So... after the long wait, Tobe's Hookshot Escape is finally out, and available on the Windows Phone 7. The core of the game reminds the same as the flash version, but with some tweaks to make it more suitable for mobile play.
We're also adding an alternate character, bgm and theme to the game, and that should come in some time in mid July. Until these new features are added, the game will sell for 99 cents only. So if you're a WP7 user, support us by grabbing a copy now at the link below!
As you know, there's a lot going on here with Hookshot Escape (WP7) being pushed back and all. Unfortunately, this has affected the release for Vertical Adventure on the PC. We're not 100% sure on this yet, but the tentative release date will be 1st July 2011, so rest assured, it will only be a short push back, in a matter of weeks, not months.
(Update: Vertical Adventure will be release on 18th July 2011, to avoid being drown in all the summer sales. Please help to spread the word, and not let that happen!)
For those that didn't already know, Tobe's Vertical Adventure is set for the Steam & Gamersgate. The game now comes with controller support, scores, an alternate character of different stats and ability and achievements for Steam players.
As of Hookshot Escape (WP7), the game will finally be released on 20th June, and an expansion featuring alternate character will also be added later.
It's kinda sad to say this, but it looks like we won't be able to release the game on Windows Phone 7 today. We've made a mistake on the game certification process during the submission, so we're now resubmiting the game again.
It will take a while before Microsoft gets back to us. If everything sails smoothly, we should have the game ready for release next Monday.
I apologise for the delay, and hope that you will check out the game again when it's out.
Tobe's Hookshot Escape is finally live, and you can try it on Newgrounds, Kongregate or here, on our very own site. If you haven't heard, Tobe's Hookshot Escape is an endless platformer, one of those sweet addictive experience, where you climb as high as you can, fighting for a better score. You know the drill.
The game is also available on Windows Phone 7, which should be released some time next week. We'll be having a release promotion, selling the game at $0.99 for a limited time. Plus, additional content, not found in the original flash version will be added. But more on that later.
Hookshot Escape is first of the 3 Tobe's games we're releasing, with Tobe's Vertical Adventure coming to Steam and Gamersgate 12 June (tentative release date). If you like to learn more about the games, definitely check out Tobe's Vertical Adventure instruction manual.
There's also Tobe's Great Escape, coming slightly after, probably some time in mid June on flash. I hope you guys will enjoy the game, and we can then put Tobe on more adventures (and worse situations)!
