One of my favorite things about reviewing iPhone and iPad games is that I get to see brand-new releases that break new ground and are fun to play.

Drippy Cat Software Limited has released a new universal title that is just that.

Boing Hop Boing is similar to Doodle Jump but takes it to the next level offering an unusual mechanic, more scenery and engaging variety.

Concept and Gameplay:

Boing Hop Boing is a platform game at heart, but there are a few twists that make the game unlike anything I’ve seen in the past.

In order to play, you have to tilt your device to either the left of the right to move your bouncing character around the screen. The more you tilt the faster it goes, much like Doodle Jump, and get an extra hop from tapping the yellow bounce button.

Your goal is to complete levels by navigating your way through the map and reaching the end.

Along the way, Boing Hop Boing throws you a few curveballs in the form of obstacles and enemies such as pesky animals and insects.

There are even moving platforms you have to jump onto, as well as moving obstacles you have to avoid. Boing Hop Boing definitely isn’t an easy game to play, but it doesn’t take long to get used to the controls, either.

Also, your character is equipped with a peashooter, that you fire with the green button, to help you defeat critters that might be in his way, as well as an ability that puts a little extra bounce in his step.

This is great for reaching higher plateaus or jumping over obstacles. Be careful not to hit anything while navigating your way through levels, though, because you only have five lives per level. Occasionally you’ll pick up an extra life while playing, but this isn’t always the case.

Features:

Boing Hop Boing includes four different themes and gameplay modes for players to enjoy. From normal/casual levels to avoiding rising water and trying to complete a speed challenge,

I really like the fact that the game offers quite a bit of variety. This is pretty much the only way to keep players from becoming bored with Boing Hop Boing.

Another great feature of Boing Hop Boing is character customization. Players can customize the color of their character’s clothes and skin on the main screen of the game.

To do this, tap on the colored leaves that surround the character. You can tell which leaf color correlates to a piece of clothing by looking at the stem and seeing where it points.

Value:

Boing Hop Boing is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 with no ads, no IAPs and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. According to the game’s App Store page, this is a special introductory price that will end once the new level pack is added.

Therefore, I definitely recommend checking out Boing Hop Boing as quickly as possible if you think it’s a game that you’re interested in.

Personally I think it’s a wonderful game that offers a lot to players, especially when it comes to gameplay environment, background music and sound effects, and overall enjoyment.
