So, you’ve just downloaded Candy Crush Jelly Saga, King’s latest game, and you’re not quite sure where to begin. Don’t worry about it, as 148Apps has you covered with some helpful tips on how to get started.
Expect this one to take up your free time like Candy Crush Saga did before it.
Spread that jelly
Candy Crush Jelly Saga is different from its predecessor. Instead of trying to clear jelly, you’re actually trying to spread it around the level. It’s a subtle but important shift, so try not to forget!
Jelly is spread by making matches with candies that have already been covered with the substance. Don’t bother making matches where all the candies are free of jelly. It won’t help you here.
You’re tempted to go match crazy, right? Don’t do it. Take your time and plan each move ahead.
Like with any strategy game, you want to pay attention to the whole board and take it all in. Don’t just focus on one small area. You can accrue some handy combos this way.
Don’t forget to use special candies
Do your best to set up some great special candy combos. Match striped candies with other striped candies for profit and fun. Line up 5 candies together to create a special spotted candy that’ll clear all the gems of the same color that you match it with.
Oh, and those cute jelly fish you’ve seen in other King games? Save them for last. Always! They’ll take out a random but important candy, so they’re often a great way to tackle a tricky spot.
Battling the Jelly Queen
New to Candy Crush Jelly Saga are the Jelly Queen levels. These are the most strategy-focused stages, and they’re great.
The key here is that you’re trying to cover the level with more of your jelly than the Queen. You take it in turns to make a move and you can create special candies to give you an extra move. Plan really carefully here.
Remember though, don’t use one of her colored candies to set up a move - that will only help her out!
