Level 996 (CCJS)

Level 996 is the first level to have Candy Octopuses.

Candy Octopus is a special candy in Candy Crush Jelly Saga. It appears for first time in the 68th episode, Orange Ocean. The first level in which it is featured is Level 996. This element was devised by Hyper Mystery. It has the same texture as the octopus in Candy Crush Friends Saga.

Candy Octopus is the combination of a weak wrapped candy and safety square.


Candy Octopus

When matched, it explodes only once in a 3×3 area and then leaves ink in the same area (only in the tiles without blockers, except candy bombs and jinxed candies).

A disadvantage is that the explosion will not destroy popcorn and blockers in licorice lock. It will neither activate nor destroy jelly diamonds.

Octopus Ink

The Octopus Ink acts like a Safety Square in a 3x3 area, except that every candy matched in it is worth 3,000 points. After 3 moves, the octopus ink disappears.

Tasty Tour Saga

Candy Octopus returns in Tasty Tour Saga with new mechanics. In jam levels, when a candy octopus touch a jam tile, it becomes a jam octopus. When a jam octopus matched, it explodes only once in a 3×3 area and then leaves jam instead of ink in the same area (even it tiles with blockers like multilayered icing, cupcakes, sugar chests, cake bombs, popcorn, etc). If a jam octopus is activated on tile without jam, it will leave jam instead of ink too.

In levels with soda, candy octopus can change the soda color.
