Toy Story Drop! Is a new game for the iOS and Android platforms that takes the familiar gameplay from the match-three games that we all love, and marries it to the Toy Story universe. Your goal in this game is to go from level to level, completing challenges, unlocking new characters, and making it as far as you can into the game – and knowing the history of this kind of game, there are going to be a LOT of levels to play with all of the coming developer updates.
You can earn coins, manage your lives, and collect all kinds of rewards as you go. Read on for some tips and tricks for Toy Story Drop!
Your goal is to match three in a row at minimum, but matching four or five, of course, brings you special tiles. The effects are similar to other match-three games, in that four tiles in a row releases a line-clearing block, four tiles in a square releases a fish that knocks off a required piece to complete the quest, and five in a row lets out a rainbow tile. Five in an L or T-shape releases a bomb that knocks out 3×3 tiles.
Combining tiles together makes even better special effects. Combine two horizontal or vertical tiles to make a three-row and three-column blasting explosion. Combine two bombs to clear a 5×5 area. Combine two fish to release six fish. Combine any other piece with a fish to turn the fish into the other tile (bomb, line blaster, etc).
Combine two rainbow pieces to clear the entire board. Combine a rainbow piece and another special tile to unleash an army of that same special tile.
Focus on the main goal of the level, which is either to clear specific numbers of one or two types of tiles, or to drop a specific special piece to the bottom. But deviate from the task if you have to in order to earn special tiles to blow up large chunks of the board and make it easier to finish your quest.
When you win, you won’t use a life, but if you lose, you do use up a life. If you run entirely out of lives, you can use coins to buy more, or you can wait for twenty minutes for each one of your lives to come back. A full five-star revival takes an hour and 40 minutes to come back.
You can spend 200 coins for a full life restoration, but there is no point in doing so unless all of your lives are gone. If you’re missing only one or two lives, don’t bother with buying more lives unless you’re rich and you can afford endless in-app purchases with coins.
