Evil looking toys are evil in THQ’s DS puzzler Dropcast

I hadn’t heard of THQ’s upcoming Nintendo DS battle/puzzler Dropcast until the screens and fact sheet just landed in our mail box, but I’m definitely intrigued. The game features a maladjusted little girl who brings her imaginary stuff animal friends to life, teaching them devastating magic spells. 

OK, so this closely mirrors my childhood, which would explain my interest. But I’m also all about the games that — like Infinite Interactive’s Puzzle Quest — merge puzzle gameplay with role-playing attack elements. I’m easy to please — put me in front of some colors to match and I’m golden. 

Dropcast features a number of different game modes, including single-cart sharing for up to four players. For sure, I’m keeping my eye on Dropcast as it nears its September release.
