-Worth the price point -Innovative concepts on older concept of similar games -Won't get boring as fast as other games of similar nature -Graphics were decent -Good interface overall, the gameplay screen is excellent -Nice way to do the tutorial(while you are playing) -
-Will get repetetive sooner or later -Same basic concept as similar games but with new angles to it

OK first of all lets clear something that we all already know:
games that involve a one-dimensional concept, no matter how detailed that concept is and no matter how much thought goes into them, get repetetive sooner or later, leaving the customer/user/gamer feeling like the only purpose left of the game is to entertain guests if they are bored. Or at least that is the case in my experience.

Now, with that being said, it can easily be concluded that Dropheads falls into that category of games. The game itself is not bad. I liked the level of innovativeness that was there. They (the developers) included some new concepts to some classical games like tetris and the like. It is very creative in the way it lets you different combinations and the different ways you can score and what not. But this is one of those games that you will probably play for a while, get really good at it or it becomes easy, and then you either play it for the same reasons you would play solitaire or minesweeper, or you just use it to entertain your guest's children or something of that nature.

For its price point, it is a good purchase/good game.
Judging from what I observed while I was playing it,
it didn't seem like it was going to get boring too soon.
I was actually entertained for the 20 or so minutes that I played the game.
Graphics are what you would expect from similar games. It is not the best but it is solid.
The whole concept is repetetive but the developers did throw in a few angles here and there to make the game less repetetive, but again, after a while it is bound to get repetetive.
Other than that it is a pretty solid game. I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars overall.


If you just want something new then this is a good purchase.
