It will also take over your entire life.
You’ve heard a lot about Candy Crush Saga . You’re excited. The sugary theme tune rings in your ears. You even hum along.
1st level. Swap candies to make rows of three or more. Easy! You are King of the Candies!
As the levels go on, things become trickier. Nothing you can’t handle though. Although who wants candy with fruit in it?
Then things begin to get dark. Impenetrable jelly cubes are introduced. Who puts jelly in a cage?
Timers come into play, and the game tempts you with buy-outs. You stand strong, but also think of all the candy you could crush with that paintbrush.
Levels seem unconquerable. Where’s the black disco candy when you need it?
The little girl begins to cry. Stop crying, little girl! Please! Stop crying!
You wait an agonizing twenty minutes, coveting the candy of others.
When you’re locked out, all you can see around you is candy.
And then, you’re back. CANDY CRUSH.
