Get an Extra Dose of Candy for Halloween with ‘Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat’ this Thursday

TouchArcade Rating:

Is there a better holiday than Halloween for candy-themed games? Developer Layton Hawkes, formerly of Halfbrick Studios and currently a designer at Prettygreat and also a solo dev on the side, released the fiendish logic puzzle game Puzzlepops! ($1.99) this past May. When I first saw Puzzlepops! at GDC prior to its release, I was worried that the cutesy candy theme might be a turnoff to some before they got a chance to see what an ingenious puzzler it was. Apparently my worries were unwarranted and Puzzlepops! has done okay for itself, as Hawkes is releasing a spooky sequel this Thursday called Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat. Along with adding some Halloween-style treats, the new Puzzlepops! also has some new tricks up its sleeve, which you can see in the following trailer.

As mentioned, the original Puzzlepops! is a smart, challenging puzzler, so if you haven’t checked it out before then I’d highly suggest it if you’re into puzzle games. If you’re among those who have already enjoyed the original Puzzlepops!, get ready for another heaping helping of it when Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat arrives this Thursday for free.
