Candy Crush Saga for Negative User Reviews

Goodbye candy crushGames come and go but this one has stayed because it’s graphics are beautiful, it’s variety on each level is new and it’s a fun and easy game to play….however, I’m at level 236 and for the life of me I have tried every which way to pass but after 20 try’s there doesn’t seem to be ANY combinations of moves to pass UNLESS you pay money which I haven’t done but I’m thinking it’s the only way to pass this level. I feel sad as I write this review because I’m going to have to delete this game that has seen the test of time over the last 10 years simply because I’m being manipulated into coughing up money to continue playing. King…get it into your thick head that there are copies of candy crush and they are pretty much the same so your upset fans will just move across to your competition. Candy crush has just become a version of the pokies manipulating addictive personality’s into spending money they don’t have on useless ‘extra moves’ or ‘additional lives’. Sad…...Version: 1.236.0.3

Great game but with problemsI love this game so much, but my rating is 2 stars for a lot of reasons. Reason 1: This game wants to take your money. The normal levels can be pretty hard because of that reason. At least it’s not like soda crush where it’s just made to be a money trap. This is just a thing for king games in general. Reason 2: Inappropriate ads. This and reason 3 are the reasons why my review is 2 stars and why this game is not for children. Sometimes, the ads that play are pornographic and disgusting. You should be aware that this is for kids too. This game is disguised as a children’s game. Reason 3: It’s woke. This game involves politics with pride events. You should remove anything propaganda related from your games for good. This is not the only game that has pride stuff. Soda crush, jelly crush, and farm heroes all pride events in their games. Reason 4: Portrait mode only. You can no longer play in landscape mode. Bring back landscape mode please. Not everyone plays on a phone. Sorry for all of those who play this game on a tablet. It’s harder to hold because if you’re charging it, the charger is in your way. I guess king is now expecting everyone to play on a mobile phone now:( Edit: The new sound effects are also not a good change. I always hated the soda crush “divine” sound that was in jelly and friends saga. And now it’s in this game too!? It is so annoying and drives me nuts. And the other sounds don’t sound like candy, they sound like bubbles.Version: 1.263.0.1

If you enjoy feeling cheated, this game is for you.All the negative reviews that you see are true. They make no effort whatsoever trying to hide their deception, their cheating and their greed. Once you get to a certain point, you will not move on until they want you to. They will make it impossible without using boosters that you can pay for or using gold bars for extra moves. They know how long you’ll put up with it and you won’t be able to make a wrong move and you’ll beat a level you’ve been stuck on for weeks without even trying. It’s all an algorithm to extract as much money as possible from you. There will be times that you’ll use a color bomb candy and it won’t clear all the candies that are the color you chose to clear. The striped candy used to be oriented the way that you completed the 4 candy combo, now it’s whatever way they see fit (usually it’ll go the way you don’t want it to go). If you use boosters before the round starts, they will often times make it so that you must use it right away and it will do little to nothing to help you out, making it a complete waste. I can go on for days about the garbage baked into this game to make it absolutely infuriating. Do yourself a favor and stay far away, this game is 100% rigged. The reviews are true..Version: 1.249.0.1

Normally 5 stars, now 2I love this game, have been playing it forever and now I am on leven 9140. I play this game because it’s relaxing. Lately not so much. This is why: 1. The game has changed to only portrait mode. Why?? I like playing it on my iPad in landscape. I can no longer do this. I absolutely hate it. Please bring back landscape mode. 2. There are hardly any ‘give away’ levels left. I always liked it that you have a couple of easy (give away) levels and then a difficult one, then maybe another easy, then a really difficult one, and so on. EVERY level is now hard. I consider myself a good player (I passed level 9000 after all) but I am now quite often stuck on one level for a long time which makes it boring and well, not relaxing. Now if this would happen now and then, that’s fine, but it happens all the time. Just mèh. 3. What’s the deal with this weekly race? It’s a fun way to get boosters but why am I competing against people who are on level 4000? Clearly it was much easier then so, hmmmm, not really an even race. I doubt that anyone reads this, or that I will get a reaction from the makers, but you never know. If anything can come out of this, let it be that landscape mode is brought back..Version: 1.244.0.1

False advertisingFirst I would like to say that initially when I downloaded this game it was great. Slowly it got harder not because I was at a higher level but because they wanted you to spend money. They made it almost impossible for you to continue without spending money. That being said, all of the ads and all the little clips of the game I saw, whether in the App Store or an ad some where, I have never seen those scenarios in the actual game. I downloaded the game because I love the things that I saw on those ads. This is not the only game/app that has false videos or ads, making it look way better than it actually is. I played this game FOR MONTHS,PROBABLY A YEAR, trying to get to a level that looked similar or even close to the advertising but nothing even close! Does it make “the powers that be” feel good about about themselves? Having to con/falsely advertise your product to get people to download? It comes off as many things, mainly that you don’t trust or believe in your products enough to show us the real thing, actual real game scenarios. I rarely leave negative reviews but like I said it’s happening all over but this app is one of the worst..Version: 1.219.0.6

Easy to lose interest in.This is going to be a mostly critical review, because there’s really not much I enjoy about it at this point. It’s a game to play when I’m bored, an app to open for the daily gift. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve played for a few days consecutively then neglected the game entirely for something else. There’s just not enough in the game to keep someone interested when you get into the thousands territory of levels. There needs to be more events and more chances to win in events, because it’s ridiculous to insist that you have to get sugar stars 10x and whatnot just to win a 1 hour booster. The amount of things that pop up when you open the app and have to vigorously tap through is annoying. Getting rid of the spin to win when you lose a game was a mistake, obviously a money ploy. Another thing is the beanstalk. You lose all your winnings to see that you can try again in another 24 hours which isn’t the case, you’ll get another chance in a week or two. I’m aware of how nitpicky parts of this review will seem, I’m very bored and I like to complain, hopefully this is all taken on board. One thing I do currently like about the game is booster bot, I don’t think it’s insanely generous to compensate for the things I’ve complained about but it’s a consistent positive thing nonetheless, maybe that’ll stop a few more children from screaming at their parents to buy them stuff on this game..Version: 1.186.0.3

KathieI totally agree with Goldenmonkey24 about the latest change King have made to CandyCrush Saga. I too have spent a lot of money to keep getting through the latest levels and made a big effort to collect boosters to help me along. Then you change them to timed ones which are useless to me. I put up with baby playing morn8ng and night to get the few that I can save for when I need them. Then you take away my ability to restart a game to give me a better starting position so I can get through it. Not fair to take away a booster and a life just because I want to reset it. Now I am about to delete the game and never play again. I’ve wasted enough money and time. It’s not fun anymore. It seems the better I get at it you make it deliberately harder and harder to make me spend more money..Version: 1.166.0.4

Feel like I’m being scammed.I used to play this a few years ago and it felt like a fun puzzle game. There were tough levels but you felt like you had a chance with a bit of the persistence and learned the mechanics of the level. However I’ve just started playing again and it’s changed to clearly be a money making machine. Some levels are so ridiculously impossible unless you spent money on boosters or gold bars, or just keep playing 100 times when it’ll randomly just let you past even though you did nothing different. In between each level you can get up to 5 different pop-ups trying to get you to spend money. So I’ve deleted the app. Sure i understand that people may want to spend some money on the game, I used to, and it’s right that the devs make some money, but the new format is so obviously designed to squeeze money out of people and I’m not playing that..Version: 1.250.0.2

Very disappointed!!Seriously CC you increase how much gold coins cost?? You reduce the number of people who win contest and reduce the prizes, why? Why are the levels harder? Because you have increased the cost of gold coins and reduced the prizes, that tells me it’s all about the money and you have no respect or appreciation for your loyal users!! There are too many game options for you to risk losing your loyal users! Why would you do that to us?? :-( Done!! I love playing in the contest, that is what makes me keep playing versus switching to another game, unfortunately CC has made changes to their contest! Now only the person who comes in first wins a prize, oh and the prizes are a joke!! Really CC, these contest last 4 days and it takes a lot of effort and time just to place in the top 5 but you are only going to give 1st place a prize and even that prize is cheap!! How about instead of spending money on commercials you put that money into more winners and bigger rewards!! Other games make it worth your time to play them, on some of the bigger games even 20th place gets a reward but not on CC! Don’t waste your time playing, the rewards aren’t worth it! I for one am taking my money and playing other games that make it worth my time!! :-( VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS GAME!!.Version: 1.134.1

Great game but consider some changesI downloaded this game a few days ago after having off and on (deleting and redownloading. I noticed once u get pass the first level which is just a tutorial the difficulty levels sky rocketed fast and I was struggling getting past levels at level 10. It’s so frustrating when your confident in your ability to pass the level you’ve been struggling on and the game gives u bad switches and the actual game has to pause u to shuffle your board for below average switches and you end up having to use your moves on a switch that is not benefitting you in the level and usually end up dying. I think this happens more than you guys at your headquarters are aware for me it’s like very other level and it’s frustrating when u have two lives left and have to waste one because the game gives u bad switches. I think I would enjoy the game more if I didn’t have the stress of trying to preserve my lives. I definitely think that more lives for example 10 lives would be much better but I would really love if we could have unlimited lives to complete reduce that stress..Version: 1.240.0.2

Annoyed With Unnecessary ChangesNever in my 4 of playing this game have I ever felt the need to write a review for this game. I’m on level 5649; needless to say, I’ve been playing for years with a couple of breaks in between, and literally up until maybe the last year, I’ve been so annoyed with all the sudden changes & updates. You have taken away the booster meter, changed the booster/ moves wheel after failing a level to worthless options, altered the appearance of some candy blockers for who knows what reason, and much more. Since I’m obviously not at the most current level, I have never had the “need” to wait for any updates because I didn’t have any issues with the app nor ran out of weekly levels to play with. However I have recently found myself waiting for ANY update that the app offers just for the hope that the makers will some day stop messing with the app so much and just allow its users to actually have fun and stop making unnecessary changes. It may be rare but I can proudly say that I have never spent any money on this app. I enjoy this game so much, yet have never been compelled to buy any boosters because the game itself used to offer so many opportunities to gain boosters to pass the levels. But recently I have made the choice to simply stop playing rather than giving my money away to an unstable game that promises nothing in return..Version: 1.180.0.1

Fun game but need an update to fix crashing issueLately App has become buggy and often crashes every 30 to 40 minutes causing you to lose streak's! Other than that still enjoying after 10 years playing! Seems like it would be an easy fix..Version: 1.225.0.1

Not what it used to beCandy Crush Saga once had the title of the most downloaded and played game on mobile. Now it is a shadow of its former self. When you open the game, it can take anywhere between 4 to 10 clicks to get past all the “Fantastic Deals” and “Special Offers” they come up that are the exact same. Constant challenges to beat your “friends” that now cannot be skipped. And the strongest “pay to win” feeling and difficulties on any mobile game I have ever played. You can be stuck on a level for 2-3 weeks because you cannot pass within the moves allocated forcing you to pay for more. Sorry but I am deleting the app. What was once enjoyable, now is a frustrating, embarrassing, anger-inducing, money grab fest..Version: 1.250.0.2

Not a happy crusher!***update*** Another star lost: now not able to get any boosters and even the bonus moves wheel has gone, the game just became impossible. I’m on level 5883 so have dedicated some time to the cause. Since the last update I see you're trying to take advantage of your loyal players! It used to be 69p to refill lives now for some reason you've introduced gold bars of which you need 12. this is a bit naughty on your part as for 69p I can only buy 10 bars, what's that all about??? So now I'd have to pay 2.99 for 50 bars. I know this works out the same price, but I'd happily spend 69p but I won't be spending 2.99 to refill my lives. I don't like to feel like I'm being taken advantage of, there's no need for this change other than money making on your part!!!!.Version: 1.183.0.3

Garbage gameIf you want to keep your sanity, do not download this game. This game is the literal definition of pay to win. The game gives you garbage moves and makes it almost impossible to beat levels without using power ups. If you’re willing to spend money getting more lives, and more power ups you will succeed and find the game fun. However if you’re like the average player that doesn't want spend money on a free game you will become unbelievably frustrated with how bad this game really is..Version: 1.186.0.3

What happened to Candy Crush?I was reluctant to write a review because I literally have been playing this game every single day for more than five years now. The game is relaxing to me. Recently though over the past year, I’ve noticed a change in the algorithm. A change that suggests that the developers want you to lose way more than earning a win on each level. At this point is so obvious. Today I clearly won a level(4335), I was down to the last bubble to pop with no moves left, but the board still had moves left. And at the very end of the board completing itself, there lined three green candies perfectly on the last bubble. You want to guess what happened next? I LOST, yes I lost the level with the three candies sitting there staring me right in the face. My mouth dropped so far, I couldn’t believe it. I wish I could post the screenshot of it here. The game is terrible now with blatant cheat codes in the algorithm. I’m highly disappointed in a game that should be touted as one of the greatest casual gaming apps of all time. But it looks that greed has turned into the primary motivation for this company. Just sad PS Can there be a way to favorite a level please? There are levels that I enjoy playing and want to go back to but can never find them..Version: 1.221.0.4

Latest update made levels disappearAs a loyal game player of candy crush for many years now I have enjoyed many hours of playing and enjoyed every new twist an update has brought to the game. But the most previous update once I had downloaded it I went in to candy crush to play and discovered that I was no longer level 1078 like I was only minutes prior but pushed down to level 544. I am very upset about this inconvenience and although not connected to a Facebook as the game should automatically be kept within the app. I would appreciate it a lot if the game developers or whoever has the power could get into contact and help me fix this situation weather I be given my levels back on the Facebook version so I can transfer it back to my app on my phone or if the levels can be restored on my phone. Thank you..Version: 1.119.1

