There is more than one way to play with candies in a match-three game. And in this one, you will find a completely different style of lining up those sweets. Take control of a whole plate of jellies as you try and slide them all into the right place!

You will find that this single mechanic showcases another way to look at delectable match-three puzzles. Learn how to predict if each jelly cube will line up and see if it is enough. By matching them frequently, you enter into a groovy “Fever Mode” that lets you clear the cubes in pairs instead of the usual threes. You can also merge two cubes and keep them from sliding away from each other. Jellies with special effects might also pop up.

All of these features can help rack up a really high score, which can earn you special beans for playing with the “Gacha” machine! Assemble collections of various “Jelly Bean” characters, with cute themes like fruits and insects. Have them serve as your trophies to show everyone that you are a match-three master!

▲ Tip the plate in the right direction and line up those jellies for loads of points.

▲ “Fever Mode” allows you to make a match with fewer jellies to help clear the plate!

▲ Win special “Jelly Bean” characters from the “Gacha” machine as you keep scoring high.
