Anyone playing this on their iPhone? I gave in after seeing a million commercials about it. It's free. I can't stop playing. It's like crack.
Yeah, I'm up to level 65 on FB. It's now getting hard to pass levels without buying boosters.
I'm totally addicted
I had to look up what the hell the "jellies" were like a dumbass.
I didn't connect to Facebook.
I'm on level 18, I think. I just started.
I can't stand how they try to make you pay for shit. I hate how they make you wait for about a half hour after you've run out of lives until you can play again. Oh, but you could pump in some $$$ and play right away. lol Fucking crooks!

Welcome to the wonderful world of the microtransaction.
The Voice of the Night
My family got me playing on FB. I'm on level 20-something. I refuse to pay for any of the "help" that you can use. Don't know about the phone game, but on FB, you can play another game to gain lives on Candy Crush
I'm on level 154. It IS very addictive. A coworker introduced me to it. I play on my iPad which doesn't seem to allow extra moves, etc. from friends on Facebook.
As of March 2013, "Candy Crush Saga" surpassed FarmVille 2 as the most popular game on Facebook, with 45.6 million average monthly users.
The game has had over ten million downloads.
Candy Crush Saga is popular on Facebook having more than 20 million likes on the application page. It is the most popular app on Facebook and the highest-grossing app in the Apple and Google app stores.
Candy Crush Saga has received particular attention in the Hong Kong media, with reports that one in seven Hongkongers plays the game, that a city bus driver was spotted playing the game while working, that it may improve or hinder interpersonal relationships, cause neck strain due to improper posture while playing the game, or even cause anxiety in those who cannot pass a certain level.
Fuck dem Angry Birds! It's all about the candy!
Wonder how long it'll take em to make this into a tv show or movie.
You're about 8 months behind everyone, darlin.
r9 is still on level 15.
I'm also totally addicted. I play on Facebook too, but ever since I downloaded the app on my phone, I've been playing it there. I've been stuck on level 29 for the past 3 weeks.
Strictly Words With Friends here.
The people who make Candy Crush also make the equally addictive Bubble Witch Saga.
Do you guys pay the 99 cents to buy more levels or do you ask your Facebook friends for a train ticket? I've bought more levels 3 times already. I'm not about to go annoy people on Facebook for a ticket. That's too embarrassing.
R14, I know. I just break down and fork over the buck, so I can get to the next level.
Now, if I'm out of lives, I just wait, until I am free to play.
Sometimes, people will throw a life my way, and I will send extra moves to them.
That doesn't happen too often, but it's nice when it does.
Question: What frustrates you more, gels or ingredients?
I hate ingredients, but I'm at level 65 and I'm thinking it might be gels, if those suckers don't pop on the first try.
Been on level 181 for months…yes I am sad, not I don't live in my parent's basement.
Level 181 is the WORST.
I hated that level. Was there for weeks on end.
I'm on Level 235 now, and no, I am not a gamer. This is the only game I play on FB, but it is an addictive one.
I only play at home on the desktop. Never on the iPhone, and not on the iPad. But still...
How do you guys play on a desktop and on Facebook? With a mouse?? That must be so awkward.
Ive been stuck at level 27 for a week.
Level 27?? Even my mom could get to level 68. She plays on her iPad. The iPhone is too small for her to see.
Stuck on level 30!
Which is better ingredients or gels?
[quote]Level 27?? Even my mom could get to level 68.
And your mom is mentally retarded? What are you suggesting, hon?
Let's all link our accounts so we can give each other lives and train tickets.
OMG there are 235 plus levels? I have been addicted to this game for weeks now and have even stooped to paying that extra 99 cents a couple of times because I could not stand to wait for regenerated lives. I got online to research why I can't just buy the game and be done with it and am totally shocked at all the comments about this game and what a ripoff it is to have to keep paying to play. Guess I am just too used to buying a game and owning it so I can play as long as I want until I win.
I think my addiction will have to stay at the don't bother anyone else level and I'll keep playing forever until I reach that last level without buying a thing. Of course, I might be in my 80's by then.
Trust me, the only reason this is so popular is because you have to wait that time for regenerated lives. If you can just buy the game and have unlimited lives, it wouldn't be fun anymore and you would put it down after a few games.
Stuck on level 45 for days..
R1 I've been stuck on Level 65 for over a week. Once got it down to one jelly and still blew it. It's VERY frustrating!
Beware their marketing ad file that takes over your browser.
Could not get around it no matter what I tried. Took me straight into the game and no where else. I had to change browsers on my phone.
I FINALLY beat level 65 and even had more than 20 moves left over. But it's made me hate chocolate.
I keep promising myself that I won't buy more lives, but as a complete addict I keep on pressing that purchase button.
I think I don't know how to play or I'm simply stupid because I can not get a good score on Candy Crush. I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
Never heard of this game.
What's the object of it and how do you play ?
Stuck on 181 here too.
So damn frustrating.
And the YouTube videos don't help.
And yes, I am sad enough that I sit and watch YouTube videos of other people winning when I get stuck.
No, and stop sending me invites on Facebook.
I love you OP.
I consider myself successful, and well-educated.
Not only am I addicted, I find myself waking up to visions of pushing the lemon to the left to create the "chocolate ball"....I fear I'm going crazy!
