i’m pretty sure they have read all the reviews. many of us play this game to relax, not to stress out! in-app purchases are increasing way too much and your updates are trashy. we can no longer play previous levels to win boosters, nor can we use the free moves wheel after a level without HAVING TO USE GOLD BARS!! idk if anyone else has had that problem, but it’s more frustrating than it is relaxing. the fish in the game eat up slots that are USELESS to win the level. i mean they should be targeting the slots which will help us win the level, but instead they go ANYWHERE ELSE and as a result, i lose all my progress in the game because i've lost the level. and, when u win a level you get one booster to help u in the next level, but i have never had ONE STRIPED CANDY help me get through hard levels. make the game like it used to be. and in addition to that, why are all the super hard levels next to each other?! at least give the consumers some time to get some boosters so the super hard levels won’t be that difficult to get through and we won’t have to be stuck on them for days.
AND WHY DO THE LIVES GET WASTED IF WE DECIDE TO EXIT THE LEVEL AND COME BACK IN ORDER TO FIND A GOOD COMBINATION OF CANDIES TO MAKE A BOOSTER, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE HAVENT EVEN MADE A MOVE YET? i swear this game is literally trash now it’s not fun anymore and it just causes way too much stress.
even levels that aren’t hard levels are getting difficult. u guys say ‘swipe the stress away’, but it’s only causing more stress. it’s not just kids who play this game. i’m not playing candy crush for a few weeks in hopes that you’ll fix this crap. wouldn’t be a surprise if i come back to find NOTHING has been changed. this pandemic is causing all of us stress and this game is the only way i like to de-stress, but it’s just not what it used to be. the game is not fun anymore and it’s actually quite sad. don’t take advantage of consumers by forcing them to buy boosters in order to win the level.
Never in my 4 of playing this game have I ever felt the need to write a review for this game. I’m on level 5649; needless to say, I’ve been playing for years with a couple of breaks in between, and literally up until maybe the last year, I’ve been so annoyed with all the sudden changes & updates. You have taken away the booster meter, changed the booster/ moves wheel after failing a level to worthless options, altered the appearance of some candy blockers for who knows what reason, and much more. Since I’m obviously not at the most current level, I have never had the “need” to wait for any updates because I didn’t have any issues with the app nor ran out of weekly levels to play with. However I have recently found myself waiting for ANY update that the app offers just for the hope that the makers will some day stop messing with the app so much and just allow its users to actually have fun and stop making unnecessary changes. It may be rare but I can proudly say that I have never spent any money on this app. I enjoy this game so much, yet have never been compelled to buy any boosters because the game itself used to offer so many opportunities to gain boosters to pass the levels. But recently I have made the choice to simply stop playing rather than giving my money away to an unstable game that promises nothing in return.
I’ve been playing for years. I was one of the first people to play the game. I used to play so much I would run out of levels & I loved it but now. It’s been nothing but downhill. First of all it’s $1.99 for 10 bars of gold but everything’s more than 10 gold bars. Just getting a refill of lives is 12 gold bars. The boosters are 15 gold bars & up. So if you’re spending any money it’s upwards of atleast $5 just to get lives. Then if you do make a purchase it’s like because they know that you’re willing to spend money on the game they make it so you can’t pass levels without making purchases. I’ve been stuck on levels for days but soon as I make a purchase for lives or something else then I’ll get off the board. I just used the fish booster on a board with 26 moves I had 2 fish in the entire game! What’s the point of using my boosters if they don’t have any effect. The free spin to win moves for the next level is gone. The boosters for when you’ve won a board are horrible. Every change made to the game is to maximize the amount of money they can get you to spend. I’m so tired of the game I just want to delete it. This is why I stopped playing for 2-3 years & why I might just stop playing again.
I’ve been playing this game for years and really enjoyed it until recently. This game has changed a lot since I first started playing and lately it seems that the only way to get past the harder levels is to make a purchase. Ill get stuck on a challenging level and while playing it seems the game does everything to make is so you can’t win such as not giving the ingredients or setting off outrageous combos and erasing any chance you have of winning. The most recent example was while using my last move on a level all the pieces started falling like they should have but before all the combination and matches were done going off the game said out of moves and ended while their was clearly a match and one of the candies hadn’t even appeared. The only thing that seems to correct these inconveniences is to make some kind of purchase of any kind weather it be gold or boosters, as soon as the purchase is made the game seems to flow the way it should.
I use to play Candy Crush when it first came out and it was the bomb! I don’t know what happened over years but it seems to be a money pit now! It’s impossible to advance without shelling out some money every now and then. It was never like that before, the levels were easy enough to advance without paying. I notice last week they also took the free option to win more moves when you run out of moves in a level! What’s up with that!?? Now you automatically have to have 7 gold bars to even spin the wheel. I’m about to get rid of the app because I refuse to give it any more money to advance! I’ve been stuck on the same level for over a week now.
Fun game until this last week. I’m only given the option to “purchase gold bars” when it says win moves at the end of a level. Now I’m expected o use gold bars when I’m close to winning? Also, the fish booster...please fix. That booster is no longer helpful as it eats the empty spots. Kind of pointless. Especially on the levels where you have to clear the blocks with 8 pieces...it eats the empty spots. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with this game, but now I just kind of hate playing it, as I feel I’m being cheated at the end for the opportunity to win moves. I can’t purchase gold bars and boosters all the time.
THIS NEW UPDATE IS TRASH why when i beat a level but don’t wait for the star rating, say i close the app while the fish are finishing off my points because of my extra moves, that when i open the app back up it doesn’t start there like it used to. instead i’m back on the map and the game is acting like i didn’t beat the level. instead i lose a life, my boosters, and my chocolate box? why would you change this? sometimes i have to exit the app if something happens and because of that i lose my progress? stop making this game unbearable
You can’t win half of the hard levels without boosters, and you only get to spin for a free booster once every 24 hours. EVERYTHING requires an in-app purchase. It’s so frustrating. You can also only have so many lives at a time, so half the lives you DO earn wind up getting wasted. And it’s frustrating to have to have “lives” anyway. Just another way for them to try to force you to spend money. Seriously out of any app-store game I’ve played, this one is the absolute worst with trying to force in-app purchases.
I’ve played this game for years. I’m on a high level, 6938. I’ve probably spent too much money on it but that was fine because it was entertaining. Sadly, I can’t connect to the server and Candy Crush customer service is non existent. Not only that, but they took away my sugar drops and other ways to earn boosters. I won’t spend another dollar on this game. Hopefully they’ll fix it soon because like many others, I’m stuck at home because of the virus. This is my first review for an app. Very disappointed!!!
I’ve been playing Candy crush for years and have always tolerated the updates but now the updates are literally ruining the game. Theres no more chances to win free moves at the end of a lost level. The build a bot is completely useless and now internet of losing one booster for every level you lose its now all levels are being lost. I can no longer play old levels to win boosters. It makes me sad because this was one of my favorite pastimes and now im not going to play until you get it together
