Started the game late after my friend forced to install, then only realised what are those facebook request (lives / ticket) about. If you still got no idea what is sugar crush, just head to Play Store or App Store, search for Candy Crush Saga developed by King.com, install on your phone/tablet and start playing it.
For those that stucked on a same level for a long time and frequently out of lives, then this post might give a little boost. There are few cheat and tips that i collected, as below:
After finished up all your five lives, player need to wait 30 minutes per live or request it from friends. Time skipping is a way to confuse Candy Crush Saga native app timer, in result, unlimited lives (sort of, by repeat steps of time adjustment). The time skipping cheat was tested on Apple iPhone 5 and HTC One X+ (stock OS), it works perfectly but the weird thing is it doesn’t work on Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy S2.
As video above, a better colors arrange on the beginning will always help. Once you never start a move, it will not deduct any live, press back and re-enter the level to get a better start. Note that this will not work on time target level, ex: score 20000 in 60 seconds, time will start counting down right-away when entered the game.
Two thing about Candy Crush Facebook app on PC:
i) PC version offer free boosters on starting (ex: color bomb, striped & wrapped).
ii) lives + timer counter between two is not related, ex: finished 5 lives on phone, jump on laptop for another 5 lives.
