Candy Crush Saga Blockers

Blockers:


A blocker is very common element and main obstacle. They prevent a player from accomplishing a level goal. They usually take up a square (except of cake bombs, which occupy four squares).  Blockers threaten the combination of candies and can be very annoying. Blockers are the main obstacles of the board, so the player has to clear them. Nearly every level has at least one type of blocker. Sometimes blockers are useful because they can prevent chocolate from spreading and very necessary for some type of levels. There are many different types of blockers, each having different properties, so a player has to deal with each one differently. Some are easier to deal with, some harder. Blockers cannot be swapped with other candies, except of liquorice swirl and time bomb candies. Blockers are listed below:

Dark Chocolate:

It has properties identical to chocolate, but the only difference is the way how it spreads. One square of Dark Chocolate is generated whenever one Dark Chocolate gains a layer or when a new Dark Chocolate square has spread. A chocolate square with the lowest number of layers will gain a layer, up to the highest-layered Dark Chocolate on the board. If there are 3-layered chocolate, 1-layered chocolate becomes 2-layered first, then 2-layered chocolate becomes 3-layered. A new dark chocolate square will spread only if the layers of all the dark chocolate squares are identical – they are all at the maximum number of layers currently present on the board. Therefore, Dark Chocolate spreads slower than regular chocolate, as the equivalent number of Dark Chocolate squares take up less space than regular chocolate. Though it requires more hits to destroy, they are less disruptive to your moves than regular chocolate.
