A good mobile puzzle game is always welcome, and if you’re looking for something to augment your TwoDots and Threes games, developer Ricardo Fonseca is hoping he has something for you.
Called Dropu, his new iOS game is — as Fonseca describes it — what would happen “if Tetris and Sudoku had a baby.” As with Tetris, blocks fall from the sky and it’s your job as player to make sequences of them in order to clear lines.
As a concept, it may not be the most original puzzle game idea of the century, but as something of a sucker for Tetris remixes, it does sound like challenging fun — while the pastel color scheme is appealing in its simplicity.
Dropu can be downloaded for free from the App Store, for all iOS devices running iOS 7.0 and above.
