5. Stripped and Wrapped Candies
Horizontal striped candies blast off to the left/right, while vertical striped candies clear out anything above/below them. Swiping these striped candies in a horizontal/vertical direction also throws on a few striped pieces of candy. For those stages that task you with knocking out the jelly from hard-to-reach tiles, striped candies are your best bet.
- How Stripped works: The direction of the stripes is the way the candy will explode when you create a match. (So if a candy has vertical stripes, the candies up and down from it will explode)
- Stripe Combo: If you match two stripes together, no matter which direction the stripes are going, one row of candies will be wiped out horizontally, and one row will be wiped out vertically so that it looks like a cross.
- If you knock a sprinkle candy into a bomb candy (striped candy + Color Bomb) , it will turn other candies of that color into bombs for a greater effect. If you complete a match with a bomb candy, it will knock out at least 9 of the surrounding candies. They’re great for clearing out specific, pesky areas.
- The striped candy + wrapped candy combo is a very powerful combo in the game. When you have a wrapped candy or can make one, consider saving your striped candy to make a special combo.
- Make Wrapped Candy: You can form a wrapped candy with a “plus”, “t-shape” or “corner-shape” which combines at least 3 vertical candies with at least 3 horizontal candies.
- Wrapped Candy Match: When you create a match with a wrapped candy, it creates a small explosion that knocks out the nine candy box which surrounds it.
- Tip: Try Stripped + Wrapper Combo, If no combo exists then try Wrapped Match or Stripped Match!
6. Flashing Candies – Make use of these
Let us say you are in a tough stage and game knows this. You are stuck staring on your screen for few minutes that means you need help. Candy Crush game will help you by flashing potential matching candies.
You should pay attention to this and make use of it. Don’t get too comfortable with these freebie moves. These candy matches are randomly generated, so you may not always be getting these flashing tips.
7. Color Bomb (Sprinkle Candy) Combo – BOOM !
You should be targeting as many color bomb combo (one two or three) as these will get you amazing amount of points, as these combinations take everything off your puzzle set.
- Creating a color bomb requires that you match five candies in a row.
- Regular candy you swap with the color bomb causes it to explode and destroy all of that color candy on the screen – BUT you must first try to create a color bomb combo, if this doesn’t works out then only try this trick.
- Striped Candy + Color Bomb special candy combo can often be a “game winning” move. It is worth some sacrifice of turns to try and make it happen.
8. Save Lollipop Candies and Other freebies
When you first login and start playing the game you will be given three lollipop candies for free. More importantly whatever free items you get in the game you should consider preserving them for later use. There are more than 400 levels in the game and these freebies will come handy at a later stage – otherwise you will end up buying these at later stage.
9. Match three, Four and Five Candies – Boom!
Though by matching three candies of same type you will be still able to clear them, however matching more than three candies – like four or five can have an added benefit. If you match five candies in a L shape, you can create a bomb. If you match four in a row you will get striped candy.
10. Chocolate Candy – Cancer Candy
As you move ahead in the game, new features will come up. Chocolate candy will appear at level 51 and it will keep spreading if you don’t get rid of this candy. So just make sure you get rid of this cancer chocolate candy – just eat it up! Otherwise in no time it will multiply and fill the board.
