Don't buy this. It's broken. It will never be fixed.

It worked fine for approximately eight minutes before crashing. After that, I ended up with a host of issues. The game now keeps insisting that I have the demo version. It never remembers my display settings. The menus keep appearing as unreadable glyphs. Don't waste your time with this piece of trash. The developers should be ashamed of themselves.

Game crashes randomly in single player and I can't seem to connect to anyone online or have anyone connect to my servers.
The game was cheap but it seems to be broken, and it should be removed from Steam. The developer seems to have abandoned this game as well.
Do not buy this, it might crash randomly and I can't get it working online.

What happens when a small French indie studio gets their hands on one of Data East's best franchises?

I played a ton of Magical Drop 3 back in the day. It's probably best game made by Data East. Sorry Windjammers and Street Hoop. However Data East died in the early 2000s, so I was a bit surprised to see a new Magical Drop pop up in Steam. I bought it for five euros when it was released.

What I expected: Magical Drop HD
What I got: Magical Drop for Tablets

Full of bugs and questionable design choices, this was a major letdown for me. Even though the game is sharper and higher resolution, the art and effects used look a lot worse than in the original arcade games. it really gives you the "cheap mobile game" feeling. The game also has characters from another game called ghostlop, which doesn't fit into the game at all. Could have spent that time making more MagiDrop characters as there are only eleven in the game while MD3 had over twenty.

Worst part is that the Developer Golgoth Studio promised a patch that would fix the issues in the game. It was supposed to be released somewhere during 2013, but right now is 2015 and I'm still waiting for that patch. Well, not seriously waiting for it, but still. Same studio has also a Toki remake in the works. Or had. It was greenlit in 2013 and there has been no word about it after that, so it's probably vaporware now.

If you liked Magical Drop, don't buy this game. If you are just looking for a cheap puzzle game, then don't buy this game. It's not worth it and there are better alternatives available.

AUDIO: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD                         AESTHETIC: Bubbly
MEMORABILITY: Alright                                      WORTH: Do Not Buy.

PROS: It's Magical Drop on PC. People have wanted this for a while.

CONS: On occasion, this game will request that I purchase the full version. I've only ever had the full version on my computer, never the demo. Why am I getting the demos notifications? Multiplayer has trouble working, game is full of spelling errors and crashes. Voices are unbelievably grating. Achievements are broken. The developer is a slimeball. Huge jumps in difficulty.

OVERALL: The developer said they'd fix these issues, but has refused to comment on it since. They "apologized" to users who spent money on it by dropping the price to 1 USD. How does that make it any better for the people scammed out of their money? They have moved to a new developer name and are now taking yet another beloved franchise and giving the illusion of restoration most likely just to scam more people out of their money through their nostalgia. Tactics like this are despicable, this dev has so little interest in their products that their steam adverts are recycled from phone app pages with no editing. This behavior should not meet Steam's quality standards.

                                                    
SCORE: 1/10

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.
