Get rid of the chocolate box challenge!!!

I've been playing this game for about a year or so. It is soothing, fun, challenging and the graphics are amazing. There are a few sides to the game that I find to be slightly annoying and at times a bit unfair. The flys! They're absolutely horrible. Also, I really like the league play that recently started, however, when I get "trapped" or shall I say forced to play the chocolatier box, the boards are way harder and you're stuck waiting hours to continue. There really should be an option to opt out of that! It's frustrating and takes forever. And it's like 30 levels of insanity, to make one chocolate? I'd rather play the original puzzles while gaining stars and building the factory. That chocolate box build is a dread and should be a choice. Other than that, I love this game.

Though it has the same basic mechanics as other match-3 puzzle games, this is still fun, providing players with increasingly clever puzzles and an interesting reason to keep playing. Inspired by the classic 1971 movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Wonka's World of Candy is a match-3 puzzle game where you have to move a piece of candy on a board in an attempt to line up three or more of the same kind. Doing so removes all of them from the board, awards you much needed points, and sometimes gives you a new piece of candy that has special abilities. Admittedly, this is a pretty blatant rip-off of Candy Crush and other games. But what it does have are some new mechanics, especially in the later puzzles. It also gives you a good reason to keep playing, rewarding solved puzzles with items you can use to fix up or add to Mr. Wonka's candy factory. Not only do you add some rather weird trees, but you also make it a safer and more fun work environment for the Oompa Loompas. All of which is why fans of match-3 puzzle games will get a serious sugar rush out of Wonka's World of Candy.
