get used to it. in each level you steal an ancient artifact and you get chased down by a ghost-type ghoul. with that being said, you can swing around and collect coins on your way to the end of each cave...these coins come in handy at the end of each level as you can visit the local shop and purchase upgrades to your hook and rope as well as various other types of upgrades, such as a shotgun, faster running shoes, tons of cool hats, etc. the game has a pretty great sense of humor and never takes itself too seriously. all in all, this game is very fun. i would recommend it to anyone looking to have a fun time for 10 minutes or even a couple of hours! i'm definitely going to purchase the full version. check it out! ---Silenthillvictim
