The new Candy Crush just dropped
And it’s all about making new Friends. Tap for more.
Candy Crush Friends Saga
Match 3 game with your friends
Go on, you know you want to. Like any sweet treat, a new Candy Crush game is best devoured with aplomb – a little of what you fancy does you good, right?
Well, the freshly unwrapped Candy Crush Friends Saga is here, and has all of the candy matching this series is famed for. But now you’ve got loads of ‘helper’ characters in the mix too – ranging from a pigtailed little girl to a Yeti with moves that Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air would be proud of.
They’re all beautifully animated, and they genuinely influence how you play. At the start of each level, you can choose which chum to help you. Each one has a special move at their disposal, triggered just when things are getting tough.
“You can either choose a friend that helps you to create special candies, or one of the more specialised friends that excel at destroying blockers,” says King level designer Jesper Staafjord. “Most players will find success in the game by switching between the different types of friends to deal with different challenges.”
