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 the Candy 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.

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?
