IGF 2010 Mobile Competition Entrant
Hook Champ [iPhone/iPod Touch]
Company: Rocketcat Games (Bremerton, WA United States)
Description: Hook Champ is a game about using your grappling hook to escape the guardians of cursed, ancient ruins. It's an action/adventure platformer, but also a racing game. Loot you get from the ruins can be used to develop your character and buy custom hats, so it's also a hat fashion simulator.
Designed from the ground up for replay value, every level in Hook Champ has its own scoreboard. You can perfect your times and then compete against others. In an iPhone first, you can send challenges to friends, who will then be able to race against a ghostly copy of your character.
To help provide new experiences each replay, upgrades in an in-game shop allow you to revisit old levels to find new secrets and alternate paths. Perfecting your grappling hookery lets you unlock new hats, new characters, and new levels. More unlocks and features are added through continual updates to the game.
With all the above, a retro inspired style, and the most hat customization on the market, Hook Champ is a full-featured and innovative game on the iPhone.
