Correction: Our earlier article said that Jolly Jam was coming soon to iOS. That was a mistake. It is out now. Download it here for free.
Rovio recently posted this video to their YouTube page showing an upcoming game from their Rovio Stars publishing division. Jolly Jam is described as:
An all-new way to match! Draw a box around jellies jam ’em and help Prince Jam save Jelly Kingdom in this fresh and fruity puzzler from Rovio Stars!
Interestingly, the Jolly Jam Facebook page shows that it was a fully functioning app until October 2014, so it looks like this will not be a new game, but a way to bring a second life to a previously popular app.
The Facebook page notes that Jolly Jam will be available worldwide for iOS and Android on Thursday, February 19, 2015. The imagery shows some Chinese New Year-themed art, so it is possible that the game may launch with a holiday theme, as with the recent updates to Plunder Pirates and Angry Birds games: Stella, GO! and EPIC.
The game seems similar to Juice Cubes and Candy Crush, but boasts a new way to match. What do you think? Are you excited to play or do you have match game burnout? Have you played the previous version of Jolly Jam? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Thanks to Nester @gx-d for the heads up!!
