Mouth-watering, candy-crunching follow-up
- As addictive as chocolate
- Succulent graphics
- Superb audio
- Tired formula
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.
Fans of the original Candy Crush game won't be disappointment by Candy Crush Soda Saga, since it's really more of the same thing.
The central idea is to make groups of three or more matching candies by switching them around. You only have a set number of moves in order to achieve this quest, or you need to restart the level - or pay with game currency to continue.
There are more than 270 levels in Candy Crush Soda Saga, set across different worlds where you'll encounter a range of characters, and different game modes.
One of the most fun aspects of Candy Crush Soda Saga is to challenge your Facebook friends to beat your scores.
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.
Drink it up
Candy Crush Saga really set the benchmark for match-three puzzle games, and Candy Crush Soda Saga is just as great. Sure, there are the usual paywalls that prevent you from progressing without sharing, paying, or waiting. But if you can put up with this, there's plenty of fun to be had.
