Moves are one of the main features of Candy Crush Jelly Saga. A move consists of matching at least three same-colored candies in a row or column, or switching a color bomb, coloring candy or combining special candies. A successful match will decrease the total number of remaining moves by one.
After the level target is accomplished, Sugar Crush will activate, converting all remaining moves into special candies and earning you additional points.
The number of moves can vary a lot. When you run out of moves and you haven't reached the level objective, you'll fail the level.
This feature is first released on February 4 2020. When the player has run out of moves, an option table below will show up.
To get 3 free moves, the player must watch any ad given; and the player needs an internet connection to perform this. To boss levels, you only get 2 free moves to stun the boss. If you have run out of moves again, the feature won't appear.
The player has a maximum of 5 times watching ads in one day.
On September 4, 2021, the player can get 3 moves to stun boss instead of 2.
On September 16 2021, there is a new update when you have run out of moves. You will have 3 turns to watch ad and get free moves. 2 first turns have 2 moves, the last turn has 1 move. The purple circle will start at the first free move of "Watch Ad". After you watched the first video, "+5 moves" option will disappear and the circle will move to the next free move. The player can select "Watch Ad" again or choose "Play on" if you think it's enough. You need to be careful a bit because if you hit "Back" on the phone, the gameplay will freeze and you must replay from scratch.
On September 30 2021, 1 free move was replaced by 1 free striped candy at the last turn.
On October 13 2021, a free striped candy was removed. You only have 2 turns to watch ad and get free moves. On October 14 2021, it is back with 3 turns to watch ad and get free moves.
On October 18 2021 in the morning, you also have 2 turns to watch ad and get free moves. However, there is a bit change. The first turn has 2 moves and the second turn has 1 move. Until the same day in the evening, it is suddenly back with 3 turns to watch ad and get free moves.
On January 14 2022 in the morning, there is a bit change. The first turn has 3 moves and the third turn has 2 moves, 2 free moves at the second turn was replaced by 1 free color bomb. Not so long, it is suddenly back with 3 turns to watch ad and get free moves.
Each version can be changed randomly in a period of time.
It also works the same in boss levels. If you have run out of moves again, the feature won't appear.
