The board will be different and you won’t lose any lives. Click on the link above for instructions on how to reset your board. More >>

3. Always look for special candies.

Special candy moves are always better than the basic 3 candy match. There are three types of special candies in Candy Crush Saga: striped candy, wrapped candy, and color bomb. Learn how to make all the Candy Crush special candies.

4. Special Candy Combos are the best moves to make.

You can combine any two special candies to make a special candy combo. Each special candy combo has a different effect, and they are all very helpful in helping you beat each level of Candy Crush. Here are all theCandy Crush Special Candy Combos.

5. Remove blockers first.

Clear the squares with the blockers first. By matching candies in and near the blocked squares you will be able to complete the level within the set number of moves. Be wary of any blocked squares on odd corners of the board, as they will be more difficult to remove, so try to get rid of them first. For more on  in-game obstacles and blockers, check out this site.

6. Don’t always use suggested moves

If you get stuck and don’t make a move for a certain amount of time, the game will provide a hint for you in the form of candies flashing. Only use this move if you can’t spot any else.

7. Take a look of the entire board and plan out your first moves before randomly matching.

Remember: What are the objectives? Is this a timed level, how many moves do you have, are your ingredients already on the board?

  • Samantha Cara

    I just got started playing this game and these tips were so helpful. Thanks so much!

  • Ted Lee

    HEY!!!! BIG TIP!!! before starting a level you can restart if you dont like the board! i havent tried for timed levels yet but so far they are working!!!!

    • Fran Murphy

      Just exactly what do u do to get another board without loosong a turn?

      • Ted Lee

        Just hit back on your phone before you mark any moves. If you can’t do that, press the bottom left menu button and endthe level. KEEP IN MIND YOU CANNOT HAVE MADE ANY MOVES

    • Jessie G

      Love this tip. Nope doesn’t work for times levels.

    • Heather Martin-Pena

      The only problem with that is if you exit the game before you finished you’ll lose a life

      • Ted Lee

        …… thats why the tip is for “BEFORE starting a level”. just so you know.

  • Susan

    u reatart a game? Exasperated

  • Fran Murphy

    Also, pet rescue is impossible to attain 29 level. I know buying is their objective,
    ballons take up most of ur moves, the blocks u get are staggered, thus cannot be moved.

    • Maureen

      Let’s just say…..I need to get a life…or live the one I own!

  • Sandi Wimmer

    245 is a joke. Stuck all week. Tried at least 100 times between pc and phone. Mystery candys more often deterrents rather than useful candy. If a useful piece is discovered, it’s usually wrapped…really??? Are the developers laughing at the rantings of people posting their frustrations? Statagizing is useless since stripes and wraps are usually blown away. Color bombs are useless. This might be the level that leads to the end of the saga for me. This used to be a fun, relaxing distraction from an otherwise hectic, stressful day. I don’t need more aggravation.

  • Patrick Murtha

    level 153.fix the whole nearly impossible thing.color bomb plus color bomb?done it before but its hard

  • Maureen

    Never going to pass level 140…SOS

    • Rashi Venkatesh Yadav

      if i dn’t mind send it ur ID and password I can play that level……….

  • Maureen

    If anyone has any tips on fulfilling orders….I’m begging you to help…I’m so frustrated I don’t even bother trying because I know I can’t do it after about a month of failed attempts !

  • Tomed Per

    I’m struggling really bad at level 70, please help me!

    • Candy Crush Cheats

      Hi Tomed, have you checked out our level 70 guide?

  • Jessie G

    I have been playing for months not connected to Facebook (I hate playing connected to Facebook). Today I accidentally clicked ‘connect to facebook’ and it went 100 levels back, where I was the last time I was connected! Ahh so annoying. Please tell me there’s a way to disconnect from FB and get back to my level….

    • Candy Crush Cheats

      Ouch, I’m not sure if you can. Are you still stuck at old levels?

      • Jessie G

        I am. 😛 But I just started playing connected to FB anyways. It just sucks to have went back literally 100 levels. Such a bummer.

      • Crystal

        Same problem here!!!! I just clicked connect to Facebook and it got me back to level 1 ( I was on lvl 301) what can I do to get back to me level … .?..

      • nicole

  • shuja

    m on 166 help me

  • judy

    Who is odus bird and why play it after doing 50 levels. Just wondering

    • Bucinka

      Odus is a retarded bird who should have been weeded out of the owl gene pool long ago. Apparently he forgot he can fly, so if you knock the crescent moon he sits on out of balance by making too many matches of a particular color, he falls off instead of using the wings God gave him. 😛 Especially annoying when you’re on an color orders level and his crescent has one or two of the colors you’re trying to collect. In that case, reset the board.

    • JudiMorrisonDunham

      When you first increase your date in settings, then opene candy crush to see your 5 lives, you NEED to go back and change your date/time settings back to “automatic” before playing the game. Happened to me several times. The only way I could fix it was to delete my candy crush and reload it. NO, before you ask, YOU DO NOT LOSE YOUR LEVELS! Have done it several times.

  • Paul Seager

    Am on level 365 and suddenly the game has started telling me that my facebook login has failed and am therefore unable to have my free spin for daily booster – which makes life hard because I dont buy boosters and dont intend to start. I do not, and have never facebooked. I do not intend to go on facebook, I would rather play on without my freeboosters!

    Can anyone give me an idea how to get rid of this message and go back to playing the way I want.

  • luc

    When I play this on my desktop computer, I am at level 333 (I think). But when I play on my cell phone, I am stuck behind a roadblock at around 330 (it’s the caution sign with paint buckets). I’ve deleted the app from my phone and re-installed, signed in/out of FB, reloaded the app, etc, and I can’t get my cell phone to match up with my desktop. Any suggestions?
