Whether you’re casually playing a couple of rounds while waiting for the bus, or you’ve let yourself get much more obsessed, you’re sure to find some useful Candy Crush cheats in our guide to the popular game.
Well Mark Nunan’s Candy Crush stats are certain to make a mockery of anything you’ve achieved. Although he initially started playing the game to prove his daughter wrong when she said he was ‘too old’ to play, Nunan recently hit level 3007 on the popular match three game, which celebrated its fifth birthday last year.
“The temptation is to play fast as there are so many options, but taking time to look for the opportunities of big explosions and combinations is worth it,” he notes, explaining that these are the best way to move the game forward.
That said, don’t obsess over trying to make big matches with every swipe. As Nunan explains, “3s are the bread and butter of the game and cannot be ignored. The only
times you do focus on 4s and 5s are when you have a timed game with a target score or when you have very limited moves.”
“Frequently the big chains do not present themselves so you have to make moves to allow them to be created. If I see two pairs of the same colour alongside each other I will always look to see if I can move another of the same colour into position.”
Getting these bigger matches is not just visually satisfying with the various explosions that they’ll trigger. The combination of plenty of candies being paired off will also net you fantastic score multipliers, which will help you progress quickly and smash those records.
Although it’s often best to forge your own way, sometimes the game will give you a clear indication of how it wants you to play a level. Sometimes it’s as simple as needing to hit a high score in a smaller amount of moves (in which case, aim big), while other times you’ll need to target certain areas of the board, as Nunan explains:
“Where you have to clear cells or open gates that are in a certain part of the board you have to target certain parts…this is when it is really good to aim for 4s and 5s to get a bigger hit to move those more reinforced squares.”
Like many mobile games, Candy Crush is a game that’s designed to be played in short chunks, and this was a point Mark Nunan was keen to emphasise, where personally he plays during downtime in the day such as while on the train or waiting at a coffeeshop.
This should also keep you from making rash decisions. During the game’s later levels patience becomes a much more important factor, and playing for lengthy sessions could encourage you to make rash decisions and cut corners.
The solution might sound like a bit of a cheat, but Nunan’s recommendation is hard to fault.
But that’s about as far as Nunan is prepared to go in order to manipulate the game, and says that he’s never manipulated his phone’s clock to automatically unlock more lives (although the less principled amongst you might be more tempted).
It’s certainly reassuring to hear that coming from a player who’s happily gotten three thousand levels into the mobile game.
