Description

Explore deep caves to find sacred idols and loot treasure - but watch out for the terrifying monsters, bats, traps and lava pits, all intending to spell doom for you! Can you use your trusty grappling hook to swing to safety and escape each perilous pit?

Hook Champ plays like a simplified version of the NES game Bionic Commando. If the player touches and holds the lower half of the screen, the character will run, while if they touch and hold the upper half of the screen, the character will throw out their grappling hook. While the player can run along the ground to progress, it is much quicker to continuously chain grappling swings, and considering you're being constantly chased by a monster, eager to gobble you up, you'll want to keep moving as fast as possible!

As you progress through the game, you'll earn coins. These can be used to purchase better grapples, running shoes, a jetpack, a shotgun, or fabulous hats. And everybody loves hats.
