What's it about?
As with every Sailor Moon adventure, SAILOR MOON DROPS has our hero and her talking cat Luna trying to save the solar system. But in this game, they do it by sliding gems around a board to get three or more of them in a row, which causes them to disappear, thus changing the board. The overall hope of each stage is that she will earn enough points before she runs out of moves so she can go to the next stage.
Is it any good?
Though this simple match-3 game will be too simple for some and way too cutesy for others, fans of puzzles and cutesy Japanese characters will enjoy it. In Sailor Moon Drops, the titular hero of comics and cartoons has to once again save the solar system, which she does by sliding gems around a board so there are three or more in a row. This causes them to pop, gives her some much-needed points, and drops new gems in their place, thus changing the board's layout. The end game is that Sailor Moon must earn enough points before she runs out of moves so she can move on to the next stage. But while people who are fans of both Sailor Moon and match-3 puzzle games will enjoy this game, not everyone will -- especially if they're not into things that are super cute. Still others may find that the puzzles aren't very, well, puzzling, even though they do get more clever the further you progress. But then, the game isn't really made for hard-core puzzle heads who hate cartoon girls with big eyes and bigger hearts. Which is why if you're down for the cuteness and are looking for something more fun than challenging, Sailor Moon Drops will match your mood.

Families can talk about budgeting their money. Do you really need to spend money on this game, or can you just earn those upgrades and boosts by playing?
Talk about pattern recognition. What does this game teach you about matching gems that have the same color and shape? How can you apply this to your schoolwork?
Discuss strong female heroes. Sailor Moon protects the solar system, but can you name other strong women who do good? What about Wonder Woman? Princess Leia?
