Jump Jump Jelly Reactor
"One of a kind" and "Hidden Gem" of a game!
This M3 is like none I've ever played!! In a long list of games I'm trying, I intended to only play a few minuted to decide if it's worth buying and if I could play it. (carpel tunnel and arthritis makes some games impossible and stressful) Well the hour flew by and startled me when it was up! That is always a clear sign to buy! As the only other reviewer said.. it is indeed VERY addicting and so much fun to play!
No timers here.. really. It's very different..you play till you reach a goal as seen on the left. I haven't quite figured that out yet. But something I've never seen in a M3; as you go from one level to the next.. your matches and "Big Jellys" you worked on building up in one level, the next level they are still in the exact place! So it's like you never stopped playing! Yet another cool feature, that adds to the amazingly relaxing, fun and "Just one more level" draw this game has going for it!
But, don't let the evil enemy "The rocks" fall off the bottom. By the way, they're given some very dumb, low IQ (and hilarious!!) personalities. LOL! If they reach the bottom, then fall off in 1 more move, each one will stack to your right, and 6 I think (can't remember) block your laser and its "Game Over". Now, don't let that scare you off!! Even though I hate that in game, with this game it's different somehow. It's so relaxing, I don't mind replaying an area. It's not too easy and it isn't at all frustratingly hard either. It is the perfect level of challenge! I think I only lost the first area (I don't know how many levels it is to beat an area, I was almost past 5th of the 1st one when the trial ended) because there is a learning curve and the tutorial is kind of vague. Which is my only "Con" with this game. However... I learned easy enough how to play and beat the rocks. Which can be done by "Bonking" them on the head with a match above, or the sides with a combo. Especially helpful when they have "hats" that protect them. Which are kind of like moving (down the board) chains or ice. Depending on a fabric or metal type hat they'll need an extra bonk or two on the head before they crumble!
It's not a swap, but a drag and match or chainish type M3. Again a very unique feel to the game play too. You can match 2 or more, building bigger Jellys. Anything more than 3 wipes out the line, so there is a bit of Strategy required to rack up points. In between levels you play a bonus game, the goal here is to eliminate all or as many jellys as you can to get coins. Again play one or 2 and you'll easily figure them out. That is timed.. but you have plenty of it as they are very easy, to earn coins in it. You use the coins to buy bridges, or other improvements and new areas to play. Your first new area gives you zen mode..so it will be even more relaxing!
You can make this game as fast or as slow as you like. Earning Zen, or continuing in arcade mode as you play the first area in..though it wasn't hyper fast I would imagine it gets harder and area 1 is again, meant to be a "learning area", or you can switch to Zen if you like after the 2nd one. It seems to be quite a long game too. It's worth a Credit. PCC or if it's ever a DD snatch it up!
I highly recommend this very fun, addictive, funny game! The graphics are clear, plays like a dream and has a cute quirky side story. Why it isn't more popular I don't know?! Perhaps it was a "Soft Release"? Anyway.. whatever kind of games you like.... I think all will LOVE this one. It has a great re-playability factor and will appeal to all ages, the young or young at heart. For me, it will be a awesome game to come back to in between my HOGs, RPGs and builders. A Match 3.. made in heaven!
Just try it! I dare any Casual Gamer, any skill level or genre lover, not to love this game and be "Hooked"! ;)
