After playing both Coffee Rush and Coffee Rush 3, I have to admit this is the best of the three. This has the elements of both the prequel and the sequel, and Coffee Rush 2 won’t boggle your eyes out in trying to keep up with it. We still have the dame formula of ice, coffee beans, sugar, milk, and ice, and Smokestack is still trying to kick us out of town and make everyone drink his nasty coffee. I guess he just doesn’t get it after three of these match 3 games devoted to making sure the fictional town we play still has access to cream of sweet bean soup. (No azuki bean cakes here, really, but what a great idea for the fourth game!)

After doing the review for the second sequel of Coffee Rush, I figured it was time to go back to the beginning and find out what made this game so popular. It is pretty much a match 3 game, and this formula is used throughout the game to give upgrades, except for the ones you pay for. Your corporate enemy is still Smokestack, but why anyone would want to buy nasty coffee from a place that looks like a Rustbelt factory is rather surprising, but as his coffeehouses are pretty much the only game in town, I guess people would still rather stop there than try to make some joe at the house. So, it’s up to us to bring a new standard in state of the art coffee and service to town. We use the match 3 puzzles to run the business, make new recipes, and market to new customers. Along the way, we get more complex puzzles, new kinds of customers, and take over the neighborhoods one by one, driving away Smokestack Coffee’s business with brighter, more wholesome shops and coffee combos that will keep any caffeine junkie very sated. It is pretty amazing at how many ways we can combine coffee beans, sugar, milk, whipped cream and ice, but surely there are even more bizarre combos out there, and this game doesn’t even bring mint and chocolate into play. So, if you need a fix of match 3 action and coffee, hit up the local McCafe’ or Starbucks, if you are lucky enough to be close to one, take advantage of the free wi-fi, and get your Coffee Rush
