Futurama: Game of Drones is now available
Good news everyone! The Futurama game we first got a glimpse of back in November is now finally available in the Play Store worldwide! It’s called Futurama: Game of Drones, and it’s a match-4 puzzle game that incorporates all the classic animated humor that we all loved from the TV show.
In this game, you’ll attempt to help Planet Express make deliveries by matching drones. Deliveries are completed once you line up four, but lining up larger numbers will create a special drone, which is really where the strategy begins to show. You’ve got to play the board carefully, anticipating how the implications of your matching will have an effect on moves in the future.
Many of the power-ups and abilities are call-backs and references to popular gags from the series. But this doesn’t look like one of those show-based mobile games that’s all reference and no new content. The game was developed by Futurama creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, and it was written by a veteran writer of the show Patric M. Verrone. Although we haven’t had the chance to give it the full look it deserves, these writing credits bode well for the game’s content.
A little extra Futurama humor is always welcome, so if this sounds like the kind of game for you, click the button below to download it from the Play Store. Give it a whirl, then head back over here to let us know what your first impressions were in the comments!
