CNET Editors' review

If you think most puzzle games are too slow for you, AstroPop will change your mind. You'll likely figure out how the game works almost immediately. The goal is to match bricks with other like-colored bricks to destroy them. However, the wall of bricks steadily advances upon you, so you must use both your reflexes and your mind. Once you've earned enough points, you'll have access to the Supa Weapon, which lets you demolish many bricks at once, regardless of color. You can choose from two games, although only one of the game's four characters is available in the 60-minute trial version. The modern, sophisticated graphics impressed us, and we liked hearing the female voice comment on our achievements. If other puzzle games have lost their ability to entertain you, we think AstroPop will provide a welcome challenge.

    "Everything (except the price) is good about Astropop"

    July 18, 2004  |  

    Version: AstroPop 1.0

    Summary

    It's easy to understand and once you begin playing it's addicting. The only setback is the (almost) $20 you have to fork out if you want to buy it. It should be free on MSN Gaming Zone or Yahoo Games.

    "Awesome arcade/puzzle game with killer effects!"

    May 13, 2004  |  

    Version: AstroPop 1.0

    Summary

    This game is great: kick butt graphics and effects, awesome sound and music, and tons of leveling up and a funny story line. It's easy to learn too, no need to read any manuals or text files, just play it and in a minute you've got it. It's one of the most professional, polished looking shareware games I've seen.
