3D map in Candy Crush Saga

Here at King we are always working hard to keep our games fun and exciting. This means that from time to time we may tweak and test certain features and designs. 

You may have noticed that your map in Candy Crush Saga has changed to appear 3D. 

We have created this thread so that you can share your thoughts on these changes. 

Love it?

Hate it?

We want to hear your thoughts :-) 

Have a sweet week!

Hate it.

* Make the (C) levels bouncy again!

* Make the map zoomable-out. In landscape operation it is unusably big.

* By the way. What's the point having 3D map in a completely 2D game with paper-like design?

Awful. Looks like some amateurish cartoon. Why do people insist on messing with things. If it isn't broken, don't fix it.

I strongly dislike the map, but I HATE the boards.  The candy doesn't switch as smoothly. It bothers my eyes. The new color bomb with lighting is irritating. The look reminds me of one of the spin off games (jelly possibly), that I didn't play because of the slow switches and exaggerated matches.  I am currently frozen on a roadblock at level 2615, so I have played the game a long time, however, this change is something that could end it for me.

Hate it. Takes too long to go back to old levels. And where are the bonus blinks?

I'll say this again, it's ugly, I easily know the type of unlocked levels and themes of unlocked episodes, Its not vertical, ect. I hate the new graphics inside the levels, real shiny candies, flashes. There was nothing wrong with the old ones. The new ones could probably make someone sick. Also don't necessarily like that when u switch a colorbomb with a normal candy it now does it one by one instead of getting all the same colored candies at once. There wasn't anything wrong with that either. It can prevent the passing of a level. Regarding the sugar drops, thankfully my vision is real good so I don't have a problem seeing the Cs. But sadly millions of your players dont. You really do need to change it back. If it ain't broke don't fix it!

I am asking them to revert it promptly, ignoring regular update times.

Just horrible. That perspective is dizzying and makes many things difficult to read/see. Barf.

I am playing on desktop and on Facebook. The new perspective of the map reminds me of the opening credits for Star Wars. It makes you dizzy when you scroll.

It now applies for HTML5. As I said, I oppose it, but adding more characters is definitely welcome. My tentative verdict is: Allow people to toggle between the two maps, defaulting on the original map. Both maps should be glitch free (the 3D map is now better though)

does the same for me a good description you give its awful;[

It looks cool, but otherwise is pointless. I agree about needing the zoom feature back & that it's way too large in landscape. Also, does this add to the load time? I've noticed it takes even longer to load now. Mainly at startup, but also going into each level. The new graphics during play also cause lag. I feel like a lot of time I spend "playing" is actually just waiting around!

But do you still oppose this revamp?
mulliganaceous Four weeks ago

Btw speaking about  (C) levels: if they are hard levels the sign "skull" completely closes the (c) sign, so because sugar drops levels don't bounce anymore players can not recognize them. 

For example the level 2569 is the (C) level, but you can't see it.

So far, my preliminary decision goes against the 3D background. However, certain features from the revamp can be integrated to the original mobile map:

Animated characters

Banners

All others should stay the same.

Unfortunately, king won't change back since they want to tweak features that have not changed since one or two years. All people should test new things. This one goes the same as the new headers in FANDOM. So I indeed it is not changed yet in HTML5 in where it will in the future.

We did have some minor design changes throughout the months for the mobile version. All of them are generally supported. This one is an EXCEPTION, and it is universally opposed.Unfortunately, the revamped map on mobile did not receive good ratings. Sorry about that; but I expect by the next update you will revert back to the old version.Thank you.

These features are being tested so we of course want to listen to the feedback of our great players, thank you all for taking this time :-)

I absolutely HATE it. It makes it really time consuming to scroll to the previous levels and it's so large that you can't see more than a couple of levels ahead. Unless it's changed back I will no longer be playing.

Hate it!!!! It's very difficult to go back on the map to play levels for bonuses. Also how do you send extra moves to friends stuck on a level? There is no <3 to click to help friends.

Really dislike this 3D version... in fact I thought, yesterday, when I first saw it that it was some sort of glitch that would soon be fixed.  Scrolling makes me feel sick and it's difficult to locate the numbers you want, it's way too large and the sugar drop levels no longer bounce. When we first changed to the new version that was good. No need to mess with it.

There was the old version, I think everyone liked that one. Then we got a new version, it took me a while to get used to it, but turned out okay. Now you've got an explosive version? With a 3D-map? I'm so NOT happy with this change. The scrolling (it became flying), the exploding, WHY? Do you guys really want to dig your own grave? I just hate it...

When are you going to schedule the next update. Again, for the next update, can you please remove the revamped map, and revert it back to the ordinary version?

From my "Remove the 3D map" post, you stated that it is in the early testing stages, and some features may be temporarily lost until that issue has been resolved. As always, you gave us the opportunity to review this revamped map.Currently, it is at an AGAINST stance (counting the lost features), but I am sure that the ratings will rise once you have fixed all the glitches the revamped map contains.At that time, for the next update, can you please allow players to toggle between the two maps, defaulting to the regular map. A dialogue should also pop up inviting them to try out the revamped map.

Difficult to tap levels when they appear on the sides because of the crowd of layered icons. And no weekly friend leaderboard anymore!

I hate it. I prefer the other layout, but if it has to stay I'll either get used to it or I'll quit playing. Period. If you want to change anything you should make ALL three games so you can go full screen. This is the only Facebook game I play that doesn't have that feature.

Ok to play on my 8in tab but difficult to navigate on my s7 edge phone. The pinch to zoom was a useful feature

I've got a little bit more used to it, but REALLY not a fan and think it has issues for people with disabilities in that it does provoke dizziness.  Given that Candy Crush is actually recommended to help people cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (and other issues where cognitive function around processing perception can be impaired) this is an issue.  Also, though this isn't strictly about the 3D but the graphics that came with it- they're really poor. It's difficult to work out which are sugar drop levels, and (for regular players whose interest is maintained by 3-starring) we need to be able to see the stars- the yellow one is insufficiently differentiated from the background and other graphics cover some levels' altogether.  Now there are so many levels (without differentiation between episodes, and esp since we lost the episode trophies when the old version disappeared) it's really tricky finding levels we still want to keep playing- you gotta help us out if you wanna keep us locked in!

I like the fast scrolling.. Dislike the C for the sugar drop levels very hard to see.Dislike that the board freezes regularly and takes me back to the last level I did when I am trying to complete lower levels for sugar drops.Other than that I don't really care what the map looks like.
