Remember, there was a time when all we used to play on our phones was either Temple Run or Candy Crush Saga. In fact, the latter had become a huge rage instantly and it was one of the most downloaded and played games for a while. It wasn’t anything new. In fact, it was just an old product in a new package. Candy Crush Saga was an application that could be downloaded for free and that is what first of all led the video game to become an instant hit amongst everyone. The game was very easy to play. All you had to do was match three or more blocks of the same colour and as they got destroyed, you would be able to reach a higher level. The simplicity of the game caught onto everyone’s attention and people of all age groups happily flocked to it for entertainment. Other advantages of Candy Crush Saga were that it was highly engaging. The visuals were bright and the background score was such that it could be identified from a distance. In fact, you would be even more taken aback to know that though it was launched in 2012, it continued to be at the top of the charts for years to come. It could be played anywhere and seemed to be an escape from reality or boring situations.
Candy Crush Saga was surely addictive. But, just as nothing is spared from the sickle of social media and memes, Candy Crush Saga too was caught on. There were innumerable jokes about the game and those who played it. But guess what? There is no negative publicity. Every little conversation is also publicity and that is what definitely gave a kick further to the interest that people had in the game. Facebook played a major role in providing it a boost because people could play it on Facebook as well. Though I must admit the innumerable Candy Crush requests each day made it very annoying for quite some time. Just as the name is, Candy Crush Saga was truly a saga that will not be forgotten any time soon.
However, you would be mistaken if you feel that Candy Crush Saga is likely to make a huge comeback. This is because every game has a life. There are constant new launches in the cyber world. Several games are placed in the app store as well as play-store almost every other day. In fact, top mobile game of 2018 are PUBG, Pokemon Go and Alto’s Adventure to name a few. Although Candy Crush Saga can still be a hit if it hits the markets again with new creations and novelty, it seems like a too distant thought because no such news has reached us yet. However, we admit to have loved the game at one point of time and you were also considered really cool if you have successfully reached the higher levels of the game. It surely needed a lot of concentration and patience!