Used to Love this game …Why now, do we have to get out of 12 - 15 popup windows just to play the friggen game? Why are we now ‘forced to play ‘Candy Royal’ with no opt out button? I have played this game daily for over a decade, sometimes choosing to spend real $$, but now all I get is frustrated with not being able to go straight to the game. Greed ruined a perfectly good relaxation game..Version: 1.267.0.2

Very addictive game, can be frustratingI really like the game most of the time. I have been playing for a couple months and it can be addictive. Many of the levels are fun and you do need some strategies. But there is a major flaw to the game, and that is sometimes you and your gameplay don’t matter in it one bit. You will win or lose the level regardless of what you do. I have had levels when I made 1 or 2 simple moves and everything seems to blowup and I completed it. I didn’t even really look at the level yet and have 40 moves left. Other levels, I have played for 5 days straight with no possibility of success and then you just have to wait for lives. I have literally played all 5 lives with only 1 move possible and get nowhere to beating it. Doesn’t matter your strategy or skill, just bad luck...but for days. That is annoying. The other day, I had a puzzle I tried 50+ times over a couple days. I tried boosters, etc. Then the next morning I woke up, first try lucky move after lucky move and beat the level with several moves left. Kind of annoying. The computer could literally play without you..Version: 1.177.1.3

Boring messA boring mess of a game made not be fun but addicting..Version: 1.140.0

DO NOT DOWNLOAD 🤬😡I wanted to get this game when I did I was happy…UNTILL NOW all the makers of this game want is money they make you loose the game Im on lev 1987 no matter how hard I try to win I cant I loose every time and if I leave for let’s say 2 days you win 5 times in a row I asked my mum not even she can to it and shes amazing at it they MAKE you bye stuff from the shop and the price is ridiculous so when I bought my OWN CREDIT CARD and bought something from the shop then I win 5 in a row I found this out way before I made it to that level these selfish money hogs need to get it in there heads that there being selfish and greedy don’t bye this game unless you want to spend a fortune of money greedy hogs if I could I give it 0 stars hon and today my level reset to lev 1 so get that fixed deleting the game so should you hopefully this game will be taken down from the App Store i don’t normally complain about games but this is just to far candy crush hope your happy with yourself you selfish money hoarders #delete this game u should be ashamed of yourselfs.Version: 1.232.2.1

It was fun for awhileI quit playing this game for years. Now I remember why. I win boosters for getting through a round and have 1 hour. These boosters always come when I have one life left, so I used my coins to buy more lives. Then the boosters are gone. Wrote to support repeatedly and kept getting the same message. Go to the forums. The forums complain of similar problems including your lack of support. I get that you want people to buy coins or boosters. I’m not going to do that. It seems like all of the games on Facebook are about making a buck at the expense of their players. I’m stuck on a level right now where I can’t go further unless I have boosters which I’m not going to buy. It’s much easier to move on and find another game to play. Four hard levels in a row. Really? So if you had boosters you have to use them to advance. You get stuck somewhere and it gets boring when you know you’re going to get the oops message. You need to correct something because frankly I’m ready to move on and forget playing this. I’m also looking to see if they are King games because you get people into it with no way to win after awhile. Thoroughly disappointed..Version: 1.204.0.2

IPhone compatibility is laughableApple made the “Home” button redundant with the introduction of the iPhone X, yet the developers of “Candy Crush” are yet to adapt to the “swipe” functionality of the newer model iPhones. While forcing the user to swipe multiple times to exit may keep them in the game fractionally longer, it guarantees that they don’t use it for some time afterwards. Stop adding extra “bonuses” and focus on compatibility..Version: 1.166.0.4

Double chargesI have noticed that if I purchase a 13.99 package it always charges me a 27.99 on top of it and I never purchased it. I have to call apple every time..Version: 1.145.0

🤮🤬 worst game everThis game has hit rock bottom. Strictly money grab. They need to bring back old version where you collected candies.🤮🤮.Version: 1.176.0.2

Ads ughNow they stick 2 ads in 1 and grey out the x so you can’t cancel. Shame.Version: 1.259.0.1

Playable then sometimes it isn’tI find you go so far then you come across a level you get completely stuck you can’t go forward you can’t go back.... you’re thinking to yourself do I buy a booster pack to get me through this level it’s either yes or no if you don’t buy it you’re stuck completely and you uninstall it because you don’t wanna spend any money.... and a week later you download the game again and start playing and get through that level you was completely stuck on and you think to yourself patience! The moral of the story is the game can be a complete pain in the backside because it feels like you need to buy booster packs to move forward when you get completely stuck on that level fine after a week you get back on and you get through it So frustrating and addictive.. to this day I haven’t spent any money still completely frustrating playing also addictive.Version: 1.122.0

Pop ups are really annoyingI enjoy a good game but coming back to this has gotten me annoyed. The really hard levels you can be stuck on them for days even weeks which is off putting which is there way to force you to buy gold. The constant pop ups to buy things again seriously I don’t need it on everything I just want to play not X of everything each time I fail a level and have to repeat it. It’s like a nagging child and doesn’t make for a enjoyable experience. If I want to buy extras I will I don’t need constant adverts for it. Also you get no infinite time be nice on the daily login you can get some free time to play for 15 mins or 30mins as most games are seconds long so you play for what 2 mins at best progressing nowhere..Version: 1.239.0.5

Love the Game but customer support appallingI have had candy crush installed for years and I’ve loved it, recently however I’ve been playing the game and the game crashes and takes me back to my phone screen. It doesn’t happen with any other games and I’ve checked that I always have apps updated. The frustrating part about this is it always seems to crash when I’ve used power ups or gold and then I’ve just lost them. It’s made me not want to play anymore. I then originally went through the king creator website and clicked on the contact us option filling out information of my details and the problem. Then I received a reply that looked like a automated message saying I can go on king website and check FAQ or join the community with others players. I then replied to this email stating that the website would not be able to help me and can I have a person reply properly, then I received a reply but the exact same message so I tired to email back again and again got the same email sent to me. This is appalling customer service and no customer deserves to be treated this way. I thought I would put this in a review and see if then anyone would try and help me with my issue..Version: 1.240.0.2

Several things need to be fixed urgentlySeveral points here that need to be addressed bc currently the game is too annoying to play. 1- I can’t put into words how much I don’t care about the candy royale. Stop. Putting. Me. In. The. Candy. Royale. Didn’t care yesterday, don’t care today, and won’t care tomorrow. 2- The amount of pop ups is absolutely insane! It has seriously gotten WAY out of control! Sometimes they glitch out and there’s pop ups on top of pop ups. There’s so many side quests, events, and other crap that I can’t possibly keep track of them all and by the time I’ve clicked out of 10 or more of them I’m not in the mood to play the game anymore. 3- The flashing around the blocks that need to be broken should be eliminated, it’s VERY obnoxious. I do not need to be told what needs done to win the level. Figuring it out for ourselves is LITERALLY the whole point of the game!!! In spite of these rants, I really do love this game! I’ve been playing it for over 10 years, it’s iconic and just needs to be put back on the right path. Go back to what made people love it in the first place. It’s a match 3 game, it doesn’t need to be more complicated than that..Version: 1.260.1.1

Candy Crush occurring problemsI have been getting frequent problems well playing this game the last couple of months. When I go to daily spinning wheel it freezes and constantly spins for a couple of days which makes me lose out from continuing my games for winning. This is happening more often and I have a good updated phone so it’s not that. So annoying..Version: 1.254.2.1

Ads crashingThese ads are starting to tick me off!! Often times it freezes the game and my only option is to close the game and re open, than I have lots my game and where I was. Please fix this.Version: 1.258.0.3

Never ending game created by money making creepsEven after completing 2000 levels in 5 years I don’t have a sense of fulfilment. Because some profit making management decides to keep on creating more levels. There is no heart or soul to the game anymore . They just keep building more and more levels by twisting same old levels with different combinations. It’s a bottomless pit much like a ladies handbag! Don’t even get me started on meaningless ads. More than playing the game itself am clicking on “X” and “ok”. Shame.Version: 1.145.0

Waiting for cherries to fall “GLITCH”Three or four different times on different levels I have watched the board clear multiple times and especially the row directly under the treat machine clear as well. No cherries ever dropped. So there goes my win streak. I beat every level on the first try “with boosters obviously” no $ ever have I spent on this “free” game. But time is money. Never the less. After loosing the level due to the ingredients not coming out, I closed the game and checked for an update. There was one. I installed the update. Re opened the game and continued. Low and behold the cherries dropped right away. And voila, back to the winning streak. I know this is just a stupid free game and in the grand scheme of things it means nothing. Especially to complain to an ear that doesn’t even care or want to do much accept keeping you hooked and hope you drop some $ on their addicting product which I will never do. So after writing this review I will reopen the game to continue and the level will drop the cherries and I will move on. Just venting to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing. “CRUSH ON”.Version: 1.244.0.1

Too Hard past level 2000I shouldn’t have to spend money to enjoy a game. i shouldn’t have to beg people i don’t know for lives to play a game. talk about pay to win holy crap. i used to be able to spend hours playing this game to waste time and relax. once and a while there would be a reasonably hard level that i would have to spend $2 to beat, which seems perfectly reasonable to me, this game needs to make money somehow, and free to play with no ads with minimal booster purchases was reasonable. but once you get to the higher levels, the hard levels aren’t even marked with a skull anymore so you have no idea when to strategize with the boosters you already have. the move limits are often far too low for these levels, often to the point where you would only need one to three more moves to win. i usually lose all five lives within ten minutes on levels that give you 13 moves. and even when you get the rare level with 30+ moves, you get bombs which tank the level before you even have a chance to finish. there’s no point in even strategizing half the time because the game gives you absolutely no opportunities to complete a corner of the level. in the end, you’re caught up in the same loop over and over again until the unlikely chance you get lucky enough to get candies in the right order to finish..Version: 1.212.0.1

Dec 2019 update has big new restrictionsYou could previously start and restart levels by going in and seeing the layout and where certain candies were. Now if you go in and out without playing you lose a life. Money grab😤.Version: 1.165.2

Not the sameI used to really enjoy this game, but since the latest couple of updates, some things have become somewhat irksome. For example, the Daily Treat Machine now only pops up every 4-5 days, showing a “not full “ message indicating that the game hasn’t been played in 4-5 days. How can that be when I play on my daily commute and on down time on the weekend? Another annoyance is that the suggestions for moves can actually cause you to lose a level (if you have only a few moves left), so I ignore them completely and often pass levels with moves left in the bank as a result. Additionally, the little fishes now very frequently fly into blank spaces, being completely useless as a booster. And you used to be able to win competitions for gold bars, but now it takes you to the very last step (even when it’s an easy level and you already passed the nightmare levels) and boom, you’re out. Speaking of gold bars, if you don’t use them, you have to play a level for at least 3 days and until they offer 100 more moves (if you spend the bars) before you’ll magically pass. Although the goal for any business concern is to make money, they already do that with the copious ads people watch, so some of the tactics have just made me want to play Royal Match more often.Version: 1.266.0.3

Used to love it but...Seriously, pls add some confirmation before validating purchases with gold. More than once I mistakenly pressed on buy extra moves or lives!! And where is the free win moves wheel every 48h??? You don’t need such methods, this game already rips people off....Version: 1.180.0.1

Quit gameHi I used to be able to quit the game before I do any moves without losing a life !! How come The option isn’t allowed anymore???.Version: 1.165.2

Bad upgradeGame is now unplayable on an iPad since they removed the landscape option. Will be deleting if not fired soon!.Version: 1.259.0.1

Not fair.I’ve been looking after my niece and nephew for a couple of weeks while their Mum is in hospital and to keep them occupied have put this on my phone. It cost me a lot yesterday. I think £2.99 to empty their piggy bank was a bit unfair but I did it. They were really good at it and it was keeping them busy on a nasty day outside. It was expensive but they got to level 190 and then they got stuck. I tried to help. What we were meant to be “going for” was totally unclear. We “unwrapped” all the sweets covered with jelly, we tried everything, getting a striped candy and wrapped candy in one row, everything. Nothing worked. We even cleared the candies with power bombs and still nothing was ticked. All the bars and lives they had won through the day were used and they agreed with me that we were never going to get to the next level because we weren’t even sure what we were going for!! We had tried everything! Safe to say that Candy Crush and my phone are parting company. I’m so disappointed for my niece (6) and nephew (9) all that work to be cheated in the end and my poor purse..Version: 1.155.0

Read the reviews CC!This game is fun until you reach higher levels and then it becomes a total money grab!! You can't win at higher levels without spending money, and they overcharge for what the packages offer. They would have more players and make more money if they charged 1/4 of what they do. This is a GAME and there are lots of free games that aren't constantly trying to get money from the players. Weekly winners get no return for what it takes to one first! It's become a total rip off. The only way to play his game is to start over each time you reach level 1000! I can see this game dying because of F the developer's greed. Shame..Version: 1.180.0.1

Not impressed!!I have played candy crush on and off for 5 years. Currently on level 1926, never had an issue with my progress transferring between iPad and new iPhones and Facebook until now. I deleted my Facebook account to start a new one and try to log into my new Facebook account with Candy Crush. It suddenly takes me back to level 1. So I have a freak out thinking my progress of level 1926 is gone forever until I log back into the kingdom and see it has taken me back to the proper level but it has wiped all my boosters (I know I had 90 freckles NOW I HAVE NONE). So I can’t log in to my new Facebook account unless I want to repeat 5 years of hard work and I have had all my boosters wiped from my game. I’m not impressed at all! I want this issue rectified!.Version: 1.137

