I have never played Candy Crush. I don’t even have the app on my phone. Before smart phones, I was addicted to Sudoku puzzles and had a little book with a pencil stuck in it that I would work in every night after Brooks was in bed and everything was prepped for the next day. But now at night during that time, I typically work on my laptop, so perhaps subconsciously, I’ve never dabbled in Candy Crush because I knew it would lure my attention away from work assignments.
Recently, I was asked to review a relatively new app called Best Fiends. I really had to think about this because for so long, I was anti-Candy Crush or anything like Candy Crush. When I investigated the Best Fiends game, however, I was intrigued. I agreed to review the app on my blog and since then, both my husband and I have admittedly taken quite a liking to the game.
The website describes the app like this, “Discover the world of Minutia and its cute, courageous inhabitants in this fiendishly fun, FREE puzzle adventure! Collect all Best Fiends, level them up, discover their special powers and battle the Slugs of Mount Boom.”
There are a number of reasons I like Best Fiends. Here are my top 5.
1. This game was created by designers. With enchanting and detailed graphics, it feels creative.
2. The music is outstanding. It was composed and played by an orchestra. Check out this quick video that shows how they created the music. Amazing.
3. You can win in circles, diagonally, etc. You don’t just have to get three or more in a straight row.
4. It’s a story with good and evil and adorable characters to boot. You feel like there’s a purpose and plot to the game, which for me, means a lot.
5. Its free (App Store, Google Play and Amazon)!
Over the past couple of weeks since downloading the game, I’ve caught myself playing while waiting in line at the store or in a waiting room. I’m not very patient when it comes to waiting, so playing Best Fiends has been very helpful in that regard. I have to say that while it’s easy to play, it’s not so easy to utilize all of the intricate characters and powers. The games is advertised to players of all ages, but you would have to have some analytical skills to master the levels. My husband and I had to play the game for a while and discuss before we really understand the different levels, fiends and obstacles.
I am not going to pretend like I’m a master at playing the game and as with a lot of app games, you can purchase more levels, but you don’t have to. Best Fiends also offers in-app donations to help ‘Malaria No More!’ which I think is super cool.
For those of you that are well-versed with these types of games, I would love to hear your thoughts once you try it out. It’s free, so why not give it a whirl? Have fun meeting all of the best fiends!
