Wow, I thought Level 135 was a nightmare, but this level is also causing me huge problems. I have managed to get all the combos twice, but cannot get enough points to pass this level. Has anyone got any tips on this as I truly can't see how it's done.

Thanks
Helen

On the video it looks like once you get the last combo in place try to use the rest of your moves to gain points before hititng the combo. This is the level I have been on the longest and am finding myself playing new games because this isnt fun anymore.

I feel the same as above. I know it can be done but so far, not by me. Can get 2 of the 3 then run out of moves. No fun.

♥ I've completed it twice but failed to meet the points!! 1st time 41,000 and 2nd time 35,000. Third time is the charm! 64,000. Best way to get the points is to collect all the orders early on and have some moves left to turn them into stripes for points at the end. I had like 9 moves left. That helped.

if you collect the orders early you wont have enough points. I've completed this like 5 times but can't get enough points, sucks big time!!!

Spend a dollar or two and get the color bomb. I did and I cleared the level on the first try.

Anonymos that posted at 12.06 pm..if you completed your orders early you should have had heaps of moves to reach your points..i don't quite understand how u don't. I had 11 left and it automatically played moves..perhaps I had enough combos on board that gave me a good score. good luck

Been on level 169 for 3 weeks. Had all three combos at least 10 times but never enough points. Once got 44,200 but usuually only get 25,000. Does clearing the jelly at the edge help or not?

Games is designed to make money.
Imagine how hard it would be 100 levels from now.
Does anyone think that they can get there for free?

Really, isn't it difficult enough to get all of the combos without scoring 45,000 points. This level has taken all of the fun out of the game. I don't play nearly as often and don't en joy it at all.

I reached this level last evening and by midnight I was well annoyed and was about to chuck it all in. Got the 3 combos but not the score!

Tonight, I watched a YouTube video on this level and I noticed their score when they got all 3 combos it was about 20,000 with 10 moves still to go!

I figured that if my score wasn't 20,000 approx. with 10moves left I'd bail out and restart.

So that is what I did and it worked.

In response to anonymous comment of July 23 @12:53am -yes it is possible to clear this level without paying!

Finally got it after countless lives. I finally drew a board where I could get the two harder combos early, then lined up the two stripes near the bottom, then made a couple more moves, the launched the last combo with 4 moves to go. It exploded enough individual stripes to put me over the points minimum.

just finished tis level with 8 moves to spare , IMO this level can be won easily if you just slow down and pre-plan where the drops are gonna happen the more you rush the faster you burn through your moves i sat down and just planned for a good while before every move and it worked like a charm

II have played this level so many times I lost count. I have many times completed all 3 orders and never have made the minimum points required to move to next level. I am very frustrated at this level and finding myself more and more not wanting to play.

Anonymous said...

Someone needs to explain to me how to get enough points WHEN THE GAME TAKES OVER AFTER YOU GET THE LAST COMBO! It does not let you do it yourself! It just uses up whatever moves you have left with no input from the player. I am also tired of hearing this level is easy. It isn't. Honestly people stop and think what you are saying to already frustrated players. And to the braggarts - really was that necessary? And to the people who purchase - anyone can pass that way so who cares if you moved on. Clearly you couldn't do it on your own.

In response to the person asking if you can get this far & farther. ...
Yes...I haven't and won't spend a penny on this game.
... If you need/want more lives for free....
1. If you're playing on your cell, open a game on another device such as your tablet, lap-top or computer. Just use a different name & request as much as you like. I get bored after 10-ish.
2. Make a "ghost" FB page & request away.
Hope that helps.

This is sherri here and I got to the level yesterday and let me give you the honest run down. First the good news. No bombs in this game. And the game will spontaneously generate a few striped candy or whatever for you. Ok, that's the good news over.In one of my first 5 games, I managed to make the whole 3 combos, but I was about 25,000 short of the required score. And that was my best game so far. I've come close with the combos a couple of other times, but the real killer is getting that score. My worst game has been 4,000 points and no combos and you need 45,000 to get through.
On each side of the game are those white cream squares holding back the rampaging chocolate. You might think, as I did, you can hold it at bay. Give up the thought, Unlike other levels just before it,where it can be hard to pop it, in this game it melts away like summer snowflakes as the tiles cascade. Someone here said do the combos first then concentrate on building up the score. We all would if we could, but we can't, that's why we're here!
I think this game will need a bit of luck with what tiles you are dealt as well as strategy.

Yep you can def get thru this game without paying, i havent paid a dime.. I wouldnt want to, there isnt any fun in that. Of course i could get thru them with a bunch of cheats, anyone could. And yessss you do the combos first and THEN rack up points. You get 2 combos out of the way, then try to set up ur last combo at the bottom. BEFORE actually mixing the last combo, rack up points else where on the screen, CAREFULLY, to not disturb ur last combo waiting to take play. Make sure to mix that last combo before you use ur last move!! Whew... Rocket science lol and no its not going to be easy or simple... Good luck!

I've been playing this level for three days and I can't even collect all the orders... I keep "running out of moves" and the board will shuffle about 2-3 times per game and I'm not able to make any combos until the last 5 moves. Anyone else have this problem?? I'm really getting bad setups!

Anonymous said...

I played this level a few hundred times without ever really getting that close to success. Then, suddenly, the stars aligned and I won handily, with 12 moves left to spare. Persistence is key with this level, based upon my experience...

rmartin77 said...

Oh so all I need to do is get all 3 combos the first part of the game and then I'll have a ton of moves left to get my score. Why didn't I think of that? I always just tried to get all 3 combos just sometime during the game. I'll go right back to the game and knock those pesky little combos or in 6 or 7 moves then see if I can't score enough. Didn't realize it was that simple. TPIC.

