Droppy is an addictive arcade game.
How do you play?
You see your next ball at the top the screen: choose in which column you want to drop it. Your goal is to avoid that the grid gets filled up and the balls overflow at the top!
All the balls with a value equal to the number of elements in the column/row they are in will explode. For instance if there is a column with 4-2-3-4, the first and the last ball (number 4) will explode, as there are four elements in this column.
Each ball has a numeric value and it's either unlocked, locked (dotted circle) or double locked (full circle). Only unlocked balls can explode. Locked balls get unlocked if they are adjacent to unlocked balls when they explode.
After each explosion the grid gets rearranged: if there is the condition you will see multiple subsequent explosions.
After a specific number of balls dropped you will move one level up: when that happens a full row of double locked balls is pushed from the bottom.
You have three modes easy, normal, difficult. The difference between them consists of the initial number of balls in the grid and, more importantly, the number of balls required to level up. The less number of balls you can drop in each level, the harder it will be to keep the grid empty!
You will get points for each ball exploded. The points awarded for each ball exploded increase exponentially according to the chain level you reached. Hence try to chain up as much as you can. You will also get bonus point when you level up and if you manage to clear up the grid completely.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs one major fix
I spent so many happy hours playing Drop 7 and was so disappointed when Zynga let it die. So cheers to this excellent replacement. I’m really grateful. But please please please fix it so that it saves your game when you exit the app. It’s frustrating to be playing and racking up points, then get interrupted and lose everything. Otherwise, this is a keeper.

Thanks very much for your review. In the upcoming version 1.3 you will be able to resume your game if you ‘kill’ the app (or if iOS does after a few hours of inactivity). We’re doing some testing and it will be available in the store very soon. We’ll keep you posted!
Great game, Almost there
If you add these features.. 1-Give the average score of your games and 2- Save your game progress when exiting and re-entering the app, this game would be the best, ..way better than drop7. I love how much faster the game plays without all the unnecessary animations/sounds. Please add in next update!

Thanks for your feedback. You can now upgrade to version 1.3, which allows you to resume a game even if the app is killed while in the background.
The addition of the average score will come in the next release - we will keep you posted! (You can follow us on Facebook to know about all the latest updates).
Great drop 7 clone!
Thank you for bringing it back! My only comment would be to create a darker background instead of white for glare. Other than that really nice action and timing, thanks for the share!

UPDATE Version 1.2
We made the app background less bright - we moved a tone of gray instead of using white. We are also evaluating the opportunity to add a ‘dark mode’ - we will keep you posted on that one.

Thank you very much for your comment Spacekid. We will definitely look into the background color in one of the upcoming updates ;)
