Just as fun as original, just as many in-app purchases.

Candy Crush Soda Cheats the Winners

Ive noticed that Every time I’m about to win a level first with the new extra moves, the game goes black and takes the previously won bottle away, even though it resets that level as if I haven’t played it. I believe it is an algorithm to cheat winners out of completing the game first time round, as it seems that CCS has decided it ‘should’ take the player multiple times to win that level. It happens Every Single Time. So, I lose the level AND have to replay the level!? Ergo, Candy Crush Soda cheats it’s winners of completing levels and removes previously won awards.

These games are very frustrating I spend lots of money and now I’m stuck yet again on a hard level, I’m thinking of deleting candy crush soda

CANDY CRUSH SODA SAGA is more a continuation of the wildly popular 2013 game than a sequel. Although the gameplay is tweaked a little, the mechanics are still essentially the same, though that's not surprising given how successful the first game was. There are new block types, with new power-ups, but they're just as hard (if not harder) to achieve.

And the candy hammer is still there. The Facebook pestering of friends is still there. And the candy is just the same. Plus, the addiction factor is just as strong. If you managed to shake the Candy Crush bug once and don't want to get caught up in it again, Candy Crush Soda Saga could be bad news for you. For everyone else, it's a fun puzzle game even if it's nothing new.
