Hacking Pokemon into Candy Crush

(Also check out my other hacks)
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

fruit1.png fruit2.png fruit3.png fruit4.png fruit5.png fruit6.png fruit7.png fruit8.png

We want to replace these images with

fruit1.png fruit2.png fruit3.png fruit4.png fruit5.png fruit6.png fruit7.png fruit8.png
fruit1.png fruit2.png fruit3.png fruit4.png fruit5.png fruit6.png fruit7.png fruit8.png

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+
