Matching Three Candies Is Great, But Four Or More Is Awesome
Let's face it, matching three similarly colored pieces of candy is child's play. If you really want to boost your score, match four or five. Matching four generates a special candy that, when combined with two other pieces of the same color, eliminates a whole row. Five, on the other hand, produces a special candy that, when matched, destroys all similarly-colored pieces on the entire board.
Tip: Combine special candies for screen-clearing effects.
Keep A Close Eye On Number Of Turns
You only have a specific number of turns to complete a stage, which the game displays at the bottom of the screen. Definitely keep tabs on it at all times. In fact, you should consider that number with each turn.
Don't Waste Turns
It's so easy to match candies thinking you're doing a great job, when it's the exact opposite. If the remaining piece of jelly (more on that in a bit) is on the lower left corner of a gigantic puzzle, don't waste turns by matching candies on the top right.
Tip: You must reach a certain number of points to beat a puzzle.
Jelly Doesn't Move
This is an easy mistake. During the jelly-themed levels, the actual jelly blocks cannot be moved. Instead, you're able to maneuver the different pieces of candy. Always think about the best possible ways to remove jelly by strategically putting different candies in place.
Losing Comes With Great Consequence
When you first begin to play Candy Crush Saga, the game only supplies you with a certain number of turns; think of these as lives. Once those run out, you have three options: put the game down and wait for more lives to appear, ask Facebook friends for free lives or purchase more for $0.99.
