After I quit playing Candy Crush Saga I’ve been looking for some alternatives which are as fun as Candy Crush Saga or even more exciting adn addicting. So I’ve tried similar matching games like Jewel Mania but what attracted me the most was a recent game called Candy Blast Mania. As this game is popular with both children and adults, it is worthwhile to review it due to its popularity and it is only a matter of time before it becomes the next big hit among gamers.
So, what do I like about this game and is it worth the download?
First, it is way easier to level up than Candy Crush Saga. They have kind of user-friendly tutorials for the first few rounds for you to clearly understand their rules. Still it could be challenging as you need to meet some specific goal within a limited number of moves. For children, this is likely to keep them challenged and entertained enough to continually play the game. For parents, the game is addictive enough that you will likely sneak a chance to play it at work!
Second, there is no need to connect to Facebook. So you won’t get any annoying “Send me lives” requests. Of course you still need to wait for your life to be replenished once you run out. But you don’t really need any help from your friends (and you won’t get any help from them neither) or you don’t even need to pay for it, which is a big plus for this app. Microtransactions are therefore not a critical part of the game and it can be enjoyed largely without them,
There are not so many drawbacks about the game itself. The colors are bright and attractive and the sound effects add an extra dimension to the game. In total, there is not much to detract from the nature of the game itself.
If your kid loves puzzle games, this in-app purchase free game could probably be a safer choice for your kid. The side bonues is that you will also enjoy playing the game as much as them! You can take a look at the game HERE.
