We are super excited to announce the next evolution of Match-3 gameplay, Moshling Rescue!
This is our first ever game for the mums and dads of our millions of fans and is available now on Apple devices and Facebook.
Moshling Rescue is a twist on the hugely popular matching genre with six unique game modes, including boss mode, treasure mode and home mode – the very first time this has been seen in a game of this genre. The game also has a deep character driven narrative and unique collection mechanic that allows you to house all the Moshlings you save from the gloop!
There are hundreds of fun and challenging levels to keep players entertained, with new content updates and a version for Android on the way in the coming months.
Mind Candy has expanded from just kids entertainment to becoming a broader family entertainment company. This is our first game aimed at an older audience and we’re incredibly excited about launching it.

Today, we’re announcing the global launch of Moshi Monsters Village, now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch! Having launched in the UK on iOS before Christmas, the game has already proved it’s a hit with fans by reaching number two in the iTunes app charts during December and achieving over 250k downloads with no marketing spend within the first two weeks of the UK launch alone. So far there have been over 12,500 reviews in the app store averaging at 4.6 out of 5!
Moshi Monsters has been a massive hit for Mind Candy but we’re not resting on our laurels. We have several new projects bubbling away, some of which will be launching this year.
There’s one new mobile app that we’re particularly excited about. We can’t reveal too much about the new app yet as it’s shrouded in secrecy, but if you like games, great characters and want to be part of the next mobile sensation, this is for you. It’ll be aimed at a teenage audience so we’re looking to put together an Advisory Board of 13-19 year olds who can help give us feedback as the app develops.
GREE will be developing two games using the Moshi Monsters brand that will launch later this year and will be available in several languages including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin.
Mobile is a big focus for us, and this GREE deal represents one part of a much larger mobile strategy for Mind Candy. We have an in-house team developing other standalone apps and a mobile version of our desktop game.
We know kids love mobile – our fans ask us about it all the time and we want to create a wide variety of experiences for kids on mobile, not just games but educational apps, music, video and much more.

Andy Budd has spoken about Clearleft’s new application, Silverback – if you have not heard of Silverback, its used for usability testing. Can’t wait to see this in action – hopefully we can get our hands on it soon.
