Futurama: Game of Drones
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE!
This is Professor Farnsworth. I'm sending you off on a whirlwind of deadly, quite deadly, and very deadly missions! I’ve created an array of delivery drones to make your almost certain death more fun than my trip to Ecstasia 9, the fun planet!
Oh, and remember, the drones require almost constant attention, so you’ll need to make sure they’re arranged in groups of four or more. I also added some rather explodey doohickies, so look out for super drones like the triple-dipple laser drone, oh my.
I expect you to behave in a manner becoming of a Planet Express employee, so that means no destroying all humans, Bender! And you’ll need to use each of your special abilities to get those packages delivered before we inevitably go bankrupt and you’re all living on the streets!
Come along, off you go. It’s time for my nap, oh yes.

Bad news everybody!
I enjoyed the Futurama show, but sadly I don't have a gambling addiction this company can prey upon. So that really kills this game. At the start players will be able to zoom through the first forty levels. Once this happens you hit the pay wall. What's the pay wall you might ask? Well that's simple, it's the point in a pay to win game where the only real way to make progress is to start throwing money at it buying power ups and in game money. Don't get me wrong, I understand how economies work and I do believe in paying for good and services. However, I value my money and I would rather have an option to buy the game like I would on a video game console instead of it trying to nickel and dime me every time I'm unable to make progress.
As for the rest of the game, it's what you'd come to expect from a match 3 type. The characters from the show appear with different abilities which change how try to solve the different puzzles. It adds something nice. But the writing feels forced and bland at points. There's also features which appear in game that players can't use such as the free spin on the Robot Devils wheel. If I can't use it remove it and keep the clutter in the game down. All in all it's a mediocre experience made worse by the ridiculous demands for my money.
(Level Hard 337) Overall this has been my go to subway game (unlike many, it works offline). But the recent content releases and artificial stretching is frustrating. The content is there, let me play it! But no, I played 7 levels and that is all I get for a week now. Really boring (at least let us earn cards points on any level rather than the most recently completed one so we can continue to play the older levels without feeling like it's a waste of hearts). And finally, the drop down mechanic has changed slightly- it used to be very predictable, but now the rules guiding how things slide is way less predictable, and that makes for some frustrating end game plays that don't do what they would have a while ago.
But the property is a good one to work with and outside of the above it's as good as any other match game I've played, with some of the power ups being so random that strategic use is necessary (Nibbler in particular).
But I don’t think this is a money grab-no paywall I’ve seen (and I haven’t paid any).
I like matching games, and this one has affair amount of strategy to it. I'm kind of resigned to all the F2P (free to play) gimmicks these games often have, and this one has it all-- in game currency, multiple collectibles, power-ups, time unlocked lives. In short, they'll try every way they can to get you to shell out a few bucks. The question is, can a skilled or persistent player keep playing without paying a lot. In the long run I'm not sure, but I've already gotten a couple hours of fun out of it, and I'm enjoying the Futurama theme, and watching the Planet Express ship fly past scenery from the show as I complete levels.
The writing is better than many ios games, just not as great as an actual Futurama episode. (Partially the fault of the medium- you can't have snappy dialog when you have to tap to get the next line.) And they don't just reuse a few character head shots. You are basically unlocking a Futurama comic book as you go.
Worth checking out for casual gamers who like Futurama.
