While I appreciate the new levels...... they are too difficult for me. I feel like I am limping through with no incentive to continue. Not willing to spend any more money for helps...I usually end up spending hours and days trying to complete a level and move forward. Recently, I deleted Soda and can honestly say that I am considering deleting Jelly...sadly. So I would like to suggest that some levels should be easy to complete before the Hard and Super Hard levels appear. The daily bonus is not daily when there is no bonus on the first day. Also, thank your players from time to time. We support you and quite honestly....we don't hear from you. I wrote this review some time ago. The regular levels are still more than difficult...only once in awhile is there something that I beat on the first try. Also, your daily bonus has not been fixed...it’s time for an update. Now, I don’t usually see the daily bonus and out of 7 days you still only get 6. On the plus side though, you do thank your players by giving them extra playing time and that is appreciated.
Best of Candy crush
Out of all the Candy Crush games, this one is by far the best however, there is still WAY too much of a push to make in app purchases. There are far too many pop ups while playing the game, so you have to find patience. I have spent earned coins I didn’t intend to, or spent a “cheat” I didn’t want to use. I am level 800 and beat it twice, but the game won’t let me progress. This has happened before in other levels. I do see some repetitive levels, however when added in later levels, there is some added difficulty, so I’m fine with that.
Right now I’m a bit irritated not being able to progress in the game...hopefully if I don’t play for the day, it will correct itself.
If I had a wish, I’d like the cheats to be a little more free like in the Soda version...in that version you tend to get more freebies more often, including 2hr gems and lives, which is a plus. I find that game to be my go to when this one is acting up, or my lives run out.
Glitch on level 1334
In case you weren’t aware...dropped the monkling below the rope and he just sat there for the rest of that game. Didn’t allow me to move on in the game.
My former Eval: I enjoy Jelly Crush as evidenced by the level I’ve achieved. The app updated overnight and while there were new “booster gifts” it was immediately obvious that the level I was on had been modified to be more difficult and it appears unachievable without using multiple boosters. If you’re going to introduce more challenging levels requiring boosters, those should be brand new levels. Just irritating which is not my goal in playing this game.
UPDATE: It appears this level is back close to what it was prior to the last update. Whether it was just a fluke or a response to my review, I’m glad to be playing again. Thanks.
Effing Liars Just after your $$
Oh where to start?
You're on a level you've been trying to beat for awhile. You're almost there, and come to the end and you need just a couple more moves--you're gonna get 9 gold bars from your pot to continue-- and up pops 'We're sorry, couldn't connect to the internet!', but you're showing bars and wifi and notifications are steadily coming in! LIARS! I DIDN'T EVEN NEED TO BUY bars; they were already in my account.
Here's another example: ERRORS. BUGS. Which isn't cool when you're playing in a time-rated tournament and it's showing you've completed 4/3 (already enough) items: fluffers, whatever- to proceed to the last 2 levels of the tournament...but no. Let's error out. So you try rebooting. Double check the connections, but it's not YOUR DEVICE.
THEN THERE'S THIS: So you've earned ALL THESE STARS by scoring high, right? The stars you've earned are collected and put in a piggy bank for you...Which you have to BUY if you want them @$2.99.
Yeah. No thank-you.
Last but not least, today I had earned DOZENS of lollipops; striped, sprinkles, etc. which I earned playing on the rainbow road. So this afternoon I pop back in to play and *All But ONE* of those WINNING were gone! I'm DONE. Not wasting anymore time or $$ on any of KING games.
Andiamo hasta la Vista -- ciao, I'm outta here bye I'll put my money on Pokémon...at least they give me what I've EARNED...for FREE.
Almost a 5
Candy Crush is a blast! I love playing, though I find I take it in spurts and sometimes need to take a break and come back to it in order to fully enjoy it. It's even better now that there are side maps and challenges "off the beaten path". I do wish that it would let you play a full 5 games on a side path and the still have a full 5 games to play on the regular map the way that Farm Heroes does, it I think it may be the only King game that does that. Overall I waste far too many hours playing - which I suppose in itself says great things about it! But I wouldn't recommend playing on a day when you have important things you should be doing...it's far too much fun!
Whose bright idea was the latest update?
This is the only game I play often, so I’m acutely aware of any new changes. A while back they started including the “Help Allen get airborne” reminder at the start of EVERY game, which is really irritating (because, come on, don’t you know that if I’m playing, I’m already TRYING to pass the level???), but this latest update about a week ago has me even more upset. There used to be special side games where I could earn power ups for passing each level, but since the new update, if I’ve completed these levels previously, I cannot do them again. Now I have NO means of earning power ups! And whose bright idea was it to allow us to earn gold bars, but then have to pay to actually obtain those gold bars? NOT COOL GAME DEVELOPERS! Give us back the opportunities that you took away, and maybe more people will keep playing.
