Addicted to Candy Crush?

(ABC) -- The online gaming sensation Candy Crush has attracted millions of fans.

But in a recent ABC News report, some people are raising concerns, saying some people are too hooked on the game.

The game is pretty simple to play. You swipe the candy in any direction to match and crush three or more of the same pieces.

Candy Crush is played by 45 million people each month. It's free to download and play.

You're given five lives per game, but you can pay to purchase additional ones.

Some experts say people are draining their wallets to buy lives.

But the game's creators say 70 % of their users finish the game without spending a dime.
