Wooga and Fox Digital Entertainment have partnered together to create a brand new Futurama mobile game.

The game, entitled Futurama: Game of Drones, will have the player join the Planet Express crew on a voyage to win a trade war with the evil MomCo. As players deliver their cargo, they are will have to solve dangerous puzzles and delve into iconic environments from the Futurama universe.

The official blurb reads:

"The game, titled Futurama: Game of Drones, takes players on a journey with the Planet Express crew as they fight a desperately imbalanced trade war against longtime shipping rival MomCo. While delivering dangerous cargo to hazardous locations under ill-advised circumstances, players connect groups of delivery drones to solve an array of fiendish puzzles as they venture into iconic environments from the Futurama universe."

There is currently no information on exactly what environments will be used or how many of the characters from the show will be present in the game (though I would hope it to be all of them). Hopefully, a follow-up announcement will be released with all the details for Futurama fans.

The official announcement does not mention a release date for the game either, but if any news of the when the Berlin-based developer will have the game out surfaces, we'll be sure to update you and let you know!

Futurama: Game of Drones will have an original storyline written by Dave Grossman (Secret of Monkey Island, The Wolf Among Us), Jonathon Myers (Game of Thrones: Ascent) and Patrice M. Verrone (one of the original writers of Futurama).

Why I Prefer Jelly Splash Over Candy Crush https://www.gameskinny.com/lc5z0/why-i-prefer-jelly-splash-over-candy-crush https://www.gameskinny.com/lc5z0/why-i-prefer-jelly-splash-over-candy-crush Thu, 24 Oct 2013 09:44:58 -0400 Alexa Serrano

A few months ago, my mother, sister and grandmother were begging me to start playing Candy Crush—not because they wanted me to play a cool new game, but because they wanted me to send them new lives so that they could continue playing.

I started playing for a while, but after a few weeks it became a bit boring. Now I don't want to try to mess with a game that clearly has over 46 million monthly users (including my mother who plays it non-stop on her iPad, Android, and other peoples phones and tablets), but I wanted to share a similar game that I prefer over Candy Crush. 

Jelly Splash

Wooga, a social network game and mobile developer stationed in Berlin, Germany developed Jelly Splash, a free-to-play puzzle game. Although the idea of the game is similar to Candy Crush, it's different because you aren't swapping positions of two adjacent jellies. Instead, you connect or link same colored jellies in order to clear or "splash" the jellies on each island you are on. There are no time limits, but there are missions like "Clear all the dark slime! You have 20 moves!"

Easy to Learn

Jelly Splash allows new users to quickly learn new missions that develop as you advance through levels by a simple walkthrough. Below is a walkthrough video of the first level in Jelly Splash.

Typically long connecting lines (like the red one you saw in the video) give you an explosive jelly; however, because it's the first level of the game you don't have that ability yet. 

Graphics and Sound

Jelly Splash stands out a lot to me over Candy Crush because of its cute jelly characters and its unique islands. You have the typical looking island, the snowy island, a volcanic island, a shipwrecked island and more!

The gameplay sounds are also very appealing. Sound personally helps me know when I have connected the right amount of jellies I need to create an explosive one. I prefer Jelly Splash's gameplay sounds over Candy Crush because after a while the "Sweet, Tasty, Delicious, Divine, and Sugar Crush" becomes a bit annoying. 

Above are the five different jelly creatures you will be connecting. As you advance through each stage you will come across some tough dark mushrooms who won't move out of the way unless you connect a jelly near them. If you don't connect a jelly near them, the mushrooms will multiply. This makes the game tough as you start to have limited amount of moves and limited amount of space to move around. 

Other Missions

As you continue to advance through the levels, you will not only face the challenge of defeating  mushrooms, and clearing dark slime, but you will also have to bring all of the diamonds to the bottom. This is similar to the Candy Crush fruits that you have to bring to the bottom. 

Where is it available?

You can start playing Jelly Splash on Facebook, your iPad, iPhone, or on your Android device! Start splashing some jellies and let me know what you think!
