    Hey i like the game but the problem is because u removed the good stuff it was already good but until you just add some updates and you made it worse i want the old stuff back in the game please?

  2. guest-avatar

    Downloaded the game after a long time of not playing it and I so much prefer the original version, this one is so much more restrictive in gameplay and I'm honestly not much of a fan of the new art either.

  3. guest-avatar

    I don't have problems with game but I just don't like when how u save a blob it doesn't help u fight off other enemies

  4. guest-avatar

    Wth developers, the game was so good already, you ruined it by making an auto click, it's so bad rn cause it's easy and boring, STOP ADAPTING TO THE PLAYERS, THE PLAYERS HAVE TO ADAPT TO THE GAME, I haven't played this for years, and when I reinstalled it, it was just sad to watch how much you have fallen, sorry but you just lost one more player, there are others who like to get this game back to normal, so please do it, and make another game with auto clicker, leave this one alone.

  5. guest-avatar

    Cute game but the speed of enemies and blobs needs to be adjusted sometimes they are so close u save the blob n enemy eats you.

  6. guest-avatar

    I had installed this game way back, probably 2-3 years ago. I remember it was really good, you could really see how "dark" and "scary" the game was. One example was how blobs would shoot themselves if they accidentally killed another blob. I'm actually disappointed in how the game is right now. Heh "reflexes". The older version depended on reflexes since YOU HAD TO MANUALLY AIM. Now you just press a button hoping not to accidentally shoot a blob because of bad shooting. RETURN TO THE OLD VERSION

  7. guest-avatar

    I used to play this game in 2016 and loved it. The more blobs you saved the more guns you had and it wasnt always just one blob shooting. I remember the game being fun because you had to be fast and accurate as well as careful so you dont shoot other blobs. YOU had to aim. There was no autoaim. Really disappointing but what can you do, these devs dont seem to care anymore. Not with all of these boring, lazy copies they've got

  8. guest-avatar

    I played this game back when you were able to press where you could shoot and were able to gain allies, this tap and shoot and shoot is boring, plus the auto aim is annoying it can get pretty annoying when a friendly is running at you, with that being a thing, it auto aims on them, so ya gotta wait till they get to you before you can start shooting the monsters, can we please get the old school Hopless back please???

  9. guest-avatar

    Undoubtedly preferred the 2015 build of the game, both in style and mechanics. Being unable to freely choose where and who I shoot creates scenarios where I'm forced to lose or wait a ridiculous amount of time for a blob to come in before I can shoot the threat that surrounds me during that time. Furthermore, being unable to shoot more than 1 blob tarnishes some aspects of the game. What's the point in letting the blobs in if they don't assist me anymore?

  10. guest-avatar

    And this was supposed to be good?.I dont think so! You stand in the same spot and shoot .. boring!

  11. guest-avatar

    This game is broken. The mechanics are simple, but sometimes you are stuck in a situation and can't get out. There is a problem between saving the blobs and shooting the monsters. If a blob and a monster spawn at the same time at the same speed, you cants aim your gun to the monster and either shoot the blob and die or save the blob and get eaten. This game has just been a waste of my time

  12. guest-avatar

    I remember it being good, I uninstalled it to make room a long time ago. Now it sucks, I mean it doesn't have ANY of the charm it used to have, like for example if a blob shot another blob you'd see it kill itself, that may sound sadistic, but it was a little nice tid bit. Too bad this game is not nearly as good

    I played this game long ago and really enjoyed it. But I don't know why they did it, they changed the whole game. They could have uploaded it like a new game. They had a similar game named hopeless space advencher. That game is totally missing. They just massacred their own game.

  14. guest-avatar

    Daphne Bernadas


    I have just downloaded the game and it kept crashing.

  15. guest-avatar

    New update sucks. You dont even aim, the new blobs you get just disappear. Much less fun, I dont know why they would go back and update the original when they already have two sequels, so they could have just made a new game instead of ruining the OG.

  16. guest-avatar

    Aidyn Escalante


    The original version was so much better. This seems like wasted potential now

  17. guest-avatar

    I liked how the game operated before. When you had to tap the monsters and you could have more than one blob join in the battle.

  18. guest-avatar

    bacon greaser7777


    I hate this new hopeless It was way better before when you had to aim and stuff, you should have released this as at least a remastered and left it alone when it was already a good game

  19. guest-avatar

    I remeber playing this game a while ago, coming back to it and seeing how the game got worse and not being the original kindoff made me sad. A downgrade would make the game a whole lot better.

  20. guest-avatar

    Clash of Gamers


    This game is now worst5x the old version is better than this stupid version!!

