WARNING: Before you download Candy Crush and start playing you need to know that you will get extremely addicted to this game. You will play it non-stop… in bed, in the bathroom, on the bus…everywhere! Ok, if you are still reading that means you know you will be addicted and want to learn more about how to play and win Candy Crush Saga. The way it works is simple. Get 3 or more of the same colored candies in a row to make actions and get points. But along the way, it gets much more complicated then that. The game makes you complete certain tasks to win like destroying the jellies, getting the fruit to the bottom etc. Once you get more advanced you will learn that in order to win, you will need to make combinations of candies that make special candies.
Know where you’re at
If you hit ‘Quit’ on a level, it will tell you how many jelly you have left to get before you complete the level. It won’t force you to quit – it will give you the option to play on, and continue the game, so you can check your progress at any time.
Moving ingredients across columns
There are five set ups where you can swap ingredients out of a column:
Plan your ingredients
There is no randomness as to when an ingredient appears on a level. Learn what triggers the ingredient to drop (usually the first swap after the last ingredient was cleared or reaching a particular amount of moves) and plan accordingly so that they go into the vertical column that’s easiest to clear.
Make effective striped candies
When you find a four-candy match, you’re going to get a striped candy. The candy will be striped in the same direction as the candy you moved to make the match.
For most levels, crushing candies at the bottom of the grid is the best strategy. There are exceptions to this as you progress through the game. But, I bring this up for many of our newbies reading this!
