Watch out, the nanobyte virus is on the loose and it’s threatening to take gaming down forever. Do you have what it takes to stop it?

Available for just £5.59, HoPiKo may come with a very strange name, but it gives you the opportunity to grab your power gloves and save the brothers in a speed running platformer with hundreds of cleverly crafted levels. Speedrunning is the name of the game and you’ll need to bring your A-game to the table should you wish to compete with the world across time based scores.

The controls promised are minimal – as is the price – and you should be making your way over to the Xbox Games Store as fast as you can in order to pick it up. If you’re not sure it warrants the price, then why not pick up the free trial first?
