Color Bomb (also called a Hypercube) is one of the special candies in Candy Crush Soda Saga that was brought from the original game Candy Crush Saga. It is made of a chocolate ball with rainbow sprinkles on it. It is thought that this special candy is based on Australian treat known as a chocolate freckle.

In many ways, a color bomb works the same as in Candy Crush Saga but the way it works in combos is different, which usually more powerful.


A color bomb is created when 5 candies (including special candies and bottles) of the same color form either a horizontal or vertical straight line. When formed, 200 points are given to the player. As in the original game, color bombs are not linked to any specific color. Therefore, an identical color bomb will always be created regardless of the color of candies that made it.

It is easy to form a color bomb when the board has less than 5 colors.



Since a color bomb is not linked to any specific color, it cannot form a matching combination with other candies or bottles on the board. However, it will be activated if swapped with any regular or special candy or a bottle. Therefore, it is not possible to move a Color Bomb without getting it detonated. The effect will depend on the type of candy the color bomb is swapped with.

Swapping with Regular Candy or BottleEdit

When a color bomb is swapped with a regular candy or bottle, the color bomb will release energy charge striking all candies (including special and bottles) that match the color of the swapped regular candy/bottle. The affected regular candies/bottles will be destroyed and the special candies will be instantly activated.

If the affected regular candies and bottles are trapped in licorice locks, they will get unlocked but not destroyed. However, the locked special candies will get both unlocked and activated.

If a color bomb is activated by special candy’s effect, it will strike the candies/bottles of the dominant color on the board.
