Like zombie games, I’m drawn to games (and, I’ll admit it, internet memes) about coffee. This entertaining little match-3, Coffee Addict by playvue, has been out for a few days now and I keep coming back to it for the giggle. I swear the character was not based on me…but I wouldn’t put it past the devs to have been spying on me in the mornings.
Your jittery little coffee addict friend is waiting as patiently as possible by the coffee urn. You work through a match-3 board which is reminiscent of the jewel boards in the Jewel Quest Mystery series. You aren’t just making matches, you have to clear the board under your coffee-house-themed items in order to keep coffee in the pot.
The timer is for bonus points, but don’t be lulled by the fact that you can keep playing once it ends. With more items added every few levels and the additional challenge that you have to wait for all the combos to finish falling before you can move again, you’ll soon find you need to watch your time as much as possible.
At some point, you are probably going to hit a snag. And if your uptight pal doesn’t get his coffee, he will have complete caffeine breakdown! Game over! Now let’s all go back to bed.
