It's a curious fact but, when Disney's animated film 'Finding Nemo' was released in 2003, its intended message was to save the beautiful clownfish and to keep them in the sea where they belong. Such was the effect of this emotive film, however, that millions were plucked from the oceans and sold on to parents who placated their screaming kids with tropical aquariums filled with brightly colored fish. Apparently, sales of clownfish rose by 40% over the next year or so but its estimated that 9 out of 10 perished pretty quickly. Now, I'm not suggesting that this game will have the same effect on the tropical fish population as Nemo did but, the fact is, kids of all ages love tropical fish and coral reefs.

Drippy Drop is a fun and addictive new game by first time developer Toby Johnson. As its name suggests, it draws on the 'drop' style game that many love to play these days and it’s all about fish and coral reefs. It's a beautifully designed game with eye catching and engaging graphics that range changes between simple 8bit to illustration to hyper-realism and features many levels - some of which are seriously challenging. The idea of the game is to build up your coral reef with as many colorful fish as possible and save the reef. Sometimes the levels are easy...sometimes they're hard. But that's the name of the game.

The game works on the theory that the ocean isn't doing so well and Drippy is the one to save it. Drippy, of course, represents the rain and it will have to 'soar through the sky' (the developer's words, not mine) to save and reclaim the reef. There are new worlds to traverse with evil enemies out to get you and four menacing bosses who are out to thwart your positive plans. In the best tradition of underwater action you'll find yourself having to collect keys that unlock treasure chests that you run into along the way and then you'll be able to gradually build up your fish stocks and regenerate the reef. There are dozens of exotic colorful fish to collect and they will help you as you go on your merry way. 

DrippyDrop may look to be a simple looking game but it's one of those games that is easy to pick up but difficult to master. It features over twenty levels that range from easy to quite challenging and is recommended for ages of 9 years and over. The game uses very simple and intuitive controls meaning that you can easily pick it up and play it whenever you have a spare moment. Because of this, it's safe to assume that it's a great game for both the casual gamers and the regular player. The difference between this and many similar games though is it's colorful and ever changing graphics and the storyline that runs through it. 

Drippy Drop is a very addictive little game that's perfect to play on your commute to work or school. It requires iOS 8.0 or later, is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and has something in it for people of all ages. It does feature some infrequent mild cartoon and fantasy violence but nothing to get too upset about. If you're looking for a new game to while away the time and are getting a little bored with the Candy Crushes of this world, you might want to take a look at Drippy Drop. It's available for free download at the App Store right now.
