    Mikey Hooks takes the casual speedrun formula of Mikey Shorts, and adds grappling hooks for more addictive speedrun fun. Speedfun!

    Retaining the same style and spot-on controls as the original, Mikey Hooks adds grappling hooks, more obstacles, and a damage mechanic that adds a great deal of challenge and makes the sequel a standout hit.

    You’ll play every level over and over again to get those three stars, and after your friends manage to beat your scores, you’ll play the levels again. It’s just that much fun.

    It fires on all cylinders, and if you're a fan of the previous games you don't even need this review to determine if you should get it or not–you probably have already bought it.

    Mikey Hooks' only real hiccup is that the controls aren't perfect. I know, I know, I said that they are some of the best platforming controls I've had the pleasure to play on a touch-screen - but they're still not spot-on. The sliding in particular feels irksome at times, especially on the later levels which require far more precision thanks to the plethora of spikes and traps scattered about the place.

    Mikey Shorts did a lot for the platforming market last year, and for just under two bucks, Mikey Hooks does even better with a new mode, a great new gameplay tactic and that same wonderful presentation from the original. One play and you'll be, ahem, hooked.
