A few weeks back Rocketcat Games, creators of Hook Champ [$2.99/Lite] and Super Quick Hook [$2.99], announced yet another hooking title for the iOS platform titled Hook Swing Worlds. Now called just Hook Worlds, this new game will contain three different variations of endless hooking action, all featuring some elements from Rocketcat's previous games.
Essentially three games in one, the first game in Hook Worlds stars Theodore "Gramps" Hooker swinging through different locations while being chased by a guardian spirit, similar to the original Hook Champ. The second game features Hook Champ's downloadable darling Zelle as she collects coins while using a shooting ability to take out barriers and enemies. The final game in the trio features a futuristic version of Super Quick Hook's Gnomey character as he dodges obstacles by hooking and using a gravity flipping mechanic that is inspired by fellow developer We Are Colin's own pixel based running game Gravity Runner [99¢].
All of these different game elements are displayed beautifully in the brand new trailer for Hook Worlds:
Rocketcat is shooting for an early November release for Hook Worlds at a price of 99¢, with a special early buyer bonus in the form of a fourth hooking world inspired by the Atari and C64 era. As Kepa Auwae of Rocketcat puts it in our forums, this world is their "lowest bit world ever". For those that don't pick up the game during the early bonus period, this fourth world will be available as an unlockable after the game's first update. Other update plans include additional hats and costumes for the different characters, and depending on how well Hook Worlds does there can be additional worlds added to the game in the future.
Being a huge fan of Super Quick Hook and especially Hook Champ, the release of Hook Worlds really can't come soon enough. Drop into the upcoming games thread in our forums where Kepa is dropping additional info on the game, and we'll keep you up to date on any new info regarding Hook Worlds as it nears release.
