The creators of Cookie Jam have turned away from the sugary snacks and created a fresh match three puzzle adventure centred around fruit instead. Using similar fundamentals to their other games you’ll find refined mechanics, brighter colours and hundreds of new levels in SGN’s next mobile creation.
With the hundreds of games in this genre flooding the app store on a regular basis it is hard to stand out but Juice Jam does a fairly good job thanks to high production values and a nice mixture of combinations.
As a match three game the core mechanic is of course creating matches of the various fruits on the game board by creating horizontal and vertical lines of three or more fruits. These fruits will then be used for tasty smoothies to fill the customers orders which you will see at the top of the screen. While only 3 will be active at any time players will often have to fill dozens of order with your limited number of moves.
While this fruit smoothie type of level is definitely the main one you’ll encounter in the hundreds of Juice Jam levels there are a few other types of levels to keep the game from getting stale. These include creating popsicles for penguins and feeding a giant cat with his favourite fruits.
The unique ideas don’t even stop there though with a unique honey mechanic that appears several times through the Juice Jam levels in different forms. This mechanic basically involves combining two matches by first having too much bees to create honey cubes and then make a second match on top of that to create honey which some of your guests will want in their smoothies.
Juice Jam has everything that match three genre is known for and does it all with the highest quality making it well worth the space on your device.
