I have used over 20 lives and never saw a screen like the demo. I refuse to pay!!!!!
well, I must have used 60 to 80 lives. The demo screen was a lot more than I ever saw. I did stop the chocolates in the beginning. Got my bombs out of the way. When all the other obstacles were gone, the extra 5 seconds kept flowing out. I was clearing the lower and upper right. It seems when candy starting flowing, many striped candies and 5 sec boosters came. And, I am absolutely terrible at timed levels. So, candy on!!
What is up with this level? It gives you nothing to play the game! All it does is shuffles the candy. Sometimes, it even reshuffles the shuffle. This level stinks........
The problem with this level is that it is no fun. Timed levels are bad enough but this one is just boring. You can tell right from the first screen whether you have a chance or not. So it's mostly luck.
Gee whiz, I want to know the secret of getting so many red candies falling like that. Certainly haven't seen that on my screens :)
Hmmm, every second move is a reshuffle.......pretty hard to win against that?
Been playing this level for a week now. It is just ridiculous and boring! It shuffles the candies constantly, losing time in the process. By the time you break through the bottom jellies your down to about 15 seconds left. I think the highest game I got was about 26,000, after playing it hundreds of times.
If you can get the bombs out of the way, right away, do it, but keep in mind that you are after points! Just keep an eye out in all squares for opportunities to make special candies. It took me 3 tries and I thought, at first, that I would be on this forever.
I must be an awful player, because I do exactly as you describe. I just can't get anyplace with this level. Might be time for a different game for me...:(
Played this level over 500 times! Highest game 27,400...not even close to the needed 30,000. I even have started recognizing some of the same losing games I've played over and over. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!!!!!!!
♥ Played about 10 times and I got it. Barely. 30,840. Didn't think it was that hard. Just had to kill the bombs first then make as many 4 matches as you can and grab the extra timers. It's mostly luck with the bombs but once you clear them, it can be done.
Ok! I got this level with 6 lives. I read all these comments after failing twice. I also watched video(no help there!) then went back and played. I ignored the chocolate! If I had a move in chocolate area if I had to take it then I did but I focused on getting bombs first then breaking the blocks so I could move more. I think it takes luck too because of all the reshuffles. Good luck.
agreed with above. Bombs first, then break the blocks. Ignore chocolate unless you have a forced match. Try to get combos and specials for points, but with luck you should knock it out. took about a dozen tries here.
I have been doing that for over a week now! I can't seem to get higher than 27,000 points. What gives?
Do King forget that older people play these games. The timed games are a real problem. Has anyone else been taken to Hospital due to to high heart rate trying to do the timed games. How long will it be before King is sued ? This level is impossible, giving up before I take a heart attack !!!
how do we get lives to play this game. we have to wait 2 hrs for more lives and I am not spending my money on this game because it is so frustrating. if it wasn't so frustrating I could play it for years live farmville, yoville,farmtown etc. don't mind spending money on a game you know wont frustrate me and I will play for a long time. I have 275 friend and none of them play this game anymore so I cant get them to send me lifes. think it's time to find another game.
I was stuck on this level for 3 weeks. Here is what worked for me:Clear out the bombs on the upper left first. Then clear out the right side and concentrate on matching threesomes on the right side upper and lower - especially lower. As pieces fall to fill in the missing gaps on the right, it will automatically collect extra points from the left side as matches are made from moving pieces.
I've got this level as a quest with a 40,000 target... What the...?
did you know notice every time there is a reshuffle it deducts 5 seconds off the time?
If I play on my laptop it takes away 5 seconds when I reshuffle. If I play on my phone it doesn't take away the time.
I've read everyone's comments, but here I am 5 weeks later and I'm still stuck on this damn level!!!I'm tired & ready to give up. I see no way of passing this level..So this is my LAST ditch effort for some help..
I also agree with the previous post. This is ridiculous!!!It's been over a month for me as well & I've just had enough!!
