Jelly Wars utilizes strategic bombing for its gameplay. You are placed in an arena, surrounded by jelly blocks that not only hinder your shooting capabilities, but protect you from enemy bombs. You have two different weapon choices, one that sticks to the bottom of blocks and one that sticks to the sides of them. Each one is necessary for different situations. To throw your bomb, touch your fighter and pull back on him. This allows you to aim and set the distance of your firing range. When you release your bomb, it will stick to whatever obstacle is in the way and blow it up. Your goal is to either destroy your opponent by chipping away at his hit points, or by knocking him into the water.
Overall, this universal game will bring you hours of fun. It is casual enough to be played while waiting for the bus, but addictive enough to keep you in for the night with your mobile device. The ability to play with strangers around the globe makes it even more exciting. At only $0.99, you should definitely add this to your Star Arcade repertoire.
