Dropship is terrible. Isotope (not really 3D) is really good.

Dropship is awesome! Good ol' retro gameplay with a modern look. Challenging and varied levels = win. It can get tough but that's just another point in the "pros" column.

I played Dropshit for a couple minutes and deleted it immediately. I gave it another go and deleted it again. God-awful gameplay.

It is a game that takes more than a couple minutes to play.. but you are not alone.. it only has a 2.5 star rating even though it is one of the better free games.

Yep, that's the one :-) planet is randomly generated each time you fire up the game. The gameplay is free movement, and fast. Exactly what I wanted. Imagine defender in 3d and that's pretty close. I wanted that kind of manic gameplay but with no movement restrictions.

Ill try and do a new video later ...
