Using the familiar two button controls, players manoeuvre a plunger over six different prize targets. Each prize target is uniquely shaped to match the color and shape of the intended prize section. Players that want to try to win a prize located in the red heart section, for example, will aim for the heart shaped prize target. If successful, the plunger will pass through the hole and activate the prize switch. The hook holding the prize will drop and release the prize into the prize bin. Drop The Hook also features a “winner every time” ball dispenser.
