"Hoi" is an Amiga platform action video game created in the early 1990s. It features a lime green character named Hoi.


The game was created by programmer Reinier van Vliet, graphic artist Metin Seven and music composer Ramon Braumuller. After being let down by publishers Innerprise, "Hoi" was eventually released by Hollyware Entertainment (formerly Micro-Illusions) in 1992 [http://www.metinseven.com/hoi-saga/en/ METINSEVEN.COM - The Team Hoi Saga ] ] . However, the developers did not receive much money from their contract and they decided to release a special freeware remix of the original 2-disc "Hoi" game for the new Advanced Graphics Architecture Amiga system range.

Critical reaction

The international Amiga gaming press received "Hoi" favourably; "Amiga Mania", "Joystick", "Amiga World" and "The One" all gave review scores of 80% or higher.


Hoi is a friendly little critter living on a planet in a solar system far away from ours. As soon as the male inhabitants of his planet have reached maturity each of them can’t escape to face the ultimate ritual test. They have to defy the Madlands, a large area of Hoi’s planet littered with all kinds of dangers. If they survive the quest and manage to reach the other side, they will enter the female part of the planet, with predominantly pleasant consequences. The ritual maturity test was established by Hoi’s forefathers and serves as a trial to separate the real men from the boys. Hoi sets his teeth and stoutheartedly enters the ultimate challenge.
