Candy Crush is a popular puzzle game where users clear levels by crushing candy. The game has become wildly popular due to its addictive nature. To play the game, players need to achieve a goal that is laid out at the beginning of a level by shifting individual pieces of candy to create rows of matching candy. Goals range from getting pieces of fruit to the bottom of the playing board to getting a certain number of points. The interface is extremely colorful, and really makes you feel like you are inside a candy wonderland of sorts. Levels progress in a very linear fashion, as you simply move up on a board one by one after beating a level. In game powerups are also offered, allowing users to come up with creative and powerful ways to clear the board they are playing and achieve high scores. The game offers hundreds upon hundreds of levels, so the breadth of content for users to play through is simply enormous. It is unlikely that the casual player will ever actually reach the end simply due to the volume of levels present. Difficulties between levels vary, although levels never feel unfair. After a certain number of losses, users must wait a certain amount of time before playing again unless they opt to pay for extra lives. Although it seems a little odd, it really does not get in the way of having fun. If you have not played Candy Crush yet, you should definitely at least give it a try to see what all the hype is about.
