Candy Crush Soda Saga Positive Reviews
Previous Review Deleted. Let’s try again.My previous review was deleted due to my usage of some strong language. Let’s do this again. I am an avid fan of this game. I’ve been playing since 2015 and am on level 2067. This most recent update is highly displeasing. One of my favorite parts of this game was the “quest” aspect, which allowed you to earn rewards upon the completion of certain tasks. Now, the quests have been removed in favor of the team based “Mr. Toffee’s Fair”. My teammates are quite frankly, useless and are holding back my gameplay. I see no reason for a forced team aspect in this single player game. I didn’t join Candy Crush to make friends; that’s ridiculous. Finally, my main problem with this new update is the addition of ads. I do not want to sit through a 30 second long ad for the most recent pillage the village style game in the App Store. This is a racket, and it’s despicable. Bring back my quests. Axe Mr. Toffee. I will not be playing until things change.

Very DisappointedI’ve been playing this game since I retired. I’m also helping my grandson learn how to play. I definitely do not consider myself as a gamer and do not have the monetary means to purchase additional boosters to win. I have reached over the 2000 level simply using using the free lollipop hammer, color bombs, jelly fish, etc., and other free boosters provided by the App. I’m very disappointed with the following items: *1) I received two messages labeled as the Soda Circuit, which said... “Winning isn’t easy! But, you got the experience to be faster next time!” Thank goodness that these messages were not sent while my Grandson was playing with me. I felt that I was being shamed for lacking skills *2) I had accumulated over 365 days of playing this app. I thought I played every day, but I must have missed a day. I had to pick up working with my grandson to complete his online school work when the schools were closed for the coronavirus. My daughter is an RN and was working a lot of overtime. *3) Is there an option not to be part of a race? Since I do not have many boosters, I’m usually “last” in completing the race. However, I do like playing Mr, Toffee’s Fair to win boosters. Note, I do have other Candy Crush apps, but I hope you consider my thoughts above that I’m just playing for FUN..Version: 1.170.9
Quick easy changes that will make me rate it 5 starsI love all 4 of the candy crush games Saga, Soda, Jelly and now friends. I have noticed with this Soda (which is my absolute favorite out of all of them) will not allow you to skip the animations when the level is complete and is counting your score up as well showing your bonuses. This would be a big help when trying to knock out a couple levels when your at work on breaks. I have put quite a bit of money and hours into this game and i do not mind at all. It is worth it to keep me happy. I love the infinite lives and bonus moves for the levels and that you give us free gifts for log ins and just as events. This gives the people who do not want to spend on games the opportunity to advance and win extra goodies as well! A lot of other games are not as generous as you with the paid for content. So thank you for the fantastic games and keep them coming.
All i request is the opportunity to tap the screen to skip the all animations i have a short attention span so lose interest when you get 4 or more in a row.
You have this feature with Jelly and friends. Can we get it on saga and soda please?
Thank you and keep up the great work!.Version: 1.143.6
Fun till it’s notI’m on level 286, and have been for the last 2 or 3 weeks. I open the game, promptly lose all my lives on this level, and close it. Rinse and repeat every darn day. I’ve used all my boosters, used all my gold for extra moves and still I’m on level 286. I spend money on games, I’m not opposed. But I won’t spend money if that’s the only way I can beat a level. I pay to enhance my games, sometimes I pay to even get the games, but I will not pay to win your silly little match game. I don’t even mind playing a level over and over and over until the algorithm determines I’ve played enough times to get a win. But this has been ridiculous and borderline insane. I’ve wasted almost 100 lives on a single level. ONE HUNDRED LIVES ON A SINGLE LEVEL. Don’t try to tell me that isn’t a blatant money grab. Keep your game, I’m gonna go spend my money with a different developer, and my next step after submitting this review will be to delete this game. I realize I don’t matter- plenty of people are willing to pay .99 to beat a level. But there are also lots of people who won’t, this review is for them. You’ll be able to play for awhile, but this is flat out a pay to win money grab. It’s popularity doesn’t negate that simple fact..Version: 1.176.3
Becomes impossible after level 3500While I appreciate the game designers need to provide and ever-escalating level of challenge, this game reached a tipping point for me after around level 3500 where the frustration outweighed the pleasure of the game.
