If you think reading is for chumps check out the video review http://youtu.be/T0-qXx8uErg
First of all I’ve failed my friends and family by reviewing this game but it has become an addiction of mine just like when I got hooked on heroin. I’m addicted so much that I play at school with the sound turned all the way up in class. Yes mr smith that soothing voice and calming music wasn’t a flashback from last night when you were at the gym and one thing led to another with a muscular black man. Alright that’s enough jokes, time to get into the review.
I do think that the this game makes a lot of small but smart changes to the formula. Like when you have a 2×2 square of candies a fish candy will appear and when activated these fish will randomly take out a candy anywhere on the screen. The game also feels a lot smoother when moving candies especially compared to the original which felt more stilted.
Different “special candies” can be formed by matching a combination of 4 or 5 in a certain formation, such as a “Striped” candy, a “Wrapped” candy, or a “Color Bomb”. Special Candies can also be matched together, producing varying effects; for example, matching a color bomb with a striped candy turns all of the candies of its color into striped candies, which are immediately detonated.
Other special candies which appear on the boards for free can be purchased from the in-game store, or won from the Candy Crush Booster Wheel. These include Jelly Fish in jelly clearing boards which clear 3 pieces from the board at random, the Coconut Wheel on ingredient dropping boards which changes three candies in a row into striped candies, and Lucky Candy in recipe boards which when matched change to one of the types of pieces the player needs to clear the objective. The Booster Wheel also offers a chance to win a jackpot of all boosters in one spin. The player can also purchase various Boosters to attempt to win levels more easily or extend play after a lost level; Lollipop Hammer clears a single piece from the board, Extra Moves can be purchased if running out of moves at the end of a game, Free Switch allows players to switch two pieces that do not possibly match, Sweet Teeth to clear out Blockers and Jelly.
Candy crush soda saga is a mindless fun game that will burn your time like a line of cocaine but candy crush soda saga is way less fulfilling or entertaining as hardcore drugs. But if you are bored and depressed you can pick this up. Candy Crush Soda Saga gets 3 and a half stars out of five.
