There is a section in the endless library of game titles that should be categorized simply as “bonkers”. These are the games that take place in left field and continue. Some of these titles are also some of my favorite games because I don’t always want to do anything serious. Falling into this strange group will be Hoplegs, which is releasing its full version on PC and arriving on Switch in about a month. If you don’t like your sanity, this game could definitely be the game for you.
After spending some time visiting the Early Access section of Steam, Hoplegs is coming to our screens on November 12 and, creator Kevin Andresson is working frantically to bring together new game modes to this already breathtaking platformer. What could be better than a fool? Well, crazy maximum amounts, obviously!
Hoplegs takes the platform game and does something pretty interesting (and completely crazy) with it. In most platform games, you go out of your way to get a character to where they need to be. In Hoplegs, you will control your character using four different legs. Once you’ve mastered the controls, you’ll find yourself navigating content created by both developer and players on Steam. It’s a game that is described as difficult but fair, so there should be a lot of fun in the middle of all the madness.
With the new modes in the works, there should be plenty going on here. For starters, you can expect an epic adventure with difficulties ranging from super-friendly to, yes you guessed it, sheer madness. If you want to increase this madness to eleven, you can indulge in the new cooperative mode. You can also participate in a pushback mode if you are tired of helping your friends and want to go hand in hand.
Are you feeling creative? Why not go do a few levels, (or a lot,) and completely upset the rest of the population? Hoplegs has a whole community dedicated to doing just that so you won’t be alone. At the very least, you will be able to learn and master a skill that will be completely useless for anything related to the rest of your life.
So this is it ! There’s a whole new way to have fun and do something a little silly at the same time. If you like to be a little silly Hoplegs maybe just the title for you. As a final little note, PC owner bods can still access Early Access if you can wait to try this game. I kindly leave the link to you. here. It’s also just manic enough to show up some other way here on the mag in the future, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more in-depth coverage.