If I’ve reached close to level 4000 on both Crushes, then I’m by no means a novice player. But there ceases to be any fun in playing a level 12,15,20 times, knowing that the level remains impossible to beat even with the best combination of boosters, and in the end it’s just waiting for dumb luck to provide the right combination to get the level defeated. I’ve never hollered at a game before this one. I finally deleted the app out of disgust.
And let’s talk about the 30-40 second long ads every time I re-start the level and want an extra booster, or want a play extension at the end. I don’t need another widget or pair of waterproof pants. I began to perceive that the game existed only to generate ad revenue for the game developers. Which is fine in moderation given that it’s a free game. But when I’ve had to sit through ten minutes of ads in playing twenty levels, it begins to become TOO much..Version: 1.186.2
Kimmys ArcadeI FINALLY just got kimmys arcade and am in LOVE with this feature!! I’ve been playing for years and this is by far my favorite!! Truly increased my rating for sure! I play just to play kimmys arcade!🤩🤩
My only gripe is I should be able to cash in my gold tickets for something. I will NOT spend money on this game, however I earn thousands of useless tickets that I’m unable to cash in or redeem! That doesn’t make sense 🤔🤔 AND on rainbow road when I have my consecutive bonus running I do not receive my double fish that I should on tier 3 and after on rainbow road which is VERY DISAPPOINTING.
Also, the fish do not go to the proper place when necessary. There’s been many times when I could have beaten the level on my last move had the fish gone to the right place!! 😡😡😡.Version: 1.166.4
Gameplay hindered on purposeSo I really enjoy playing the game, however, I’m rating it low because I’ve noticed that during the game when there are chocolates and gum that reappear if you don’t continuously pop them until they are completely gone, they prevent you from moving your pieces while the letters show up that say “sodalicious” or “divine” after you make a major move to “praise” you for the move. Which is ironic because if you have any chocolate or gum and you have one move to completely remove it, they prevent you from making said move while those words show up until they’re gone, so another piece will come up. Then, you’ll have to make one more extra move than you did before because they wouldn’t let you move while you had the chance during their digital word show. So that’s super aggravating and it is not fair. It’ll make you lose a game in some instances since you don’t have an unlimited amount of moves. Honest game play goes a long way especially for your ratings guys and I’m the type that will uninstall if it becomes a constant issue..Version: 1.187.5
This game crashes ALOT. Frustrating /:When I am able to play this game it is fun and challenging. It is really annoying when I am near completion of a level and/or have just used my special extra tools, or have purchased extra moves/tools on a level and then the game kicks me out and I have to start all over. It feels like the “glitches” very frequently happen in these instances. Initially I did spend some $ to make purchases in game but I quickly came to realize that due to the glitches that shut me out frequently, it is not worth spending any extra money to buy things in game. Now I play until I get to the point where the getting kicked out gets annoying and then it dissuades me from having fun and I don’t play the game for a long time. I hope that someone works out the glitchy-ness so the crashing/kicking me out of issue is resolved. In concept, and when it is working, I really enjoy this game. The crashing is very, very sucky though. I am not going to provide my email address or Facebook information to be able to save progress..Version: 1.188.5
Addicting but some things must change for fairnessI love this game . been playing it forever. theres that one time I took a all I title hiatus for about two years from candy crush(original) because the level was just too hard to beat and I wasnt spending a penny on extra moves . anyways, the number one thing that grids my gears is when u exit in the middle of playing a level it asks u so many times if " your sure u want to give up" however when u get those gold bars and the game is over and u accidentally press the buy lives with gold bars it automatically takes the bars instead of confirming if thats what we really want . that needs to change immediately especially because ive been playing so long with thoughts of maybe it will change but it hasn't. please fix that. also if we get two hours of things it should let us decide when we want to use our two hours because if I'm playing at 3.am and fall asleep for work I missed those two hours , get me ? LOL but overall, addicting and I love it ..Version: 1.138.5
Things have changed, idk if I like them :1I, like many people, enjoy being entertained by games like this. You have levels you can traverse, things you can interact with, and it’s all generally quite fun. However, last I played this game was about a year ago and things have changed since then. For one, the design of the level badges. They’re square now instead of circular, and I liked the old design better. This is something I can live with though, so I’m not counting it as a complaint. My second issue is the backgrounds. I loved all the scenery when playing the old version of this game, but it doesn’t seem to change here. However, I may just not be high enough leveled yet to make it change, so take my words with a grain of salt. All in all, I still love playing this game. It’s fun, bright and colorful, and I would give it five stars in a heartbeat if this were my first time playing. Thank you if you actually read this far, I appreciate it :).Version: 1.191.5
