Games that can be played with only one finger are favored for their inherently having extremely undemanding controls. At the same time, they’re often dismissed for seemingly having extremely easy gameplay. But as evidenced by games such as Drop Not, not all one-touch games can be easily played and deservedly shrugged off in one go.

Perilous paths. In Drop Not, you have to guide a cute cuboid character as it makes its way through the perilously twisty paths, lest it drop into the bottomless abyss below. As your character continuously rolls, you need to watch where you’re going and anticipate corners, at which you need to tap to make your character turn. Be sure to time your taps properly, since tapping too early or too late will result in your doing exactly what the name of the game asks you not to do.
Puzzling parts. The puzzling parts of Drop Not emerge from the various obstacles and forking paths that you need to work your way around across the game’s 20 handcrafted levels. There are blocks that suddenly pop up or fall down, pads that take you in certain disorienting directions, teleports that transport you to surprise spots, and more. There are also items that you can pick up to help you along the way, such as score multipliers and speed reducers.
What is it about?
In Drop Not, you have to guide a cute cuboid character as it makes its way through the perilously twisty paths, lest it drop into the bottomless abyss below. As your character continuously rolls, you need to watch where you’re going and anticipate corners, at which you need to tap to make your character turn (as in Cliff Hopper). Be sure to time your taps properly, since tapping too early or too late will result in your doing exactly what the name of the game asks you not to do.
For those who...
- enjoy playing one-touch arcade games.

Not for those who...

- have slow reflexes.
Why we love it
Drop Not is a deceptively simple game. On top of that, it’s a gorgeous-looking game, with graphical themes of sky, desert, water, and night, and with an aesthetically pleasing look and feel that combines the meditative quality of Monument Valley and the adorable whimsy of Crossy Road. It also features original music that is often relaxing and at times panic-inducing. In short, Drop Not is a reaction-based arcade puzzle tapper you would want to miss not.
