Domino Drop is one of those games you’ll find yourself gravitating towards when you’ve got five minutes spare. It’s immensely simple to learn but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It’s fun for score chasing, though.
Looking a little like Tetris, Domino Drop is all about placing domino tiles on a board. The tiles don’t automatically fall, so you’ve got time to plan ahead but you’re going to need it. Match the tiles and they vanish, gaining you some points and some much needed space. Crucially, this is also how you set up combos with the remaining tile falling down and potentially setting you up for some extra points.
It’s a simple idea but one that encourages you to think ahead as often as possible. Domino Drop divides the action between three modes with the hardest removing your insight into what’s coming next. Another mode - Tails - has you focus on removing white tiles which must be collated in groups of four, with that number increasing as you progress.
The core concept remains the same though, and it’s a strong one. Easy to dive into, you’ll find yourself returning for more frequently.
