This is a placeholder page for the downloadable game Droplitz on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, developed by Blitz Games and published by Atlus U.S.A. in 2009.
The gameplay in Droplitz is fairly straightforward. Droppers from the top deposit the titular Droplitz into the playing field, which then proceed to fall through the dials until they hit a dead end or the collectors on the bottom. Should they hit a dead end, the Droplitz counts as lost, which leads you closer to a game over. Should they end at a collector, they will be recounted towards your Droplitz total. If the Droplitz hits either a X or a Y-shaped dial, it will split into two different sections, which then can add extra to your Droplitz total if they are both received at the end, keeping you playing the game a little while longer.
Upon having a Droplitz reach a collector, the area that it was traveling on turns a different color and the dials within are unable to be rotated. This is called forming a path, and after a path is created, it stays on the playing field for a short while before the dials within are erased and replaced with other dials. It is possible to add additional paths to the first created path during this time in order to lengthen the time on the field and add bonus points.
There are numerous types of dials to change in order to allow the Droplitz to move towards the receivers on the bottom, and they are:
-Straight Dial: These dials only offer a straight line for the Droplitz to travel through, making them one of the hardest dials to manipulate. It is possible for straight dials to take up every space on the very ends, making them useless and narrowing your playing field and changing how you play.
-Angle Dial: These slightly "L" shaped dials curve the direction that the Droplitz travels while going through it. These dials work well both by the droppers and collectors, but can sometimes be bothersome while in the middle of the playing field.
-Y Dial: The "Y" shaped dials allow the Droplitz to split upon entering them, which allows for a greater amount to be received by the collectors. They work well directly below the droppers, as it allows you to both split the Droplitz and have more connected dials to work with.
-X Dial: The "X" shaped dials allow the Droplitz to split upon entering them, which allows for a greater amount to be received by the collectors. These dials are arguably the best in the game in terms of pure manipulation and work well in pretty much any situation. The only thing to remember is that they are at a slight angle, which may change your path slightly in some cases.
-Helper Dial: This dial acts as both a dropper and a collector depending on how it is situated on the board. If it is connected to a path with a dropper it will act as a collector, and act as a dropper if connected to a collector. These dials can also form a direct path between each other as well in order to form a separate path from the rest of the board.
From July 1st, 2009 through July 31, 2009 Atlus U.S.A. sponsored a contest on the Xbox Live version of the game in order to win Microsoft Points. In ordered to be entered in the contest, the player needed to post a score on the stage "Small Wonder" in the classic gameplay type. Those in the top 6 won 1600 Microsoft Points ($20 value) with the exception of the number 1 player, which received 4000 Microsoft Points ($50 value).
