I really like this new “Hodapping” mechanic; I’ve never Hodapped before, much less seen a game that employs such an activity — much like there’s no decent volleyball games out there — and I must tell you the experience is fantastic.
Hodapping my way through the pipes has me just about completely hooked, and the ability to watch Vungle ads allows me to not only get amazing recommendations for great games, it also allows me to rest my eyes, as not wearing the recommended GUNNAR specs can really decrease my performance, what with the (beautiful) blue lights the game employs on the background.
Best of all, those Vungle ads allow me to earn Bitcoins for FREE, which I can spend not only to change the style of Eli’s (well-rendered) face, I can also spend on legitimate Pay-to-Win mechanics! This adds some balance that isn’t seen most games today. While hardcore players can yap away 20 pipes in a playthrough, more casual players can spend Bitcoins to keep up on the scores, which is wonderful.
And being a recently released game, the high-score board is young. I have managed, thanks to the amazing balance mechanics, reach the score of 33 and with that reach around the top 30 players, putting me on an elite I would never reach on any other game, what with hardcore players (and cheaters) dominating the leaderboards due to the lack of balance this amazing game never fails in providing.
Though even hardcore players can enjoy the more enraging difficulty of the 64 Pro mode and its separate leaderboard. These players will in doing so not only get a mode attractive to the eyes, they’ll also play the hardest way possible, as there’s no Pay-to-Win. While I have enjoyed the attractive colors for as long as my eyes can endure them (I really need som GUNNAR specs), I found this mode way too hard for my tastes. Though similar games have thrived with it, so I trust this game design decision.
All in all, I was ready to forgo the usual box of chicken nuggets at McDonald’s to pay for this amazing title, but there was no need — it’s FREE. No other game will ever reach the glory of this one, for this amazing mechanic allows me to Hodapp away through the spending of NO dollars, or Bitcoins. And for that, I can only thank the undoubtedly amazingly skilled team I’m sure worked on this game. The neat graphics and amazing gameplay will keep me hooked for ages to come as I try to keep my leaderboard spot. Well done.
