In this cute game, you're in control of a little purple creature who really likes candy. A lot. But the poor guy doesn't have any arms or legs -– only a tongue he can flick out, like a frog, to help him move around the level. It's your job to move him toward the piece of candy in as few moves as possible. This includes swimming underneath sunken ships, climbing up Rapunzel's hair, body surfing in mosh pits at rock concerts, or surviving a beachside warzone a la Normandy. The game houses more than 50 colorful and increasingly challenging levels. Using physics, you'll latch onto an object and swing, climb, or rappel toward the candy. While it's a single-player game, you can show off your skills to friends on Game Center. While the game is hard to put down, it doesn't have the replayability of other physics puzzlers like Angry Birds but free new levels are expected on an ongoing basis. CATCH THE CANDY is a charmingly sweet game for kids and kids at heart.