Pretty good but...Very fun and cleverly thought out. BUT...really wish there was a prize wheel too. Some levels seem impossible but the more you play that level, the easier it becomes - like it's all pre-arranged, which is kinda disheartening. Also, it would be cool if you ended a level with a Color Bomb or striped candy, that it would go into a "bank" of extras you could use later. Nothing worse than feeling that treat you just earned was for nothing! Would also appreciate Bubblegum Hill being offered more often and for a longer, more consistent period and not on a random basis. Many times I open the game and Bubblegum only has a couple of hours left, even though I've played within the 24 period that it implies it's been active but it didn't show up! I even exit out of the game to see if it's going to appear but it doesn't always. Overall, a fun, addictive game. Just know that it's a game of luck, not skill..Version: 1.110.6
Hate the new update with tiffys on all the overviewI love this game and play everyday, along with candy crush and cookie jam and sugar smash. I loved the graphics, but on the update I did yesterday, u put tiffys face o. The overview of levels completed and I can't even look at it. I try covering her face to find the levels that only have 2 stars because I play till all the levels are three stars. I use to be able to see each level in color and with the different symbols of the section like on octopus. Now it is just her face and I can't even see the levels I need to complete! I HATE IT! I want the update taken off!! I want the colorful graphics with the different scenes and characters!!!! I can't look at all the levels I've completed with that tiffy face it makes me not want to play anymore. I'm going to have to cover her face with s paper to try to find my place!!! Please change it back!!! Then u will be 5 stars..Version: 1.102.6
Play on button should be taken away or moved!!I’ve been playing this game for a long time and continue to get frustrated that the stupid “play on” button is right where normal people hold their phones. There should be an “are you sure” box that pops up like when you press the quit button. I’ve lost too much gold by holding my phone in my hand when the game ends. I think it should be removed from the end screen and have it’s own box. I went to the website to complain about it, like many people already had done, and the only answer they got was “it’s your fault you need to move your finger if you know the box is there”. Well if it’s problem lots of people are having them they should fix it and not blame it on the gamer. Doesn’t make me want to continue playing because I worked so hard to earn those gold bars only to have most taken by a stupid click of a button when I was just trying to click on the screen..Version: 1.118.4
LISTEN!I am so sick of accidentally spending gold bars when I don’t mean to!!! it’s so annoying I had 34 gold bars and now I have 9 because the game doesn’t ask if you want to confirm your purchase. it just loads and uses them without making sure if you want to. This is very frustrating because even if I exit the app before it loads, it ends up using my gold bars anyway when I didn’t even use the moves that it hasn’t officially given me. Please fix this with some type of alert (like when it asks if you want to quit the level). I haven’t even gotten to use the moves because I thought the bars would come back, but they don’t. So far I’ve wasted 20 gold bars just because there isn’t a confirmation after you accidentally press yes. PLEASEEEE I am begging fix this issue, I love this game and it is seriously annoying that I’ve wasted 20 gold bars..Version: 1.163.5
I was trying to enter a ticket for support but the link not workingI have missed out on 2 different challenges in the last 2 weeks where there was an opportunity to get to a certain level and get a certain number of points by midnight Sunday. I was not given my actual progress and reward for completing both tasks because each time you come back in the app it ask if you want to join the challenge when I’ve already joined. I’m guessing that’s why I didn’t get the rewards the past 2 weeks. I know for a fact I was on level 1074 and the task was to complete 40 levels by midnight Sunday which I compiled 1124 before the challenge ended. I took a screenshot when I accepted the challenge sine I didn’t get the credit for the challenge the previous week after I completed that task. Its disappointing to know that you completed something and not get the reward. Fix the issue please.Version: 1.149.1
What happened?For the last week I have received the ‘No Internet’ icon show up at the beginning of the game. Now I know I AM connected because I’ve just gone out of Safari (the iPad internet) or gone from the game of the day in other games, so I know I am connected to the internet. What is going on within your app? It is frustrating because I do not get the bonus’ for the day. But, when I play the first game, the adds will appear which says to me that I am connected to the internet. This does not seem right that I have to put up with adds but not get the bonuses that should come every day just for playing. Now to be fair, this started after you all were supposed to be giving unlimited access to the game because of this shut down in our lives due to the Coronavirus. Please fix this problem. Thanks you..Version: 1.165.9
Love this game! Suggestions for improvements...I love this game and I’ve been playing for probably more than 2 years now almost on a daily basis. I even sometimes buy boosts if I’ve been stuck on a level for a while or am about to lose a streak. That being said, I have a few suggestions that would change my review to 5 stars:
1- as others have mentioned, a way to skip the remainder of the level when you’ve hit your goals and still have moves left. It’s annoying to watch most times.
