Candy Crush Saga Level 97.

Tips for level 97 Candy Crush Saga
The bombs don't countdown in real time but with the moves you make, so take your time, study the board before you make your moves. 
To detonate the bombs you need 2 of the same colour candies to match up or even better a combo to wipe them out.

Focus 
on getting special to explode, and try to make matches at the bottom, since that can cause multiple matches to cascade.
Bombs are worth 3000 each so the more you get the better, but combos are the answer, stripe/wraps will give a lot of points but colour bomb wrap will give more, also if you get a colour bomb, try to match it with another special, not just a normal candy...Save it until you get a stripe or wrap if possible. If that isn't possible use it to get rid of a bomb by taking out the same colour as the bomb..

Hate to just quit, but this level is doing my head in. Refuse to pay any money to buy things, but is it the only way to get past it??

Those levels are made so you will pay for add'l moves etc. The goal is just way too high, 80,000 would have been okay.

ive been here for weeks best was 91000

will only allow me do 8 moves then it says end gme even though i got another 17 moves??

You have to diffuse the bombs before they hit zero (watch their counters) your game will end prematurely. It says that much after you don't diffuse them in the recap of why your game ended.

I've developed these strategies so far:
Focus on the bombs because they are worth about 3000.
It seems there is a limit of about 3 bombs on the screen at a time, so keep crushing them.
Focus on the middle columns and crushing candies vertically. This seems to generate more combos as opposed to crushing horizontally.

Still can't beat this level DAMNIT!

on Level for many weeks. Tried your suggestion anonymous and still stuck... very frustrating. It appears as if you have to pay to continue!!

This level is crazy. I won't pay money because I'm frustrated. I quit the game because I'm frustrated!!

Ok stuck in this level 97 for 2.5 days .. I tried it all Re: candy combos & bombs. The only thing that worked for me was blowing up the bombs and watching for the stripped & chocolate combo to smash together when possible. And staying focused on the BOMBS! It worked!

How can you make it through level 97 when it closes out cus you can't match a blinking bomb! And you still have moves left! WHAT A WASTE OFF LIVES!

Anonymous said...

What a joke! The instruction video shows a game being played in 2mina. Your lucky if u get 30secs!!!

Anonymous said...

The video is for pc. Where it's easier to get lucky and point combos are worth more. Apparently challenging and impossible are ubiquitous.

The bombs don't count down by time, they count down as you make moves. If it says 8 then you have to destroy it in your next 8 moves. You have as much TIME as you need but not as many MOVES.

Anonymous said...

You have to set the date ahead one day, tgen go into the game (make sure life is full) then exit game to go set ur date back... Then your phone day/ time wont be messed up.

Frustrated me for a while too but just passed it thanks to some tactics i read here. Was getting 60000 to 70000 thousand pretty regular then started changing tactics. Firstly try to make vertical lines, better chance of combos. Secondly try to combine striped candy with the wrapped candy this can be a big points builder and finally try to leave as many special candies (whether they be striped, wrapped or the other one)on the board for after your last move. They can get you much needed points after final move.Doing this my scores started to get higher and got there in the end. Obviously there is a large element of luck involved in this game. So good luck hope this helps. P.S. dont forget those darn bombs.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing to clear the board? I still have plenty of moves but I'm doing some combination that ends the game and says "the bombs are getting ready to go off" then the board clears and the game ends. Thank you

Anonymous said...

Having the same problem as the person above. I emailed King who are the developers, but have had no response. VERY MADDENING! Maybe it's time to say bye to the game?

Anonymous said...

When it says"the bombs are getting ready to go off, it means that you had a bomb that counted down to"0".. They count down with moves, not time.so you have to posy attention to the bombs and when they get down to "1" you h ave to blow it up in order to keep playing.does that make sense? If its a green bomb you have to blow it up with like colors, like you would if it was a regular candy

this level is hard. I have tried every strategy and still cannot win.unbelievable.

Anonymous said...

my topscore is 186.000 try making wrapped and striped if than won,t work try colorbomb and you,ll win before you know it myself find the level easy

Anonymous said...

i bet the bomb went off

Anonymous said...