  21. guest-avatar

    I mean its good and awesome the real thing is why is it on auto click mode.

  22. guest-avatar

    The first version of the game was better this one cant even compare to the first one you should bring back the real game not this fake version ...

  23. guest-avatar

    The game used to have a dark theme to it you could tell it had a certain tone to it that just added to its effect but then revamp happend the game was diffrent the feel just ended its like its not even the same game enymore

  24. guest-avatar

    So I redownload this game I remember it being really fun but what the hell happened to the controls it's just click in one spot where's the challenge in that please go back to old controls or let them be optional in the settings

  25. guest-avatar

    I started to hate this game now because those flying things when there far a way i ended up hitting a blob pls stop that or even other monsters will jits get near me but then there is blob and im aiming for the blob that all what i want you to fix but pls fix it now even the ads too!

  26. guest-avatar

    This auto aim system shucks alot. I prefer the one where u can aim yourself. Please revert to the old version of hopeless please.

  27. guest-avatar

    Not going to lie here so you guys made this game bad it was alot better before it got an update like I used to love this game I had it a few years ago and I found it today but iam dissiponted that you changed it so much

  28. guest-avatar

    This game used to have better mechanics and make saving blobs more of a useful asset instead of some way to avoid micro transactions

  29. guest-avatar

    Cheryl Laughton


    First the game is just impossible secondly the auto aim gets you killed most oft the time lastly when I pressed no ad to revive it gave me an ad

  30. guest-avatar

    This is a pretty good game I really liked playing it before...but now I installed it again in my new device its not running

  31. guest-avatar

    It wasint like the old updates were u dont tap 1 button u had to tap on the monsters all tho it was a lot of fun

  32. guest-avatar

    It will be better if you chose who will you shoot like the old game

  33. guest-avatar

    I like the app it just has weird controls and that yo u need to wait for your friend then kill the monster

  34. guest-avatar

    The older version was definitely better I played this game a lot a couple years ago and now that I finally got my new phone I was determined to find and play it again. only to find this new version though this still is not a bad game. I do prefer the older version. In my opinion monsters were scarier and it was kind of funny to watch these little marshmello guy's shoot themselves in the head after killing a comrade. dark but funny.

  35. guest-avatar

    Please can you make this one how it was before because I diss like how you cant tap any where on the screen or get more blobs helping you anymore so please change it back to the way it was

  36. guest-avatar

    New system is much worse. The older one where your shots went where you tapped and the blobs actually killed themselves was more enjoyable. Game is still playable and decent. For details you should look up why the game is changed. There is a download link for the original game system on their website from before the game was taken down.

    Fun but to difficult for no reason.

    App won't open. Changed the game since I last played

  39. guest-avatar

    Clemente Flores


    The older mechanics were better imo

  40. guest-avatar

    vidsifyourbore d


    Played this game long time ago it was better when you tapped the monsters and not ur friends and also your friends could get shields and more options then now, now you have to wait for your teamates to go to you and thrre could be a monster behind them with 2 shots to kill so you die and your friends don't even help you now.please switch to the older version

  41. guest-avatar

    Its good, but I got this game when it first came out and it was better when u could actually aim. I also dont like how you die after shooting one of your own. That used to be different. I just miss the old version simoly put

  42. guest-avatar

    Loved the old version where you had to actually tap on the monsters and avoiding killing your friends. That was great. But this new update is just a complete downgrade. I beg of you to bring back the old version.

  43. guest-avatar

    I would really prefer the original version. I redownloaded it because I remembered how fun it was but I immediately uninstalled it upon realizing it wasn't the game I loved before. I would love a download for the original

  44. guest-avatar

    The Random Gamer


    I used to like this game but when I redownloaded it, it was nothing like the version I played so I downloaded a old version of it off the internet. Inclusion you made this game unenjoyable and un fun to play

  45. guest-avatar

    The original is more fun than this new update. TAPPING THE MONSTER IS MORE FUN. Please get it back.

  46. guest-avatar

    It's fricking hard as hell cuz even on level 1 i can't beat boss stage cuz it's hard enough having to wait till the blobs get to us by that time the boss gets to us and needs 2 shots to kill no matter how fast i do it it doesn't work the boss eats me try mr. Gun instead if y'all are that desperate

  47. guest-avatar

    I used to play this game a while back around when it first came out back then the game you clicked the monsters not a button. Back then made it where it tested your hand eye coordination now it's just dumb

  48. guest-avatar

    Whatever they have made this game now is trash. The original game was so amazing.

