Lets have a look at some common questions about Candy Crush Saga:

What Should I Do To Get Through A Level?

Generally, you go through levels after reaching certain goals. More specifically, you firstly need to come up with a score that will give you at least one star and then carry out the task that will be assigned to you when beginning each level.

How Do I Come Up With The Bigger Score?

Just match three or more candies of the same color; fitting them together makes them explode, and that is what creates your score. Try not to just make matches of three (besides, that’s not very demanding!), but aim at combining four or five so as to earn more points and, thusly, collect as many stars as possible.

Is There Only One Game Mode In Candy Crush Saga?

On the contrary! The game features five different game modes with distinct objective, providing a unique level of variety. These are:

  • Moves Level: Here, you are given a limited number of changes to hit your goal (that is to get at least one star), otherwise you will be required to go back to the start.
  • Jelly Level: During this game mode, you are given a limited number of moves in order to take out the jelly by matching the candy on top of it. Being unsuccessful in that will signify that you have failed the level.
  • Ingredients Level: Here, you are asked to take a number of ingredients that are set on the game board to the bottom row. On the side of the board, there is a kind of “recipe” that shows you the number of ingredients you must gather. But hurry up!
  • Time Level: In this game mode, you have a narrow time frame to achieve a minimum score. If you don’t manage to earn the needed points so as to get at least one star before time expires, you fail the level.
  • Candy Order Level: Your chore here is to gather a number of candies by eliminating the wanted ones before you run out of moves.

How Many Lives Does The Player Have?

You begin the game having five lives. Every time you don’t succeed to get through a level, one of them is lost. When you lose all of them, game is over unless you wait for 30 minutes for the life to be replaced. This potential may sound beneficial but not everyone is tolerant enough to wait half an hour to get another life. So, if you want immediate replenishment, you have to purchase a 5-life kit or ask your Facebook friends to send you some more.

Special Candies Will Astonish You!

As mentioned before, matching three candies can hardly be regarded as a strenuous endeavor. That’s why Candy Crush Saga offers you incentives to generate more intricate combinations which create Special Candies, delivering a beneficial impact on your game. For example, if you combine four candies in a row or a column, a Striped Candy is brought in, eradicating the entire row or column. Matching five candies in the shape of a T or an L generates a Wrapped Candy, which enables you to empty a 3×3 unit of candies. Similarly, putting five candies in a row delivers you a Color Bomb, which can be itself merged together with any candy of any color and eradicate every candy of this color! Finally, a gigantic super candy is created when you manage to combine a wrapped candy with a striped candy, eliminating several rows both up and across the board!

About Sugar Crush

Once you finish a level with moves or candies leftover, you get an extra bonus score as a reward for your exceptional performance!

About Charms

Charms are elements of the game that can generate a handy boost when you find yourself trapped in problematic circumstances. Unluckily, they are not for free but, once you shop for one, you can keep it for ever. In addition, they are constantly available, even though you need to switch them on and off, depending on the problem you want to overcome. They include mainly the Charm of Frozen Time, the Charm of Stripes and the Charm of Life. As concerns the latter, it raises your lives pack from five to eight (thus, the game will replenish up to eight lives a day). Yet, don’t assume that Charms are essential for completing the game; avid gamers have no difficulty in moving through the levels without having to resort to their help.

And What About Boosters?

Boosters give you a necessary lift when your progress through the game slows down. They are integrally linked to charges and that unfortunately means that, every time you use a Booster, a charge is wasted. Yet, Boosters remain cheaper than the majority of Charms. Many of them are set off on the screen just prior to starting a level whereas others can be triggered during gameplay by touching the appropriate button on the top left corner of the screen. They include the Color Bomb (which enables you begin a level with a free Color Bomb), the Jelly Fish (whose activation makes Jelly Fish turn up at random as you perform the Jelly levels), the Lollipop Hammer (enables you to eliminate candies) and the +5 More Moves (which provides you with an additional five moves).

