NEW YORK – Dec. 11, 2012 – Developer PlayPlus today announced the launch of Canimals Match 3, a new, fast-paced game based on the Canimals characters from VOOZCLUB. Canimals Match 3 debuts as an offshoot of Cantasia, a kid-friendly social gaming hub that recently launched on Facebook. The launch of Canimals Match 3 marks the first mobile mini-game release from the Cantasia platform. The game is available for download exclusively on Samsung Apps, and will be coming to Google Play in January.

Canimals Match 3 is a simple yet addicting puzzle game, where gamers work to attain the highest score possible by combing three or more same-color blocks in a row. Players can pick either the standard arcade mode or tilted mode, where the colored blocks are less numerous and shifted sideways, for a new type of gameplay. Gamers earn coins for each completed match, which they can spend on game boosters, like the speed booster or time booster. By signing-in with Facebook, friends can battle one another in a tournament mode, as well as pit themselves against others from around the world. Canimals Match 3 also links with the match 3 mini-game from Cantasia, so players can play on the go while still improving their Cantasia City.
VOOZCLUB has previously released 18 apps around the world, including Talking Oz, which hit #1 in the US App Store in the entertainment category and received hundreds of thousands of downloads on Google Play.
Canimals Match 3 features include:
- Arcade and Tilted Mode – Play in the default arcade mode, or change things up with the more challenging tilted mode
- Earn Coins – Receive coins for each round of match 3 played
- Buy Select Boosters – Gain an edge on the competition with the speed booster, which swaps blocks faster, the time booster, which adds more time, as well as other boosters coming soon
- Energy Meter – Play up to 10 match 3 games at a time before needing to recharge energy
- Social Competition – Sign-in with Facebook and play against friends from around the world
- Samsung Apps Exclusive – Canimals Match 3 launches on Samsung Apps for a limited time only, after which it will be available on Google Play
