In Candy Crush Saga, there are 6 different types of level:
- Moves - get a certain amount of points in a certain amount of moves.
- Jelly - clear all the jelly on the board.
- Ingredients - bring all the ingredients down to the bottom of the board.
- Timed - get a certain amount of points within the time limit.
- Candy Order - crush the amount of candies given on the dashboard in a certain amount of moves.
- Mixed Mode - a mix between two or more level types.
Jelly levels are the most frequent, making up 43% of the levels, whereas target score levels are the rarest, despite the first 5 levels all being target score levels.
|Level type||First appearance||Latest appearance||Appearances|
|Moves||Level 1||Level 1999||88 (4.37%)|
|Jelly||Level 6||Level 1986||810 (40.2%)|
|Ingredients||Level 11||Level 1980||492 (24.42%)|

The different level types bring different "Sugar Crush" effects at the end.
- Moves - there is no real "Sugar Crush" effect here, except inactivated special candies being activated.
- Jelly (web) - for every move remaining, three jelly fish come on the screen and start eating the candies at random, giving you more points.
- Ingredients/Candy Order/Jelly (mobile)/Mixed - both levels have the same effect. For every move remaining, a candy at random will become a striped candy, giving an extra 3000 points for every striped candy. Then they all activate.
- Timed - any +5 candies left on the screen will turn into the exploding wrapped candy and activate itself.
The Dreamworld is a new world separate from the main game that contains levels 1 to 665. They are exact replicas of the original levels except with more blocker introduced earlier and are more common on the board.
