Bubo Drop arrives on iOS
Today Marvelous Games, the European division of Japanese publisher MarvelousAQL (who are best known for the highly-acclaimed titles Harvest Moon, No More Heroes and RunBot,) has released a new free match-3 game for iOS called Bubo Drop.
According to the developers, Bubo Drop requires three things; skill, speed, and a bit of luck. You will have 60 seconds to score as many points as possible by matching colored blocks together, as they are dropped from above and continue to rise. If you match 3 (or more) blocks of the same color, they burst into stars and give you points, with your total score being posted on the weekly leaderboard once time elapses.
As you would expect, chain reactions and cascading combos help you rack up points rather quickly, and there are several game-changing power-ups. These include the ability to freeze time as well as Color Bombs, and all eight of the powers can be utilized in a variety of ways to help you get the best possible score.
“Bubo Drop really has the instant fun factor, which is what mobile gaming is all about.” said Steven Tarry, Marketing Manager, Marvelous Games. “Of all the games we have helped to create, I find myself playing Bubo the most often. Getting a high score is always satisfying, and overtaking my friends on the leaderboard never gets old… and I can’t believe nobody else has made a bird-based game on iOS before.”
Can you make it to the top of the leaderboards?
