Flashmush Review: Drop

Link: Drop
Developer: Quickfingers
Genre: Music/Puzzle
Kongregate Rating: 4.09/5
FlashMush Rating: 8/10

***Note this uses the Unity Plugin, so if you don't have that you must download it first to play.***

This is a neat game. It combines puzzle aspects, with music and combines them in a way it's quite fun and addicting while still being challenging. The premise of the game is you have one point that is dropping say water droplets, you then have a certain amount of lines you can draw to bounce those drops and redirect them to fall into another bucket, when you fill it you win.

Sounds very simple I know, and it is in all actuality. But don't let that fool you, this game is quite a challenge and mind bender. But its ok because the way the game is tied into music it's quite fun. Everytime a drop hits a line or a block it makes a musical note, so whether you are succeeding or failing at a level it still makes cool sounds and I find that that hooks me in to play more. The graphics for this game are very well done as well. They employ a sort of futuristic, machinery, greyscale type of graphics which works quite well in this setting.


The only problem I have with this game is the difficulty really. Not that in the fact of, "waaah it's too hard, I'll rate it down", but rather in the fact of the learning curve is way to steep for a game like this. But nonetheless it's a great puzzle game which combines a cool novelty of music, so if that interests you, check it out!

  4. Interesting to see an Unity based game. Unity web games don't seem to be so popular. While the game dynamics itself is interesting, it has been done before.
