Well presented, reasonable graphics, fun to play in short spurts
Better games available for free, irritating pop ups, de-installation not complete.

Drop heads is a game in the same vein as Tetris and Bejewelled (although not as good as either of them).

The main objective in the game is to match similarly coloured heads to their counterparts. This is done by clicking on one of the uppermost heads and then clicking into a lower space to combine it with another group of heads (which destroys the group and gives points) the more heads you destroy in one go, the more points you get.

The game can be both fun and frustrating at times, its certainly an enjoyable game to play when you’ve got a few moments to kill – but features such as pop ups when you make a mistake (that you must click to get rid of) are very irritating, a less intrusive method could have been used (for instance a warning that appeared then faded away)

The graphics, whilst not state of the art, are still pleasing to eye. However, given that better quality games can be found free to play via web browsers can be found on the internet (which require no installation) I cannot recommend this game as value for money. That said however if you want a game that doesn’t require an internet connection (for train journeys ect) this is a good alternative.

Another niggle is that the installation places a link to the game creators website, which cannot be rejected during installation.

Removing the game was a simple affair, but did not fully remove all components that where installed (folders where left in the start up menu for instance) this is simple to remedy by simply deleting the said folder(s) but is an irritation all the same.

An well made game let down by some irritating features. Would probably keep children occupied longer than adults, so it may be useful for long car/train journeys.
