Candy Crush Cheat – How to get unlimited lives and Tips


Candy Crush – Background


The latest mobile game craze is Candy Crush Saga, which is very fun to play and addicting as well. However, there is one feature that annoys me, which is the limitation of 5 lives.  If you fail 5 times in a role, you need to wait for 30 minutes to recover one life. After some research on the net and some messing around with my IPhone, I found a way to get unlimited lives without doing any waiting using the following Candy Crush Cheat method.

Step 1. Go to IPhone Settings -> General:

Candy Crush Tips (Submit your tips in the comment section)


1. If you fail a bunch of time in Candy Crush, do not give up.  From my personal experience I notice that if you get stuck on a level after many tries, you will start getting a lot of luck in term of candy alignment.  I believe this is intentionally built into the Candy Crush game to prevent people from giving up.

2. Try to align the special candies next to each other.  The combos are very powerful in Candy Crush, my favorite is the combo mixing the cookie (black with colorful dots) and the striped candy.

3. Do not forget the goal of the level.  I notice many times I found great moves (ie. generate special candies) that would not help me in achieving the goal of the level.  These are moves wasted because I cannot control the impulse of making a great but useless move.

4. Scan your entire Candy Crush board before making a move.  Before you make a move, you should look for opportunities to form special candies (striped, wrapped, cookie).
