Mikey Hooks

JohnBBeaverTap Games has a pleasant surprise in store for you. Mikey Hooks is a fast-paced grappling game along the lines of Hanger or Rocketcat's Super QuickHook and Hook Worlds. It combines elements of platforming with a swinging mechanic, challenging you to race through several dozen levels as you attempt to best your previous times while collecting coins scattered across the stage. Even though it's an action game on a device that lacks physical buttons, you'll find Mikey Hooks plays smoothly without a hint of frustration.

Mikey HooksUse the on-screen buttons to control Mikey, moving left and right with the arrows and using the blue and red buttons to slide and jump. When a hook point is nearby, the jump button doubles as a grapple button, allowing you to reach out and swing without skipping a beat. You'll need to use this to avoid obstacles, dodge spiney foes, and reach certain areas that are no doubt loaded with coins to collect.

The hooking/swinging mechanic is quite elegantly done, working seamlessly into gameplay without making things needlessly complex. The music is superb, and even though the difficulty is higher than average, the game somehow manages to reel you in to keep trying for a better score. Later levels really get into the swinging mechanic, and when you pull off a touch jump followed by a slick swing, you'll feel like the best gamer in the world. For that feeling alone, Mikey Hooks is worth the ride!
