Zillo Games has released their debut title onto Android today called Hopstars: The World Championship. This particular game is a 2D side-scrolling arcade endless runner where your goal is to get the highest score possible in order to remain the current champion of the Hopstars competition.
In Hopstars you will be assuming control of one of the contenders trying to become the world champion of the Hopstars tournament. In order to accomplish this, you’ll be jumping over various pits, dodging various hazards either by jumping or sliding, and trying to collect as many coins as possible. All of this goes towards your score, and the higher your score the better.
– Control your environment by tilting your device
– Empower yourself with power-ups, talents and items
– Avoid deadly hazards and kill enemies in a cartoonish friendly world
– Challenge your friends on the leaderboards
– Story in a runner game
– Unique characters with unique abilities and stories
However this isn’t your standard endless runner type of game. Players will be trying to solve maze-like puzzles to earn bonus points, as well as completing quests for the same reasons. There also happens to be plenty of power-ups you can use to help you along, and there are plenty of secret doors and treasures to find. The secret doors lead to secret levels for you to try your hand at. Lastly, you can enhance your character through upgrading their talents, using additional items, and so on.
For those of you looking to try out this little time killer, Hopstars: The World Championship is available off of Google Play for free and does include optional IAPs as well. You can check out the game’s trailer below to see some of the gameplay in action.
