Match 3 games are always a combination of two skills: quick thinking and fast finger-swiping power! If you are flexible and can do both simultaneously, then you are in for a treet! Sweet candy delights await you in the universal match 3 iPhone, iPad arcade game app, Candy Booms by Eva Studio.

You'll find a variety of large colorful sweets which you must unwrap (match candies) in order to gain as many points as possible. Take a look at the features offered in Candy Booms:

- Form Special Combinations (4 or 5 in a line, T or L shaped formations) to create candy giants, and then eliminate them

- If the jelly slots are eliminated in just a few moves, you are awarded a Bonus Game with multiplier scores

- Challenge your friends on Facebook in a hot game of Candy Booms

- Clear all white cells on the board and get a free game.

Launch the beautiful interface of Candy Booms and take a look at the end of your display. Here you'll find (1) a helpful, illustrated Tutorial when you tap the "?", (2) the Wheel of Fortune button to spin for more power-ups, and (3) the Settings button.

As its name implies, the fancy Wheel of Fortune adds power-ups that will be much needed. Look out for a shovel, bomb and a cake mixer under the board grid! You will love the psychedelic swirling action of the mixer that whirls up the entire board's contents and finds you matches to boot! While the bomb provides a pretty good explosion to get the matches you need! For your convenience, the Help "?" button is available at any time you need to access the Tutorial.

Tap the Settings gear button, and here you can select to toggle on or off music and sounds. The top of your display shows the amount of Lives you have. If you find yourself becoming addicted to Candy Booms as I did, just tap the cart to make in-app purchases of an additional 5, 25 or 50 lollipops.

A quick summary of the easy rules with demo pictures in the Tutorial include: Three In A Line- Collect three or more candies of the same kind on one line. Wrapped Candy- Clear four candies in one line to get a Wrapped Candy.

How about a look at the special combo moves you can make listed under Special Candies? Throbbing Candy- Clear candies line in the shape of L or T to eliminate! Super Candy- Clear five candies in one line to get one. Finally, you get to make super deliciously unheard of Super Combinations with Special Candies! The boxes on top of the screen will always display how many moves you have made, as well as your score.

If you like this fun kind of puzzle, match 3 game, you may also want to take a look at Sweet Kingdom by Eva Studios. Here they have a somewhat similar game which places you on a fountain of chocolate with candies galore! Match 3 games are perfect for the entire family!
COOL CONCLUSION: Those with a sweet tooth who love a good match 3 puzzle will enjoy the animated fun and challenge of Candy Booms.
