Moshling Rescue! is a match-three style application. The puzzle game is free to play but does include in-game purchases as assets that make levels easier to pass are all to be paid with real money. The game is designed for those over 13 years old, usually marketing itself as being made for the parents of the children who play Moshi Monsters.

Moshling Rescue – Mind Candy's take on a match 3 mechanic, received front page global features on both Apple and Google's mobile app stores. The challenge was to use existing characters intended for 5 year olds in a game meant for much older freemium audience. This was achieved through challenging game modes, detailed rendering, and an aspirational (but relatable) hero character, Ellie. The game has gone on to receive thousands of 5-star reviews from satisfied players.

The theme music for Moshling Rescue is written and produced by composer Sanj Sen (who is the head of that department of Mind Candy) that they had trouble giving a proper place, hence they named it "Homeless music". This means the piece might have been intended for something else or was used because they happened to have it.
Here's some lovely music we once commissioned, that we keep trying to give a home. So far we have not succeeded but we've come close, so close!
