Yes, I can understand that they're wanting to maximise revenue, but I'm sure that some levels are fixed so that they're physically impossible unless you play them over and over or buy the fecking cheats ( which I refuse to do).

Angry Birds is hard on some levels, but at least you have the same scenario and birds each time, so you don't have to wait until an achievable bird scenario comes along. This game is pissing me off now, because I'm sure they deliberately give you unsolvable combinations most of the time.

Lol I have been stuck on level 219 for weeks now and, rather than making me want to buy the cheats it's just stopped me plaing

Pancakeflipper Mon 06-May-13 14:47:53

I am on that chocolate level and I have refused to pay a penny. Even had to wait 24hrs to open a quest ( 3 times). I refuse to pay, it's a point of principal now and I could be on my current level forever.

TallyGrenshall Mon 06-May-13 14:50:22

I'm the same as Nokids

I've been stuck on level 208 for about 2 weeks now and it's just making me not want to play it. I wouldn't ever spend money on it

MardyBra Mon 06-May-13 14:52:49

Interestingly I'm also on 208 Tally but only started today. I can just tell its not giving me the right colour combinations to be even able to attempt to achieve the level. 2 weeks confused

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Mon 06-May-13 14:55:11

I can't understand how adults get hooked on this shite. I really can't. Go and do something useful or creative instead!

TallyGrenshall Mon 06-May-13 14:56:30

When I'm finish work at midnight, I have no desire to do anything useful or creative.

I want to sit and do something mindless to wind down

MardyBra Mon 06-May-13 14:56:40

Well each to their own Neo. Posting on MN isn't exactly a productive hobby either.

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Mon 06-May-13 14:58:20

Mardy it can be. MN is quite educational at times..

MardyBra Mon 06-May-13 14:59:10

Maybe. But I waste way too much time on here when I could be productive elsewhere.

mirai Mon 06-May-13 14:59:19

Agreed. I'm completely stuck on 102 and I've just stopped playing.

LegoAcupuncture Mon 06-May-13 15:00:07

Im stuck n 147. Someone tell me how to do it!

MardyBra Mon 06-May-13 15:02:20

There's a candy crush quiche in Chat lego.

LEMisdisappointed Mon 06-May-13 15:04:03

level 135 here, i wouldnt pay anything i have just got bored and might play once in a while

MardyBra Mon 06-May-13 15:04:31

For lego and queries about individual levels:

www.mumsnet.com/Talk/_chat/1714713-I-think-the-Candy-Crush-quiche-is-over-90-days-old-and-has-disappeared-shock?msgid=38854618

The answer will invariably be stick with it or spend a bloody fortune.

LegoAcupuncture Mon 06-May-13 15:04:40

Is there?

Back to topic, I've been stuck for weeks, can get it down to one last jelly but refuse to buy 5 more goes. I've given myself until the end of the week then deleting the game.

I am sure you are right, OP. It makes me very cross - and the fact that I succumb, and buy the power-ups makes me even crosser with myself.

Kasterborous Mon 06-May-13 15:04:54

I agree the level I'm on now 98 I think is like that and I refuse to pay any money out. It seems like they want you to spend money before I even start this level.

MardyBra Mon 06-May-13 15:05:55

I bet they love you SDTG. Manipulative bastards.

Groovee Mon 06-May-13 15:07:45

My friend managed to finish it and start their new game, Farm Hero's

nannynick Mon 06-May-13 15:08:13

I am waiting for a boat ticket. Takes me ages to get those tickets to progress, lack of FBfriends who play.

Like all games, it's a bit of pointless fun, though I suspect like many games it does keep the brain matter in good condition - though I wish my brain would see a couple of moves ahead. Good chess players see many moves ahead I think... Suppose good candycrush players are the same. Alas I rarely see more than the current move.

catlady1 Mon 06-May-13 15:08:44

Haha, I've been stuck on level 30 for weeks! I clearly have no hope. Although to be fair I only play it when bfing DD all day and all night

SucksToBeMe Mon 06-May-13 15:12:45

It is fixed! If you hold off playing for a few days it will send down all the correct combinations so you blitz the level! <paranoid>

I'm stuck on 103.

Parker231 Mon 06-May-13 15:13:28

Am totally hooked - am up to 130 but stuck !

CouthySaysEatChoccyEggs Mon 06-May-13 15:18:10

It's a good time waster in between jobs. I was stuck on lvl 30 for two bloody weeks, but am now on lvl 58 just two days later.

It does help bring able to see 2/3 moves ahead.

Some of the combinations ARE unsolvable.

I now HATE chocolate squares...wink

I refuse to pay for power ups. tight arse
