Gravity Hook HD

I can't be the only one addicted to the flash version....
Share your high scores, impressions, general banter about the game

My best so far is 887m, I'm sure you guys have got triple that already

Sorry if this belongs in the upcoming games section, thought here was more appropriate seeing as the flash version is already out.

In case you missed it...

Or I could just carry on playing this flash version whilst I wait and not spend unnecessary money

.. or just go download Ascent from the app store. It is free today and almost identical to Gravity Hook. Faster game play too.. and open feint.

Cheers!

Thanks for the suggestions, downloaded and tried Ascent but it seems to have a really weird bug, getting catapulted upwards for no reason; or maybe I'm missing some part of the gameplay (as the tutorial was a minute of blank video).

Plus most of the time I'm just tapping the middle of the top of the screen. That's boring.

You get catapulted up when you tap a RED dot.. that's a booster mine. How far have you got? It gets pretty hard after 100 000 points.. you definitely need to think a bit what you are tapping.

Like I said, the gameplay is faster but it's definitely not easy.

Cheers!

Frong looks pretty damn good, and affordable. And it has a 5 star rating on iTunes.

Ah okay, confused me a bit because I must have hit a few of them, got catapulted from the dirt into space.
Not sure what the score was, for some reason when I re-opened the game it hadn't saved my high score

It's kinda funny that the gameplay is faster, because it takes longer for it to become challenging, making the overall game experience slower. Like how Doodle Jump works.

With all that said, I'm still playing the game occasionally, whether it's just because it's like GH or if it has it's own merits I'm not sure yet; but thanks for the recommendation.

i liked the flash version but it felt slow, though i'm pretty sure it'll be faster on the ipod/iphone
