Player’s complete levels by swapping color-coordinated candies on a game board in order to form a match of three or more of the same color. Once a match is formed, the candies are removed from the board and replaced with new candies, which may result in further matches. Combines of four or more candies result in the creation of one-of-a-kind candies that act as power-ups and have a greater ability to clear away the board. Board games have a range of objectives that must be completed in a specific number of moves or within a specified amount of time, such as achieving a specific score or collecting a specific number of a particular type of candy, among others.
The game is divided into several levels, each of which must be completed in the proper order. With each level, the user is presented with a new challenge, such as achieving a minimum score in a specified number of moves or clearing candies in a specified number of moves in order to bring special ingredients to their respective locations at the bottom of the board. Boards can be positioned in a variety of ways, and some may include special spaces with their own set of rules, such as jelly-covered spaces that must be cleared by making a match on that particular space. Upon achieving the level’s objective, the player is awarded one to three stars based on their performance and is allowed to proceed to the next level. Otherwise, they will lose one life and will have to start over. After running outside from lives, the player must wait for a period of real-world time while their lives regenerate before attempting the level again. Completed levels can be replayed if the player so opts.
