Candy Crush Saga Level 5 Hints

During this level you will learn about creating Color Bomb candies. You create a Color Bomb candy by making a match of 5 candies (see image 1). When you combine a Color Bomb candy with any other regular candy it will clear all of the candies of the same color from the playing field (see image 2).

And as you would have guessed you can also combine Color Bomb candies other special candies (see image 3). Here are all possible combinations in Candy Crush Saga:

Striped Candy + Striped Candy Combination

The Striped candy + Striped candy combination is the easiest one to make. When you combine 2 Striped candies both candies will activate. One candy will clear a vertical column and the other will clear a horizontal row. If both candies have stripes facing the same direction, one will be randomly switched.

Striped Candy + Wrapped Candy Combination

When you combine a Striped candy with a Wrapped candy (as shown in the video above), it will clear three rows and three columns, forming a plus sign effect similar to the Striped candy + Striped candy combination, only 3x bigger.  You can clear a significant amount of the playing field with this move.

Striped Candy + Color Bomb Candy Combination

When you combine a Striped candy with a Color Bomb candy all of the candies on the board of the same color as the striped candy will also become striped and activate in random directions. You can clear the whole board with this move if you have enough of that colored striped candy on your board.

Since you can’t move a Color Bomb candy without activating it, it can be difficult to find.

Wrapped Candy + Wrapped Candy Combination

The Wrapped candy + Wrapped candy combination doesn’t create a big effect. When you combine 2 Wrapped candies all candies are cleared two boxes around the two Wrapped candies (a total of 24 surrounding candies). The wrapped candies will then fall down and activate as normal candies.

Wrapped Candy + Color Bomb Candy Combination

The Wrapped candy + Color Bomb candy combination is the least effective of all the special candy combos. When you match a Wrapped candy with a Color Bomb candy all the candies that are the same color as the Wrapped candy will be cleared. Another random colored jelly will be cleared as well.

Color Bomb Candy + Color Bomb Candy Combination

The Color Bomb candy + Color Bomb candy combination is the most powerful special candy combination in Candy Crush Saga. When you combine 2 Color Bomb candies your entire playing field will be cleared. This is by far the best combination you can find, but finding it is not easy!

Match candies as low on the playing field as possible as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully matching some automatically and create new opportunities to make special candies.
