• How do I make striped Candies?

    In order to pass each level of Candy Crush Saga there is
    usually a task to complete.

    This can be removing jelly, moving 
    ingredients to the bottom, or scoring a 
    number of points in a given time.

    In order to do this you have to match 
    coloured sweets to remove them from 
    the board.

    Matching 3 sweets in a row removes all 
    three and the other sweets move down 
    to fill the space left.

    Matching 4 sweets in a row gives a 
    striped sweet of the same colour.

    If you make the four sweet line by
    moving a sweet up or down you will get
    a vertically striped sweet.  (above)

    If you get the four sweet combination by moving a sweet sideways you will get a horizontally striped sweet.


    When you match up the striped sweet it will clear a whole line of sweets in the direction of the stripes.
    eg:  A vertically striped sweet will clear all sweets up and down from where the 
    striped sweet is.

    How do I make a wrapped candy/bomb?
    Five sweet combinations.
    If you make a five sweet combination in a T,  L  you get a 
    wrapped sweet.
    Here you can see if I move either one of the orange candies I will make a L shape and get a wrapped candy.

    Below you will see if I move the yellow candy down it will make a T shape.

    ( yellow wrapped sweet below)

    When you match the wrapped sweet with others it will explode a 3 x 3 block of sweets around it, then when the board settles it will explode again taking another 3 x 3 block wherever it has fallen to..

    How do I make a Colour bomb?

    If you make a five sweet combination in a straight line you'll get a spotted candy 
    (colour bomb or chocolate bomb).
    See picture above.
    Swapping a spotted sweet with a plain coloured sweet will remove all sweets of that colour from the board.
    So if you swap it with a green sweet, all greens will be removed, swap with a yellow and all yellows will be removed etc.

    What happens when I combine special sweets?.
    This is where the special sweets are really useful.
    If you combine two striped candies of any colour they will clear a horizontal AND vertical line! 
    Ie: Up & down AND side to side!
    This will occur from the square that you moved the sweet TO, this is important later in the game.

    See the image above. 
    If I move the orange striped sweet to 

    the purple striped sweet the vertical 

    line will be cleared where the PURPLE 

    sweet is. And Vice verse. 

    This works the same if the two striped 

    sweets are above and below each 
    other. Whichever sweet you move TO 
    will be the line which is cleared.

    Swap Striped and wrapped Candies.

    Combine this combination and you get 

    This clears THREE lines vertically and 
    THREE lines horizontally!

    Again this is from the square to which 
    you move the sweet.

    This shows the horizontal blast, once this stops you will get the vertical blast.

    Swap Striped and Spotted Candies.
    Stripe and colour bomb.
    If you combine these 2 candies you get a very powerful combination!
    If you combine, say, a purple striped sweet with s spotted sweet, ALL the purple sweets on the board will turn into striped  purple sweets, randomly striped horizontal or vertical.
    THEN all these striped sweets will line blast taking huge chunks of the screen and scoring loads of points!

    Swap Wrapped with Spotted Candies.
    Combine these 2 sweets and  whatever colour the wrapped sweet is ALL the sweets of that colour will be removed from the board, then when the board has settled another random colour
     is removed. 
    Very powerful on boards with just a few colours.

    Swap Wrapped and Wrapped candies.
    If two wrapped sweets are combined you get a much larger area blast. 
    Then when the board settles, a further large blast.

    Spotted and Spotted.
    Swap colour bomb with colour bomb.

    This is quite difficult but if you combine two spotted sweets it will remove ALL sweets from the board, except certain "special" sweets you'll find later in the game.

    All these results happen whether you make the combinations directly or if they occur from the sweets settling after a move, or as a result of some other combo!
    Eg: If you do a spotted and striped, the result will probably blow up any wrapped sweets and trigger any stripes to do their line blasts!
