Webgame Wednesday: Candy Box
Candy Box is causing an interweb stir for its old (old) school look and unusual game play. Surf on over to the game's homepage and you'll be greeted with information on your mounting candy supply. You can click a button to eat all the candies if you want, but that appears to be your only method of interaction with the game. What gives? Have a little patience, my friend. Leave your browser open, let those candies accumulate, and the game's possibilities will open up for you. Soon you'll be harvesting lollipops, buying weapons and fighting monsters. This oddball, text-only (with occasional ASCII art) adventure/resource management game grows bigger and bigger the longer you play. Plus it really makes you want some candy.
