Really fun way to pass some time!!

Alright so I’ve admittedly been waiting for this cute pixel game to drop and was super excited when it finally did!

First of all, the music is super fitting with the theme of the game. It was one of the few mobile games that I didn’t feel the need to immediately mute.

The way the pixels are done are superb. Honestly I love the outline around the ghosts and creatures that make it look sticker like, I just really enjoy that? Plus the storyline scenes remind me of old school stuff and I really enjoyed that feel of nostalgia while playing.

The controls are fairly simple, I struggled at first but only because of my own inability to comprehend, it’s pretty straight forward and easy to handle once you get the hang of it but don’t let my words deter you. The games bosses and such can be a bit challenging, leaving you to have to level up some more and keep coming back. Took me a few tries to get the first boss which is awesome that I can’t just easily grind through levels.

All in all, it’s a simple app with beautiful detail and a whole lot of charm!!! I’m glad I waited for this!! Thank you for the new time eater!!

I would give it 5 stars, but....

So this is an excellent game. The story is intriguing and the gameplay is simple, yet still challenging. The musical score is great as well. I love the throw back to old school 8-bit design. The only thing holding me back is the ads. Not even that there are ads, I am fine with a game supplementing it’s income with ads. That’s normal. What I have an issue with is that on more than one occasion an ad has locked my game down because there is no way to exit out of it. The “close” symbol is missing and nothing I click on gets me back to the game. I have to always shut down and relaunch the game, resulting in me losing my progress. I don’t know if it’s your ad program, or if it’s the specific ad I am having issues with (Happy Color, if that makes any difference.) If this specific problem were fixed, I’d easily give it a 5.

Developer Response ,

We have now fixed this issue! You can now go back to enjoying the game as intented.

I’m surprised...

I very rarely try new app games, but this one caught my attention. When I do end up downloading a new game, I usually play it for a day or two, then delete it, since they can’t seem to keep me glued to it. This game, Candies n’ Curses is one of the few games that has kept me playing for more than a week in a very long time. This game was so good, I decided to do an in-app purchase, which is the very first time I have ever did an in-app purchase for a phone game, but I felt this game deserved it. I hope to see more great things from this, like seasonal events or even new characters to play as. (At the very least make Molli customizable with different clothes and hair styles)
