Hook (video game)

Hook (video game)

"Hook" is the name of four unrelated video games released in 1992 that were based on the film of the same name.

"Hook" by Irem

In this arcade beat 'em up from Irem, the objective was to save Peter Pan's children from the evil Captain Hook. The player could choose to play as Pan or as one of the Lost Boys.

"Hook" by Sony Imagesoft/Ukiyotei

The player controlled Peter Banning through various side-scrolling levels on, yet again, a quest to save his children from Captain Hook.

The original Super Nintendo Entertainment System version was designed and developed by Ukiyotei. The Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and Sega Mega/Sega CD ports were handled by Core Design. The Sega Game Gear port was handled by Spidersoft (this was also supposed to be released for the Sega Master System; a prototype exists). All versions were published by Sony Imagesoft and were essentially identical; however, the Sega CD version had the musical score from the film and better cut scenes with voice actors and digital stills.


="Hook" by Sony Imagesoft/Ocean=

Ocean developed this side-scrolling platformer, different from the Sony/Ukiyotei game, for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Nintendo Game Boy. Sony Imagesoft published both versions.

"Hook" by Ocean/Shadow Software

This was the first and only adventure game published by Ocean, following roughly the plot of the movie.

Developed by Shadow Software and released for the Amiga, Atari ST, and DOS, the game was a point and click adventure. The initial pirate setting of Neverland brings to mind the "Monkey Island" series. The main objective was to escape the Pirate City, reach the Lost Boys' hideout and try to become Peter Pan in order to fight once more with Captain Hook.