More often than not, the 5+ does not give you additional time. I had the same experience with loosing time on reshuffles - very frustrating.
Took me almost a week on the iphone. Clear bombs, don't worry about the chocolate, break through lower left window bottom and then try and match as many candies in upper right window to get the lucky cascading points as they fall through the left side windows. Matching candies further down from top where new candies fall seems to generate a lot of points or at least enough to beat this level.
Stuck for a week on this level. I see no end in sight. 22,000 was my highest score. I have tried everything. I've never seen the amount of combos the guy in the demo got. Never. I can only assume you either get lucky with your drops or you pay for boosters. Either way another F you by King.PFebes
With every shuffle I lose between 11 -46 seconds and my game ends with 3-5 seconds left on the clock. My high score has been 16,000. There's no way I can win.
I can't get close either with all the reshuffles. It's my third quest after level 185. No fair giving me 182 again. Plus the quest wants 40,000 points. Impossible.
This one has stumped me for longer than any previous ones. Maybe will be the one that makes me quit in frustration - I've tried all of the tricks, but have yet to get a half-decent fall in three days of trying (on desktop, so can't get more than 5 lives at a shot). It's just not worth the frustration when you can't even clear the bombs and just watch reshuffle after reshuffle after reshuffle, all costing precious seconds. And for whatever reason - no candy crush even when I have combos. 27,000 points as been as close as I can get.
Is it something with the iPad? I have ios7. I keep hitting the +5 candies but it's not adding any time. Sucks when 30+ seconds gets wasted with the reshuffles. I'm never going to hit 40000 on this level 182 quest.
same as everybody else, I'm getting fed up with this level :( highest score so far is 27800 haven't paid for anything so far, and don't intend to either... very frustrating :(
yay just done it !!! I put the above comment up yesterday, and just done it with a score of 35600 :) lots of luck I think, and managed to switch a striped with a wrapped candy in the bottom left square which really helped with the score. Good luck, it CAN be done :)
I took September 20's advice and didn't worry about chocolates. After over 200 frustrating tries, got through on first try.
Got it after about 20 tries, including three failed level scores in the 29,000 range. Even had 29,980 once!Reiterate, avoid the lower right square (unless you need make the last match there to reshuffle), explode the bombs first, then break the frosted things. Key to getting a good score is at least one wrapped + striped combo and many additional stripes and wrapped. Wrapped seem to give more points than striped. Also try for as many matches in the upper right as possible since that opens up cascading matches in the left two squares. You may need cascading matches to win.
Hmmm. Confused why some players have 30,000 while others have 40,000 as a goal. Any insights?I've been struggling with this one for a week and somehow got up to 34,000. However, I honestly can't figure out any strategy to top 40,000.
I've been stuck on level 182 for over a week now. I have tried everything from bombs first then the blocks at the bottom to eliminating the chocolate first then bombs then blocks but I still come up 2000 points short!
Im currently trying to 3 star this level my high score is 42000 but cant get the 55000 needed i find that if you can get rid of the chocolate straight away do it and hopefully still b able to get rid of bombs you defo need cascading candies to complete this level so having all 4 squares available is essential i hav a friend with highscore of 135,000 :/ no idea how they managed that. I regurlarly hit the 30000 mark by ensuring i get the choc and bombs 1st then hit the blocks in the bottom left you have much more chance when u can play with 4 squares and once all 4 squares are available, play as much in the bottom right for full cascade effect then when no more moves work on top right as so on
I did finally beat this level after several weeks of play. I did not bother with the chocolate. I think it was pure luck that got enough combos to boost the points and very few shuffles for once.
There is no way I can get through level 182, I am older and slower and there are no decent combinations to combine. I think it stinks that after trying 500. + times and to fail. I even spent money to get though it, so guess I delete and play more fun games. Too bad cause I really enjoyed the game.
