When one runs out of moves in Candy Crush for iOS, what is the paying option for?

It shows a +5 number and a lollipop saying that I only need 1 more jellys and the price of $0.99

enter image description here

I'm surprised that they don't put more information about what it's being offered.


If you pay the $0.99, you will get:

  • 5 more moves
  • 3 Lollipop boosts

You can still lose, even with 5 more moves. If you do, you'll be back on this screen again. Thus, if you don't think you can win with just 5 moves, this is probably a terrible deal. (Although I think it is a terrible deal all the time, but that's me)

The lollipop boosts can be used anytime, and they will break a candy in a single square, with all the effects that entails - so they will clear jelly underneath the candy, for instance.

Paying for this has no effect on your lives - paying for extra lives is a different thing altogether.

  • You forgot to mention that most people who buy things like this quickly become addicted and end up spending way too much money on them ;) – Mkalafut May 5 '14 at 15:38
  • @Mkalafut The addiction or compulsion to games may be due to game designers designing the game as a virtual Skinner Box – rraallvv May 16 '14 at 5:59
