Previous Review Deleted. Let’s try again.
My previous review was deleted due to my usage of some strong language. Let’s do this again. I am an avid fan of this game. I’ve been playing since 2015 and am on level 2067. This most recent update is highly displeasing. One of my favorite parts of this game was the “quest” aspect, which allowed you to earn rewards upon the completion of certain tasks. Now, the quests have been removed in favor of the team based “Mr. Toffee’s Fair”. My teammates are quite frankly, useless and are holding back my gameplay. I see no reason for a forced team aspect in this single player game. I didn’t join Candy Crush to make friends; that’s ridiculous. Finally, my main problem with this new update is the addition of ads. I do not want to sit through a 30 second long ad for the most recent pillage the village style game in the App Store. This is a racket, and it’s despicable. Bring back my quests. Axe Mr. Toffee. I will not be playing until things change. -A long time fan

Great game but..
This game is very addictive and pleasing to play, but lately it has been frustrating to play as it adds on more complexity. For one, the animation sequences are way too excessive. There are a mere five animations for the race in which each one literally serves the same purpose as the other; it is unnecessary and long. The unskippable animations, in addition to the golden tickets that the user can’t skip or deactivate hence forcing us to have to wait the long seconds it takes to change each reward hour into 2 hours; things like these just stack up and make the gameplay unsatisfying. Either the animations are cut down, or let the user skip them through with a tap . Another thing I want to mention is the fish ai that shouldnt really prioritize eating special candy. I would leave those for better combos just to have it activated by a stupid ai fish and end up losing a heart. The worst thing is, I dont know if I’m just stupid, but most of the levels that are “hard” just become unplayable without bonuses or watching ads. I used to enjoy having a streak of not buying extra moves and never using bonuses, but nowadays I would play the same lever over and over again, never be able to beat it, and end up having it beaten simply by using my special candy or extra moves. This game was simple and fun before, but now It’s become an over-animated frustrating gaming experience that begs for users to watch ads and buy in-game content.

Frustrating
Definitely a love/STRONG INTENSE HATE relationship. I can’t tell you how many times I have made a move that would almost ensure my “beating” a level and the game “freezes”, causing me to exit out of the app entirely; resulting in me losing my “candy streak” and having to forfeit other things I have achieved because of this “malfunction”. I also despise that you are REQUIRED to “race” against other players! There should at least be an opt out mode where this is not always necessary. With the other candy crush saga games there are also options where you don’t have to watch the ENTIRE REST OF THE GAME complete itself AFTER you have already beaten the game! There have also been countless COUNTLESS “prizes” that I have been awarded that I have never received through this app. The other games also give you the OPTION to watch an ad to get whatever reward. This game while it doesn’t provide this option, forces you to waste 20 seconds of your life every 5 or 6 levels to watch an in app “ad” that you can not get out of. It’s so incredibly frustrating. And they have also strategically moved the “exit” button on these in-app-ads to encourage a button push to actually purchase whatever it is they are marketing. It’s sneaky and backhanded especially if I were to let my child play! Many positive things about it but soooooo many more negative things. Please fix these issues.

Was fun until the “glitches” kicked in.
This game was fun like the other Candy Crush for a while. The issue I have is that these glitches (or possibly cheating) kick in to get you to spend money. I would buy more gold bars if the game was more fair to get past a tough level (and I have). What happens more often than not now is you will get or make a candy cluster. The game always tries to get you to use it right away by suggesting a move with it. I will painstakingly get a striped, marble-looking, or wrapper exploding type candy to be next to the cluster. I will do so and the cluster will explode on its own without me getting a chance to combine it with the other candy. To make it worse it blows up regular candy of the least present color. I know that some moves cause a chain reaction, this is not the case here. It does this 9 out of 10 times especially if I am trying to position 2 clusters together or a marble and a cluster (both of which typically clear the board in 1 move). The first couple/ few times I thought oh I imagined that, or there had to be a match or chain reaction I didn’t see. That wasn’t it. Now it keeps getting more and more frequent. It really does it towards the end of your moves to again get that money spent. Shame bc it is a good game otherwise that is worth spending a bit of cash on. When you cheat, why would I give you money?

Very Disappointed
I’ve been playing this game since I retired. I’m also helping my grandson learn how to play. I definitely do not consider myself as a gamer and do not have the monetary means to purchase additional boosters to win. I have reached over the 2000 level simply using using the free lollipop hammer, color bombs, jelly fish, etc., and other free boosters provided by the App. I’m very disappointed with the following items: *1) I received two messages labeled as the Soda Circuit, which said... “Winning isn’t easy! But, you got the experience to be faster next time!” Thank goodness that these messages were not sent while my Grandson was playing with me. I felt that I was being shamed for lacking skills *2) I had accumulated over 365 days of playing this app. I thought I played every day, but I must have missed a day. I had to pick up working with my grandson to complete his online school work when the schools were closed for the coronavirus. My daughter is an RN and was working a lot of overtime. *3) Is there an option not to be part of a race? Since I do not have many boosters, I’m usually “last” in completing the race. However, I do like playing Mr, Toffee’s Fair to win boosters. Note, I do have other Candy Crush apps, but I hope you consider my thoughts above that I’m just playing for FUN.

