DropZap 2 is a NOT a color matching game! Rather, you SHRINK pieces until they disappear!
If you are a fan of the original DropZap -- or games such as Tetris, Drop7, etc. -- then you will definitely want to check out DropZap 2!
DropZap 2 has two game types. One game type builds on the original DropZap gameplay by adding mirrors that reflect lasers. The other game type builds on the original DropZap gameplay by adding barriers that block lasers from reaching other pieces.
DropZap 2 supports Game Center (subject to availability on your device).
Please note that global scores require Game Center.
HOW TO PLAY
Tap/drag to select the column where you want the circle to land. When any piece lands, it SHRINKS pieces below and sideways. The smallest piece, colored red, disappears when shrunk.
In the mirrors game type, mirrors reflect lasers. In the barriers game type, squares stop lasers from reaching other pieces.
In both game types, gaps stop lasers from reaching pieces.
Your game ends when the grid is full or piece(s) go beyond the top.
When a piece disappears, any piece(s) above it will fall, potentially resulting in other pieces disappearing, and so on. Chain reactions can be quite elaborate and are an integral part of gameplay.
(1) Standard: Remove (at least) 50 pieces to proceed to the next level.
(2) Relentless: There is only one level that never ends.
(3) Action: Remove (at least) 50 pieces to proceed to the next level. Quick thinking is required.
(4) Relentless Action: There is only one level that never ends. Quick thinking is required.
(5) Two Players: This a split-screen mode where two players compete using the same device. The player who scores at least 1000 more points than his/her opponent or outlasts his/her opponent wins.
GAME CENTER AND LOCAL SCORES
Single player game modes have global scores via Game Center. You can see previous local scores from single player games whether or not you use Game Center.

Great puzzle game
A fun game to play during a spare moment, with an inventive play mechanic. I find myself launching the app for a quick game quite a bit. An older version had a crash bug, but I've had no problems with the latest version, so I'm happy that was fixed.
Needs an undo
Game is fun but learning strategy is hard since you can't view the game board before and after a move. Taking screenshots in order to study effect of moves and look for patterns is tedious. An undo operation would make this much more of a puzzle solver game. At the very least, offer a way to retry the same board.
Wow pretty great
I didn't understand much of the game at first. I think a mandatory interactive tutorial should definitely be added for new players. However I do love whenever I score combos. It just looks so cool when I clear like half the board
