Love the game but...
Love the game, however I hate that it doesn’t let u have the option to use your stuff (like fish,color ball) to try and beat the game. U only have the option to use it before u start the game. Can that be changed or updated? Its yours for the keeping, why not put it down below to use like the color changer hand swap or lollipop hammer? Also u hate when u have one move left and u can’t use ur candy wrapper or anything left on the game board. Whatever is left on the game board when the game ends should pop automatically just like it does with sugar crush when u pass a level. If we earn a prize it should pop at the end who knows that might help us to the next level. Well I just deleted this app because I keep pouring money into this game and I’m not getting rich u guys are. That spinning will is somehow preset to stop where u guys want it so that we will keep making purchases I get that but just to get to the next level??? Pshhhh boy bye no more $$$ from me. Good luck
I’ve only had this game for about a week. But even in this short period of time, I can spot a few features that I personally don’t like. Earlier today I completed a goal on a level but i still had like 15 moves left. There were two wrapped candies next to each other that I wanted to swap to get a better score, but instead of letting me do so, the game wasted all 15 of my moves on random matches that really weren’t that great and ended up separating the two wrapped candies so I didn’t get as big of a score as I wanted to. What I mean is you should let us use our last moves as we please when we “finish” the level. I understand that there’s probably a reason for this, but like I said, I’ve only had this for a week and haven’t explored as much as more experienced players do. What I also don’t understand is why we have to wait so long for only one life. Let’s say I was struggling on a level and used all my lives on it. No big deal. I’ll just wait a whole thirty minutes for the single life that will just be used to the exact same level that’ll make me have to wait another half hour just to wait another half our and have it repeat it until I complete the level. You can at least give us two lives or have us wait a shorter period of time for just one singular life?
I hate that I love it...
I read the previous review that had a love-hate relationship with this game, and I completely agree. It is incredibly addicting, but it would be more fun to play if the app designers gave in a little bit and gave people more for their money (1) increase the total number of gold bars that you can buy in your piggy bank (30? Seriously?) without raising the price. It would be nice if you also earned gold bars after you completed so many levels on your first try instead of just boosters. And yes on the daily spin “jackpot!” Why put it on there if you are never going to win? I also think you shouldn’t lose a move when you use a booster - if I’m down to my last move and I’ve got two color bottoms on the game board, I should be able to use up the boosters before I lose my moves to see if that helps clear the board. So small changes would go a long way. People would still spend money on the app. I think people would spend more money if we were getting more things for free occasionally. But it’s crack, so that’s why I rated it four stars😉
Candy Crush is fun... until you run out of power ups and gold bars. When that happens, you’ll get to levels that soak up multiple rounds of lives. If you don’t win, you cant get more power ups, if you cant get more power ups, you cant win. Of course you have the option of throwing money at the game but thats exactly what I look for in games. I get so defeated I reach for my wallet to beat a game for me. I’m sure every level is ‘beatable’ without power ups, but the harder ones are... well... unlikely. Sometimes levels have far too many colors for the available playing space, limiting your moves. Whenever you get to a spot where ‘no possible combinations’; that should NEVER happen. The game should NEVER give you a scenario where you cant even play. If it does, you have too many colors and/or obstacles in your level and you need to remake it. I get that it’s random, but sometimes its not even close to fair and they balance it out by giving you bonus’s whenever it feels like. I’m currently stuck on a level that has burned through multiple rounds of lives and multiple power ups. That is TOO DIFFICULT. My pet peeve in video games are unwinnable scenarios. The fact that this is ‘random’ makes that problem unavoidable, but on the harder levels, it all comes down to luck. Skill has no factor and that is unfair.
Still fun, but a little confusing
It’s a fun game, but it’s pretty inconsistent. You’ll be playing along easy peasy. You might cut it close sometimes, but somehow you skate by, then WHAM. You’re faced with an oddly far more difficult level that requires special power ups or crazy luck to make it past. One star lost for inconsistency in difficulty. Then... You’re constantly being compared to some random other players as if it matters that you beat them. It’s the most blatant and transparent BAIT I’ve ever seen in a game. Sadly, I bet a lot of people fall for it. It’s just silly and unnecessary. Do they actually expect you to feel satisfied by achieving slightly more than a total stranger who probably doesn’t exist. No... They’re just counting on you to take the bait and plunk a few dollars down to pass them. I won’t give this game a dime. Here’s a tip. If you get stuck and stop playing for a few days, when you come back they’ll give you a bunch of free power ups to get you through that tough level and then some, hoping you’ll get hooked. So, if you get stuck and lose all your lives on a hard level, just go back to fruit ninja or bejeweled for a few days. Then you’ll see what I mean. ; )
I want to start by saying I’ve been playing this game for a long time and I’m a huge fan. With that being said I’ve reached out several times to complain about the update that gave us the backpack. In my game there is no way to get my boosters out of the backpack. I can be stuck on a level for literally weeks with tons of boosters in there that could help me that I can’t use. Even timed boosters that I win will just stay in there. Once I win the level they will all come pouring out. Is this a gimmick by the developer to get the player to purchase boosters? If so this is really awful and not a great way to market or keep players. I have reloaded the game several times thinking it’s some kind of glitch but it just stays the same. The boosters that I win go into the backpack when I click on them to get them out it prompts me to to click on the purchase button when I do it wants me to purchase this booster that I already have. Again not fair. How can you expect anyone to beat a Nightmarishly Hard Level with no boosters? I’m disappointed and frustrated. I may have to stop playing until the issue can be resolved. I can’t really advance in levels anyway.
