Here in part 2 of my guide to Candy Crush Soda Saga, we’ll dig a bit deeper into the new stuff that’s been added over Candy Crush Saga. Soda, gummy bears, and fish candies, oh my!
I Caught You A Delicious Bass
One of the most interesting and often most important new candies in Soda Saga is the fish candy. If you read the special candies guide, you know you make a fish candy by putting together a square of 4 (or sometimes more) candies.
The fish is unique because it will seek out important squares and break the candy inside them. One of the core issues on many levels is that you’ve got to make matches in tricky spots – corners, for example. Often making a square somewhere else and then matching the fish candy is easier and costs fewer moves.
Do be warned, the fish doesn’t always seek the squares you might want it to. For instance, on a “find the hidden bears” level, it may break frosting where there are no bears!
Candy Crush Soda Saga Tip Generally, the fish candy is best when there are only a few “important” squares on the board. Usually this means if you have a choice between a fish candy and another special candy (ie, a striped candy) you may want to pick the fish if it’s late in the level, or the striped if it’s still early.
You Sunk My Gummy Bear!
There are a couple of new gummy bear related game types in Candy Crush Soda Saga, so let’s go over some tips for these.
“Find all the bears” is a new objective type for Candy Crush Soda Saga. On the surface, it looks similar to “break all the jelly” levels from Candy Crush Saga. However, it’s subtly different. In some levels of Candy Crush Soda Saga, not every frosting square covers a bear.
You can tell which squares do block gummy bearsby a couple of different methods.
- One I call the “battleship” method – exposing part of a gummy bear will tell you where the rest is. Gummy bears only come in certain shapes an sizes, the smallest being 2 squares by 1 square. If you find part of a gummy bear, you know where more of it is.
- The other is the “shower glass” method. When frosting only has one match left, you can see the gummy bear underneath, if there is one. It turns the square a vaguely blueish/greenish tint that squares without bears don’t get.
From left to right, we have:
- a red candy on top of a frosting square with NO gummy bear
- an orange candy on top of a frosting square that is too thick to see if there’s a gummy or not
- A yellow candy on top of a frosting square WITH a gummy bear
- A red candy on top of a gummy bear, with no frosting
See the difference?
The other bear-related level is one where you must get the bears above the candy necklace line(s) on the level. Here, the soda level comes into play. Speaking of soda…
Another important new feature of Candy Crush Soda Saga is the titular soda. The soda only comes into play on certain levels, but it fundamentally changes the way candies move on the level.
The soda level only increases whenever soda bottles are broken. On some levels, the soda bottles are fixed and no new ones will ever appear, and on other levels they are mixed in with other candies. Soda bottles have to be matched and broken just like candies do. They otherwise behave like candies of the same color.
Wherever the soda level is, that’s where the candy will rise or fall to. Candy will move up from the bottom of the screen to just under where the soda is, and candy will likewise fall from the top to just above where the soda is.
This can cause some weird effects on some levels. If there’s something blocking candy from moving down on a level, increasing the soda will cause candies to float up from the bottom. This can be important as some levels really need to be attacked from the bottom.
