What is it?
I’ve missed Futurama. Ever since they called it quits I’ve been wanting to see more from the cast. So when I saw Game of Drones pop up on my phone, I was delighted. It’s a game not too dissimilar from Bejeweled or Candy Crush, where you have to move similarly coloured drones to a cluster of at least four to make them disappear. They’re given a little backstory with the Planet Express company, which, honestly, does seem like something Professor Farnsworth would do, so it really does fit in well with the overall Futurama Universe.

Script written well to reflect the characters exactly.

I wasn’t really that big a fan of either the Bejeweled games or the Candy Crush series, but I really am enjoying playing through Game of Drones, although it is likely that Futurama appeals to me so much that I am finding myself more engaged in the series. It definitely has a few flaws, but for a free game, it’s terrific fun and very addictive. There’s even a lot of cut-scenes featuring all the characters we’ve grown to love over the course of Futurama that are really fun to watch. Some may complain about it being just another re-skin of one of the aforementioned games, but I contest that it is so much more, and any Futurama fan should definitely give it a try.
