Candy Crush Saga is one of the most memorable games on the app store – and it was one of the first games to blow up! Of course, people are still playing it now so we thought it would be worth giving you our opinions on it!


Gameplay

The gameplay is a classic!

So, most people know how Candy Crush Saga goes, but in case you don’t, it’s a match-3 game that includes candy. Match 3 of the same candies together to score points with special candies to help you along your way. If you see a striped candy, match-3 to clear a line, a packaged candy will clear 3 rows down and across, and a dotted candy will eliminate any of the same candies on the board.

The first few levels are offensively easy, you’d have to be pretty young to not be able to complete them. As time goes by, there are more things to remember when playing like matching a certain amount of candies or doing it within a time limit.

Graphics

The graphics are fun to look at!

The graphics for Candy Crush Saga is probably one of my favorite part of the game as they’re colorful, cartoon-like, don’t crash or lag. They’re perfect for a match-3 game. I feel that match-3 games can sometimes be made lazily, and the graphics suffer because of it. But it’s quite obvious why Candy Crush Saga has had lots of success.

Music & Sounds

The music and sounds involved in Candy Crush Saga are upbeat, fun, but can become annoying. For example, I found it super irritating how there was a man’s voice who said “sweet” and “tasty” pretty much every time I would make a match. Thankfully, there is an option to turn it off – I couldn’t deal with it.

Controls

The controls consist of dragging the candies!

Like any match-3 game, the controls consist of dragging the icons to match them. There are no other controls apart from that, which is why this game is so fun to play while watching TV as you don’t have to focus solely on the gameplay. There are also buttons for power-ups at the bottom of the screen to help you through the level.

The Verdict

What did you think of Candy Crush Saga?

Candy Crush is an absolute classic, and we’ve all played it at least once. It’s an addicting game, but it’s also one of those games where it gets to the point where you can’t continue unless you make in-app purchases. I’m not really a fan of games like that, but the concept is brilliant and I totally understand why the world is still going crazy for it even today.
