    Due to the new characters and items, Tobe & Friends is an amazing update of the original Hookshot Escape, and one of the best vertical scrolling platformers in the App Store.

    Whether you've played a Tobe title before or not, Hookshot Escape is a great time-waster that knows that variety is the spice of life; a real challenge that constantly rewards the player for their progress.

    Tobe & Friends' Hookshot Escape is a fine game and I say this with only a minimal amount of bias – a Dragon Punch-enabled character just makes things so much better.

    I love grappling hooks, and this game is chock-full of hooking action.

    A tightly paced, furiously addictive endless climber that plunders those arcade classics for more than just rose-tinted window dressing.

    It's an uphill climb, that's for sure, but one that keeps you coming back for more despite its pitfalls.

    It's a little too easy to get far fast though. [May 2012, p.29]
