Trying To Get In The Holiday Spirit…

I haven’t been playing as much of Christmas Sweeper as I had originally planned on this season, so I’m very far behind. It’s been hard for me to get in the Christmas spirit this year, so I haven’t felt like playing it much. Since Christmas is only a few days away, I decided to play a little bit and finish a few levels!

I left off on Level 21, which I sailed through with no problems.

I already cleared some of the board by the time I snapped this pic, but it still wasn’t too hard.

Level 22 wasn’t too bad either.

Looks complex, but it wasn’t too bad!

Then I got to Level 23. Wow! This one looks like it’s going to take some work!

Are you sure this is only Level 23?!?

Clearing the chained up pieces of the board really proved to be challenging, especially the ones on the very bottom row.

I was beginning to think I wasn’t going to ever clear it, but I finally did.

One star is better than none!

Over sixteen minutes to complete one level? Uggh! I’m glad I got it done, but I wasn’t in the mood to play any other levels after that.  I started playing a couple other games in the meantime- I may blog about that either later tonight or tomorrow. =)

iOS Love…

Today I decided to show my iOS games some love! I have many games downloaded onto my iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch (which I can’t find right now…ugh!!) and I have a tendency to play games on them for an extended period, then not play them at all for awhile! One game I love to play during the holiday season is Christmas Sweeper. Christmas Sweeper is a fun match-type game that resembles Candy Crush. The difference is, of course, everything is holiday themed! From the little tiles that you are matching to the cheerful Christmas music, this game always gets me into the holiday spirit.

Clear all the black bricks to win!

Although I have beaten several of the levels, I decided to start with Level 1. It’s a new year, after all! The goal of the game is to clear all of the “black bricks” (they look like little blobs of chocolate to me) by matching 3 or more Christmas-themed tiles. The game starts off easy enough, but soon starts to present several challenges!

It’s fun to match Christmas-themed tiles. 

As you can see in the screenshot above, sometimes you need to hit the black bricks more than once to make them disappear.

As you progress through the game, sometimes you will find that tiles are chained up! This can be quite tricky, as you need to line up similar tiles to unlock it, then line up tiles again to clear it!

level8
Things can get tricky!

You either earn 1, 2 or 3 stars on each level. The timer bar runs behind the stars and tells you how many stars you are earning. I’m assuming that when the timer runs out, you fail the level- I just haven’t encountered that yet! Yep, I’m that good LOL. There are several power ups to assist you, including a bomb and a firework.

Right now, I’m on Level 12. There are 150 levels in this game, so I’m sure the levels will really start to get challenging later on. Christmas Sweeper is a fun game you can play in short spurts, and you can download it for free on your Apple or Android device! You can pay to remove the ads, but they don’t really bother me enough to do so.

That’s it for tonight, everyone! See ya!
