Jolly Jam is Rovio’s retort to Candy Crush Saga

With the new Jolly Jam Android and iOS offering, Angry Birds-maker Rovio is looking to cash in on the match 3 genre of mobile gaming that has been widely popularized by Candy Crush Saga. Available for free through the Google Play store and the Apple App Store, it does offer micro-transactions for gaining slight advantages to players in exchange of small amounts of cash.

The makers of Jolly Jam had to ensure that the game was not entirely similar to its counterpart, which is why they’ve blessed it with a number of unique features. Among them is the new box mechanic which allows you to pop jellies by enclosing them in boxes. You also need to battle monsters in certain levels moreover.

And then of course, there are all the things that make match 3 offerings so enjoyable. These include combo attacks, power-ups and more. Jolly Jam has been laced with hundreds of levels, but there’s no word on whether new ones will ever be added to it or not.

It reached smartphones in the same year, and has since been eating up thousands of hours of people’s time with its addictive offerings.
