Guide for Candy Crush Soda Saga Special Candies with Tips
How Candy Crush Soda Saga Special Candies Work
Candy Crush Soda Saga special candies are the product of combining more than three candies of the same color together in one match. So if you match 4 – 7 candies together you get a special candy. These specials make the game fun to play, and they are vital to completing most of the toughest Candy Crush Soda Saga levels.
Special candies in Candy Crush Soda Saga are just as important as they are in Candy Crush. The ones you remember are still around, but there are also a couple of new ones to go with them. While all the special candies look just how they used to there are some changes in how specials work in general, and some changes in the results that come from their combos.
Because the details are different for the Candy Crush Soda Saga special candies we have put together in-depth guides for them. The main things you need to know when you are new to the game is that making them is usually a good idea, the combos are improved from how they worked in Candy Crush Saga, some specials are better than others in different situations, and that when you make a special candy in soda it won’t necessarily wipe out special candies you use in the match.
This last point is one or our favorite changes in the basic functions in Candy Crush Soda compared to the original. It may be a little hard to understand what we mean, but you will definitely notice it when you play if you are a Candy Crush veteran. An example of this would be if you make a match with five candies in a straight line with one of the five being a striped candy. The resulting color bomb will wait until after the striped candy is activated before it falls into place. This means you get the benefits of both special candies instead of losing the new one in the match.
The one exception to this is when you activate a wrapped candy in another special match. Since the wrapped candy explodes once and then drops to explode again it will often activate the new special candy at this point.
Make the Candy Crush Soda Saga Special Candies Work for You
As we mentioned before using Candy Crush Soda Saga special candies can be the difference between failing or completing a tough level. After you read all of our special candy guides you will understand how each of them work. Pay special attention to the combos because this is where the specials really start to shine.
If you find yourself stuck on a level be sure to visit our level guides index to see how we completed it. Different Candy Crush Soda Saga special candies will be more effective than others in different situations. By reading our guides and watching our videos you will be able to see how to best approach the level.
While making special candies is generally a good thing to do, there are times when it won’t always be beneficial to make the match. If the special candy that you can make won’t help you progress towards your goals it is probably a good idea to focus somewhere else. In our own experience we can say that since making fish was new in soda that we started out making them at every chance. As we progressed through the game we realized that in some cases we were just wasting a valuable move.
