Featured Android Game Review: Catch The Candy [Casual]

The folks at HeroCraft are at it again. We have already reviewed a few games from them and their newest creation, Catch The Candy, just hit the Google Play Store. This one involves an unnamed cute little creature that is trying to reach the candy. It’s kind of like cut the rope in that regard, but in that game you figure out how to get the candy to the main character. In this game you need to figure out how to get the little guy to the candy.

It’s actually based on the hit Flash game so you might already be familiar with it. The main creature has an extendable sticky tail that you will use to move him in a pendulum like way or to push and pull obstacles. It’s quite simple to play. Just tap where you want the sticky tail to go with the hope of maneuvering your little guy to the candy with the fewest moves. You might have to balance on unsteady logs or grip flag poles, and obstacles are plentiful. It’s up to you to figure out what the right path is. It appears easy at first, but it gets hard in a hurry.  

Just like most games such as these, you’re graded with the star system. Grab at least one star to unlock the next level, but you only truly master the level when you achieve three stars. There are 58 levels, so there’s enough to keep you going for a while. Right now HeroCraft is running a launch sale, so you can grab it for only 99-cents. That’s 1/5 of the price of a Starbucks drink. If you’re looking for a new puzzle type game, then give Catch The Candy a shot. Check out my hands on video below and hit one of the download links to get started. Let me know what you think.

Game features:

  • 58 Levels set across a variety of different worlds
  • Unique physics-based gameplay
  • Colourful cartoon graphics
  • Hidden ‘Easter Eggs’ to uncover
  • Based on the hit Flash game
