Candy Crush - HTML5

Hello all,

I would like to give you some information as to why the appearance of the game has changed for some of you.

Traditionally, Flash has been the standard software on which the games are created and run. HTML5 is a newer technology that is faster, more efficient and more secure for you and your devices.

Due to this, a lot of tech firms, including Apple, Microsoft and Mozilla are now phasing out support for Adobe Flash and moving towards other more stable and secure options, namely HTML5.

Here at King we also in the process of moving all our games onto a HTML5 platform.

You can read more about it here:

https://care.king.com/en/blog/article/is-your-browser-ready-for-html5

During this transition certain browsers, e.g Internet Explorer and Safari, may experience temporary or permanent issues in loading the game. We recommend using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Opera to ensure a smooth, playing experience.

You can download either of these from the following links:

https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/upgrade.html

http://www.opera.com/computer

The transition to HTML5 might also mean that certain features will not be available for the time being.

Kind regards,

Johnny

I guess I am stuck with the new "mess"_want the old computer version back__new on my computer is just like the mobile version which I don't play unless away from home_
Sandra J Bergman Two months ago
I do not like this new update, change it back. I will not be playing as I been playing for years and I have spent a lot of money on boosters and will not spend anymore money until the old version comes back. I do not play on my phone, so I'd like to have the old version back on my pc.

Change it back to the larger screen format. The game as it is now looks like a cheap version of the game !!!

I have Chrome and my game updated. It is way too small and I am no longer offered candies. This may be the end of playing for me. It is no longer fun.

This new format is trash. I have a 17inch screen and the game itself is played on a tiny proportion in the centre of the screen. Its blurry to look at, it doesnt function properly - my pc  mouse is a nightmare - just highlights the rest of the screen that isnt the game half the time --  and once again the ability to play for candy drops has disappeared. If it aint broke, dont fix it. Stop messing about with it.

I will not be playing this version of Candy Crush...this is the absolute worse thing that they could have done. None of my boosters remain, can't request lives, total rubbish...at least it ended my addiction :/
Becky Mauk Three months ago
Are you playing the game in a browser? Do you have Windows 8 or 10?If you said yes to these questions, then why don't you go to the Windows store and download the Windows version of Candy Crush Saga? When you launch the windows version you can log into your King account to set the game to you current level. You can also log in to your Facebook also. Go to the lower left corner of the first screen and click on the "gear icon" to bring up the Options, Click on the King icon to log into King or click the F icon to log into Facebook. You will have 0 boosters though since boosters are stored on your device. When you run the game, at first it is not in a full screen mode, all you have to do is press "F11" to switch to a full screen.

Hello Jeanette. This is a change in technology that needs to take place. If we do not move the game over to HTML 5 then it will no longer be available. Therefore we have to adapt the game so it's appearance will change as we update it.
fb_1377356872561075 Three months ago Edited three months ago
Hi Johnny, you said this weeks ago and then changed the game back to its original format. My husband's version is exactly the same as its always been.... so what you are saying is rubbish. Its present incarnation is an abomination, unplayable and no fun. I only "play" the game now by making one move then quitting. Its the only way to send back my friends' requests for a life. I am unable to return them a life until I am below 5. Jeanette
Jeanette Joyce Three months ago Edited three months ago
Johnny you know that's not true. My husband's version is the original one... no changes at all... so just change it back please. (Oh and why did the administrator choose not to publish my previous, very measured and honest comment?
Jeanette Joyce Three months ago
This is the same for me, my version is changed and my husband's is the original one. Please change it back, this new version is not good and I expect it will stop me from playing as it is no longer fun!!!

I have four accounts.. all played on Chrome and only ONE [the one where I am at the highest level] has been changed to the "new" format with no wheel and no collecting sugar drops plus a tiny screen. I will quit Candy Crush if they don't change it back.  Total bs..

This is clearly a launch of a redo, since it is active in both Firefox and Chrome.  Even with a Firefox refresh, I couldn't get the game back to the old way.  The new way, the music sounds terrible, the visuals are cheap, and the game play isn't smooth.  No more Candy Crush for me.

I'm wondering about sending and requesting lives with the new format - when I click on the ask friends a list of random friends come up - I'm not even sure which play CC and which don't.  If I try and type a name in the search field of some of my friends who send lives back and forth they aren't even listed.  We are used to being able to request and send any time and now I can't even find them - which - with new levels out today - is very annoying.  I hope sugar drops are coming back soon.  also - its pretty glitchy when I'm playing - my desktop, windows 7, chrome - latest version.  I never played CC on my phone cuz I hated how it was - I guess now I don't have a choice but I hope you can make it better - especially the sounds which are totally annoying.