Becoming tedious
4/7/24 The developer is still messing with the players making it overly difficult to pass a level as in PAY FOR PLAY. Sometimes it’s ok, but they will jerk you around by having the last level before the finish be seemingly normal but actually hard or super hard. Just stop it. I’m getting to the point where I no longer care if I play because I’m being jerked around. Previous:The ratings for this game may be a bit deceptive because I notice my previous negative rating has been removed. The game has too many hard and super hard levels, making it impossible to earn any of the free helps that can get you past it. I don’t know exactly what makes the developer think getting you stuck for days is fun, because it’s not. For instance in one of the side games that you can earn some helps, they continually give you objectives of passing levels, passing level hard levels with three stars, or gold tickets which you can’t get if you’re stuck on a super hard level and I think the developer needs to definitely be slapped back for doing that. When it becomes all about the developer getting money as opposed to having an enjoyable game then the game becomes, as I said, just plain tedious. I’m getting to the point I don’t even care about keeping up my daily streaks.

Quick easy changes that will make me rate it 5 stars
I love all 4 of the candy crush games Saga, Soda, Jelly and now friends. I have noticed with this Soda (which is my absolute favorite out of all of them) will not allow you to skip the animations when the level is complete and is counting your score up as well showing your bonuses. This would be a big help when trying to knock out a couple levels when your at work on breaks. I have put quite a bit of money and hours into this game and i do not mind at all. It is worth it to keep me happy. I love the infinite lives and bonus moves for the levels and that you give us free gifts for log ins and just as events. This gives the people who do not want to spend on games the opportunity to advance and win extra goodies as well! A lot of other games are not as generous as you with the paid for content. So thank you for the fantastic games and keep them coming. All i request is the opportunity to tap the screen to skip the all animations i have a short attention span so lose interest when you get 4 or more in a row. You have this feature with Jelly and friends. Can we get it on saga and soda please? Thank you and keep up the great work!

Significant drop off in quality
I love all things candy crush, but recently i’ve been noticing a ton of problems with the way the game has changed for the worse. It’s very clear that the developer of this game is doing everything in their power to squeeze every bit of money they can from every part of this game. No longer can you play this game for long periods of time because there are levels designed to be borderline unwinnable so you have to use in game currency or ads to pass it. I don’t know who decided that actively aggravating their player base was a good idea, but whoever made that decision should be slapped. Easy levels are now extremely difficult at times, with the developer giving the player fewer moves and more obstacles. Yes, every game needs hardship, but with the endless expanse of levels in this game and only giving five lives, it’s clear the developer is just trying to prod you into spending money. I remember when this game was extremely simple. It was better then than it is now. Too many complexities and other aspects that are just too pointless to use. Extremely disappointed with how the people running this game have decided to take an anti-player stance. Do not recommend getting this game as there are better games out there that don’t manipulate you into spending money.

Fun till it’s not
I’m on level 286, and have been for the last 2 or 3 weeks. I open the game, promptly lose all my lives on this level, and close it. Rinse and repeat every darn day. I’ve used all my boosters, used all my gold for extra moves and still I’m on level 286. I spend money on games, I’m not opposed. But I won’t spend money if that’s the only way I can beat a level. I pay to enhance my games, sometimes I pay to even get the games, but I will not pay to win your silly little match game. I don’t even mind playing a level over and over and over until the algorithm determines I’ve played enough times to get a win. But this has been ridiculous and borderline insane. I’ve wasted almost 100 lives on a single level. ONE HUNDRED LIVES ON A SINGLE LEVEL. Don’t try to tell me that isn’t a blatant money grab. Keep your game, I’m gonna go spend my money with a different developer, and my next step after submitting this review will be to delete this game. I realize I don’t matter- plenty of people are willing to pay .99 to beat a level. But there are also lots of people who won’t, this review is for them. You’ll be able to play for awhile, but this is flat out a pay to win money grab. It’s popularity doesn’t negate that simple fact.

Wow candy crush soda changed
I’m an old school fan candy crush soda, and Years ago My first review of this games was five ⭐️ what changed ? Personally I’m surprised nobody talks about this situation but candy crush soda turned a 180 it became extremely boring. Sorry but it’s true It from being the best candy crush game to the worst. They completely destroyed the old map’s design, the old map and world that drawn the players to have an adventure in a fantasy candy soda world to see NPCs each specking to you to going through portals and a lot more it’s all gone. The new revamp game is so underwhelming and boring it isn’t even a map at all. Too the creator of this special game the vibe just doesn’t feel the same it just makes the game discouraging and unplayable it isn’t just the same of what it use to be. What players loved and what made the game so special to begin with I don’t like it at all and so many people in community don’t like it ether I get they wanted to try something new with the game but it kinda comes across as an insult to the players that been there form the start in its former glory. I really hope they bring back or remake the story and the old maps but if they keep this one screen world I’m afraid me and many other players can’t play the game anymore it isn’t the same as it use to be.

