Drop7: Tetris for the smartphone generation

Drop7 is a fun and addicting game that uses both skill and logic. You must drop numbered disks into columns in order to make that disk’s number match the total number of disks in that row or column. Players rack up points by getting combos with rows and columns or chaining together dropping discs. Sound confusing? Watch the video after the jump.

Three game types are available including normal, hardcore, and sequence. Normal is a relaxed easy mode of the game at a slower pace. Hardcore is a faster game which makes it a more intense, difficult game. Sequence gives you the same combination of discs so you can master the strategy to compare yourself against others around the world.

Drop7 was originally released to the iPhone and was recently ported to Android. Wired Magazine’s Clive Thompson called Drop7 “derangedly awesome” and Edge named it the 2nd best iPhone game ever.

Android fans can purchase Drop7 from the Android Market for $2.99. It is not currently compatible with HTC Hero handsets, but an update is coming soon. Hopefully this iPhone-turned-Android developer can reduce the size of the game (8.7 MB) in their next release.
