Juice Cubes - Another Addiction Similar to Candy Crush!

Sorry for the lack of updates! I have been pretty occupied with quite a number of things in the past few days and this has significantly worsened the backlog! :(

One of the items that i have been busy with was this candy crush lookalike game known as Juice Cubes! Coincidentally, this also happened to be developed by Rovio; the very same company that gave us Angry Birds, which i highly suspected to be the 'main culprit' for my De Quervain's Tendinitis

As i mentioned above, the gameplay was suspiciously similar to Candy Crush; there are maps for you to advance, you have hearts for which you can use to play each level and there are functions to request for pieces of map or additional hearts from friends.

Objective must be completed before you can win the level. It takes a two-prong approach; one of which is the minimal score of one star (this is tied to score) and the other can be in ways like collecting a certain number of juice cubes etc within a maximum allowable moves. Once again, just like Candy Crush! 

It takes luck, one of my ex AIC colleagues used to say about Candy Crush! In the case of Juice Cubes, i believe strategy works although i especially hate the sand castles that were built to take over the cubes quickly as you deliberate on your next move!

At the moment, it doesn't take me long to clear each level and although i played it during my commute to and from work, i didn't face that competitive obsession i had with Angry Birds! At least i didn't attempt to achieve three stars for all the levels! 

There were times i almost wanted to click on the button to get a few gold bars to clear the occasional extremely difficult levels but think about it, 15 gold bars cost S$2.58, which doesn't give you much competitive edge beyond one level and would be better spent in purchasing quite a decent game via App Store. 

Strategy, as i said, works better. 

Just remember the above four ways you can clear the juice cubes, as it could result in very different results when you combine two specials together (applicable when you cut at least four of the same juice cubes in one go).


So what are you waiting for? Go and download so you can send me the hearts and pieces of maps!
