Whether you're just starting out or you're already addicted, there are some tricks everyone needs to know to progress in Candy Crush Saga.
#1. Make sure your phone is well charged before you play. "Candy Crush Saga" is a giant battery suck, but it can be played even when you have no cell service.
#2. When you start playing, you're given three free lollipop candies. DO NOT WASTE THEM. They are the only free items you'll ever be given throughout the game.
#3. Candy Crush Saga seems really corny and really easy ... until level 30. Stick with it until then, because the game gets really hard, really fast after that.
#4. You only get a certain number of moves to complete most levels in Candy Crush Saga. Always act like you have one less than it says because if you beat a board on the last turn, it doesn't always register.
#5. If you take too long to make a move, Candy Crush Saga will suggest a move for you by lighting up specific candies that can be matched together. It's usually the wrong move. Look around before you cave and take the game's proposed solution.
#6. The goal of the game is to match three or more of the same types of candy together to clear them. If you match five in an L shape, you create a bomb. If you match four in a row, you get a striped candy. If you match a bomb and a stripe candy together, a much larger board-clearing explosion occurs (see below).
