What is HOP?

[Post New]by Amerzone on Jun 6, 14 9:10 AM
HOG is hidden object game, which is what Midnight Castle is.
HOS is hidden object scene which is what Midnight Castle is full of.

...but what does the P stand for in HOP?

HOP - Hidden Object Puzzle. I think some developers use HOP to avoid calling them HOS.

I play Agency 33 another FTP game and they call them HOP instead of HOS.

Perhaps Hidden Object Picture? (Though Hidden Object Pain might be more accurate for some of them!)

Oh my, I'm loving this thread...

For all I know, HOP is the main ingredient for making beer...
At least in the Dutch meaning of the word.

But your answers make more sense. I agree.

Roftl!!! I think it's for beer too

Lol, thank you everyone. I think either place, puzzle or picture work perfectly here and probably doesn't matter which we say but now I'll think of beer every time I see HOP

Interesting conversation everyone!

I've never had a clear grasp on what HOP meant, but I assumed it was Hidden Object Puzzle.

Although Hidden Object Picture totally makes sense as well.

The walkthroughs use the phrase HOP and define it as Hidden Object Puzzle. I guess it's to distinguish them from the mini game puzzles?

I sort of like Zoom Zones to describe them as well, since you can see the area on the full screen image, then 'zoom' in by clicking on it, and we need to 'zoom' (click as fast as possible) in most HOP games, too. ^_^

In this game the developers call the "chests" Zoom Zones, so it would be confusing to call the Hidden Object Scenes zoom zones in this game.

I can see that, and I guess I can see why they call 'em zoom zones with how they work, too, but what wrong with 'chests'? ^_~

I thought a HOP was where the Mummy Tiger laid her eggs for the baby Hopping Tigers.

My mistake

Kindest regards to all

LOL! Can you see it? The poor tiger after her eggs hatch, little tiger cubs hopping out of the nest at random!

HOP is the beginning of SKIP and JUMP

We should suggest a hopscotch HOP to the game developers! It ties everything together, so neatly!

Hidden Object Puzzle

HOP (Scotch) the alcoholic drink angle

and

Hop, Skip, and Jump!

And the characters need something of a recreational nature. I swear, the game is all doom and gloom!

Oh, wait. It is called Midnight Castle, after all!
