Candy Crush is a matching-puzzle game in which you try to match groups of three or more identical candies of the same hue. After each successful horizontal or vertical match is formed, a piece of candy vanishes, prompting candy from all around it to fall into the vacant spots. This can lead to a chain reaction that rewards players with additional points and power-ups. Additionally, the game throws in challenges for players, such as coating candy in jelly, which must be removed before the candy may be matched. There are more than 100 levels, each with a separate set of objectives and maps, in five different game modes, so there's never a dull moment. The game is simple to pick up and play, but it takes a lot of practice to become an expert. To compete against other players, players can either take on the tale on their own or connect to Facebook and compete against each other to determine who has the best skills. In general, Candy Crush is suitable for and can be played by children under five years old; however, they may have trouble moving some of the game's more tough stages.
How to play
If you don't make a move for a few seconds in a Jelly Level, a set of candies will flash on the board, showing you an available activity. If you are playing a Time Level, don't sweat strategy so much and make as many matches as you find them. Always look for opportunities to create special candies by matching 4 or 5 candies of the same color. When playing a Jelly Level, try to focus on eliminating the jelly blocks closest to the edges of the board first. If you're stuck on a level, try activating a booster. You can activate one before a story starts to put special candies on the board to give yourself an advantage or activate one during a level (tap one in the top-left corner) to do something you wouldn't usually be allowed to. It's possible to mix special candies to achieve far more powerful effects in challenging levels. In order to master Candy Crush, you need to know what each combo does so that you can strategically put your unique sweets and unleash huge combos.
