Wooga’s Jelly Splash has already lived up to its name, as the casual game developer’s latest mobile title has made a splash on iOS, breaking company records for its best launch yet.
The level-based puzzle game asks players to tap and drag on jellies of the same color, creating long lines horizontally, vertically and diagonally to clear them from the screen. The longer the line, the more points the move is worth, and the closer players get to each level’s coveted three-star rating.
Levels may be limited to a certain number of moves, or have other obstacles in the way of connecting specific jellies, so Jelly Splash comes with challenge and strategy just as it does luck. Lives are lost as players fail to reach a level’s required tasks, which expand from just earning a certain number of points to clearing dark squares from the board, rescuing jellies from slime and so on.
Jelly Splash has already been downloaded more than 1 million times in the six days since the game launched on iPhone and iPad, reaching as high as No. 2 on the iTunes free apps charts. While the game is free to play, it is supported via microtransactions allowing for the purchase of additional lives, moves in move-limited levels, and so on.
