Candies VS Hypnodeer is a very fascinating arcade game with elements of a puzzle and a strategy, in which you will be faced with a mass of different confectionery and hypnotic deer. The first ones will give you satisfaction and joy, and you won't get nothing but problems from the second ones. The essence of the game is to try to understand all the secrets of pastry cooking and to create a true masterpiece that is not only delicious, but also beautiful and insanely expensive.
GameplayTo create some product in this game you will need the ingredients. They must be the same and in at least three pieces in contact with each other through the sides of the cells. It follows that the game is reminiscent of arcades of the genre "three in a row". Perhaps, this is partly true, but here while composing chains of three identical pieces only two cells get released rather than three, and a new and better product emerge in the cell where you have placed the last element of the trio.
Thus, a chocolate bar appears of three cells filled with sugar and milk. Three chocolate bars may become a cake horn decorated with colored creams, and three these cakes provide you with a pie. By combining three cells with pies in a single line or in the L-form, we will get a piece of cake, and if you manage to arrange the ingredients in such a way as to create a chain of three pieces of cake, then a sugar castle will rise on one of the cells.
Pleasant surprisesIn addition to the ingredients listed, on the playing field there sometimes appear small bottles with cream which can dissolve any element (even if this is a deer), as well as containers with something unknown that can replace the missing ingredients and be used as a third element in a chain of two identical ones.
The deer emerge on the playing field at the most inopportune moment, and the main difficulty lies in the fact that you cannot refuse them. That is, in any case, these horny creatures must appear on the playing field and take one of the free cells. Another nuance associated with the deer, is that they can move freely on the playing field and occupy different cells after each of your moves.
Bailout platformTo the left on the playing field there is a small area that you can use as a warehouse for temporary storage of any element. That is, for example, a bottle with cream that can relieve you of any element, has been left on the conveyor, but yet you don't need to replace anything. You can safely put this container aside and keep allocating the ingredients, and when the cream will be needed, you can just take it back from the warehouse and apply on an element that began to hinder.
ResumeBesides, at your disposal there is a shop where you can buy the missing items for a very reasonable amount of game points. The game has two versions. In the paid version there are no restrictions, but in the free one you cannot use the temporary warehouse and shop. The game is almost cross-platform and you can compete with your friends in achievements even if their smartphone is based on Symbian, MeeGo, or they play through Xbox 360 or Windows 8.
