Match-3 puzzlers don’t come much more colourful or cute than the delightful Candy Friends, now available for iOS and Android. The game, from publisher SuperBox, refines the core match-3 gameplay that we all know so well while bringing its own fresh ideas and mechanical variations to the table.
Candy Friends tasks you with matching 3 or more of the same coloured sweets. When you do manage to match 3, you’ll be rewarded with an explosive, point-boosting combo. Every puzzle has its own unique challenges, and there are multiple gameplay variations and styles that will require you to make expert use of your skills.
Beating levels will earn you stars that can then be used to get treasures and obstacle-blasting boosters. There are already hundreds of puzzles to take on, though SuperBox also plans to regularly update the game with new content.
Logging in every day will net you some great rewards, and it can all be played entirely offline – no Wi-Fi or data required. Candy Friends is also accessible to just about everyone, with support for 16 different languages at launch.