Hello. This is now the design and look of the game. As mentioned in the main post, the appearance of the game has changed with the move to HTML 5.

Johnny, your comment above says that during transition, certain features will not be available for the time being. About how long does that mean? It really isn't any fun playing without those features. Thanks.

I've never used anything but Google Chrome playing Candy Crush Sage. Yet when you made your changes, nothing is working any more. It tells me it is a problem with Flash - but Flash works elsewhere. I understand you are switching over. If I can't do that easily or without hurting other things I'll just have to walk away I guess. But Google Chrome does not automatically work. I rarely can get or send any help to friends as I could before. Only occasionally can I spin for items. The game is barely functional any more.

My game changed under Chrome so I checked Internet Explorer and it is the older version with the sugar drops, dreamworld, etc. So I guess I will use IE to play Candy Crush. If that one changes I am out.

I'm also using Chrome and have the exact same score as you. I have had problems with HTML5 with other sites and have found it's unreliable compared to Adobe Flash.

PLEASE go back to the old version. Making the effects possibly seizure-inducing has nothing to do with flash. The update is atrocious, juvenile and nauseating.

The new version is worse. In what way is it a better version? It is frustrating to play Candy Crush now and keeps crashing. keep it up and you will lose players. Why fiddle with something that worked great for a terrible new format. Get your act together :(

Excuse me, but the purpose of an upgrade is to make something better. Now, the version is the worst you could have. Very poor and bad quality. This means clearly that you don't care about the people who play the game and most of them are complaining. I suppose that in the next days, if you don't have a solution, most of us are going to stop playing. We want to turn back into the latest version. That's a shame.

I can't play on this small screen size. Please tell me you are going to fix it. Also why did I lose the helmet I had yesterday when I opened the game today on my iPhone? We work hard to get these boosters and it is really frustrating when they just disappear for no reason

King, what the hell have you done to Candy Crush Saga? Since you changed it, it hasn't worked properly at all, in actual fact it is deplorable. I play through gameroom & Facebook and both are now total crap! No more gold bars, no more treasure chests, Odus the owl has disappeared, when I run out of lives and go to ask friends it doesn't list my fellow CC players but just random non players. The spin wheel doesn't move. I got up to a reasonable level of 1124 and it doesn't post to Facebook timeline once I complete a level anymore. So what's going on? I asked a similar question the other day and got a reply which was just a load of tripe really about Google Chrome browser and then you blamed it on flash player, then my internet speed and tons of other non relevant excuses, basically anything but the right answer and I find this an insult to my intelligence. Because the real reason is that you've screwed it up completely. I play on Mozilla Firefox as well as Chrome and every other page and non king game works absolutely fine. So the problem lies with you changing the format. Please change it back to how it once was; a game loved and played by thousands of intelligent people otherwise it is time to walk away for me after all the hours and hard work we put into playing this game. It was fine as it was so why go and ruin everything, what an idiot.

The new version does not have sugar drop levels.   The graphics lack definition.   Options do not stay set so I have horrible music and sound effects every time I enter.    Only a fraction of the browser screen space is used. (Yes I know I can enlarge each time, but you gotta be kidding - I'm not gonna do that!).   The look and feel is similar to the (inferior) tablet version.  Oh - and I'm on Chrome.  It's not the browser that's the problem.   It's the inferior craftmanship on the switchover.     I'll check for a few more days - and if it doesn't revert I'm out.   Probably a good thing for my life.   Sell your King stock :-)

I AM using Chrome.  Same situ as everyone else.  Bring back full screen.  Also, bring back ability to ask "Candy Friends" for help unlocking episodes.   Currently it only gives me a few of my Facebook contacts at a time, most of whom are NOT Candy Crush players.

I'm having the same issue - we have two accounts and both use Microsoft Edge.  With my account when I loaded the game, it looks like the mobile game, my husband's account is still the original format.  Same PC, same browser.  I do not like the mobile game format. I want the original back!

It is now more often unavailable than available. The fish swim so slowly across the screen I have time to go to the local pet shop to buy one whilst waiting. No more sugar drops. no way to give friends lives ......  In what way is this an improvement?

