HoPiKo is a puzzle platform that is based on timing. It's one of those games that punishes you for not following the rhythm. The game is based on instant death mechanics so be aware that you will die easily a lot. Despite that, it's a lot of fun and well worth the price.
HoPiKo is a platformer that has you controlling a digital being that needs to stop a virus preventing a gaming console from working. You point your character in the way that you want them to jump, or press a button to have them quickly jump straight up, with the goal of landing on different platforms until you can jump into and destroy the stage's virus. Things start of easy but become more difficult as platforms kill you if you stay on them to long, moving enemies and obstacles appear, platforms that you land on break and start rotating, lasers block paths, etc. Some of these give you a nice little puzzle where you might want to hit a certain side of a breakable platform to move a certain way or to rotate it, possible rotating it in a way to block a laser from hitting you while you make your next jump. There are multiple "worlds" to play through with each having different styles to them, each world has a list of stages with each stage consisting of five maps that you need to complete in one run. Failing on one stage will require you to start form the beginning, unlike a game like N+ where you get to retry that stage in the series. You can unlock additional tracks or a bonus stage in each world that might change up the gameplay. Stage colors and platform designs are used well to be both visually interesting and to quickly let you know and react to what is going on.
