Being someone who is a big fan of CCS and who is married to someone who is an even bigger fan, I love this article.

I’m on level 202 on Candy Crush Saga currently. I have spent a lot of time getting there. I am hooked. And I don’t like to be hooked on anything. So, I spent some time thinking about why I like CCS and I realized that CCS is a great example of an excellent training program. Try to follow me here…
Candy Crush Saga starts out simple: match the candies and they disappear and you win. Then, obstacles are introduced and you learn to overcome those obstacles. Next comes harder obstacles (I hate those chocolate-making thingies), but you learn to overcome those. In other words, Candy Crush Saga teaches us the skills we need along the way to be successful at the next level of obstacles.
AHA! That is why I am hooked! I get positive outcomes from the game the more I play! And the game literally coaches me along and makes me successful. Candy Crush Saga is the ultimate Pavlov’s dog experiment.
