Candy Story is a match-three game which has a story mode. There are five types of levels: Target Score Level, Jelly Level, Ingredient Drop Level, Time Level, and Objective Level. Levels of each episode can have multiple required goals. Each level has a game board filled with differently colored candies, obstacles, and props. The basic move is horizontally or vertically swapping the positions of two adjacent candies, to create sets of three (or more) candies of the same color.
