Candy Crush can be an irritating game at times as some levels are definitely much more difficult than others. There are some tips, however, that you can use to help with many of the levels that should help you to do better.
You should not let any level get the better of you. You will learn more and more about the level the more that you play it and begin to understand the tactics required to solve it. You will find that sometimes it is just impossible to solve that particular level. Sometimes you just do not get the candies that you need and so you will have to be patient, but play carefully so that when you get a chance to do well and pass the level, that you take advantage of it.
Although it is not necessary to buy special boosters, they can help you. It is sometimes possible to get them for free such as when you spin the wheel each day, get rewarded for playing other King branded games when offers appear and when friends send them to you. It is wise to save these up until you get to a level which is taking you a significantly long time to resolve. Unfortunately, you may waste it by using it on a level that is impossible to solve which can be annoying, but with the lollipop hammers and switches you can select these mid game and so they may be very useful. If you have just a few moves left and are close to solving it, then it is worth considering whether these will help.
Making candy combinations is probably the best way to solve a level. This means getting a striped candy, wrapped candy or colour bomb. If you can combine them together you can get a much more powerful reaction. A striped candy will clear a row and a wrapped one will clear an area of 9 candies, but combining them together you will clear three rows and three columns which is significantly more candy. These can be great for clearing trapped candies, jelly, chocolate, cakes and anything else that is blocking you. They are also good at providing a path for ingredients to drop through giving them a better chance of reaching the bottom. Combinations with the colour bomb are also very good. Two colour bombs will clear the board of candies and replace them with new but will not clear blockages such as cakes; therefore it may not always be useful. Combining a colour bomb with a striped candy will change every candy of that colour to a striped one and can clear significant areas of the board. The colour bomb and wrapped candy will remove all candies of that colour and then another set of them as well. These can be particularly useful if you are aiming to collect a certain colour candy or need to make combinations, which will be easier if one colour is removed.
Another way to do better at specific levels is to find articles and videos which have specific information on how to solve it. It is amazing how much easier it is to solve a level when you have watched a walk through video of someone solving it even if you learn nothing new from it with regards to tactics. It is almost as if knowing it is possible to solve it makes you more confident and you can do it more easily.
Other than that, take it slowly, consider the necessary tactics and keep checking all areas of the board rather than concentrating on just one. Most importantly enjoy yourself – it is a game after all!
