HoPiKo reviews and comments

Translated by

It's going fast! It's going fast! I've been waiting for the game since a moment is level challenge, people addicted to Super meat boy will be delighted!!! It's punitive, impulsive and music put in the thing! On the other hand we can note some worries, especially at the level of the stick or sometimes the inputs do not return, which makes you enter a wall. And sometimes, for no reason, you die when you don't come into contact with any obstacles. But otherwise it's very good, I hope it's a few worries will settle quickly to start seeing real people doze the game in speedrun:)

HoPiKo could be described as a Skill Game of the old ArcadeSchule. Quick Responsiveness and a very fast showing about the present Level are required to add an Ace (1 Level a 5 short runs, without an Error in faster sequence). The only thing I can fault in this Game, and what makes the Player stall a little bit, is the Fact that the "jump indicator" really perceives only after a few Movements with the Mouse. A Permanent indicator and "Click-Jump" would be more appropriate. All in all, though, it's a really gripping game for in between with classic Auto-tune Music. You Can certainly take a look at it.

The first version of the game was rather bugged at the level of the checks of the mouse. This explains the negative review number of atant for several weeks now. Now the game is fully functional for all players. And I step forward to write this review malsandstone the few hours I have on; This game is fun. Fast, simple and efficient. A perfect little game to spend the time of a few minutes (the time of a download, a coffee or advertising on TV). The most hardcore of you will surely have fun to reach the perfect at every level. The less hardcore will be satisfied to finish the run of the 5 levels (which is already a good little challenge). In short a good little game. Bravo to dev:p

If you are up for a real challenge and love 8-bit retro style games this may just be your best friend. The levels are challenging some more then others, all are aesthetically pleasing. Beating a hard level is one of the most satisfying things you can do in this world, the sound effects and the visual effects when you destroy the evil malware thing are you of this world good. Though it can very frustrating at times Id recommend this game, a fun and challenging way to kill time

Unlike the comment next to it that considers it a boring game, I can say that instead an exciting game that does not tire! really well done, ingenious game mechanics and wonderful audio especially if you download the 72mb HD audio package and put on headphones or earphones :), what about saying I like a lot even if I'm stuck at level 10;) a complicated p but will succeed! A pleasure to play with my iPhone 6S Plus and my ever-present apple ear pods: D. Congratulations to the developers for this excellent title
