PopCap: Candy Crush is not a Bejeweled Clone

Wow, I'm surprised popcap is the one saying this.
But whatever they say, I still consider candy crush saga a clone of bejeweled. And screw King for doing what they're doing with the names, "candy" and "saga."

Other than being both puzzle game Candy Crush is nothing like Bejeweled.

Maybe I have been playing something else because other than being candy and having stages they seem to be the exact same thing. The difference is Bejeweled is pretty basic with being a high score driven game while Candy Crush is very luck driven and requires you to wait a while to complete a level with different stages and goals.

Bejeweled= classic high score game
candy Crush= luck and time unless you use microtransactions.

I applaud King because that was a very good business move.
