Moving on to fun and games since relaxation is an island thing, have you yet tried out Candy Rasta? Check out the features of this Jamaican rasta, arcade iPhone, iPad game:
- Candies fall from the sky and your mission is to swipe the sweets before the Candy Rasta gets a taste of the mouth-watering treats.
- From time to time, Jamaican Fruits and Veggies will whiz across the screen. Earn extra points if you connect with the fruits/veggies.
- Players will be chided by the Candy Rasta with popular Jamaican sayings and each level features upbeat Jamaican melodies.
- This game has 9 levels based on treasured Jamaican hot spots (Dunn's River Falls, Rick's Cafe, Dolphin's Cove, Bob Marley Museum etc).
- Players must swipe a targeted number of candies within a specified time to move through the levels and win virtual prizes (phone card, smartphone, tablet, sports car, travel visa, house on hilltop).
- The one thing Jamaican's fear the most are ghosts (Duppy's). A Duppy will float across the screen periodically and if you bump into the Duppy or he gets you... Game Done!
Open the app to a fine reggae music track and enjoy traditional island colors of green, yellow and black. You can tap Play, How to Play or see High Score on this home screen. The instructions explain that "Candy Rasta is a friendly guy that promotes peace, freedom and happiness for all...but has a weakness for sweet and tasty treats!"
Here's where you come in! Swipe the falling sweets so that Candy Rasta doesn't end up with cavities or sugar problems! Now in life there are the good foods and the bad foods. Candy Rasta can also have a choice of healthy native foods like ackee, mango, callaloo, yam, breadfruit and more when Jah provides these yummy fruits and veggies. But they are flashing by so quickly, you've got to grab them and earn extra points while doing so. One last solid piece of advice - the duppy (ghost) does exist! So watch out that he doesn't get you, or you are gone mon!
Now Select your avatar. Will you be Glenroy, Everton, Cappy, Carlington, Johnny, Tasha, Fluffy, Portia (actually this is also the proud name of the current prime minister), Lanisha or Winnie. Press Start and you are off on your island adventure. The action starts on the beach with the treats falling pretty quickly and the Duppy dancing around you. Wow...quick finger action is very necessary here, and there is a timer going on to record your actions. Hear a rasta voice talking throughout your game, encouraging you on. You can toggle sound off or pause the game whenever you want.
The game is loads of fun, and as an added bonus, you'll see cartoon scenes of actual Jamaica famous sites and locations. Take a quick trip to the islands, and experience delights of Candy Rasta!
