They might look innocent…


Candy Crush Saga is a video game originally made for Facebook, it was released on April 12, 2012 and then on November 14, 2012 for smartphones. They hit us hard with our addiction and it became the most downloaded app last year.

Candy Crush is kind of like the modern version of the Rubiks Cube crossed with Tetris with a few jelly type sweets thrown in for colourful measure.


Your aim is to line up the same candy (be it a jelly or sweet) so that they vanish and leave you more space to match more jellies to get rid of obviously this gets more difficult the more of levels you complete. It’s all very Krypton Factor.


Target score: The player is given a set number of moves and must meet the minimum score before running out of moves.

Jelly: Some of the squares on the board are encased in “jelly”. The player must match the candies on top of the jelly to eliminate one or two layers of it from the board using a set number of moves.

Ingredients: Special unmatchable game pieces (cherries and onions or acorns) appear on the board. The player must clear the pieces beneath them, collapsing the pieces down, and to get them to a delivery point using a set number of moves. A menu appears on screen to tell the player how many ingredients are needed to win the game.

Timed: The player must meet the minimum score within a set time limit. Special pieces appear on the board to add time to the clock.
Objectives: The player must collect a specific number of colored candies, special candies, or special candy combinations using a set number of moves.


Go on, give it a go… but don’t come crying to us when you havent seen the light of day for three weeks because you can’t get passed level 33 (we really can’t, why can’t we!)
