You're an intrepid explorer with a grappling hook and more than a dash of acrobatic prowess. How better, then, to transverse the rocky landscape of an underground cavern than by using your grappling hook to swing Tarzan-like over the obstacles below? Along your way you'll discover lots. Build up momentum and you'll be travelling faster than ever.

Get fancy hats

Get fancy hats. To motivate you to hook high scores, Hook Champ includes achievements and leaderboards that you're challenged to unlock and conquer. There are also character upgrades and fancy hats to spend your loot on.

What is it about?

This is a classic physics platformer in which gamers must swing through "haunted ruins," catching treasure as they go, in order to succeed. There are character upgrades, support for leaderboards, and collectibles for players to pick up en route. The application also features gloriously retro pixellated graphics, and each level poses its own unique challenges.

For those who...

  • Love physics games for iOS.
  • Enjoy retro graphics and sound effects.
  • Like to jump in and out of iOS games for minutes (or even hours) at a time.

Not for those who...

  • Expect high-res graphics from their iOS titles.
  • Struggle with physics-based controls in games.

Why we love it

This is an App Store swinging classic. We've seen the formula repeated elsewhere, but Hook Champ is the original and for this reason it's definitely worth checking out. It's feature-rich and an all-round good laugh. There's a lot to like here.

It's not as easy as it looks in the movies. Pull it off with skill, and you'll be rewarded with tons of treasure. Use those coins to deck yourself out with new and better tools, open up new treasure caves, and buy new hats, outfits, and characters.

- Simple to Learn: Just tap where you want your hook to go, and you’ll be swinging to victory.
- Treacherous Caves: Venture through water-logged ruins, magma-filled caverns, and more!
- Ghost Races: Race against your own best runs and see if you can stay ahead of yourself!
