Hop Pico Piko on your mobile phone
DOMINATE the local neighborhood in Hop Pico Piko, a vertical scrolling casual game set in the streets of Quezon City.
Inspired by the classic kalye or street game “piko,” the Filipino version of Hopscotch, this game brings Filipino culture and nostalgia to all smartphones here and around the globe.
All you have to do is tap active squares while trying to reach the end of each street. After that, it becomes a game of endurance in Endless Mode where you have to go as far as you can as the street scrolls faster and faster. It’s the perfect mix of simple mechanics and addictive gameplay that will keep you tapping that Retry button again and again.
Players will also jump with Pinoy pride as local Filipino indie rock blares through the streets in the game. From concept to music to graphics, everything about this game is all-original and proudly Pinoy!
Bringing this mobile game to life is technocreative lab Digify, Inc., the same company behind hit mobile games Kapuso Milyonaryo and Encantadia Blast of GMA Network. Unlike these games that were promo- and program–driven, Hop Pico Piko draws inspiration from the fun and nostalgia of playing one of the well-loved street games that many have fond childhood memories of. “We created this app to reminisce all those old games we used to play in the streets back in the 80s. Nowadays, kids are always on their phones or tablets; they really love their apps. Hop Pico Piko is one way for us to keep that Pinoy tradition alive and pass it on to the next generation in a way that they will appreciate and enjoy,” explains Binky Belardo, VP for Marketing and Content. “Hop Pico Piko is just the first of a series of Kalye Games that we plan on developing.”
Digify has partnered with Gamecon Philippines that mounts a yearly event aimed to bring gamers of all ages together for two full days of gaming fun.
