GumDrops - Action Puzzle game - Promo codes

GumDrops (GumDropsLite) is what you get if you turn the game play of Tetris on its head.


Youtube link | Pop Up


Gum drop pieces fall from the top of the screen 2 at a time, and it is up to you to guide them into groups of 4 or more to explode them off the screen.

The game includes 4 different game modes, wrapped in a beautiful candy coated graphics shell.

GumDrops was programmed by myself, with fellow TouchArcade forum member warpser creating the graphics.

To celebrate the release of GumDrops we are having a contest to let people win promo codes to the full game.

Download and play the lite version, take a screen shot of the statistics screen at the end of the game, and post it in the thread.

Tomorrow I'll hand out promo codes to the top 10 high scores.

If you do download either version, and enjoy it, please give it a review on iTunes, and let the people back here know too!

I'm getting the Lite and trying it but I suck at games generally so I probably won't win. Won't stop me trying!

Don't check this site or private messages often.

I gotta say, I'm impressed. It looks like you've improved since you released Upsi Runner . I'm not trying to sound mean, it's genuine. This game looks good

Fun little game, reminds me a lot of a cuter Dr. Mario.

I like the little expressions they make, although you don't get much time to look at them while playing.

Stykman - What about the controls do you find difficult?

the fact that i have press different buttons to rotate the gumdrops.
maybe you could put the arrows on one side of the screen like a dpad and the rotating button on the other side
i dont think u need 2 rotating buttons

hi shen! until what time is the contest? im going to post at the latest possible time i've been playing the lite version a lot and it's a lot of fun.

hope there is a "down" arrow though because, sometimes, the balls just take a lot of time to drop.

zvnthynn - touch the bottom part of the game board to drop pieces faster.
The contest will go for another 12 hours or so, but feel free to post a screen shots as you go along, and I'll take your best one.

stykman - having 2 rotate buttons give the user more ability to rotate the piece into tight situations. 1 rotates clockwise, the other goes counter clockwise. If you like you can just use 1, and press it more often.

Thanks for your idea though, it is food for thought.
