DropSum Colours

Game Description: Click on the colored tiles to make them disappear. Single tiles will not disappear - you need pairs of at least two, or larger groups. The larger the group, the more points you will score! There are two different games you can play: the Standard game, or the Numbers game. With the Numbers game, the tiles are bombs! So, you must concentrate on removing specific tiles before they explode and end your game. One thing is for sure. With two great games, whichever one you play, DropSum Colours is sure to delight!

How to Play DropSum Colours the Standard Game:

  • Once the game fully loads, click the 'play standard game' button.
  • Click on groups of at least two tiles to make them disappear. The larger the group, the more points you will earn.
  • Single tiles cannot be clicked, and will not disappear.
  • There is a small red box at the left, just under the word 'Remaining'. To win a round, clear enough tiles so this red box turns green. You'll see balloons if you do it!
  • The round is over when you are unable to clear any more tiles (that is, there no groups remaining).
  • Combo multiplier -- Clear groups of 5 tiles, or more, and you'll increase your combo multiplier! (Keep an eye on your combo multiplier at the bottom of the game screen. It will move one space to the right each time you make a match of a group of 5 or more tiles. When you make a match of less than 5 tiles your combo will end, and the Combo multiplier will move all the way back to the left and remain there until you begin another combo).
  • Power ups -- As your combo multiplier increases, it also triggers useful power-ups! As you earn power-ups, they will stack up in a column at the right side of the game screen. When you earn a power-up, hover your mouse over it to see what it does!
  • Bonus Points -- The longer your combo multiplier, the more points you earn when the combo ends.
  • The game ends when you do not clear enough tiles, and fail to turn the small red box at the left from red to green. (When this occurs, DropSum Colours will warn you that you have 7 seconds to use any of your power-ups. If you are quick, and if you have the right power-up available, you may still be able to win the round)!

How to Play DropSum Colours the Numbers Game:
  • Once the game fully loads, click the 'play numbers game' button.
  • Click on groups of at least two tiles to make them disappear. The larger the group, the more points you will earn.
  • Single tiles cannot be clicked, and will not disappear.
  • In DropSum Colours-the Numbers Game the tiles are bombs!
  • Each tile has a number on it. This number represents the number of moves you can make before the tile will explode. Each time you make a move and a tile does not fall, that tile's number will decrease by one.
  • Every time you cause a tile to fall, its number will not decrease. It will stay the same. So the tiles that don't fall are more likely to detonate first.
  • When a tile has 5 moves or less left, it flashes to warn you of the danger.
  • When any tile's number goes below zero, the tile will explode... and it's game over!

DropSum Colours Game Options: All of the game options are located at the upper left corner of the game screen. The game options are:
  • Click the musical note icon to turn the game music on and off.
  • Click the microphone icon to turn the game sounds on and off.
  • Click the icon with the three horizontal lines to turn the game pop-up messages on and off.

DropSum Colours Playing Tips:
  • It is important to realize that neither the DropSum Colours-the Standard Game or the DropSum Colours-the Numbers Game have a clock or a timer. So you can relax, and take your time to think and plan each move. (You may find it easier to relax if you turn the music off. At least, I find that to be true for me). The only exception would be for the Standard Game when you fail to clear enough tiles to win a round. In that circumstance, you are only given 7 seconds to use any available power-ups. So, in that one instance, you will need to think and act very quickly.
  • For the DropSum Colours-the Numbers Game you want to cause the greatest number of tiles to fall with each move because each time a tile falls its detonation timer (that is, its number) will not decrease. So, you may want to make a lot of matches near the bottom.

Richard's Rating: 5 out of 5.

Pro: Like its namesake, DropSum, DropSum Colours is simply brilliant. Though perhaps it may take you a few times playing it, like it did for me, to realize how great this game can be.

Con: The tiles seem to sometimes drop a little slow. However this could be simply a problem on my personal computer, which is getting old, and probably needs a little more RAM.
