Mixed Mode level icon

Mixed Mode levels are one of the six level types in Candy Crush Saga. This level type's icon is two separating colours with a white rotation. Mixed Mode levels first appear in Sugar Shrubs, the 114th episode, with the first mixed mode level being level 1688.

Mixed levels (or Mixed Mode levels, as is referred to on mobile) are levels with two or more different objectives. They only occur at very high levels. Formerly, there was only one type of mixed level, where the player has to bring down all ingredients and clear all the jelly. However, another new combination has been added recently. Sugar Crush is like candy order and ingredients levels, where remaining moves will become striped candies. A different sugar crush occurs during the jelly-timed mixed combo. Mixed levels currently make up roughly 7.56% of all levels, at 225 total appearances, all situated at the high levels. At first, all mixed levels were the combination of jelly and ingredients levels. This changed starting from level 2781 when jelly-timed mixed levels are introduced.

The icon is a half pink, half blue circle with a swirl in the middle.

Like all level types (except moves levels and jelly levels on web version, moves levels and candy order levels on mobile version), it has its own music theme.

Mixed Mode levels are the most difficult level types in the game. They only appear very far in the game. Only a few Mixed Mode levels are easier than medium. The first mixed level, 1688, used to be easy, but now it is also very hard and hexagonal.

List of Mixed Mode level types

First level Combination Goal Appearances
Level 1688 Jelly Ingredient drop Clear all the jellies and collect all ingredients 217 (Flash)

219 (HTML5)

Level 2781 Jelly Timed Clear all the jellies in (Time limit) seconds 8 (Flash)
9 (HTML5)

Jelly + Ingredient

Level 1688 Reality Buffed

Level 1688 - The first Jelly+Ingredients Mixed Mode level and the first Mixed Mode level overall

In this level type, the player must clear all the jellies and collect all ingredient in a move limit.

After completing the level, Sugar Crush is activated, and all remaining moves will transform any random candies into striped candies and get 3,000 points.

Jelly + Timed

Level 2781 Reality-0

Level 2781 - The first Jelly+Time Mixed Mode level

In this level type, the player must clear all the jelly in a time limit.

After completing the level, Sugar Crush is activated and:

  • On Flash version: Each one second of the remaining times will produce 3 jelly fish and give 1,020 points.
  • On HTML5: Each 5 seconds of the remaining times will produce 3 jelly fish and give 1,020 points. If there are fewer than 5 seconds, nothing happens.

This is the final mixed mode combination on Flash version.


Fish in mixed level
  • This was the most important update after the end of Dreamworld. Now that Dreamworld has been removed, this is the most important update in the game.
  • A mixed level marked as a hexagon level on web versions will show as a moves level. However, if the player hovers over the icon, it will change back to the mixed level hexagon icon, like usual.
  • If an ingredient is on a jelly square and the square is hit with a special candy the jelly square will be removed.
    • On web version, this won't happen if a jelly fish appears on the square or if it is hit with a lollipop hammer.
    • On mobile version, jelly fish can remove jelly behind an ingredient, but lollipop hammer cannot be used on an ingredient, whether it has jelly behind or not.
  • When an ingredient is collected, the jelly that is in the ingredient exit will lose one layer. This also happens with chocolate. If an ingredient goes to an exit, the chocolate squares next to the exit will be removed. This does not happen on mobile version.
  • On web version, despite the fact that both jelly fish and coconut wheel boosters can be activated at the start of the level, the jelly fish and coconut wheel still can't be combined.
    • On Flash version however, only jelly fish can be used, but not coconut wheel. Because of the end of Flash version, all further mixed levels will only allow the use of jelly fish.
    • The jelly fish booster can be used at the start of jelly-timed mixed levels, but initially, only on HTML5 version. After an update, boosters can now be used on Flash version.
  • The panel which shows objectives will show both jelly and ingredients. According to an old screenshot of level 1688 there were originally going to be two different panels, one for jelly and one for ingredients.
    • For mobile version, while jelly levels and ingredients levels show the objective as "item n / t", in mixed mode they are just shown as "item n", like in candy order levels.
    • If the target requires jelly and cherry, but no hazelnut, the second slot will be empty.
  • Aside from timed levels, this is one of the two level types that did not get introduced in Dreamworld, as it ended on level 665 before being removed entirely.
    • This is more than 1000 levels after Level 665. Coincidentally, the second mixed combination was introduced more than 1000 levels after the first.
  • This level was released almost a year after the end of Dreamworld (until it was removed from the game).
  • For a long time it was unknown if more level type combinations would be introduced, besides jelly + ingredients. According to the description on mobile, this level type is a mixture of two or more level types, suggesting that there would probably be a new combination at some point. Jelly + Timed combo is introduced in level 2781.
  • Sprinkle Sea became the first episode to have all 6 level types.
  • There may be a mixed level in the future where both jelly fish and coconut wheels appear in the same level at the start. If so, it may be at the same time an update allows jelly fish and coconut wheels to be combined together.
  • Level 2127 was the first mixed mode level to have 50 moves, but got buffed to have 38 moves. Now the first one is Level 2149.
  • Currently, level 1750, level 1934, level 2130, level 2169, level 2246 and level 2311 are only ones to have difficulty lower than medium!
  • The unreleased version of level 1931 was thought to be the combination of ingredients levels and candy order levels, and the unreleased version of level 2090 was thought to be the combination of jelly levels and candy order levels. However, they are not true since those versions are glitched.
  • Mixed mode levels appeared later than when all episode characters made an appearance. The last episode character is the Count, at the 99th episode, Dessert Desert, fifteen episodes prior.
  • Glazing Glen is the first episode with both mixed combinations.
  • This is the last level type on Flash version.
