At first glance, Drop 7 looks like almost every other puzzle game. You have an object at the top of the screen — a dot — that you have to drop into a grid. The dots are numbered 1 through 7, but there are also grey dots with no numbers on them. Also, you aren’t just matching the numbers up; there’s a slight twist to it.

The way you play the game is that you want to make rows and columns of certain numbers of dots. For example, if you want to clear out all the 6s in a column or row, you need to have 6 dots in that column or row. The other dots will fall down and remain until the column or row equals their number. In addition, you have grey dots that need to be “cracked open” to reveal their number by making a dot pop directly next to one. Doing this twice reveals the number, then you continue as usual.