I understand the switch to HTML5, however, with the switch, I lost my owl night levels. Has that part of the game been deleted? Also, a local friend has not had any changes to her formatting, but she uses the same browser. This seems quite odd to me.

Exactly, I also asked a friend and she hasn't seen any change in Candy Crush Saga. Was away and didn't play for 2 weeks and then "shock and awe" what happened. Someone else mentioned the new graphics make the game childish. I am really disappointed, this may be the end for me playing this or any other games

Hello,

I was playing Candy Crush on my Facebook account, using Chrome, then Mozilla (because CC was not working on Chrome  since a few wweks).  my Candy Crush display looks like the phone app as per today and I have lost all my boosters (I had 153 sucettes, 35 hands and a lot of others).  My level was at 2285 and this is awful.  The wheel does not work.  My wife also plays and still has the oldest version.  Please put the oldest version back and recover my boosters please

I'm an IS project manager, so I understand the need to move away from Flash. However, it was short-sighted to not have any usability experts test the game before rolling it out. What works on mobile rarely translates smoothly to desktop - that's why responsive is the new standard. The game does not resize well to larger browsers (the board remains small and blurry) and it's lost functionality, like notification of how many lives you have left during play. I cannot imagine this meets accessibility/ADA standards in the US. Also the captcha on your Contact Us is broken. If you use SmartForms, the newest version will correct the captcha issue, I recommend fixing it so users can send feedback privately instead of publicly which can only cause you to lose users.

I agree.  This new format stinks.  Difficult to see the clear jelly, screen is small, and when i accept lives that friends have sent to me, it doesn't add them.  It's horrible. The older format was working fine. It's sad to say that on level 1618, may be my last level...I've tried it all day, and just hate it.

The new format sucks. It is slow, annoying, sometimes it says - there was an issue, we are trying our best to fix it. Are you?! Are you really trying?!! Sometimes I can not access CC on Facebook AT ALL, and I have tried EVERY browser there is. On mobile I am on Level 2024. on FB and Ipad on Level 2020. It doesn't synchronise AT ALL for two weeks now. Everything about this new format sucks.

King is heading the direction of Zynga!. I quit playing zynga's game, because they did not listen to consumer. Now this pathetic downgrade of graphics. There are stunning HTML5 graphics, and they decided to use a cell phone version. Cheap and greedy. There are millions of other games on the planet. If you are getting stuck in a level in candy crush, this version will literally make you quit. That is what I am doing now.

Johnny, you say above that the transition to HTML5 might also mean that certain features will not be available for the time being. Most of them are not available so what does "for the time being" mean? How long will that be? The game is not fun without these features so I sure hope we get them back real soon!

OK, so most of us know this is now total crap on the PC. Still fine on my iPad, but I mostly play on PC. I can't see lives left, I can't see so many options that I previously could. It's a complete and massive FAIL.I can't swap a candy without a circle with a cross through it appearing. If I enlarge the size (as pathetically suggested) it lowers the resolution and staggers the game play.WRONG WRONG WRONG King. You stuffed up. ADMIT IT AND SORT IT!

As of today, Candy Crush looks like the HTML5 version has been updated.  It is better than the 1/2 screen and bad music from last week.  HOWEVER, the playing area is too small compared to the overall game layout, and the movement of the game is not nearly as nice as it used to be.  The game is now tolerable, but it isn't nearly as fun and smooth as the old version.

The same browser on the same computer, but when different people play some get FLASH some get HTML5. While I appreciated the move to HTML5, it is not ready for human consumption. 2.3gigs of Resident Memory for Candy Crush? Are you mad?Black screen, can't see anything.Super long load times.Get the bugs worked out first. We aren't planning on playing again until you do.

Lvl 2282 using Chrome & it takes waaayyy too long to load the game, same reason I don't play on my phone or pad.  Obviously, this was a bad decision & hopefully, you will fix soon or you will lose yet another player.

I've never used anything but Google Chrome playing Candy Crush Sage. Yet when you made your changes, nothing is working any more. It tells me it is a problem with Flash - but Flash works elsewhere. I understand you are switching over. If I can't do that easily or without hurting other things I'll just have to walk away I guess. But Google Chrome does not automatically work. I rarely can get or send any help to friends as I could before. Only occasionally can I spin for items. The game is barely functional any more.Please help me

I do support the upcoming HTML5 version, but I HIGHLY OPPOSE that this version is identical to the mobile version. It should keep all web-exclusive features without the loss of boosters and stuff, to avoid player frustration.