I’m on level 385, a hard level involving collecting monklings, and after i get a monkling under the line, it doesn’t send me back up to the top so I can get another one. It’s not that I have another one waiting up there that just got caught up along the way, it just stays stuck at the bottom of the playing area and still lets me move but doesn’t let me progress. As if this game wasn’t infuriating enough, and to be honest I can’t even explain why I still play it considering what it does to my mental state, this nonsense is really the icing on a cake of complete anger and frustration. I probably could have beat this level 3 times over if this wasn’t a recurring issue, and been content with my normal level of game induced mental instability, but no. This level really had to do me dirty like that
More fun than I thought
By OMG LOVE IT!!!!!
This game I thought was going to be a more repetitive game like the others, but I wasn’t any where close. This game has you thinking more about your moves than before because you get to release things and you go up against jelly queens and cupcake men. You’re actually matching candies to gain more and see more. The reward is more intriguing, fun, and worth my time. I wish it had more of a story line and remand features like Soda Crush! And I think the whole needing someone to unlock a level or world shouldn’t exist because people look at that and say nope.I almost didn’t play because of that but fell in love either way!
Playing against the computer
Take everything annoying from the other versions of Candy Crush and add having to play against the computerized character every few levels. There are a few fun levels, but it's mostly frustration. Only one of my FB friends is bothering to play. It means more waiting for lives and getting to the next zone a 3 day long wait. There isn't any way I'm going to reward this frustration by giving it money. The fact that the game tends to go to a black screen at least once every few games does nothing to endear me to it. I play many games and this is the only one that does that.
Update: I decided to give this game another shot and not only did it crash my device, it required a hard reset to fix the black screen. Never again.
King jelly’s / Queen jelly
Well I do love playing. The only one negative issue I have with the stars is I’ll pass / complete it at least it says sugar crush and all the pink square jelly’s will come flouting down but when I go to check it will not have given me the star and then makes me play the same board over again , I also checked to see if my WiFi was working and made sure I was connected to my internet service....... dose anyone else have this issue ? Wouldn’t matter if the stars weren’t needed but they are after you hit a certain level. You have to get all 3 stars on each and every game .
New daily bonuses
While I appreciate the new daily bonuses it doesn’t make since that they are for 120 minutes and you only have 5 lives to use them in. It usually only takes about 20 minutes to use these up and then it takes 30 minutes to get a new life?? By then the bonus is done😕 I also agree the levels are extremely difficult between the hard and super hard levels that you could utilize some of these bonuses more if these levels were a little less difficult in between. But overall I love this game it’s super fun and addictive!
I have been playing this for about two weeks now and it’s a decent game, BUT it’s a lot more difficult than the previous Candy Crush installments. It’s obvious that all of these games along with every other freemium game out there that’s trying to make money off of some poor sucker. If you wanna spend money on this, it’s your money and your business. I’ve seen from several different reviews that if a person spends money on any of these games, they become exponentially more difficult. Just keep that in mind. Me personally, I’ve never spent money on it and never will.
I fell in love with the game when it first came out. And then got stuck for ages on one level- I left the game and just recently got back into it. But I'm not paying $2.99 to convert my hard-earned stars into gold bars. That's just wrong and mean. I get that gold needs to be purchased, but you make it sound like getting enough stars would automatically turn those into gold. Should know better: if it's too good to be true, it is. 5 stars for the concept, 1 star for having to pay for everything and the lame "power ups" you get from the daily bonus- which I believe should last more than a week before resetting!
In the special game in game where you have to save misty I have collected the 2 pufflers needed to melt the frosting but it will not melt/allow me to play the next level. Then when I go back to main game it pops up that I’ve collected enough pufflers to continue.. it is showing 2/2 collected-just not melting the frosting so I can continue.
I’ve been playing CC for a while and this is the only issue I’ve encountered so ultimately give 4 stars for the app but whether it’s the recent update or a glitch for everyone or for my level- idk. Please fix this.
Daily bonus changes
By T DeVicchio
This used to be, by far, my favorite game. Now that you have changed your daily bonus to match your soda crush game I will probably delete this one as well. Fifteen minutes of the fish, rather than giving a fish. Thirty minutes of something else the next day, but hey, if you run out of lives during those 30 minutes it’s gone.
I’m sure you were making a profit the old way, stop being greedy on every game. Bring the old bonus back, I will check in periodically to see.
While I’m at it, there is a bug in your app. On the iPhone X you cannot easily swipe out of the game. It takes multiple attempts to exit.
