The game that put match-3 on the map, Candy Crush Saga has been an App Store staple since its launch in November 2012. For good reason! This megahit expertly treads the fine line between sugary-sweet charm and challenging puzzle-solving.

How it plays: You know the drill: Clear the board by swapping colorful confections. The more you match with each move, the more spectacular the outcome. Line up five in a row to form a grid-wrecking color bomb—or combine power-ups for even tastier explosions!

Need a hand making matches? Use those power-ups!

Why we love it: It’s the gift that keeps on giving. There are now literally thousands of levels to puzzle through, plus awesome modes like the speed-focused Episode Race. And though later levels are diabolically difficult—with limited moves and high-score targets—you always feel like you’re just a few moves away from glory.

Don’t miss: Can’t pass a particularly sticky puzzle? Remember three tips: Match at the bottom of the screen to maximize combo opportunities, save power-ups till you really need them, and avoid the “suggested move” most of the time (it’s just a suggestion, after all!).

Meet the creator: Founded in 2003, King crafted hundreds of browser games before landing on Candy Crush. The studio’s match-3 masters are responsible for some of the App Store’s biggest franchises, including Bubble Witch and Farm Heroes.
