Would you agree with this new hook struggle phase?
Imagine a world where no one spams a button to stay alive instead the entity could try to stab you with each of its finger things.
Every time it tries to attack you must press a random button prompt within a 5 second time frame that goes down overtime down to 0.
If you succeed your hook timer is phased for 2 seconds or so and then resumes to avoid the entity over spamming.
General idea: Overtime the prompts will appear more frequently and you will have less time to react.
