The original Hook Mover can be found in Taikyoku Shogi. This piece makes makes one or two moves like a Rook, but must stop immediately upon making a capture. It is called an Android in The Toddler. See Adrian King's Jupiter (not indexed) for the Great Hook, a Hook Mover which is limited to at most three squares on the second leg of its move.

An unrestricted Hook Mover will sweep out three planes in a 3-D board. Now I am going to attempt to provide an alternate definition of the move of the Base in Prince. Choose a plane containing the Base and place pennies in every cell that has at least one of the possible 'hook moves' to that cell blocked. [RULE 1] The Base cannot move to any cell containing a penny. [RULE 2] The Base cannot move through any cell containing a penny.
