Futurama is known for its many witty characters which makes the cartoon all the rage for many. However, in Game of Drones, it is not the type of game that you would expect from the cartoon series. Nevertheless, it is hard to find fault in its otherwise simplistic nature.
Futurama: Game of Drones is a Great Way to Pass the Time With Characters From the Popular Cartoon Series
Once you start playing this mobile Futurama game, it is hard not to immediately compare it with the likes of Candy Crush. There are colorful blocks that you have to match up so they can be destroyed, and each level has a main objective that you need to complete in order to progress. But the question here is, why a puzzler? It would make sense if the game was made into an adventure style of gameplay or a visual novel type of game. So where’s the connection with the cartoon series besides the characters?
As far as many could tell, there is no essential link between this mobile title to the famous cartoon series. Besides, it’s a game built around a very decent pun – Futurama: Game of Drones. This very clever play with words can have as much as sense as the cartoon itself, and if you’re trying to make sense about a whole lot of things while watching the animated series, then you will find that most of the “sense” that they’re trying to portray are mud. However, that’s what makes the series, as well as the game, so much fun.
Onwards about Game of Drones, it is a color-matching game, and you’re tasked with linking up a minimum of four drones of the same type to remove them from the board. The concept is not one that you would call “unique,” however the hexagonal tiles are clearly something quite new to the genre. Other puzzlers, such as the aforementioned Candy Crush, will have squares that would create the board for each level.
There’s also the usual case of getting powerups to assist you if you’re ever in a pinch. For instance, there’s a powerup that will let you clear five or more like-colored drones. You can get these if you can clear multiple drones in a single move. Multiple powerups can also combine together to become more effective in clearing more drones across the board.
And of course, mobile games, especially this one about Futurama, will have micro-transactions. You can spend as much as $49.99 on a single purchase to purchase in-game currency. The in-game currency can then be expended to purchase power-ups.
