Project at a glance

We all strive to see the effects of our work and how it influences the world around us! An online free game Hop & TRAch is not only a rebirth of pixel art games from the 80s. It is also the project which promotes the city of Lodz and EC1 all over the world. Now everybody can explore 3 floors of the Centre for Comics and Interactive Narration while being somewhere halfway around the world!

Hop & TRAch - characters of Tytus, Romek & A'Tomek book

From idea to solution

The legendary Polish comics heroes Tytus, Romek and A'Tomek invite you to the world of EC1. Your character will go through the floors/levels and meet one of the heroes – Tytus, Romek or A’Tomek – who will tell you a short story about each of 3 floors of the building. After visiting all the floors, you have enough skill to start the endless mode. The game lasts until you lose your last, i.e. third, life!

The online free game Hop & TRAch is launched by Liki in cooperation with EC1 – the City of Culture, and was developed during the student internship in just one month! Our team of experts and interns have done an awesome job in a short period of time.

Workflow

How it works

Play the game: control the run by tapping the screen and dodge the obstacles to help your character to survive. The goal of the game is to get as many points as possible. The more bonuses you catch and longer you run across the Centre for Comics and Interactive Narration of EC1, the more points you earn! The best results will be shown on the Hop & TRAch leaderboard. How far will you get?

Unique UX

The game brings back the spirit of the 80s! The pixel games are popular again. The design of the game is a pixel art copy of the center of comics, you will surely recognize these places if you ever visit EC1. The game consists of a lot of animations and large maps of the real building, which makes the UI and UX experience pleasant and dynamic.

Frontend skill set

The game was developed in one month by our talented experts and interns, who became part of the Liki team after this brilliant process of Hop & TRAch creating. Our devoted assistants – the tech stack used during the development – are JavaScript and ReactJS for frontend, FireBase for backend and Figma Illustrator for design.
