The developer’s Shape Keeper has taken to the app store again to release their brand new game Cashman Blast.
Its deemed to be the new money-making game that users will make a ton by using. However, how true is that?
Will this new game make you any money at all? Will anyone be able to cashout from playing it?
These questions, along with many more, is what I will be answering in this post.

Cashman Blast App Review Summary
- Owner: Shape Keeper
- What Are They?: Cube Blasting Game
- My Worth It Rating: 3/5
What Is Cashman Blast?
So Shape Keeper is known for making cash games relevant to the times.
They see what’s trending and working before releasing a game that they think will pop off.
With Cashman Blast, we see the developers go to basics with a bubble blasting game.
In the game, they claim users can cash out for US dollars by playing through levels within.
Once you then have enough, apparently, you can cash out cash.
Now it’s this formula that is led to games like this becoming viral and almost being overnight successes in one way.
While not every game they release gets millions of players, I good chunk of them have ‘m’ signs next to them in the store.
It just shows that the developers know not only how to make a game but something that will bait users into downloading them.
I say bait because none of the games I have personally tried have shown little in terms of paying.
How Does Cashman Blast Work?
The main comparison I found with Cashman Blast is the gameplay similarities between them and another developer called Tuyoo games.
I found the setup from the cubes in the game and how it all worked to be quite similar.
Now moving back to this game, and what you have below is a small grid of coloured cubes.
When you tap on areas where there are multiple blocks of the same colour, it will remove them from the grid.
You will earn coins, and depending on what color you tap on. You will move closer to the objective of the level.
The aim is to remove the number of coloured blocks stated at the top of the screen.
Do this, and you will move to the next level while picking up virtual dollars on your way.
How To Make Money?
As with all Shape Keepers games, there are a few features thrown in there aside from the main game, where you can win money.
Firstly you have the cash that you can earn when you remove blocks from the grid.
But after levels, you can also spin this attractive-looking Lucky Spin.
You can earn from 500 coins to $5, but you must watch a video to proceed.
From my first spin, I picked up the main prize.
But I suspect the game gave it to me, rather than me being lucky and stumbling on it.
It is something I believe is worth bearing in mind.
Plenty of users get the impression that they are just getting lucky when it comes to earning.
But realistically, the game is just giving you these amounts to keep you around longer.
How Do They Pay?
In the Cashman Blast store, you will see the amounts of prizes left to be redeemed.
Now whether people can actually redeem them is another thing.
But what you can see is there is an option to convert your cash and coins into rewards.
Cash can be converted into PayPal, and coins can only be swapped for Amazon Vouchers.
However, let me say while that’s how it looks, it’s not likely any users will be able to redeem a reward.
Simply because the virtual money is worth nothing.
Decreasing Amounts Of Money
When I played money-making games in the past like this one, I would see the minimum threshold and think if I played long enough, I would get there eventually.
That’s how I used to think, and that was before I reviewed over 200+ games of the store.
Now what I found is that how they actually work is they rarely let you reach the threshold.
You have two types of games, and I will explain them now:
- Decreasing Amounts – The first type is games that slowly give you less the more you pay them to the point where you get $0.01 a time.
- Big Amounts – The other type of game is the one that lets you earn big amounts, sometimes into the thousands. They give you lots of cash each time. However, despite letting users cash out, they don’t process any payments.
Cashman Blast and the rest of Shape Keepers games fit into the first type.
They give you good amounts, to begin with, but as you play, you find that getting the money you got at the start is increasingly harder.
It’s a clever business model, as when users get to the $100 mark, they are so determined to cash it out that they continue to play the games for hours.
They don’t know that they are fighting a losing battle since the game will drag it out as much as possible.
Cashman Blast is a fresh and interesting game that was released in early March.
However, despite being new on the store and many users wondering if this opportunity will payout, a lot suggests they don’t.
As I said in the above section, many users reported getting money handed to them at the start.
The more they played, the more they noticed that the game was being more stingy with handing out money.
As I experienced, you’re likely going to get the $5 to start with and get to $50-$100 fairly quickly.
However, it’s only going to become more frustrating and tedious the more you play because once you get close to the threshold, you get cents instead.
I know these games inside out, as I have tried 13 of Shape Keepers games.
The aim of each one changes, however, how they work and how the tactics they use stay the same each time.
That’s why it’s best to stay from these games and stick to apps that payout like these.
