You are a Tower Crane Operator, a key employee on the construction site. Use speed and precision to maneuver expensive equipment around obstacles.
Hooked! A Tower Crane Game puts you in the seat of a crane operator, tasked with moving expensive equipment around live construction sites. Start out as an apprentice and practice basic controls, like how to hoist, trolley, and swing. Progress through your apprenticeship and eventually graduate to higher ranks as you demonstrate your skills. Show that you’re a Master by quickly completing tasks around other moving equipment. Earn more money as you increase in rank, just like a real Operating Engineer.
Key features of Hooked! A Tower Crane Game include:
-Realistic controls that emulate real tower crane operation.
-Game physics that simulate the effects of swing, drag, and force of impact.
-Climb through the ranks of Apprentice, Journeyperson, and Master as you go.
-30 levels that increase in difficulty.
-Change between two different camera angles to match your preferred playstyle.
-Earn a wage as you play that increases as you rank up (like a real Operating Engineer).
-Be careful or risk causing damage to buildings and other heavy equipment.
