All of these matching games are great and all, but crushing candy or pieces or fruit just doesn’t do the trick for me. Now, if instead of candies we had pokemon and nintendo characters… well I could play that shit all day. If you want to see it in action, scroll to the bottom.
So lets get started
First I found a Candy crush knockoff. This one was called Candy Splash (download the apk here). I chose this knockoff, instead of the official Candy Crush, because the files in this particular app were very easy to manipulate.
After you download the game, make a copy of it and rename it to modded.rar
Then open the file in winrar
click on the folder called assets and you will see a bunch of files. There are a few key files which I highlighted.
These are the original images
We want to replace these images with
After you replace the original images with the much improved images, close out the .rar file
The file is fully altered now. The last thing we need to do is “sign the .apk”. Signing is a necessary step before you can install this app on your phone.
You need a signing program called Auto-Sign. You can find the program here.
Extract Auto-sign.rar and then put your modded .rar file into that folder. Rename your modded .rar file to modded.apk
Next read the README file. It will tell you that you need a java SDK. If you dont have this, the README file will explain to you where to get it.
Run the sign application and you should see this
You press any key to continue… and if everything works you see this
A need file called your_app_signed.apk has been added to the folder.
You can copy this file onto your android device and install it (make sure you uninstall any copy of Candy Splash before hand or it might have an error).
Now you have a game worth playing
Check it out. Here I am running it on a bluestacks emulator, but I also run the same file on my Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
