Hopper Boy - 17th entry in the MSXdev competition by Gamecast Entertainment

Something slightly different for your afternoon entertainment, as we have recently been contacted through Facebook, to tell you that if you love playing games inspired by Game and Watch titles, then it might be worth checking out this new game by Gamecast Entertainment called 'Hopper Boy'. As in the words of MSXDev, "The arcade game Hopper Boy takes you back to the times of Nintendo’s Game & Watch series. In Hopper Boy you traverse the floors of a bank to collect diamonds, in order to break the high-score. Simple, clean, and fun".

Furthermore, MSXDev went on to say "Regular dev contestant Gamecast from Italy proves that a simple concept can lead to entertaining game play. With Hopper Boy, your task is to simply collect diamonds and score points doing so. The game is set in a bank with floors to scale up or down. At the top floor you’ll find the safe, where you’d better stash those pretty shiny stones. The purple door at the bottom floor will magically transport you back to the top floor, effectively making it a short cut. All this while avoiding those pesky guards. For each diamond that you grab, you get 100 points. Stuffing it in the safe will net you another 200 points. Collect all diamonds to advance to the next stage. The remaining time will be added to your total score".

  1. Looks good.

    This has made me wonder why, with cheaper tech, that modern LCD games with huge screens are not released. It would allow much better gameplay similarly to how dual screen improved over single screen ones
