Mikey Hooks features a similar swing-mechanic to Swing Star, as you time your button presses to propel your character further and higher. But make no mistake - Mikey Hooks is on another level entirely in terms of execution.
This is mobile speed-run platforming at its best, with tight controls, fiendish obstacle-strewn levels, and of course that brilliant swing mechanic.
If the aforementioned games sound too much like hard work to you, then give Eden Obscura a try. It's a beautiful, strange, free-roaming audio-visual experience from the team behind the PixelJunk console game series.
This strange game has you swinging around a psychedelic garden, growing new plants and zoning out to hypnotic electronica. It's really quite beautiful.
Swing Star has a certain rhythmic momentum to it that reminded me of Ava Airborne. Laser Dog's game is way more slick and content-packed, though.
In Ava Airborne you use a number of vehicles and contraptions to keep your character airborne, striving desperately to propel yourself that extra metre forwards. There's even a yo-yo collectible that sees you swinging in familiar fashion.
