Yummies is a logic-based puzzle game from YUMMY Factory, the team behind the mobile brain teasers IQ Mission and IQ Mission Epilogue. Your goal is to guide squishy-looking aliens to their respective capsules, nudging them along paths while you deal with all sorts of barriers and blockades. It's an extremely cerebral experience that's softened by a phenomenal visual presentation, right down to the grinning little aliens you'll be helping out.
Tap and slide one of the yummies to move them across the board. A colored capsule square sits amidst the other squares, and all you have to do is clear a path so each yummy can reach the capsule. Naturally, obstacles get in your way at just about every turn, like blocks that rotate when you step on them, portals, locks and keys, and so on. Yummies gets pretty devious with its puzzles later in the game, but the creativity poured into the level design is worth fighting your way through a few dozen brain-benders!
The more thorough and frugal you are with each puzzle in Yummies the more stars you'll earn. Stars unlock new planets, each filled with more levels and more things to see. At the time of writing over 150 stages are available, and future updates promise to increase that number. Yummies is a solid puzzle game with an even level of challenge and a great sense of style. Help the little alien critters out, won't you?
