Candy Boy is what would happen if Dr. Mario had been a platformer instead of a puzzle game. Casper finds that his beloved Candy Land has been infested by horrific candy hungry worms. It's now up to him to use the power of sugary treats to send these parasites to oblivion.
Each level consists of worms of different colors nestled amongst candy of different colors. Armed with a small supply of candy himself, Casper needs to place the blocks so that three or more of the same color matches up, destroying the candy, and the worms along with it. Each level also contains three coins to collect; a certain number of which are needed to unlock the other worlds.
The levels themselves are vibrant with a nice amount of detail, especially in the backgrounds detailing a fun and colorful world. The soundtrack is also jaunty but the music loops are way too short and you'll probably find yourself turning them off after a couple minutes. The game contains over a hundred levels amongst its four worlds so there's plenty of content to keep you playing.
The only real downside to the game is in the controls. The buttons work as well as you can expect virtual buttons for moving and jumping to work, but the jumping itself feels very restrictive, as if the character is on a very short leash, and it makes the levels with required jumping more frustrating than they should be. Regardless though, Candy Boy is a fun little puzzle platformer that might be worth a look.
