Remember Hook? If you don’t, it was a movie about a grown up Peter Pan, played by Robin Williams, returning to Neverland to do battle with Dustin Hoffman’s Captain Hook. It was also turned into a game which, amongst other characters, let you play as an eight-year old mockney thief called “Pockets”.
What was particularly odd about Pockets was that, despite his small stature, he was able to punch the living daylights out of this side-scroller’s enemies, pausing only to yell “Ere!” as he murdered yet another buccaneer. I just hope someone saw fit to inform Neverland child services.
