Candy Crush Saga players don’t have to think about failing too many times because the wait timers have been momentarily disabled.
Candy Crush Saga, one of the most successful smartphone puzzle games, has introduced limitless lives for players until April 5 as part of the #PlayApartTogether campaign. This ‘unlimited life’ method is also possible for most other games by the developer King. Candy Crush Saga’s Twitter account shared this update saying that it has partnered with the World Health Organisation (WHO) As a means of adopting the criteria for physical distances. Android and iOS users can enjoy endless lives in the Candy Crush Saga right now.
Candy Crush Saga’s Twitter post reads: “We’ve partnered with @WHO to encourage our players to #PlayApartTogether. The best thing we can do to protect one another is to spend some time apart and follow physical distancing guidelines. To help, we’re offering unlimited lives across most of our games until April 5.” That ensures players will continue to play without having to wait or pay to start playing again, even though they fail levels too many times.
According to a post by The Verge, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Candy Crush Friends Saga, Candy Crush Jelly Saga, Bubble Witch 3 Saga, Pet Rescue Saga, and Farm Heroes Saga are the other IPs that are part of the program.
The Google Play Store and App Store page for the game states, “To make this time more playful we’re unlocking unlimited lives until April 5.”
#PlayApartTogether is an initiative taken by the games industry and WHO campaign to increase consciousness of the coronavirus pandemic. To respond to this program, 18 gaming business giants have joined this initiative by adding special events, exclusives, activities, rewards, and inspiration to their games. Such developers include Activision Blizzard, Amazon Appstore, Big Fish Gaming, Glu Mobile, Ubisoft, Zynga, and Riot Games, among others.
