The Friday Game: Drop7

Edge Magazine’s website featured Drop7 as this week’s Friday Game.

“This late in the day, the internet hardly needs another article about how good Drop7 is. Yes, it’s certainly the greatest thing to ever emerge from an ARG; yes, it’s probably the best game on the iPhone; yes, it’s possibly the finest puzzler since Alexey Pajitnov started hacking around on a computer back at the Soviet Academy of Sciences.”

“It’s not just that it’s sparse but attractive, either, or that the true ramifications of the game mechanics unfold in devilish interlocking spirals of understanding. It’s more about the social side – the way you evangelise Drop7 to other people. There’s always a sense, as with Tetris, that you’re not teaching friends the rules to a new game so much as training them to do something they’re going to spend quite a lot of the rest of their lives doing.”