What Does “Sweet, Tasty, Divine and Delicious” Is All About?

In essence, you see that every time a candy drops and is paired many times in a series, thus giving your score a boost.

OTHER ISSUES

First Of All, Is A Facebook Account Essential For Playing The Game?

Luckily, no! As you will see below, you can enjoy Candy Crush Saga without connecting to Facebook, although doing so allows you to receive valuable help by your friends –or helping them in return. (In fact, you can even play the game without an internet connection!)

Do Reinstalling The Game Or Logging Off The Facebook Account While Somebody Else Logs In Compromise My Progress?

Don’t worry. First of all, in case you play using a Facebook connection, your gaming is saved on the Facebook account, thus it is safe. On the other hand, playing without a Facebook connection guarantees only saving on the device, therefore, once the application is deleted or the phone is brought back to factory settings, your progress is lost. Regarding the second case, and provided you play while being connected to Facebook, your progress is saved on the account you use and is resumed once you log on again. This is feasible thanks to the fact that the game can support several log-ins with diverse accounts (this also explains that, once you log on with a different account, your progress from that point will be stored there). In case you choose to play without getting connected to Facebook, your progress is assimilated with that of the account which is logged in next.

What Does No 111858 Indicate When Intending To Connect To Facebook?

This is a common problem that is fixed by following these simple steps: Move to Settings, hit Developer Options, find Apps and deactivate the Don’t Keep Activities Option.

My Progress Is Not Exhibited On My Mobile; Also, It Seems That I Cannot Get Help Or Messages From My Friends. What Is The Matter?

Firstly, make sure that the synchronization with your Facebook account is proper. To do so, check out the small symbol on the map that appears on the lower right side of the screen; it must be green to work properly. If it’s red, then the synchronization is poor and it is advisable to search for a finer internet connection. In terms of getting your messages, sometimes it is essential to reconnect to Facebook by scrolling down the main menu and tapping on the Facebook Connect icon.

Is There A Chance Of My Updates Being Posted To My Facebook Wall Without My Approval?

No. In fact, apart from the Facebook Open Graph (of which you automatically become a part when you connect with Candy Crush Saga), which is a social chart with special tasks you have made in games, updates on your Facebook wall are posted only with your authorization; similarly, requests to your friends are sent only if you have intentionally sent them from the game.

What Is Wrong With Items That Don’t Work?

Purchasing items from the shop which seem to be non-functional is not a rare situation. The explanation has again to do with internet connection. When you shop for something, a message that verifies the purchase is sent to Candy Crush Saga by the Apple iTunes Store. Therefore, if the internet connection is weak at that moment, the message cannot be delivered properly, causing the problem. Luckily, this malfunction is very likely to be sorted out by tapping on the Restore button, thus bringing back your iTunes purchases. In case this doesn’t work, check your e-mail account and find your item on the receipt sent to you and track down the download. In any other case, click on the Report a Problem link.

Is There Anything That I Can Do If The Game Crashes When Going Into A Level?

Yes. Usually, a game crash is the outcome of inadequate memory of your device. To deal with that, it is recommended to clear its memory by restarting it –while managing to save your data at the same time.

Are There Any New Levels On The Way?

Yes. King.com has the intention of coming up with updates concerning new levels and other features, every three weeks.

COMPATIBILITY

Which Devices Are Compatible With Candy Crush Saga?

The Minimum iOS version recommended is the 4.3.5 and can be played on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, iPad 1 or later models, and third generation or later iPod Touch. The game is also available on Android devices to download via Google Play; note here that these models must be equipped with ARMv7 processor, run on Android OS 2.2 or higher, support OpenGL ES 2.0 and have a 320×480 resolution or higher.

So, we hope that you have found this FAQ guide useful. All you have to do now is enjoy hours of entertaining gaming with Candy Crush Saga!
