Welcome to my Candy Crack app review.
Unless you swing more towards savoury food, the chances are that most of you enjoy the taste of sweet food and the look of it.
Well, recently, I was doing a bit of research on what new opportunities were surfacing when I came across this new aesthetically pleasing game called Candy Crack.
As it sounds, it is a game based around sweets, but funnily enough, that isn’t the main attraction or the reason this game has blown up massively in the last few weeks.
That is because what looks to be a sweet and innocent game is claiming users can cash out some tidy sums of money.
I’m not talking a few bucks, not at all, instead we looking at giant sums in the range of $3000.
So as you have guessed by now, this post will be covering how exactly can you make thousands of dollars playing a game based on your favourite sweets.
Well, if you want to know how it works, you better stick around to the end of this post because your certainly not going to want to miss what I have to say about them.
Candy Crack App Review Summary
- Owner: Sophia Games
- What Are They?: Puzzle Game
- My Worth It Rating: 1/5
What Is Candy Crack?
Instead of crushing your favourite candy, like you would be doing with a very popular game, with Candy Crack, you are cracking sweets from a grid in return for what you would hope to be some nice moola.
Candy Crack is a puzzle game created by Sophia Games, people who have made block blasting types of games their niche, with apps like Onet Puzzle and Block Puzzle under them too.
Now whatever they are doing is working as all their games have big boy numbers of 100’000 installs.
However, while it has been working for them since they are likely making good money from the videos, it’s not exactly working or gone down well with the users.
Across their other games, multiple reviews are dubbing them as fake, which is hard to look at.
But as you would suspect with developers like this one who have poor reputations and the owners with no names to them, the response is to continue making more games that are exactly the same.
How Doe’s It Work?
Candy Crack is essentially a spin-off of those games, where you swap items such as candy to remove a combination of them from the grid.
It works just like the game Candy Crush, which has accumulated billions of installs. With that formula working so effectively, other developers use it and put their own spin on it.
Even if it’s only small changes such as just changing the name and a few types of puzzle pieces.
Now when it comes to getting into the game, something shocked me.
That was the cheekiness of showing me an advert before I have even touched base.
You see the screenshot below. Well, basically, it’s apparently a daily gift.
However, it’s not exactly the most generous gesture because you must watch a video to start playing.
This sets the tone and prepares you for what’s to come regarding being shown ads one after another.
Once you get past that screen, you have the expected set-up of a 6×6 grid containing goodies.
You can get started straight away and play. You just tap on sweets in groups of 3 or more.
How To Make Money With Candy Crack?
As you smash through the sweets, you will organically start receiving cash bonuses in various ways.
Not only can a few dollars be earned through going through the levels, but you also have a prize spin as well as different types of chests which have rewards in them too.
Just like the daily gift you get at the start when money is seemingly offered to you, there are constant incentives to multiply these rewards by watching videos.
Interestingly this money is typically fake, so whether you get paid $1 for doing something or $100, none of it tends to be withdrawable; however, it does have people thinking that they are getting more money faster when it’s not the case.
The other opportunity, which I noticed was also glitched, is the iPhone tab in the bottom right corner of the game.
This takes you to a page wherein bold it says you can win big prizes, and while like with the cash, most likely people aren’t getting anything, there are big items shown.
You have everything from a PS5 to even just under 1 bitcoin, which is basically implying you can get 10’s of thousands of dollars from taking advantage of this feature.
How you get these ‘prizes’ is again through watching videos, and it is very straightforward but maybe too much.
How Do They Pay?
From the get-go of this Candy Crack app review, I have been alluding to the extortionate rewards.
While on the plus said and if were to pretend for a second that the developers’ payout, there are thousands of dollars within the store.
It starts at $1000, with two other amounts of $2000 and $3000 also visible.
So it was actually possible to get those amounts; it would be cool. However, it doesn’t look to be the case as they are so high.
This is for the cash, which shows PayPal/Cashapp rewards, but you also get given coins as you play.
These look to have value at first and, interestingly, have much cheaper amounts available to you.
An Amazon/Cash app starts at $50 and goes up to $200.
You have required 50 million coins for the lowest option, and for the highest option, 200 million of these coins is needed.
Important Details To Know About Candy Crack
Back in the day, when these apps were breaking onto the scene, there was one way of withdrawing.
This was for cash, and to withdraw, you needed to reach a threshold of around the $100 mark.
In those days, it looked a little less bait. However, now everything is blown way out of proportion.
The minimum threshold is $1000, and that even 0.85 Bitcoin is offered as a prize speaks massively for what these games are really about.
All these games are constantly thinking about what they can put into their games that will keep you interested and, importantly, will you have to invest your time.
For instance, the inclusion of Bitcoin will attract those who are desperate to earn money and get their hands on cryptocurrency.
The rewards and the incentives will continue to get greater, to the point where apps claim to give away a whole street of houses.
But never at any point, and it’s so crucial I tell you this straight, that any of these game developers will pay you anything.
So don’t go thinking that maybe they will pay me and that you are special because, honestly, they don’t care about any of their users.
The world is cruel, and these apps plus those behind them are prime examples of that.
Well, there you have it. That was my full Candy Crack app review, and as you can tell, I am not too much a fan of them.
In fact, I don’t like them with a passion because it’s so see through what the developers plans are and what they are trying to achieve with every release of each game.
Now I should say, making an app and monetizing it is completely fine. For many people, the dream is to make a successful game that accumulates millions of hits.
However, to go about it in a way where you are tricking people into playing your game and using shocking adverts to entice people to play it is wrong.
It’s not clever advertising, it’s just misleading, but at the end of the day, these companies will get away with it because they have found a way around it.
This includes putting in the small print that all rewards and prizes are given at their discretion.
Before I end here, I want to link to a post I made that might interest you.
It’s a list of 11 extra income apps that I recommend to make a bit of money online using your phone or laptop.
Luckily they are nothing like Candy Crack, and all have good records with paying collectively millions of people online.
If you have any questions, throw them my way before. If not, I will see you in the next post.