Goodbye Candy Crush. 169 is the level I bail at. It's taken too long, and whilst I'm sure it is possible to do it - it's gone way past the point of being fun any more, so I'm gone.

Thanks for the game 'King', but you'll have to sucker somebody else for your dollars. Hideous level

This level is pure hell. I can't even get two of the necessary orders in time, much less the points. Quite often when I am setting up a combo, something happens and wrecks it. Even more frustrating, on one try, a striped/striped combo I made and swiped was not recognized by the game.

Anonymous said...

Actually, I finally made this level of "pure hell" (I meant to say "pure evil"--I should edit before I post). It was around the twenty-fifth try when I got it, playing on the tablet. Luck was definitely involved as the sparkle candy just formed and I got it adjacent to a striped candy. I got that and the striped/striped combo and then with four moves left, wrapped and striped candies were adjacent. I had 25,000 or so points at this point in the try, and was worried about what others were saying about getting the orders but not the points. I was also worried about losing my combo as I tried a few moves to set up striped candies and the like. I decided to take no chances and just swipe the combo. That completed the orders, and then the game on autopilot gave me 40,000 points, so I finished around 65,000. At least I got this level of pure hell.

Bye bye, just deleted this game. Not fun anymore.

I play the game for my husband and myself. We are both on 169. I have played for WEEKS now. I finally got all the matches and didn't have enough points nor any more moves. Feed up time to quit. Now I will have my life back.

Anonymous said...

I've been playing daily for the past two months. Have managed to complete the orders several times but always with not enough points. Once I've completed the orders the game takes over so there is no way I can control what is happening. Beginning to get bored with the whole situation....

Good bye Candy Crush !!

You just have to keep trying. The combinations will come think carefully before each move. Start a new game if no possibility of winning. There are much harder levels ahead.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS A LOT HARDER BASED ON WHAT THE COMMENTS HERE SAY…LET ME SAY IM NOT TRYING TO BRAG OR THAT IM SMARTER…I JUST THINK THAT IF YOU AIM FOR CREATING THE STRIPED CANDY THE COMBOS COME ALL THE TIME..AND DONT WORRY ABOUT USING THE ONE CANDY YOU JUST MADE, IF YOU HAVE TO USE IT DO IT, ANOTHER WILL COME. JUST AIM AT MAKING THE DESIRED CANDY ,KEEP MAKING COMBOS AND YOU WILL REACH THE MINIMUM POINTS!!!

I quit candy crush because of this level. Too bad for the king company because they were making a lot of money off me in those small increments that you don't realize add up to so much. And I was fine to pay because of the entertainment value of it. I was their dream customer. But I guess they are already making so much money, it doesn't matter. I'm off to find another candy crush-like game.

Anonymous said...

Toughest level so far. Waiting on some lucky drops. Otherwise, besides paying, can't see how it will happen.

Anonymous said...

I've played this level for 2.5weeks now. Since I get sooo frustrated playing this level, I go to Dreamworld and play there, but I am now done playing Dreamworld. (Wish they create more levels there asap). So I tried playing this level again and back to feeling so frustrated and annoyed!!! I can only get 2 of the required combos.. My brain is tired thinking for this level. UGH!!! Like others, I think I will give up this whole Candy Crush game. 1 more week and that's it for me. Bejeweled, here I come... LOL.

Anonymous said...

I worked at this level aggressively for a week and finally beat it. I didn't pay for extra moves, I beat it on my own. Definitely more luck than skill required on this one. To those who are still stuck, my only advice is that u must have patience. Lots of it.

Anonymous said...

I thought no way too! Impossible! I finally got it after numerous tries. I think the trick is to use your stripe combos as much as you can to create lots of movement and a lotta luck. Hang in there, the next game is simple as a reward.

Have tried this enough times, just what I needed to move on to other better games.

I love games. That said.. I like to feel that I have a chance to win. I have been on this level for three weeks. Every day. It is pure luck and I'm not that lucky. I also am the perfect customer for this game and they have lost me now. I went one week without ever seeing a speckled ball. Bye bye.

Anonymous said...

Got this as a quest, and need to get 60,000pts. Impossible. Can only make it to the 30,000's. Got all combos 4 times. Whats up with this? Tired of playing over and over and not meeting score required. Needs to be fixed. Ready to quit.

Connie Cox said...

Level 169 is impossible for me. If it can be beat I need to know before I give it up completely. I never knew a game would be so stressful.

Anonymous said...

Skill doesn't really come into play here (pun intended). It's just chance - if you keep at it long enough you will eventually get a board that lets you win. Happened on many other levels as well. I suspect that they count the number of times you played and the number of times you rated the level "boring" and let you move on before you get too frustrated - hoping that you will spend money at some point. I most certainly will not!

Anonymous said...

Been on this level for 2 months now. I've gotten the orders twice, but not the points. This is definitely a level of 99.999999% luck. If you don't get the candies to fall just right, you have NO CHANCE to get both the orders and points. End of month, I'm done with Candy Crush!! I know some luck in always going to be involved, but this is just ridiculous - I do not need this aggrevation.

Anonymous said...

Three times I have managed to collect all the orders, each time I waited until the last move to make the final combination. Three times I have failed to make the required score. King have lost the plot, games are supposed to be fun and engaging, not stressful and soul destroying. Time to fine a new way to relax, one things for sure I will never waste my time on a King game again...

I am in level 215 and got this level as a quest. Really impossible. Only luck can pass on this level. No calculations and ideas will work. Got the combos for 4 times but not the score. The combos also not coming easily. Scores for moves are also very low. Only 30000 is possible to score. Getting frustrated and decided to quit the game

Anonymous said...

I'm like the others. Wanted to play this game for fun. Not fun anymore. They need to make this game to move you on after x number of tries. When fun is no longer fun, time to quit!! Bye bye
