Candy Crush Saga Android Review
Casual games such as match-three games are probably the most downloaded games in the Google Play Store. Because of the popularity of Bejeweled, thousands of match-three games have been developed and are now available in the Google Play Store for free. At first glance, Candy Crush Saga seems like another match-three game that is no different from the thousands of Bejeweled knock-offs.
You are probably thinking that Candy Crush Saga simply replaced the gems of Bejeweled with candies. However, Candy Crush is not simply a copy of Bejeweled. It has added several new features that make it different from the other Bejeweled knock-offs in the Google Play Store. Read this short Candy Crush Saga Android review to learn why you should get this game for your Android device.
A Short Review
Candy Crush Saga, when broken down to its basic elements, follows the traditional rules of match-three games. However, it was able to surpass the thousands of Bejeweled imitators by adding missions to each level and allowing you to create “Super Candies” by combining Special Candies (candies created by matching 4 or more normal candies). Super Candies are able to “crush” dozens of candies in a single move.
Some levels have jelly cubes that you can only remove by crushing the candies next to them, while others have nuts that you need to drop to the bottom of the screen by crushing the candies below them. However, the number of moves that you can make in each level is limited, so you’ll have to choose your moves carefully. If you run out of moves without completing the target score or mission of a level, it is game over. If you fail to complete the level, you lose a life. You can only have a maximum of 5 lives in the game. If you run out of lives, you need to wait for 2.5 hours (1 life per 30 minutes) for your lives to regenerate.
You can get more moves or crush more candies by purchasing Boosters (power ups) at the in-app store. While other games allow you to purchase power ups with in-game currency, the Boosters in Candy Crush Saga can only be purchased with real money. Extra lives can also be purchased at the in-app store, but you can request your Facebook friends for extra lives to get lives for free.
The levels in Candy Crush Saga become more and more difficult the more you advance. You will find yourself stuck and playing the same level multiple times. Soon, you will find yourself wishing that you had more lives and/or that you can buy boosters without spending real money. However, even with these limitations, Candy Crush Saga is a lot of fun to play. You won’t get bored playing the same level over and over again because the game is so much fun. If you like match-three games and you are looking for a challenging match-three game that will take more than several hours to complete, then download Candy Crush Saga for your Android device.
Cheats and Tips
If you have decided to get Candy Crush Saga for your Android device, check out these cheats and tips so that you will be able to complete the toughest levels more easily.
Learn How to Create Special Candies and Super Candies
Special Candies and Super Candies allow you to crush more candies in a one move. You need to learn how to create them in order to complete the game’s toughest levels. To form the special Striped Candy, match four normal candies in a row. To form the special Wrapped Candy, match five normal candies in a cross, L, or T shape. To form the special Freckle Candy, match 5 normal candies in a row. Don’t forget that you can also create Super Candies by combining the Special Candies.
Try the Infinite Lives Cheat
Instead of waiting for 2.5 hours for your 5 lives to regenerate, try the popular Infinite Lives cheat. To get another 5 lives, all you need to do is to change the date setting of your Android device to the next day. This will cause the game to think that a day has already passed, so you will have 5 lives the next time you load Candy Crush Saga. The side effect of this cheat is that your life timer in the game will have several thousand hours when you set the date back to the current date. To fix this, simply uninstall and reinstall the game. Explore THIS site for more cheats and tips.
