  1. Droplitz is one of those under-the-radar games that, in spite of how good it is, has gotten lost in the commotion and hoopla of the summer games season.
  2. The combination of deceptively simplistic gameplay and zen inducing audio tracks make for an excellent puzzle experience whether you’re a fan of the genre or not.
  3. The immensely satisfying micro-level gameplay far outweighs the minor difficulty problems in the game -- if you're looking for a new timewaster on the PC, 360 or PS3, definitely give Droplitz a spin.
  4. Some sort of multiplayer effort would've been appreciated, but even without it, Droplitz strikes us as one of the better original puzzlers of this generation, and is well worth the effort for genre aficionados seeking a definite challenge.

    The art style and music don't show a lot of personality, but the gameplay is simple and addicting. It'll claim several hours of your life before you even notice they're gone.
  6. Though the difficulty can be hard to swallow at times, the puzzle gameplay quickly grows on you.

    cud do with more special effects and customisable themes i'd say but it's a very very good arcade game, addictive and not too easy

    OK and addictive gameplay from Atlus/Blitz Games - may get boring though to some after a long while of playing. Nice graphics and music that OK and addictive gameplay from Atlus/Blitz Games - may get boring though to some after a long while of playing. Nice graphics and music that cycles - sometimes too quickly. Boring board layouts that get bigger and inject more complexity. Nice modes (the remainder need to be unlocked before accessing them). Bare bones in-game manual. Leaderboards to see how you rank among the best scores. Did I mention, it's from Atlus - maker of FRPG war games? Expand

There are some different game modes you can unlock by playing, but there is not a large variety, and it can be quite difficult to unlock these extra modes, forcing you to play just the standard game mode for quite some time.

    I haven't encountered a game in the last decade with such disregard for support. This game is not supported by Altus (publisher) nor BlitzI haven't encountered a game in the last decade with such disregard for support. This game is not supported by Altus (publisher) nor Blitz Arcade. (developer) There are people on Steam who still can't get this to run, or who have to deal with show stoppers. Whoever heard of a game site with email-only support?? Would a wiki be too sophisticated?
    Tell them you want support; who knows what an angry mob of gamers can accomplish?
    If you want to see anonymity, just check its Wikipedia page!
