Candies ‘n Curses is a charming looking little spooky rogue-lite arcade action platforming game that sees you battling your way through a mansion filled with sugar-based spectres and powerful bosses to dispatch.
Coming to iOS and Android, in Candies ‘n Curses you take control of a young girl called Molli Pop as she makes her way through a mansion that’s haunted by the Phantom King and his spooky sugary minions. You have different upgradeable flashlights to help find off the many ghouls and ghosts that you encounter, and at the end of each level you can choose from a selection of curses or candies that can aid your progress – candies will give you a positive effect, while curses will give you a positive and a negative effect (such as increasing one stat and decreasing another).
You’ll need quick reflexes as you battle your way through hordes of enemies and powerful bosses, but you will have some allies in the mansion. You’ll be able to draw on the services of companions, such as a ghostly bat and a cute little dog, to join in the fray, and there are even NPCs such as a peddler who collects other-worldly artefacts in exchange for useful rewards.
It’s a great looking game with excellent pixel art animation, fast paced arcade gameplay and a spooky theme that’s perfect for Halloween. Sign up for the Beta to check out this spooky sugary treat.
