It's an amazing puzzle game with a beautiful soundtrack.

I've beaten the game twice. It was a bit hard because the music always made me cry. So wonderful...!
No kidding, this happened to me all the time! I'm too sensitive... :'(

Thank you for everything!

relaxing ambient sound (my GF likes it ... like in her favorite Spa :-) )
relaxing puzzle gameplay

right thing after a hard day at work

would like to have more puzzles, but you can't go wrong with a price of just 0,99 € (a coffee is more expensive)

2hrs of puzzels for a dollar, good value. Enjoyable as is.

RPS has a fair write up.

Could it have been more? Sure, but would have cost more. All in all a very good value.

A small/cheap and actually okay game to play, I'd say that this game is perfect for time killing and it is also quite fun as you go farther in completing puzzles and such. I'd really reccomend this game to others that enjoy puzzle games.

Way too easy and not so entertaining; I finished it in 45 minutes and I'm not feeling like I accomplished something.
It's more about following the lines with the mouse pointer than thinking about the solution.
Luckily it's really cheap.

Short, simple, no frills. Enjoyable for the short time I played it. Worth a dollar and some of your time.

I'd love to see more like this.

Hook is a simple game if you have nothing to do and like to puzzle.

Starts off easy, But soon your brain is working faster then on your final school exams,

Its a short game, But a lot of fun. Well where are you waiting for?

OVERVIEW
HOOK, a short 50 level puzzle game with a minimalistic art style. It was developed by Maciej Targoni and Wojciech Wasiak, and published by Rainbow Train. With a calming atmosphere and a casual gameplay experience it is a must get.

PROS
+ Steam Achievements
+ Steam Trading Cards
+ Relaxing
+ Easy To Run On Any Computer
+ Simple And Effective Graphics

CONS
- Short (Estimated Time: 1.5-2 Hours)
- Not Anything Else To Do After You Finish

CONCLUSION
This game is an easy game to play, with more than enough hard puzzles to keep you wanting more. As soon as you get stuck on the later levels, the moment you complete it makes you want to keep going. Around level 40, where the game really picks up, you also get 3 "lives" so if you mess up you won't have to restart immediately. This can help you get through those hard parts with less of a rage inducing fail.

I would recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of fun little indie games, puzzle games or is just an achievement hunter and would like to get an easy 100%.

9/10

Short, fun, and aesthetic, this was as close to a perfect puzzle game for me as can be. If you like circuits and logic, check this out.

Let's talk about Hook!

Gosh! It was one hell of a Brain Buster! It had me on the spot thinking about how to do things, move things correctly. I mean if you love things to get you thinking this is the Game for you! I loved it, at times I almost threw my mouse across the room but it had my attention 100% of the time. Things seem simple, but there not.

Before you know it; You're HOOKED!

This is a great puzzle game. It's not overly complex while still providing a challenge that makes you think a bit. The ambient music may lull you to sleep if you play too close to the end of your day, otherwise I see nothing negative to say about it.

Pros
  • Modern and aesthetically pleasing
  • Minimalist, ambient music really sets the tone
  • Straight-forward game mechanics without the need for a tutorial

Cons
  • None

A lot of people put the short playtime to be a con, but the game costs $1, is entertaining, and doesn't make you feel like you wasted money or time. I'd say the con is pretty much out the window.

It's a very fun puzzler that is just the right amount of brian-tingling without leaving you frustrated. That means the game is on the easier side, but it does get tricky towards the end.

Definitely worth picking up if you're a puzzle fan.

Fun, brief little puzzle game. It took me all of an hour and I'm no MENSA member, but it's a worthy use of a dollar. One achivement, some cards, I say go for it.

A short and simple puzzler. Not easy nor hard, just perfect.

With it's minimalist approach, there's absolutely no text or anything to help you... and yet, everything is clear as day once you start playing it.

A bit too short for my taste (50 levels, finished in less than 40 minutes) but at least I was completely satisfied.
I highly recommend this game.