  49. guest-avatar

    Antonio Vasquez


    What the actual hell happens to the game. When you guys lunch this game, I was very intrigued of the main concept of the game, tap on the monsters to kill them before they get to you and not tap on your fellow survivors. Now you guys placed a big ass button on the freaking screen to tell tap here to kill the scary monsters and don't click on the bottom to kill your fellow survivors and wait till they get to you so you can shoot a the monsters behind your teammates.

    I like this version and all,but I loved rhe old one better because now it feels like an arcade machine.

  51. guest-avatar

    Hey devs, im really2 miss this game, i like the old ones Not this big button. Srsly n not joking..pls put it back.. Sincerely from your fans.. You can add ads or ingame purchase but dont remove the old concept, The old concept make this game alive devs❤️❤️

  53. guest-avatar

    Erick J Esquivias


    old version is better that update was a mistake

  54. guest-avatar

    The old version was better, this was a funny game, now It's like a baby game. Bring the old version back.

  55. guest-avatar

    Liked the old version a lot better.

  56. guest-avatar

    I personally much preferred the older version of the game as it was more fun and you could shoot any where

  57. guest-avatar

    Still fun, although I really prefer the previous version of the game. Can we opt to play like the previous of the game? Might uninstall if I can't. Thanks!

  58. guest-avatar

    This game used to be really fun but now it's not because they changed alot of the concepts...

  59. guest-avatar

    I like the game but before it was scarier and worked differently so I prefer the original version but still is a great game

  60. guest-avatar

    What happend to this game... I reinstalled this game and now it's just not good you just tap a button this is not the game I remember so what happend.

  61. guest-avatar

    Blobs no longer suicide. 0/10 Also, monsters now look bloody cartoonish. What happened to this game?

  62. guest-avatar

    I like the old version it was it was funner

  63. guest-avatar

    The older one was much better and took more skill bring it back

  64. guest-avatar

    Himikai Mizorashi


    This is nothing compared to the old version. Uninstalled.

  65. guest-avatar

    Still fun but were did the good dark cave go? I loved that game I was almost going the spend money on it but now Iam stuck with this.

  66. guest-avatar

    Get the old Hopeless back! Was Much more thrilling!

  67. guest-avatar

    Nick John Divinagracia


    bad decision to change the gameplay. Seriously, you ruined the game.

  68. guest-avatar

    It was fun when you guys first came out with it but all the new updates are kinda dumb:/

  69. guest-avatar

    Damian Sorgente


    No action has been taken on all the negative reviews. The developers can suck it

  70. guest-avatar

    Not as good as it used to be the old version was so much fun and was exciting and challenging. I was so happy when I saw they remade it but after playing I'm incredibly disappointed the gameplay is so boring in the old version you didn't have this Auto aim and the blobs you collected stayed with you so you had more guns I also loved how dark and scary it was the new monsters are nowhere near as scary and as soon as you kill another blob you die instantly where as in the old version the glow from the blob would get dimmer and dimmer untill it shot its self and it was amazing I loved that game but this new version is complete garbage and I no longer have any love twords it

  71. guest-avatar

    Fun game and good to test your reaction skills😁

  72. guest-avatar

    The game back then was so good and unique back then. You constantly shoot which way is the monsters instead of you just clicking one button which will become boring so fast. They're still potential and the new update made became boring, slow and not fun. They took features that made the game scary fun, fast phase and awesome. Please bring back the features from old versions that made it fun.

  73. guest-avatar

    I actually do really like the game it was pretty fun playing it but i had to uninstall it since my phone wasn't working well so i did to make some space but it's not getting installed and even there's seem to be sth wrong with the download link couse it wont go further tha n 50%....it really makes me sad i sriously like it!...can you check that please!

  74. guest-avatar

    DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!!What happened to the original controls...I really used to like the original one now its just tap tap tap in just one single spot . This game is totally ruined now.... Please bring back the original controls

  75. guest-avatar

    The original version with manual aim, multiple blobs, and dark undertones of suicidal blobs was a far superior game. This is just a simple button tapping game now. Go back to the original system, it was way better. I'll come back and give it the 5 it deserves when I get my original Hopeless system back.

  76. guest-avatar

    I much likely prefer the older version but i can't give a bad review just because of that. The overall game play good, there are a few glitches here and there but whatever. Good game

  77. guest-avatar

    Fun. Just fun

  78. guest-avatar

    there should be like a in every level and boss should give a coin every kill please update it and I won't dislike it🤗🤗🤗

  79. guest-avatar

    Julienþ Garciauii


    its really exciting to play lots of fun!!!

  80. guest-avatar

    No lie this game held so many happy memories for me and in an attempt of nostalgia i decided to download this game again. Its been so simplified and the gameplay has changed so much amd even the art. It depresses me. I wish the old version existed.

