Candy Crush Saga currently holds a whopping 2545 levels in 171 episodes (2515 levels in 169 episodes on mobile), with 1880 Reality levels within 126 Reality episodes on web version (1850 Reality levels within 124 Reality episodes on mobile) and 665 Dreamworld levels within 45 Dreamworld episodes. Every episode has 15 levels except for Reality and Dreamworld episodes one (Candy Town and Sleepy Slopes) and two (Candy Factory and Funky Factory), which only has 10. New levels are being released every week.
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/Mixed (mobile) - 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.
Many people consider jelly levels the hardest level type.
Level 350 was the most hated level of all time before its nerf.
Timed levels are the only levels in which you are not pressured by the amount of moves you have left. However, you have to make quick decisions in order to earn three stars. Level 297 is the hardest timed level to earn three stars.
The episode with most Candy Order levels in Reality is Wafer Wharf with 10. In Dreamworld, it is Sparkle Submarino with 11.
Level 295 and 327 have exactly the same layout with the only difference being the number of jellies. This has happened two other times in the 600s, but each has resulted in the higher level of the pair being replaced with a different type. Before this, no levels had been redesigned to a different type.
Level 65 became so famous once that several other levels based on level 65 are created, including 320 and 430.
All the level numbers ending in 65 except 665 are hard or very hard. Level 65 used to be the most hated level ever, level 165 used to be a very hard candy order level, level 265 is a hard jelly level, level 365 is a very hard candy order level, level 465 is a hard ingredients level, level 565 is a very hard jelly level, and level 765 is a very hard jelly level. However, this trend is broken when level 865 was released.
Levels in the iOS version are marked by a bubble looking element. Once the bubbles were opaque, but after the Meringue Moor update in late January 2014, the bubbles became translucent and more colourful.
Levels ending in 47 (x47) are usually quite hard. Level 147 is an insanely hard jelly level. Level 347 is, once again, an insanely hard candy order level with a high amount of orders. Level 447 is a hard jelly level where mystery candies can be quite troublesome. Level 547 is a very hard jelly level due to the awkward layout. Level 647 is a hard candy order level with a complex order. Level 747 used to be an insanely hard jelly level due to six colours, chocolate spawners, liquorice swirls, and gaps in the board. Level 847 is a somewhat hard level due to the board layout and six colours. Level 1147 is a hard ingredient level. Level 1247 is an insanely hard ingredient level. Level 1347 is a hard ingredient level due to the huge amount of five-layered icings and popcorns.
Currently, the most anticipated level is level 666, the number of the Devil. It is the opener of Episode 46, Crunchy Courtyard, which was released on September 3, 2014.
Most people thought the level would be the hardest level in the game. However, when it was released it was somewhat easy.
This level was originally supposed to be introduced in Dreamworld, but it was removed for some reason.
The x01, x83, and x97 series are the only series to contain all level types:
Levels 1 and 1501 are moves levels, levels 201, 401, 501, 801, and 1101 are jelly, levels 101, 601, and 1001 are ingredients, levels 301, 901, 1201, 1301, and 1401 are candy order, level 701 is a timed level. So, all levels that end in 01 have all five level types in the game.
Levels 83, 183, 483, 1083, and 1183 are jelly levels, levels 283 and 683 are timed levels, levels 383, 1283, and 1383 are ingredients levels, levels 583, 783, 883, and 1483 are candy order levels, level 983 is a moves level. Hence, all levels that end in 83 have all five level types in the game.
Level 97 is a moves level, levels 197, 597, 697, 797, 997, 1297, 1397, and 1497 are jelly levels, levels 897, 1097, and 1197 are ingredients levels, level 297 is a timed level, levels 397 and 497 are candy order levels. Therefore, all levels that end in 97 have all five level types in the game, too.
Levels that end in 99 trend to be hard difficulty or higher. However, there are some exception of them. Level 99 is somewhat hard, 199 is very hard, 399 is hard, 499 is again hard, 599 is somewhat hard, 699 is very hard, 999 is hard, and it ends at 1199 which is very hard.
