Right about this time of year when travel time, summer blogging conferences, and family vacation takes precedence over round the clock working, I start the hunt for a fun new diversion. After all, cottage time equals road trips, sometimes as a passenger. That means my iPhone is never far from hand. I have several killer apps I rely on when I feel like tuning out and turning off for a bit. Oh I still have my books, my swimming, my beach, but this year I also have my iPhone App Cascade.
This week my kids and I took a lengthy train trip to Montreal and then Ottawa where we stopped to see the Katy Perry concert, which rocked by the way. All that travel time meant I had a fair bit of quiet to test drive Cascade. My kids did too. So, what’s the deal with Cascade?
Jasper the Mole takes you through eight colourful worlds featuring over 100 puzzles. Cascade combines two of the most successful game mechanics ever combined – Slots and Match – 3 to create a dynamic new app that can last as long as you want. You can also squeeze Cascade into a short little break as well. No massive commitment of time required.

Cascade is an app for all of those people who are bored with candy-themed apps. Cascade is a Match-3 puzzle, arcade game with a difference. There are numerous power ups, boosts, wilds, burst gems and tricks. Playing this game for the first time is a lot of fun because of all the mystery power ups and tricks that spontaneously appear when you master new levels. I enjoyed figuring out what each new power up and trick allowed me to unlock. You can master or explore several different lands. Each time you Match -3 or more you can trigger a cascade of gems. Occasionally you hit the zone and the game magically unveils great new screens and territories to play. Cascade is a great summer game. But you will also want to keep this one around for the rest of the year to play when you have a spare moment or two. Cascade is fun, challenging and just different enough to make it worth downloading. You can also link up with your friends via Facebook and compete to see who unlocks the most gems, if that’s your game style.
