The Hop and Bop demo is a 16 color nostalgic retro platform game developed by Flip Industries. The demo currently contains one world with four sections. We want you to experience what we view as a starting point for a complete game which we would love to be able to finish.

-- We Need Your Help --
We would like to make this a full game. We are currently looking for feedback on the Hop and Bop demo and would love to hear your suggestions for what could be included in the full game.

Please stop by Hop and Bop's main page http://home.comcast.net/~hopandbop/ to leave feedback, check for updates, and contribute to the project.

Thank you, enjoy!

It LOOKS like it could be fun, but at the time, there's nothing to do. WHY ARE YOU HERE? Why are you a rabbit? WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE?!?!?!!?!? But yeah. i'd give it five stars if:

1) You can break stuff. Come on, the whole world is invincible?
2) More enemies. Plz? :3
3) Better control. He's a little slidy and whatnot. He's way too hard to control right now.

Sorry If I sounded like a jerk, this is just my opinion on these games. Totally disregard this if you want.

Mario with slightly bad controls, and a rabbit.
Also, I have already seen this game before, why ?

Now; I am one to enjoy pixel-y graphics, but the fact that everything looks so... "Mario-esque" (Did I spell that right) actually takes away from the game instead of adding to it. The game even decided to trick me with gold blocks that I can't break because I'm not Mario. But at least our character is cute (I like bunnies).
There doesn't seem to be any story here and normally I'm okay with that, but what's my motivation for killing turtles is it a "Tortoise and the Hare" thing? If so: why am I fighting birds? And what do they turn into when they die!?
The music is okay, I think that we needed more tracks, but of course I couldn't make it past level 3 which brings me to my final point...
[LIGHTNING ROUND!!] Oh my God! That potion is the worst power up in video game history... EVER! It doesn't make you INVINCIBLE, it makes you INTANGIBLE (Ghost-like) allowing you to pass through enemies... and carrots, hearts, clocks, you can't even kill enemies while it's active. At the same time the game is too hard and too easy: Enemies and Items don't re-spawn when you die and there are no mid-level check-points. And then I died... still waiting for the game over screen to end...
Over all this game has potential if you could break away from the Mario-ness this could be a great Platformer. Unfortunately this demo is very lacking which is why it only gets 2.5 stars.

PS. On a side note (This is for all you flash developers out there) just because it's a Mario-like platformer doesn't mean you have to have a sprint button for the sole purpose of "Sprint across these stepping stones" I get there and think "Hm? What am I supposed to do here(?)" I'm so sick of that puzzle: just because they did it in {Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels} doesn't mean you have to do it here. Also might I recommend Re-mapable controls? It's really hard to Jump with a damaged "x" key (long story). But for now, I'm gonna hit re-fresh and try again.

PPS: That "Game over" screen lasting forever thing IS a glitch... right?

I must admit I was pleasently surprised by this game! It's jsut so charming, I don't know how to describe it. There are some problems here and there, for example, I think it would be nice if you could still grab items and carrots while being invisible, and if you'd start with full health.

Very mario-esque, perhaps add the ability to unlock a secret skin or something of the sort for collecting all the carrots.