I finally got through this level with 36,000, only to run into it the very next day as my next Mystery Quest challenge, only this time the score needed is 40k instead of 30k! I think i have used well over 100 lives in the last few days and can't even get close to the goal in two minutes. The reshuffles are frustrating and it is hard to get candy wrapper and stripe combos. For those who don't know, you can keep getting lives on your mobile device by going into settings, turning the clock off auto and manually setting it ahead one day. Then reenter CCrush. Dont start your game yet though...go back into settings and turn your clock back to auto. Now reenter and play CCrush with 5 new lives. Sounds like a lot of work, but with lots of practice, can be done in seconds. And trust me, I have had lots of practice with this Mystery Quest!
Good to read all of the comments. I have been playing probably for over a month now. This level is ridiculous! I have tried all different ways without any success! It is getting boring!
Again first attempt on pc.
Level 182 - Use a color bomb booster if you have one!Took me a while to beat this the first time, but this was the hardest level to get 3 stars - just couldn't do it. Then they came out with the wheel-spin and I won some extra color bombs. First move with a color bomb in level 182, I matched a bomb color, and boom I'm at 3 stars!
That's the best advice ever. Start with a color bomb and you'll get three stars with your first move. Not exactly challenging but who cares.
As soon as level 182 starts my pc gets very slow.Every mouseclick takes ages to do a) show and then b)switch.Reshuffling takes off time. +5 candies dont bring any plus at all.No fun at all! I think I'll stop wasting my time with candy crush.Other gamesite have nice games as well - and they do work!
I wish I had read these comments earlier! I have been struggling with this level for days now and used over 80 lives and yet its so simple! As the post above says, use one of the chocolate bombs won from the spin the wheel and match it with any colour that is the same as at least one bomb and you have over 30,000 points in 1 move! My final score was near 70,000 for this level doing it this way.
I am old. I do not have the speed or co-ordination to win these candy crush timed levels. My tip is simple: I just ask my young friend who plays candy crush to play any of the timed levels for me. He usually wins them after just a few attempts, whereas I would be stuck on these shitty, boring, timed levels for weeks and weeks!
Candy Crush Level 182 is impossible, I quit this game. I will not play it any more and will block the Candy Crush app on my facebook. I refuse to be bored any further by a game which is completely unwinnable. I also intend to report the owners of the Candy Crush website to that tv programme in UK called "Fake Britain", as the owners of the Candy Crush website need to be exposed as the fraudsters and scammers that they are.
I played level 182 like 100s of times at first it wanted me to get 30k points in 2 minutes but as I passed that level the same level showed up on the mystery quest this time it wanted me to get 40k in 2 minutes. This game frustrates me so much and I'm tired of the reshuffles, every time I make a move it reshuffles. I'm stuck on this very level for months now, I really need help and I don't think I will pass this level because it's too hard and if they want to increase the scores then they should also increase the timing as well instead of 2 minutes it should be at least 3 minutes.
Using a color bomb booster, I crushed 2 bombs and scored 88,000 points instantly. Finished with 103,000 points and 3 stars.
Spun the stupid wheel for about the 30th time, awarded the fish, thought oh wow, now maybe I can win! The stupid game did not give me any fish as a reward!!! Fed up!!! Stupid damned game!!! Still stuck after two months of trying off and on...I'm going to quit this is just a waste of time for me!!!!!!! Kill Kill Kill the game!!!
I'm trying this level again as a quest so now it's to be 40000 points not 30000! Bringing back bad memories of how long I stayed at the real 182 level.... I'm going to keep trying and I refuse to pay the now rather overinflated $1.29 as it's no guarantee anyway of a pass.
Get bomb from bonus wheel explode then let time run out.
This level is just annoying and boring. I got to over 29000 once purely out of luck. King provide the rather addictive illusion that there is skill involved in Candy Crush Saga, when in reality you can only work with what you're given, and as researchers have found, the odds are deliberately stacked against you to try to get your money.