Unfair business practice
I have lost progress to this game twice, the first time I hadn’t reached but to level 300 or so! I got a new phone the phone did not recover my contacts ect. I had to enter manually contacts as they called. Thought I had to restart everything so I started with fb. (That’s where I save my games) I was able to recover most of my games with the exception of my contacts and candy crush soda saga. When I attached soda saga to fb it picked up my new profile and started me back at level 1. I almost lost my father 6 months ago and I am his caretaker so I am in a lot of waiting rooms. I chose to start over thought it was funny at the time me playing against myself for highest score. My second go around I have made purchases to reach level 1900 or so. The most recent 4 days ago. Soda saga completed an update in the same time frame asked for my acceptance and password. The keyboard that appeared did not give access to the characters needed to complete my password. So I went through fb, using my second profile it picked up my first profile. So now I am back at level 330 and playing myself again for highest score. All moneys spent for the past 6 months is gone. I’ve been waiting for a response from soda saga to resolve this issue. Nothing yet!! Fixing to let everyone know how disappointed I am!

Becomes impossible after level 3500
While I appreciate the game designers need to provide and ever-escalating level of challenge, this game reached a tipping point for me after around level 3500 where the frustration outweighed the pleasure of the game. If I’ve reached close to level 4000 on both Crushes, then I’m by no means a novice player. But there ceases to be any fun in playing a level 12,15,20 times, knowing that the level remains impossible to beat even with the best combination of boosters, and in the end it’s just waiting for dumb luck to provide the right combination to get the level defeated. I’ve never hollered at a game before this one. I finally deleted the app out of disgust. And let’s talk about the 30-40 second long ads every time I re-start the level and want an extra booster, or want a play extension at the end. I don’t need another widget or pair of waterproof pants. I began to perceive that the game existed only to generate ad revenue for the game developers. Which is fine in moderation given that it’s a free game. But when I’ve had to sit through ten minutes of ads in playing twenty levels, it begins to become TOO much.

Kimmys Arcade
I FINALLY just got kimmys arcade and am in LOVE with this feature!! I’ve been playing for years and this is by far my favorite!! Truly increased my rating for sure! I play just to play kimmys arcade!🤩🤩 My only gripe is I should be able to cash in my gold tickets for something. I will NOT spend money on this game, however I earn thousands of useless tickets that I’m unable to cash in or redeem! That doesn’t make sense 🤔🤔 AND on rainbow road when I have my consecutive bonus running I do not receive my double fish that I should on tier 3 and after on rainbow road which is VERY DISAPPOINTING. Also, the fish do not go to the proper place when necessary. There’s been many times when I could have beaten the level on my last move had the fish gone to the right place!! 😡😡😡

Gameplay hindered on purpose
So I really enjoy playing the game, however, I’m rating it low because I’ve noticed that during the game when there are chocolates and gum that reappear if you don’t continuously pop them until they are completely gone, they prevent you from moving your pieces while the letters show up that say “sodalicious” or “divine” after you make a major move to “praise” you for the move. Which is ironic because if you have any chocolate or gum and you have one move to completely remove it, they prevent you from making said move while those words show up until they’re gone, so another piece will come up. Then, you’ll have to make one more extra move than you did before because they wouldn’t let you move while you had the chance during their digital word show. So that’s super aggravating and it is not fair. It’ll make you lose a game in some instances since you don’t have an unlimited amount of moves. Honest game play goes a long way especially for your ratings guys and I’m the type that will uninstall if it becomes a constant issue.

Consider this first before downloading!
Do NOT download this game until you read the following. I want you to find your wallet, your purse, your piggy bank, wherever you keep your valuables in such as your money or your credit card. Once you find it, dig in there and pull out exactly 10 dollars. Go outside and find sticks to make a camp fire. Go get a lighter or a match and light the sticks. Once a fire has been made, put all 10 bucks in the fire and start thinking about how everything in your life went wrong and how you got to this moment. After you’re done crying or something like that, go put out the fire and collect all of the ashes. Once you collected all of the ashes, find lemon, lime juice or both, salt, and a small strainer and put them all in the strainer, let that soak for 10 minutes. Once the timer is up, make 2 small pieces of that goop that used to be your money and cram it in your eyes, get it deep in there. You did it! You managed to use that money without giving it to these cyber burglars who cheat on you when you buy something or watch an ad. In addition to that, you had the most fun you could ever have with Candy Crush Soda Saga.

Things have changed, idk if I like them :1
I, like many people, enjoy being entertained by games like this. You have levels you can traverse, things you can interact with, and it’s all generally quite fun. However, last I played this game was about a year ago and things have changed since then. For one, the design of the level badges. They’re square now instead of circular, and I liked the old design better. This is something I can live with though, so I’m not counting it as a complaint. My second issue is the backgrounds. I loved all the scenery when playing the old version of this game, but it doesn’t seem to change here. However, I may just not be high enough leveled yet to make it change, so take my words with a grain of salt. All in all, I still love playing this game. It’s fun, bright and colorful, and I would give it five stars in a heartbeat if this were my first time playing. Thank you if you actually read this far, I appreciate it :)

This game crashes ALOT. Frustrating /:
When I am able to play this game it is fun and challenging. It is really annoying when I am near completion of a level and/or have just used my special extra tools, or have purchased extra moves/tools on a level and then the game kicks me out and I have to start all over. It feels like the “glitches” very frequently happen in these instances. Initially I did spend some $ to make purchases in game but I quickly came to realize that due to the glitches that shut me out frequently, it is not worth spending any extra money to buy things in game. Now I play until I get to the point where the getting kicked out gets annoying and then it dissuades me from having fun and I don’t play the game for a long time. I hope that someone works out the glitchy-ness so the crashing/kicking me out of issue is resolved. In concept, and when it is working, I really enjoy this game. The crashing is very, very sucky though. I am not going to provide my email address or Facebook information to be able to save progress.

