First Look at Moshling Rescue Mind Candy (Moshi Monsters Fame) First Mobile Game Targeting Adults
Mind Candy today announces the global launch of their first game targeted to the mums and dads of their millions of young fans with the new Moshling Rescue™. This free-to-play title is available now on Apple devices and Facebook.
Moshling Rescue™ aims to appeal to a new audience that enjoys ‘pick up and play’ games, as Mind Candy expands its portfolio to become a global entertainment company that creates games for the whole family. It also builds on the company’s ever expanding collection of mobile experiences including chart topping Moshi Monsters Village™ which recently surpassed over 1.5 million downloads.
CEO and founder of Mind Candy, Michael Acton Smith said: “Mind Candy has expanded from just kids entertainment to becoming a broader family entertainment company. This is our first game aimed at an older audience and we’re incredibly excited about launching it.”
Moshling Rescue™ is the next evolution of Match-3 gameplay, combining a variety of unique gameplay modes with a character-driven narrative and a collection mechanic, to provide hours of enjoyment for an older audience. With fun yet challenging gameplay, players must match the gummies to rescue the Moshlings as they explore hundreds of adventure-packed levels. When the going gets tough, players can purchase boosts and extra lives to enhance their entertainment.
Moshling Rescue™ is unique in game functionality, with six game modes:
- Home mode – For the first time in a game of this genre, players must collect specific gummies to move the Moshling across a game-style track to reach home.
- Boss mode – Big Bad Bill tries his best to prevent players from reaching their goal.
- Dig mode – Explode and select gummies to dig further down the screen to complete the level.
- Drop mode – Rescue the Moshlings by dropping them down through a big stack of gummies.
- Clear mode – Everything is covered in gloop! Match over it to clean it all away.
- Treasure mode – Unlock treasure and win jellybeans by merging sacks, crates & chests together.
“Moshling Rescue is a fantastic game that makes great use of the Facebook platform, not only on Facebook canvas, but also on iOS,” said Bob Slinn, Head of Gaming at Facebook EMEA. “It’s a great game, with huge potential and we’re very happy to see our partner Mind Candy bringing quality content on Facebook.”
Players can connect their mobile or tablet edition of Moshling Rescue™with their Facebook account to pick up and play where they left off for even more fun. Players will also receive an extra life across both platforms by connecting to their Facebook account.
What sets Moshling Rescue™ apart from other games of this genre is the deep character driven narrative, which is synonymous with all Mind Candy games. There is a unique collection mechanic where players earn a Moshling after completing certain levels, with rewards earned for completing a full set of characters that can then be viewed at any time in The Tree House.
Moshling Rescue™ was developed in house by Mind Candy and can be downloaded for free, however some game items can also be purchased for real money. In the coming months, Mind Candy will offer content updates and enhancements to the already feature-rich game, as well as release the game on Android devices.
