With a formula well adopted and refined throughout the genre your core experience in Cookie Jam revolves around the matching of colourful and delicious tiles in blocks of 3 or more. Focusing on objectives that tie the creation of delicious dessert recipes to gameplay Cookie Jam levels focus on being able to collect the correct type and amount of particular ingredients in order to pass the level.

Amongst a backdrop of several candy themed islands such Cotton Cakelandia and Swiss Chocolate Alps you’ll fly within a floating house from level to level as you discover and create real world inspired recipes from the gameboard tiles filled with flavour. Throughout this candy puzzle experience Cookie Jam offers impressive visual presentation, fantastic UI and responsive controls that will keep you matching although does tend to bombard players with pop-ups and colourful level completing flashes between levels that slows down your progression and can feel excessive.

The difficultly level of Cookie Jam may also slow some players down as Cookie Jam requires a little more forward planning to be successful rather than randomly matching the most obvious tiles which provides room for the smart player to rise the ranks against their friends.

This is also due in part to specific level objectives where sheer matches for points or obstacle clearing is not going to be a successful long term strategy as Cookie Jam continually evolves itself by changing up the board, introducing extra obstacles and colours you’ll always be on your toes.

Satisfy your sweet tooth for an exciting new match three puzzle game in Cookie Jam and you won’t’ be disappointed.

  1. This is a good game. However, the cost for boosters or extra lives is really high compared to other games in this genre.

  3. I have the same problem. Timer runs out and always have 10 lives left, although I could have finished with a couple of moves. If that isn’t changed, I’ll stop playing
