5 games for Candy Crush Saga fans who want to take a break from all the candy


Much has been spoken of King's incredibly successful Candy Crush Saga. The title which borrows more than a little inspiration from the gaming classic 'Bejeweled' boasts hundreds of levels and many different modes of playing – racking up high scores, making the most with a limited number of moves, collecting ingredients to push through the bottom of the screen, and other entertaining concepts. The game is also notable for its literal eye-candy and toothachingly sweet realm that you can't help but spend lots of your precious time in.

But if you are getting a little bored with King's smash-hit, you're in for some good times. Candy Crush Saga never was the only cool kid in town. There are many games that could entertain you with the same jubilant experience of crushing crush-able objects while gazing at adorable graphics. We have chosen five games which we believe have what it takes to sway your attention away from King's original, at least for a while. Give them a go on a boring afternoon and see where it goes!

Could try Marvel PuzzleQuest, basically a bejeweled clone, but it has nice features/powerups and nice Marvel artwork/covers
