376431Just when you think you’ve seen enough of match-3 games, another comes walking through the door.. and this time for free. Color Drops [App Store] is from JVL Corporation whose mantra is “We take our games seriously”, and that’s obviously true in the case of Color Drops.

The rules of the game are somewhat simple: match three or more balls by number or color and this can be done horizontally, vertically and diagonally. The game is polished from the music and graphics to the interface and overall gameplay.

Overall, Color Drops is a great variation on the traditional match-3 game, and while the gameplay may be simple, it’s obvious that the developers put a good deal of thought into the game itself and added some nice touches that take advantage of the iPhone/iPod Touch.

There is a Color Drops thread in our forum where it's seen rather positive reaction from readers.

App Store Link: Color Drops, Free

UPDATE: The game seems to be available again.

    Maybe the price was a mistake after all.

      As Big Albie says below, it's back in the store and still free.

    I don't know why this was free, I picked it up yesterday and this game is worth at least 2.99$.

    Very polished, sounds are awesome and the game itself is great.

    The game is either being updated or a price change is coming. Give it some time, but the game is solid if you like match 3's. There is a good level of customization included where you can set the number of powerups, time, and even # of balls by level which is not something you see with match 3s.

    • rich_952000

      Agreed.

      I like this better than Bejewelled, and it's three bucks cheaper :D

    I just got a response to an e-mail that I sent to JVL. They indicated that they are looking into what is going on with the App Store regarding this game not being available.

    I look forward to their getting this sorted out so I can try the game.

      Confirmed. Took a minute for the mobile store to realize it, but I just got it to work.
