Droplitz promotion at Steam - 80% off until August 28, 2009
« on: August 22, 2009, 10:35:46 AM »
there is a 80% discount for the game, Droplitz which is valid until August 28th. so the price is now $1.99, down from the normal price of $9.99. i haven't played this game before but the metacritic score shows a respectable 78/100.

Quote from: website
Immerse yourself in this addictive puzzler that's all about strategically twisting and connecting mismatched dials to save precious droplitz. Just making a single junction is child's play; can you master the art of the combo or will you let your pipes runneth over? Be warned: losing too many droplitz can be hazardous to your ability to win. With four unique play modes, a variety of board sizes, and infinite replayability, Droplitz promises to drain all your time away.

So, how is the game? I'm tempted to buy this with such a low price, but there are no demos at Steam, and the reviews aren't that helpful.

Be warned that the difficulty of unlocking things is rather high.

@Lashiec: i spent the whole afternoon playing Droplitz and my take is that it's easy to game to get involved but hard to master. as cthorpe mentions, the level of points needed to unlock new play modes is rather steep. but having said that, i'd say go get it since there's only two days left. :)

Being addictive and easy to learn but hard to master are the key points in all good puzzle games IMO, so I bought it this afternoon. I have played it a couple of times and it's kinda fun, perfect for that quick puzzle fix :). Thanks for your opinions on the game!
