Mashup games are fun to play because it’s a mix of concepts that you’re familiar with, but elements are switched up and you get to experience a whole new game. Droppy Up combines the vertical element of Doodle Jump with the drag-and-aim style of Angry Birds.
Upon first look, Droppy Up is a gorgeous game that has a fantastic layout. The game itself is very easy to figure out once you play for a few minutes, and helpful popup hints guide new players through the basics of the game.
To play Droppy Up, simply start a new game from the menu. Do move your tiny drop of rain, tap on the leaf he’s resting on and drag your finger across the screen. A guide shows up on the screen and lets you know where your raindrop will land.
The goal of Droppy Up is to help your raindrop navigate the vertical landscape as quickly and accurately as possible. You’ll encounter bonuses that add to your score, but you’ll also come across enemies that’ll destroy your raindrop if you hit them.
When it comes to gameplay, I can honestly say that Droppy Up is incredibly addicting and fun to play. I like the fact that the game is a bit forgiving by giving you extra lives and checkpoints to save progress, but it’s also challenging enough to keep you on your toes.
Droppy Up features 60 levels of varying degrees of difficulty, as well, so you’ll always be challenged. There’s also a fantastic original soundtrack that definitely adds to the overall positive experience of the game. I found that playing Droppy Up with headphones makes for even better gameplay.
When it comes to value, $0.99 is a very small price to pay for a great game. Droppy Up doesn’t include ads or in-app purchases, so what you see is what you get. Don’t let price deter you from trying Droppy Up.
Overall, Droppy Up is a fun mashup game for iPhone and iPad that’s definitely worth the download. It features hours upon hours of playability, a great soundtrack, and super simple controls. I highly recommend checking it out!
Droppy Up requires iOS 7.0 or later is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
