Rocketcat Announces New 99¢ Hooking Game ‘Hook Swing Worlds’

Developer Rocketcat Games, who have previously brought the swinging adventure games Hook Champ [$2.99/Lite] and Super QuickHook [$2.99] to the App Store, have just announced they have a new hooking game in the works titled Hook Swing Worlds (tentative title). According to the Rocketcat blog, Hook Swing Worlds will be a collection of three different style endless hooking games, which sounds similar to the Avalanche/Eruption modes from Super QuickHook. The developer has given some details about each of the three game styles to be featured in Hook Swing Worlds:

Game World #1: Curse of the Death God

Play as adventuring family patriarch Theodore “Gramps" Hooker as you swing through jungles, caves, and volcanoes while clutching stolen treasure. Beware the guardian spirit of the idol!

Features: Chaser Survival, Quick Recharge Rocketboots Ability

Game World #2: Dungeon Gunner

Zelle finds herself trapped in a huge dungeon filled with precious, ancient gold coins. Also monsters, spikes. Luckily she brought her revolver, armor, and her coat with the really big ammo pockets.

Features: Looting and Shooting, HP Meter, Revolver Ability

Game World #3: CyberGnome 202X (Early content patch)

In the grim dystopian world of the future, the Gnome Police rule with an iron fist. One rebel Gnome stands alone against the totalitarian rule. Can *YOU* help Gnomey escape the grim future?

Features: Obstacle Survival, Gravity Flip Ability

Rocketcat notes that they are aiming to make Hook Swing Worlds more accessible to brand new players of their particular brand of swinging gameplay, while still bringing new challenges to test veteran hookers. Also, despite Hook Swing Worlds being a collection of endless survival type games, there will still be story elements as well as unlockable hooks, hats, dialog, and exclusive content for early buyers. Rocketcat will be releasing more information in the coming weeks on Hook Swing Worlds which they are shooting to have released by late October for 99¢.
