Masters of Drop!

Here's one elite dude getting almost 2000 points in Drop. YouTube poster litelol is claiming 2248 points as his best - which I am not doubting after watching the video.



I think we can all learn something from this guy, myself included. First of all, Drop needs an online high score system. Soon! I am working on it but I'll put my efforts in another gear now, so great achievements like this do not go unrecorded.

Second, you guys are skilled! I keep hearing about scores in the thousands. Very impressive indeed. I'll be sure to keep this in mind to make the game a bit more interesting for you pros out there. For instance, only red diamonds for such a long time gets pretty boring doesn't it?

  3. It would actually be nice with a global highscore. Also, the current highscore should be uploaded first.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes, that's important! I'll make sure that all current high scores carry over to the global rankings.

    Now I just have to hurry up and finish the update...

  5. I got 3581 as a highscore got 999stars and the game quit keeping score

    ReplyDelete
  6. yea ive gotten up to 999 stars and they stop incrementing after that, kind of sucked because i probably would of gotten at least 500 more points.

    ReplyDelete
  7. oh also another issue is that there should of been a high score reset, or at least a seperate score board for the old version of the game when the new version was updated, since the game play changed.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow! You guys must have some serious reflexes to survive that long! I never did not even think it was possible, that's why I only allocated 3 digits for the stars.

    I am aware of this issue now. Thanks for discovering it! I will fix it in the next update.

  9. Also, does anyone have any videos of a good 'Drop'? It'd be nice to put some here on the blog to show how the game is meant to be played :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. And... it's possible change the diamond colours after the yellow one? Happens as at first, see the same colour is boring.
    Thanks for fix the 999 stars... I discover now... and it's not good ;)

    PS: Sorry for my English... ;)

  11. I broke my record today with a 2,096, with 673 stars. I was in the yellow level. Is there a high score list anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thanks for all the feedback! ...and more great scores! Good Job :)

    @Juanmi Yes, There might be room for some more colors, any particular you like ;)

    @John & SWAN I'm sorry that there is no online High Score list yet! It's more difficult to program than I thought (plus I don't have much free time now). But as soon as I know when I can have it ready I'll be sure to let you know.

  13. Great game. One little thing I can't figure out -- how many points do you get for falling through each hole? It seems like it's usually three or four, not counting the bonus stars.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Dear Drop! Thank You! I have a thing I don't understand. Unfortunately when I play one game for a long time, the scores of the stars are stop at 999 :''( Soon I will try to take a photo, but I don't have digital camera now). New record is: 2978 :$

    ReplyDelete
  15. Good question about points for falling down! It's never really explained is it?

    Actually, your score is based on the total distance you manage to fall during the course of the game.

    Currently you get around 10 points for falling a distance equal to the height of the screen. So for example, 500 points means you've put a distance of about 50 screen-heights behind you.

    That's why you get around 3-4 points for passing through each platform, the increase is based how much further down you manged to get.

    That was a long explanation for something so simple. :)

    @SWAN Wow! 2978! I'm embarrassed to tell you my score now ;)

  17. I've got the same problem with the score of the stars -.-
    My highscore is 3210! Is it possible that you can add more collors at the end?

  21. hello red drop, i've been loving your game for 10 days now and was expecting a place like this, where drop lovers could talk about their scores and game improvments. i'm approaching the 2000's now so where's the highscore board?
    please let us know!
    i might also lend a PHP hand if needed ***
    have all a good fall -

  22. Just got 3560, 2bad it doesnt count stars after 999 cuz that would've boosted my score ALOT! I Hope there will be a fix for that! Also a highscore system would be awesome because this game is so freakin fun!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Excelente juego, es un pique ir superándose, mi record es 5019, si alguien lo supera se lo agradezco así tengo algo por lo que seguir mejorando XD

  24. my high score is 3451..

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cool! more great scores!

    And yes, there will be a high score system. Right now I have to fix a problem with Drop that causes it to crash on Nexus S...

    As a temporary solution for high scores I was thinking to put up a page with screenshots of scores on this blog...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow you guys make me feel proud.

    I got 4376.

    And yeah the yellow colour sucks at the end. THe purple is the best.

    I wish it went over 999 starts. Would have had a way higher score.

    ReplyDelete
  27. First off, great job on Drop! I've had my Android device for about a year and Drop is the only game I play. My high score is 3262.

    Anyway, I also happen to be a programmer. I'm a Drop loyalist, so I was wondering, are you looking for any contributors for stuff like the high score system? I don't do much Android development, but I am a PHP/MySQL developer with about 8 years experience. I also spend a long time in the Flash game industry, so I'm aware of a number of concepts that can be used to create the most secure high score boards, since most of them are way too cheatable.

    Anyway, if you need any help or advice, especially wit the server-side end, feel free to shoot me an email. I'd love to contribute to my favorite game in some we besides just playing it every minute haha!

  28. Mmmmmm.... :o i have got exactly 3900 points with 999 stars. I just dissappoint that the colour didn't change after the second yellow area :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. Is there a way to pause the game?

    ReplyDelete
  30. 4995 points, super! but on account of color in the end, you're right

    ReplyDelete
  31. what is the world record i have 5195

  32. I really enjoy playing that game. Though it really frustrates me if I can't go on to the next level.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 6752 my record. Game becomes boring after 2000. There should be more colors(some extreme colors so you cant focus) and at the end it ought to be a little faster. For non-believers http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/51/1306682675346.jpg/
