Bloxie is Latest Poison to Join Candystand Family

Candystand takes advantage of us. We know this. Whenever they send us a new game, we crack our knuckles and prepare to trash them.

Unfortunately we can't, because the games have gotten really freakin' good. No, scratch that. The Candystand folk are just mighty talented at isolating classic standbys (ping pong? Come on) and appropriating them for their own maniacal purposes. Consider Bloxie, a new concoction that's had us stuck on stupid for at least a half hour.

If we could track how many hours we've lost on the Candystand website, we'd probably find we're putting in the same amount of time as a Wrigley's intern.

Game is pretty good, though they've done better. Advergaming seems to be a dying trend, but Wrigley is committed to it. Any ideas why?

They've invested so much in the campaign, man. And as long as people are looking for crap to do when they're bored, I don't know that advergaming will ever entirely go away.
