    While an absolute blast for all speedrunners, completionists, and Chiptune enthusiasts, HoPilo's excellent visuals, catchy backing tracks, and dynamic gameplay will speak to anyone looking to sink their teeth into a boldly colorful, fast-paced action platformer.

    HoPiKo has everything going for it including the ‘just one more go’ factor that is never a bad thing. Whilst we hope that mouse controls are improved, when played with a joypad it is a joy to play. The retro styling suits it down to the ground and extra content such as the hardcore mode gives it a high replayability. It’s a cheap and cheerful game and while if you play too much of it you may end up with an RSI, nailing that level was worth it, right?

    Even with its safe confinement to a generally unchanged art-style and environmental aesthetic, HoPiKo remains enjoyably engaging and challenging from beginning to tantalizing end.

    Even if not every minute of HoPiKo is classic, I definitely think the game is worth playing. You can grab this new PC release or opt for one of the many other platforms it is available on, but don’t miss out. If nothing else, that soundtrack is worth the price of admission.

    Although currently HoPiKo's controls are not perfect, the combination of electric visuals, music and pace achieves both the best and the worst of drinking too much coffee, but in videogame format.
