I have an addictive personality. No, that doesn't mean people are drawn to me like a moth to the flame (ha, you see what I did there with the game theme?) It does, however, mean I tend to latch onto something and increase my interest at rapid levels until I'm burned out or have entirely exceeded said items practical uses.
My regular readers know I was also raised a gamer- and that my taste in entertainment is quite eclectic. Just browse the numerous posts in our What I'm Streaming series and you'll discover I'll watch anything from a Hannibal Lector horror show to The Unbreakble Kimmy Schmidt and Parenthood. I've also begun steaming all of the original Munsters, circa 1964, so I dare you to figure me out- the only thing more eclectic than my taste in television and music is my interest in gaming.
Most unique to this game is the strategy element of building up your team of Fiends (bugs and amphibians) by collecting mites to upgrade their attack power and range. Puzzles are broken down into color collection, obstacles broken through, and 'Slugs' defeated. Each character has their own unique attack power (per color matched) that will slowly break down the health of the slugs, thus defeating them. Players must pay attention to the characters they choose to use for each round as special attacks for the characters can vary from clearing entire rows vertically versus horizontally, or changing colors around them. Powering up your characters and selecting the best special attacks are key to moving forward. This also means you will, in theory, never need to pay to pass a level- simply go back and earn mites until you can level up your Fiends to progress.
Malaria No More foundation.
Best Fiends has proven to be a wonderfully addictive game to compete against friends on the leader-boards, and keep my brain active with. The progressive problem solving, strategy, and puzzle aspects allow for me to play for chunks at night before bed, or attempt a level a few times in the waiting room at the doctor's office. And, not to brag, but I seem to be exceptionally god at it- I just hit level 95! Best Fiends is available for free download through the Google Play, Apple App, and Amazon App stores, so why not download it today and join me in the way against the slugs?