OK in the really stages - a rip off if you keep playingEarly stages are great. Differing difficulties on the levels but all are possible with perseverance. It is as the claim says - relaxing. However if you play a progress higher up the levels it becomes impossible to pass the levels without spending money to buy helpers. I don’t mean “hard” to pass the levels but impossible no matter what you do. You then have to play the level (failing through no fault of yours) some thirty or so times over three or four days before the algorithm flips and suddenly you pass the level without trying. On to the next level - back to being impossible to pass without purchasing temporary upgrades. Constantly bothered with ads to buy packages to enable you to pass (maybe!). Once you are past a certain level, not fun, not relaxing - actually impossible to pass without spending cash. Not a great way to treat the loyal players - you become just a mark to see how much money they can con out of you. At least that’s how it feels..Version: 1.236.0.3

Buggy game.Have had this app for quite some time but finding it rather buggy now. Yesterday it had logged me out and so when I tried to log back in it gave me cookie options. I set them then put in my password when it requested it and it said there was an error. It is logged into my account but all profile pictures have spinning circles. There is nothing wrong with my internet, everything streams and downloads as it should so this is a problem with this game. Another issue is the chocolate box. It says that there is a server error and has been like that for weeks. Before it did this error I had chosen something to complete and now every so often I get the banner across the top to tell me how many I have collected but there is no access to the actual game. This game was always quite enjoyable to play but seems to of been quite buggy of late. Hopefully issues can be looked into to make it an enjoyable game again..Version: 1.214.0.1

Love the game but…..I am disappointed that I can’t play the game on my iPad without the screen rotating. I have tried screen lock it doesn’t work. I has been like this for a couple of months now. Any suggestions would be appreciated..Version: 1.260.1.1

Can’t look at a level and exit without losing lives and boosters.Not happy that after 7 years, they’ve made it impossibly hard to pass certain levels. You can no longer check out a new level, exit without making any moves and get a re-shuffle without losing boosters and lives..Version: 1.165.2

Rip offI’ve been playing for a while on and off and recently got back into it. I now remember why I left. The boosters that you win are often not actually given or accrued on your account. I won a coconut wheel on the spinning wheel the other day and when I went to use it it was there in my inventory but when I click on it I have to pay 9 gold bars to use it? Everything is so stingy, there’s rarely extra gold or lives which would actually be useful. Only boosters that magically fail to show up after you’ve won them. I get the hard levels are to keep it challenging but they are so impossible it ruins the fun of just playing through levels. It’s too start-stop to be enjoyable. Your sit back and relax slogan only applies to those who are buying your booster packs every time they fail a level. I thought I’d purchase the season pass to at least persevere because of the things that were advertised to come with it. I expected immediate infinity lives for 15 minutes only to find that is one of the things you can get after passing more levels. So your advertising around that was misleading as well..Version: 1.243.0.1

Ruined‘Portrait mode ONLY’ SUCKS. What a HUGE downgrade. Making the game LESS ENJOYABLE should not be called an ‘update’..Version: 1.259.0.1

Poor supportI was on level 8982 using Apple sign in to save my progress, something went wrong and my login failed. I contacted support and they simply sent me a template to login via FB or King account. I told them I don’t have FB or King account to which they simply pasted the same template in the response. King is a Mickey Mouse organisation so don’t think you will get support if something goes wrong..Version: 1.232.2.1

Over engineeredThe developers have taken what was a fun game and added so many stages, games in games, challenges that actually playing the original game is tiresome as is the attempt to match you with other people who I have absolutely no interest. They’ve even changed the rules of play into a complex suite of things to achieve. It’s massively over engineered now from its beginnings. Plus, to actually play the game you are inundated with splash screen after splash screen and option click after option to actually get to the game. I gave it what must be a 12m break as I tired of it. Returning recently I think I’ll give up. The time I spend wasting on this would be better spent on Mondly learning a language. A true lesson in how to switch your audience off and take something fun and nice and mash into what must be for the developers a programming nightmare. I bet the User Acceptance Testing on this takes 100x longer than used to when it first came out. Like Angry Birds, used to love playing that, another game ruined and long since deleted..Version: 1.225.0.1

Broken used to be great don’t waste your timeHave been playing for years logged in March 2 and lost all progress. And King says they can’t do anything. Was linked to Facebook so they should be able to do something but they refuse. And just send stock answers no actual customer support. Any suggestions for other non King games to spend my money ha ha.Version: 1.196.1.1

Money hungry greedy ownersI’ve been playing this for years and as time progresses the more and more the owners are getting more money greedy and are changing things about their game for their profit. Golden bars are what you use to buy free lives or to buy “cheats”. You get golden bars by paying for them or winning them. You use to be able to buy them much cheaper (and the price seems to keep going up), and win them (through successfully completing a level). It is seeming to get harder and harder to win golden bars. In addition, now the owners of the game have taken away the free spin function at the end of a lost game, which would give you a second chance at the lost game (to try and win gold bars quicker), or would win you cheats. Now that’s gone. It’s obvious they keep making changes to make more money and it’s really starting to make me hate playing. It’s just greedy, as if they don’t make enough money off people as is. I refuse to buy bars anymore because they are way over priced and you don’t get much for what pay for anymore anyways. Really going down hill candy crush, and you’re about to lose loyal customers because of your greedy antics!.Version: 1.183.0.3

They will take your money ! Beware!I am ver If i’ve been using this app for over five years sad that it has came down to this. If I can give this app a -1 I would. Im upset that I have to write this review I have been using candy crush for over five years now it’s gotten me through some good times but then again I see that there just here to take your money and it’s very unfortunate I purchased a $3.99 boost and I was charged $19 because of the previous times I’ve tried to pay for things I did not have enough money on my cash app so obviously they were pending if I don’t have the money in my cash app and I’m buying something small why am I getting charged for the other pending charges that are weeks old I can see if you guys are going to charge me for those purchases at least give me the boost that come with them but the fact that you guys are charging me and I don’t even receive the boost is uncalled for sadly I’m going to delete this app and I’m not going to use it anymore you guys get one chance to scare me and that was your chance I’m done Also buyer beware if you have children who use iPhones or your phone do not let them use this app because if you have a iPhone it will overcharge your card you don’t want to wake up with a negative balance on your credit card because of an app that doesn’t honor it’s reward system.Version: 1.218.0.4

RulesThank you for changing the rules. After almost 6 years of playing I’m quitting the game. Your new POWER UPS and FUN EVENTS stink..Version: 1.144.0

Don’t updateIt’s a very bad update that prevent the player to quite the level without losing a life. It becomes boring and I will delete it from my phone..Version: 1.165.2

Crashes constantly & takes away lives/resets challenegesI’ve been playing this game since it first came out over 10 years ago. It has always been my favorite game but the last 3 months I have not experienced crashes in the game like I have now. After I’ve played it for a certain amount of time, the whole thing will freeze up & log me out. This will happen while I’m in the middle of trying to complete challenges where you have to beat 7 levels in a row on your first try. Obviously if it crashes & you come back in, it has taken away a life & you have to start all over. Imagine how frustrating it would be to spend gold bars to make sure you can pass a level all for it to crash out on you? I think that’s the idea here. The crashes didn’t start until they added the 7 levels in a row challenge. I have had this game crash out on me 50+ times. I’ve emailed support & receive no response back. They don’t care if you spend money on gold bars that you lose when their app crashes. This is honestly a very cheap move on their part & I think it’s unacceptable. Somehow I still manage to win these challenges so I have plenty of gold bars but I don’t plan on spending another dime on this game & I used to every now & then. They aren’t worth your money if they can’t email you back or give you an updated version that fixes the crashes..Version: 1.230.0.2

Well produced but deleted.Cleverly designed to induce enough dopamine hits to keep you playing but the problem (like with candy itself) is there is nothing substantial beneath that sweetness. It never feels like anything is being figured out and predominantly the early levels just provide the player with endless lights and flashes and congratulations without one feeling any sense of achievement. This then sets you up for an impossible level that can’t be completed without buying something and the dopamine fix just suddenly stops which the makers then hope you of course start paying to play in order to restore it. I think that’s ok but I can’t imagine ever feeling true satisfaction as most things that happen are obviously software controlled to win or lose based upon your progress and or how much you have paid. In this sense it’s just a fun nicely designed colourful application but the developers need to provide some sense that you are actually progressing via skill rather than just randomness and amount you have spent. Paying to a play a game you feel you are skilfully figuring out is one thing but paying for one that feels (certainly to me ) utterly based upon fruit machine logic is one I would rather avoid. App deleted.Version: 1.145.0

Major glitches since updateYou watch an ad for any kind of reward and all it says afterwards is “Video not available”… even though I just watched it to get a reward! Also I start a level and I just get a message that says “oops, no moves available”. Like I get a board that has no moves so I lose a life without even having a chance, so I lose streaks and everything. Wth is that about?! Level 7244, I lost a streak without even being able to move because of the rewards I had for that level on my streak. How is that my fault? Fish also just disappear and never come back to the board. Colour bombs don’t remove all candies of a certain colour like it’s meant to, nor does it feed frogs anymore. When you match a group of candies, not all the candies disappear. I’ve matched to explode a bomb and none of the candies/blocks etc around it disappear like they should when it explodes. Really really poor atm. I’m so glad I don’t pay for this, and I seriously don’t know how you could charge anyone for such shocking performance..Version: 1.237.0.3

GrrrrI have been playing this game for years now, however, the higher the levels the more the computer controls whether u pass the level or not....it is incredibly frustrating and blatantly obvious. Stopped playing awhile ago because of this and recently started again, however, am already getting frustrated so can’t imagine it will last much longer..Version: 1.184.1.2

Dumb changesBefore, when you go into the game, and don’t like it’s layout, you could quit without losing lives. Now, not only you lose lives, you also lose the boost you select. I have played this game for years and now on 2377 probably going to quit this game for good since the dumb developers are just thinking of money, and not focus on player experience.Version: 1.176.0.2

What a shameI’ve played this game religiously for about three years and absolutely loved it I have to get 3 stars before I move on aided by the games which create booster points some games are manageable with the amount of moves you get given some are a little more tricky but you can make progress without having to PURCHASE any additional items. Then along came the updates which changed the amount of moves you get in some levels I know this because I’ve compared the same game on different phones one updated one not and there’s a massive difference between the moves on the updated version it’s designed to force you to have to purchase additional moves or boosters to enable you to complete the game which to me is not the spirit of things just greed on the part of the developers. The most recent review which say how great it is obviously never played the original Stop being so greedy! Original version gets 5 stars.Version: 1.134.1

New update - very unhappyI think this is a great game, but the latest change, removing the ability to back out of games before making a move, without losing bonuses or a life, has ruined the game for me..Version: 1.165.2

Candy Crush SagaSo disappointed. Been playing on and off for so many years. Recent months, has become my favourite games. Not any more. Made a purchase a couple of weeks ago…. (I never spend money on internet games). Now the game is completely different. Way to hard levels, just wanting more money. Won’t get anymore from me. Sad much. Good bye Candy Crush..Version: 1.210.2.1

App crashes and glitches oftenOne of the most frustrating experiences when you’re playing is when a game crashes through no fault of your own and you lose all progress. I was on a 70-odd winning streak on a level around 1600 and the game crashed and closed mid level. I re-opened the app and I had lost a life and my winning streak. Super annoying and this is the third time it has happened. I have deleted the App and I will not be playing again..Version: 1.236.0.3

KTI want to start by saying I had stopped playing candy crush saga for about two years. It had become boring. I started playing again about 6 months ago. I like the new changes & updates to the game but developers...WHAT is the PURPOSE of the crowns???? One objective is to get boosters. The crowns offer NOTHING but confetti. POINTLESS!! Give us crowns WITH free boosters for completing so many levels on the first try! Additionally, TWICE I’ve come in 2nd place for the weekly race these past 2 weeks and didn’t get my prizes! The race ends without warning & a new race begins. But NO PRIZES! According to the race rules, the top 3 places get prizes! Additionally, why does the game take my black balls WITHOUT a stripe or candy bomb nearby?? That’s CHEATING!! Then the hard, harder, hardest levels come so close together, that there’s little opportunity to move ahead in the race once reaching the 2,000 levels. While the competition is ok, it seems that you’ve forgotten that SOME ADULTS play the game to relax & as a pass time. It should’ve cause frustration because you’re trying to force players to make booster purchases. We’re adults, not kids wanting to spend countless hours trying to get through one level of a game. Our lives consist of more than time on a game. So it would be greatly appreciated if you’d cut the crap and make the game fun again!!.Version: 1.164.0

Room for improvementAs an iPhone X user, the screen is still not optimised and the large black bezels can seem to get in the way of a good play. User’s shouldn’t have to wait for more lives to play again, and the hard levels do not have enough moves to complete the level without running out within a few minutes. This becomes frustrating and often makes the game less enjoyable. User’s also should have access to all hole made in each level to buy more moves and power-ups without having to wait, once again. Apart from this, when the levels are achievable, this game is fun and provides good entertainment as a whole..Version: 1.115.2

UpdatesI want to start by saying I’ve been playing this game for a long time and I’m a huge fan. With that being said I’ve reached out several times to complain about the update that gave us the backpack. In my game there is no way to get my boosters out of the backpack. I can be stuck on a level for literally weeks with tons of boosters in there that could help me that I can’t use. Even timed boosters that I win will just stay in there. Once I win the level they will all come pouring out. Is this a gimmick by the developer to get the player to purchase boosters? If so this is really awful and not a great way to market or keep players. I have reloaded the game several times thinking it’s some kind of glitch but it just stays the same. The boosters that I win go into the backpack when I click on them to get them out it prompts me to to click on the purchase button when I do it wants me to purchase this booster that I already have. Again not fair. How can you expect anyone to beat a Nightmarishly Hard Level with no boosters? I’m disappointed and frustrated. I may have to stop playing until the issue can be resolved. I can’t really advance in levels anyway..Version: 1.168.0.3

