What a scam!!!!! And no wonder it is biggest money making app of all time!!! Candy Crush gets you hooked and then blam you are practically forced to pay money to continue playing.
It is very similar to Bejeweled and Bejeweled Deluxe where you swap items to make a row or column of 3 or more.
The biggest difference is instead of being times you only have a set number of moves. This can be EXTREMELY frustrating. I found looking up tutorials and walkthoughs for Candy Crush o to be quite helpful.

Candy Crush Levels Help Guide
Many times I have exhausted all my Candy Crush moves and am given the option to pay $$$$ to continue or wait half an hour for more candy Crush lives. You get a new Candy Crush life every half hour.
What I end up doing because I REFUSE to pay money to play these dumb games is play Words with Friends or just bail completely. I can only imagine people getting caught up and getting nickel dimed into bigger and bigger money.
Tips and Hints for Winning Candy Crush
Here are my most useful Candy Crush Tips so far:
If you are reading this post and looking for ways to win at Candy Crush they you presumably understand the concept of the game.
Here is a quick explanation of the Candy Crush and how to play :
Match 3 or more like candies in rows and columns with set number of moves and various obstacles.
1) Jelly Squares on Candy Crush
When on jelly levels there are two types of jelly squares one transparent and one more opaque.
Clear Jelly squares by making a match with one of the candies in the square.
The more opaque stones you need to “break” the stone layer to get to the jelly square underneath.
To do this you need to make a match NEXT to the stone square.
Here is a big tip for clearing jelly squares and naming you Candy Crush levels is to make sure you clear the ones tucked away in corners and along edges of top and bottom as soon as you can. This is where I would get stuck until I started clearing them away.
2) Timed Levels on Candy Crush
No big revelations here- In timed level you only have specific amount of time to clear board. Whe in a timed level really focus on getting candies by making combo matches and more than 3 matches in a row.
Candy Crush Combos
- The best combos to look out for are matching two rows at once. You can do this by matching 3 across and 3 down in a T shape ( 3 candies across and then 3 down with candy in center) or an L-shape 3 down then 3 across.
Types of Candy and What they Do in Candy Crush
1) First type you see is
Red- Jelly Bean
Yellow- Lemon Drop
Green = Square ( I call this a chiklet)
Later you see purple which like a grape cluster.
Color Bomb= The one that looks like a chocolate sprinkle timbit. Earn by matching 5 candy in a row.
You activate by switching with another candy and it will clear all candies of that color on the board.
Striped Candy- earned by matching 4 candies in a row.
Striped Candy + Striped Candy:
Effect: Activates both candies- one across the board going up and other down.
Striped Candy + Wrapped Candy = A Striped Wrapped Candy.
Effect: Becomes a GIANT and clears 3 rows and 3 columns across and down.
Striped Candy + Color Bomb =
Effect: Transforms all candies of that color to Striped Candy, then they all activate.
Wrapped Candy + Wrapped Candy = Clears 24 candies from the board.
More Candy Crush General Tips
Ignore the flashing suggestions. I am convinced they give you made moves on purpose so you have to buy from them. I wish there was a function to turn off.
Save you “power” candies for combination rather than just using on their own. It wont matter so much in early levels but you need to get in the habit of saving them.
On ingredient levels work on vertical moves and moving them down.
I will keep adding them as I discover :-)
