Candy Crush Boosters & Charms Tips
Boosters cost various amounts in the game, but once you use the booster, it’s gone. They are one-time use items. Once you select and purchase your booster, some will activate before you enter the level, while others can be activated during gameplay while selecting the booster you wish to use in the top left screen.
If you normally play on mobile, connect to your Facebook account then try playing on facebook. The game will reward you with free boosters (like Lollipop hammers), also, when prompted to play another game to earn free lives refills, you can also earn FREE boosters.
Don’t forget the BOOSTER WHEEL which lets users spin it to earn prizes!
3+ Moves Booster:
Whenever you get stuck on a level you can have you facebook friends send you an extra three moves to help you out.
A Facebook friend can send you extra lives if you run out. But remember: on mobile devices, you can refill your lives for free!
Remember, certain boosters, like extra moves, can be gifted from your Facebook friends!
Jelly Fish Booster: This will have jelly fish appear randomly in the levels that are in the jelly game mode. These jelly fish will eat away the jelly tiles behind the candies. A jelly fish booster can be combined with other special candies, like striped and wrapped candies and color bombs.
Coconut Wheel: The coconut wheel is a booster that creates 3 striped candies. It activates before you enter the level, and can appear several times within the same level. If you combine the coconut wheel with other special candies, a large amount of combos and power ups will occur.
Color Bomb: When you use a color bomb with a colored candy all the candies of that color will become striped candies. When you use the striped candies the rows will blast off horizontally or vertically.
Wrapped and Striped Booster: You will receive on striped candy and one wrapped candy before you begin the level.
Lollipop Hammer: The lollipop hammer will crush any candy you want on the board. You can get some lollipop hammers for free in the beginning of the game, but I would save them later for a more difficult level like level 33.
Shuffle Candy: Only available after you complete level 30. You should use this booster as a last resort in a level when you don’t have any moves left. This will randomly mix up all the tiles in the screen to give you potential new matches, although there is no guarantee if the tile positioning will be better or worse after you use this booster.
5 + Moves: This booster automatically will give you 5 more moves in the game to help you complete the level.
Bomb Cooler: This booster is only available after Level 98. This should be used when you are near the end of reaching a level but the bomb is about to blow. When you use this booster it will add an extra 5 seconds to any of the active bombs on the board.
Mystery Candy: Available after Level 130. Use this power up to add a “mystery” candy randomly to the board that will have a question mark as its icon. When you match these up you will be given a useful tool for that level.
Lucky Candy: Lucky Candy will help you to beat candy order levels. These candies will appear on the board in a metallic colored circle with a check mark in the middle. When you combine the lucky candy with another candy it will turn into the candy that you need to meet your orders. For example, if you are trying to collect candy bombs and you combine the lucky candy with another candy on the board, you will have one less candy bomb to make.
