Let’s face it, when you are feeling down sometimes a good game does the trick.
There are many nomads, volunteers and backpackers around the world who, despite having to live on a very limited budget, still enjoy playing a good game. However, a good game is not just a free game because there are plenty of low quality and boring HOPA games out there not to mention websites which claim to have free games while in reality they are only offering demos which are playable for a limited time. Well, that’s good too, it’s better than nothing but playing the entire game is a completely different feeling!
Here’s a list of websites where you can legally download full version HOPA games. Sometimes, you may be asked if you want to download other software as well bundled with the game, just say NO if not interested. No spyware, no adware as far as my experience goes:
- I love this site because they keep adding new games. You can find excellent games here.
This is a good and reliable site, they update their games on a regular basis and the have plenty of HOPAs to pick both fairly new and old.
They have an extensive list of games, some of them are great, trust me!
The games here are very well presented, however the choice is very limited and the games available quite old.
In my experience the above are the most reliable websites when it comes to downloading free HOPA games. Most of them give you the possibility to watch a short trailer of the game and there is a review with a summary of the plot and the technical features if relevant (e.g. hand drawn illustrations).
Enough words for now, time to play!
Next, I’m going to write about some of the great games I’ve played which are listed on the above sites.
If you know of any good sites which are worth mentioning, get in touch and I’ll check them first before publishing the link.
Life is An Adventure Game, Be Ready for Everything!
The photo above was taken in Khon Kaen, Thailand, during a period where I used to play a lot of HOPA games. When I found this statute, I thought it would be great for a HOPA , just look at the picture and guess why… Asia is a sort of Heaven for HOPA creativity, there are fountains and statues with all sort of mechanisms.
