The Bejeweled series is arguable the original match game. That makes it a bit ironic that it’s on a list of Candy Crush Saga alternatives. Even so, EA has released three Bejeweled games. They are Bejeweled Classic, Bejeweled Blitz, and the newer Bejeweled Stars. They are all variants of the same match three style of similar games with little tweaks to the game play to provide something a little different.

Threes! best games like candy crush sagaThrees!

[Price: Free / $2.99]
Threes! is not as close to the Candy Crush Saga experience as other games on this list. However, you will still be engaging with a game board where you have to make matches. The idea of this game is to match two corresponding numbers to create bigger numbers. Thus, you match a three with another three to make a six, and then match that with another six. This continues until you run out of moves to make. The free version is okay. However, the paid version has no in-app purchases. That is a great option for people looking for something that isn’t freemium.

triple town best Android games like Candy Crush SagaTriple Town

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Triple Town is another lesser known game. However, it does really well as an alternative to Candy Crush Saga. In this game, you’ll be tasked with growing a city full of bears. As you probably guessed, you can build your town up by matching three or more game pieces to make new objects. What makes this game very interesting is the ability to purchase “unlimited turns”. It’s a bit costly, but worth it if you really love the game and don’t want to run out of energy again.

wonderlines best Android games like Candy Crush SagaWonderlines

[Price: $2.99]
Wonderlines is an older match three game. Unlike its predecessors on this list, this game is a pay-once game. That means there are no in-app purchases to weigh you down. The story goes that you’re somewhere in Africa hunting down treasure. You must solve puzzles to get various treasures. Despite being about the same mechanically, the game feels a bit less energetic because it’s not trying to sell you boosters or anything absurd like that. It was last updated in 2015, so it may be abandoned now. Make sure to try it inside of the refund time in case you need to return it.
