Jelly Splash is a simple game-three challenge video game developed by the designer Wooga in collaboration with Caves and Gearbox. It originally was released for iPhone and iPad and later released on Facebook, YouTube, and the Android mobile social network platform KakaoTalk in October 2021. The game follows the story of a washed-up football star washed away in a mysterious lake, who must find his way out and start a new life again. Jelly Splash quickly gains the attention of both iPhone users and Android enthusiasts everywhere and has been hyped as a unique cross between a sport and an action/adventure hybrid.
Unlike its predecessor The Candy Crush Saga Jelly Splash features colorful and vibrant visuals that are comparable to other applications available on the App Store. The interface is fairly basic and similar to other touchscreen games in terms of appearance, but the graphics are detailed and lively enough to still make me happy each time I see the Jelly Splash screen. The controls are simple, with each mini-game requiring you to touch one of the squares in an increasingly narrow layout filled with jelly jars that change color depending on what's inside them. The goal in all the games is to try to get as many points as possible, which is done by tapping in the corresponding boxes to make the jars open. The mini-games themselves vary quite a bit, ranging from a puzzle where you have to cut a certain number of jelly jars to a puzzle in which you have to try to cook an egg by clicking the screen.
One thing that really draws players in is the overall design of the game. The artwork, sound, and animation are all done in a charming, cartoonish style, and really bring the point-and-click gameplay to a whole new level. I especially like how the various characters are drawn in a funny, cartoony style that evokes images from other types of online games, such as My Neighbor's House or Code Name: Lava Lake. There are even moving elements, such as when one of the jelly squirts out of one of the jellies and starts to tumble around the screen. Overall, Jelly Splash is a great video game created by a studio known for its high-quality visual elements and well-designed gameplay.
