Puzzle games are my personal favorite. I have quite a few of them installed on my PC as well as my smartphone. Earlier today, I stumbled across another addictive yet challenging game for Windows 8.1 dubbed as Sweets Mania Space Quest. The game comes with an intuitive gameplay and user interface, and has 180 challenging levels to test your skills.
"A new tasty treat for all those people with a sweet tooth and those prone to game addiction! This sugary game is as addictive as it can get! You'll surely enjoy for hours matching sweets, breaking your way through levels and levels of sweet madness! If you recognize yourself in these words, then Sweets Mania Space Quest is the ideal game for you! Unlike classic matching games with sweets, this match 3 game has alien characters and cool space setting. Plus to make it more challenging and interesting there are Monsters that eat your sweets and Ground obstacles that impede your progress," the app description reads.
The gameplay is pretty straightforward: all you have to do is match the same colored candies of 3 or more to remove them and get points. Getting a combination of 4 or more will get you powerful elements such as strips and a chocolate candy which can eliminate more candies from the level.
It's not as simple as it sounds, there are obstacles and monsters in the game as well. Monster eats up a random element in each turn, thus giving birth to another one. To get rid of them, you need to match three candies or more next to the monster. The obstacles include solid rocks, rocks, gravel and soil that can create problems and hinder your progress. The game also comes with various difficulty levels to test your skills.
At first sight, the game reminded me of Candy Crush Saga, yes, the same game that has received it's fair share of success on iOS and Android, as well as on Facebook.
Here's a list of all the challenging features the game comes along with:
- Match 3 elements in a row and eliminate them, match 4 and get a striped candy of the same color
- Match 5 elements in a T or L shape and get a wrapped candy, match them in a row and get a chocolate candy
- Combine 3 or more elements to kill Monsters, unlock elements and remove Grounds
- Outstanding visual elements featuring space setting and alien characters
- Easy-to-play interface, fast gameplay mechanics and various difficulty levels
Head over to the Windows Store and download the app - It's free!