2- the lighting bolt energy used for different events now re-loads wayyyyy too slowly. 1 bolt per hour? Bear brawl has become one of my favorite new additions, but I’m at the point in the arenas where I need 100 energy to play one round. That means it takes more than 3 days to load... and considering that that same energy is needed for the Crown event, I have to pick between the two. I understand that there are ways to get more bolts without spending money, but I’ve been slow to get those when I’m stuck on levels and then become stuck on finding “clues”. I really like to compete for the crown and I really like the Bear Brawl, but there needs to be quicker loading times for the energy, and maybe even a split of different types of energy for these two events.
Thank you!!.Version: 1.192.3
Great game. Terrible adsLook, I play this game daily. It’s my waking up routine.
And also look, I work in mobile advertising so I understand the need for the ads. HOWEVER, there are way too many ads period, but especially 30 second ads. I’ve been keeping track of how much time I spend waiting through 30 second ads versus playing time and it’s nearly double. If this was any other app, it would 100% ruin user experience, but we al actually enjoy the game. But, I am finding myself playing 10 minutes and getting annoyed and quitting. I also have stopped paying for extra moves, etc because you’re already making the money off the insane amount of ads.
I work in programmatic, for a top 3 social media app. Here’s some advice... make the 30 second ads all skippable, or frequency cap them by playing session..Version: 1.177.5
The BEST / GREATEST game on EARTH !The levels are so challenging which I love which makes me try even harder I just love how hard you guys make it and when I lose a level it makes me try harder and it makes me feel confident and I just wanted to say thank you for making this game very challenging and very fun ! I think the hardest level for me was Level 57 and the easiest one for me is Level 66 which I just passed and I only had it for a week but if it weren’t for its challenging and fun things that Soda Crush has created I wouldn’t be at the Level I am now ! I am currently about to go on Level 67 .!.! I just am so thankful that this app is created in this every day life / reality ! I rate this app a 100% 5 stars ! And I truly believe you should rate it a 100% 5 stars! ! ! !.Version: 1.168.2
Cheating out of 2 hour boostersI love this game I can say it’s one of my favorite games, but they have been cheating me out of my 2 hours of boosters. When I open the app I get the 2 hours of booster but when I use it just once way before the two hours are up, I end up loosing my 2 hours of booster. For example last night I opened the app got my two hours of the day 2 booster I go play the board I’m on and I use the booster, after losing I went to go replay the board but my two hours of booster was gone and I only used it once and my two hours wasn’t even nowhere to be over. Even after I closed the app and reopened it the 2 hours of the booster was still gone. I was cheated out of my two hours of booster, idk what the problem is with that but that really needs to be fixed ASAP...other than that I love the game.Version: 1.102.9
Should be called Candy CRASHEDI have been playing this game for quite some time and enjoyed the challenges but it has become quite annoying lately to have it constantly crashing in the middle of a game or crashing before you can even start a game. It's gotten worse with this update. You get 30 minutes of free play, just when I think it's gonna work, you go through 3 to 4 minutes of "buy this, play this, are you sure you don't want to buy this before you get to play the game". Load time is taking way to long saying loading............ and then it CRASHES and you have to try to reopen it all over again. Only to replay the same thing previously all over again. I try it everyday just to see that I get 30 minutes of free play that I can't use. It was enjoyable when it worked then it became work to try to enjoy it..Version: 1.196.2
Very AddictingThis game is addicting, pretty much. I loved Candy Crush franchise games since it’s so original but I don’t know what to say but this game just attracts millions of people in some way by swiping and it’s just satisfying. However, I encountered only one bug in this game. After when you complete a level, of course Tifi pops out of the screen with soda filling up the whole background but instead she appears without the soda filling up. It’s kind of weird but this bug doesn’t bother me at all. Otherwise, I would say thank you for all your hard-work effort that you put in this game and King, you are one of the most original game developers out there among others. Thank You!.Version: 1.187.5
Fun game, a few suggestionsI enjoy this game in general. It’s fun and challenging at higher levels. I think the app could be improved with a couple of changes.
