Forget Kim Kardashian, Candy Crush was the original “breaker of the internet.” When the game was released in 2012, it was originally on Facebook. The popularity skyrocketed and it was re-released in app form for iOS, Android, and Windows phones not long after. Candy Crush Friends, Candy Crush Soda, and Candy Crush Jelly are just as big, each pulling in high ratings in app stores. If you were into Candy Crush, here are some similar apps that we think will give you hours of puzzle fun.
Top 3 matching and puzzle games like Candy Crush
1. Bubble Witch 3 Saga
Like the other popular Bubble Witch games, your goal is to help the Witch solve problems and save the little creatures in her village with their issues. Hold your finger down and a beam will shoot forward. Keep holding until you find an area with other clusters of bubbles of the same color, and then lift your finger to launch the bubble. Once you’ve cleared out all of the bubbles, you win! Hit larger clusters for more points. Freeing little owls and fairies from their little bubbly prisons has never felt so rewarding. Available on iOS and Android.
2. Farm Heroes Super Saga
You’re a dog named Biscuit who gardens. If that isn’t enough for you to download this app, you’ve also got magically fertilizing spray to help your crops grow faster. The only problem is that it was stolen in the middle of the night by your competitor, Rancid. Move fruits and vegetables (called Cropsies) vertically and horizontally to put the same type in a row, and the more you have, the more points you get. Collect the most before each nightly Country Show to morph your regular Cropsies into Super Cropsies, and you win. Who says you need magic to come out on top? Connect on Facebook and beat your friends’ scores too. Available on iOS and Android.
3. Cookie Jam
Cookie Jam is a super game where you match cookies and other sweets. You’re Chef Panda and the goal is to match as many of the same type of colorful French-style cookies as you can to make an order. You can move vertically and horizontally, and if you match pieces in ‘L’ or ‘X’ shapes you can form powerful bombs that will collect more cookies at a time. If you get stuck, cookies will blink and give you a hint. You can take your time, but don’t take too long or the order will fail. The aesthetics of this game will make you hungry, so make sure that your sweet tooth is satisfied before you start playing. Available for iPhone and Android.
All of these apps have cool holiday bonus themes and levels which makes them even more fun. What are you waiting for?
