There’s a well-known phrase that you’ve probably heard – “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” – and that’s definitely the sort of pithy comment you could attach to the start of a review of a new Candy Crush game.
That’s not to denigrate King’s achievements though – every time I’m on some form of public transport, I can guarantee that I’m going to see at least one person playing on a version of Candy Crush. That’s how popular it is.
And that makes Candy Crush Friends Saga pretty interesting. There are some little changes to the formula here, and a new lick of paint as well. You wouldn’t be too far away from the mark if you were thinking this was Candy Crush 2.0. Or at the very least a step in that direction.
