Another puzzle app from Eva Studio, Candy Booms is more candy matching fun. This time there is no candy mountains to climb, just match three candies to release them from their wrapped state. Clear the board of their wrappers to win the round.
To speed up the process your best bet is to make the combos. Four in a row, T or L shapes create super candies that will bust out more lines on the board. Since you only have so many moves to complete the puzzle in, these combos can really come in handy. Here is the full description from the App Store:
Make a dash for Candy Kingdom!
Candy boom is a funny puzzle match 3 game.
Pop candies like bubbles.
Use match 3 combinations to make candy crush.
Special combinations (4 in line, 5 in line, T and L shaped combinations) create super candies.
Combine super candies to see super crashes!
If all the jelly slots are crushed in certain number of moves, you get a bonus game with multiplication of candy scores. Level up.
Hone your skills as a diamond and challenge your friends in duels.
Try your luck in slot machines. Invite your friends, spin the wheel of fortune and win prizes. Get high score and lead in different candy tops! Have fun!
The play of the game is much like the Sweet Kingdom predecessor, but it does change it up a bit with different and more colorful candy shapes and the wrapped candy aspect. One thing I really like about this version is that you can challenge your friends from Facebook in a Candy Booms duel. You are still limited on how many lives you have and of course in-app purchases will get you more. Spinning The Wheel of Fortune will also add some power-ups to your arsenal, including a mixer, bombs and a shovel. All will help you clear your board faster and keep those lives you have.
Overall I liked Candy Booms as a very familiar match three puzzle. I’ve always been a fan of Bejeweled and Candy Booms continued to feed my need to match three. Candy Booms is available for free and universal for iPhone and iPad.
