- Full Review
It hasn't taken much time for DJArts Games to create a sequel to their Egg Drop Arcade series and on the surface of it you'd have to be forgiven if you thought that not much has truly changed in the last two months. Thankfully Egg Drop Arcade 2 has been given more than a colorful resurfacing, sporting 24 new levels that are as fun as they are quirky to enjoy.
Much like the original game, gameplay revolves around obtaining a set amount of tokens by dropping an egg through a series of obstacles that aim to smash, burn or zap it in to oblivion. A green zone at the top of the screen represents where you can tap and launch your egg from, while tilting the iPhone allows you to exert some control over its direction as it flies, bumps or rolls its way through the various hazards. Bonus points are awarded for each bump the egg takes and multiplyers can be earned through power-ups or by successfully chaining tokens after each drop.
Egg Drop's pixel-art style has carried over to the sequel with a healthy dash of bright color added in to give the game a friendlier, approachable appearance that works well with its cartoonish digital backgrounds. The music is a mix of light electronic beats with an industrial edge to match the game's appearance.
Fans of Egg Drop Arcade may not get enough of a change to justify upgrading to the sequel, but for those interested in checking out this strange arcade game this is definitely the version to grab.
