  • Summary: "[Gravity Hook HD] provides much of what I loved about Canabalt, only in a vertical climb instead of a side scrolling run... it really is a much better experience with your finger."- Touch Arcade"Gravity Hook became a high score-focused game that I could whip out and play any time, making it a title that'll be a mainstay on my Apple devices for a long time to come."- GamePro"...the presentation here is simple yet exquisite. With hand drawn backgrounds and lovingly-detailed nodes, the art direction manages to be a perfect fit. Baranowsky’s soundtracks are among the best in video games today..."- Gamezebo"...not only easier on the eyes, but easier to play as well."- Kotaku"You can feel the evolution of Semi Secret's reflex-intensive design ideas in [Gravity Hook HD]."- IFC.com"Like the [Canabalt], Gravity Hook HD is punishingly difficult and encourages a just-one-more-game mentality."- MTV Multiplayer"I can't say it's as fun or as simple as Canabalt, but it is colorful and addictive for sure."- TUAW Expand

    It's as frustrating as Canabalt, but much more skill-based-and another example of why the world needs many more grappling-hook-based games.

    There are no doubts that Gravity Hook HD is worth every cent you spent. Thanks to its tactile mechanics, online leaderboards and a hit-and-run gameplay, the new game from Adam Atomic is simply perfect on iPhone and iPod Touch, surprisingly better suited on the iDevices than Canabalt. Maybe a few more unlockable stuff would have been really welcomed.

    I had a lot of fun with both the HD and classic versions of the game. Once I put in the time to really get a handle on the controls, Gravity Hook became a high score-focused game that I could whip out and play any time, making it a title that'll be a mainstay on my Apple devices for a long time to come.

    Gravity Hook HD represents an intense shift in challenge from Semi Secret's earlier work, but if you have patience you'll be rewarded by an amazingly intriguing gameplay style.

    Gravity Hook HD has a uniquely punishing brand of gameplay that slaps you away with its difficulty, but reels you back in with a fine presentation and excellent unlockable mode.

    Gravity Hook HD has an excellent concept, but needs to find a happy medium between its two modes before it can be fully realized.

    Gravity Hook HD is a no go for me. I love casual games-Flight Control, Infect them All, Fruit Ninja-but Gravity Hook HD is way too difficult, repetitive, and frustrating to actually get the hang of.
