The work of an evil genius
This is brilliant, maddening platforming, that requires the reflexes of a table tennis player, the precision of a surgeon and the patience of a nun. You flip your little sprite from exploding, flipping platforms with only fractions of seconds to spare while frantic chiptunes raise your already dangerously high pulse rate.
I reckon other reviewers have said it better, but this is a great mobile game: fast, easily consumed in small chunks whenever you get a spare minute or two, and superbly tailored for a touchscreen interface. You will die a lot, and screech the occasional obscenity, but it will keep pulling you back in for another go.
Final word: the latest update appears to have fixed some crashing issues I was having, so these guys are looking after their product, which is encouraging. Snap it up.
Fun yet Unresponsive.
This game brings out the perfectionist in you and it really has lovely visuals and music that hold a valid place in a game like this. However, the controls either don't work, don't respond properly or were programmed backwards because you can tap at the same rate over and over and not get the same time on a stage. Not only that but wen you drag your finger, it either doesn't want to go where you dragged or you move proportionate to the position on the screen which is not only inaccurate but hard to perform, fast and precise movements like the game wants you to. It's addicting but because you want to show the game you can beat it's horrible controls.
Wooow! This is such an amazing game!
This may be because I'm using an older version of iPhone, but still, it doesn't compatible with iPhone for nothing does it? I can't even get on to the game, as soon as I turn it on it crashes and goes back to my home screen, absolutely crap! I mean, why does it say compatible with iPhone, if it doesn't even work on it! I've had this problem with some other games, but never like this one, I was expecting more reviews for this game! Turns out that apple picked the wrong app of the week! I mean there are many games out there deserving this title, so, yeah, Hopiko is a bad game, if you don't get it for app of the week! Then don't bother paying for this game!
