Do you play games on your mobile phone? I don’t play many. Don’t get me wrong, I love to play games on the computer and on the iPad. But I won’t play most games on my phone. Why? It’s for the same reason I don’t read books on there – things are just too small for me. I have poor vision and I just can’t see. I limit the games I play on my phone to certain types, match-3 being one.
Since learning about Gummy Drop back in September I have played it almost every day.Until I switched phones to an Android. Gummy Drop wasn’t available for Androids. So whenever I was out and wanted to play, I couldn’t. Well I am very happy to say that as of today that has changed. Gummy Drop is now available for Android! The game can be downloaded for free from Google Play and from Amazon. I am so excited!
When I heard this news today I must admit I was a bit bummed for a moment. After playing on the iOS platform almost daily for over two months I had just finally beat the continent with Sydney, Australia and moved on to the continent with Tokyo. I was afraid that I’d have to start all over again. But that was not the case! After installing the Android app on my phone the game connected to my Facebook account and loaded the game I’ve been playing all along, placing me right in Tokyo where I left off yesterday. Yay!
The game plays the same here as it does on the iOS platform. Your mission is to put the world map together. Your home screen is a map of the continent you’re on. The map also contains a list of the goals you need to reach in order to move on, as well as how many lives you have. In order to beat a continent you do need to beat all of the levels on it. But there’s a twist. Each level can be played three times. For each of the three times the level is played it gets more difficult, but it also provides more or better rewards if you beat it.
When you start the level you are shown the goals for that level, such as a specific number of bricks to collect or tiles to interact with. If you have bonus items available to help you you would choose them at the beginning of the level. Those bonus items could include special new tools or power boosts.
As you progress through the game you also build resource centers, which give you items like bricks. You can also build landmarks. This is neat because when you build a landmark you learn a little information about the real thing.
Check out the trailer for a better idea of how the game looks!
Doesn’t that look fun!
