The award-winning and one of the most downloaded match-3 puzzle games Candy Crush Saga is offering unlimited lives for players of all levels for 5 days from April 1 to April 5, 2020. So, you might wonder why they feel generous with lives today? If you guessed it right, that’s because game developer and publisher King is in part of World Health Organization’s #PlayApartTogether – a movement that encourages gaming on an upscaled experience that involves major game titles from mobile to PC and all consoles.
The following Candy Crush games will receive unlimited lives for the week: Candy Crush Saga, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Candy Crush Jelly Saga, Candy Crush Friends Saga, Farm Heroes Saga, Bubble Witch 3 Saga, and Pet Rescue Saga. This is a good opportunity for every player to settle against the toughest levels multiple times without breaking their momentum.
Despite the controversial decision of WHO declaring gaming as a mental disorder, it would seem that the organization had a change of heart and found the joy of video games. After the global pandemic of the coronavirus COVID-19, WHO encourages people in quarantine to pick up and controller or phone and play games to exercise their social skills as well as mental health.
As part of the movement, several other publishers have released games for free including Tomb Raider, Rayman Legends, The Division, Dead Space, and many more.