Game crashes.
I’m tired of being in the middle of a level and the game crashes. It seems to do this when I am doing well and after I have played a few levels. The app is updated. When this happens if I’m using any boosters and the game crashes I lose the boosters I chose. It’s almost as if it’s set up for the game to crash so we have to use more boosters and pay to get more or buy gold bars. I’m limited on what games I can play because I’m epileptic. I was playing candy crush saga, I was around level 3000, my profile picture got changed which I didn’t change it. I tried to change it back to what I had it as but wasn’t able to. Updated the app I lost all my levels and where I was on the weekly challenge. I had this issue before of which was fixed but was told I needed to start over which is what the game did. I told whom ever I talked to I didn’t work to get to level 3000 to start over again and work back to where I was because they said they can’t do anything!!! It’s all about money!!!

Pls fix the crashing
This game is so great! I’ve been playing it for forever and it’s so fun!! You don’t have to pay for power ups or gold bars, you can win them which I think is super unique and helpful! Money hungry, yes, but not as much as the other King games. The only problem I’m having is it crashes at very specific, annoying moments. it always happens when I’ve either already finished the level and it’s going through the last moves or when I’m just about to beat the level. Get this! Once it crashes, it thinks I lost the level and I have to start all over. Soooo frustrating especially when I already beat the level. I lose my rainbow streak when it wasn’t even my fault. This never seems to happen when I lose levels or whenever I’m clearly losing. It’s ridiculous. Some part of me thinks it’s on purpose. Anyway yes this game is fantastic, definitely one of my favorites, but the crashing is almost enough for me to completely delete the game. It’s so frustrating.

addicting but some things must change for fairness
I love this game . been playing it forever. theres that one time I took a all I title hiatus for about two years from candy crush(original) because the level was just too hard to beat and I wasnt spending a penny on extra moves . anyways, the number one thing that grids my gears is when u exit in the middle of playing a level it asks u so many times if " your sure u want to give up" however when u get those gold bars and the game is over and u accidentally press the buy lives with gold bars it automatically takes the bars instead of confirming if thats what we really want . that needs to change immediately especially because ive been playing so long with thoughts of maybe it will change but it hasn't. please fix that. also if we get two hours of things it should let us decide when we want to use our two hours because if I'm playing at 3.am and fall asleep for work I missed those two hours , get me ? LOL but overall, addicting and I love it .

Crashes mid game constantly!!! Don't get!
I'm so po'd writing this! I deleted candy crush soda for this VERY REASON! I think after the money I have did n shelled out for this two f'ing games I have every right to trash it! I have never had a game that crashes in the middle of every single hard level I've been on and winning or just won and waiting on it to do is little thing at the end and then crash n I go back in to see I not only have to redo the level but I've completely lost my streak with it, and I've been on levels for DAYS and finally spent the money on the stupid deals. I will NEVER and I repeat NEVER give you another single dang dollar of my hard earned cash agsin. Deleting all of them and deleting them for good, I think this is done on purpose by the developers. It all comes down to money. The game is no longer fun. You have extremely easy boring levels and then next to impossible to beat without spending money levels. After YEARS of this game and deleting it in the past I can safely say this time it's forever. Idc if they make it completely free with all the boosters in the world. I'm done. 😡

Glitches Ruined My 93 Days Login Streak
I played this game for a very long time (as you can tell from the streak). I really enjoy it. However, after I managed to play it yesterday morning, I came back to find I was unconnected from Facebook. No problem, I was used to this and tried to reconnect. It got stuck for the rest of that day and this morning in an endless cycle of checking WiFi and “Failed to connect” messages. I couldn’t even get into the game because it kept repeating those messages and trying to connect even after I restarted my phone and closed the app completely. I thought it would fix overnight, but it didn’t. With the app in such an awful state, I did the only thing I could think to do and deleted it off my phone before redownloading it. Not only did this not fix the problem, it also completely erased my 93 day streak and has made me feel very opposed to even trying to get back into the game when it decides to glitch out and be the reason I lose what I’ve worked hard to get. It also got rid of my boosters. I would have rated this app well if you’d talked to me two days ago, but now I’m furious.

Not a lot of fun.
Sorry to say this but I didn’t care much for this game. This is the second time I have tried it and the second time I will delete it. Why? Well, here’s the thing. They have special weapons that don’t really do much. You use one to get through some “frosting” pieces but it doesn’t get through it so you use another and another until all of them are used only to find that you aren’t much further than you started. If you have only one move and you use one to help it will go everywhere but that area. I used 13 of the satellite bombs and not one of them went anywhere near the area I needed. At first I said to myself just a fluke but after 13 I call bull. Seems to me that if you pay for the weapons they should do something to help. I have had the same level played over and over by me and several other people that can’t win it. The only thing I could do was buy (real money) weapons so I did and still nothing. Sorry, but a game that costs you money to play over and over isn’t for me.

