N/A Level 2
Level 1 (SCC) is the first level and the first moves level in Steve's Candy Crush. To pass this level, you must score at least 120 points in 2 moves. When there are no more moves left, Sugar Crush will activate all special candies and score you additional points.

This level is a tutorial level that teaches players how to play the game and make matches.


  • Just play normally and make matches. The requirement of 120 is equal to what you will get from the 2 moves provided, as one match = 60 points, and 60 x 2 = 120. This makes the level impossible to fail.
  • To get more points, see if you can make a striped candy and activate it, or pray for cascades. They will easily get you 3 stars in the end.


One-Star: 120 (Difficulty: None) points

Two Stars: 180 (Difficulty: Very Easy) points

All-Stars: 240 (Difficulty: Very Easy) points

Strategy, and earning additional stars

There is no strategy, as all you need to do is make a couple matches, and you win.

  • To get 2 stars, you would need to make an additional match in addition to the 2 moves provided (as 60 x 3 = 180). 3 stars requires two additional matches, so getting additional stars relies on cascades. Even though the board is really small, the matches you make when you begin the level are at the bottom, making cascades much more likely to happen compared to the old version, especially since there's 4 colors.

Previous versions

Level 1 CCS3

The old version, which was ridiculously hard to get 2 and 3 stars.

In the 1st version of this level, this level had 8 colors, and the tutorial matches took place at the top of the board. The star scores remained the same. So, due to these factors, getting additional stars was notoriously hard in the first version, and getting 3 stars was almost impossible. It was considered the hardest level in Reality to earn 3 stars until the release of Wafer Woods on September 13, 2015.


The board layout remains the same every time the level is restarted.
