I will admit that I am not a HUGE gamer. I am really more of a puzzle person myself. Since the days of Bejeweled, I have been playing match 3 games like a boss. The first game to ever replace Bejeweled for me, was Candy Crush. As soon as I started playing, I was hooked and I played until I got bored with the game.
A few weeks ago, I started playing Moshling Rescue. I was already pretty familiar with Moshi Monsters because my boys have been playing it forever, so I wasn't sure this game would be fun for an adult. I was wrong. I have been playing this game non-stop and I am now stuck on a level that I just can't beat.
On some levels you are trying to get a Moshling home safely while getting a certain number of a certain color matches. Sometimes only one color will move the Moshling across the board. Sometimes your being chased, attacked, or gooped. Oh and you only have 5 lives to do it in, so you better pay attention. There are also a few bonus rounds that you can play or bypass.
Like I said before, I am currently addicted to this game, and hope to get past this level before I slam my phone onto the concrete.
