1. Draw on your Candy Crush experience
You must be knowing about Candy Crush Saga. This game has also been developed by the same developers of the insanely popular Candy Crush Saga. If you play that, a lot of our Candy Crush tips and tricks apply to Farm Heroes Saga as well. Look to make rows of four, rows of 5, "L" shapes, and "T" shapes. These all rack up your points faster than just standard match-three moves. I especially look for rows of five in Farm Heroes Saga since it completely clears the board of all crops of that kind. A very useful move in almost any occasion.
Completing a row of four will spawn multipliers on crops that surround the cleared ones. That means you rake in crops faster with less moves. Always a winning move.
2. Ride those Hero Mode multipliers
As you complete a level with moves to spare you will activate a special Hero Mode. During Hero Mode the game spits out a bunch of random multipliers. Don't rush through them! Take your time to look around the board and swipe the ones that get you the most points. If you have quite a few moves left, leave some large multipliers be until the very end if you can since they most likely will just grow larger. Just make sure you leave them in a position that won't let you cash them in.
3. Do not waste beans on Rancid
There is nothing hard. Most of the Rancid levels are not difficult to beat. At least the first few aren't. So do not use your beans to make them easier. If it takes you a few times to pass it, that's okay. Beans are much more useful for buying boosters, particularly the shovel for those problem crops that are stopping you from clearing a level.
4. Understanding of multipliers and beans is must.
Basis of your score in the game depend upon as to how many crops you collect. Multipliers, well multiply it. Each crop is worth one point on your score. A multiplier adds that many points, or crops. So where a regular three crop line gives you three crops, multipliers add whatever the multiplier is on top of that. Always try to meet goals by clearing crops with multipliers. It'll save you a lot of moves in the end.
Beans basically translate to whatever your final score is. If you had 150 crops, that's how many beans get added to your bank. You can then cash those out later to buy boosters or to help you beat Rancid.
5. Flowers first
There are some levels where flowers come into play, always get problems ones out of the way first. Mainly problem flowers are defines as ones that are smack in the middle of the game board. They prevent you from making matches and trying to make them around the flowers just cause you to waste more moves than you need to. Instead, meet your flower goal first and then worry about matching the other crops you need.
6. Extra moves
Extra moves cost you gold. Do not ever spend gold on extra moves. We will get into what you should spend gold on in just a few minutes. Importantly, you should never spend it on is extra moves. Unless you're completely and utterly frustrated with a level and know 100% that you can beat it with five extra moves, don't bother. It's never a sure bet and more often than not, it is a waste of your gold.
7. Do not let eggs build up
Whenever you get to the levels that need you to match three eggs in order to start hatching chicks, be sure you don't let too many eggs build up on the board. You will spend more moves trying to get rid of them than you will actually swapping crops to meet goals. I try and keep all the eggs congregated in one area when I can and then match what I need as I see it come up. For the most part it's a strategy that works.
8. Stay low to the ground
As with most match three games, whenever you match towards the bottom you have more of a chance to create a cascading effect towards the top. Whenever you have moves at the bottom that are beneficial to you, always take those over moves towards the top. You gain new pieces and have a better chance of getting a combo.
9. Usage of gold to unlock gates, nothing else
You should use your gold towards unlocking gates, not extra moves or other boosters that replenish on their own over time. It's a much better use of your gold and if you're keen on not spending real cash on in-app purchases, it's the wisest way to use it and keep you on track to do just that.
10. Lives cheat: Set your clock ahead
In case bugging is not liked by you or you are just downright impatient, there is a problem in Farm Heroes Saga, just like in Candy Crush, that lets you move your system clock ahead to replenish lives. Simply perform the following steps:
Farm Heroes Saga Time Cheat For Android: Settings -> Date & Time -> Set Automatic date & time Off -> Set Time -> Change Time To Two One Day To Get 5 More Lives
Farm Heroes Saga Time Cheat For IOS: Settings -> General -> Date & Time -> Set Automatic Off -> Set Date And Time -> Change Time To One Day Ahead To Get 5 More Lives
Pop into Farm Heroes Sage and your lives should replenish
Go back and change the time back
While launch the game again, you should still have five full lives. If you do not just keep setting your clock ahead and playing that way, just be aware sometimes when you set it back you'll see negative lives. Results may vary but setting it forward when you can't wait to play any longer always works.
