Although it is like your classic bubble shooter game, you will not grow bored of this game. It may seem easy at first but you will soon learn you have a challenge. A challenge that has you addicted to playing for hours till you beat that person. The characters are adorable and the dialogue is hilarious.

Olds enjoyed a fun puzzle game. arcade game format was one.
One production company, "Data East" produced by the game, the arcade version of the 3 series.

After that "Neogeo" Money idol Exchange came out through the magical drop after a while, not you in it reach the kind of puzzle game.

Magical Drop 5 is released. 2012

Furthermore the PC version (Steam version)

Memories of the old games
Through a multi-play with more fun while you enjoy the benefits said.

옜날 오락실게임형식의 재미있게 즐겼던 퍼즐게임중에 하나였습니다.
원 제작사인 Data East에서 제작한 게임이며, 아케이드판으로는 3탄까지 나온 게임입니다.

그후에 Neogeo에서 나온 Money idol Exchange 나온 이후로는 매지컬드롭류의 퍼즐게임은 한동안 안나오다가 2012년에 매지컬드롭이 5탄으로 출시되었습니다.

더군다나 PC판(스팀판)으로 출시되었습니다.

옛 추억의 게임을 멀티플래이를통해 친구들이랑 같이 즐기는 장점을 지닌채로 나왔으니 좋은일 아닐까요...

I really want to recommend this game, because it is Magical Drop, and Magical Drop is one of the best puzzle games out there (1000x better than Bust a Move, which is so meh). And this is Magical Drop, but it's Magical Drop without Puzzle Mode, or the Quest Mode that was added in Magical Drop 3.

All it has available is Versus Mode, either in Story Mode or Online. Which is basically where you play Magical Drop against an npc or other player, to see who can get the most matches the fastest.

Puzzle Mode was just an endless mode by yourself, to see how long you could keep going before the game beat you. It got progressively harder as you went along, and it was the most fun mode in the game.

Quest mode added a small RPG element, or more board game element to the game, although not sure if that would work the same without requiring quarters like the arcade version did.

ANYWAY, for $.99 ($.89 on sale), the game is pretty fun, but without Puzzle Mode, it's just not complete. Until that is fixed, I can't really recommend it.

OH ALSO, this game does not like to run in full screen mode on large monitors, so run it windowed.

At such a low price, you and a bunch of friends need to play this game. Sure there will be arguments and hate but it's all for the greater good.

I don't know why people say game is bad. I played it for awhile and did not notice anything wrong out of the ordinary and my video card is not even a Geforce 8800 but rather a mobile Geforce 8400M GS with a 2.4 ghz processor and 4GB Ram and it runs smoothly. Game is a bit quick on the reflexes however - you need a quick thumb on the dpad and the buttons in order to clear those bubbles. Think of Bust A Move on steroids except your in a magical tarot fantasy setting and not a dinosaur land like Bub and Bob was in Bubble Bobble. I have not played the online mode but don't think I want to play this mode because I always play games by myself. Easily worth the 89 cent purchase during the sale. Hey I don't whine I just buy on sale :)

There was a time in my life I'd sit and rock backwards and forwards in a dark room screaming aloud, paranoid of ever becoming a success, as I repeatedly hit my own head trying to ease the pain I reminisced of a time I served as a corteous court jester with an affinity for large shiny orbs, each day rampantly slamming orb after orb against other orbs in order to chain righteous combos to please my overlord masters, suddenly it hit me, why was I wasting my time in a meager businessman's act? I soon resigned, divorced my wife, gave my children up for adoption and found myself in the sweet embrace of the Magical Drop universe, that was then, this is now and I order you all to quit being malnutritioned slaves to an endless grind and take a handful of these magical freedom fries, buy now and see zero regret in your future.

So FRUUUSTRATING! Mainly because it has so much potential, however many key things about the game is broken or lacking.

I've had several crashes, no native joystick/gamepad support, alt-tab during a game over causes issues on comming back. The AI on normal is absurdly easy then becomes absurdly difficult (may be on my part, however good old google fails to bring up much on strategies or information on the game other than old hype and reviews), buttons fail to respond when many things are going on concurrently.

Aside from all the complaning its' the basis of a really GREAT game, and that's really just a shame. The music, and voice acting are confusingly lightyears more polished than the rest of the gameplay & art.

I wish I could give this game a Yes/No recommendation, No to the game, yes to the ideas and concepts it has.

From the love of Magical Drop III comes my hatred for the unpolished and unsupported westernized "MDV".

The game is broken, period. The glitches will show up sooner or later, specially with the special blocks that randomly won't work during chains. I did the un-fun tedious method to unlock a certain character, it doesn't work for me at all thanks to the glitch (**ck the character select code for Magical Drop III 3x "C"). Lack of communication and support from the developer makes this alpha test product irrelevant at best ( http://i.imgur.com/FQpuSl4.png ).

No wonder is one dollar lol.

I liked the game at the beginning, but the issues I experienced during my local playthroughs made me depise it. Until its fixed my opinion won't change.

I will keep this thing called a "game" as a reminder of a mistaken purchase I shouldn't have done...

Awful art style, and annoying characters. However, the gameplay is fun for a couple hours. I'd recommend picking up the game with a friend, and playing with them if you really want to play a new puzzle game.

An Excellent Puzzle Game that makes its' Return from the SNK Neo-Geo Arcades. Magical Drop is such a neat Puzzle Series from the late Data East Company & SNK Neo-Geo.

I like it for what it is. It's a nice time-waster kind of game. I would like if the game included a single-player quick game mode.

This game is awesome, if you like the older Magical Drop games it's a must buy. The game could stand to be improved with more solo modes, like an endless mode. But if you like playing against computers and other people, there's plenty of that.
