This game is perfect for lovers of Candy Crush. It takes match-3 puzzle games to a whole new level by adding a multiplayer component to it. Now, you not only match 3 of the same kind but also can compete with your friends and see who is better at it. The multiplayer element is real time to add to the fun and challenge. Of course, if you would like to improve your own skills before going into multiplayer, you can always switch to single player. Your prime competition is yourself and practice makes a man perfect. Once you have mastered the game yourself and feel you are prepared enough, you can jump into multiplayer.
