What’s New

Version 1.42


Candies n Curses now has dedicated Leaderboards!

Fight your way through hordes of ghosts and gobble those sugary sweets as quickly as you can because the Leaderboards for speed runners has arrived!

There are 7 leaderboards in total: 6 for each individual stage, and a 7th for speed running all 6 rooms in one run. To be #1 you need to be the fastest in the world. Let's see who can beat Candies 'n Curses the quickest!


In the Settings menu, you can now toggle the Clock Button to display or hide the in-game timer.

Toggling to display the in-game timer is not required to record your time to the Leaderboards, but it's a useful tool to check how fast you're moving.

Really entertaining and challenging but.....

This enticing and challenging game has had me playing it over hours and hours. The story has a quirky and define shape throughout the game. I enjoy the animation and general aesthetic that emanates from the art style and gameplay. The games levels of difficulty inspire me to work harder to get more upgrades and get better weaponry. The extra quests and interaction between characters add to the depth. But one thing kind of bums me out was the expectation that there will be more modes and levels to fuel my love for this but it ended so prematurely and how it was kind of short sparked a kind of sadness that I wanted to try to resolve because this game seems simple but I enjoyed it and I would love there to be more for me and others. I highly recommend this game among a lot of games on my phone.

Reeeeallly gooodd :)

Love this game, my friends saw me playing it on the bus, and now they love this game, too. I'd say my mare gets issue with the game is bugs but most of them were fixed in this latest update. Although I do have a few suggestions (I don't know where to leave them so I guess i'll just leave them in this review)
-buff curses, I often have no reason to pick any of them up, simply because there'll be candies that are literally just better in every way
(especially the undead curse, because if you have enough hearts, it puts you in a WORSE position)
-add a way to track NPC quests
-add some way so you can find out which enemies are which! I often find myself with a quest that requires me to kill a number of some type of enemy, yet I never have an idea which enemy it is.

Really fun way to pass some time!!

Alright so I’ve admittedly been waiting for this cute pixel game to drop and was super excited when it finally did!

First of all, the music is super fitting with the theme of the game. It was one of the few mobile games that I didn’t feel the need to immediately mute.

The way the pixels are done are superb. Honestly I love the outline around the ghosts and creatures that make it look sticker like, I just really enjoy that? Plus the storyline scenes remind me of old school stuff and I really enjoyed that feel of nostalgia while playing.

The controls are fairly simple, I struggled at first but only because of my own inability to comprehend, it’s pretty straight forward and easy to handle once you get the hang of it but don’t let my words deter you. The games bosses and such can be a bit challenging, leaving you to have to level up some more and keep coming back. Took me a few tries to get the first boss which is awesome that I can’t just easily grind through levels.

All in all, it’s a simple app with beautiful detail and a whole lot of charm!!! I’m glad I waited for this!! Thank you for the new time eater!!
