Candy Crush Soda Saga is a sequel to the original game Candy Crush Saga by King Digital Entertainment PLC, a multi billion dollar company founded in 2003 with its headquarters located in Dublin and Stockholm. Soda Saga is a second installment of one of the most popular mobile game ever created and while the main game mechanics remain the same, there are quite a few differences between the original game and Soda Saga.
Two different games
Unlike most game sequels where the storyline continues throughout the series, Candy Crush Soda Saga is an altogether different and standalone game so you’re not really required to have played the first one in order for Soda Saga to make sense to you. You will still notice many similarities in the game, but most of the characters have changed as well as the environment and level maps so if you got bored with the first version, make sure to try out Soda Saga for a completely new and fresh experience.
The basics of Soda Saga
The game engine and other technical aspects of Soda Saga are similar to many popular puzzle games where the main goal is to match three items, in this case candies, in order to gain points. Like many other similar games Soda Saga also has a timer that you need to beat in order to win so there’s very little room for you to search for color combinations. Luckily the correct combination starts to flash on the screen if it takes too long for you to find it so it’s not really one of those impossibly difficult games where you have to figure out everything on your own.
Soda Saga Gameplay
Candy Crush Soda Saga consists of many different levels with the difficulty of each puzzle getting more and more complex as the player progresses. Fortunately the developers have made the progression towards more complex levels easy and seamless so you shouldn’t really have too much difficulty in beating the game if you start from level one and move your way up from there. If you get stuck and have no clue what to do next, you’ll find that a yeti monster (as seen on the above screenshot) will come and provide helpful tips and tricks that help you move on to the next level.
Awesome sound effects
One of the main differences I found while playing Candy Crush Soda Saga game online were the sound effects and especially the rather deep male voice shouting out different words like Juicy, Soda, etc. whenever you go on a candy crushing frenzy or do other spectacular stuff. I haven’t really noticed these kinds of sound effects in order similar games and it really does make a huge difference in terms of the overall feel and setting of the game.
