Poi Goodson is just a harmless little boy with nothing overly unique about him. He was raised in a conservative household that follows all of the traditional ways of life and behaviors. However, his family lives in Hipsville, which is a town that prides itself on keeping up with the times, using the latest and greatest of anything and everything that comes out. Poi wants to be cool like everyone else in Hipsville and with the release of the newest smartphone, he has a chance to be just that.
However, this means that Poi needs to be one of the first people to get this new smartphone, otherwise all his efforts to be cool and to fit in will be in vain. This means he will have to cut the queue of waiting people to try and get to the front of it. Players will be controlling Poi as he races through an massive (endless) line of people waiting to get their hands on this new smartphone.
Players will need to weave in and out of people, avoiding contact at all costs. On top of that, you will also have to watch out for random obstacles that suddenly appear in your way as well. Obstacles can be as simple as a cone, all the way up to street brawls and even cop/burglar standoffs. You’ll also have to watch out for cars. Along the way you will need to try and collect any coins you see appearing in your path. These can be used to unlock new avatars to play as. The theme of the game can also be changed as well to match the new avatar you are using, such as Jack the Pumpkin and his haunted Halloween theme.
