    I played this at PAX 2011 on the Xbox 360. Glad to hear this game is still alive. And on steam too!

    Hey, Spencer…you check emails anymore?  I sent an email about this and posted on the open thread about this over a week ago. :/

    Oh man this is fantastic news.  This is my absolute favorite puzzle game series and I thought it was long dead.

    … So is this the series Puzzle Bobble ripped off when they created their gameplay? Sure looks like that series, but I can’t say I’ve ever heard of Magical Drop before.

    • Kibbitz

      Well, Puzzle Bobble is listed as being out by June 1994 while Magical Drop is 1995, if wikipedia is to be believed.

      It’s citing the Puzzle Bobble-esque mode as “new gameplay” so I don’t think that’s the case, no.

        You’re right. The main mode of the Magical Drop games is really nothing at all like Puzzle Bobble.

      i don’t think the earlier magical drop games had that bust a move mode. speaking of, is there an official bust a move/puzzle bobble online game?

    Game looks fun, art style looks… annoyingly rookie.  Really smoothly animated, but something about it feels off to me…

    i may have to wait for a psn release, to take advantage of local 4 player mode.

  • IkouKuhn

    I’ve downloaded and listened to the soundtrack…
    it’s unexpectedly quite beautiful for a puzzle game o_o

    one of my favorite puzzle game series! MG3 was a masterpiece and is probably the twitchiest puzzle game this side of Tetris the Grand Master.
