El Gancho: It is a 2D platform and action game that bases its gameplay on hook mechanics throughout levels that are generated randomly. The Zaragoza studio SidralGames has announced the release date of El Gancho, its new action and platform title for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The creators of Task Force Kampas have allied themselves again with the publisher EastasiaSoft, which distributes independent court games. In a press release, the developers have confirmed that the video game will be available from next February 9 on all the previously mentioned platforms.
The story begins with some small lizards kidnapped by the evil empire of Pogovon. Apparently, they want to use them to power their deadliest weapons. The Cocos, as this species of reptile is called, are confined, so the hero of the adventure must rescue them and destroy the imperial weapons. If you played the previous video game, you will surely recognize these yellow creatures.

Stages are procedurally generated and include “challenging final bosses” and challenges created to test the player.
