Candy Crush Level 1 Video
Level 1 is a Target Score level, one of five level types in Candy Crush Saga. Your objective is to score 800 points using 10 moves. In order to complete a Target Score level, you will need to reach a minimum target score in a limited number of moves. Target score levels appear in the first episode, Candy Town, and continue to the eleventh episode, Gingerbread Glade. When playing this type of level, you may be faced with other blockers such as, bombs, jelly, and meringue.
How To Beat Target Score Levels:
- Stay focused. Only make moves that help increase your score. Typically in these types of levels, the move limit is low. If there are blockers or other obstacles standing in your way, make sure that you ignore them and are continuously scanning the board for potential combinations or large matches. Do not waste moves on clearing the boosters or obstacles unless necessary.
- Look to create special candy combinations. Special candy combinations will help you to use your moves efficiently since they have a higher point value attached to them. When possible, make combinations that include 4+ candies. Also, look to combine two special candies together.
- Take your time. Since these levels do not have a time limit, make sure that each move you make is the best move. Remember, you are trying to reach a target score, not beat the clock or clear blockers. Continue to look around the board to be sure that each move you make, impacts the score.
