  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Fire your rockets and blast off to fast-paced, arcade-puzzle action. Astropop blends fast twitch challenge with an offbeat, fun storyline. Choose from four space pilots, each with unique abilities and weaponry. Then grab, group, and blast bricks to create combos and clear a path to the stars. As you progress, a mysterious link between the pilots unfolds against a backdrop of spectacular graphics, captivating sound effects, and myriads of scoring opportunities. Astropop's two different gameplay modes (Classic & Survival), coupled with 33 challenging bonus rounds, offers hours of extraordinary replay value for players of all ages and skill levels.

    One of the best Xbox Live Arcade games available.
  2. It's fantastic and it keeps us up at night. There's no better endorsement.
  3. The one thing that’s missing from the package is a multiplayer mode which, while not as important as in other Xbox Live Arcade titles, would have really been icing on this already attractive cake.
  4. The cute characters, quirky storyline and unusual approach to the genre make AstroPop a blast for a while, but you'll be unlikely to want to play it for more than short bursts.
  5. Astropop is a charming and colorful puzzle game that mixes things up with some anime-style storytelling and even some space shooter action elements to create an original and engaging gameplay experience that will delight young and old alike for months to come.
  6. It's a colorful block-busting game with a good sense of style and classic gameplay in the same vein as Money Puzzle Exchanger or the Magical Drop series.
  7. Astropop is a fun, but ultimately short-lived experience that's missing the X factor of the best puzzlers to drag you back for long.
