Endless hopping games are tons of fun, giving you casual game play while keeping your blood pumping. You get all the fun and excitement of a game that requires fast reflexes, without getting bogged down in the details of where to tap to shoot, where to swipe to move, and all of that jazz. My latest favorite is a new title on the App Store, Hoppy Naut.
The idea behind Hoppy Naut is that you have control of an alien astronaut who has just beamed down onto a strange new planet. This is no ordinary astronaut, though, because he is definitely hop-happy. He hops everywhere, and can hop really high. That’s a good thing, too, because there are plenty of things in your astronaut’s way that you have to leap over.
Some of these obstacles are things like chasms, but there are also creepy crawlies that you have to hop over or on top of. If you can squish one of the critters, you’ll usually get coins. You’ll also find coins floating in the air, which is perfect for a hoppy astronaut like you.
The great thing about Hoppy Naut is that you can unlock a bunch of different aliens. Some are great on the grassy terrain of the planet, others do well on the snow. Still others are terrific on sand, while a handful of astronauts are perfectly suited for cake. Yes, the planet has terrain that’s made out of cake. You can unlock all of these with coins, or you can buy them with in-app purchases if you’re too impatient to earn enough in-game currency.
Hoppy Naut is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. You can download the game on the App Store for free and even though it does have advertisements, you can turn these off with an in-app purchase.
