Is there anyone out there that still doesn’t know what Candy Crush Saga is...?
Peer over someone’s shoulder on the train or bus and you might find that they’re busily swapping candies in one of the most downloaded games ever made.
But what you don’t see out in the wild is that it’s just as good for when you’re lounging on the sofa in the evening: it’s the kind of game that treads the fine line between relaxation and making you stop to think about your next move.
In its purest form, Candy Crush Saga is all about the satisfaction of spotting patterns. With a swipe, you swap colourful confectionery on a large grid to create lines of three or more. And it feels great.
Within easier levels, you can feel pretty zen as you make matches with ease. But suddenly you find yourself running out of moves or failing to meet your score target: time to slow down and think a little harder about your next move.
It’s this clever control of difficulty that has kept millions playing Candy Crush Saga every day – some ever since its App Store launch way back in November 2012.
If you’ve played before but not picked it up in months, maybe even years, you’ll return to a game that’s been utterly transformed – developer King adds new features, limited-time in-game events and shiny new audiovisual effects all the time.
So whether you’re new to Candy Crush Saga or fancy a sweet return to this App Store colossus, it’s always a good time to fire it up. It’ll make that commute or evening in a little bit sweeter.
