Hook champ shopping guide?

Hi guys
By saving money, I'm downloading games I've previously paid for. It's turning out well. Anyway I recently re-downloaded hook champ (I got it when it first came out and hated it, but I barely gave it a chance) and I was wondering:

Apart from the grappling hook, rope and pick-up-stuff-near-you thing, is anything else worth getting?

The rest all seems useless to me, but I have only just completed the second level.

Thanks
Ell

You'll need the rocket boots and having fast shoes and shotgun helps but are not absolutley needed

Well, the first things I always maxed out were Rope & Hook, then Rocket Boots become necessary [at least level 3 I think] and the Shotgun comes in handy too. As for the rest of what I can remember, the Loot Vacuum is nice once you have it upgraded a lot, Running Shoes are nice when you miss grappling onto something, and to this day I have no idea what the Husk Musk or whatever the name is does lol.

All the hats are super necessary! It's all about hats. Spend all your monies on them, and you won't look back!

loot vacuum is handy, also maxed out rocket boots cuz I always messed up on the last Bull idol levels.
I never really used shotgun, in the harder levels you'll always be jumping over lava pits anyway. I haven't done the skull and rat levels yet though so I can't say for those

I was about to ask if all the hats had any effect until I saw this

Oh, and if you don't buy yourself the mustache the game will delete itself after a few days

Shotgun is extremely helpful, if not required for rat idol. The chaser in that one is ridiculous
