Mouth-watering, candy-crunching follow-up

Just when you thought match-three games couldn't get any sweeter, along comes Candy Crush Soda Saga. This addictive sequel adds an extra layer of syrup to King's already sugary mobile game, Candy Crush Saga.

Juicy and delicious gameplay

Fans of the original Candy Crush game will find themselves right at home with Candy Crush Soda Saga. The core concept remains making groups of three or more matching candies by strategically switching them around. With a set number of moves to accomplish your goals, the challenge is real, and failure might mean restarting the level or utilizing in-game currency to continue.

The game boasts numerous levels set across different worlds, each introducing diverse characters and engaging game modes. An exciting feature is the ability to challenge your Facebook friends, adding a competitive and social element to the gameplay.

Like taking candy from a baby

As with the first game, Candy Crush Soda Saga is incredibly simple to play, making it ideal for all the family. There's no lengthy tutorial at the start of this game but it's easy enough to pick up if you've never played Candy Crush before. Candies move or shimmer to give you a clue as to what your next move should be.

Amazingly, the game's developer King has managed to make Candy Crush Soda Saga look even sweeter than the previous game. The candies look shinier and juicier, characters are cuter, and the sensation you get when your candies explode is more gratifying than ever.

The sound in Candy Crush Soda Saga is awesome, from the whistling soundtrack to the excitable English guy who shouts random words of encouragement when you've done well. 

New recipe for endless fun

The game's monthly season updates keep things fresh with unique quests and exciting match-three puzzles, introducing more sugar to blast for added fun. Progressing through the Season Pass brings rewards and boosters, enhancing the overall saga.

Different game modes like Soda, Frosting, Honeycomb, and Jam provide varied challenges, each requiring a unique strategy. New matching combinations, such as creating a Swedish Fish or the all-new Coloring Candy, add layers of excitement to the gameplay.

Over 10,000 sodalicious puzzles

With over 10,000 Sodalicious puzzle games, Candy Crush Soda Saga promises a wealth of content. The mouth-watering graphics, featuring 3D characters and a dynamically changing environment, contribute to the game's overall appeal.

A fizzy, flavorful experience

Candy Crush Soda Saga remains free to play, but optional in-game items may require payment. The option to turn off in-app purchases is available for those who prefer to steer clear of them. If you're seeking a fizzy, flavor-packed match-three puzzle game that delights the senses, Candy Crush Soda Saga is a top contender.

Love, annoyance, and suggestions

Player perspectives vary, with some expressing love for the game's satisfying sounds, lights, and delicious candies. The ability to form teams and collaborate for rewards adds a layer of social interaction. However, there are concerns about intrusive ads, with one player expressing frustration at the obnoxious ads disrupting their experience in other games.

On the flip side, an avid player appreciates the optional nature of ads but wishes for more control over certain in-game events to reduce stress. Annoyances with pop-ups and interruptions in the game experience are shared concerns among players.

A sweet symphony with a few sour notes

Candy Crush Soda Saga is undeniably a mouth-watering puzzle adventure that delivers on its promise of fun and excitement. With its visually stunning design, engaging gameplay, and a plethora of levels, it offers hours of entertainment. 

However, the occasional sour notes, such as intrusive ads and disruptions, may leave some players wanting a smoother gaming experience. Nevertheless, for fans of the Candy Crush series and match-threelovers, Candy Crush Soda Saga is a fizzy, flavorful journey worth taking. 

A worthy successor

Candy Crush Saga set the standard for match-three puzzle games, and Candy Crush Soda Saga lives up to that legacy. While facing the usual paywalls that restrict progression, the game offers ample fun for those willing to endure or bypass these obstacles. 

The call to action is clear: if you loved Candy Crush Saga, it's time to dive into Candy Crush Soda Saga for more divine matching combinations and challenging game modes.