Money making scam
I used to enjoy this game but I have found out that all the “Crush” games are just money making scams. Once you have spent money the levels get harder and harder to win. It becomes a battle of wills to see how long you can put up with trying to beat the same level or spend more money. Even the easy levels are impossible to win. I am on level 1360 in jelly crush. This is no longer a matter of skill. I just have to wait to see if the game will give me any moves to make it possible to win. And forget trying to wake Odus, it’s never going to happen. These games are just to frustrating to play anymore.
Better than Candy Crush original, not as good as Soda
Queen/Cupcake Carl/Licorice Larry levels are frustrating in a way that is not fun. Passing them is mostly a matter of luck. If they removed or fixed these levels, the game would be OK. I get stuck on one of these levels, and I really don't feel like playing it anymore.
Sometimes on the boss levels, there is literally no move to make that makes any progress at all. There is no strategy to use and no way to plan for a future turn because the boss will mess up whatever you're trying to do. You have to rely on a lucky configuration of candies falling several times in a row in order to pass the level. All luck, slim chance, no fun.
And it's unfortunate because the other levels are pretty good. There are some nice new twists added to this game that weren't in previous versions. If they'd get rid of or fix the boss levels, this game would be great.
As it is, I'm going to have to switch back to Soda.
Fun but frustrating....but still fun!
Addicting game. It’s colorful, challenging, fun, and hard enough to keep your mind busy. I think it’s more fun than regular Candy Crush. Some musical options would be a cool feature to offer. The same music over and over can be a bit irritating. There should be a choice of Soundtrack. With possibly 3 musical choices. Some concentrate better with slow, quiet, meditative music, others more bouncy, rock music. It’s fun to have choices. Otherwise great game and I love the encouraging words as you play.
Love hate relationship
I loved the game and played until it either became too difficult to play and you got stuck on levels for days or you had to pay to play. I refuse to spend money on apps. Thus I give up. The game decides if you win or not. Not how well you know how to play. The game use to be fun. Quickly turns into a money scam to play once you’ve reached a certain point.
Some of the purchase ads are a bit obnoxious. They literally encourage an opps purchase. I’ve literally refuted a few charges because of the pushy ads encouraging an opps purchase.
Thank you for the hours of fun until it became slow to play.
By Ravioli Roy
This is the game that Superman plays in The Fortress of
Solitude when he goes to get a little work done. Because he gets older (demonstrably), because he is a celeb and feels he owes it to his public, because it has to be done with carefully sheathed Kryptonite scalpels. But this is about Candy Crush, which so thoroughly satisfies that little bit of Asperger’s in all of us! Even Superman. Long Live the Jelly Queen (that cheater)! Have I got the right game here? Where am I? What time is it? JELLY TIME!
Worst of Candy Crush
Of all three main versions of Candy Crush, this one is by far the most frustrating. Not only is it incredibly hard to progress even at low levels (I've been stuck on level 110 for months now), but also there are way too many traps to make you accidentally spend money. It takes forever to earn those stupid gold bricks you need to purchase anything so you’ll just have to pay with real money if you want to do anything that will require bricks. I pretty much only play this to kill time after I use up lives in other, better match three games at this point. Super disappointing.
Slow? Reinstall to fix
Gameplay used to be smooth and quick like Candy Crush Soda. Something happened and it's now slooooowwwwww. Too slow to play. So frustrating. Had to delete it... UPDATE: Just to see if it'd help I downloaded it again, right after deleting and posting my review. Guess what? Gameplay is back to normal. So if your game is going horribly slow, try deleting and reinstalling. What a long wasted time, though, playing in molasses. Not the flavor of candy I like. Glad it's working right again... for now.
Editing to say that whatever happened during the last update or so, the candies fall too slow and I can’t stand it. It’s like bad zen or something. Ha! Seriously, it’s a fun game, but I can’t play more than two minutes now. The slow fall is making me bonkers.
As with all the other Candy Crush style games, this one provides hours of mindless entertainment. Fun, challenging, and - well - mindless. Nice little twists to change it up from their other games. Worth the download.
There’s obviously a catch in the game, and that’s NOT GOOD!
Been stuck on level 1219 for months now. It’s especially obvious in this level, but I’ve seen it on many other levels, too.
The game is designed to make you spend money in order to get past certain levels. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten to the last move, made it, and then the one jelly that you need to drop, will drop. Your option is to spend coins to finish the level, or start over.
On level 1219, you activate a fish and it attacks a jelly that has no bearing on helping you finish the level. Sure enough, I get to the last monkling and lo and behold, I get a drop that will finish the board but I’m out of moves.
This game touches on fraud in that it makes you spend money to finish it. I’m done playing this because I don’t support dishonest people or organizations.
My advice to others: don’t spend a dime on this game!
