Hook is a side scrolling platform game based on the movie. There are two things I found puzzling in this game in my short time playing it. The first is why doesn’t your sword do anything? I am not exaggerating it doesn’t do anything! You can stab people from point blank range and all that happens is YOU get hit. What the fuck? The second is how you beat the levels!? There seems to be an ending, but how do you activate it? The cave level says to get food and something about Thud Butt… Is that the objective?
I suppose these things would become clear after playing the game for a while. Other than that confusion, the graphics are pretty good (other than aids-zombie Peter Pan), the animation is smooth and it has music. The controls aren’t terrible or anything and it seems to have a large overworld and a story. How can a kid complain?
