      Really this is quite a poor game, only 1 game mode make its replay value extremely low.

      Hard to write a long review on a game with such a lack of content.

      Basically the game is 1-4 players, with AI filling in any slots that aren't taken up by humans.

      The aim of the game is too fall through rings which are positioned randomly on the playing field. All players will start level at the top, then drop down for about a minute or so until you reach the bottom. Different size rings will award different amounts of points, with a bonus for hitting the ring first. A large ring placed at the bottom with give a large bonus for the person who hits it first. So not only is this game about accuracy in fitting through the rings, its also a racing game. Obstacles in the form of floating balloons are placed on the field, to force players to weave in and out hitting as many rings as possible.

      The AI has moderate intelligence, they're able to put up a challenge the first couple of times that you play, but after that you should be able to beat them consistently without too much trouble.

      Really this game has an incredible lack of replayability, you'll be bored after the first 2 drops. Worthless in singleplayer, and not worth much more for the multiplayer either. I wouldn't recommend buying this game. The only thing i liked about it were the neat ragdoll physics on the avatars.

      Will keep you entertained for a few minuites. There are better 80 points games out there.

      Avatar drop is a cheap indie game for the xbox 360 which is downloaded for the small price of 80 points which is converted to 68p. The game plays pretty much the same over and over again.

      Avatar drop is 4 player and also allows computer players. At the start of the game you drop your avatar and then you use the analog stick to move your falling avatar and the X button to spin him around. The goal is to go through the most ring and be the first to cross the last ring. There are 3 types of rings. Bronze rings which are large. Silver rings which are medium sized and gold rings which are small in size. The smaller the ring the more points you aquire by going through it.

      The graphics are quite simple and the levels are randomly generated though you will probably not notice the difference as it is very repetitive. There is only one game mode and this will keep you entertained for only a few minuites.

      Avatar Drop is an Xbox Live Indie Game. An Indie Game is made by small developers and are like short, cheap and basic games. This game only costs 80 Microsoft Points which is very cheap and probably like 60p to buy! It is a fun game where you control your Avatar and you have to try and get the most points. You get points by going through rings. Gold rings give you the most points but are smallest, silver are medium and bronze are biggest but give you the least points. Your Avatar is sort of a ragdoll which is quite funny!

      I also like the use of the Avatars and it is funny seeing them hit sort of balloon objects and going through rings! The balloon objects basically make it more interesting and harder as you have to wait for them to get smaller before being able to go through some rings. You can control your Avatar by spinning and moving them and it works quite well!

      You can also play multiplayer with other people on the same console or with computer controlled players which makes it more interesting!

      The graphics are quite good and the same goes for the sound.

      Overall if you have some spare microsoft points you could do much worse than buy this game instead of wasting it on a theme or avatar clothing! This game is nothing major but if you have a spare few minutes and can`t be bothered to change the game this is really good!
