Noodlecake Studios' Mikey Hooks is one of those classically-inspired platformers that makes you believe in the genre again, no matter how much you've played it in the past. Simple gameplay, fast-paced and responsive controls, different environments and customization. A cocktail for success.
Just like other platformers, the goal in Mikey Hooks is to quickly get the end of the level alive with as many coins as you can collect on the way. Spikes, monsters and gaps are put between Mikey and his goals. You must help him achieve it: run, jump, slide and hook to avoid them and cross the end line with flying colors. If you did it as expected, you'll get, apart from the collected coins, three stars.
Mikey Hooks' world is made of 36 levels and 6 unique environments. There are lot of achievements to unlock and over 220 fun disguises to combine. The "Bonus Menu" is one of its added-value features. There you can unlock bonus options (via in-app purchase) such as a large coin magnet and the hilarious "retro graphics" option, which pixelizes the game.
Graphics are simple yet cute with a nostalgic touch that brings you back to the golden age of platformers. Expect extremely responsive controls and humor in abundance. Only one catch worth mentioning: the game isn't difficult to beat. It should be enhanced in that regard, either by increasing difficulty gradually or by adding more level packs.
Regardless, Mikey Hooks is the platformer you should install next.
