[prMac.com] Westbury, New York - Rolar Studios today is pleased to introduce Candy Eater 1.0 for iOS, their new arcade Game featuring Andy, the ectoplasmic, animated germ, who loves candy. Players drag Andy around a plate full of candy, helping him eat as much as possible, scoring points, making combos and bonuses, and not allowing 100 candies to accumulate. When white, Andy can eat any color, disc-shaped candies. But having eaten a colored candy, Andy turns a matching color himself, and he can only safely eat more of that same colored candy until he fully digests them or until he eats a rainbow candy, both of which restore him to white. Players must be careful not to let Andy eat a spoiled, dark green candy or he will vomit, and eating a Die candy will kill him and end the game.
The candies in this lighthearted arcade game are all of the same disc shape and come in blue, red, or green, each with a complementary colored spiral swirl. At the beginning of play, there are just a few candies on the plate, and it is simple to choose a color and start eating by dragging Andy around the plate. It is not necessary to actually drag Andy over the candy, because he vacuums it up automatically whenever he gets close to it, leaving the wrong-colored candy behind. Combos are score according to consecutive consumption of one color, and later in the game, Andy can quickly ingest 30 or more candies in a few seconds.
As the plate fills with candies, they overlap and form layers, obscuring the candy at the bottom. Charging blindly into an orgy of candy eating can be dangerous for Andy, but it can also lead to high scores. The game includes a tutorial, a contextually based help function, and scoring overlays.
