    It's easy to pick up, easy to put down, easy to resume, and a blast to play wherever. But more important than its breeziness, Coin Drop rocks.

    Coin Drop is our new favourite action puzzle game and I can see this game taking pride of place on my iPad for a long time to come. It has just the right level of giddy day-glo presentation, coupled with a great physics engine and addictive gameplay.

    Featuring Peggle-like gameplay mixed with a variety of alternate collection bonuses, Coin Drop creates a compelling case for a swift ascent up the app store charts.

    Comparisons aside, Coin Drop! is a fun game to play and watch while remaining addictive enough to keep you coming back for more; just the right mix for gamers on the go.

    Coin Drop is a gorgeous game that's a perfect fit on the iPhone.

    While the game resembles Peggle in that it's also clearly inspired by pachinko, levels of Coin Drop! are more complex than anything in PopCap's game.

    Coin Drop may take inspiration from Peggle but it's far off from a cut-paste job. At $0.99, Full Fat's platformer is a fun little game that will bring smile on anyone's face, and should not be missed.

    Coin Drop may seem pretty simple at first, but it's a blast and will keep most players entertained for quite some time.

    The mix of the art style, the level of polish throughout the game, and the highly addictive gameplay turn Coin Drop into a must-have for players of all ages. It takes some elements from Peggle and adds a ton of new elements into the mix, turning it into a casual orgy of color and sweet highscore lust.

    Coin Drop! is one of those casual games that you got to have on your iOS device. Alongside Peggle, Tiny Wings and Cut the Rope it is both a perfect five minute game, and a great four hour marathon game.

    Coin Drop delivers lot of fun, creating a unique blend of ability and luck, mixed in a game that looks a bit like Peggle. But who cares? With such brilliant gameplay and a great presentation, Coin Drop really stands out in the App Store as a great arcade game for everyone.

    Putting a new spin on a combination of Pachinko and Peggle, Full Fat's Coin Drop is a bright, breezy, and enjoyable arcade game mixing elements of luck and skill.

    The gameplay is perfectly suited for those ADD moments in life when you want to play a game or entertain yourself for a few minutes while you're waiting to do something else. This is a fun, easy to play game that nearly anyone can enjoy.

    Yes, just to add an even greater degree of random nonsense, you can shake the device to jog the coin a little, and therefore give you a chance to influence its direction. Once you start employing this tactic, of course, you can't bloody well stop, and so spend most of the game spasming like a drunk with an involuntary tic.

    Coin Drop is a glorified flash game that doesn't deserve anywhere near a "100" on Metacritic. Personally I think they should remove mobile games from the "Top Games" list until the reviewers actually use reviewing standards as opposed to giving a 10/10 to anything that entertains them for 10 minutes.

    Don't buy this as a gamer expecting the depth of a triple A title. It's a bit of fun for fifteen minutes on public transport, good for killing boredom, that is all. A ten out of ten score represents a game that will endure the test of time and stay in peoples memories. This application will be forgotten about in a few months. Full Review »

    moarx is wrong on this one. This is not simply a glorified flash game at all. Its a very nice blend of skill and luck that culminates in something deeply fun and if you like games like thing s like Peggle, Coin Dozer and even a little bit of Angry Birds thrown into the mix, then you'll get this. Throughly enjoyable and worth the asking price no question. Shame that some trolls who have a massive down on the whole "phone games aren't real game" nonsense can't see past the idea that maybe all I want is a ten minute blast. Actually this has hours of satisfying game play so don't get hung up on this "Core Gamer vs Non-Core Gamer" lark. I'm marking this a 10 because I need to counter the 0 given by moarx. But in reality its an 8-9. $1.00? Well worth it. Congratulations to full fat games. Lovin' your work. Right - I'm going to have a blast at "Flick Golf" too. Full Review »
