Five Delicious Match Games You Should Snack On
For some match-3 games, they're sticky and sweet, loaded with candies, pastries, chocolates, and even more delicious snacks to keep your mouth watering. It all started with Candy Crush Saga, but things have only gotten sweeter from there. Anyone can create a match-3 title, but making it sweet and tasty is another challenge entirely. Here are some of the most decadent food-based matching games out there. Try to keep your cravings at bay while you go through this list!
Pastry Paradise is a quick and breezy match game with plenty of decadent treats you must match for high scores. From gingerbread cookies to cookie wafers, there's a different sort of treat for all kinds of players, which make your mouth water aside from giving you another direction entirely that you can use to match the sweets: diagonally! It's a bright and vivid puzzler that you'll definitely want to take a bite out of, especially if you've got a sweet tooth that you need to satisfy.
While Candy Crush Saga is content to place pieces of candy in front of players to tempt them with saccharine treats, Cookie Jam takes things to the next level with delicious confections that you "create" by completing puzzles. There's a veritable menagerie of French desserts you'll work to prepare, ranging from cupcakes to sugary donuts and delectable pies. Though the game is fundamentally similar to Candy Crush Saga as far as its game board and overall mechanics go, it's a much more difficult game with frustrating map shapes, seemingly unbreakable waffle cone foundations and levels that feel nigh impossible to collect all three stars in.
Candy Crush Soda Saga
Candy Crush Saga is back for more delicious candy matching goodness with the long-awaited Candy Crush Soda Saga. It's a colorful amalgam of everything you loved about the original puzzler wih a hefty helping of frustrations that'll keep you glued to the same level for hours on end. With that said, it's still exciting to get hooked on, and it's got plenty of nods toward fizzy sugary drinks and tasty treats that will no doubt attract new players, even if it is mostly the same type of game.
Halfbrick's culinary twist on the match-3: Yes Chef, is the studio's very first foray into the realm of puzzlers. CitrusJoy and Halfbrick join forces to tell the tale of young apprentice Cherry under Chef Pierre, who's teaching her all about how to be the best chef she can be. The game spans 100 levels where players create different dishes with various flavors, cakes, frozen food, and more. There's a whole host of power-ups to aid in your quest as well. It's not all about the desserts, but they're still quite fun to make here as well!
TeamLava throws its hat into the ring with a delectable mixture of colorful cupcakes, a rainbow of pastry pleasures, and more. It's a lot like the Candy Blast Mania title the developer previously put out, but this release focuses solely on cupcakes. It's a lot like the other titles on the list, but the fact that it focuses solely on cupcakes is undoubtedly what makes it so much fun!