So much fun though.
Still stuck on 27. About to give up.
Thanks for the link R35 but I still don't understand how to play or how to get a good score. I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Is this supposed to be a matching game or something?
Level 27 is luck only. If you happen to get a good "board" where you get lots of striped candies and the sprinkle cookie. Otherwise, forget it.
Im stuck on 29. Its been weeks. Why oh why cant i remove the jelly?
Was stuck on 27 for abiout a week. Finally got thru zipped up to 39, now stuck again. ADDICTIVE.
I was stuck on level 99. To my great humiliation, my credit card company called to see if all those $1.00 etc charges were legitimate. I deleted my FB account and an going cold turkey.
I've been stuck on Level 70 for two weeks!
I'm on level 65. I changed the date on my tablet to cheat until I couldn't log in on tumblr anymore. Now I have to wait 60000 hours...
[quote]OMG there are 235 plus levels?
I believe the total is now close to 400. I'm an unabashed addict and presently on level 135. I won't even comment on how much money I've spent on this fucker...
I never spend money...is that why I can't get anywhere?
It's either that or I'm just plain stupid.
R48, I think some of the levels are very hard unless you buy the boosters. But I am not normally a gamer so I'm not sure how far a really good player could get on his/her own.
Damn that jelly.
I've made it to Level 70 without paying anything (except to advance to the next section). But I cannot get past it!
I'm hooked on SongPop but I hate it when somebody challenges me with crappy Country music shit...
I love SongPop too, and was hooked on it for a while, but I haven't played it in months.
Stuck on Level 65 for weeks. Was paying for boosters until I realized (looking at phone bill) I had wasted $60.00 and felt like an idiot.
If you keep hitting that you want to play, eventually the pop up thing that wants you to buy lives goes away and you have the option of watching an ad for a life.
I really, really hate Candy Crush.
Still stuck at 29
What does it mean when your score earns one, two, or three stars? Obviously it's based on how many points you ern for that level, but does it matter if you only earn one star vs three stars? I keep waiting to get a message that I can go to the next series of levels, or something, but so far it doesn't seem to have any bearing on my progress.
I've been stuck on level 79 for the longest time.
Oh, good God. Don't get me started on another game addiction -- Words With Friends currently has me in zombie mode.
This thread is oddly timed. I had NO idea cc was a global phenom; I just downloaded it yesterday based off of a coworkers suggestion from months back since I recently upgraded to a modern smartphone. Its only been 24 hours and yes level 27 was a nightmare; I'm currently stuck on 29!
I refuse to even look at the damn thing because it's turned all my friends into crackheads.
I play it on my iPad. The first computer game I ever got hooked on. Yeah, Damn those jelly blocks! Ha Ha
Hellerrr. Still on 29
I finished Level 111, but I'm getting tired of bugging people to help me unlock the next episode.
Candy Crush was pissing me off with the waiting periods and having to pay or beg to unlock more levels, so I replaced it with a couple other puzzle games that are quite fun and totally free (so far, anyway): Gems Journey and Save My Bird. Give them a try.
R70 Are they on Facebook? Or are they standalones?
I don't know if they're on Facebook...I got them from the Google Play store. Save My Bird is available for Iphone as well, but I think Gems Journey is Android-only right now.
I am on level 124, it took me about a week to beat level 123. Not sure why I spend so much time on this game. It is addictive.
[quote]I finished Level 111, but I'm getting tired of bugging people to help me unlock the next episode.
Just spend the 99 cents, you cheapskate, instead of looking pathetic to your friends.
Finally cleared 29 onto 30
Level 165 here. I have no idea why anyone would pay money for this game? I find, by the by, that if I'm stuck on a level for too long putting the game down for a day or so nearly always works to get me past the level.
Did not work for level 65. I'm stuck there since July.
It seems like if you wait long enough after completing an "episode" they keep lowering the price to get to the next level. Is been a few days for me, and I've only gotten help from two of the necessary three friends, and it looks like they only want me to pay 10 cents to advance.
It's become the most buzzed about game since Angry Birds. Not bad for a knock-off of Bejeweled. However, it's probably better and definitely addictive.
I need to find a decent version of it, the one from the Chrome store is too difficult and I'm stuck on level 3.
I play separately from Facebook. I know friends can give you lives when connected, but this is the first I'm hearing about moves. How does that work?
I just got to level 60 and it seems every board since 30 takes me more than 3 lives. I'm not sure they will allow us to finish this game without buying some boosters.
R80 On FB, friends can send you both extra moves (usually three) and extra lives. It took me a while to figure out that it doesn't work if you accept a life when you already have the maximum of five. You should wait until you're down at least one life before accepting more.
Fucking game, I just started playing a few days ago.
I can't pass level 23 :(
I've been stuck on 23 as well, R82.
Totally addictive...damn it!!!
I'm on 158, where they've introduced a new feature: chocolate factory tiles that keep churning out more chocolate even if you've already cleared all of it.
I was totally addicted to this game for a while and I ended up getting stuck in level 70. In frustration I decided to stop playing since I refuse to pay for lives or moves and haven't tried to play in months.
I guess I will give level 70 another try.
But they won't get a cent out of me.
