  1. Oh My Candy:

    Oh My Candy downloads to a 19.5 MB zip file and unpacks to a wrapped setup file, a security file (setup.gcd) and a read me doc with the terms and conditions and instructions

    The game installs to:

    C:\Games

    by default and is 10.7MB in size once unpacked, (smaller by 0.6MB from the previous time this was given away, but the initial Wheemplay intro has been removed. the actual version is the same i.e. v1.0.6). There is no shortcut installed nor any uninstaller. To delete just delete the installed executable. As with other Wheemplay games the game installs directly into the games folder with no folder of its own, but you can create one by adding Oh My Candy to the end of the installation path. A folder specific to the game will then be created.
    i.e. C:\Games\Oh My Candy

    I’ve not tested it on all of my computers. Most are offline at the moment awaiting various repairs or upgrades. It certainly works on my Win 7 and Win 8 platforms

    The Game:

    Here’s another Wheemplay game for your consumption. Most Wheemplay games are physics based, this one is no exception.

    The aim of ‘Oh My Candy’ is to move various candy pieces from one area of the arena using various tools to move the candy to a chubby hamster, who promptly eats the candy. There are various tasks to perform to enable candy to be moved to the hamster using various tools such as moving pencils matter transporters, barriers, blocks etc. some objects are movable others are fixed.

      oh my candy 004

      oh my candy 005

    Your task is to figure out the quickest route to get the candy to the hamsters mouth. Each of the 25 + levels are timed. At the end of each level a stats screen appears with the level time you attained, the total accumulated time so far for the game as well as the best time scored for that level. To the bottom left hand corner of the game arena are two buttons, the first is the settings where you can adjust various parameters, the second is to turn off the music. I’m sure most of you will find the music rather annoying after the first few minutes. I’d recommend you turn on your media player in the background and play some soothing music that will help you to concentrate on the various puzzle presented to you instead of listening to the in-game music. To the bottom right of the game arena are two more buttons, the first is a pause button, the second a restart level button. In between the two sets of buttons is a hint button. (I’ve posted links to some video walkthroughs below). The game starts in windowed mode by default, but you can play in full screen by clicking on the button to the top right of the window.

    The overall look and feel of the game is better than the usual Wheemplay fare. The graphics are cutesy carton in style and will probably appeal to the younger members of your families.

    There are loads of flash sites that have this game where you can play the game for free via your browser any time. There’s even a players pack with more levels, but this isn’t available with this version of the game. You’ll find the browser version on loads of free to play flash game sites such as Kongregate

    Video Walkthrough’s & Images:

    You can see video walkthroughs for this game HERE, HERE and HERE

    There are more, but once you’ve seen one they all seem similar. On average the walkthroughs posted on you tube take around 9 to 10 minutes to work through all 25 + levels. (probably practiced the games before they videoed the, so unless you are an expert puzzle solver, you should get more out of this game. I’ve uploaded images for most of the levels which you can see HERE as a slideshow.

    Conclusion:
    Actually ‘Oh My Candy’ is a better than average Wheemplay game, but IMO not worth the 0.99cents Wheemplay are asking because the 25 levels can be finished in les than 10 minutes. The game needs at least double the number of levels it has at present and if possible a levels editor would be an improvement so that users can create their own levels.

    Personally I’d package this game with several other physics based Wheemplay games and sell it as a compendium of physics based puzzles.

    I do think this would be a worthwhile addition to any families games library. Usefull tool to teach your children logical thinking. :)

    Score:

    Overall I’d give this game the following score:

    Game play – 7
    Graphics – 7
    Music – 5
    Replayability – 5
    Originality – 5

    Total = 29 out of 50 which equates to 5.8 out of 10

    Similar Games to todays Gamegiveaway:

    You can find loads of Hidden Object games for free over at MyPlayCity, and Gametop for example, Potion Bar (a previous giveaway), Jane Croft: The Baker Street Murder, hide and Secret, Spirit of Wandering, Natalie brooks: Secrets of Treasure house, Mystery of Unicorn Castle, Alices Magical Mahjong (yes this has hidden Object elements), Antique shop, Confectionary, Crossworlds – The flying city plus loads more.

    however both sites do try to install toolbars and hijack your browser, but for MyPlayCity it is avoidable by making sure you uncheck the check-boxes when installing the games though I’ve not checked Gametop for some time as they had become quite aggressive the last time I tried. In the case of MyPlayCity games; every time you start the game those check-boxes will be presented to you, so make sure you uncheck them, otherwise you’ll be the proud owner of a MyPlayCity/Ask tool bar and you’ll have to fiddle around to change your browsers home page back to whatever you have it set to. MyPlayCity do have a fantastic choice of arcade games, so although those things are an annoyance, I think it’s still worth the effort, especially if you can’t afford to purchase the games.

    A Request for help:

    Developers rely on good feedback to improve their games. If you download this game please take some time once you’ve played it a while to leave some constructive feedback either positive or negative. The more constructive feedback we get, the more likely developers are going to give more games away. The giveaway site already has a very good standing with the search engines. Developers want their products out there on the WWW, this site has the potential to do that. The game giveaway project gives away on average between 9 to 17 thousand downloads for each game depending upon what genre and how obscure the game is. That’s a lot of homes these games are being downloaded into and a lot of ‘potential’ cash that’s being lost by the developers. If we get better games because of better feedback, the community are likely to continue to benefit from the generosity of the developers. Satisfied community members are then more likely to visit the home sites of those developers and purchase games that they may not have bothered with before they discovered the developer via the game giveaway site, thus giving the developers more incentives to give away even more decent games.

    Please leave some feedback once you’ve checked the game out. It can be positive or negative, but please explain what your reasons were for the feedback you post. You could also leave suggestions for improving the game, for example, this game could do with more block types for the levels editor, add more power-ups, describing the ones you think would be suitable, add some mini games (which seem all the rage in some arcade games now) or enable the user to be able to change the in game music easily.

    Thank you in advance to all those who take the time to post a constructive comment.

    Regards
