Blocker is a very common element and the main obstacle in Candy Crush Jelly Saga. They prevent a player from accomplishing a level goal. They usually take up a tile (1x1 square). These objects can take on one or more of the following functions:

  • Prevent a player from accessing or using candies (i.e. liquorice locks and jelly cubes)
  • Prevent a player from clearing blockers (i.e. jelly cubes and cotton clouds)
  • Prevent candies from taking up a space unless cleared (i.e. cupcakes and fishing nets)
  • Prevent a special candy (in particular, Striped Candies) from performing their normal function (i.e. liquorice swirls, wiggling, and candyvores)
  • Cover up candies (i.e. cotton clouds)

Blockers are the main obstacles of the board, so the player has to clear them. Nearly every level has at least one type of blocker. Levels can have up to three to six types of blockers.

There are many different types of blockers, each having different properties, so a player has to deal with each one differently. Some are easier to deal with, some harder.

Poll Edit

What type of blockers do you hate?

  • In the levels with a lot of sections, if the blockers don't belong to the current section after the player completes the levels, all of them will be removed, except liquorice swirls.
  • During Sugar Crush, if special candies are in the blockers like liquorice locks, jelly cubes, cotton clouds (except wiggling), they will destroy blockers themselves.
  • Ironically, two-layered cupcake is presented in the initial layout before the one-layered cupcake. However, one-layered cupcake can be seen if a layer is removed from a two-layered cupcake.
  • One-layered jelly cube is seen at Red Velvet Valley, but two-layered jelly cube was not seen continuously until Mochi Mountain Village.
