The above interface shows the gameplay screen of the game. In the above screen, I have successfully matched three candies together, and hence you can see them disappearing from the screen, and you can also see the score that I’m being allotted for the same. You can see the other fine details of the game like your score, your target score, the remaining time counter towards the left side of the screen. At the bottom left of the screen, you can see the sound toggle which toggles the sounds of the game to on or off states. When you complete a game level (or lose it), you will be shown the game over screen along with your score!
