Coin Drop for Android [SassiBoB Review]
Today on the BoB-Only Show, BoB proves how true marketing taglines can be. Coin Drop is a physics-based puzzle game made by Full Fat Productions. Its tagline is, “So addictive it will drive you mad.” At it’s core, this is one of those arcade games where you stick in a quarter, and the quarter falls, hitting pegs along the way.
