Selected Articles

  • "It's an easy-to-understand game that's hard to put down once you get started."
    - Brian Crecente, Polygon
  • "The themes in the game operate as a metaphor for the tumultuous period in which it was created, which is great, I love it. This game will live on as window into the struggles of this time, which is all too rare in subject matter tackled by games."
    - Adam Carr, Linebreak Collective
  • "My preview was very short, but the short time I had, I only wanted to play it more."
    - Brett Hale, MKAU Gaming Australia
  • "One of the most striking things about Mallow Drops was how intuitive it was. After only a few minutes with the game it’s easy to learn how it all works, and you find yourself moving through the levels with ease. That is, until the difficulty is raised ever so slightly, keeping you guessing and thinking."
    - Ben Pfarrer, Aussie Geek
  • "...a deceptively cutesy puzzle game that’s a lot more complicated than it seems..."
    - Nick Hudson, Savegame
  • "I had a lot of fun with adorable Aussie-made puzzler Mallow Drops."
    - Michelle Starr, CNET
