Droopy Blocks coming out Feb 2nd Crazy Puzzle/Action


Please check out gameplay videos for our new game Droopy Blocks! It is coming to iPad on Feb 2nd! We will be using this thread to update the latest content prior to launch.

If you love puzzle games but are looking for something new and different, something you have definitely never tried before Droopy Blocks is the game for you.


What is this “Droopy Blocks”

“Droopy Blocks” is a fresh new take on 2D action/puzzle game designed specifically for tablets. The Droopy Blocks are cute, living blocks of goo that were made in a secret laboratory. They were accidentally melted and now must be put back in their original shapes.

To get the Droopy Block back into its original shape the player uses little creatures called “Suckers” to suck the gelatinous block in different directions. While the Suckers pull the block in the direction the player chooses, the player holds the parts of the block they do not want to move with their fingers. Through this fun, finger-twisting and mind-bending gameplay the player can reshape the “Droopy Block”!

Key Features:
  • Innovative dripping and holding puzzle gameplay mechanic
  • 80 puzzles set in 4 diverse stages
  • Puzzle with character! The Droopy Blocks giggle when poked in the mouth or wince when stuck in the eye
  • A high-score, 5 minute, Championship mode that allows players to compete against each globally via Game Center leaderboards
  • Game Center Achievements
  • 4 profile slots so multiple people can play on the same device

The first 10 puzzles are free, get 70 more and Championship mode for 1.99! (Introductory price)

We are not using a publisher, so all the help we can get spreading the word is VERY much appreciated!

From the title and the icon, I assumed this was going to be another match 3 game (sigh), but from the game play video and the screen shots it is clearly something different. I can't wait to give this a try soon!

Thanks for checking it out slewis7!

I was really worried about people thinking this is a match 3 game. Any suggestions on the icon to make it not look like one?

Yes - somehow fit the words "not a match 3!" into the graphic. Seriously though, I think it is both the name and the icon that will give a match 3 impression. Hopefully both your marketing and word of mouth will successfully counter that. You are off to a good start here with the details you have uploaded.

Thanks again, please help us spread the anti-connect 3 word on this game

Why do you feel $1.99 is too expensive?

The first 10 puzzles are Free, and if you like the game you can get 70 more puzzles and a whole new game mode for one in-app purchase.

Thanks again for posting

I guess I will never understand the pricing complaints in these forums. Perhaps folks expect the developers to work for free. Last I checked a movie costs about $10. I know I can get at least a few hours entertainment out of an IOS game.

If I like the free 10 levels, I will gladly shell out $2 and consider myself lucky.
