Mikey Hooks Cheats And Tips
Get into the swing of things.
However, one thing you may notice about Hooks is that it becomes increasingly difficult, whether you're racing against competitive ghosts or getting through the later stages in one piece. Never fear, our cheats and tips will help you along.
-Aside from floating ninja stars and electricity surges, which you should avoid completely, there are three main robot enemies to look out for in each stage, colored red, yellow and blue. Yellow enemies can't be destroyed, but you can stand on their heads without taking harm. They also provide a boost to higher platforms if you're in a hurry. When it comes to blue robots, jumping on their heads will cost you precious health because of the spikes they have on top. However, you can slide to eliminate them, since they're vulnerable from the sides. As for red robots, avoid them completely. They're covered with spikes.
-Get to know how the swing mechanic works. You can initiate and conclude the swing with a press and release of the jump button. Sometimes you'll want to swing longer in order to achieve greater distance and collect more coins. Other times, you'll want to stop short, like if you're headed towards a spiked wall. Practice it a few times and get the hang of it.
-If at first you don't succeed, try again. You can run through Story and Race stages however many times you like, whether you're looking to collect every coin or want to get the best speed times. In fact, it's encouraged you do more than one run-through, just to see which route is the fastest to take.
-In race stages, keep a close eye on your ghostly opponents. Sometimes they know the best route to take, which can easily give you a faster completion time. Keep an eye on the lead ghost in particular and try to follow the same path he does the next time through. You may lose sight of him if you stall too much, so try to keep going if you can. First place victories give you more stars, which quickly grant access to later stages.
-Character customization is nice to play around with. Our particular suggestion is to unlock the beard, the "rocker" mullet and the fire whip. You'll look like something out of an 80's rock concert - which is awesome.
