Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is HELLKID: Hook and Jump from JustNine.
The game places you in the role of Devi, a red little devil that wishes to become human. You’ll need to play through the game’s 12 levels, collecting human souls so that you can do just that. Ultimately, the game is a 2D side-scrolling platformer, that sees you tapping on the screen to make Devi jump, and while you’re jumping, you’ll need to tap again on the screen and hold your finger there to create a hook that Devi will swing on (to avoid falling into the lava). Release your hold, and Devi will tumble through the air.
The game contains four gameplay modes. The 12 levels are found in the Valley of Soul mode, while Valley of Despair mode is the endless mode, and Valley of Bones is the “extreme hooking” mode. Finally, Road to Perseverance is a mode filled with continuous pits. HELLKID also supports both wifi and Bluetooth multiplayer for global or local matches.
As you go, you’ll collect more than 50 achievements, and will be able to submit your scores to either Facebook or Twitter for your friends to see. HELLKID also supports leaderboards, and the ability to play your own music as the game’s soundtrack.
Make sure you download HELLKID: Hook and Jump while the game is still free today.
