If you’re looking for a challenging platformer game, Tobe’s Hookshot Escape will fill your needs, and it has a free trial that lets you experience almost all of the game before buying it!

Overall Score: 3/5

The controls are a bit tricky to get used to, but the gameplay, presentation, and lasting value are alright.

Gameplay: 3/5

Prepare to be challenged! Ascending all of the platforms in the game is quite tough, especially because you have to move fast or else you’ll fall of the screen. The controls are likewise tough to get used to, which makes the game a little less fun. However, trying to master the game is very fun since it is so tough. There’s also some great power-ups in the game, like jetpacks and hookshot extensions! It has some great gameplay, but the controls could definitely use some touching up.

Presentation: 4/5

This game looks pretty good, and sounds really good too! The visuals are arcade-inspired, but look clean and effective. The music fits well with the theme of the game and is a great addition to the experience.

Lasting Value: 3/5

Until the developer updates the game with another character and a new level, the lasting value is mediocre. The developer is planning to update the app soon, which is good news. An online leaderboard would help too, but the game does have achievements of its own to compete for.
