HopBound is a story-driven psychological horror game that revolves around the surreal mind of Mayumi, a recluse who must journey through an unsettling retro game to come to terms with the ghosts of her past. Through 16-bit horror platformer stages and endless runner levels with gorgeous pixel art, she discovers that her sanity will be tested by something lurking behind the screen.


Most of the game's stunning visuals use a palette of only four colors to evoke the charm of 90s handheld games.

Listen to unique ambient music that provides a sense of dream-like dread as you explore the game's sinister levels.

Taking place two years after the events of the critically acclaimed DERE EVIL EXE, HopBound serves as a continuation of that story. However, users do not need to play DERE EVIL EXE to immerse themselves in HopBound's narrative experience.

Enemies from previous entries are brought back to life and have evolved into new incomprehensible forms.

Engage in frenzied platforming in story-rich levels and test your skills in infinite runner levels tailored for people who like competing for high scores on the Game Center leaderboard.

Going against sequel conventions, HopBound doesn't go bigger and badder for the scale of its story. Instead, the game focuses inward, resulting in a haunting yet meaningful tale.

Very good and underrated

I’ll keep it short and sweet. The gameplay is pretty good on its own and I actually like how if you run out of bullets you go to Downtown to collect more, but what makes the game really fun is the story. Its intriguing and gives you an incentive to move on even if you’re frustrated. Also the jumpscares aren’t THAT in your face like other games, but it still gives you a good fright when they do. The only problem I’ve encountered is that sometimes the audio randomly stops and I have to reset the app if I want to hear it. Overall, this game is 5 stars

Phenomenal game

As someone who has played all 5 games in this series, this is definitely the most difficult but enjoyable game. If you’re looking for something to play and beat in an afternoon, this is the perfect game for you. Playing the game on Steam beta net me around 3 hours of playtime, and the iOS version is likely similar if not the same. Please toss a dollar his way for the remove all ads. He truly deserves it for all the hard work he does.

Amazing but one thing...

The story line to this game was intriguing and enjoyable... this game was very hard but in a fun good way... it was good up until I got to the serpent... I don’t know about y’all but that thing has way too much health... it takes way too much time to kill that thing and the dodging is already insanely tough... the snake movement should stay the same but the health could be lowered lol😅
