Drop 4 - Drop Complete

The project is currently not released.


  • Originally Plasma Pyramid was called Powboom and the dimension that the Powboomians lived in had no name. This was changed in Drop 3 however there was little evidence of it.
  • Originally in Drop 3 you were supposed to battle Cycloglob however this was dropped due to the number of bugs the battle had. And the general unfairness of it.
  • Each area in Drop 3 was supposed to have 3 levels in it each but it was taking too long so Goshi dropped it to only 1 level.
  • The platformer engine in Drop 1 and 2 was stolen from the MZX Encyclopedia. In Drop 3 though, Goshi tried to make his own but it didn't turn out well.
  • A Drop 5 was originally planned but the idea was dropped.
  • Drop 4 used to have Mega Man styled gameplay however the idea was dropped.
  • Most enemy and character ideas are based of that of the Kirby games.
  • Slimey originally came from Sparker's Insane World series but it was decided he suited to the Drop series better.
