Are you a Candy Crush addict? If so, check out these 10 tips and tricks for getting even higher scores in the mobile game.
1. Understand the game and identify your goals
- Understand the game and identify your goals
Candy Crush is a puzzle game where you clear the level by matching 3 or more candies of the same color in a row or column. The player has a certain number of moves to make this happen, and will lose if they do not meet their goals before running out of moves. In order to win, players must understand how these rules work in conjunction with other factors that affect gameplay: difficulty level, reward for clearing levels and number of lives left.
2. Be strategic and play smart
- Be strategic and play smart
Look for opportunities to increase your points by making special candy combos. For example, if you have the striped candy in front of you and it’s a vertical line (i.e., no gaps), that means that when you press the space bar, your candy will go all the way down to where the striped candies were placed on either side of them (without resetting). This is called “wrapping” or “wrapping around”. If this happens, make sure not to clear any other candies as they may also wrap around other cells on their way down to the bottom row!
3. Beware of combos, do not make combinations that you do not need
It’s crucial that you know when to make a combination and when not to. While comboing is important, it’s also important not to make a combination that you don’t need. For example, if there are three candies of the same color and only one candy left on the board, it won’t matter if you match them together in a row or column. In other words, do not match the three candies together if they’re meant to be part of another combination later down the line.
4. Use power-ups strategically
Power-ups are essential to high scores in Candy Crush. Here are some tips for using them strategically:
- Use a power-up when you need it. A good time to use a power-up is when you’ve just made a move and there’s more than one candy on the board that could be matched, but only if you’re confident that your move will cause some of those candies to disappear. This means that sometimes it’s better NOT to use a power-up!
- Use them on special candies or blockers (items that prevent you from moving forward) when possible so they can disappear from the board and give way for new candies.(See tip #1). You’ll get bonus points if you can remove all blocks instantly with special candies or bombs before they reach their destination—and don’t forget they actually do damage as well!
5. You can use Facebook to get more lives
There are many ways to get more lives in Candy Crush Saga. You can get free lives by inviting friends to play the game, sharing it on Facebook and watching ads. Also, you can earn more lives by completing surveys or watching videos.
6. There are boosters to help you in the game
In order to get a higher score in the game, you can use boosters. These boosts will help you clear certain levels or stages in the game. There are various types of boosters that can be used in Candy Crush Saga, such as:
- Speed Boosters – Speed up your candies and make them move faster across the board. This is especially useful when you are playing a level that requires many moves to complete it.
- Extra Moves Boosters – Use these boosters when you are stuck on a level and need an extra set of moves without paying any coins or spending any lives.
- Score Multiplier Boosters – Increase your score multiplier by using these boosts that allow two extra moves at once instead of one so as to increase your chances of completing a level quickly with high points scored per move made (though this may not always work).
7. Keep an eye out for special candies
Special candies are the most powerful tools in your arsenal. They can clear a row or column of all but one type of candy, which is a huge help when trying to clear out pesky blockers. Special candies are also the only way to create special candies on the board, so mastering them will be key if you want to achieve high scores and enjoy playing this game more!
There are two ways to get special candies: by matching 5 of the same color in a row, or by matching 4+ jewels with any other types of candies. If you’re having trouble getting those special candy combinations down pat, I suggest just focusing on making matches that give you normal ones until they start popping up automatically (especially when trying to make combinations like clearing 3 rows with one move). Once they have started appearing regularly, it’s time to start practicing how they work so that your skills are sharpened when it comes time for those tough levels!
8. Check the moves you have left before you make your move
You can use the number of moves you have left to help decide what to do next. If you have a lot of moves left, then you can take more risks and attempt more challenging goals. If the board is almost full and your move count is low, then it’s time to play conservatively and focus on clearing at least one piece from every row or column before using up your remaining moves.
9. Look for opportunities to increase your points by making special candy combinations
- Look for opportunities to increase your points by making special candy combinations.
Special candy combinations are the key to high scores. If you can create a special candy combination, it will clear several or all of the candies in a row or column, thus increasing your score considerably.
10. You can buy extra moves and buy boosters, but this is optional, you don’t have to spend money on this game at all if you don’t want it.
There are a few things that you can buy, but it is not necessary to spend money on this game. If you want to buy extra moves and boosters, you can do so by going into the store in game and making your purchase.
