Candy Pop Duel is a new EOS based game developed the Neowiz Blockchain Lab. The game is all about combinatorial skills paired with a PvP approach and brought together with a well known and very successful game. Everyone who has ever played the Candy Crush will feel familiar and recognize lots of similarities.
In every round players compete for points which are earned by swapping colored pieces of candy on a game board to make a match of three or more of the same color, eliminating those candies from the board and replacing them with new ones. By combining more than three candies in different arrangements special types of candies are created which can then crush whole sets of colors, rows and columns. Points are counted for all crushed candies and every round is time restricted - so in order to win, crushing candies as much and as fast as possible is essential.
By combining one of the most successful mobile games ever with the possibility to earn cryptocurrencies through competition on different levels of skill, Candy Pop Duel has a lot to offer to all blockchain gamers and EOS enthusiasts.
By matching more than 3 candies in different arrangements one can create special candies which can crush more than just the matched ones when being combined respectively. There are four types of special candies which emerge from the combinations illustrated below. Trying to create as many of these special candies as possible will help to gain more points. Apart from having decent combinatorial skills, hurrying up is essential as time is running fast.
The game goes very fast, and combinations can be forced or will eventually happen over time while you are playing. It may be hard to strategize at first as you will lose time, and here, as it is a competition, time is crucial. Nonetheless, here are a few rules you may want to follow in order to kickstart your game and beat your opponent.
Matches at the bottom of the board can easily create chain reactions. As more candies from the top fall down, the likeliness of destroying more pieces and collecting a good amount of points increases. Moreover, focusing too much on the top of the board will limit moves and increase the chance of being stuck at some point.
If you don’t make a move for a few seconds, the game will suggest you a move by circling the candies in white. This is useful if you are stuck, especially for newer players, but don’t automatically use these matches because they do not always offer you the best option for combinations.
If you just make every match you can see without thinking, you’ll fail the harder levels. Look at how the candies are laid out and think about the moves you can make to create a follow up of actions where super candies are created and combinations are made.
Combos, like swiping a color bomb into a striped candy, are extremely powerful. If you can maneuver special candies together, they do a whole lot more good together than they would alone.
In almost every match you’ll play, there will be obstacles for you to get rid of (chained, boxed or iced candies). To get rid of them, simply make them part of a chain of candies of the same kind or crush some candies right next to it. Not getting rid of obstacles leads to less matching possibilities.
