Ratings and Reviews
I love this game!
Definitely worth playing! The controls are slide over to press making it easy to push multiple quickly with one hand. There are a few things to discover as well! For instance, the double jump! Surprisingly high skill cap and addicting gameplay. There are a few glitches but you don't run into them until 800+ points. I'm not sure how to contact developer if he intends to improve the Game, so I will list glitches here. Past 800 ish points the game slows down. As you progress further it continues to slow more, but speeds up temporarily inside doors. At any point if you are standing on a doorway, hit it, then instantly jump forward to avoid entering, all buttons stop working until death. Deep in when the game is slowed, sometimes all hits are critical hits, unless hitting while jumping. That is what I have noticed so far! Such an amazing ADD game!
Edit: all hits are critical hits on first round after opening the app. Tested with multiple charactor and swords.
Great game in need of content
I usually don’t write reviews for apps but I really wanted to give my opinion of this one. As stated in the title of this review, Hoppenhelm is great. It’s a simple yet addictive infinite runner where you play as a knight trying to stay alive by fighting enemies, avoiding deadly traps, and collecting coins. You’ll have to be quick though, as a pink liquid is constantly rising which kills on contact. One of the things I love most about the game is how simple the controls are. You have 3 buttons; for one is to attack, one is to jump, and one to block. The buttons are large so you can easily reach them with one thumb.
My only problem I have with the game is its lack of content. There are 9 knights, all with their own special ability including things like having an extra heart, higher chance of treasure chests, etc. There are also different weapons as well, though they all have they all have the same ability. The problem is that they’re all fad too easy to unlock. You can unlock everything in about 2 hrs. After that the only reason to play the game is trying to get your name on the leaderboards.
Overall, Hoppenhelm is a really fun game that’s a great time killer. It’s just too bad there’s a dearth of content. Hopefully more content is coming soon because I’ve had a great time with this game.
P.S. There are ads in the game and you can disable them for $1.99. But I don’t think it’s really worth it because they aren’t frequent.

Hi! Thank you for your honest review :)
And thank you for playing!
Awesome game, but needs a few fixes
First of all, I must say that I have fallen in love with this game. It's fun, it's simple, and it's charming. However, there are just a couple things that I would like to see fixed.
Firstly, the game feels like it gets a bit boring once you unlock everything. The weapons all do the same thing, and unlocking all the characters isn't difficult. Perhaps giving different effects to the weapons, or allowing the player to upgrade their unlocks with extra coins, could be implemented. None of this is really necessary, but it may add more replayability.
Also, there are a few glitches or other gameplay quirks that could be fixed. Most noticeably, the game starts to slow down after a while. Also, pressing the jump button twice in rapid succession has some weird effects. Sometimes it creates a double jump effect, and sometimes it doesn't. And finally, a TNT space directly before an enemy with 2-4 hearts is effectively instant death, as far as I can tell.
Overall, it's a great game, but it isn't perfect. I'm guessing there will be improvements some day, though. Even in spite of its flaws, I'll continue to play this lovely little game.
