Diamond Drop Is the second edition of the Diamond Drop series. Is another puzzle game but with a little twist. The basic idea is to create matches of diamond-like tiles on a board, but instead of doing that by swapping the tiles this game has a little twist: you have to drop a tile you choose and when you have it on your hands you have to throw it up again, of course in the correct place to create a match.
The basic layout of the game is a funny character – would be you – standing at the floor, and an arrangement of tiles of different colors, coming down from the roof. With your mouse you can move sideways, and a dotted line with an arrow end indicates which tile you’re going to pick up if you click your mouse button. Once you have the tile with you, again you can move to the correct spot and throw it up by clicking again. If you create a match, all the tiles involved will be collected and weighed on a scale. When the tiles of the match disappear from the arrangement, the tiles around them rearrange. If a new match occurs, a chain reaction is triggered.
When you have collected enough gems (tiles), a piece of jewelry will be decorated and then you can sell it to your customers and fill your safe with coins. You have to fill up the safe with coins to pass the level.
When you first enter the game, you’ll be asked for a player name and see the welcome screen with the following options:
- Change Player: after you create one or more players, they’ll be saved. When you enter into this submenu, you’ll be asked for a name as a new player. It’s possible to have a list of different players and record their performance. This way, you can play home tournaments with family and friends.
