Candy Crush Saga is a game developed by that is based on match-3 challenges. This Candy Crush Saga strategy guide and walkthrough will provide you with a quick start guide, tips and tricks, hints and cheats to help you get started with your  Candy Crush Saga. game

After starting to play, the candy man takes you through a quick tour that  will walk you through a short tutorial on how different actions work in Candy Crush Saga. Go back an d play the very first levels if you want to refresh your memory in a fun way. :)

In Candy Crush Saga, you move across a saga map to different episodes with new levels. You need to clear a level, in order to progress to the next level.
In the Beginning there are three basic types of levels: jelly levels, ingredient levels and timed levels. When you play Candy Crush Saga to high levels, new kind of obstacles will be added to make more challenging levels.
The basis of the game and each of the types of levels is as simple as it gets: move a candy in order to make a row or a column of at least 3 same-coloured candies. If you make a line or row of more than 3 candies, you will get a special candy.
Aside from the timed levels, you can take as long as you want to think about your next move. The only limit the game gives you, is the amount of moves you use to reach the level’s target. Don’t rush through the levels, having an extra look at the board you are playing can save you many lives and grey hair.

When you have either reached the level’s target, or the time limit is over, Candy Crush will happen. Any special candies left on the board will be activated and make extra combinations to get your score count up even higher.

After clearing you  first jelly Level, which is level 6, you get 3 free lollipop hammers. The Lollipop Candy hammers in Candy Crush Saga are Boosters that you can purchase with Facebook Credits after you have used the 3 free Lollipops that you first get, you buy the Lollipops Hammer Smashes 3 each time and that costs you 19 FB Credits. You find the Lollipop Hammer Booster at your Upper right hand whenever you are playing a level.

Candy Crush Saga TIPS: how to clear Jelly levels

In Jelly levels, the goal is to remove all the jellies from the board. A jelly is removed by making a match over the jelly’s square. Almost fully transparent squares need one match to remove the jelly, while only slightly transparent squares need two matches: one match to make it almost fully transparent and one more match to remove the jelly altogether.

Candy Crush Saga

While you’ll spend most of the matches clearing the normal field, there are two things to always watch for: jelly squares at the top of the field, and jelly squares in odd corners of the field. As these are really hard places to match 3 in a row, you have to match whenever you get the chance, because you won’t know  if there will be any more at that level.




Candy Crush SagaThere are also stone squares: the squares don’t actually have any candies to use, but they need to be opened up. When a match is made on one of the squares next to the stone square, it will break open and can be used.




Candy Crush SagaIngredient levels

In ingredient levels, the aim is to move ingredients from the top of the board to the bottom, by removing candies from underneath them.
There is not much of a special strategy to these levels, other than keeping your focus on how to bring down the ingredients, rather than just making matches.



Candy Crush SagaTimed levels

Timed levels are the most straight-forward of all the types of levels: you need to reach a certain score within the time limit. Make quick decisions, go for combo’s and use as many special candies as possible to rack up that score!
When a candy appears that has “+5” written on it(upper right in the Pic), use that candy in a match to get an additional 5 seconds before the timer runs out. Even if you haven’t quite reached the score when the timer runs out, fear not: Candy Crush also appears in timed levels and will give your score an extra boost.

Special candies

Candy Crush SagaIf you make a match of more than 3 candies, the candies will transform into a special candy, with special powers. There are three primary special candies, but by combining special candies you get even bigger effects.
By matching 4 candies of the same color in one row or column, a Striped candy appears that, when matched, clears the entire row or column it is in. When combined with another 4-match special candy, both the row and the column it is in will be cleared.

Candy Crush SagaBy matching candies in a long L-shape or in a T-shape, you get a Wrapped candy. When it is matched by colour, it will explode once, fall down, and explode another time, clearing loads of candies off the board.

You an match a striped candy and a wrapped candy to get a HUGE striped candy that clear out 3 columns and 3 rows.




Candy Crush Saga

If you are able to match 5 candies, you get a really special candy. This can be switched with any other single candy on the board; it doesn’t need to match to activate. When activated, all the same-colored candies as the candy it was switched with, will be removed from the board. If you combine this special candy with a 4-match special candy, all the candies of that color will change into that special candy, and clear out all the rows and columns that color is in.
Generic tips for Candy Crash Saga
  • Take your time to think of what move to make next. Unless you’re playing a timed level, there’s no time limit.
  • Learn to recognize when you can make a special candy. They’re very powerful items that can make the difference between finishing or failing the level. Try to combine the special candies!
  • Only use the ‘flashing’ suggestion the game gives you if you don’t see any other matches you can make. While the suggestions helps you a little, they are usually not the highest-scoring matches you can make at any point.
  • If you are unable to reach the level’s goal, you will lose a life. Your lives will refill up to a maximum of 5. Refilling one life takes 30 minutes.
  • As good a player as you are, there is always that random factor that often make it very hard to pass a level. Don’t give up! Given enough attempts, you will progress. YOU CAN DO THIS!

