Magical Drop V

Post by ImuyumI » Tue Nov 13, 2012 9:29 pm

Comes out on Steam November 15th. I will buy this, but sadly, go on vacation while it waits at home, crying to be played.

Anyone else interested in this?

Is this a new release or a port of something?

To my knowledge this is a new one in the series. It's coming out on PC right now and will be going to Xbox/PSN in the future.

From the pictures I'm seeing, you can have four player Multiplayer in this. I'm just hungry for some puzzle game action.

You've got my attention. I'll probably wait for it on Xbox though. You should get it there so you can dominate more of my leaderboards. :)

I had the Bust-A-Move that came out for Wii a while back. It had 8-player multiplayer. At that point, it went past being a strategy/puzzle game and became sort of a chaotic action shooter. It was still fun, but more in a "LOLWTF shit is happening" sort of way.

I'll get it for both PC & Xbox, mainly because I'd like to see how the competition varies between console/pc gamers. While the PC version is coming out tomorrow, the Xbox version isn't coming out until early 2013. I'll keep tabs on it and let you when it's coming out for the 360, so that any interested parties can buy it.

Similar, but Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo is on sale on Xbox this week. I never played it, but might be fun for $5!

Dumb game. No skills involved, its all based on who put gems down the fastest to get the diamond first. Drop diamond on the most colored gems you have and wa-la!! 20 chain combo -___-
Can someone find this guy so I can destroy him at this game? If that was a legitamite strategy, I don't think this game would even be remotely challenging.

Right Chad? :D

Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

Just picked this game up in a Steam Sale.
I'm enjoying it, but the AI is hard as ballz (or maybe I'm really bad at this).
Sounds like the game got some poor press and didn't fix a lot of things in it until several patches later, but the version I'm playing is pretty fun.
My friend apparently sort-of-desynced with me one round when my jester and side stopped moving, but our scores and attacks were consistent so it didn't really effect gameplay very much.
All-in-all I enjoy it, but I think I'm kind of ass at it because I have trouble with story mode.
