Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush Saga is one of the most compelling, entertaining, and socially-engaging match 3 games currently on the App Store with a great Facebook integration and an addictive reward scheme.
The concept of Candy Crush Saga is very simple. Match three similar pieces of candy to get to the next level. Each level has a certain number of candy matches needed, with bonuses, combos, and high-score opportunities, all integrated with Facebook for friendly competition. It is free to play, but there are a many upgrades, including lives that allow you to keep playing if you lose on any given level (which can happen frequently when you reach higher levels) or charms that slow down gameplay or swap out different colored pieces of candy. The game is reminiscent of Candy Land or the old Christmas specials of the 60s and 70s, complete with pastel colors and cutesy winter monsters.
If you like match 3 games, Facebook online games, or strong themes with compelling gameplay, Candy Crush Saga should be installed on your iPhone, iPad or Android device. You don't need to spend any of your hard earned money to enjoy the rich gameplay experience, and even if you do, the rewards are often exciting. It's not the most original game on the App Store, but it is very polished and enjoyable.
