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.
A STANDALONE CONTINUATION
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.
MULTIPLE GAME MODES
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.
Now comes with an iMessage sticker pack featuring HopBound's adorable cast of characters!

Ratings and Reviews
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
Edit: After playing the other games, this one has the best gameplay by far. Wow. This game mixes many genres into one game unlike the other ones which is mostly a platformer. The jumps feel more smooth and satisfying too. You can tell how far the creators have come in game design
Great game, but...
Honestly I always loved this series, cause it gives the right amount of difficulty in a platformer without asking for too much. And for that I’ve always given it a pass when something wonky happens with the jumps, but sometimes the game just doesn’t like me and will make the character spin on the ground instead of jumping. Luckily this never really happened in a crucial part of any fight or area, but it can be a but aggravating when they just won’t jump. Anyways great game, keep ‘em coming.
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.
