Guide for Candy Crush Soda Saga Color Bomb with Tips
Candy Crush Soda Saga Color Bomb Details
The color bomb was arguably the best special candy available in Candy Crush Saga. The Candy Crush Soda Saga color bomb works the same, but the way it works in combos is different. This post will be useful for new players, and a good refresher if you haven’t played for a while.
Tips for the Candy Crush Soda Saga Color Bomb
The color bomb or chocolate bomb is a well-known special candy from the original Candy Crush Saga. It is a round chocolate-colored ball with rainbow sprinkles on it. It always reminded me of a cake pop you might see in a cafe or a bakery, but evidently it is based on an Australian treat know as a chocolate freckle. If you want to know more about the inspiration behind the Candy Crush Soda Saga color bomb check out this blog post with a nice recipe for making them.
You make the Candy Crush Soda Saga color bomb by matching five pieces of candy that are the same color in a straight line. You can match them vertically or horizontally which both produce the same chocolate bomb. In the original game any straight-line match of five would result in a color bomb, but since soda has the coloring candy if there are extra pieces involved you will get one of those. In the screenshot below you can see the match that you need to produce this powerful special candy.
The color bomb is different because you can match it with any normal candy or special, so it doesn’t have to be used in a match three. When you match the Candy Crush Soda Saga color bomb with a normal candy it will remove all the candy pieces of that color from the board. This can be helpful in several situations, but may seem a lackluster considering how difficult it is to set the match up. One advantage of using the chocolate bomb in this way is that it should lead to other matches in a cascade since removing one color brings the others together.
The real benefit of the Candy Crush Soda Saga color bomb is using it in combos with other special candies. In most cases it is a good idea to save a color bomb until you can make a combo with it, but you will have to pay attention to the situation to make sure it doesn’t cost you too many moves. When combined with other special candies the color bomb can become the difference between failing or finishing a level, and there are several tough levels where you will need this combo or one like to finish.
One thing to keep in mind is that the combos in Candy Crush Soda Saga are different from the original game. The color bomb combos in particular are much more powerful than they used to be. As mentioned every situation will differ, but if you can make a combo with a color bomb and another special candy it is almost always a good idea.
The Candy Crush Soda Saga Color Bomb Combos
The following table describes what happens when you mix the Candy Crush Soda Saga color bomb with the other special candies. They can all be very helpful in all the different game modes and level types, but there will be situations where some will work better than others. If you are playing a level with a fewer colors in play there may be more than one choice, so it is important to know how they work.
|Color bomb + striped candy||This will turn all the same color candies on the board into striped candies. It doesn’t matter if you match a horizontal or vertical stripe, the resulting stripes candies will be a mixture of the two. For example if you match a red striped candy with a color bomb all the red candies on the board will be turned into alternating striped candies that will be activated right away..|
|Color bomb + wrapped candy||This will turn all the same color candies on the board into wrapped candies. If you match an orange wrapped candy with a color bomb all the orange candies on the board will become wrapped candies and activate right away.|
|Color bomb + fish||When you match a color bomb with a fish it will turn all the other candies of that color into fish. The fish will then start swimming and attack whatever obstructions are in the way.|
|Color bomb + color bomb||This combo is very special and can turn the tide in any level at any time. When you match two color bombs together it creates a rolling wave that damages obstructions, activates special candies, and in some cases will clear the board.|
|Color bomb + coloring candy||This is the second best combo available in the game, and you are rewarded with an animation that shows Kimmy flying across the board when you make it. When you combine a color bomb with a coloring candy it is similar to the color bomb + color bomb match, but is more powerful. This match will always be helpful, and you should look to make them when you can.|
