This puzzle game will keep you twisting for hours. The game board is made out of dials. Each dial contains a path. Some paths are straight, others are bendy and still others split off in multiple directions. Turn dials to line up the paths from the top of the board to the bottom and guide blobs of stuff (Droplitz) safely to the end. Droplitz fall into the board faster over time so the pace gets pretty intense. There are plenty of additional Game Modes, Board Sizes, Difficulties and Themes to unlock.
Classic Mode is the core game and includes plenty of bonuses. Eventually Zen dials appear and help boost your score - they’re worth 500 points times the number of Zen dials used. So if you create a path with three Zen dials they each become worth 1,500 points. When you combine that with the multipliers from other bonuses like Chain Reactions you can rack up really high scores.
In Zendurance Mode the Droplitz fall a little faster to start with but don’t speed up over time, so dying is a lot less likely and it’s easier to get high scores. You can also pick which theme you want to play on.
In Power Up Mode you are given a variety of Power Ups (what else?!). These can be used to bomb dials if they’re proving difficult to get rid of. You can also Slow Down the Droplitz or even Freeze the board completely. This gives you a nice ice effect and stops Droplitz falling in for long enough to make some really complex paths.
Droplitz requires a Radeon X1300 256MB graphics card with a Pentium 4 1.5GHz or Athlon XP 1500+ processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. Also your PC needs 1 GB RAM to meet the rec specs and run at 60 frames. You will require a DirectX 9 GPU.
