Review of Candy Crush by Ananya Swaminathan

Review of “Candy Crush”

“Candy Crush” is one of the most popular games available on phones, Apple gadgets, and Facebook.  As I find it an enjoyable game, I play it often; however, it is not without its faults.
The objective of “Candy Crush” is to clear the jelly from the board, bring down all the ingredients, or score a certain number of points, all within a given number of moves.
On the plus side, “Candy Crush” has a good balance of moderate and difficult levels, which make it challenging but not too frustrating. Additionally, the game requires some planning to create power-ups, which makes it more fun than if the power-ups were randomly generated. However, (even though players usually need a strategy to win), “Candy Crush” is relaxing rather than stressful. It’s a good pastime for those who have 5-10 minutes to spare.
On the downside, “Candy Crush” can get boring after a while. Even though the individual levels vary, the general idea remains the same, which can be tiresome to gamers who seek large amounts of variation. Furthermore, the game focuses on the repetitive task of making three, four, or five of a candy in a row. Some may find this tedious. Overall, however, “Candy Crush” is an enjoyable game, albeit unoriginal (much of it has the same idea as “Bejeweled”); it’s fun to play with others or individually when you have a few minutes to spare.
