Candy Crush Saga
Disadvantages: Can be stuck on the same level for ages
I'm not really one to play games on my Android, I think I only have about 3 gaming apps on their at the minute. Anyhow, I noticed a lot of people talk about the Candy Crush Saga game for ages and also noticed that it is continually and #1 on the Google Play Store under the Free App's category. So, spending the day in bed nursing a hangover I decided to take a quick sneak peak at the game. No harm there? After all a lot of people are saying it's like Bejewelled Blitz and that isn't that addictive.
Indeed it is like Bejewelled Blitz involving 'Candy' istead of 'Jewels'. However unlike that game, Candy Crush takes on a more challenging role. You start out in 'CandyLand' at Level 1 and have to solve a typical puzzle by matching three of the same sweets together. Pretty simple as that's what you do in Bejewelled Blitz, but this game has different types of gaming.
For example, in one game selection you may be asked to score a certain amount within a certain amount of time. There are +5 Jewels in this game which adds 5 extra seconds to your game if you match three of the same colour.
In another game you are required to 'bring down' some items (such as Cherries) from the top of the game right to the bottom. Something that you don't do in BB. Another game involves Jelly, which is where the game is covered in jelly blocks and these blocks need to be 'smashed' before you can advance futher and you're only given a certain number of moves before you lose. So far i'm on level 35 and this game type is the hardest. I've spend 2 weeks on this level alone, but it is so addictive that I can't put it down.
You are only given a maximum of 5 lives (unless you request some from Facebook or buy some) and after that you have wait around 30 minutes for another life to be added to your account. As I said before, it can take days or weeks to complete one level and bear in mind there are now over 200 levels of this game so it's going to take some commitment.
Overall, it's a quality game, well designed and easy to play. I guess it can be frustrating when you can't complete a level and I don't agree with buying stuff with real money so won't do it that way.
Summary: Can ease boredom!
