Pop ‘Em Drop ‘Em Same Game is a simple block elimination game based on a well-known formula. Clearing blocks of the same colour gives you points, and you beat the puzzle when the grid is clear. In this version there are no new stages to progress onto – the grid is simply renewed with another set of blocks. Difficulty is adjusted through settings, which also allow you to customise the look and feel of the game. The graphics are very basic with familiar 2D visuals reminiscent of the Atari era.
Pop ‘Em is easy to pick up and play. With repetitive gameplay and lack of depth, the game is good for a few minutes of fun, but that’s all it offers.
