General Tips & tricks for higher score

  1. Matching 3 candies is “Ok” but to boost you score, always try to create special candies and use combinations of special candies
  2. Don’t believe on suggestions given by game. Do what you think is right.
  3. Try to remove blocker, Candies in corner and give preference to moves in bottom.
  4. Use boosters wisely. Don’t waste them.
  5. You can reset your board without loosing life. If you find candies setup is very messed up and you don’t like, Don’t just play to get new board. It will waste your time and life both. Click on the exit button on dashboard and again load that level.

Please Note – This trick works on handheld devices only. On facebook if you exit you will loose one life