Just utter money grabbing machine.I’ve been playing candy crush for years, I’m at around level 1850 and I’ve never bought any boosters but have enjoyed the challenging levels, that was until the recent updates where they have intentionally reduced the amount of moves on most levels by up to 70% on some! Making it almost impossible to complete some levels meaning you can be stuck on a level that isn’t even marked as hard for days if not weeks without buying boosters or finally just getting a lucky winning set up. What disgusts me as it’s so blatant why they did it and what they want. After losing a level third level in a row for the 50th time running I decided to uninstall it and leave a review, you have taken what used be a relaxing and engaging game and turned it into nothing more than a money making game designed to frustrate its users into spending money on overpriced pixels and boosters, no more. From the looks of it I am not the only one!.Version: 1.139.0

Don’t play fairI like playing CC but when you watch ads for extra goes it can be a scam especially when the game recognises you will win and move forward instead of getting the extra turn the screen goes black and you have to close it down to get to play again there goes the extra turn you have already watched an ad for and any extra turns you could have claimed plus your game you were playing. This has happened so many times I deleted the game and it was only because I went on holiday I installed it again but this is becoming so annoying I’m seriously considering deleting it again. Truely fix your glitches it is really taking away any enjoyment in playing..Version: 1.221.0.4

StupidTo get past a level you have spend your money which is so not worth because it’s so boring, wish you could do something else rather than just looking at a board..Version: 1.166.0.4

Bad customer serviceI have been playing this game for 8 years. I was past level 1500 and had over 100 of every item stocked up as well as 84 gold bars. It told me to log into Facebook to save my progress, so I did then lost EVERYTHING. After months of trying to contact them, finally they responded saying they will not replace lost items. Do not play any KING games if you wish to keep your progress safe. Terrible policies and terrible customer service..Version: 1.178.0.3

Three in a row candies didn’t clear until I watched an adI’ve been playing Candy Crush for years, was past level 5200 when I decided to finally delete it because I was so sick of how rigged it was. I would get stuck on level for a long time trying to beat it without watching ads, but alas the game doesn’t like that. I don’t like feeling forced to watch ads just to pass a level. The straw that broke the camel’s back came on one of my last played games. I had a good win streak going and needed to clear 3 tiles to win. They were spread out, but I did the best move that I could, which did include a booster of some sort, but I don’t remember the specific one, and hoped for the best. As I watched the chain reaction, 2 were cleared right away and I waited to see if the third would get done as well. As the pieces fell and came to an end, there was a 3 in a row color match right on the one I needed cleared to win. It didn’t clear those! Instead the Lock Screen came on and I had to watch a video to get an extra move, which I did. Sure enough when the Lock Screen lifted, that 3 in a row cleared as it should have already, and I won without even making another move 😡. I don’t play rigged fair or amusement park games, so I’m not going to play a rigged game on my phone..Version: 1.233.1.1

Fun, but unrealistic.I had a wave of nostalgia downloading candy crush and remembering playing this on my first gen iPad many years ago. Only to find with updates, the game now has these “nightmarishly hard levels” every 5 or so levels that 95% of attempts require you to use gold bars. Sometimes the statistic is literally “92% of players had to buy more moves”. You can spend 5 days trying to beat one level or cave and spend hard earned money to pass it, only to run into the same issue 5-10 levels later. Money hungry company has really switched to the pay to win feature..Version: 1.249.0.1

Pointless.The last update has effectively sucked all joy out of this game. So now that I know the harder levels (of which there are too many anyways) are literally impossible, as in they are NOT possible to pass until you play and fail enough times to pay 10 gold for 40 moves? Why? If it can’t be done anyway then why not give me the option to just buy those moves immediately instead of forcing me to replay a level that can’t be passed to get to that point. It’s absolutely pointless. At least before you knew if you persevered you could eventually get passed. There’s no longer an incentive to play since I now have to pay to pass most of the levels AND I have to mind numbingly play most levels over and over knowing I CAN’T pass it. I don’t get it..Version: 1.252.1.1

Not getting boostersI get first place for the weekly race and receive boosters or win boosters in contests or daily spins but when I go and look they are never there. Been playing this game for years, since it first came out, and I don't think candy crush cares about their long time players any longer. I've deleted this app once and quit playing candy crush for around a year and just started playing again but I'm at the point of just deleting it once again. Some of the new levels are now totally impossible to beat without boosters, which I never even receive in the first place. Candy crush should listen to their long time players and take constructive criticism and amend this issue of boosters not being received and get rid of "nightmarishly hard levels". Who even wants to play those levels in the first place. Unfortunately, I truly feel like this game has become run by people who don't care about players anymore and only want to make money. Saddened to see that when money comes into the equation people get greedy...cheating players out of boosters...forcing hard levels...and in the end, the fun of the game is taken out and the game is ruined..Version: 1.152.0

Way too buggyAlmost impossible to play now. Surprising that this last update ever got out past QA, if there was such an effort. Someone should be either embarrassed or looking for a new occupation..Version: 1.232.2.1

SadWhy aren't free lives every 30 min anymore?! Also enough with candy royale and portrait mode! It’s quite apparent you don’t care about your users, since the same issues are being brought up by many people with no fix. Sad..Version: 1.260.1.1

CrashingEver since the update the app is just stuck on the loading screen whenever I try to launch the game! It’s been a couple days now and still no difference and I’ve tried troubleshooting to no avail.Version: 1.197.1.1

Don't do itI've been playing for awhile and I'm in the upper levels now, but every single thing they have done lately to change the game has made it worse. You can only play the game in portrait view now on an iPad, which means I'm having to physically hold my keyboard (in horizontal mode, I can rest it on a desk without it toppling over) and am constantly accidentally clicking out of the game. The only way - and I mean 100% of the time now - to win a game and progress levels is to pay money. They give you way too few moves and unless you're willing to play hundreds of the same level to hopefully score a lucky board, you will have to pay. They keep giving additional moves when you aren't progressing, but who needs 120 extra moves when all you need are 5 or so? I would rather they make the number of moves realistic to win in the first place than having a hundred extra moves that you have to pay for. They changed the rewards to timed boosters in many cases rather than having in-game boosters that could actually help. And by timed, I mean 5 minutes. Most games you can't even use it twice, so what's the benefit of that? I could go on and on, but although the game is addicting and fun, it's beyond frustrating and expensive now. I don't see myself continuing on and you shouldn't even bother getting suckered into what's become a full blown scam..Version: 1.258.0.3

Frustrating AlgorithmsOverall a decent game but a few issues. Have played the game regularly for quite some time, but when using the free spin on the booster wheel, I've won every booster (multiple times) except the jackpot. When using boosters sometimes they show up multiple times in play and others just once, adding to inconsistency. Also, when no moves are available the game reshuffles the candies, but the game can at times reshuffle in a way that means there is no way to achieve a win without purchasing boosters. The algorithms seem to be questionable here. Have also had several instances where a game has been won but the win hasn't registered on the board and I've had to replay and win the level a second time. NEVER buy boosters, definitely not cost effective..Version: 1.108.1

Ridiculously easy.Ok, I remember first downloading this game 4 years ago as a way to kill some time when I worked as a home health aide while my patient would nap or sleep overnight. It wasn’t that easy, I even spent a few bucks on things to get past certain levels. After a while and a thousand levels, I deleted the app. That was 3 years ago. Fast forward to last week. I was sick with COVID and was going crazy having to quarantine and needed to kill time so after seeing a million commercials on cable I downloaded the app again. I got as far as level 317 before I deleted it again. At first it was fun, winning every level without running out of lives, barely losing any lives at all. Then the nightmarishly hard levels started showing and I figured I’d lose a lot of them, need to request lives from friends... when you can finish these levels with 20 moves to spare, it gets a little boring, honestly. Don’t get me wrong if I’m in an airport and need to kill a few hours, it would probably make time go by. Maybe it’s just me, but I like a challenge. Having a winning streak like the Harlem globetrotters just isn’t fun lol..Version: 1.193.0.2

Weird App - Annoying IssuesI love the concept but there are issues. I went to step 7 and all that was happening is the game was showing me what to do without any chance to think first. It was like a game for preschoolers! Also other steps are really short and have weird features. I need an option to play longer games which are more normal. Have deleted this app. It’s not fun any more,.Version: 1.244.0.1

Gone downhill - please fixI’ve spent several hundreds over the years playing this game getting to the high 4000’s- I find it relaxing - or I used to until they changed it so that you lose a life when you reset the board. Given that some levels are so difficult that resetting the board until you get your boosters where you want them is absolutely necessary, this is just an unconscionable cash grab. Why not be inventive (like you used to be, King) adding value for players to purchase rather than just removing what you had already given. One of the reasons I’ve never spent anything on Candy Soda (although I still play it) is the inability to reset the board. It makes the game slow and frustrating and is a disincentive to buy extras. Contrast with my spending where you could reset the board, make some progress, feel good about playing, keep playing, keep spending. Get the picture King? I’ve often thought about quitting when things got a bit hard - but kept going - however, unless this issue is fixed I will choose to spend my time (and money) on Bubblemania which still has issues but at least they appear to listen to feedback and fix things that frustrate paying customers..Version: 1.165.2

You need an update lolHi Candy Crush. Just writing to say level 435 is actually IMPOSSIBLE to pass on 13 moves when it is supposed to have 25 (yes that’s right I did my research). So this is something you need to fix ASAP because not only am I true supporter of this app but I literally paid to try and pass and it is still impossible and wasted my poor limited student bank which I’m actually ashamed about. Once you fix this app I will give you 5 stars but in the meantime you have a very ANGRY customer who is giving you a 1 star although I wish it was a -10 star.Version: 1.135.1

Bad piggyEver since the st Patrick’s update 2023 the game will not stop trying to up sell the piggy bank. As someone with no App Store money playing a free game I understand pushing in game purchases, but the pig is showing up between every level. You cannot use it without money (or if you can it’s not obvious how). My screen has trouble sensing taps around where the x is, so having to skip 4 screens between levels is getting more and more frustrating. Add this to a glitch that says I can use and ad-watch to get bonuses that will randomly grey out the watch button with no reason (if you try to use it just after you’ve seen an ad it will go away with a message that no videos are available vs just greying out the button) and my basic enjoyment of this game is whittling away. Do I have to know how much I’m losing on the levels passed? Is it critical that I race every few levels? The piggy bank is just working on a fraying nerve..Version: 1.248.0.1

Game not working correctlyGame does not work correctly. It will not connect to the App Store at the end of each level and keeps telling me there is a ‘connection error’. I am not able to log in to my account. I am not able to use my gold bricks to buy five additional turns. Progress is not being synced between iPhone and iPad. Very frustrating and a waste of time. If this isn’t rectified shortly, I will delete the game from both devices..Version: 1.249.0.1

Since the update on 10 Jan 23 it keeps crashing!!!Deleted this 2 days ago and started again from the beginning as it kept crashing. WAS working perfectly, I've now made the mistake of doing the update from 10th Jan 2023 - it has now started crashing again!!!!!! Can someone please sort this or I'm gone - I love this game when it works. Update to this review as it won't let me put a new one on - since the last update it keeps crashing when I've used all 5 lives therefore I can't ask friends for lives -SORT IT OUT PLEASE!!!!!! And when I win a level it crashes therefore I keep losing the win bonuses I used to play this all the time - I managed to get to level 405 then it started to crash after an upgrade. I deleted the app as I was getting annoyed - losing all my progress. I have since decided to download it again and start from scratch. I cannot even get the game to load fully before it crashes - NOT HAPPY!!!! (iPad player).Version: 1.243.0.1

Great game but inconsistentThe latest release crashes regularly, and I’ve found myself losing boosters as a result. Often I find myself in an impossible situation where a task is time restricted, but it’s not actually possible to complete the task within the time due to restrictions imposed by the game, the chocolate box tasks are a good example of this. Also some events just disappear half way through completion, which is very frustrating, and I often seem to be competing with computer generated players when trying to complete the most levels each week - a player with a candy crush avatar that competes over 200 levels a week, for example. It’s always been, and still is, a frustrating but addictive and enjoyable game..Version: 1.214.0.1

It's good but the laggy-ness isn'tTo be honest I am a mediocre player, I am currently on level 1419 (with no cheats). There are times were it is frustratingly challenging and I could be stuck for like a day, but that's what's good. Here's the bad things: they need to work on the laggy ness and glitches. My game from time to time keeps crashing and it won't work every time I try to go into CS. Also sometimes when I complete a levels due to it crashing it doesn't save it and it's infuriating. The animation needs to be worked on, because on my device you can see the individual frames and it's quite slow, which my game runs slowly and glitchy as well. I hope they fix this and maybe I will consider a 5 star rating..Version: 1.124.0

Idk how this game has 5 stars.I’ve been playing candy crush for years. Currently on level 674. All the reviews i’ve read have one star and are completely true. I have yet to even find a positive review for this game. The app had an option to watch ads for boosters/additional moves/extra lives. I got stuck on one hard level and spent $1 to help me pass it. Now, almost every. single. level. has not enough moves to let any reasonable person accomplish the level. The option to watch ads to have a few more moves to pass the level or to get more lives is now completely gone as well and my only option is to spend money. I firmly believe that if I had not spent that $1 (showing them i would spend money to pass my level) the ad option would still be available to me. I have had to pay to pass my last 3-4 levels now and I will be deleting the game. This was my go-to relax and decompress game, but it’s become just a scam. Very sad to see you go Candy Crush. I hope you re-evaluate the game setup soon and place more value into the people who have loved and played your game for years. I would have rather purchased this game for $3.99 if it meant fair + fun playing..Version: 1.242.1.1

