Hoppop'n is a cute and unique anime action game that is strangely addictive despite repetitive gameplay and level design. From the review at Otaku World: |
"This is one of those strange games that seem to only originate in Japan. It's an action game: you use the arrow keys to move around and the 'Z' or space bar to do an action (also supports joystick). You character is a cute little girl. She has three fuzzy slime balls which are alive: one blue, one red, one yellow. The girl's job is to throw her slime balls at [the] hopping, bouncing, moving cones. The red ball moves along the ground very slowly. The blue ball moves along the ground more quickly. The yellow ball can be thrown in an arc and will bounce all over. Once thrown, you have to go and get them. Object is to clear the level of cones. As I said, really strange. Good graphics and music. F4 toggles full-screen/window mode. F5 toggles frame rate display." The fun lies in throwing the right balls at the right time to clear the level. Each new level brings more monsters and more obstacles in your way, so you have to time the throw carefully. Thumbs up!
