Hook Champ - New Trailers + Upcoming Release Sale

Hook Champ is a retro inspired adventure-platformer about using your grappling hook to swing through haunted ruins. Complicating this are the specter-like guardians of the ancient artifacts you're stealing. To help you survive, you can buy character upgrades using treasure you collect. This includes buying new hats and items like rocket powered boots or the thrice-blessed shotgun.

The game has already been submitted to Apple. When the game is released, we're going to have a 66% off sale. The price of the game for the opening weekend will just be 99 cents. This will be the biggest sale we'll have for the game, so get it while it's hot.

Until the game's available for the app store, I'll be posting trailers to this thread. I'll also be around to answer any questions. Hope you like youtube videos. Newest videos at the top:

I was fortunate enough to beta test this, and I truly love it. One of my all time favorites so far.

To tell you the truth I definitely turned a blind eye on this but since pharmx said this is one of his all time favorites seems like I have to check this out once its out.

There's just something really satisfying about swinging through the caves, especially when you get on a roll with the right timing for the grapple/reel/swing. There's also some really good replay elements like going back through previously finished levels to get money to upgrade equipment. Plus online leaderboards for bragging rights, a good dose of humor, and retro graphics that bring back nostalgic memories. It may not be for everyone, but I really love this one It took me a little bit to get the hang of swinging fluidly, but once you learn how, it's a ton of fun.

Sad to say I didn't even give it the time of the day because of the first screenshots. Hopefully others don't make the mistake as I did, from reading the descriptions sounds to be a very interesting game.

Great Game

As soon as I saw this game was in need of beta testers I instanly joined. One of my favourite game on my iPhone. You should pick this one up. The physics are great and graphics and slot nicer than the video makes them look. Buy it and you won't be disapointed
