    Hopscotch is a great game. But there's one feature that is bad. There's a bug where if you delete something with code, it crashes. I like everything else tho.

    The coding is very advanced and very hard to get also you have to pay for almost everything. Another thing is that you have to subscribe to everything, and you need WiFi to use anything on the app

    Had to use Hopscotch as part of Project Lead The Way. Nothing was easy about it. Setting up a class account was complicated. I didn't like that kids were assigned usernames and then were able to go in and change them. I also don't like that I don't have access to their accounts unless I upgrade. I couldn't get the introductory videos to load. It isn't user friendly at all and I'm worried about getting into it with my students and running into problems or having it be too difficult for my lower students resulting in them disengaging and becoming discipline problems.

    So I was making a feature worthy project where you run your own store but I found a bug in my code where when you buy the second floor, a button that puts books in the second floor that is supposed to appear when you buy the second floor DOSEN’T EVER APPEAR! Please tell me why this is happening. Edit: thanks a lot, hopscotch team! But I came across another bug where in the third floor the only Customer that appears is the robot. I swear all three of the customers in the third floor have the same exact code!

    I loved the game. It’s fun to code and play your game and other’s games. There’s been some glitches in my game though and I’ve tried everything to fix it. There’s not enough tutorial codings that are free. A lot of them before were free and I don’t know what happened. It’s a fun app though, and I recommend it for people learning how to code. If I could give a 4 and 3/4 I would. 😀

    I have been Hopscotching since 2016 and been enjoying it, a problem that half of us suffer from is, game updates. Instead of remixing your own game with different features, why can’t we just update it? there can be a GUi text box say “Update”. Add your features, change the title and the Update text (if you have one.) It’s just a feature that i would like to happen to make my account easier.
