HoPiKo is a zippy platformer currently available on iOS & Android. The players progress through the game which is soundtracked by a brilliantly composed Chiptune soundtrack.
So the story is thus. A Nanobyte virus has infected gaming. That’s it. Done. No more gaming. What can be done to combat this many-shades-of-evil virus? Well hook up your ‘Power Gloves’ and save your HoPiKo brothers (and sisters) It completely slipped my mind to ask Laser Dog’s Rob Allison if the HoPiKo had a gender?
The game requires the player to launch the HoPiKo between platforms, navigating shortcuts and avoiding death. There are 100’s of levels available, with each one broken down into a 5-stage mini run.
HoPiKo requires loads of fast-twitch muscle memory and rapid decision making.
For me, it really succeeds in immersing the gamer into the HoPiKo world and, the game objectives within!
