The description of Toon Blast
Toon Blast is a match-two puzzle game set in a colorful world with all sorts of cartoon characters. It is perfect for kids, but parents will surely love it too – for the sole ability to keep any kid from five to twelve occupied for prolonged periods.
In the case of this kids-oriented game even the popular match-three formula was discarded as too hard. The difficulty was cranked down to match-two rules, and that made familiar gameplay even easier to pick up. Finally, many kinds of fluffy mascots were added to accompany players, and so the perfect game for kids was born. No five-year-old could withstand the simple charm of this game from that moment.
Still, it definitely seems that the main target audience of this game are parents of those five-year-olds. Due to its ability to occupy kids for a long time, Toon Blast can really help adults to survive a long road trip or maybe a doctor’s appointment. It is interesting enough to keep your toddler welded to the screen for hours, and almost every parent would be happy to have such a game somewhere near.
The only serious problem with Toon Blast is that it is indeed a free-to-play game – but with in-game purchases and a strong incentive to ling the game with your Facebook account. With children being its clear target those details just don’t sit quite well. Some parents might even rethink letting their kids play it when they’re going to see a request for real money purchase every ten minutes or so.
Graphics are the cornerstone such games are usually built on, and Toon Blast has all the parts together. There are vibrant colors, the interface is quite simple, and the next goal is obvious. Special effects are colorful and add a lot to graphics of this game. In addition, there is always some kind of mascot on a screen, so the game doesn’t leave you alone in any sense.
Sound effects are what especially important for such games. On the one hand, they must be cheerful and loud enough to keep the attention of a child, while on the other hand, they must be not too cheerful and not too loud in order to keep his or her parents sane. Toon Blast seems to have found the perfect balance between those two: smooth background music can remind parents of old cartoons and induce pleasant nostalgia.
All in all, the game is great. Graphics are definitely what you would expect from it, and the sound effects add a lot to the experience. Mechanics are intuitive and go well with the controls which are simple and soft. Your kid will love all the fluffy helpers including ducks in different suits, and you will probably remain sane a little longer without his or her constant attention. Toon Blast has high replay value even for a match-two game and can motivate game sessions hours long. But the monetization system is a thing that’s a bit off: it just doesn’t get well with the main audience of the game, even with the modern children playing more responsibly than ever.03 Feb 2019
