screen480x480-3Looking for another Candy Crush-like to play and really love Square Enix? Well, today is your lucky day (particularly if you're Australian), as Squeenix just soft launched Smoothie Swipe in Australia. The game is reasonably popular on Facebook, with just barely shy of half a million likes as of this writing.

First impressions of the game make it seem remarkably similar to most other free to play match three games, with various power-up boosters that clear loads of blocks, additional blockers being thrown in to the mix as you progress through the game, and more. With a fruit theme.

Like most of these games, there's loads of levels. 400 are in the soft launched version, and it's safe to assume they'll consistently be adding more to keep the end-game carrot on a stick far out in front of most players. Square Enix has been an interesting company to watch as they get deeper in to mobile development, and really, I suppose it was only inevitable that they eventually release a Candy Crush-like.

On the bright side, at least they didn't decide to cash in on the Final Fantasy IP with a FF-themed Candy Crush, right?

    Is it just me or would something with RPG stylings have seemed better?

    Ok, not cheapening their FF brand but I just mean generally.

    Instead it looks to have been given the most vanilla treatment of the theme possible; could have more of a calypso/festival flavor.

    Off to play this game for a bit for some impressions but...eh. We're all just killing time for the next hour and a half until the Destiny beta hits hey? :P

      Pleasant enough timekiller without being particularly noteworthy.

      PULP APPTION. It'll make you feel like a TART for toeing the casual gamer LIME. How do you like them APPLES? BERRY much? Sorry, it's the ZEST I can do.

      What is this Destiny beta you speak of?

      • Tony Teulan

        I think it's a F2P game from Zynga or something.

      • ZarieoZ

        No, Destiny is a new big game that's hitting playstation, it has been making some noise for the last couple of months, xbox is getting it next week or so.

    I usually only play these types of games if a franchise I like is involved like Marvel, Final Fantasy, or Doctor Who... but unless you're the owner of Jamba Juice or Smoothie King, who's favorite thing is smoothies?

      How about a Fat Tuesday themed one?

      I'd play the shit out of that. :)
