Catch the Candy
The iPhone/iPod Touch platform has been
sporting some of the most interesting, intriguing, and fascinating
games. I am constantly in shock and awe at some of the ideas that are
coming out. Catch the Candy is one of those games. Your character is a
dustball or furrball or you know what? I don't know what it is. He or
she has a sticky appendage that can grab on to certain surfaces. This is
how you move it around. Technically it is his tongue, which is just
The graphics range in Catch the Candy. The little critter is cute looking, and animates nicely. Some of the levels have some neat hand drawn artwork and others well they did not look as good to me. There are fifty-three levels so expect to see a lot of different things. The game lets you try as many times as you want to solve a level. It grades you on how many times you sent the tongue out. Going crazy with it brings really high numbers.
The music in Catch the Candy is cheerful, fun, and fresh. I like the special effect sound when my critter connected with the candy. It is a unique sound that has to be heard to be believed. The musical department knows what they are doing for this delightful little game. I did not find any offensive words while I was playing Catch the Candy on the iPhone/iPod Touch.
I am writing this review before Catch the Candy actually hits the streets. That means I do not know for sure the exact price of this app. I am guessing it will sell for ninety-nine cents. There is OpenFeint on Catch the Candy. So if you like to share scores, leaderboards and stuff like that you can. We absolutely hate those kinds of things but we know many of our readers enjoy it.
The game play in Catch the Candy is very interesting and innovative. I enjoyed moving my character around, and learning the physics. There is one minor issue with Catch the Candy though. I had a horrible time seeing where I was going. See you touch where you want his tongue to go. He latches on and pulls himself there as long as you hold your finger there. If you are not on a flat spot it can be difficult to see where to touch next. I fell from higher spots because of this problem numerous times. Since I could still beat the levels it is a minor issue.
Catch the Candy teaches basic physics and how things work. I enjoyed my time with this iPhone/iPod Touch game, and hope there will be sequels in the near future. It was a pleasure to be able to play and review Catch the Candy. My one suggestion is having an easier way to get from the top edge of a wall to level top part of the wall. Catch the Candy will give you a different kind of game play experience.
