NumerDropHeaven is a new fast-action puzzle game that will challenge your quick thinking and reaction skills.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app combines a sense of “missions” with more traditional “Bejeweled-style” gameplay.


NumerDropHeaven, by the up and coming developer Takashi Mikami, challenges players to think quickly as they direct falling number-coded puzzle pieces.

Wisely directing these pieces will mean advancing within the app and completing set “missions.” Failing, however, will mean that you’ll need to retry that level.

In fact, it is these character-guided “missions” that sets NumerDropHeaven apart from other apps with similarly styled puzzle challenges.

While the idea behind this mission-style is quite solid, and it should be a fun addition to this popular gaming concept, the actual execution of it needs to be tweeked a bit.

The instructional entry video is very prolonged. While a minor issue, the English within the app is also somewhat confusing to understand.

While not a groundbreaking new type of puzzle, NumerDropHeaven is a fun new combination of games already very popular in other already-existing apps.

The graphics NumberDropHeaven, or just Number Drop as its iTunes icon states, are perfect for a game of this type.

The inclusion of cartoon-style characters gives this app an added visual element that helps to visually elevate it above other non-themed games of its type.

While the overall appearance of NumerDropHeaven is pretty typical for an app of its type, the layout of the game really is lacking.

Specifically, navigating through NumerDropHeaven was not entirely intuitive. Additionally, sometimes “back/forward” directional arrows didn’t seem to be responsive, which further added to frustration when figuring out my way through this app.


NumerDropHeaven is a free app. There are some optional in-app purchases within the game, however, and an informational screen immediately at the beginning of the app warns you of this.

These purchases really aren’t necessary for enjoying the general features offered in the app, however, making this a nice game to try.

NumerDropHeaven is definitely an app you can play for free without feeling like you’re missing out on any special features. Plus that fact that it will instantly feel familiar since at its core it’s a version of the ever-popular “match falling puzzle pieces quickly” gaming concept so you can enjoy it right away.

Overall, we found the concept of NumerDropHeaven to be intriguing in the way it combines elements form other popular games.

As stated the navigation through this app, as well as the English in it, needs some work, and we’re confident these improvements will come.

That said, we can’t wait to see where this talented developer takes this interesting concept next.
