King' Candy Crush Saga... aka your Facebook crack addiction... now on mobile... for quite some time now... go figure.

A Resist This Android Review

This Week's episode of That Android Podcast (Episode 11) we look at Match 3 gaming. So might as well start off with the most addictive port from Facebook next to Zynga' s village Sims. The match 3 game Candy Crush Saga, to date the only game I know of that is a perfect port from Facebook to mobile.

Basically you travel a candy land factory kingdom whatever board helping the denizens of the game by completing match 3 games. Complete a board with x score, or with x score done in a certain time, or drop and collect ingredients. A decent smattering of match 3 types with a fairly robust and fun game play style that keeps you coming back for more.

Downside is the game at regular intervals throws a hard board at you which requires alot of effort to get past, compounded with the fact the game charges you real money for power ups to make getting through rough spots easy... but again as with any Freemium game patience and perseverance will do you well in moments like this. Also you have x amount of lives, which slowly or quickly diminishes if you run into trouble clearing certain boards, of which only time or friends gifting you turns can cure.

All in all a solid fun addictive game. And while it is a Freemium game you can play it without ever feeling the urge to spend real money on it. A solid recommended 5 out of 5. Pretty fun, worth playing, check it out.

Next up on Match 3... two Disney fares that thinks Match 3 equals the newest way to lazy lazy a movie tie-in game... Disney' Frozen and Maleficient, part of their Free Fall line. Stay tuned.

Your t u rn. Match 3 gaming and Candy Crush Saga.
