Candy Crush Saga
One of the top games currently Itunes and Play Store would be Candy Crush Saga. The game concept of Candy Crush Saga is similar to Bejeweled where you need to match tiles (candies) of the same colors to make them disappear.
If you just want to see the download link, scroll down at the bottom of the post.
Although several games have been created with the same concept, what makes Candy Crush Saga better and why does it top the charts? I believe it has something to do with the concept of lives, social aspect and different challenges that it has.
- Lives – You can only have 5 hearts at any given time. If you don’t finish a level, you lose a heart . You cannot play if you don’t have a heart. Hearts replenishes through time or if a friend gives you one.
- Social Aspect – You can connect to Facebook to see your friend’s progress in Candy Crush Saga. You can also use it to give/receive hearts and tickets. Tickets are used to unlock the later levels.
- Challenges – There are many challenges such as clear all the jellies, score X in Y seconds, bring all ingredients down or just reach the required score to advance.
Apart from that, it also brings us new combinations which can generally help you or make you want to throw away your phone. This will be a mini Candy Crush Saga guide for you to understand better on how to play the game.