Pretty good but...
Very fun and cleverly thought out. BUT...really wish there was a prize wheel too. Some levels seem impossible but the more you play that level, the easier it becomes - like it's all pre-arranged, which is kinda disheartening. Also, it would be cool if you ended a level with a Color Bomb or striped candy, that it would go into a "bank" of extras you could use later. Nothing worse than feeling that treat you just earned was for nothing! Would also appreciate Bubblegum Hill being offered more often and for a longer, more consistent period and not on a random basis. Many times I open the game and Bubblegum only has a couple of hours left, even though I've played within the 24 period that it implies it's been active but it didn't show up! I even exit out of the game to see if it's going to appear but it doesn't always. Overall, a fun, addictive game. Just know that it's a game of luck, not skill.

AI in this version is horrible. Ignores obvious targets to force ads
The AI in this one is really dumbed down. For example when you use the fish, they never target something you need. Instead they will target random licorice. Random ice blocks. Anything but the path you need to clear. The only way they will make a correct choice is if your have two or more on the screen at once. It ignores bubbles that you need to float as well as the path they need to take, targeting pointless random targets. They ignore ice with bears under it for ice that doesn’t. All of this to get you to watch ads. Even worse, the ads are full of click bait. They show an ‘x’ which brings you to the App Store. You close that by clicking the X, and back to the App Store you go. It usually takes three times of this before you can close an ad. They also hide the ‘X’ in white sections or make it so tiny and off to the side it’s difficult to click with a case on the phone. Just a bad experience compared to Candy Crush SagA.

Play on button should be taken away or moved!!
I’ve been playing this game for a long time and continue to get frustrated that the stupid “play on” button is right where normal people hold their phones. There should be an “are you sure” box that pops up like when you press the quit button. I’ve lost too much gold by holding my phone in my hand when the game ends. I think it should be removed from the end screen and have it’s own box. I went to the website to complain about it, like many people already had done, and the only answer they got was “it’s your fault you need to move your finger if you know the box is there”. Well if it’s problem lots of people are having them they should fix it and not blame it on the gamer. Doesn’t make me want to continue playing because I worked so hard to earn those gold bars only to have most taken by a stupid click of a button when I was just trying to click on the screen.

Hate the new update with tiffys on all the overview
I love this game and play everyday, along with candy crush and cookie jam and sugar smash. I loved the graphics, but on the update I did yesterday, u put tiffys face o. The overview of levels completed and I can't even look at it. I try covering her face to find the levels that only have 2 stars because I play till all the levels are three stars. I use to be able to see each level in color and with the different symbols of the section like on octopus. Now it is just her face and I can't even see the levels I need to complete! I HATE IT! I want the update taken off!! I want the colorful graphics with the different scenes and characters!!!! I can't look at all the levels I've completed with that tiffy face it makes me not want to play anymore. I'm going to have to cover her face with s paper to try to find my place!!! Please change it back!!! Then u will be 5 stars.

Disappointed
I have loved this game for so long it was such a relaxing game to play. however with every update we get pushed more and more to purchase stuff or create an account by taking more options away unless an account is created. Now we can’t compete in the races to win coins unless an account is created that was the main way to win coins which without coins it make it impossible to buy more lives when we run out then we have to wait forever for lives to replenish again. not everyone wants to create an account and put their email address out there. Not to mention one glitch gets fix and then seems to create a new glitch in its place. This game is really no fun to play any longer. Especially when you get into the harder levels and end up having to use all 5 lives and then still lose and have to wait 20 minutes just to get one life back unless you purchase coins. I will be uninstalling it it’s just no fun any longer.

A little too “busy” but usually fun
Right now it won’t load (reported), but usually I enjoy it for the most part. It does have too much in the way of side-games and stuff you have to keep responding to constantly for my taste, and seems to be adding more all the time. That makes it hard to play when you don’t have a lot of time, so I don’t play it as often as some other games, but it’s entertaining when I do. I also wish that when you “win” things that only last a certain amount of time, the time only counted while you’re playing. That also stops me from playing more, because I hate to win a bunch of stuff only good for the next 30 minutes or an hour when I have to sign off and won’t be able to use them. Even if you don’t claim them, they aren’t there the next time you play to be claimed.

Love this game! Suggestions for improvements...
I love this game and I’ve been playing for probably more than 2 years now almost on a daily basis. I even sometimes buy boosts if I’ve been stuck on a level for a while or am about to lose a streak. That being said, I have a few suggestions that would change my review to 5 stars: 1- as others have mentioned, a way to skip the remainder of the level when you’ve hit your goals and still have moves left. It’s annoying to watch most times. 2- the lighting bolt energy used for different events now re-loads wayyyyy too slowly. 1 bolt per hour? Bear brawl has become one of my favorite new additions, but I’m at the point in the arenas where I need 100 energy to play one round. That means it takes more than 3 days to load... and considering that that same energy is needed for the Crown event, I have to pick between the two. I understand that there are ways to get more bolts without spending money, but I’ve been slow to get those when I’m stuck on levels and then become stuck on finding “clues”. I really like to compete for the crown and I really like the Bear Brawl, but there needs to be quicker loading times for the energy, and maybe even a split of different types of energy for these two events. Thank you!!

