With Candy Crush Saga, you start with five lives but they quickly get used up when you’re stuck on a hard level. It takes 30 minutes to receive a new life, so 2.5 hours until you get a full set of lives again, if you’re starting from zero. This is an incredibly long time to wait, especially when you think you may have finally figured out how to beat the level you’re stuck on.
Most people are aware of the time travel trick to gain more lives in Candy Crush Saga, but did you know there are other infinite life hacks for the candy-based puzzle-matching game.
Buying More Lives
The easiest way, of course, is to just pay for a full set of lives. The going rate for 5 lives right now is 12 gold bars or a little over $1. There’s a reason King rakes in an estimated $1 million a day through players not interested in real Candy Crush Saga cheats.
The second way is free but requires some begging, that is asking your friends to send you more lives. A good way to get more lives from friends is to remember to give back for good Candy Crush Saga karma. You might even be lucky enough to have friends that send you more lives without you even having to ask.
But make sure to not accept the bonus lives if you have a full set of lives. For some reason, if you open and accept a life when you have 5 lives already, you don’t get 6 lives. That extra life just goes to waste.
Switch From Mobile To Desktop
If you only play Candy Crush Saga on your smartphone, you might not realize that you can also play on your desktop online on Facebook or the Candy Crush Saga site. When you use up all your lives on your mobile app, you will find a full set of lives on Facebook. Alternatively between your smartphone and desktop could give you more chances to beat the level you’re stuck on.
Incidentally, a lot of levels that are seemingly impossible to beat on your smartphone are a cinch to beat on the desktop. Presumably when you’ve run out of lives on the desktop version, at least some of your lives on your mobile would have been restored. Switching between the regular Candy Crush Saga board and Odus’ Dreamworld is a similar trick if you want to keep playing as you’ll have another full set of lives there.
Time Travel Hack
Most people have heard of this Candy Crush cheat that involves changing the time or date of your smartphone to a future time when all your lives will have been restored but here’s exactly how to do it. Change the time or date to sometime in the future at least 2.5 hours later and you will have full lives in Candy Crush again.
Changing the time and date might confuse some of your other apps, so if you have an appointment or alarm set it might go off. Once you’re done manipulating time, just change the time to automatically.
Delete And Reinstall App
This hack requires you deleting and reinstalling the Candy Crush Saga app and that’s it, you’ll have full lives again when you open the app. This doesn’t affect your progress or gold bars but it does delete all your boosters forever. So only perform this Candy Crush trick when you don’t have any boosters or don’t have any that you care about losing. Be sure to be signed into Facebook to make sure your progress is saved. You also want to make sure you don’t have boosters that you’ve been saving up to use.
