Along with the novel music creation, different game modes introduce collaborative and competitive action. You connect the DropMix peripheral to your iPhone, iPad or Android device running the related DropMix app. This lets you pick your modes and guides you through each game:
- Freestyle: No rules. Just create sweet mixes!
- Clash: Face off 1-on-1 or 2-on-2. Compete to control the mix!
- Party: Like the classic Go Fish card game, but played with music requests in a team trying to rack up points and beat the high score.
Whether playing on your own or with others, the aim is to quickly match the required type of card in the correct location of the DropMix deck. The DropMix Music Gaming System starter pack comes with the deck peripheral and a set of cards. You can expand the loops, riffs, breakbeats and vocals by purchasing additional cards in themed packs.
It's a really enjoyable digital board game. But what's really exciting is the way your card selections are matched for rhythm, tempo and pitch.

Additional in-game purchases are offered for items that enhance the experience. Some of these purchases (known as 'loot boxes') are for a chance of getting rare/higher-value items although common/lower-value items are more frequent. You purchase packs of cards for the game that provide a random selection of music. This loot box style means you may end up with doubles. There are 440 cards in total, grouped into Electronic, Hip Hop, Pop and Rock genres.
The following in-game purchases are available:
DropMix Discover Pack Series 1
DropMix Discover Pack Series 2
Although the app is rated PEGI 3 and ESRB EVERYONE, it should be noted that the game content is rated 16+ by the creators and rated 17+ on the App Store for Infrequent/Mild Alcohol, Tobacco, or Drug Use or References.
Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 8-14 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. Although there is some complexity to the combination of cards to score points, younger children will enjoy creating music by placing cards. For the very young, you may want to listen to the music on each card and remove specific cards that reference tobacco and alcohol.
