Gummy Yummy Bears is a simple, match-three style game type that you may feel familiar with.
Developer: Hanny Boni
Price: Free (advertisements and in-app purchases)
- No Google Play Games support
- Gameplay is identical to the Candy Crush series
The setup is straightforward and simple, download from the Google Play and launch. Unfortunately, there is no support for Google Play games.
To many puzzle players, Gummy Yummy Bears may seem very familiar, and for good reason. Match-three puzzle games are very challenging yet rewarding play types that can keep the user interested for an extended period of time; often times interested enough to get some people to spend a little hard-earned cash on a game that they downloaded for free. That being said, I believe that Gummy Yummy Bears may have borrowed a little too much from its predecessors.
The object of the game is to complete a series of missions by matching three or more gummy bears of a like color. If you cannot find a combination the game will suggest potential matches for you by pulsing some of the bears. The missions vary as to what the goal is but the constant is that you have a certain number of moves in which you must complete the objective.
If you are unable to complete the task in the given number of moves then you will lose a life. Lose all five lives and you won’t be able to continue. Lives can only be regained by waiting for the timer to count down or trading 12 gems for one life. Gems constitute the entirety of the in-app purchases and can be purchased at a few different rates ranging from 10 for $0.99 up to 150 for $14.99 (this one also removes adds). Gems can also be used to purchase power-ups at the beginning of levels, if you feel that you need them to win.
The graphics are what puts this game a notch below its competitors. The bar for graphics is set so high, especially by titles like Candy Crush Jelly Saga, that the graphics we see here just don’t cut it.They could have done more to freshen up the colors and make things a little more vibrant.
What I like:
- Gameplay is smooth
What I don’t:
- Lack of originality
- Graphics not up to genre standard
All negatives aside, the gameplay here is good. If all you want is another match-3 game to add to your rotation this game will suffice, but if you are looking for a similar experience to some of the heavy hitters in this genre then you may want to keep looking.
