It’s a shame the game gets so difficult without buying coins. It used to be a nice and friendly game but over time it changed into a money consuming game. Even the normal, easy levels are hard to finish. I played the game for over 6 years now and I am about to quit. I don’t like games who continuesly try to let the player pay for a chance to get further in the game. I’ll find something else.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

TWODOTS takes the best parts of Candy Crush Saga to create a wonderful puzzle game that's equally challenging and inviting to players. The game is completely charming and has a minimalist ​play style that makes it a wonderful mental break. Unfortunately, it also takes some of the worst parts of Candy Crush Saga in the process.

As the difficulty ramps up -- and you lose a few times -- the game locks itself for further play unless you pay for additional hearts and lives or sit on the bench for 20 minutes or more. It's an annoying distraction that only gets more frustrating as you get further into the game. That said, the wait times for regeneration aren't extreme, so it's imminently possible to play the game without paying -- and those times you are playing are incredibly entertaining.
