Posted by on

After nearly a month of hard work, I am proud to introduce version 2.1.0 of Drop It: Block Paradise! This is a major update I have been working on for the past 22 days with each day having spent several hours working hard on. Here is what has been changed:

  • Improved level design for more balanced & fun gameplay.
  • High Resolution mode (Xbox Series S|X only & PC)
  • Improved Graphics & Performance
  • Cross Play & Cloud Saves
  • Ability to skip a level
  • 10 new Bonus Levels

A major part of this update is of course the updated graphics and High/Low Resolution mode. The game now defaults to High (except for Xbox One) and let's you choose between either version at any time. If your PC might be older, you can always choose Low Resolution and play the game as it was originally made.

The rebalanced level design was another big factor with this update. Over half of the 150 levels were redesigned, from simple changes to completely new levels. The main idea behind this change was that the previous levels were either too frustrating or too much based entirely on luck, and that is just not fun. So I went through each level and see what I could do to improve it. After all, the game is suppose to be a fun puzzle game, not a frustrating one.

Finally, the last big introduction was the Cross Play & Cloud Saves. It is now possible to play the game on Xbox and then continue on the PC, and so on. You now have the ability to Upload your Saves and then Download them on a different device! This will very much be important when we launch on Steam next month.

Here a few screenshots of the improvements and features. Portals also got a visual update, they are now a bit more interesting to look at.
