Peter Banningthrough various side-scrolling levels on, yet again, a quest to save his children from Captain Hook.
Super Nintendo Entertainment Systemversion 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 Gearport 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 Systemand Nintendo Game Boy. Sony Imagesoft published both versions.
"Hook" by Ocean/
This was the first and only
adventure gamepublished 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 clickadventure. The initial piratesetting of Neverlandbrings 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.
