Just today I was thinking about how much fun the grappling mechanic in Rock Runners is, and how sad I was that none of the Quick Hook games are Universal or support iPhone 5, when I read THIS.

Such great news, and great timing as well! Insta-buy.

Hook Worlds is getting a Universal/iPhone 5 update in March. If we're able to, some possible problems with old device support. If not, we plan on making a new, separate version for widescreen/iPad support.

Oh sweet! : ) I loved those games way back on my iPhone 3G and 4.

Come on guys, isn't there room for more in the hooking-and-swinging genre?! Peace and love!

Hey Mikes, I could not be more pumped for this game. Mikey Shorts was robbed for GOTY in my opinion, and was easily the most fun I've had on my phone since probably SQH.

May i ask what price point you are considering- I really feel that at 99c the first one was far too cheap. I'd love to see it around the 2.99 mark with maybe a unique hat (or hook) as an early buyer's bonus. (It feels ridiculous saying 2.99 is reasonable when I got more fun/playtime out of Mikey Shorts than I have with some AAA titles at $60-80 a pop).