Crap Puzzles that cannot be solved without spending real money
I've played tons of match 3 games and I've actually played King games for many years now. The problem is that they are too greedy...when you get to higher levels, you cannot go on without spending real money and lots of it. I used to justify the purchases as spending on leisure. But I am quite good at solving puzzles typically and the issue is that they have made it impossible to solve without boosters. The boosters they provide for free are rendered useless by the way in which they drop the new pieces. If you are looking for a fun match 3 game in which you can actually solve the puzzles with brain power, and in which the free boosters are actually rendered usable...I would suggest checking out a new game called Wildscapes. It's really early yet, so it's hard to tell if they will eventually get greedy like King games...but so far that hasn't been the case. I will not spend another penny on King until they do better...which is too bad because their creativity is wonderful. But their greed is egregious.

Used to love it...
I was getting frustrated by this game so I took a break for about 6 months. Thought I would see if any updates improved my opinion. NOPE! 1. The rewards are great, but I miss the challenge of beating the levels using my own skill. I've beaten levels with 2 moves because of all the boost rewards when I'm sure I could've beaten them on my own. It would be helpful to have the option to pause or bank reward boosts and choose when to use them. 2. I do not like the timed boost rewards. I'd rather have the option to bank them instead of being forced to play them or lose them. Sometimes I just want to play for a few minutes, but then I lose my reward. That's not a reward, that's holding players hostage. 3. Some "easy" levels are beyond difficult. For example level 1027 is labeled easy, however, beating this level is nearly impossible. I had the rainbow boosts plus an extra candy bomb AND and extra color changing boost and didn't beat it. I lost every boost I had and am still on that level. 4. GIVE THE CHOICE OF WHERE THE FISH GO! I have lost games because the fish don't go where I needed them to go. They often detonate other boosts that I am setting up for a power move. 5. 10 gold bars for an additional 5 moves? These are difficult and costly to obtain. Give me the option of using an additional life for more moves instead. 6. Lose the puzzle piece aspect of the game. It's pointless and annoying.

Disappointed
I’m a long time player, level 2200, and was a huge fan. Recently they added a bat who replaced chests with boosters and I’m hoping this changes after Halloween. In several episodes the fish work against you. But especially in the collect bottle levels, the bottles will not drop unless you buy extra moves. The most aggravating and irritating aspect of this game is there’s no way to pause it - So say you purchase a pack of boosters and they work for 1 hour or 2 hours depending on what you purchased, and there’s absolutely NO WAY TO PAUSE THE GAME. Sound like a money making machine? That’s because it is. It’s no coincidence that you get a special booster on your last move. I believe this is the only game I’ve ever played you cannot pause even after purchasing a timed booster. FIX IT KING! You are rich enough. Let people enjoy the game. I for one am tired of the money making machine and will no longer be playing until a pause button is added especially for paid boosters. SMH

LISTEN!
I am so sick of accidentally spending gold bars when I don’t mean to!!! it’s so annoying I had 34 gold bars and now I have 9 because the game doesn’t ask if you want to confirm your purchase. it just loads and uses them without making sure if you want to. This is very frustrating because even if I exit the app before it loads, it ends up using my gold bars anyway when I didn’t even use the moves that it hasn’t officially given me. Please fix this with some type of alert (like when it asks if you want to quit the level). I haven’t even gotten to use the moves because I thought the bars would come back, but they don’t. So far I’ve wasted 20 gold bars just because there isn’t a confirmation after you accidentally press yes. PLEASEEEE I am begging fix this issue, I love this game and it is seriously annoying that I’ve wasted 20 gold bars.

DOES NOT AWARD PROGRESS/Support not helpful
After multiple emails trying to explain to support that the second badge I earned in weekly champion competition this was the final response! My name is Mimi and I'll be glad to continue handling your case today. It's nice to meet you! 🌸 I'm sorry to hear your progress on Champion's Streak was reset, and you've lost one of your badges. Unfortunately, due to system limitations, it is not possible to retrieve badge progress, and we can't add one if it has been lost. In order to make up for this inconvenience, I've added one lollipop hammer to your account. You should see these items the next time you open the game, but if they don't show up, try restarting the game and your device, as sometimes the game may need a little push to receive everything. I truly hope you understand our position, as it's never our intention to make you feel as if you're being mistreated or that your request is being ignored. I know this may not be the news you were hoping for, but your cooperation is very much appreciated. If there is anything else we might be able to assist you with, please make sure to contact us again. You will soon receive a quick feedback survey regarding my service. Please take a moment to share your experience with us so we can keep improving our service to you Kind regards, Mimi King Player Support

Profile Picture
I used to play a lot on my Facebook account. I have since deleted it and lost all my progress. I started playing again on IOS with my Apple ID login. I am level 135 and I don’t wanna delete my progress to link it to a King account or another Facebook account just so I can change my profile picture. I can’t edit my profile at all, the edit button is gray and unclickable. This is one of my favorite games among all the candy crush games and I just hate the auto profile picture I got. I tried redownloading the app to see if it fixed it, but that just reset the event and my races and didn’t solve the issue. I can’t even express how important this is to me and really would like it fixed. I spent 2 hours on Google trying to find how to change it and there isn’t anything saying how either. You have my five stars if this gets fixed.

