Editors’ Choice

While there’s no shortage of charming 8-bit platformers on the App Store, HoPiKo simply raises the bar with its stunning quality. Mixing simple controls, just-difficult-enough levels, and a killer score, this arcade game shimmers with retro quality. As you blast your way through stages littered with obstacles—bouncing between moving platforms and crashing into a big bad virus—you’ll be filled with both nostalgia and excitement.

Doesn't actually load in airplane mode

Saw Apple pitch this app as top 10 games for airplane mode. Sitting on a plane at the time, I bought it. Well, it needs to use cellular data for some unknown reason. Trying to open it while in airplane mode results in a black screen.

I realized this before the plane took off, so I switched data back on momentarily and voila. As we came to altitude, I realized that the frantic gameplay and flashing screen (for the latter there is an option to turn it off, but that didn't actually stop it) was too assaulting to the eye for a dark airplane cabin at night.

Button line: not for airplanes. Gameplay stales out really fast. App runs in airplane mode but only if you open before you take off. If you close it mid-flight you're boned.

So sorry about this. We've just updated the game to fix this issue. Thanks for playing :)

Classic Music

Although this game is very fast paced and very fun, you can’t deny the fact the game is even more fun when there’s that background epic music playing. With the recent update the music had a remastered version, though I enjoy the new songs, I would like to see a setting where you can select classic music. Despite my complain, This game is very unique indeed and it’s so much fun to play in almost everywhere. I sure hope I get to select classic music once again because these songs hold a special place in my gaming.
