Toon Blast Review – Does it live up to the hype?

Toon Blast, if you’re a mobile gamer you’ve most likely heard of it. After all, it’s one of the most popular puzzle games on Android and iOS. The game has over 50 million downloads, but is the hype justified? Is Toon Blast really that fun? In today’s review we’re going to cover Toon Blast, and whether the game is worth playing. We go over the gameplay, the graphics, whether it’s pay to win and much more! Let’s get started.

The gameplay

Toon Blast is a match 3 puzzle game. Match 3 games are among the most popular game genre in the world and Toon Blast capitalized on this popularity very well. The gameplay in Toon Blast is quite simple, but enjoyable for young and old.

Simply match 3 cubes of the same color and they disappear and you’re rewarded with points. Complete the level and get as many points as you can and that’s the premise of Toon Blast in a nutshell.

However, just that would be a bit too simple. You’re allowed only a certain amount of moves to complete the level. The goal is to complete the level in as little moves as possible, because the moves you have left over will reward you extra points. In Toon Blast you can also go for combos, have access to boosters, teams and much more. Overall, the game is quite casual, but if you’re a fan of puzzle (especially match 3) then Toon Blast does it well. The gameplay is definitely enjoyable and there are a ton of levels available.

The graphics

When you first start playing Toon Blast you’ll immediately notice how colorful the game is.