Overall it’s a great game, but…
1) This game would be infinitely improved if, when you fail to beat the level, you don’t have to waste your precious time (which you have won or paid for - the finite “infinite” time) getting through all the screens again to redo the level. 2) Level 273, which I really like & keep going back to replay even though I beat it twice without boosters, has a couple of glitches. a) stage 3 - The striped candies in the uppermost left hand corner, when combined, didn’t knock out the 2 bottles they lined up to on the uppermost right hand corner. b) stage 2 - The super cool doodad with the horns all around it malfunctioned a couple of times: the other times I played, a horn would fall off whenever you banged up against it OR when you blow up the other doodad. Well, the horn didn’t fall off twice - when the other doodad got blown up. c) stage 2 - The fish missed the only thing in the right hand box: a bottle. I’ve never seen a fish dive into the water before. I didn’t know that could happen - was it supposed to happen? I realize the level 273 thing is really nitpicky, but I noticed & figured I’d hit you up on that. HOWEVER: the #1 thing is irritating and I noticed other players wrote about it. THANK YOU FOR A SUPER GAME! ♥️♥️♥️

When we feel like it
As I have played this game for several years I’ve come to the conclusion that you pass boards in this game randomly. There is no strategy or order to passing boards. As you get further into game this becomes painfully obvious. For an example. There are boards where you need break a number of bottles to clear the board. However there are many times in theses boards that you never see the number of bottles to break them. What’s worst there is no strategy you can use to make them appear. As you go further this become more pronounced. I’m on Board 1798 this board requires the breaking of 8 bottles. In 5 weeks. I have never seen more the 5 bottles appear and have determined no consistent play that will make them appear. This is not game play. This is designed to keep you playing without any strategy what so ever. After running into this issue for several years I have finally said. This is not game play as I know it and refuse to play any more.

I was trying to enter a ticket for support but the link not working
I have missed out on 2 different challenges in the last 2 weeks where there was an opportunity to get to a certain level and get a certain number of points by midnight Sunday. I was not given my actual progress and reward for completing both tasks because each time you come back in the app it ask if you want to join the challenge when I’ve already joined. I’m guessing that’s why I didn’t get the rewards the past 2 weeks. I know for a fact I was on level 1074 and the task was to complete 40 levels by midnight Sunday which I compiled 1124 before the challenge ended. I took a screenshot when I accepted the challenge sine I didn’t get the credit for the challenge the previous week after I completed that task. Its disappointing to know that you completed something and not get the reward. Fix the issue please

Manipulative and Corrupt
The candy crush games are not actually games. In real games, there is a potential for winning, by using the materials available in a strategic way. Candy crush is rather a programmed experience, in which the app controls whether you will have the materials you need to win or not. There is nothing random about your playing experience. You can be very strategic, and the app will not give you the opportunity to pass a level until you have played a certain number of games—then, suddenly, the game becomes extremely easy. Sound paranoid? Nah. They are in the business of frustrating you so that you will pay them money for extra doodads to help you win. But it’s such a dishonest set up. The app breaks the rules of its own game at times. Unfortunately, there are enough sparkly and clever aspects of this programmed experience that one is a dupe, for a while, until the grotesque dishonesty of the experience overwhelms the charm. Don’t give these people your money. They debase the very concept of a “game”.

Adult challenges, very childish presentation. Bugs constantly when watching reward adverts.
I’ve played King games for a long time. I am an ADULT and I’m so tired of the clownish characters, the dragons with their inane remarks etc. You are wasting my time. This game is challenging and I don’t know how many CHILDREN get a kick out of the foolish antics. I do not. I have never spent a dime on this game and never will. I’m being ripped off on the free moves with the bubble gum machine now. I watch the video (advert) and at least 50% of the time the screen goes black...no reward. There’s no way to contact customer support directly from the game to report this “newest” bug. I’m tired of this game too. I’ve deleted all the other “Candy” games. This is the last to go. The puzzles are at times very difficult. If you want adults with money to spend on your games, instead of children, rethink your whole presentation. The dumb crown, the little girl, the candy factories. They are cloying and time wasting. I’m outta here.

It needs some fixes
So this game is fun but it does little tiny things that I know developers put there just to mess with your game. Like when you need to spread the jelly, sometimes not all the spaces that should get jelly get them. Example: I match a fish in jelly so it’s suppose to go to an empty space (unless there’s ice or blocks) so it goes to an empty space and what do you know, the jelly doesn’t spread there. Then I find myself saying multiple times while I play “that’s not the move I made”. Maybe it’s human error, that’s what I thought until just now before I wrote this review. I had a special move, bomb with a color bomb, I wanted to make sure there were no mistakes I carefully place my finger on the bomb and swiped my finger towards the color bomb to the right, and what do you know? The bomb matched with the green piece under it and not the color bomb!! Please, fix this. I can’t be the only one who experiences this and I can’t be the only one who is complaining!!!!!