When you win unlimited lives by passing a level, it would be nice if you could accept it at a time when you have the time to really take advantage of it. Too many times I pass a level, earn the reward and then lose it because I don’t have opportunity to play for that long at that moment. Maybe create a way to accept your reward within 24 hours...?
Also, the app needs a “confirm” button to purchase more moves with your gold bars. I have accidentally bumped the button to add more moves when I have had NO intention of doing so. A button to confirm purchase would prevent these accidental purchases..Version: 1.125.2
No internet issue on gameThis is the only game I have this issue with! Having said this, I have a ton of games including Candy Crush Friends and none of them have shown any issues with the internet. I have a good strong set of bars on my tablet (iPad) and even Friends works beautifully, but Soda keeps telling me I’m offline and can’t give me bonuses or points to my team effort. It does this and then will go back to being online for a while then repeats! This is very irritating and has no other reason for it’s behavior than some glitch in this app. I turn my tablet off regularly (usually in the evening for 5-10 minutes) to let it “sleep” and reset. I also checked to see if there was any updates I had missed. If there’s anything else it could be on my end, please let me know so I can attempt to cure it’s issues..Version: 1.166.4
Still one of the best game groupings to a non gamerI've found all the king games that I've played to very temperamental. Randomly shutting down. It's quite annoying. Shame cause I used to spend money on it and find these quite well conceived games but I don't waste my money anymore due to the temperamental and random crashes.
Update: I’ve been nearly addicted off and on for the last few years. I feel the games are well designed but I have a few issues.
1) ok, I’m an adult and addicted to games geared toward the young but the “hint” motions of the pieces are very distracting and I think unfair. They should be an option like a toggle whether you want them engaged or not.
2) the games used to be straightforward and with enough variables to keep it interesting but they have gotten cluttered for my taste. It’s like visiting a horder, you used to enjoy their company and visit frequently but the environment became claustrophobic and uncomfortable
3) I believe it is pure evil to make chocolate a source of stress
Update: kudos to you guys for the unlimited lives during a crisis. I’m certain it does help many during this stressful time. We all need a good distraction sometimes and a lot of people like this game for good reason. I know it eases my stress. Thanks!.Version: 1.164.1
Loosing boostersI really like this game but am not happy that when my old phone died and I switched to a new one I lost all of the boosters I have earned and saved. The crappy thing is the response that the game keeps it on your device HOWEVER that makes NO SENSE because my candy crush transferred everything over but not on soda! So why does one do it and not the other. I will probably stop playing because when your that high up in levels the boosters you worked for come in handy and now I have none so I’m not going to pay or play one level forever because they choose not to give you your boosters back. That is bad service and a bad design flaw that they can and know how to fix but choose not too. Make your customer happy let us keep our boosters don’t punish us for getting new phones..Version: 1.123.2
Where are the helpful ads?I can not watch ads anymore, what happened?.Version: 1.197.7
Crashes reliablyOne thing you can count on is this game crashing continuously, taking your 5 lives and any time sensitive bonuses with it!
Frustrating when you earn 'infinite lives' for a period of time, but the game continually kicks you out during that time.
Seems almost to be a 'by design' feature.
If the game was more stable, it would be a 5 star..Version: 1.97.2

Love the game, been playing it for years.Only one problem is all boosters are lost when I agreed to new terms and I can’t seem to get into a discussion page to find any info out about how to get them back. It signed me out and I logged back in, got coins back and most other things back, but not boosters!!!! Help!.Version: 1.196.2
Offensive ad in appI don’t know how else to make King aware that I had daughters and granddaughters and find that the ad for Texas Holden that pops up without a way to cancel without it playing to the end if offensive. The ending choice that of chips or undress is, to me, totally unsuitable for what professes to be game suitable for 4 and up..Version: 1.196.2
NiceI love this game it’s cool I play candy crush saga and in that game there’s long ads. Like I think they should like make the ads Five seconds only there are five second ones but sometimes it 30 seconds so make it five seconds only I have a questionSo I saw a news articleIt’s said if you play candy crush it hurts your brain is it fake or real.Version: 1.195.6

Fun but a downsideCandy crush is a classic always enjoyed... but disappointed when they were tracking how many levels you beat per week for weekly prizes and it was just your Facebook friends... but now changed to random people who beat 110 levels per week who aren’t my friends lame 👎🏼 are they even real people?.Version: 1.188.5
