It's nice but in 2018 the world doesn't really needs another Candy themed match 3 game.

INTRODUCTION

-------

Candy Monster is a simple game where you slide pieces of food to make lines and feed it to a monster.

Scripting

I would expect to see mistakes in any Newgrounds game, if ir was a crash, a way to chanhe the value of a certain counter, or anything upon the lines of that.

I was pleased to see that there was only a single bug here, which is how 2 pieces of candy can intersect and become siamese twins, somehow.

The link is https://postimg.org/image/ty8vr03sb/ if you want to get a picutre of what's happening for yourself.

Overall, I'll rate the scripting at a 6/10. It wasn't that shocking to what it could do, but it could surely do it fairly well.

Gameplay

The gameplay is really simple in my eyes, as I've seen a gaming company called King milk the f*** out of this one type of game. The main one being Candy Crush, a smash hit in the App Store.

As I've seen apps like this take over the gaming market every single day, It's really dried out. And I mean by a LOT.

You could even include power ups, if you like, or maybe put a twist on it where if you have enough of a certain food, you can temporarily get a sweet tooth and gain a higher score from eating.

What's even worse is that I didn't even have to swipe any food on Level 2 for some reason.

Gameplay gets a 3/10.

Graphic Design

I've been saving the juiciest topic of this game for the last, as it was really interesting.

Anyways, let's cut to the chase.

As you can see, the graphical art may look really appealing at first, but it's stolen.

I personally think the candy and whatnot is clip art, so I'll let that slide.

But the monsters are plagiarized from another Flash game I've played before called Feed Me More

If you need a reference search it up on Kizi or click the link next to this sentence. http://kizi.com/games/feed-me-more

ORRRR someone SOLD the monster clip art as theirs, and the developer didn't know about that other game.

ORRRR both games got the same clip art that wasn't actually made by the 2 developers (although this is highly unlikely because of how the clip art on feed me more usually matches really well).

I'll be letting the developer off the hook and this aspect of the game as neutral for now because he obviously can't respond while I'm typing this.

And because I said it should be neutral, 5/10 on graphical art for

After adding up the ratings for the categories, I eventually got the number 4/10, which is the same as 2/5, so I'll leage my rating here.

2 stars.

An un-original game that does everything right is a three star minimum game. Some people on this site need to stop expecting too much for free.

It's a good time passer. Nothing incredible about it though. graphics are good, animation is good. only negative I can say is the lack of power-ups. I was expecting something for matches of 4 or 5, but there was nothing rewarding. Even the minor addition of multiple match point multiplier would be good. the game does have the possibility for these few additions to be made at a later update.

Overall, good start but it needs more to maintain playability.

Nice game, nice gfx, just not particularly original unfortunately.
