Super QuickHook is the sequel to one of our favorite iPhone games of 2009, adding brand-new locations, new obstacles, and more fun and addictive gameplay.

As with Hook Champ, the object of the game is to swing from obstacle to obstacle using a grappling hook you shoot ahead of you by touching the screen to swing through levels. Super QuickHook adds a scrollable level-selection screen with new maps and environments, OpenFeint connectivity for high scores and leaderboards, and a new Endless Mode that challenges you to see how long you can last ahead of an avalanche.

With Hook Champ's popularity, this should be an easy purchase for fans and we think Super QuickHook definitely lives up to the first game. Each level shows scores and times for the developer, giving you a goal to work toward in each environment. You also can race against another online player's ghost or your own ghost from your previous best time. The game comes with 18 new levels, including the endless Avalanche level, and there are more new levels on the way.

Overall, we highly recommend this game to anyone who likes 2D side-scrolling arcade games or enjoyed playing Hook Champ. As an extra bonus, the nature of the old-school graphics in this game make it look quite good on the iPad even with pixel doubling (there is no iPad version as of this review).