  81. guest-avatar

    Not fun anymore whith the stupid atuo aim

  82. guest-avatar

    Hey. I remember liking this game so much but I got a new phone. I found this game again and I thought "wow I haven't played this in a while" so I downloaded and.... it's nothing like how it was before. The original was scary in a food way. You got to pick where you shoot and stuff would pop out and you didn't know if it was a human or not. But now it's just a game where you click and then dont click. I think you should put this back to the original or bring back the original as a diffrent one.

  83. guest-avatar

    I used to absolutely love this game. Ever since the update though it has been really bad. I dont like how you have to tap a button to shoot. I liked the old mechanic where you tapped the monsters. What happened to this game?

  84. guest-avatar

    You destroyed the game, it was already good but now it's just plain boring, the mechanic sucks, the old one was much more entertaining, fun, addictive, etc. I'll change my review when its back to its former mechanics

  85. guest-avatar

    Used to really love this game! This new version is awful.. they should go back to where you tapped the monsters to shoot! And to where you gather blobs that fought with you

  86. guest-avatar

    I played this 2015 it was great but you turned it into a cash grab it feels like this is so boring and feels much more restrictive

  87. guest-avatar

    The original version of this game is alot better. I prefer playing the older version. Can you please make the older version please? I would definitely change my review.

  88. guest-avatar

    I used to play this hopeless long ago and it's doing fine. I already finished all the chapter and had to uninstalled it. Unfortunately i miss the game, i was on the page, it keep crashing and kick me out of sudden. Please fix it, coz I'm going to loss my patience.

  89. guest-avatar

    Changed my 5 stars to 1. I absolutley despise the new updated graphics and controls!!! Should have left the game alone the way it was, the monsters are no longer intimadating, the controls are complicated, and it no longer brings the adrenaline rush it used to...

  90. guest-avatar

    I really loved the pr update version but now the game is just sad I mean come on an auto fire button how did you not think that was the stupidest thing to do when developing a reaction time focused game just eww also what the hell happened to the space version

  91. guest-avatar

    Telisha Bayobay


    I remember when this game was fun and you had to manually shoot I got this game for the nostalgia but you ruined it I would love to see the original as it was much better

  92. guest-avatar

    I actually played the original, and I have to say, it is quite different. There are no more levels, instead the game devolved into a simple arcade game. Also, I am not a fan of the new controls, it is annoying when there is a monster right next to me but I can't shoot it because a blob friend is in my aim. In the original, you could control your aim. I suggest making an option to switch to the original controls or just release the original game as a completely separate game from this game.

    the app wont work. i had it installed on my phone three times now but same thing happens.. it says "missing file" i have a Screen shot of it if you need one .. hope some one will recognise these and fixed it. .would like to play these first before the part 2 and 3

  95. guest-avatar

    The old Hopeless was better. The targeting system is flawed, and it feels like a PG version of the original. I miss the terror of being so nervous about a wave of monsters you accidentally shoot a blob, and it was your fault, but now it's all bright, and the only fault is the targeting system locking onto a friend. Bring back the old one. Just put it back up so at least actual fans can enjoy it.

  96. guest-avatar

    Why did you change a fun and challenging game into those cheap ass rush game?! I feel like the reason why you guys did this was because this type of gameplay are more popular now. Ya they are popular but they're pretty boring. The old one was a lot more better than those generic arcade game and was a lot more fun. Seriously, bring back the old hopeless and the other ver of hopeless too. They were more fun than this garbage.

  97. guest-avatar

    Listen up Upopa games. You made a fantastic game when you made hopeless! I absolutely loved it! The fear aspect of being in the dark getting murdered by giant monsters was thrilling. Aim and timing was everything. And the mechanic of killing your friends driving you to suicide was innovative and challenging. I recently redownloaded the game to find that you had changed most everything I loved about the game. The terror of facing unseen monsters was replaced with a click one button to shoot cute monsters killing cuter blobs with adds posted everywhere. Needless to say I was disappointed. I'm glad you guys have done well enough to fund several sequels and a new fighting game in the past few years, but why did you have to change a game so far past recognition when it was great to begin with? I am left with little hope of rediscovering the little game I loved, and it saddens me to say I am left hopeless. Sincerely yours, -Daniel

  98. guest-avatar



    After playing in a long time it's the worst game that you made because the auto aim is annoying and the fact that you can't have multiple blobs is just boring pls revert

  99. guest-avatar

    I cant get in, it always crashes.What is wrong with my phone? Is it just my phone or the game?

  100. guest-avatar

    Killing those monsters is so nice.