So I’ve been playing this game for a while. And today again, I got a thing that said oh I got five extra lives. I was still on full on five full lives so it doesn’t do anything. So then when you get down to one or two lives it says watch a video maybe to see if you can get an extra life. I think that if you’re going to get/win five lives that it should update to higher than five lives. Because otherwise I just won five lives are even wasted. And I agree with someone else who posted that the game will make moves for you when you’ve reached the goal. There have been times when I could have gotten higher scores also, with side by side candy bombs, but it splits them up. Or when the there are two wrapped candies next to each other, that could take out rows both vertically and horizontally, and they’re split. And if you don’t beat a level, and have less than 10 bars, you have to lose a life. System gives hints, but they are not always the best move. Today alone I wasted 40 bars to win levels. So now I’m back down to two or three lives, and will have to wait for more lives so I might be able to pass this level.
Very addictive game, can be frustrating
I really like the game most of the time. I have been playing for a couple months and it can be addictive. Many of the levels are fun and you do need some strategies. But there is a major flaw to the game, and that is sometimes you and your gameplay don’t matter in it one bit. You will win or lose the level regardless of what you do. I have had levels when I made 1 or 2 simple moves and everything seems to blowup and I completed it. I didn’t even really look at the level yet and have 40 moves left. Other levels, I have played for 5 days straight with no possibility of success and then you just have to wait for lives. I have literally played all 5 lives with only 1 move possible and get nowhere to beating it. Doesn’t matter your strategy or skill, just bad luck...but for days. That is annoying. The other day, I had a puzzle I tried 50+ times over a couple days. I tried boosters, etc. Then the next morning I woke up, first try lucky move after lucky move and beat the level with several moves left. Kind of annoying. The computer could literally play without you.
Ok, I remember first downloading this game 4 years ago as a way to kill some time when I worked as a home health aide while my patient would nap or sleep overnight. It wasn’t that easy, I even spent a few bucks on things to get past certain levels. After a while and a thousand levels, I deleted the app. That was 3 years ago. Fast forward to last week. I was sick with COVID and was going crazy having to quarantine and needed to kill time so after seeing a million commercials on cable I downloaded the app again. I got as far as level 317 before I deleted it again. At first it was fun, winning every level without running out of lives, barely losing any lives at all. Then the nightmarishly hard levels started showing and I figured I’d lose a lot of them, need to request lives from friends... when you can finish these levels with 20 moves to spare, it gets a little boring, honestly. Don’t get me wrong if I’m in an airport and need to kill a few hours, it would probably make time go by. Maybe it’s just me, but I like a challenge. Having a winning streak like the Harlem globetrotters just isn’t fun lol.
Dishonest algorithms & cheating
This game would be more fun if it wasn’t designed to frustrate you into spending money. The game chooses how many options for moves you actually get. It is not random, but obviously an algorithm designed to adapt to the player. I refuse to spend money on this game. When the program “wants” to try to get me to use my gold it will keep me from having enough valid moves to win, sometimes for days. Then finally it will allow me to win in just a few moves and move on. I’m not stupid, I get what the motives are. It’s not fun when it’s like this. The latest update won’t offer me ads anymore to get boosters, extra moves, or lives. Also, I just love how when I pick boosters I have been saving up to use before a level, they come up in a way that forces them to be wasted. For example, the ball that eliminates all of one color will be next to a color that there are only two of on the board and will do me no good. Or I have to waste a million moves before it will be a good time to use it. I watch your algorithm and I know you cheat. I use strategy to play and I always notice when I make a move that gets forfeited. For example, I will swap colors to get four in a row and watch the row disappear and get no striped candy. Just because the game makes it seem like a bunch of stuff happens around it doesn’t mean I won’t notice. Cheating. This is why I don’t spend money on your game and often delete it for years.
