Hook Champ & The Incident

no comments yet, post one now

Hook Champ from Rocketcat games

I don’t usually recommend iPhone games here, but I stumbled upon Hook Champ a week ago and i’ve been ‘hooked’ since. It’s a speedy platform, jumping/swinging game with a classic 8-bit retro style. Its highly addictive and great fun in vs. mode, trying to outpace your competitor to the finish. Playing takes me on a nostalgic trip back to the excellent Rick Dangerous series on the Amiga.

I’ve also been reading the dev blog for The Incident another retro styled iPhone game due for release soon. It’s interesting to see how the developer (Matt Comi) approaches different aspects of the game on the iPhone SDK.

Scrounging for 10ps

Space Invaders

I took a visit to the Game:On Exhibition at London’s Science Musuem – £8 for 2hrs and all the Arcades and consoles are set on ‘free play’. Everything from the orginal Asteroids and Space Invaders machines, to Amiga classics and the current consoles. I took a few photos, but the Flickr group has loads more. Its well worth a visit if you are into this sort of thing, all the old cabinets took me years back to scrounging for 10ps at the Portrush arcades
