Notes:  

[1] Licensed game based on the Amblin Entertainment/Tri-Star Pictures 1991 fantasy adventure film "Hook" by Steven Spielberg.

[2] Written in 100% 68K assembly language (ASM). Game design by Bobby Earl and Kevin Oxland. Coding by Bobby Earl. Graphics by Kevin Oxland; background gfx by Martin McDonald; additional gfx by Jack Wikely, Dawn Drake and Don McDermott. Music/sound FX by Dean Evans and Keith Tinman.

[3] Distributed in Italy by Leader.

[4] Game features mouse/keyboard control.

[5] As a side note, simply boot disk 2 (instead of disk 1) to bypass the intro and head straight into the main game.

[6] More info. about the development of HOOK can be read in an interview with Bobby Earl (coder) conducted by Codetapper from the HOL team (see HERE). [Source: Codetapper's Amiga Site]