  1. Why are friends’ lives not added to the total at the beginning of the game? This has to be a very simple thing for the game developers to do or else they should remove the option to request lives. ‘They just vanish’ is not an acceptable response.

    After all, if you’re failing to honour the free request you set up, why would players trust you to deliver on items they’ve actually paid for?

    • I agree. Some of the advice I have been reading does not work. For example, someone was told to close the “accept lives” button and then to go back and get them from an icon in the upper left hand corner when you ran out. There is not icon in the upper left hand corner. I tried the advice and instead of starting with 5 lives it took one away and I only had 4??????????? I too feel a bit unsafe in purchasing with real money if the game is flawed.

  2. I’m trying 123 – all the videos including yours are missing the yellow color except the one with all the boosts. Wanted to see it solved, but its easier with less colors. I’m stymied. Any suggestions?

    • It is different different times you load the level I think. Or could they have changed it? If you are playing on a mobile device, try to play at facebook for a better board.

  3. I have been given many extra lives from friends, yet I have never been allowed to play more than 5 lives in any 30 minute time slot. Why don’t I get the extra lives when I accept them?

  4. My friend have requested me to send her a ticket.I could accept her request.But,recently,it doesn’t work.She sent me the request but I cannot accept her request.Do yu know why?

  5. I’m suck on level 77. On the thread it shows to maneuver to make several striped candies. I’ve attempted this level 60 times and cannot master it. Please give me a hint or trick or secret or ticket. It’s so frustrating!!

  6. Yesterday, i have purchased a gift for myself from yeti shop. I got an email said that the transaction was successful. However, when i play it i don’t see any booster there. How long i have to wait to receive my booster gifts actually?

  7. Level 76, collect ingredients? They seem to go from one side of the board to the other so how do they get collected? Plz help:)

  8. i cannot leave level 76, how can I leave this level. I played it for several times, my cerise fal down but i can not see it at the bar.
    please help me……………..

  9. Hey all i wrote a blog about this GREAT game. i been stuck on lvl 65 for two weeks haha. some levels do take some time to beat but its the fact the every game is unique that keep people hooked. ever wonder why they made the game the way it is. how you cant get unlimited lives. that would help alot of us. i explain that and more in my blog post. check it out.

  10. Hi,

    I love this game and I’m on level 153. I installed Candy Crash saga on my new smart phone ZTE Blade III with Android 4.1.2 version, but it can not synhronise me with my FB account and with my level 153. I puts me on 1 level and cannot connect with FB. What should I do?


  11. Level 45 – how do I remove the large centre candie – twice I have cleared all but that one and can’t move on

  12. Walkthrough doesn’t help a lot in this game since each time the candies and their formation and position are different. I think a tip is more helpful! By the way, Level 65 is also a hard level. Sometimes, it’s even harder than level 33.

  13. Finally, I found a CandyCrush Hack that can generate 99 lives and 99 tickets at once. You can try it too! Go Here (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y)

  14. I have some lollipops and hands, boosters, I have no idea how to use them, or how! I lost 2 trying to hit a jelly with them, it did not work, help please!

  15. Please explained what the pink envelope w a heart inside mean. I usually click on the, and they turn into a green check mark.

    Why do I have to keep checking them?

    Please simplify “Ask for Lives” and “Unlock next Level.” Candy Crush knows exactly whom we’ve asked before so we shouldn’t have to continually go through names.

  16. How do I get back where it shows what Levels my friends are on when I look at map? Used to be there…disappeared.

  17. I am on level 159. What are those twirling things (fan like) and what do they do? Had them on 158 but had no trouble. Can’t seem to make it thru 159. Ending up with nothing on the page but fans and chocolates.

  18. I am on level 29 and I don’t have a envelope I have tried to restart and still nothing I am connected to facebook and friends try to send me lives but I am unable to get them. My friends tell me they can tell they was sent. What should I do

    • Delete the game from your device and then reinstall. I had to do this twice before my game fully synced with Facebook and it has been working well ever since.

  20. Every time I play a window open asking to send extra moves to my friends (they are stuck for a varying number of days) and I do so, however, I’ve been stuck at level 208 for about 2 weeks and have never received any extra moves. How do you get extra moves from friends?

  21. iv been playing candy and bubble for a while and just recently got facebook iv had 2 icons following 1 is my profile picture the other blank I know both are me, and I cant receive lives ect tried disconnecting reconnecting to facebook. now I cant connect to face book how can I fix this someone please please help me

  22. Not an accusation of any kind, more of an observation out of curiosity and out of wanting to improve my gameplay…as I have viewed the many walkthroughs available, I have noticed that the bombs seem to give a much longer time b/4 exploding vs. when I play on my ipad, the bombs seem to explode almost instantaneously. So, if I don’t immediately tend to the bomb, I am toast. Has anyone else noticed this?

  23. I played the bubble witch saga to get 5 lives and 5 candy hammers and when I was done the window appeared with a “thanks” button that I clicked. Only it never gave me my hammers or lives :(
