Hello everyone this is Michelle from The Portable Gamer with your iCasual report for DropZap 2 from Amir Michail for all devices running current iOS software. On the heals of the addictive DropZap, this 2nd version is considerably more challenging but still hard to put down. As with the first you have a board of shapes that you need to eliminate before they reach the top of your screen. Each time you drop a new piece a laser will zap across and down from where it lands. The pieces it hits will shrink and if the piece is already at its smallest size it will disappear. This will then cause a chain reaction as pieces fall and zap again. What makes this sequel stand out is the addition of blocking squares into the mix. Your laser will stop in its tracks meaning less objects will be shrunk. The boxes will still shrink when hit so they can be eliminated, they just don't allow the beam to pass through them like the circles do.
Just like the first version, you will get 4 different game modes each one adding additional challenges. Standard mode is the easiest and the best place to hone your skills. Each time you remove 50 pieces you level up and the board is reset. Relentless mode is similar to Standard except that its never ending. You just keep going for as long as you can. Action mode steps it up a bit with a count down timer. If you don't drop a piece before the timer runs out, the game will drop the piece for you. Relentless Action is then the never ending version of Action mode. Each time you play the game is randomly laid out, so it never feels repetitive regardless of which mode you play. The game is game center enabled and keeps track of your high scores so you can easily brag to your friends. Then when you think you're at your best, invite a friend to play with you on your device. The screen splits and you play head to head. Who ever removes 25 more pieces than their opponent or completely outlast them, wins. The game plays great on either the small or large screen, but 2 player mode is at its best on the iPad.
For just .99 Drop Zap 2 is a must have for anyone who loves puzzle games, and for a limited time, the developer is offering it for free, so hurry up and download this app from the link below.
