It's amazing how the simple things can sometimes be the most enjoyable, and Drop Off is testament to that.

The game has nothing in the way of graphics or sound, or even color and yet it's virtually impossible to put down. Your mission in this one is to roll a ball down a series of platforms by dropping it through the hole in each one.

Sounds easy right? Well, it's not because the platforms are scrolling upwards all the time and if your ball gets caught on a platform when it reaches the top of the screen then it's game over for you. To make matters worse, the scrolling gets faster and faster th longer you keep going until you're pretty much just relying on luck and reflexes rather than any conscious skill.

At first I thought it was easy, and managed to rack up a whopping 100,000 points on my first go, but it then took me ages after this to replicate it. And that's the beauty of this game - you'll keep coming back time and again to try and conquer your own personal best and this becomes equally infuriating and mesmerizing.

The graphics are awful, there's no sound and nothing in the way of options, yet Drop Off will have you hooked for hours.

After installing this game, you're presented with a simple interface: a ball, falling through multiple gaps in platforms. As the ball falls there will be lines with gaps in them, move the ball left or right to fall through the gaps below the lines. It gets faster the longer you can last.

This is a very simple, very addictive classic - and playable on just about any J2ME mobile phone. Download it today!