Why on level 97 the game quits even tho I have moves left... do not understand why or what is going on. Please give me some insight to what is going on

Anonymous said...

Probably because one of the bombs has run out of time and is about to go off - you HAVE to keep your eye on the bombs and the number of seconds inside them that you have left! Good luck. I'm having trouble with this one as well, but have read all the helpful comments and will persevere.

One day I thought I had to go poop. But I only had to go pee pee.

Andrés Sandoval said...

just kill bombs with the candy with all the colors (5 candies on row)...

John Denmark said...

Just keep trying. I recall this level was hard, and barely passed it with a couple of tousands in reserve only - after 50 lives or so.

Now i'm at 391 which is impossible to pass on my Android, so I went back and tried a few older levels including 97. Easily passed it 2 out of 3 attempts with 3 stars.

Anonymous said...

I totally agree, They make it so hard because they want you to buy the extra moves and other stuff. I'm about done with this game also because of thei stupid level.

Anonymous said...

One key to win level 97 is to use chocolate with bomb, it will destroy all same color candies as as if they are bombs, but this only works for pc version, iOS version has a bug with this level that can't make this happen

Anonymous said...

I achieved 100,000 but I still failed the level because I had a bomb on the board. So are there 2 requirements of reaching 100K plus no bombs on the board?

Anonymous said...

Got to 99,080 all most payed for it a few days later finally got there. Dont know how lot of mixing and luck, never want to play that level again.

DD Finlay said...

I finally passed 97 yay get the flags out have now officially posted it in the paper!! After 4 agonising days I just did it we tip try another level you find easy and can pass in one or two goes then go back to that bitch again and wipe it out worked for me twice on level 79 I found hard and one in the twentys I did it first go in all them after that its easy to get your 5 lives back again whenever you want :) good luck sugar crush are the best two words right now :)

Anonymous said...

Target the bombs Do the maths. 25 x 3160 = about 79k plus the credit for the normal candies... leaves a few double bomb kills required whether that is you deliberately making bomb-candy-bomb combos or just the screen doing a few free ones as it shuffles. The main prob on this screen is thinking you akready know the game and sacrificing your moves hunting for mega combos. Just kill a bomb a move and grab what else you can in passing. It will work out as per ghe math I showed you!

And smile... it's not like #97 is the first padlock game on level 111 is it now?

[actually it is! so better pucker up and get ready to do it twice. I had forgotten how by yhe second go at it but thankfully it is deffo my tip above as that saw me alright about second time I tried it insread of going for combos]

Thanks! Having been stuck on Level 97 for a while, I tried this technique, and was successful on my fourth attempt. And I didn't just fall over the line - I ended up with two stars.

I am stuck with level 97 and its been over a month. Today I scored 99960... Can u believe it????

Anonymous said...

I really dont understand this level at all. When it say that u have 23 moves u really dont, when it say that u have so many second they go by to fast. I feel I will be here forever on this board if I dont pass it. I may just have to uninstall this game because I refuse to spend any money on games just for fun.

Anonymous said...

I drew this level as a quest worth a target of 115000. I seriously got 113500 points with 0 lives remaining and nearly threw my phone across the room! I'm probably going to have to wait a few weeks for the quest target to drop down to a more feasible number, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna give any money to those King devils!

ha minh tin said...

I got over 200000 & I don't know when I pass this level?!! What happen? which condition to pass this level?

Anonymous said...

This level is total BS, as it exemplifies the way most crappy games are geared toward design AND NOT skill. This level makes is so obviously geared toward frustrating users to the point of spending money on extra lives or bombs, etc. Eventually, I will get passed this level WITHOUT spending extra money, and it will be frustrating, but it will be worth it! I WILL WIN DESPITE THEM! And I a WILL NOT lose a dime doing so! PATIENCE!

if your not very successful with this level, my advice to you is that you should put the phone down...and play tomorrow. I've learned that if i come back to a level with a fresh perspective, I always beat it within 2 or 3 tries. I got some of my pointers for this level at Best way to Beat Candy Crush Level 97
