I’ve only just started playing the wildly popular Candy Crush Saga game on my iPhone, but already I can see some terrible habits emerging. For months I’ve watched as friends on Facebook curse jelly and beg for lives, but I didn’t have an inside view into all the hooplah. But now…oh, now I know.
For all of you frustrated Crushers, I thought I’d provide a safe place to hash out all the emotions and silly little tics we’ve developed playing this game. I invite you now to participate in…Candy Crush Confessions.
Being a relative newbie at the game, I’m sure the level 200-ers and above will scoff at my confessions, but I’ll start us off to get the ball rolling.
Counting down to a new life
Yes, I’ve stared at my iPhone screen, counting down the seconds until I have a fresh life and can swipe candy to my hearts content again.
I’ve also set my iPhone to notify me when I have full lives again. You know, in case I have to be feeding my kids or keeping the cat out of the dog’s jaws instead of staring at my iPhone screen.
Candy Crush can be a fun diversion, a pleasant trip through vacuous mental space. But it can also drive the sanest woman (or man) to foolishness. I’m wondering: what’s something you’ve done in the name of Candy Crushdom that made you shake your head at yourself?
What’s your Candy Crush Confession?