I need answers!The game is great for passing time and lets be fair it gives plenty of boosters and stuff BUT the thing that is annoying me the most is that I can only claim boosters like the daily spin, event rewards, even take part in the events, etc when connected to WiFi! None of that stuff works with only mobile data! Im synced with Facebook on the game but says there’s a connection error when using mobile data but soon as I’m connected to WiFi everything is normal; I’m connected to facebook, I can take part in the events, I can take my daily spin, I can collect rewards from colour matches, I can take a spin to try win more moves after losing a game etc but can’t do any of that on just mobile data alone. Why? I’m sure before all these updates started happening you could play on mobile data and everything be normal as stated above :/ please fix this I miss out on so many things. Any sort of reply/answer would be grateful. So 3* from me till this issue is resolved..Version: 1.164.0

Commercials & adsThis game Candy Crush should be called commercials and ads because that’s all there is. You can’t place the game unless you buy something the games wants you to buy. I never bought anything so I have to watch the ads and commercials. Hundreds of ads and commercials constantly for as long as you want to play the game. I have two Ipads so I play the Candy Crush with one ipad and play another game with the other ipad, otherwise I would never be able to stand all of those commercials and ads. I like the game but all of those ads & commercials is ridiculous. You really don’t get play the game because if you don’t select the correct move which is to buy something or watch an ad or food commercial, or exercise commercial, house commercial, investment commercial or the Wendy’s commercial for however as long as you want to play. The game tells you to bring people into the game to help you. If you don’t obey then you must watch commercials over and over. Every part of the game involves you submitting to the commands of the game or else you get kicked off. You don’t really know if other people are ahead of you or are they buying the candy crush items. If they buy and you don’t buy then suddenly you are behind and not winning at all. I refuse to buy any candy crush so I rarely am ahead but I don’t care because I have other games to play..Version: 1.248.0.1

Beware the changeI enjoyed playing this game for some time now. I tried to balance beating the levels with no boosters and sometimes buying gold and boosters if the levels were too hard. The game was fun reliable and entertaining. Yesterday the latest update has removed the ability to reset the board if you felt the candies lay badly. This was an essential tool for those levels with low moves which was very useful. The official line from king seems to be this was a “fix yet has been in the game for years and years and people need to live with it. My opinion is that it is intended to frustrate and encourage a higher spend on gold or boosters. This fix also causes an issue if you left a booster ticked because it means you have to play it whether you need it or not. I only got to level 1925 but won’t be playing anymore due to the attitude of this company and the way this has been rolled out. A shame but I’m sure there are other games to spend my dollars on..Version: 1.165.2

Bugs galoreI love this game. It is immersive, highly escapist, involves no money or greed. Pure simple old-fashioned fun! But the bugs! When I select to watch an ad to get added game time I get several bugs/glitches. The screen goes black, no ad plays so I get no reward. The most common annoying bug is that I am forced to download some stupid game I do not want. It just freezes! Even when I follow the lead to download the unwanted game, play the new game, I still can not get back to Candy! The last and most major bug is it takes 3-6 attempts to get Candy to play first thing each day. I press the buttons but they are non-responsive. I suspect the game is too multi-media laden for some older gen iPads like mine. Surely you can reduce the graphics and multimedia a little to allow the game to play well across all platforms and media devices. That is make the game truly device agnostic. This is such a great game, one I would give 5 stars if it worked my smoothly when I try to play it on my 2nd Gen Mini iPad..Version: 1.267.0.2

Disgustingly rigged to try make you spend money on the game.So obvious how disgustingly rigged the game is. Just finish short of one convenient jelly where you can purchase a lollipop to get you over the line or coincidentally one more move and you would of passed the level so you purchase bars to play on. Then you are using all your lives and basically give up for a couple of days and then come back and you pass the level with more than half the moves left with freckle candies just popping up everywhere so basically it eventually gives it to you so you dont get bored and continue playing the game. What a disgusting format the makers of this game are absolute pigs and all the people who coordinate this are absolute money hungry dogs. Its literally like playing the pokies. This game is causing anxiety and stress in individuals and just overall mental health problems..Version: 1.198.0

Not impressed!After being on level 1391 for months, I finally gave in and made a purchase to help me overcome the level. I finally finished it after spending more money than I would have liked and once I finished I closed the game down to go about my day. I have since opened the game up and it has taken me back to said level and is making me repeat it for some godforsaken reason. I’m not usually one to complain but you need to fix this from happening. It has happened to me before but this has just really irritated me seeing as though I paid money. I know i finished he level as it showed up with the stars and all the usual rigmarole that occurs after you finish a level. Is there any way this can be rectified?? I have absolutely no interest being stuck on this level again and doubt I’ll continue playing. Any suggestions as to why this has happened??.Version: 1.129.0

AddsY’all are BUGGING with the adds... it’s a game not a tv show.🙄.Version: 1.151.0

Way too frustrating.I am on level 4000. What I have learned is that every game now takes several days to a week to win unless you pay. I am really, really sick of this. It hasn’t been fun for some time now. I rarely play anymore because of the constant frustration of levels with too few moves and it has become obvious that they intentionally mess with your game so you cannot win. It is not random. My husband and I both play. I originally signed him up from my account years ago and I have contacted Candy Crush about the differences in his game and mine. I was informed by an employee that they give different players different options and opportunities. He occasionally buys stuff, I do not. About a year ago I bought some power ups to see what would happen and the game became harder to win instantly. That and the constant, unending pop ups! Buy this, look at that, force you to look at some idiotic disapproving cartoon while you play, force you to participate in a race that drives home how you lost the race - Oh no! Hurry up and buy something so you can win!!!! I would buy the occasional power up if I found the game pleasant and fun. Since you are doing your best to force me to, I will not. I will continue to play when I need a distraction while I am waiting at an appointment but that’s about it..Version: 1.255.4.1

Becoming a jokeI’ve always loved candy crush. i’m not going to lie but i’ve been very guilty of spending lots of money on the game, and i mean lots, as well as paying for unlimited lives so playing all the time. however i’m on level 1200 odd and i feel as though some of the levels are just beyond a joke. it seems every level or every second level is a “hard level” as they’re called. which don’t get me wrong i like a challenge, but i get to a point where i get so bored of it as i’m stuck there for days sometimes weeks and i just think, what’s the point, it’s like a dread playing the game now. As i say, i used to love the game but just not for me anymore and i recon i’ve spent over £150+ on the game since summer and i just wish i spent my money on something so much worthwhile as this game has just proved to me that i’ve wasted my money!! id say the game is… okay, but that’s it, nothing else, just a joke tbh.Version: 1.215.0.1

Games are often disappointingIt used to be most rounds were enjoyable and the odd round would be frustrating unfortunately it is now the other way round. Some levels eg 3361 are straight up luck because you are not provided with enough to succeed until you get a lucky round after which you are blatantly aware that it was not skill that allowed you to pass the level. Levels that claim hard are easy and vice versa..Version: 1.165.2

OverratedEventually you’ll get to a level where they’ll force you to use your “boosters”. You want to hold onto your boosters for really hard levels but out of nowhere, you’ll be on a level that isn’t even labeled “hard” (I was hung up on what seemed like a pretty easy level, in the high 50’s or low 60’s- I know, not far at all… I download and delete this game often… just downloaded it again for the first time in about a year, and an hour in, I was reminded why I ALWAYS delete the game out of frustration) anyway, I can’t beat the level without exhausting my boosters… if I decide to pocket my boosters and just keep using/losing lives to try to beat the level, I can exhaust all five lives and wait to get more… conversely, if I revisit that same level hours later when I have five lives… I can beat said level without a problem… except now I have less/no boosters for future, harder levels… forcing me to eventually pay for boosters or wasting lives trying to beat the next hard to beat level. Overall… game wastes time very well… but due to how frustrating a simple (non “hard level”) can be… annoyingly it seems to purposely make it so you’re forced to use boosters when you’d really like to hold onto them for much harder levels. Sure, you can beat the level by using your boosters but then you’re on like level 59 (not far at all) and have 0 boosters left. Sweet..Version: 1.223.1.1

Greedy developersWorst game updates ever. Ruined the experience... garbage greedy game.Version: 1.183.0.3

Love it but,I absolutely love this game, have been playing for years, the only down side is recently it’s began to crash while I’m mid game or have just finished a level, then once I open the app up again it’s like it never happened, I lose all my streaks (I was on a win streak of 100+ before 😭😭😭) and all my powerups that I had used on the level were still as if I had used them, but never actually got to 🥺 please fix this, I love this game and don’t want to have to delete it because it keeps crashing.Version: 1.220.0.4

It’s Got Too HardLevel 10,000+, age 75, IQ 146. Ask me a few months ago and I’d have awarded 5 stars without question. I’ve been playing daily for years, and it’s my only guilty pleasure. But, recently it’s got so difficult it’s become boring. No longer are there easy levels to skip through, and unless you’re prepared to pay for extra boosters, it’s not unusual to be stuck on one level for days - playing 5 in a row then waiting a few hours to play another 5. Most levels now need little skill, but require extraordinary amounts of luck. Occasionally you’ll spot a trick, but generally you’re waiting for the game to inject a succession of helpful boosters. I used to be able to build up a store of my own boosters, awarded free for winning levels. Now I’m completing so few games I never have enough. It’s a Catch 22 situation- you need boosters to win levels, but if you don’t win levels you don’t receive enough boosters. Five stars for beginners and intermediaries, One star for advanced players. Please Mr Developer, make the game fun again..Version: 1.246.0.1

AdsThe adverts they use when you watch them on other games are ridiculous. Most(all) have a game that actually isn’t in it when u download it. It is the most untrustworthy app I have ever seen ads lie for. Stupid people. Who ever chooses the ads, you are and idiot for choosing them. People should be very disappointed in you. I hate this app as it doesn’t have anything from the ads. If you add them I will be so happy. If you don’t I will never download the game ever again so please put what is in the ads in the game. I will write another review when you have added it into the game but for now I have a bad review for you. To anybody reading this and you downloaded the game because the game has got great ads, the ads lie. If you want to go ahead and download the game because of the ads you can but the ads lie. To creator/s of the game, I beg u add the ads into it Please please please 🙏🙏🙏.Version: 1.249.0.1

SO frustrating.I never ever writes reviews, but this app has caused me so much frustration, I felt compelled too! Let me start by saying, the moto “swipe your stress away”, big joke. Let me be frank, this game is seriously addicting, and honestly was fun at first, now here at level 694, almost every board takes days and days to get past. Some of the levels are literally not possible to beat without using boosters, which every 5 seconds this game continuously shoves in your face the “special deals”, this game is free, no ads, they have to make money somehow. Whatever, I get it. However it eventually comes to a point every couple of levels you have to pay more and more to win. Before you know it, you’ve spent wayyy more then you’d like to admit, and AS SOON as you start buying things, the algorithm will INTENTIONALLY make the boards impossible to beat without purchasing, so instead of now being a valued buyer, you’re not someone this game will do everything in its power to walk alll over your completely embarrassing addiction to this game, and frustration of being stuck on a level after playing it over and over 80 times. Moral of the story, if you play this, never cave in and buy, or you’ll be in a trap of being forced to continue buying in order to move on. Even better option, just don’t even play. It’s easy to say you won’t spend money, then get addicted and almost hypnotize into buying. This game is a pay to win scam, nothing relaxing about that..Version: 1.240.0.2

Dum dumThis game is dumb, once you get in the 200 levels it all changes to make it so you have no chance at winning unless you use Gold that is impossible to earn to continue. all i can say it was fun till you realize it is just about buying wins ha. You can pass any level and they intentionally make it so you have to use pay for gold or massive earned credits of cookies fish and lolly pop hammers ect to advance. What a joke top it off with five lives that you never advance and sit on the same level till you collect your free stuff that still does not help when they only allow 1 move on the hard levels and it is rigged so it is not even luck, they intentionally make it so you have to purchase at the last few moves just to finish the levels. So dumb I can finsh level 325 anytime buy using 10 gold or 5 candy perks but i want to see how long or if even possible to advance on the rigged game with no add ons and it is just annoying at this point over three hundred tries with a max of three different moves to make! the game suks and just aggravates you while boasting about fun by kicking back and swiping ha! The whole pretending there is any skill involved is nonsense when most of the difficult levels only allow one move so you really have no choice, not even fun i will delete it now!.Version: 1.266.0.3

FrustratedI enjoy playing this game very much. I don’t mind having to watch ads. I’m on levels over 5000 so have been playing for awhile now. I am getting very frustrated with the ad that keeps freezing and won’t let me play on. I’ve sent a message to King but it is still going on..Version: 1.260.1.1

Mind numbing and boring at higher levelsAt the lower levels this is a great and addictive game. Years ago, the higher levels used to be fun, too. But not any more. The higher levels have now been tweaked so that you do not have enough moves to pass first time. Even with boosters many harder levels are set at a sequence of events with blockers (keys, skulls, etc) to render most boosters worthless. This is to stop your streak. At the same time, after 5 tries you are offered extra turns, more each try until you are offered 35 extra moves, i.e. a free pass if you pay gold bars. At this point the game is fixed so that the odd colour bomb or other goodie drops near the end to tempt you into spending your last lollipop hammer or hard earned gold bars because it leaves you just one turn away from passing. This is not by chance, and if you know this, it renders the game just mind numbing and boring: to progress you play level after level just to wait for the free pass, which eventually will come even if you have no gold bars. If by that time you know you can't earn any more gold bars because you have been beaten at the episode race, and if when even spending money on timed boosters means you get penalised by having the episode race taken away for the duration of your purchased boosters (which happened to me), the game is no longer playable. I just wait for someone else to be placed in charge who will resurrect what used to be a fun game..Version: 1.231.0.3

