HoppiX animated icon

HoppiX is a game of elimination. The object is to remove as many marbles as you can from the playing field. Take a marble and "hop" over a neighboring marble. The marble that was hopped over is removed from the playing field. Continue with this until no more hops are possible. If you removed enough marbles from the screen, then you will move on to the next level -- or win the game!

Games Within Games

HoppiX includes several variations on the basic game as well as many different and lovely sets of marbles.

Changing to a new game variant will alter the game board layout and possibly even some of the rules of the game. We also have an Easy - Normal - Hard difficulty selection to make the game even more flexible!


A single level, shaped like a cross.

Classic Plus

The same as Classic, but much bigger.


A group of levels shaped like the international symbol for radioactivity.


A collection of smaller level layouts.

Totally Square

A series of square shaped levels that get progressively larger.


HoppiX features several different (and exceedingly fun) marble themes.
