Candy Crush Saga Review

Candy Crush Saga Review

If you have Facebook, you’ve heard about Candy Crush Saga. I know I had seen probably 50+ game requests or “game shares” before I took a chance on it. However, it took my maybe five minutes to get hooked.

Gameplay

If you are “old” enough to remember Tetris, then this game will be a addicting. Even if you don’t know about Tetris, this game will still be like a drug you have to have. The basic premise of the game is to line up similar colored candies (minimum of three) and they will disappear. At this point, the rest of the candies will fall and could help you complete even more matches. If you manage to match four or more of the same color candies, you will be rewarded with extra power-ups. Of course, it is pretty much impossible to beat Candy Crush Saga as the stages are supposedly unlimited. However, if you are up to the challenge, try to see how far “unlimited” really goes.

Each level has an objective that you have to beat in order to progress on. You might have to remove jelly from the candies or you may even have to make sure only certain candies line the bottom of the screen. Of course, you have all the time in the world to do this … just not unlimited moves. And, to make things even more interesting, you don’t have to play against yourself. Candy Crush Saga can be connected to your Facebook and you and your friends can play against each other.

Graphics / Sounds

The graphics are absolutely perfect. Some games tend to skimp on making sure that every detail in meticulously covered; not so with Candy Crush Saga. The candies are extremely bright, sharp and crisp (near about makes you want to eat some candy).

The sounds are very well matched to you what you would expect. The music is engaging, similar to Tetris and will have you speeding up (without even realizing it). During my gameplay, I did not find any music overly annoying … repetitive to the point I wanted to turn the game off.

Overview

Overall, Candy Crush Saga is extremely addictive. It would be easy to catch yourself in a four hour marathon filled with nothing but candy. Every time that you beat another level, you’ll say … “Just one more level, then I’ll stop” … you just never stop. Taking it a step further, you’ll find yourself constantly trying to best your friends on Facebook, just for the bragging rights. If there is one thing I could say to sum up Candy Crush Saga, it would be this…

This game is highly addictive, mind-boggling and extremely entertaining. I wish I would have found this game sooner.
