    ********

Every game world has its own all-new setting, every character has its own gameplay style. Every world is also randomized, varied, and endless, for incredible replay value.

    SIMPLE BUT POWERFUL CONTROLS:

    There are just two buttons. The right button controls your grappling hook, letting go detaches your hook. The left button controls the unique special ability in each game world. These simple controls will let you nimbly swing, dive, climb, run, slide, and shoot, rocketjump, or flip gravity!

    FOUR GAMES IN ONE:

    Swing your way through the Cursed Jungle as Gramps, as you try to escape the Ancient Watcher. Shoot your way through a haunted cove as Zelle, in your pursuit of bounties and treasure. Escape a grim future dystopia as CyberGnome 202X, using your gravity flips to evade the Gnome Cops. Early buyers also instantly get the fourth world, a tribute to both Atari/C64 games and falling onto lethal spikes!

    YES, THAT'S RIGHT, CYBERGNOME 202X. AND MORE:

    Rewards you can unlock and wear to customize your characters, visible on the scoreboards. Medal awards and achievements for reaching high score milestones. Blowing up haunted crabs and getting obliterated by a gigantic eye. All of the above and more, for the permanent price of 99 cents.

    Offering 4 different game modes featuring endless high score runs with the same well-implemented control mechanics we know and love, Hook Worlds further solidifies Rocketcat as the king of swing.

    If you ever felt intimidated by Rocketcat's previous hooking games, or you're already an established hooker looking for a new fix, then you'll want to give Hook Worlds a shot.

    If you've been looking to get into the series but haven't tried it yet, or loved Super QuickHook's endless modes, this is a perfect pickup.

    It's an enjoyable and well-crafted continuation of Rocketcat's series, but Hook Worlds never really innovates beyond the series' token grappling hook gameplay gimmick.

    Hook Worlds doesn't feature the same depth as the original titles, however the trade-off is the ability to jump right in to the wonderful endless gameplay with three unique challenges and a fourth super-hard mode to master.

    Hook Worlds is a great collection of endless high-score games, but it's lacking all of the depth of Hook Champ or Super QuickHook.

    Despite its steep difficulty curve, Hook Worlds offers up a fun time waster that's worth its pocket money price.
