Join Cooper Cat, Wally Wolf, and Bruno Bear on their wacky cartoon adventures in this amazingly addictive block-buster game, Toon Blast! Tap on cubes of the same color to collect them from the board, get awesome boosters to unleash a flurry of brilliant cascading effects, and turn those gears in your brain as you figure out creative ways to get around or solve various challenging obstacles.
The game doesn’t really have a storyline, though considering that the game has a cartoon, Looney Tunes-like theme, it might be a great idea to add in snippets of story-based animated videos in between certain level milestones. I’m sure players would be more than interested to uncover more hilarious stories about their cartoon characters, Cooper Cat, Wally Wolf, and Bruno Bear.
Being a block buster, the gameplay in Toon Blast mainly involves tapping on clusters of blocks of the same color. However, it’s interesting to note that you merely need to have 2 same-colored cubes together to collect them. So, in a way, the game is more match-2 than match-3.
Of course, you’ll be rewarded with amazing boosters if you do manage to collect more cubes together. For instance, if you tap on a cluster of 5 cubes, you’ll get a Rocket booster, which can then be tapped on to clear entire rows or columns. Whether you’ll get a row Rocket or column one is completely random though.
If you manage to group 7 blocks together, then you’ll get a Bomb. Bombs will clear all the cubes within their immediate 1-block vicinity when tapped on. For 9-cube matches, on the other hand, you’ll get a Disco Ball. Disco Balls all adopt the color of the cubes they are born from and subsequently, they will only collect all cubes of the same color as they are when tapped on. The best thing of all? You can even combine two of these boosters to get a more spectacular effect!
These boosters can be usually obtained for free by matching blocks while you’re in the game, but you can buy some prior to entering a game. The boosters that you purchase and use will then appear at the start of a level, giving you a significant advantage right from the beginning.
What if you realized you need some help while you’re in a game? Well, if that’s the case, you can use in-game boosters like the Hammer, Boxing Gloves, Anvil and Dice. The Hammer, for example, allows you to remove any cube or obstacle you like while the Boxing Gloves will clear everything in a row of your choice.
Talking about obstacles… like most match-3 games, Toon Blast has tons of obstacles to spice things up a bit. From balloons to rubber ducks to even larger rubber ducks, you’ll need to find ways to collect them either by matching blocks nearby or by dropping it down to the bottom of the board.
Similarly, all the levels in this game are objectives-based, though the goals you need to achieve may vary from level to level. You will be given a limited number of moves to complete said objectives. There are up to 3 stars you can earn per level as well. These stars can be accumulated to open Star Chests. You can also get Toon Chests by reaching certain level milestones.
As a freemium game, Toon Blast has an in-game shop selling various bundles containing advantages like unlimited hearts, boosters, in-game boosters and more. You can also purchase coins using real money. These coins can then be spent to buy extra moves when you ran out of them.
Interestingly, Toon Blast has a guild-like feature called Teams. By joining a team, you will not only get free 100 coins and free lives via gifting; you can even chat with other players. The catch here is that you’ll need to first reach level 20 to join a team.
The graphics in Toon Blast have the tendency to be on the bright and cheerful side, not only because it’s a casual game but also because of its cartoon theme. Personally, I really like the tiny details in the game. For instance, in level 10, you need to collect 6 rubber ducks, but what’s really interesting about this level is that all these rubber ducks look different. One of them has sunglasses on while another one wears a tie.
In terms of sound, the game has a quirky tune that may remind you of the good ol’ Looney Tunes cartoons. The variety is nice enough to keep things more engaging.
In short, Toon Blast is definitely a blast of a block-busting game to play. The game may start off incredibly easy but as more obstacles are introduced, you’ll find that the game presents a decent challenge. Considering that this game was developed by Peak Games, the very same people behind the very popular Toy Blast, this is a game fans of the latter might really enjoy. Do give it a try!
