Game Intro

A game publisher, King, released a lot of casual match-three puzzles under the Candy Crush franchise. One of them is Candy Crush Jelly Saga. It has new mechanics (e.g. of spreading Jelly over the field to defeat Jelly Queen), boosters, and bosses. The game also has a real-time mode for contests: players connect with their friends and solve puzzles in a PvP mode on a timer. There is, of course, a leaderboard to motivate players to set new scores. 

Candy Crush Saga is a first match-three series that has managed to get over $1 billion in revenue. Jelly, as a game from the series, is also incredibly successful: it has amazing ratings in app stores — players think it’s bright and fun. Apart from that, the title has over 3000 levels — and we created some of them.   

Our Contribution to This Game

Challenges & Goals 

After we agreed to partner with King, our team of level designers needed to learn how to use their tools for the job. We had to figure out all the components they cover in the level-building process (and their dynamics), plus understand the way they balance each level’s difficulty,  rewards/boons, and what puzzles they’d like to build. 

That was challenging — as it always is when you are working with other studios’ custom tools, trying to analyze their processes, and instilling yourself into them — but extremely fun. 


We’ve built several levels of different difficulty for Candy Crush: Jelly Saga using King’s roadmap & tools. 

Solutions & Expertise

Our game designers used King’s level design process roadmap and their custom tool for building Candy Crush’s levels. We’ve planned and crafted levels based on the concept of new puzzles and mechanics King’s team had in mind, spinning out their ideas into new level shapes, gameplay elements, and boosts and boons players received as a reward for each level.
