This short article is in need of work. You can help Sega Retro by adding to it.

Hook is a video game adaption of the movie with the same name, originally released on the SNES and then ported to a variety of consoles including the Sega Mega Drive, Sega Mega-CD and Sega Game Gear. Plans for a Sega Master System version of the game were put in place, but were ultimately scrapped. A prototype of said version has since emerged during the 2000s, and its ROM has been dumped.

Gameplay

You play as the grown up Peter Pan who has returned to Neverland to destroy Captain Hook, who has returned to terrorize the land once again. A swings your dagger. B jumps.