LadyMargaretPlayed for a very long time but now it is mostly boring as there is no room to try and play with skill as, usually, move one thing and everything explodes even when nothing of the same colour anywhere near. It is all just down to plodding on and hoping for the right game board. Read somewhere this had been sold so, presumably, the new owners are trying to recoup their investment. All these super hard level with a badly drawn owl telling me that 87% of players needed to buy help to pass says it all. Refuse to pay anything as once they know you will pay you will never get past one of these levels ( which are becoming more frequent) until you pay up. That is a mugs game! Just using up my accumulated boosters (never ever paid for) and then time to delete. So many new games to choose from now. Totally spoiled through greed. You shouldn’t have paid so much for it!.Version: 1.248.0.1

Don’t pay them money. It’ll ruin the game.Similar to other reviews. I was having difficulty on a level (2307 i think). Stuck on it for days. Used all my free boosters, never passed the level to collect more, so I caved and bought a little $1.99 booster pack. Ever since then, i’m averaging maybe 1 level every 2 or 3 days (now on 2327, been stuck there for 3 or 4 days). Once you pay once, they take their bets on you paying again, so don’t do it. Every level takes days, and it’s so frustrating. Although I am slightly addicted to the game, I’ll muster up the will power to walk away cold turkey. Thus, after 10+ years playing the game off and on, I think I’m officially calling it quits at 2327 because the amount of stress and frustration is not worth my time and energy just to get dumb luck (although it seems pretty intentional when they want you to pass a level) or take just long enough where they try to lure you back in with a random streak of wins. Thanks Candy Crush for the years of puzzles and helping me pass the time in those boring moments, but you finally got what you wanted. I hope that $1.99 I spent on that booster pack was worth it! ✌️ Deleting the app right after posting this, btw..Version: 1.250.0.2

HUGE RISE OF IN-GAME PURCHASE PRICE IS RIDICULOUS!I’m a huge fan of Candy Crush. It’s my number 1, go-to, fun app. First, I should say, I do not indulge in most “in app” purchases for boosters or “lives”. If I cannot win a level, I will continue to play with what I’ve got. It’s just not satisfying to advance in a game solely from advantages I’ve purchased versus my own effort. That said, occasionally, I WILL treat myself to cashing out the “piggy bank” of gold bars in Candy Crush so I can buy more “lives”. The bank has always held 60 bars...$2.99 to cash out. That amount alone (assuming I had zero bars reserved to supplement this amount) was pretty reasonable considering I could purchase 5 “lives” for 12 bars. It really wasn’t a bad deal...not GREAT, but worth the occasional indulgence. A little over a month ago (possibly closer to 2 months), without a word, the “piggy bank” shrank down to 30 bars...cash out price STILL $2.99!!!! THEY LITERALLY DOUBLED THE PRICE OF THIS IN APP PURCHASE OUT OF NOWHERE! No gradual shift, straight up DOUBLED THE PRICE!! Are there bigger problems in the world than my Candy Crush budget frustrations? TOTALLY! But how shady is it to gouge a price like that OUT OF NOWHERE for a product I’m pretty loyal to and for which I’m reasonably reliable to provide some income? NO WAY, NO HOW, WILL I SPEND ANOTHER PENNY ON THIS APP UNDER THESE NEW CIRCUMSTANCES..Version: 1.140.0

Just read itI’ve been playing this game for quite some time now, I’ve also noticed a change. Some levels are designed so that it’s impossible to continue on to the next level, in order to do so you have to purchase or use countless amounts of power ups. It’s almost ridiculous..Version: 1.242.1.1

Not many giftsI have been playing CC for 5years . It was great at the beginning… but since 2020-2021 alot has changed - lives take forever to refill, we don’t have as many candies and gifts which was fun. Now its so boring. I can stay for 2 weeks playing without gifts This year i have completed the least number of levels 😏😏😏 Not happy at all.Version: 1.243.0.1

Annoying issuesSo I’ve been playing this game for a while. And today again, I got a thing that said oh I got five extra lives. I was still on full on five full lives so it doesn’t do anything. So then when you get down to one or two lives it says watch a video maybe to see if you can get an extra life. I think that if you’re going to get/win five lives that it should update to higher than five lives. Because otherwise I just won five lives are even wasted. And I agree with someone else who posted that the game will make moves for you when you’ve reached the goal. There have been times when I could have gotten higher scores also, with side by side candy bombs, but it splits them up. Or when the there are two wrapped candies next to each other, that could take out rows both vertically and horizontally, and they’re split. And if you don’t beat a level, and have less than 10 bars, you have to lose a life. System gives hints, but they are not always the best move. Today alone I wasted 40 bars to win levels. So now I’m back down to two or three lives, and will have to wait for more lives so I might be able to pass this level..Version: 1.206.0.2

Too Many Pop-UpsI enjoy the actual game play, but for every level you play there’s about ten things popping up on your screen in between levels, reminding you about every event and deal and collaboration and whatever they have this week. Often times there’s 2 or 3 or 4 popping up before you have an actual chance to do anything with intent. It’s annoying and I really wish there was the ability to turn it off. This is especially with the Candy Royale thing they’re doing now- it would be cool, if it was actually optional to join rather than giving you no other buttons to push or way to avoid it, and if it didn’t pop up with a giant “You got kicked out” animation after every single time you don’t pass a level. It makes a game that’s marketed as a relaxing way to destress into something extremely frustrating. I enjoy playing, but if this stuff doesn’t change then I’ll stop. It’s not bad once or twice, but the fact that it’s constant is ruining the enjoyment I have, and the Royale animation takes a level that usually would feel like a tough but interesting challenge and makes it feel instead like failure after failure. Hoping they change things soon..Version: 1.257.0.1

Still fun, but a little confusingIt’s a fun game, but it’s pretty inconsistent. You’ll be playing along easy peasy. You might cut it close sometimes, but somehow you skate by, then WHAM. You’re faced with an oddly far more difficult level that requires special power ups or crazy luck to make it past. One star lost for inconsistency in difficulty. Then... You’re constantly being compared to some random other players as if it matters that you beat them. It’s the most blatant and transparent BAIT I’ve ever seen in a game. Sadly, I bet a lot of people fall for it. It’s just silly and unnecessary. Do they actually expect you to feel satisfied by achieving slightly more than a total stranger who probably doesn’t exist. No... They’re just counting on you to take the bait and plunk a few dollars down to pass them. I won’t give this game a dime. Here’s a tip. If you get stuck and stop playing for a few days, when you come back they’ll give you a bunch of free power ups to get you through that tough level and then some, hoping you’ll get hooked. So, if you get stuck and lose all your lives on a hard level, just go back to fruit ninja or bejeweled for a few days. Then you’ll see what I mean. ; ).Version: 1.142.0

Fun but impossible sometimesI love this game a lot and it’s probably one of my favorite time killers. I am not happy with the fact that there are millions of levels to go and I am barely passing 300, which is fine but I swear some levels are super hard and impossible to clear without using extra boosts, I mean come on, how would you expect me to clear 100 hard jellies in 20 moves. Mathematically, that is just impossible without using a special. The probability of you earning those boosts and gold is far slim, its like they just want you to pay for the gold. Please give other way around for those who wants to play this game for free and want to clear those impossibly hard levels. Also, this is not me going to grocery and actually getting something worth my money, so please keep the price affordable for something like gold for extra moves, or give us chance to earn it easily for the time that I am putting in the game. On top of that I get limited lives, try to give extra heart for nightmarishly hard levels. Also, these levels should me just not back to back give some time to enjoy the game, we not here to be competitive, even games like COD or PUBG isn't as frustrating as Candy Crush gets, Please fix these annoying rules and policies we just want to enjoy the game..Version: 1.251.1.1

Angry - beware of thieving scammers!!Don’t play this game unless you want to spend a substantial amount of your hard earned money. This game is incredibly addictive. Initially they make it easy to win in the levels up to around the first 1000 by then your actually brainwashed. then you need to dig deep for your hard earned cash only to have the game constantly crash at a vital point of the game loosing lives and boosters. Some of the levels are ridiculously stupid like getting yellow candy or chocolate blocks without enough moves to have even a chance therefore requiring the purchase of more lives and boosters. So you purchase and get ahead and bang the game crashes. Do yourself a favour don’t get it!! This company and the like are nothing but thieves..Version: 1.235.1.1

IssuesIts a really fun and addicting game don’t get me wrong, but I have contacting the company of this app many times using contact us website, but they always clear it up saying “it doesn’t transfer to your ipad!!” Let me tell you my problem. I had candy crush on my phone. I had many boosters and extra lives. (50+ extra lives, 99+ candy bombs, 99+ pink donut things, 50+ striped + wrapped candy, and 300+ gold to be exact.) I played a lot so I can use these things whenever I want without having to worry that I’m low on boosters. But ever since I downloaded candy crush on my iPad, I lost all of it even on my phone which doesnt make sense! Ending up with 12 candy bombs, 11 wrapped+striped, 17 fish, 62 gold, and NO extra lives (they were so helpful when i didnt have wifi) I have wrote into their support many times, and they do reply me but they just don’t understand what happened, it’s just really frustrating spending a lot of time on this game and then losing almost everything all because I wanted a bigger screen to play candy crush on. And if you tell me to create an account, i did!! I have an account logged in with Apple and all of this still happened..Version: 1.256.0.1

Can’t win if you don’t payThis game used to be fun. It used to be challenging at times but followed up with a rewarding experience. Now it’s challenging all the time. You are stuck on levels for weeks at a time and unless you pay you won’t advance. I used to spend the odd bit of money here and there to pass a hard level, but now they are all hard. So for me, I’m done. Deleted the app. It’s a shame, candy crush used to be enjoyable..Version: 1.264.0.4

DowngradesI love this game but not the upgrades - more like downgrades. I don’t like being forced to play Royale. I don’t like being told what chocolate box challenge to play, I preferred picking my own. Some of them are just impossible. My biggest annoyance is the levels seem nearly impossible to pass now without spending coins for extra moves. Super annoying and not happy with the changes and money grabs..Version: 1.259.0.1

Fun game but they try to hard to get your money.This is a very fun and addictive game BUT I think their a bit too greedy. Now I doo understand that need to make money from somewhere but they go to far. I’ve got quite a few games and apps on my iPhone and Candy Crush try harder than any other game or app to get money from you. And I’ve never ever won the jackpot on the free spin and I’ve been playing this game for years and I know plenty of other people who’ve played this game for quite some time and they’ve never won the jackpot either. I can understand why they make it hard to win the jackpot but it seems like they put it on there to make you buy more gold. I’ve actually heard of more people to win money on the lottery, and that not a joke either. Apart from that it’s still a great game..Version: 1.120.0

Crashes oftenYou play, work hard and even pay to get bonuses and then just randomly the game crashes and you lose everything. There has been multiple times where I have paid for packs and the game will crash and I lose the things I’ve paid for. Your streaks then get lost and you have to try build yourself back up to your streak, losing all the bonuses they give you with the streaks. I’ve won multiple levels but then the game will crash and I have to redo the level. Only pay money to the game if you’re okay with the chance of losing the things you’ve paid for..Version: 1.231.0.3

Ads for BoostersPlayed long enough to get to level 4706. Recently for the first time in all these years I paid like 79p for a booster pack… Worst thing I ever did! Since then I have lost the option to watch ads to gain moves, lives or boosters. It’s like I’ve been placed into a category of ‘willing to pay money’ so now I can’t watch ads and paying would be my only option. I refuse to pay. Now I get stuck on levels for ages, have no chance of winning races, have very few boosters and therefore playing is far less fun. I wish I’d never paid for that booster pack. I want the choice of watching ads to gain moves etc back. I used to pass several levels a week, now I’m lucky if I pass one. It’s too difficult like this and the fun is so much less! I want to be able to watch ads again. But how? Please help.Version: 1.253.0.1

Bugs / update neededLevels such as 4639 are flawed. Why have booster when you can’t play them. Why have space bot and earn top reward when you lose that ability because of levels like this. Biggest flaw is you can not move candies from under a crystal. Even though your own hint is showing this should be possible therefore you don’t get auto shuffle. Seriously surely someone should be checking this. You earn millions a day and then you have simple flaws like this. Really disappointed and I am on the verge of deleting! Also timed rewards is a con. Especially as you have to wait so long for lives to replenish. Watch! I will not be spending one single cent on your game. Will go on other games! Poor very poor.. remember who makes you all this money.. don’t bite the hand that feeds you!.Version: 1.158.1

So addicting, but now you lose a life by quitting before playing a moveI’ve been playing for years and am a bit addicted, but now all of a sudden, apparently if you press the quit button before playing any moves, it forced you to lose a life! You used to be able to quit before doing your first move if the board came up and looked like there weren’t any good moves, so you could try to get a better first board, esp for the tricky levels but now you just lose a life. Total bs, I’m so annoyed about that. Also you should be able to get more gold bars by playing, not not paying. It’s greedy..Version: 1.132.0

Too frustrating!Used to relax and play this, now it's just frustrating and pisses me off. I don't expect it to be easy but I don't expect to take 5 years to pass one level either (unfortunately, i was stuck on one level for over 5 years after spending $40 to try and get past it and failing and refusing to spend more.) Too many annoying things to list, others have already listed them..Version: 1.169.1.1

