King has just launched a brand new match three game, Candy Crush Soda Saga – a title that’s basically Candy Crush Saga with different elements to match, but one that will certainly keep us busy with its 140 Sodalicious levels (and growing). But I am here to share with you some Candy Crush Soda Saga cheats, tips and ultimately a guide to hopefully help you get the most out of this title and complete each stage quickly and with a three star rating.
So if you got stuck or you simply want to improve your game, read on for our top 10 Candy Crush Soda Saga tips and cheats!
1. Make matches at the top
We normally know that we have to make matches at the bottom in match three games or Candy Crush Saga, but in this particular case, things are a bit different: since pieces come from the bottom upwards, it’s important to make the matches at the top in order to increase the chances of chain reactions and better scores. Just learn how different matches have different effects on the direction of the tiles and make matches accordingly!
2. The Fish Tile is vital
You can use the fish tile to your advantage, and should always do so: you get it randomly in levels or when creating a square with your existing tiles. Then, when you have a fish tile, you can either match it in a series to get a random juice tile removed or you can simply switch it with a nearby tile to remove a juice tile of that color. Extremely useful, especially for getting those hard to get juice bottles and on many occasions, the key to victory! (Bonus: Match it with a donut for a complete madness!)
3. Remove blockers first
The most important tiles to focus on removing are the blockers. Do everything you can to remove them off the board first, as they make things a lot more complicated for you.
4. Use the special bombs together
I know that as soon as you get a special tile, you’re tempted to use it, but remember that if you used it in combination with another super tile, you will get an even greater effect, so try to save those on your board and match them together for extra points.
5. Always look for special candies
Creating a match of three tiles is a good idea if there’s no other option, but always look after the special candies: make matches longer than three tiles, with special shapes (like the square for the fish) and you will get further in the game, easier.
6. Don’t use the suggested moves
In some occasions, the suggested moves are really useful and good, but generally they are not. Before using a suggested move, make sure that there’s no better option on the board for you!
Candy Crush Soda Saga might not seem like the game that requires an awful lot of strategy, but it actually is. So always look at the board, strategize and make sure that you always make the perfect move. Simply creating random matches won’t get you too far in the game, especially when you reach the higher stages.
8. Replay levels
I know this doesn’t sound like strategy advice, but it actually is. Each time you start a new level, you will get a new board with new pieces and eventually, you will get a lucky draw. So if you’re having trouble beating or, more importantly, getting the three star rating in a level, replay it over and over again until eventually you will make it!
9. Focus on the mission
Each level will have a specific requirement for you and make sure you turn that into your ultimate goal. On multiple occasions I have failed to complete a level because I focused too much on removing all the special tiles or not paying attention to the number of moves left. Make sure you do and you know what you have to do in order to complete your level!
10. Add friends
Connecting the game with your Facebook account is vital as you will receive hearts from your friends playing the game. Hearts are important to keep playing and go through the levels faster, so make sure that you connect your Facebook account and add as many active friends as possible.
