My kids are always stealing my tablet to download apps and play games. Yesterday, Mind Candy, the leading family entertainment company behind the renowned Moshi Monsters franchise has made its popular Match-3 game Moshling Rescue available on Android. After a successful launch on Facebook and iOS last month, Moshling Rescue has been featured in over 36 countries as one of Apple's ‘Best New Games’ and has consistently been rated 5 stars in the App Store.
After I downloaded the app, Abigail was the first to try it out. She is a big fan of Match-3 games, especially Candy Crush. After playing Moshling Rescue for a little while, she said it had the fun of Candy Crush mixed with the cute Moshi Monster characters. As the tablet was passed around the living room, everyone, young and old, agreed. This morning, Josie excitedly grabbd the tablet which was charging overnight. She asked, "Can I play the new interesting gam on your tablet?" With a little help from Abigail she was on her way. This game is a big hit at our place. I hope I can get my hands on my tablet so I can play too!
As the first Mind Candy game targeted to the moms and dads of the company’s millions of young fans, Moshling Rescue combines a variety of unique gameplay modes, providing hours of enjoyment for an older audience. With over 1 million players around the world, the game features fun yetchallenging gameplay, as players must match the gummies to rescue the Moshlings and explore hundreds of adventure-packed levels. When the going gets tough, players can purchase boosts and extra lives to enhance their entertainment.
• Home mode – For the first time in a game of this genre, players must collect specific gummies to move the Moshling across a game-style track to reach home.
• Boss mode – Big Bad Bill tries his best to prevent players from reaching their goal.
• Dig mode – Explode and select gummies to dig further down the screen to complete the level.
• Drop mode – Rescue the Moshlings by dropping them down through a big stack of gummies.
• Clear mode – Everything is covered in gloop! Match over it to clean it all away.
• Treasure mode – Unlock treasure and win jellybeans by merging sacks, crates & chests together.
Android users can now also connect their mobile or tablet editions of Moshling Rescue with their Facebook accounts to pick up and play where they left off for even more fun. Players will also receive an extra life across both platforms by connecting to their Facebook accounts.Commenting on the Android launch, President of Mind Candy Divinia Knowles said, “We’re very excited that Android users will now be able to enjoy this next generation of Match-3 gaming alongside iOS and Facebook users. We are continuing to expand the Mind Candy portfolio from kids’entertainment to a broader family entertainment company and have a number of exciting new projects in the pipeline that we can’t wait to share with audiences of all ages.” What sets Moshling Rescue apart from other games of this genre is the deep character drivennarrative, which is synonymous with all Mind Candy games. There is a unique collection mechanic where players earn a Moshling after completing certain levels, with rewards earned for completing a full set of characters that can then be viewed at any time in The Tree House. Moshling Rescue was developed in house by Mind Candy and can be downloaded for free on the Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. In the coming monts, Mind Candy will offer content updates and enhancements to the already fature-rich game.
