If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...
Generic Jack is a 3D running game developed for iOS where the player has to manoeuvre the central character Jack through a dangerous and challenging obstacle course. The player uses buttons on screen to jump over and slide under any incoming and potentially dangerous obstacles.

The name ‘Generic Jack’ is pretty ironic, as the situations he gets into are far from generic. The game also takes influence from the highly addictive and stylized platform game The Impossible Game, where the player is vulnerable to anything that slows momentum and is then set back to the latest checkpoint.