Expensive and disappointing…As previous reviewers have noted, the lower levels are great fun and you get lots of free boosters etc., BUT as you get higher up in the, the levels are much harder/impossible to pass without boosters or extra moves, and it’s easy to spend £10+ in a weekend if you play for a couple of hours in a session. This is understandable because the developers are only producing the games to make money, and I was happy to pay to play, but I decided to delete it after running into an error at their end which happened just as I won an championship episode race. Despite winning the level and therefore the race, I didn’t get the gold bars. I contacted the so-called ‘help’ desk, and was told that as I had not taken screenshots of my win and the concurrent error message, they couldn’t do anything- despite me being a frequent player and despite all of the money I had spent on the game. Apparently their system was working perfectly and so it was my problem. Thanks but no thanks- I have deleted the app and will never play any King games again- avoid them at all costs..Version: 1.242.1.1

Csn't play anymoreThis version doesn't open so I just can't play..Version: 1.108.1

DisappointedThe second time I will try to write the is review because the first time it kicked me out. Although I love the game, it’s evident it is setup to make a person spend money to win unreachable levels. I made it to level 756 and although I did contribute money to enjoy a game that I love on previous levels, I understand a business based on games is created with levels where it’s only possible to win by paying which is really lame. This game is like the lottery, you play to win, but know that you have to continue to contribute to almost impossible wins. Disappointed all in all and I now will be deleting!! Much success tho!! I would not recommend unless you have money to beat impossible stages. When you’re winning they want let you complete certain bonuses because only so many can be completed one day!! This game is set up on algorithms to see who spend and how to gain more money. Save your money and invest in something you can really see a benefit from in real time because this is really NOT IT!! Again much success and I hope you take these reviews into consideration and not some person being mad they can’t complete a level that is not setup to be competed without buying extras!!.Version: 1.246.0.1

Downhill fastI’ve been playing for years. I was one of the first people to play the game. I used to play so much I would run out of levels & I loved it but now. It’s been nothing but downhill. First of all it’s $1.99 for 10 bars of gold but everything’s more than 10 gold bars. Just getting a refill of lives is 12 gold bars. The boosters are 15 gold bars & up. So if you’re spending any money it’s upwards of atleast $5 just to get lives. Then if you do make a purchase it’s like because they know that you’re willing to spend money on the game they make it so you can’t pass levels without making purchases. I’ve been stuck on levels for days but soon as I make a purchase for lives or something else then I’ll get off the board. I just used the fish booster on a board with 26 moves I had 2 fish in the entire game! What’s the point of using my boosters if they don’t have any effect. The free spin to win moves for the next level is gone. The boosters for when you’ve won a board are horrible. Every change made to the game is to maximize the amount of money they can get you to spend. I’m so tired of the game I just want to delete it. This is why I stopped playing for 2-3 years & why I might just stop playing again..Version: 1.179.0.3

Unethical money making tacticsBefore even reading the reviews here I deleted the game at level 150 because I refuse to spend money. Sole reason being their tactics, which is to simply frustrate you by sabotaging and making it impossible to win unless you spend money. As many other reviews have pointed out too - most times you will lose no matter how well you were playing, and after a considerable number of attempts or time you will simply win effortlessly with a dozen more steps to spare. The candy dispensing is not random. Example - goal is to pop 30 black candy. But I can’t possibly win if they don’t dispense ANY black candy, can I? Blew up several rows of candy but ZERO black candy appeared. Then when I only have 2 moves remaining, it rains black candy. Go figure. Oh, and candy can explode for no apparent reason just to ruin your set up just when you line up your “power candies” for a winning move. Other tactics to trick money spending include: > purchase button positioning > fake “races” to earn gold bars > “Events” where when you win gives you the opportunity to spend money. > Etc etc. They indirectly gave me the ultimatum of either spending money or delete the game. Deleting the game felt better than winning the level :).Version: 1.211.0.1

Double bills!!Beware: This app double bills on almost every purchase!!.Version: 1.162.1

ISSUES RUINING THE GAME!I enjoy the game but there’s a lot of issues that really annoy me. Here’s a few : 1) The game crashing for no reason causing you to lose your progress and win streak (especially when almost finishing a hard level) and also just resetting itself if I change to another App and come back. Funnily enough I’ve noticed it happens when about to pass a hard level and have +5 win streak. 2) when wining good bonuses on the “spring climb” a lot of the time I progress through (and spend gold so I don’t lose it if caught) and don’t get the time limit it just won. For example (and this happened to me yesterday) I win ‘2 hours’ on the colour bomb, to then go and play and it’s says I only have 30mins left. It happens a lot of the time. 3) inconsistency with being able to watch ads for rewards or extra life. There’s no pattern to when you can use it. The options there one level and gone the next. Or just not there at all. I don’t know if it’s meant to but very annoying when you want to use it and don’t have the choice. 4) Watching ads for rewards (when it actually appears) to then not receive anything after watching..Version: 1.229.0.2

Candy Crush SagaI have been playing Candy Crush Saga for around 11 years and loving it. During those years have been collecting and saving up Inventory for all those years. I was nearing 3000 Candy Bombs and close to 2000 on others and a all round good cache of Inventory. Basically I had a very large store of Inventory until approx a month ago when I was given a prompt to save and all my Inventory disappeared!!!! All the lives I had been given by friends were still there and all my gold bars, just no Inventory!! Can’t begin to tell you how p/:^*d off I am!! Hoping someone can rectify!!!! Will give 5 stars for sure if problem is fixed!!.Version: 1.218.0.4

I miss when I could actually play the gameI first downloaded this game in July 2022 and loved it for months. I didn’t play it every day but really enjoyed it. Now however it’s become less and less enjoyable to play it — I barely even GET to play it. I’ve been stuck on lvl 687 for about a week. I don’t want to spend any more money on this game but I have no boosters or gold bars and this level is impossible to beat without them. The funny thing is it’s not even labeled as a hard level. It should be easy but the amount of moves I’m given is nowhere close to being enough for me to beat it. I’m so frustrated. I love this game when I can actually play it, but it’s clear the devs only care about receiving money. Another thing is I’m no longer given the option to watch ads when I run out of moves to help me beat the level. They used to give me it often, then at some point the ads would go black and I’d be given no extra moves, and now the option is completely gone. I shouldn’t struggle this much to pass a level that isn’t even considered “hard” in the game. It’s been like this for a while—taking days to pass a level just for the cycle to repeat itself. The game is fun, but I’m so tired of being stuck on the same levels for ages just because the devs are so desperate for money..Version: 1.243.0.1

Need to improve on a few thingsI have been playing candy crush for ages and enjoy playing but to keep players wanting to keep playing a few improvements could be made. Like - when you get your free bonus spin each day I have never got the jackpot bonus. You can’t tell me this is not controlled??!! Also, when you get five extra bonus turns when you reach that it does not add on to the amount of turns you have left. You may have just finished a level and still have 5 left and receive the added bonus but it doesn’t take the amount of turns to 10 it stays at 5. Have also noticed that if you want to purchase golds bars you have put up the price. Hopefully some, if not all can be fixed..Version: 1.140.0

A Game Where Success Means StagnationI’ve been playing this since it was a Facebook game. I delete when it becomes obsessive and go back to it if I have a long journey or down time. I reached level 3700 and had a bit of spending money and foolishly made a first time purchase. I like using the fish. What can I say. So I make the purchase, have a great time and smash lots of levels. The very next day I go to the game. No opportunity to watch a video for the first time ever to earn a booster. All today I haven’t had one prompt for a video. No chance to earn extra moves after failing a level. Nothing. Doesn’t take a genius to work out that after my tiny 1.99 purchase they’ve marked me as an easy touch and think I’m going to pay to play. Deleted the app. If a 1.99 purchase is worth them losing a player who watched upwards of 20 videos a day then I’m out. Ridiculous..Version: 1.258.0.3

Good not greatGood game to kill time with however often it will not give you prizes that you’ve accumulated which is frustrating. On a level I had 22 moves left and needed to get one more cherry to drop but the game never gave me a cherry?? Can’t move on which is frustrating..Version: 1.215.0.1

Developers only interested in profit marginsI have been playing Candy Crush for years, now past level 5200. It was my favourite game. It used to be that every couple of days or so, you’d get a free spin for new moves, and opportunities to win boosters. Now, it seems the developers are only interested in profit margins as there are very few of these features left. The free spin for more moves helped me get through levels many times, but now I find myself getting stuck unless I’m willing to pay for extra moves or boosters. It is making me lose interest in the game, and I find myself playing less and less, especially as the levels are more difficult. In competitions, players at higher levels are at a disadvantage against those at the easier levels, unless they go back and replay those. All in all, it’s now become a chore to play - the joy has gone out of it for me..Version: 1.190.0.2

Gambling app nowPromised myself I’d leave a review warning others if it wouldn’t let me pass another level without trying to force me to buy boosters. It’s become apparent that over the last year that they have try to manipulate players to basically gamble. I will be deleting the app from my phone after this. I used to have so much fun playing this game it was a nice escape full of cool puzzles to solve. Had gotten into the 3,000s levels my first time downloading/playing and then deleted when I noticed it was making me spend $.99 frequently to purchase bars for lives. I gave it a good break and recently downloaded again current level 1,700+. It has gotten much much worse! It must track your spending and really not less you pass a really hard level unless you buy their bars or boosters because you’ve played that level 20x and can’t pass. With inflation price have gone up and they target you harder than ever now. They should reward you more often so you don’t have to purchase so many boosters, lives etc. They do have cool features and built a little community where you can give your “friends” lives, but doesn’t do much good if you are being made to purchase/gamble…not cool..Version: 1.238.0.4

Not enjoyable to play anymore. 😕17 moves to remove 338 jelly?? What a joke. That’s after you have to break through multiple layers of ice, jellyfish and god knows what else to even get to the jelly squares. So with each move you need to clear somewhere between 20-30 squares which is impossible. Takes 5 minutes to use your 5 lives and you know you’re not going to be able to complete the lvl to start with and you just have to wait for the algorithm to let you level up after 2-3 days. That’s on a supposedly easy level and then if you eventually pass it says you just passed a nasty level! Why have any pink lvls when they are harder than the nightmare ones?? Also makes it impossible to win any of the competitions so they’re pointless too. If you come 2nd you get one miserable freckle! Just not enjoyable to play anymore. I’m out too..Version: 1.262.1.1

Glitch!!I will have almost all full gold bars and it keeps wiping it out! This is the 3rd time it has done this!!!!!!! I have contacted the customer service and instead they send me stupid links that take me to other people’s comments on the game. It was a fun game for the first few levels but now it’s just a hungry money game. It purposely will make it so you quickly lose all your prizes. It will make it so you’re so close to winning that you might even be desperate enough to purchase those prizes to win (I don’t) and it makes you keep losing over and over again until you’re just so sick of it.. even the easy levels are impossible now. It’s nice to have hard levels mixed in, but now every level is impossible to beat on the first few tries. I usually end up losing all 5 lives even with using the stupid prizes that don’t work. Then when I log on again hours later the game seems almost too easy on that same level I was struggling with 🤔 this game is definitely made to stress people out until they fork out their money. Clearly it wipes out things like my gold bars to get me to be desperate and just purchase them. I get they want to make money.. nothing wrong with that, but at this point it’s ruining what could be a fun game 💁🏽‍♂️.Version: 1.167.0.2

Fun… until it isn’tThis is an incredibly addictive game. Therein lies the hook. The levels are easy and satisfying to get through at first, then once you hit a certain level, it’s virtually impossible to beat the level- unless you spend actual money for extra moves or rewards to achieve it. I’ve been stuck on one level for 3 weeks now and it’s pretty obvious I won’t ever pass it unless I fork out cash to buy items. I guess players are supposed to be so addicted to continuing on with their progress, they’re willing to waste money on the game to do it? I’ll give it one more week then I’m deleting the game..Version: 1.254.1.1

Don’t know how these games are supposed to be stress free?!Nice game, nice graphics with cute characters and story lines. You get hooked on the first few hundred levels. Then as you keep watching ads to get help and lives, this game starts to get frustrating as some ads don’t help, or you don’t get as many lives as the game offers. The levels repeat themselves. The easy ones are fun and relaxing, then the hard ones get annoying as you repeat them over & over! If you get help, lucky you, the game flies into the next level and you begin to wonder ‘what a fluke, how did I pass?’. Once you get stuck on a level and no help…it’s time to really beat the stress! Better to delete it and find a less stressful time waster. I don’t waste money on these games, why should anyone!!! Don’t people pay enough to use the internet these games are already sucking my credit dry and either way you won’t get far. Still can’t understand how people are so clueless, they pay to be included in forums (morons). Overseas the internet is free! Anyway happy gaming to the “Pros” out there..Version: 1.236.0.3

Slightly dissatisfied with regular glitchI have been an avid Candy Crush played for years, it’s always been a great pasttime. Although I don’t agree with the money making tactics, I understand capitalism. However, my biggest issue with the game, is the glitch I find quite often. I’ll be playing and winning many levels in a row, with all the treats that come along with such a feat. Until at some moment when I’m about to finish a level which I was able to greatly enjoy due to the added bonuses of the streak I hold. When suddenly, the screen goes black and my phone exits the app. Now, this only happens when I have a very high streak, and has never happened to any other app. So, I am left to assume it is a Candy Crush glitch. This game which holds so many years of joy, has lost a lot of the excitement due to this regular occurrence..Version: 1.219.0.6

RidiculousThey keep giving you less moves to complete a level so you will have to buy boosters and more additional moves. Ridiculous..Version: 1.140.0

Constant issuesThe app crashes after using it for about half an hour, and nearly ever ad is just a black screen that doesn’t go away. only way to close it is to fully close the app and restart it and hope it doesn’t happen again, but it happens again over and over..Version: 1.241.0.3

