The App Store Editors' Note:

Memorable music and irresistible gameplay pair perfectly in the tile-matching Domino Drop. This Tetris-like puzzler has you matching dominoes to prevent stack-ups. But as the board gets busier, the colors get more varied, and thoughtful strategy quickly grows challenging. The gameplay feels polished and familiar, but it’s the tiny details packed in every corner—the clink of the falling dominoes, the turntable spinning fuzzy, warm jazz—that makes each match pure bliss.

At this point, you might already know how the game works. Since its a tetris-like puzzler, you have to stack them together to make the board less crowded and move towards your goal. Each domino is assigned a color and a number, so you have to devise a proper strategy in order to complete the challenge. In addition to this, the busier the board gets, the color of the domino is varied which makes it more difficult. In short, the game is easy to understand but hard to master.

Visually, the Domino Drop title is pretty minimalist and colorful. The board is placed in the middle of the screen with a score board on the left. The audio of the game is pretty soothing to be honest, sort of like a plain jazz. Overall, the  gaming experience is pretty good and for some of you, it might bring up the nostalgic days from your past. Moreover, since it's offered for free, you should definitely try the app for yourself.
