To ward off boredom while at home in order to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19, gadget users can play games on their devices. Lately, a number of game developers are being generous by giving additional in-game items or “lives” to their players. One of them is King, maker of the popular game series Candy Crush Saga.
The players of this game can now be played continuously without the need to wait for the timer for 30 minutes when lost “soul” because it failed to complete the round in a Candy Crush Saga. Usually, players can only collect a maximum of up to five lives.
The opportunity “unlimited lives” that will last until Sunday (5/4/2020) can also be used to try the challenging rounds that exist in Candy Crush Saga.
In addition to Candy Crush Saga , King also provides unlimited “lives” in a number of other games he made, namely Candy Crush Soda Saga, Candy Crush Jelly Saga, Candy Crush Friends Saga, Farm Heroes Saga, Bubble Witch 3 Saga, and Pet Rescue Saga.
King is a member of #PlayApartTogether, a campaign organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) to encourage the world community to play games while staying at home.
In the campaign, WHO also wants to appeal to the importance of social distancing during the corona virus pandemic today. In running its campaign, WHO is also collaborating with a number of other well-known developers, including Ubisoft, Activision Blizzard, Riot Games and Zynga.
