    It’s kinda retarded because it doesn’t let you do in app purchases
  • Awesome but needs more!

    By RaymondDraymond
    The first sentence is kinda outdated so let’s just hop in. 1. Stop block: A block that stops all current codes working of objects which can be a red block 2. Random block: A block that's magenta but it will choose random blocks inside it for you 3. Organized magenta blocks: organize magenta blocks by making the default blocks orange the bump blocks pink and the variable blocks gray 4. A course of challenges: make actual levels by making 3 gamemodes one is called freestyle mode where you have your account only another is internet mode where you can play projects and course mode where hopscotchers attempt levels 5. EⓂ️⭕️JIS: you know we already have a bunch of great emojis but why use their emojis when you can create your own? make a custom emoji button and it will bring up some custom emojis! you can make your own emojis or use hopscotch emojis! 6. 🔈💭Sound Maker: make your own sounds for this block! __________________________ Record the sound then draw a |Start Sound O wait 500| picture for the sound and your good to go! ———————————— 7. Rip past: Can we delete the premium please? Make everyone have everything
  • Miss the newest tab

    By Meatball500000
    But otherwise, great app! The newest tab is where most of my projects got noticed, but now, I don’t even know how they would get noticed now. But I still love the app!
  • Fun, but hard...

    By Djndhdh
    Great game! Nothing bad but it’s sorta hard to code. But easier than scratch!
  • No room

    By rrrt3trcyfyfftft
    I want to have more space for more codes
  • Awesome

    By htrcbis
    Pure awesomeness
  • Looks good, needs work

    By MuzickLuvur
    When I got in it said I need a code from my teacher. If this is what you need to do it needs to be added a at home part.

    This is an awesome app but I’m not spending that much money on my kid
  • Hopscotch plz read this!!

    By majadingosnuresry
    This game is great but whatever you do please don’t download it yet! They think everyone’s a student. I’m a fourth grader who doesn’t use Hopscotch at school! The first time I downloaded, it let you name yourself anything you want for free! I can’t pay money! My parents don’t let me. I deleted the game for no reason. When I redownloaded, I came to a welcome screen. Ok, that’s normal right? But it only said school version. I thought, “Ok, I’m gonna pretend my teacher gave me an account.” But I typed in my email and a new username, and surprise surprise! It didn’t work! And it gave me a dumb name! What is wrong with that? Also, why now do you have to pay to get unlimited projects? I used to have it before the update! My recommendation is that nobody download!!!
  • Don’t download (seriously)

    By crazyexcoder
    The hopscotch team once had tabs where anyone can post stuff on, but now they put new tabs on that are basically just the feature tab (which is where the hopscotch team chooses really good projects to feature) broken up and now there is no way for newbies to get their projects out without having to get a DIFFERENT account on the forum. Can we just have hopscotch the way it was?
