Combining the popular Futurama TV show with a match three mechanic is the backdrop of Futurama: Game of Drones. Overall it’s a mesh between two worlds done quite well, delivering gameplay that requires some strategy and keep the Futurama fans happy at the same time.
While it can’t fully escape the traps of a free to play title Futurama: Game of Drones comes much closer than most games in this puzzle mobile genre. Your matching tile for the game ahead are delivery drones and unlike most standard games you’ll be looking to match 4 at a time rather than the usual 3 that most games employ.
As is typical you’ll be swiping your finger in all sorts of directions to line up 4 of the same coloured drones to make a match. There is of course various rewards for making matches greater than the minimum to help you quickly clear a large area of the game board.
For specific level objectives Futurama: Game of Drones switches between a handful of different goals from matching a certain number of drones, to clearing slime on the tiles or countering some sort of other obstacle on the board itself. Most of these levels are balanced quite nicely that you’ll need to plan out a few moves should you want success.
For levels that are just a tad too difficult or you aren’t getting the setup you need to complete the level there are boosts available to help you pass. All through each level players will also be bombarded with lines from their favourite characters, particularly when making powerful matches.
With it’s Futurama wrapping Futurama: Game of Drones is by far one of the better titles in the genre although doesn’t full escape the trappings of the freemium match genre.
