Guide for the Candy Crush Soda Saga Striped Candy with Tips
How the Candy Crush Soda Saga Striped Candy Works
Special candies are very important in Candy Crush Soda Saga. You can create them by matching more than three candies of the same color together, and they have different properties that can help you reach your level goals faster. Special candies can also be used in combos in soda, and knowing how to use the Candy Crush Soda Saga striped candy will have you on the way to beating some of the toughest levels in the game.
To make a striped candy you have to combine four candies of the same color together. In the screenshots below you can see the match necessary to make the Candy Crush Soda Saga striped candy, and the resulting striped candy that the match produces.
To activate Candy Crush Soda Saga striped candies you have to match them with two or more other candies of the same color. When activated the striped candy will damage an entire row or column at once. This speeds up the process of clearing ice, removing blockers, clearing chocolate, and freeing bears trapped in honey. The shot from a striped candy removes one layer from any obstructions that are in its path.
Striped candies can also pop bottles, and clear candy out-of-the-way for bears in bubble levels. Striped candies are versatile, and can be useful on all the different level types. You will want to make a Candy Crush Soda Saga striped candy when you can, unless you see that you can use those four candies to set up a bigger match.
In the screenshot above you can see that the striped candy we made has vertical stripes. This means it will clear the column that it is sitting in when you make a match to activate it. You can also make striped candies with horizontal stripes that will clear the row that they are in when you shoot them off. Basically whichever way the stripes are pointing is where the striped candy will go, and they are based on which direction you moved the fourth candy to make the match. The screenshots below shows how to make a horizontal striped candy.
Candy Crush Soda Saga Striped Candy Combos
The Candy Crush Soda Saga striped candy is useful by itself, but can become more powerful when you match it with other special candies. The list below shows all the possible combinations, and explains the resulting action you get from these special candy combos.
|Striped candy + striped candy||This combo will result in the candies clearing things out in one direction. For example if you match two horizontal striped candies it will damage the row and column from where you made the match instead of just going one way.|
|Striped candy + wrapped candy||This combo is similar to matching two stripes together except better. When you make this match it creates a large striped candy that damages three rows in both directions.|
|Striped candy + fish||When you make this combo the result is a striped fish that has properties from both specials. The striped fish will swim to an obstruction like a normal fish, but will cause damage in the row or column that it is sitting in as well. Striped fish take on the direction they will shoot from the striped candy you used to make the match. So a fish + a horizontal striped candy will hit its target, and go on to damage that entire row.|
|Striped candy + color bomb||This combo is great for creating a lot of damage. When you match a stripe with a color bomb it changes all the candies of that color into stripes which immediately go off. For example if you match a red striped candy with a color bomb all red candies on the board turn into red stripes. The stripes direction doesn’t matter in this match as it will create striped candies of both types when you make the match with the color bomb.|
|Striped candy + coloring candy||This is the greatest striped candy combo. It works like a color bomb match, but since the coloring candy has a color too it changes all the candies of both colors into stripes. So if you match an orange striped candy with a yellow coloring candy all the orange and yellow candies on the board will become striped and start shooting off in all directions.|
