Summary

I wouldn’t say Hoplegs is unique per se as I have played games like this before. The idea of Hoplegs is simple, You play as a cubed character and each side has a button assigned to it. Armed with these you then have to press them in an order to get the characters to move, add in obstacles and a cool level design and you have yourself a challenge! The gameplay is smooth with tight controls and levels designed in a way that not only can you attack them all differently, but they are also big enough to allow mistakes to be fixed. I liked playing Hoplegs and it is a really good time but once I switched it off I never really thought about it again and never returned. Overall Hoplegs is a fun romp with many hilarious situations but it doesn’t quite have the staying power.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