Unfortunatley, the upcoming HTML5 version clones mobile ones because if web exclusive features are added, they will ALSO COME to mobile. So the HTML5 version will not be different from mobile expert some events, like in ccjs where some events found in mobile are absent.

I hate the new version.. Takes forever to load the game. When I want to request lives from friends, I only get a random few from my fb friends to choose from, most of whom don't even play the game. Starting to play other games as CC has become painful.

My CCS was updated  just now (on my PC) and I'm very sad you felt it necessary to use HTML5. I really really dislike this version and how it runs. Like others said, it's blurry and I can hardly move candies with my mouse. I think this is the end for me :-(

For those with desktops/laptops who are not using the "Facebook Gameroom" app and are complaining about the size of the game (i.e., the "box" in which the current level is played on), just use your mouse to change the size of the browser screen. To increase it, hold down the "ctrl" (control) key and simultaneously move the mouse wheel "forward" (further from you). If you don't use a mouse, simultaneously hold the ctrl and the number pad's plus (+) sign. To decrease the screen size with a mouse, hold down the ctrl key and move the mouse "backward" (closer to you). Without a mouse, ctrl and minus (-) sign. To reset the screen size to "normal," ctrl and the number zero. You should be able to use your browser's View/Zoom setting, as well.If you are using the "Facebook Gameroom" app on your desk/laptop, use the plus and minus signs at the top right to change the screen size.Note that no matter which method you use, when you close the app/browser, you'll have to redo the screen size the next time you run/play it.

I have used the zoom to enlarge it but it looks like crap fuzzy and out of focus.Maybe king games should have made sure HTML5 was as good as or better than flash.Someone got taken

it's not html5 itself that's the problem. it's the bad implementation using html5. and no one is going to want to re-size every time he/she enters the game. nor reset options. you have to wonder if they test this stuff for usability at all.

This HTML5 Updates version is one of Rotten Rubbish Update ever! so I Extremely Oppose for this Update because sometime some of mechanism Web and Mobile are completely differents or some of them are not working!!! or even progress are completely Lost. so Please Do Not Update into HTML5 but If become like that then i will quit playing the CCS!!! Anymore!!! but not only this and also its have negativity on Candy Crush Saga Wikia. because mostly use the Web versions are much much Helpful.

I'm sorry to say this. Now, flash is starting to be obsolete. All facebook games will be soon forced to be in html5 format and can cause conflicts so if you see this more times, you'll get back as before. As what the main post said, HTML5 is something unfinished version for now so give feedback so they can even update it a lot. Once Flash is obsolete, you may move on to html5 "Unrelated to the topic: Many features I develop for my games are a great success"

Absolutely hate this new version, not only is awful to look at and play but most of my friends have disappeared and I can't send or receive lives even when the requests are in my notifications on facebook.  I would like the old version back please.

I have never seen a more brain-dead change than this. Perhaps they have trained monkeys to code HTML5 because it's sure what it looks like. I once was someone that didn't mind tossing a few $ once in awhile at boosters and such for King games. No more. Done with King games because it's simply a matter of time before they destroy the entire franchise. Time ot find a new franchise/game set to enjoy. Good luck with that!!

My update just rolled out a week or so ago. Look at all these complaints from 2 months ago, I am realizing that perhaps this is the new normal. I spent a little money on the game from time to time, but never again on this format. It sorta reminds me of an Atari game from back in the day. I'm out!

I didn't ask this so my question is not dublicate. I am playing only by mobile (tablet and phone) and last update in Finland 22.5.2017 made game more flickering and 3D. It is causing migraine to me and it means end of playing this game. One reason of playing Candy Crush Saga has been that it has not been flashed/blinked that much as many other games. Is it possible to add some setting that player can decide if you want blinking or not?

Why does this new version automatically check boosters for me, I have lost so many because I didnt notice. I should only be one picking the boosters.

7/8/17 I hope you have your computer wizards working overtime; and please pay them, to FIX these many problems you caused to make us all HATE CANDY CRUSH. I don't have a cellphone and only play on my laptop. When you finally fix it, please give a detailed description of what every user is to do to update it according to the server they are using and use terms we can all understand. Also, please include deleting history, cache' etc. Thank you. We'll see how long this takes.. if it were FB, they would have it solved already with secure information on fixing everyone's computer.                    x
