    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.

    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.

    Mikey Hooks delivers the same gameplay from its predecessor, but adds a new layer to the experience thanks to the grappling hook.

    Mikey Hooks is a worthwhile successor to Mikey Shorts that's short, but a rush while it lasts.

    The controls are spot on and the levels are short enough for quick bursts of play. I would have liked to see a bit more variety in the levels and some actual challenge, but there’s a foundation here that BeaverTap Games can easily work on for future Mikey games.
