What’s It About?
As a match-3 puzzle game, COOKIE JAM BLAST doesn't have a story. Instead, you have to match three of the same kinds of candy in a row so you can break the waffle pieces they're sitting on. Which may sound like a nefarious attempt on your dentist's part to drive up business, or a bit of sly marketing from Big Candy, but it's not. Or is it...?
Is It Any Good?
While it doesn't deviate the formula much, this match-3 puzzle game is still clever enough to keep fans of the genre coming back. In Cookie Jam Blast, you have to move pieces of candy so that there's three or more of the same kind in a row. Doing so removes them from the board, and drops down whatever pieces are above. But while this has the same basic mechanics as other match-3 puzzle games, it's what you do with those gameplay elements that makes this a little different. Initially, your objective is not to just gather candy of a certain type, but to break the waffle pieces the candy is sitting on. Later, you have to match electric pieces to make a sentient sundae move towards an ice cream truck, while further levels have you trying to free a scoop of ice cream with hot fudge hair. So while this may be fairly typical for the genre, it still gets rather clever and intricate as you get deep into it. Though, on the flipside, if you play a lot of match-3 puzzle games, this may not keep your attention as much as some other have. Also, it's super cute, so anyone that takes things too seriously will hate it. Still, if you like match-3 puzzle games that are cute, and you're not on a low sugar diet, Cookie Jam Blast will keep you engaged while you're at the coffee shop, waiting for your Mocha-Choco Blastarino.
