For best performance we recommend iPhone 5 or later.
The best part about the game is that it works on every iOS device upon download. In other words - it's a universal title, tailored to work on all screen sizes with only one download.

Having given the game a shot on our iPad Air, we have to admit, HoPiKo is an interesting little title. And we highly recommend that you give it a try on your device as well. Also given the fact that the title features amazing graphics, we recommend that you play it on a device that has a large display, or at least an iPhone 6 / 6s Plus.
The game is free for one full week after which it will come back to its original price of $1.99, and even if you don't plan on playing this little title, there's no harm in just trying it out for the sake of it.
