Whoa. I am currently stuck on level 86. Have been for a few days. I was playing last night cursing it.

Every time you talk about candy crush, you're giving the assholes what they want.  More new idiots who will "give it a try" because "its free" who advertise at their so-called friends, or become addicts and end up paying more than sane people pay for AAA games.

I don't...I don't understand how these people get writing jobs.  Like actual, paying writing jobs.  It's not only a boring, old news topic but it was written like 40 consecutive facebook updates.

I don't no what's worse, people that get addicted to the game, or the addicts talking about the game.

In other news "King" the creator of Candy Crush Saga (tm), is suing anyone with Candy or Saga in their name. They filled paperwork to block "The Banner Saga", a saga about ancient vikings, from obtaining trademark on the full name "The Banner Saga".

I've only just gotten addicted to Farm Heroes, the new King game. But I only play it when I get frustrated with level 410 of Candy Crush.

Would've been nicer to see a Candy Crush article about their actual newsworthy stunts involving trademarks rather than "candy crush is fun".

Funny, that's the one I'm currently stuck on.

I tried Candy Crush once. I found it interfered with my Simpsons:Tapped Out addiction so I uninstalled it.

Is any actual skill required? I can plan out about one move ahead, but otherwise I'm like a monkey at a typewriter randomly hitting keys.

I think I made it to the high 90's before quitting. I got so fed up with not only asking friends to help "unlock" the next section, but the fact that it turned into a game of pure luck.  And the harder the level, the more luck you needed. Zero skill. 100% luck. So F- that.

I feel sorry for Mario, getting addicted to Candy Crush.

I don't know what's worse though, Candy Crush or evil Hipsters (probably the Hipsters)! :-P

Never played it. But I hate it, because certain websites I visit on my phone auto-open the app center to the Candy Crush page.

Level 414, and while it is mostly random chance the harder levels do require some thought.

oh wait, i am sitting at my computer, back to world of tanks.

Yeah, I was close to deleting it last night. It is one of those ingredient levels and I had two moves left and two ingredients weren't even on the board yet. F*ck you guys.

But then I played again.

Though I've never played Candy Crush, my current gaming vice is Skyrim.

I got bored pretty quickly with Candy Crush.

Am I the only one who plays Giant Boulder of Death regularly? There's my go to addiction when the xbox isn't available.
 
2014-01-23 01:55:08 PM  
Phhht... I'm building a city.  In Minecraft.  On HARD.
 
2014-01-23 01:56:53 PM  
a) get an Android/iPhone file editor for files in the actual filesystem of the phone
b) find the directory that holds the CandyCrushSaga app.
c) go to aforementioned directory, in subdir res/common
d) edit the file tweakdata.prob and change the things you want to change... max lives, time between lives, etc.  You can't add boosters, but you can manipulate the life-things
e) if you have trouble with a level, go to the levels directory and figure out what episode/level you're on... edit the file.  Here, you can change things like the number of colors that show up, you can edit out the annoying choco-makers, a bit tricky at times, but not rocket science.
f) play until you tire of the game.

The only real issue is that the game can't get updated if you fark with the files... you need to delete and reinstall (you can save game progress by keeping a copy of the levels you end up editing (if any) and the save files in <candy crush dir>/Documents/save_XXXXX.dat (and maybe .bak), then run the newly installed version, stop game, move the save files back into the install directory/Documents/<new save file name that gets generated>

This will cure your addiction... I made it through all the game levels, but haven't played or updated since the last 3 or 4 new levels were added.

FWIW

The difference being that Skyrim is an actual game, and awesome (especially with mods).

Candy Crush is a "game," and by that I mean it's a thinly disguised rip-off and a complete turd designed to bilk people out of as much money as possible. There is no such thing as a free game.
