Who in their right mind doesn’t like candies? Right! Team Lava has ingeniously used this to their advantage and brought their own confectionary to the mix, teasing your sweet tooth and taking candy addiction to a whole new level!
A sugar laden world awaits you, seeking your puzzle solving skills to rid it from the evil gummy bear and his cronies. Your adventure may seem easy at first but watch it become perilous as you progress.
What sets Candy Blast Mania apart are the awesome graphics always refreshing to look at and the animations are exactly how you would want them to be! The game works flawlessly with minimal intrusions from popups that usually ruin the experience. Candy Mania follows the tried and tested method of awarding stars for each level cleared and limits play through energy power ups. Fully charged you get 5 energy points to play. If a level is successfully cleared you earn an energy point or in other words you don’t lose any but if you fail, every restart would cost you one. Unlike other puzzle games there is no need to pool stars to unlock the next one, the only requirement is to clear the last one be it one star or three. The goal is to clear the level in the allotted number of moves which fluctuate with each level and also get less forgiving as you progress.
What annoys however is the hour long wait time to gain one energy point which can be really cumbersome and hinders long plays. Obviously that is where real money comes in. If you are an impatient adventurer you can go ahead and purchase energy and other power ups such as getting more than the allowed moves per level.
Candy Mania offers a new challenge with each new level keeping players engaged and putting their problem solving skills to the test. There are all sorts of obstacles such as frozen candies (candy goop), gobblers, cannons etc. If that doesn’t slow you down, after roughly every 5 levels players find themselves face to face with the Gummy Bear King who would keep on throwing random obstacles your way and taunt them. Though they can get back by generating combos and temporarily stunning him.
I have now spent a couple of days on the game and managed to reach level 127, still a long way to go. If the developers could add cutscenes to the mix it would be awesome, creating a more story like feel. Given the amazing work they have done with the graphics I am confident they’d do a splendid job. Overall I would recommend you to give it a shot and add it to your daily gaming routine while you are waiting for energy on other games.
