In this puzzle-style game the player must connect up three or more jellies of the same colour to achieve the specified goal
In this game, players start with an allocation of lives and gold coins. The player must connect adjoining three or more jellies of the same colour – the longer the line, the more star points are scored. The connected jellies are then cleared from the puzzle and stars are added to the total at the side. The number of moves allowed is limited. There are many levels, each level becoming more difficult, with new challenges. Helpful features e.g. Super Jellies are unlocked at various points of the games – some are free, more can be bought with gold coins.
When a player fails to achieve their goal within the allocated number of moves, they can spend gold coins to buy extra moves. Otherwise they lose a life and can try again. When they run out of lives, they can wait a specified time for more lives, use gold coins to get more or ask a friend for more lives via Facebook. If the player has insufficient coins, they can purchase more.
A possible learning benefit could be that the player must plan the best combinations of moves to connect jellies and achieve the goal within the allowed number of moves.
Gold coins can be purchased (for $1.99 to $109.99). The iTunes store advises that players can “turn-off the payment feature by disabling in-app purchases in your device’s settings”. Purchasing in Facebook games can be by debit card, credit card, Paypal and Facebook gift card. There is also the option to charge smaller purchases to a mobile phone account, however an additional “fee” which was close to an extra 100+% was added. The mobile phone purchase transaction screen states “Customers under age 18 must have account holder's permission”. A text message is sent to the mobile number entered to confirm payment. Parents should be aware that if they enter credit card details, the player can make more than one purchase. Facebook stores the card details unless they are removed.
Players are prompted to invite their friends. When the player runs the game in Facebook, the app receives the player’s public profile, email address and friend list. A leader board is shown of the “High Score” for each level, which displays the player’s first name, profile picture and rank against their friends. When players run out of lives, they are given the option of asking friends for more lives via Facebook.
