A creative game with a very upbeat soundtrack. Makes for a very enjoyable playing experience for both young or older.
With the many spin-off's of this classic game out on the market, and for much cheaper, the price is unreasonable.

Ok, i will be very honest about this game and I will not sugar coat any parts of it. DropHeads is a fairly fun game at first, but like it's many predecessors, such as Tetris and Bejewled, after a few levels, the gameplay becomes to played out and players eventually get bored and move on. Well, I speak for the much older generation, but this game would be a great time killer for kids who will find the smileys, or Dropheads, very much fun and the music also adds to the atmosphere of the game. The graphics in the game are very well and not "choppy" at all, and large too which will make it easier for vision impaired players. The menus, both main and In-game, are easy to use and navigate. I do think the price is a bit too much to ask for, when it comes to a game of this genre. I mean you could go out and get a copy of a much similar game, with similar gameplay, objectives, and as fun as DropHeads, for about half the price. To go more in-depth, this is what I think about DropHeads:

  • Graphics--5/5 Crystal clear, smooth graphics with vivid colors make it an enjoyable sight.
  • Sound--3/5 The soundtrack is really fun to listen too, and the sound effects makes your play time more enjoyable, although on some slower machines, the sound might skip a bit.
  • Gameplay-- 2/5 Although the story is fairly different and fun at first, the gameplay is the same as any of the spin-off's that have been made prior to this game. It will eventually get boring and if you are the easily bored type, well, try not to fall asleep at the keyboard.
  • Controls--3/5 Controls are really simple. Just click and drag with your mouse. But after a while, you might feel like you are getting a case of Carpel Tunnel. Aside from the clicking-induced pain, it is really easy to catch on.
  • Playability--2/5 After you complete it the first time, playing it over all the way through might seem a bit on the dull side. This game or any type of game like this, is better off to be played over on occassions, to keep it from letting virtual dust gather on it.

Dropheads is similar to Tetris or Bejewled. It is fun at first, but after a while, it will eventually lead to boredom due to its repetitive gameplay elements.