I want to start by saying I had stopped playing candy crush saga for about two years. It had become boring. I started playing again about 6 months ago. I like the new changes & updates to the game but developers...WHAT is the PURPOSE of the crowns???? One objective is to get boosters. The crowns offer NOTHING but confetti. POINTLESS!! Give us crowns WITH free boosters for completing so many levels on the first try! Additionally, TWICE I’ve come in 2nd place for the weekly race these past 2 weeks and didn’t get my prizes! The race ends without warning & a new race begins. But NO PRIZES! According to the race rules, the top 3 places get prizes! Additionally, why does the game take my black balls WITHOUT a stripe or candy bomb nearby?? That’s CHEATING!! Then the hard, harder, hardest levels come so close together, that there’s little opportunity to move ahead in the race once reaching the 2,000 levels. While the competition is ok, it seems that you’ve forgotten that SOME ADULTS play the game to relax & as a pass time. It should’ve cause frustration because you’re trying to force players to make booster purchases. We’re adults, not kids wanting to spend countless hours trying to get through one level of a game. Our lives consist of more than time on a game. So it would be greatly appreciated if you’d cut the crap and make the game fun again!!
Annoyed With Unnecessary Changes
Never in my 4 of playing this game have I ever felt the need to write a review for this game. I’m on level 5649; needless to say, I’ve been playing for years with a couple of breaks in between, and literally up until maybe the last year, I’ve been so annoyed with all the sudden changes & updates. You have taken away the booster meter, changed the booster/ moves wheel after failing a level to worthless options, altered the appearance of some candy blockers for who knows what reason, and much more. Since I’m obviously not at the most current level, I have never had the “need” to wait for any updates because I didn’t have any issues with the app nor ran out of weekly levels to play with. However I have recently found myself waiting for ANY update that the app offers just for the hope that the makers will some day stop messing with the app so much and just allow its users to actually have fun and stop making unnecessary changes. It may be rare but I can proudly say that I have never spent any money on this app. I enjoy this game so much, yet have never been compelled to buy any boosters because the game itself used to offer so many opportunities to gain boosters to pass the levels. But recently I have made the choice to simply stop playing rather than giving my money away to an unstable game that promises nothing in return.
HUGE RISE OF IN-GAME PURCHASE PRICE IS RIDICULOUS!
I’m a huge fan of Candy Crush. It’s my number 1, go-to, fun app. First, I should say, I do not indulge in most “in app” purchases for boosters or “lives”. If I cannot win a level, I will continue to play with what I’ve got. It’s just not satisfying to advance in a game solely from advantages I’ve purchased versus my own effort. That said, occasionally, I WILL treat myself to cashing out the “piggy bank” of gold bars in Candy Crush so I can buy more “lives”. The bank has always held 60 bars...$2.99 to cash out. That amount alone (assuming I had zero bars reserved to supplement this amount) was pretty reasonable considering I could purchase 5 “lives” for 12 bars. It really wasn’t a bad deal...not GREAT, but worth the occasional indulgence. A little over a month ago (possibly closer to 2 months), without a word, the “piggy bank” shrank down to 30 bars...cash out price STILL $2.99!!!! THEY LITERALLY DOUBLED THE PRICE OF THIS IN APP PURCHASE OUT OF NOWHERE! No gradual shift, straight up DOUBLED THE PRICE!! Are there bigger problems in the world than my Candy Crush budget frustrations? TOTALLY! But how shady is it to gouge a price like that OUT OF NOWHERE for a product I’m pretty loyal to and for which I’m reasonably reliable to provide some income? NO WAY, NO HOW, WILL I SPEND ANOTHER PENNY ON THIS APP UNDER THESE NEW CIRCUMSTANCES.
Seriously CC you increase how much gold coins cost?? You reduce the number of people who win contest and reduce the prizes, why? Why are the levels harder? Because you have increased the cost of gold coins and reduced the prizes, that tells me it’s all about the money and you have no respect or appreciation for your loyal users!! There are too many game options for you to risk losing your loyal users! Why would you do that to us?? :-( Done!! I love playing in the contest, that is what makes me keep playing versus switching to another game, unfortunately CC has made changes to their contest! Now only the person who comes in first wins a prize, oh and the prizes are a joke!! Really CC, these contest last 4 days and it takes a lot of effort and time just to place in the top 5 but you are only going to give 1st place a prize and even that prize is cheap!! How about instead of spending money on commercials you put that money into more winners and bigger rewards!! Other games make it worth your time to play them, on some of the bigger games even 20th place gets a reward but not on CC! Don’t waste your time playing, the rewards aren’t worth it! I for one am taking my money and playing other games that make it worth my time!! :-( VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS GAME!!