Terrible update6 years I’ve been playing and they ruined this with the latest update. Can’t preview a level anymore without losing a life and a booster. Bad move, ruined the game..Version: 1.166.0.4

...I have nothing positive to say about this game, I have lost interest and I’m not wasting my time or money on this game. Less moves every-time and in order to pass “levels” in general you have to use $$$$$. Every God Damn Time. Don’t waste your energy or your breathe and keep your money away from this game..Version: 1.162.1

The more you win the more money they wantI’ve been playing this game for a solid year, always been a favourite. I’m now on level 2629. They they took away free play on moves (to watch an advert for) now they’ve taken away the chance to win things for completing challenges, plus more. I’ve spent money on this game when I’ve had nothing better to do (sitting in isolation etc) and the more I spent the more things they take away every single time. I’ll never spend a dime on this game again. Not to mention every time I did buy something like freckles/lives etc it was guaranteed I’d lose as soon as I did that. Oh and I only get the climb the stupid bean stock every time I ran out of lives. But when you don’t play for a while you’ll win 5 in a row. Stupid game built on strategic money making. There’s nothing strategic about it though, almost like pokies tactic.Version: 1.185.0.1

Love it but...I really do love this game but why make us ask for tickets to proceed further. I was sitting with 3 friends who all play Candy Crush I sent them all a request so I could move on and no one received a request for a ticket. Now I have to wait something stupid like 73hrs before I can play again. Just make it so we can just continue. Or do a level where you need to get a certain score to proceed. Waiting hours and hours is just taking me away from the game. Please consider this. Also after playing more and more is the jackpot on the wheel actually winnable? I've never seen or heard of anyone winning it. Maybe make that a bit easier to win too. I know you's need to make money on certain aspects of the game etc etc. But to be playing all these years and never win it is a joke. Thanks.Version: 1.113.1

Absolute conPaid £2.99 for a booster pack. I used boosters on a level and the level was glitched so I couldn’t compete it and the boosters used were wasted. King refused to refund me and so did apple. I had screenshots and gave an accurate and detailed explanation of the issue. They didn’t want to know. Essentially I paid for something I couldn’t actually use. They make new levels without testing them properly. The most disappointing thing is apples lack of comprehension and support over the situation. Appealed the bots refund decision and the appeal bot refused too. No way to talk to an actual human. How many billions does apple make a month and they can’t let customers talk to another human. According to the refund policy on apple that’s it, they get to steal from me. What a bunch of jokers. Apple just get to keep their percentage and king get the rest. So I’ve removed any payment options from my account. Never getting a penny out of again. Modern day bandits.Version: 1.186.0.3

Fun but insane pricingThe game is fun but the prices are utterly insane. $2 at “50% off special” just to complete one level? Insane. I’m sure the company got rich off exploiting people’s addictive personality behaviours. If you are unable to control your addictive urges then avoid this game. You will probably have to sell your house within a month at the prices they charge..Version: 1.262.1.1

Pray your app doesn’t get a glitchThis game is a great way to spend your time. Please note my rating would be higher if not for the glitch I’ve gotten and the response I’ve gotten from King support. Around October 2021 an update allows me to play the game, but it somehow locked me out of the events, store, my gold, and even the King account. I can’t get in through Facebook or Google either. This is occurring on my phone and tablet, but not with my other King games. If I try to get into the store, it acts like it’s searching for an internet connection while never connecting, so I can’t make any purchases with my gold or even through the app. The events section looks like I’m playing off-line, not even allowing me to spin the daily wheel or connect with other players. When I try to connect to my account through King, Facebook, or Google, I get a “cannot connect to server” message. I sent an email to King support about the issue, explaining deleting/reinstalling didn’t help, the generic reply was to do the exact things I had tried to fix the issue myself with a note to reply if it didn’t work. The reply to their email was unanswered by King. Since I can’t get past the level I’m on without using a tool - which I used months ago - I have stopped playing this game. Go for the other Candy Crush games instead..Version: 1.227.0.2

No to exitedThis game is made just to drain your money I play each level for 30 times and up sometimes, jut because it requires me to pay money. Make it user friendly plz.Version: 1.164.0

Candy crush targets the walletHaving got disgruntled and left a couple of years ago, came back but getting frustrated, changes I don’t like can’t get lives from friends the community is blamed but I suspect foul play of course you have to pay for more lives...there are competitions/races but you aren’t competing with players at your level again it is frustrating because the games are by far easier at the lower levels... so not a level playing field... seems like greed has set in and yet I think that the revenues would rise with a better positive game experience. I have also held conversations with friends and colleagues that play this incredible game and had similar feedback...come on King make the interactive environment better and rule the world and I would bet on you increasing market share...who wouldn’t want that? SHAKMAN63.Version: 1.166.0.4

The actual gameplay is coolThe actual gameplay is cool, but wading through the 20 pop up screens after each level is not. I don’t care about my rankings compared to other players (bots) and I will never spend any actual money in this ever. Should have an option to disable all useless pop up info..Version: 1.222.0.2

ABSOLUTE DISGRASE!!!!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡1 - Glitches: I complete a level and then have to watch an ad, after the ads finished the screen goes black and I have to re-try the app. And when I get back into the game it says I have to redo the level!! This goes on for another seven or eight times and when the game finally decides it wants to work I barely earn anything when I finish the level because I’ve had to do it so many times. 2 - ads: Like so many other people have said… There’s a difference between ads and an insane amount of ads! not only do you have to watch an ad every five minutes but you also have to watch an ad after every game. It affects gameplay and I can barely ever enjoy the game!! 3 - Effort put into gameplay: Like any other connect game usually get a big bang or an explosion when you set off any of the extra adhesives like bombs or rockets or rainbows but in this game it’s just a tiny little pop. let alone if it glitches then it doesn’t blow up the right amount of candy. 4 - Prizes and rewards: Just yesterday, I earned two hours infinity of rainbows, then I logged off to go to the bathroom I came back and it said I had 30 minutes left seriously this game is a rip off do not get it. 5 - Other reviews: All the other of you say just about the same things but not in such a long context. Too much ads, too many glitches, not cool enough, not enough prizes, we all hear the same thing and it’s always from this game do not get Candy Crush Saga!!!!!!!.Version: 1.242.1.1

DéceptionJe suis très déçu des derniers changements ... surtout en ce temps de confinement ... il me semble tellement ridicule cette décision de changer le jeu de façon unilatérale me coupant des plaisirs que j’avais en en jouer depuis le début. Je suis au dernier niveau et j’attends chaque semaine la sortie des nouveaux niveaux et ce depuis plusieurs années ... entre temps je me ramasse des outils pour passer le temps. J’imagine eu ceci est une décision corporative et que dans les faits des milliers de personnes comme moi n’investissent pas dans votre jeu. Je suis triste et déçu ! Redonnez moi mon jeu comme il était svp c’est déjà difficile d’être confiné à la maison.. un peu de compassion serait grandement apprécié ... Hâte de voir le résultat de ce commentaire ! Je suis au bout du jeu et chaque semaine je dois attendre les nouveaux niveaux. Vous enlevez ce qui fait que le jeu est plaisant en attendant ... les 180 étoiles pour les goodies n’existent plus dommage. Je vais quitter le jeu ....Version: 1.174.0.2

Needs revampLike the game but getting fed up with the push to spend money on all the extras, they just pop up continually. Also why don’t we have the option to get out of candy Royale anymore, this is a waste of time…….Version: 1.266.0.3

Bring it backWhy did Candy Quests disappear??.Version: 1.153.0

Enjoyable gameI find the game itself entertaining and have been playing since it first kicked off many years ago. My issue with it these days is all the buttons you have to press just to start a game. I wanted to play a few quick rounds today, and before I could even start the first one, I needed to press FOURTEEN buttons (all game-related—join this comp, buy that, free whatever), then eight buttons before the next one, and six before my third game. I stopped playing after that because it became so annoying. It used to be that you had a few minutes to fill in, you clicked on play, and you started playing. Now there are all these hoops to jump through, and that’s what ends up filling those few minutes of time..Version: 1.254.2.1

If you love popups, ads and Kardashians then you found your game!Overall nice game, if you love clicking out of 8-15 popups on average then this is game for you! Well, on occasion (every time you update your phone or for no reason at all) your boosters that you’ve been collecting for weeks will disappear but that ok, just keep playing and collecting! One day something even better happened - opened game up and it was covered with Kardashian all over - fun! Well, I do think they bring me bad luck since difficult to pass levels already taking days at a time and with Kardashians all over its even more impossible and even more popups and sometimes even full screen videos that are hard to click out of - fun! But wait, just keep watching adds about puppy vaccinations (apparently they think I have puppy since I’m playing this game hmmm) or just watch ads about other games that apparently other people made thousands of dollars - wow! I need to rethink my life and career and get one of those money making games instead! They do have a tagline when game is loading something like “eliminate stress of today, play candy” - thank you for that reminder, let me just click out of 100s of popups, watch puppy vaccination videos 50 times, see Kardashians face all this time and don’t pass a single level because all my boosters are gone - what a relieve! 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️.Version: 1.212.0.1

I will be deleting the app - unfair gameplayThis is a note to the developers. - unsure if this is a bug (I hope so other it would be unfair game play). I have been an avid fan of candy crush for a few years now and constantly use it during my commutes. However since a recent update things have changed. For example i went into a game, didn’t get a chance to actually move any pieces yet when I received a phone call. When I went back to the game it wasn’t there anymore but I had lost a life. I hadn’t even started playing yet!! But meh I can get over that. What annoys me the most about the recent update is that I earned 3 levels of the spaceship boosters and had to stop playing midway due to the commute (can’t play and walk down the road), but when I went back the boosters were gone as if I’d lost the level...but I hadn’t finished the level yet and therefore haven’t lost it!! I feel this is unfair gameplay as you need to be aware that people have lives which mean we can’t all commit to finishing each level. Any other games that I play will reset the level as it was before if you can’t finish it. This is what candy crush used to do, and I really don’t know why you would do this. I’ll probably just delete the app if this isn’t resolved..Version: 1.133.0

Ridiculous levelsGame is not as fun as it used to be. free boosters or previewing a level without losing a life is no longer an option. it is pay to win and i’m not putting my money into a stupid game. as you get higher the levels become impossible to pass, it’s supposed to be challenging not impossible i don’t wanna spend three weeks trying to pass one level. will be deleting this game..Version: 1.180.0.1

Good but an utter ripoffSo obviously it's a world famous game and it's very fun to play - if you're here you've probably heard of this game and have likely even played it before. HOWEVER, the fact that you only get 5 lives per day, after which you literally can't play at all until you pay money to get new lives... well now that's pathetic. What kind of game doesn't allow you to play AT ALL unless you pay them money? This is more extortion than an add-on. If you're like me and not some wicked professional at candy crush, those 5 lives are enough until you reach your first hard level of the day and then forget about it. Either pay these greedy people money or come back tomorrow! Very disappointing, out of all the greedy tactics that games use, this is surely the most low down dirty one I've seen. If you wanna lie down on the couch at the end of a long day and switch your brain off, beware! They'll be forcing you to pay them within the hour!.Version: 1.222.0.2

CRAP!This game is crap it tells me all the moves and its suppost to be your choice it's soooo annoying FIX IT!.Version: 1.154.1

Used to be great, but..Candy Crush used to be a really fun and easy game, making it very addictive considering the satisfaction you got from winning. I took a few months off from playing the game, and decided to re-visit it a few days ago. I’m absolutely horrified how much the game has changed. It got ten times harder to beat even the ‘easy’ levels as well as becoming such a cash grab by making you pay to get more gold. What’s the point of the piggy bank as well? Instead of giving you the gold, it just goes the piggy bank then they make you lay to get it back! I’ve also noticed the game has became so much more complicated with all the events. There’s also so much more advertising for King’s other games and it’s really bugging me. I would not recommend downloading the game now that it has all these updates. I am absolutely shattered..Version: 1.203.0.2

Why are there so many pop ups?!Edit June ‘23: At first the app was having a glitch where if I watched an ad it would switch to portrait mode. Fine, I just won’t watch ads. Now I open the app it starts in landscape and then auto switches to portrait. I can’t get it stay in landscape. Great. 🙄 I don’t get it, only a small portion of the pop ups are for things to buy with real money. The rest of them are all in-game garbage like challenges, and friend requests, and races, and storylines no one cares about, and wheel spins, on and on and on with the pop ups. I have to close like 10 of them before I can even get to a level when I open the game, it’s absurd. Also there needs to be a way to stop friend requests. I’m assuming the ones I’m getting are some bot thing since I’m not linked in any way from Facebook or where-ever. I don’t care about friends and the stupid banner that you can’t push away and have to sit there and see “JESSE WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND!!!!!” is infuriating. But I do enjoy the game and deeply appreciate that there are no forced ads. I don‘t mind that the trade off is that high levels sometimes throw you an impossible-without-a-booster level. Boosters are easy enough to get for free either through the challenges/spins or ad-watching so it doesn’t bother me..Version: 1.254.2.1

Coming back after years of abstinenceI used to be a vivid Candy Crush player but then I decided to have a life. Now I’m back following a few years’ break. The game changed - it’s still candy crush but oh boy - all the things they’ve added. So far I’ve completed 25 levels but after I’ve finished each and every level, there are dragons that need to be fed, fairies harassing me for my name, UFOs full of boosters flying around, some creatures making me enter a competition with imaginary friends, pigs dropping golden bars, advertisements on getting more boosters and god only knows what else. There are chances that you will complete a level with fever taps than it takes to get to the next level. I get it, developers really need that extra $50 million dollars but stop harassing players this much. It’s hard to make sense of all those additions and they add nothing of value.Version: 1.125.1
