Candy Box 2 continues the ASCII themed adventure with a more deep role playing experience than the original. Collect your candies, beat quests, upgrade weapons, encounter NPCs, master spells, battle bosses and unlock countless secrets in this sequel.


The core game elements are still there in Candy Box 2 with players starting with minimal elements and slowly unlocking new options by spending candies. This time around though the game takes place across more screens with players able to visit individual buildings in their starting village and even explore the game world for questing.

The candy merchant returns this time with his own store near the centre of the game village. Selling all sorts of wares for the passive candies you generate you’ll be able to pick up the trusty lollipops (as well as find them randomly around the game world). Your favourite candy merchant has also expanded into helpful items such as gloves, rings and boots.


Just across the street from the candy merchant is the new forge where you’ll purchase new swords for your adventures. Additionally a number of houses along the road hide quests and secrets.

With two dozen unique items to unlock, new weapons, extra enemies and countless more improvements the experience offered by Candy Box 2 is reminiscent of the original but with a whole new level of depth and variety to make it even more addictive.


  • An enhanced sequel to the hit Candy Box game.
  • All new items, enemies, locations and more.
  • More ASCII art to bring the game world to life.
  • Strong community and wiki to help if you get stuck.
  • Made for browser with ports to iOS and Android.