I AM DONE WIITH THIS GAME!
I have went as far as I can go! My daughter even got me a brand new iPad so I can play my games especially candy crush! Soda! Saga! Friends! I go to the App Store Apple App Store and to check to see if I need to do updates. No updates needed. I got a Candy Crush soda and I get a few free candies because I haven’t been on here for a while. One candy is for 15 minutes. I’ve been trying to get on for 15 minutes because by the time I get to the area where I can hit the icon to play, I get kicked off. I finally after 12 minutes get to the area where I can push the icon to play as it shows my free candies that’s how long I know it’s taking me to get on. And it kicked me off! 15 minutes of getting kicked off of a game that I have all the updates done and I’ve even gotten a brand new iPad! Just to play this game! And I get kicked off! I’m done with the game! If you don’t have any answers for me I’m done with your game. I’ve been playing another game and now that’s my new game❗️

Should be called Candy CRASHED
I have been playing this game for quite some time and enjoyed the challenges but it has become quite annoying lately to have it constantly crashing in the middle of a game or crashing before you can even start a game. It's gotten worse with this update. You get 30 minutes of free play, just when I think it's gonna work, you go through 3 to 4 minutes of "buy this, play this, are you sure you don't want to buy this before you get to play the game". Load time is taking way to long saying loading............ and then it CRASHES and you have to try to reopen it all over again. Only to replay the same thing previously all over again. I try it everyday just to see that I get 30 minutes of free play that I can't use. It was enjoyable when it worked then it became work to try to enjoy it.

Cheats and glitches
Different pieces are moved instead of the ones I’m trying to swipe and I’m not the only person that experiences this. And some of the specialty candies will explode on its own even if you’re no where close to it and none of the candies moving are close to it. Glitches sometimes because of the ads. Was on a board since yesterday and needed 2 more moves. Video comes on then my phone goes black. Had to close the app then lost my game. Screen will freeze. The longer you play, the more the glitches. Same issues and still cheats. Playing a level where you have to collect bottles. 8. I collected 5 and it says 3. I can’t pass the board because it’s not letting me. I’m glad I’m not paying any money for this. AND JUST F’N I had 3 more to go. Clicked to watch an ad for extra moves...BLANK SCREEN! Had to close it and lost it!!! I used a striped candy to collect 2...nothing except for taking the bottles away. I’m just gonna delete this app. Still stuck at 1951. Popped 7 bottles but says I only popped 3. Delete.

What happened?
For the last week I have received the ‘No Internet’ icon show up at the beginning of the game. Now I know I AM connected because I’ve just gone out of Safari (the iPad internet) or gone from the game of the day in other games, so I know I am connected to the internet. What is going on within your app? It is frustrating because I do not get the bonus’ for the day. But, when I play the first game, the adds will appear which says to me that I am connected to the internet. This does not seem right that I have to put up with adds but not get the bonuses that should come every day just for playing. Now to be fair, this started after you all were supposed to be giving unlimited access to the game because of this shut down in our lives due to the Coronavirus. Please fix this problem. Thanks you.

Ads
Been playing this game since April 2013. I’m on level 6305…been watching ads for extra moves. Was so happy to have won a bunch of gold bars too. I had over 100 Good bars, and now there’s no ads for extra moves, so now you need to use your gold bars to move forward. Why is it that way now…what happened to the ads. It’s frustrating being on a level for soooooo long and then you are force to use your gold bars, till you’ve used it up and then they want you purchase more $$$…I might just have to delete this game. I’m not the only one that’s going through this. This game has so many ads to continue your game, WHY? Sometimes you need to watch 6 ads to get back to your game…then when you’ve watch an ad and click on the “X” to get back to the game it adds on several more seconds…so annoying!!! TO MUCH LONG ADS TO GET. BACK TO YOUR GAME…

Keeps crashing
I must give this game three stars because it’s so fun but I cannot give it more because it keeps crashing. I hope this can be fixed. I would like to change my review to 5 stars because this game is really fun. Updated: after the update the app is still crashing and making me start over the level. I hope this will be fixed. It seems like it crashes when I’m doing really well in a level too. 3rd Updated review: I was literally one move away from beating the level when the app went black and kicked me out of the game. I had to start over and begin playing the game all over again. I’m still patient for now but it won’t last forever. I ask that this error/glitch be fixed before I delete the game in frustration. Final update to this: Last straw! Changed my review to 1 star. After using a bunch of boosters to beat a level it went black and kicked me out of the game before I could complete the level. I am done. Deleting.

Great game. Terrible ads
Look, I play this game daily. It’s my waking up routine. And also look, I work in mobile advertising so I understand the need for the ads. HOWEVER, there are way too many ads period, but especially 30 second ads. I’ve been keeping track of how much time I spend waiting through 30 second ads versus playing time and it’s nearly double. If this was any other app, it would 100% ruin user experience, but we al actually enjoy the game. But, I am finding myself playing 10 minutes and getting annoyed and quitting. I also have stopped paying for extra moves, etc because you’re already making the money off the insane amount of ads. I work in programmatic, for a top 3 social media app. Here’s some advice... make the 30 second ads all skippable, or frequency cap them by playing session.

Love the game but letting it go
While I love the game I just can’t keep playing when it loses my levels and track of the number of days I have been playing. This is not the first time that I have opened the game and when it gives you the little gifts at the beginning and tells you how many days in a row you have been playing that it has started me over at day one. This time I was at almost 300 days. I know I played the day before because I had the double fish and I knew today would be the color bombs and I was excited because I knew I could possibly be able to pass the extra hard level I was on. Imagine my surprise when I open the game and I am suddenly back at day 1 at days in a row played. So I will be saying good bye to this game for awhile. I am very I ocd and have a particular schedule and routine that I follow so I know that I played yesterday if not it would ruin my whole day.
