    Farm Heroes Saga is a farm fresh alternative to Candy Crush offering brand new enjoyment with valuable twists to make for a better matching experience.

    It's fair to say we've seen this sort of gameplay before in Candy Crush, but King has done a great job of modifying things to ensure that Farm Heroes Saga isn't as greedy a money-making machine. You'll get quite a bit of gameplay from it for no charge whatsoever, and the additional boosters and other goodies might just encourage you to stick around a little longer.

    There's a new freemium based Match-3 game to lose one's self to, and Farm Heroes Saga is a great example of the genre.

    This is probably King's best game on iOS since Candy Crush, though it still falls well short of it.

    Farm Heroes Saga is a nice match-3 puzzle game, with plenty of levels and some interesting elements, but it becomes boring after a while.

    Fun, functional, flat: Farm Heroes Saga is a re-skin of a previous King game that by this point everyone has played to death.

    Farm Heroes Saga offers a new scoring system to differentiate itself from Candy Crush Saga, but that new mechanic is ultimately undermined by level goals and pacing that is meant to challenge your wallet more than your mind.

    It's hard to find any reason to get excited over King's latest puzzler when all it is is just a re-skin of their previous game "Candy Crush Saga," which was already a re-skin of other developer's work. Granted it does sort of have it's own style by putting the emphasis on matching certain pairs, but the core gameplay is exactly the same. Odds are you've played this one a couple of different times only with a different skin.

    While there is nothing particularly wrong with it's gameplay it's an incredibly lazy effort from King. The pros are that it still has the ability to addict certain people and it is free to play. It's also one you can play without ever using the micro-transactions. The only reason to even think about using micro-transactions is if you just don't want any sort of challenge to come from the game, and where's the fun in that?

    So whether or not this is worth a download really just comes down to if you've already played a match three or more style puzzler before. If you have then skip this. If you haven't then go ahead and give it a download. It's been done a thousand times before, and I can recommend tons of better alternatives, but in the end it works and it can be fun at times. It's just incredibly lazy and you can tell King put no effort into releasing it at all.

    I don't know why I bother to do these reviews anymore, king is still going to try to take people's money and souls and the games are at the quality of a justin bieber song (tear inducing awfulness) disappointment for iOS games, here we come! Expand
