Star is one of the fundamental elements in Candy Crush Saga, present in all levels. In each level, stars can be earned by reaching certain score targets. A player can earn up to a maximum of 3 stars on each level. There are currently a total of 8490 stars (8400 on mobile) that can be earned from 2165 Reality levels (2135 on mobile) and 665 Dreamworld levels: 30 stars for episodes 1 and 2, and 45 for the rest of the episodes.
Reaching a level's target score will award you one star. If you get a score that is a certain number of points over the target score depending on the level, you will be awarded two stars. When you hit the top of the star meter you are awarded three stars. You can tell how close you are to the next star by looking at the meter on the upper left hand side of the screen.
The number of stars you win depends on your score when you complete the level. Let's say you have a level that requires you to score 50,000 points to acquire the first star. If you get anywhere between zero and 49,980 (as points are a multiple of twenty) points, you fail the level. Let's say to get two stars, you have to acquire 100,000 points or more. If you get anywhere between 50,000 and 99,980 points, you stay with one star. If the level requires you to gain 125,000 point to reach three stars and you get anywhere between 100,000 and 124,980 points, you will still be at two stars. Getting beyond 125,000 points will not reward you with any other additional stars.
When you go back to the level selection screen, your level stars will show on the level button. By opening the level info screen, you can find the target score to obtain a new star, or your highest record if you have already collected three stars.
On web version, your friends can see how many total stars you've collected and if you have collected the most stars out of all your friends in a particular Episode, you will be given the Champion Title for that episode.
On mobile version since version 1.67, stars are no longer required in event levels.
When you hover your cursor over the stars bar, information will show up:
