Slide to Play (Aug 05, 2009)
Drop7 may not appeal to you if all you want to do is to kill zombies, or defend a castle from an onslaught of enemies. It isn’t as flashy as some of those games are, lacking as it is in climactic scenes and fast-paced gameplay. But for those in the mood for a puzzle, Drop7 both satisfies that hunger and whets your appetite for more... and more... and more. You've got to try it.

Like any great puzzle, Drop7 is a game of both skill and luck. Eliminate one ball, and it may spark a chain reaction, clearly the board in dramatic bursts and multiplying your score. Each new row of balls that appears however comes up gray and number-less, and has to be cracked open by eliminating others around it. With Normal, Hardcore, and Sequence modes — the last of which challenges you to try over and over with the same combinations — this simple game never gets boring.

For 59p, it's a steal - and judging by the fact it had to be taken down and renamed late last year because of its similarity to Chain Factor, perhaps it is. Either way, I'm gradually becoming more dependent on it to murder boring train journeys, and like all the best puzzle games its simple rules disguise satisfying depth.

Drop7 may not appeal to you if all you want to do is to kill zombies or defend a castle from an onslaught of enemies. But while it may not be flashy, Drop7 will satisfy players looking to get hooked on a challenging and engrossing puzzle experience.

Drop7 is a steal at just 99 cents. This is an intelligent puzzle game with a great concept and consistent logic. It doesn't tilt the tables to make itself harder -- it can't since it traffics in one of the universe's only absolutes: math. I highly recommend it to any puzzle fan, especially those that fancy their Sudoku.

All in all, Drop7 is a fun, relaxing diversion. If you’re a fan of innovative, casual puzzle games, this one is for you, but if you’d like something more involved, look elsewhere. At its core, Drop7 is just one simple set of game mechanics, and that simplicity is both good and bad; you get a fun, easy-to-pick-up game, albeit one whose replay value is questionable. Nevertheless, I can’t help but recommend it. Despite (or because of?) its simplicity, Drop7 is a solid game and an even better timewaster.

This is among the most innovative puzzle games and it introduces its new gameplay in a surprisingly digestible way. It isn't bizarre or complex; instead, it's highly accessible and fun to play.
