Hint Moves or Suggested Moves or possibly known as Flashing Candies occur when a player hesitates to make a move. This essentially means a possible move suggested for a player as a hint. Of course, a player doesn't truly have to make those moves. Usually, those are not the best moves, so it is recommended you think of those hints as a way of making this board look fancy instead and come up with your strategy.
Two striped candies adjacent to each other usually are the first matches to flash. The same goes for two adjacent wrapped candies. A wrapped candy + striped candy is also very common hint moves. (What is the priority order).
If there are color bombs or coloring candies, the hint moves may suggest that you activate them, especially when combining them with another special candy.
- When candies at a candy match involving 4 or more candies (mostly resulting in a special candy), only 3 of the candies will vibrate and accompanied by a white frame.
