While studios have been investing millions into developing games with gorgeous graphics, powerful story lines and life-like gaming engines, very few of these titles can claim to be more popular than Candy Crush Saga, an addictive match-three puzzle video game that is bound to have its own rehab in the near future.
Here are some pro-tips from the game's experts.
Get More Lives
Getting extra lives on the game is rather easy. Players will have to simply set their handset's clock two hours ahead. This can be done by navigating to Settings > General> Date & Time > Set Time Off > Set Date and Time. Over here, players must simply add two hours to the clock to be rewarded with 4 more lives.
Always Try Starting at the Bottom
Easily one of the most effective strategies for beginners, crushing candy at the bottom rather than at the top, works wonders since candies will keep dropping down and give you free moves.
Get +5 Seconds
Try making a candy crush chain with at least +5. This trick, if applied effectively, will add 5 seconds to a time trial level. Have a look at the left lower corner of the screen to tell if it is a time trial level or a clear the jelly level.
Infinite Lives on Facebook Version
Make sure you have a browser that supports multiple tabs; Chrome and Firefox are good options. Keep multiple tabs of the game open on your browser. This will come in handy during those harder levels, since you will not have to wait for lives to refresh as on each open version of Candy Crush you have 5 lives ready. However, users will have to refresh the pages (all tabs) when they pass a level.
Reshuffle Levels without Losing Lives
Upon opening up new levels, most players can immediately judge their difficulty. Sometimes, players are dealt a bad hand in the game since the candy is arranged in a rather challenging manner. Players can reshuffle the arrangement. On the mobile version of the game, simply open the level and then press the exit button without making any moves. Once you return, the candy will be reshuffled in new, hopefully easier position. This action can be performed over and over without lives being lost.
Keep Fish Candy Aside until the End
Fish candies can be very nifty since they zone in on any remaining jelly. Saving them until the end will allow players to get those hard to reach jellies. Another amazing feature is that they will get rid of jellies which are under frosting blocks. This can be done without having to get rid of the frosting separately. All in all, this trick will allow you to blaze through levels even faster.
How to Hit High Scores More Often
A trick that's easier said than done. Players are advised to complete a level with as extra moves left over. These extra moves will in turn transfer into more points as a school of jelly fish or striped candy will clear parts of the board. This does not guarantee that you will garner more points. However, there is a good chance that players will make those high scores if they use this trick effectively.
