  • Very good but needs more free tutorials

    Hopscotch is a very good app but I feel that ever since they went premium that it becomes more restricting. A way you could fix that is by making more tutorials open or having 1 locked one available each week. Thanks for the great app
  • Great!

    So.. you've released some beta features. Cool! I really like these. Especially the scene one. Where you make different scenes. I love that idea. Except there's one huge problem with it. So, I've tried adding objects into a second scene, and it was going pretty great! Then, I tried doing a "is touching" block. None of the objects in the second scene where on the objects list. I think this is a big problem, and would love to see it be fixed! But, all of the other features work great! I think.. I have no idea what the Z block does. I love hopscotch, and it is a great place to be when you want to create something, and that is something that I hope to succeed even more. Thank you for reading this review.

    Dear hopscotch, I am Jackson and I have wanted to get your app for a really long time. I can’t get it because it is not free. I suggest making a free version so I can get the app. (This is just a suggestion. You do not have to do that.) Thanks, Jackson
  • I just got the game but...

    I just downloaded this app thinking it would be great for me since I’m only ten. But sadly I can’t even log in😭. Witch really upsets me because this app looked so fun but I put in my email and since I don’t have a password for this I pressed forgot password and I typed my email but nothing worked and it said try again so I did. When I re typed me email it kept saying the same thing. I don’t really want to buy all these in app purchases to log in and get stuff either. For know I have deleted the app because of this when I get a respone and y’all that made this game fix it and stop adding useless stuff on there I will re download the game! Ty for reading!
  • Somewhat disappointed...

    I’m a bit conflicted about Hopscotch. I do have fond memories spending hours coding and making games, but I don’t really like how it is now. The “Newest” tab isn’t the way it used to be. It only shows select things and that makes me wonder how smaller game makers are supposed to get noticed? I have been featured a few times now, but when I was first starting out it made me really happy to just have one person like it. I really liked Hopscotch, but I just wish that the tabs could go back to the way they used to be. The chance that my project might never be seen doesn’t make me feel motivated enough to start coding. I am also disappointed that you have to sign up for a free trial, or as a student or teacher. This new way of signing up for the app is really confusing, and my friend just decided not to get it. I think that the app should just start off being free, and if the user really wants the premium features they could choose to subscribe. Edit: So I have been on Hopscotch some more and I now really miss old hopscotch. The new tabs are terrible. They make me physically nauseous. Only the projects that already get likes will ever be seen. It seems almost impossible to get featured. Why do I even try.
  • Eek I’m mad

    The coding is easy enough for making cool things like games and animations but let me get this straight sometimes *or most of the time* the block pieces keep disappearing and it lowers my advantage because I only have to use emojis and the characters. And why do I have to pay to get pictures because I need some of my own characters in the game am making idc about sounds or drawings I just want putting pictures on your game for free. Ik you need money for builds and stuff but just please make pictures for free. Thank you and please reply.

    This used to be my favorite app. When you added the subscription i’m not going to lie i was very disappointed, but at least you could still play. I decided to go back to it and try to enjoy it, only to learn that now you can’t even PLAY without paying. This is a free bait app. In case you don’t know that means you can get the app for free, but need a subscription to do just about anything. Wow. Just wow. If you want a coding app where you don’t need to pay a subscription to do anything, I highly recommend swift playgrounds. I get it, you need the money, but honestly at least let kids be able to do SOMETHING with your app without paying.
