HoPiko is a really cool fast-action platformer. Simply beam from one platform to the next in these short but sweet micro levels. The storyline and art style filled me with some nostalgia and the sound track kept me playing. My only complaint with this game is that you play about 5 levels in a series and if you mess up anywhere along the five levels, you have to start from the beginining of the series. It definitely adds to the length of play, preventing the game from being too easy, but I found it rather frustrating. You have to be extremely precise with your movements and a simple mistake sends you replaying all the levels over again. Otherwise great job!
