HoPiKo, an intense platformer that values speed over all else, is this week's free app of the week on the App Store.

In HoPiKo, the name of the game is speed, with the object of each level being to jump from platform to platform as fast as you can without succumbing to death at the hands of dangerous obstacles.

  • Fast and brutal twitch-based gameplay
  • Awesome chiptune soundtrack written and composed on authentic hardware
  • Uses every ounce of your muscle memory
  • Unique touch screen controls, not a d-pad in sight
