Rovio Entertainment introduces Sugar Blast! – A new puzzle game IP that’s a fresh take on tap to match gameplay

Sugar Blast launches globally today, September 5th, after a successful soft launch period. The new puzzle game expands on the tap-to-match gameplay style found in Angry Birds Dream Blast, adding a sweet new theme to the mix.



5th September 2019 -- Today, Rovio Entertainment introduces Sugar Blast, a new fun and casual tap-to-match game with a whimsical visual theme full of delicious sweets. Previously in soft launch, the game now brings its accessible gameplay to app stores (iOS/Android) around the world. 

Sugar Blast is all about simple and satisfying gameplay that is easy to pick up and play. At the heart of Sugar Blast is a popular gameplay style derived from another of Rovio’s recent releases, Angry Birds Dream Blast (released: January 2019). Based on the success of Dream Blast, Sugar Blast takes the same core gameplay and introduces it to a new audience with a new visual treatment and playful characters.

“The mission with Sugar Blast was to create a compelling visual theme that introduces our proven gameplay to an even wider audience,” says Alex Pelletier-Normand, Rovio Head of Games. “As a result, the team has done a fantastic job creating a cute and vibrant world that fits perfectly with the game’s satisfying and stress-free feel. I’m pleased to say we now have two games in our portfolio which, while leveraging the same novel core gameplay, co-exist happily through their appeal to different audiences.”

Sugar Blast is available now as a free download in the App Store and Google Play.
