This game needs a massive overhaul.

Example, this level in particular, this is what's happened so far:

- No fruit comes down at all
- Fruit hits the bottom but doesn't dicipate
- Special candies breaking apart for no reason, it always happens when you need to put them in combos. This happens ALL the time.

I made a video and ran it in slow motion, it's absolutely appauling what goes on. Special candies breaking apart before you can use them.

This game isn't random, it's built upon frustrating the player to spend money, plain and simple.

I got it after 6 tries, last move. It is difficult to hold on to the mystery candies. The end was just things falling into place. I was ready with a lollipop bcs I can see this one going on and on. Dean

This level is boring! Nothing special about it like some of the other levels. They must written by the same person. No fun!

♥ Took me 3 lives to get it. I was lucky in the moves and what was given. Mystery candies do help. Once the mystery candy ruined my game by giving me a jelly in an area I couldn't reach. Very difficult to get vertical candies on the sides. I relied on the correct matches to get them out.

The biggest problem with this level for me is that the fruit gets stuck in the corners where it is nearly impossible to get back out. The only way to avoid this is making sure that ones the fruit drops into the side tubes, that you don't let it get to the bottom of the tube. Do this by making moves above the drop zone, so the fruit will be forced to fall to the left or the right of the tubes. Hope this helps a little!

Impossible to get anywhere when special candies are detonated when they shouldn't be. This happens all the time. Latest example: had a red striped candy, and a yellow wrapped candy caddy-corner on the lower right. To the right of the red stripe and above the yellow wrapped was a red that I switched with the yellow wrapped to make a match of three reds. This shouldn't have detonated the stripe or wrapped (not even the cascade effect should have set them off), but should have left them intact side by side. Not a chance! They both detonated. This happens to me way too often! What the heck is going on?

Playing on the iphone5. Here us a thought CC makers instead of creating more games how about you fix the bugs and crashes in the existing games like level 242? And the others that people have commented on for all the devices of playing.
The candy doesn't drop down correctly in 242. And would it hurt you to start the game out with two fruits instead of one? Would it hurt you to drop a second fruit before the halfway mark of the game? We can't win if you won't give us the fruit to drop down.

Yes this game is free but King's intent when they developed the game was to sucker people to spend money! They are making a killing, believe me!

Finally passed this head wrecking level after being left with the fruit stuck at the bottom of the upper side many times. I broke a vertical stripped candy beside the fruit which released it and cleared it through the bottom, completing the level. Hope this helps

Luck needs to be on your side. After reading these comments, I was dreading this level. On my 2nd life I got very lucky when a wrapped candy and wheel appeared early in the game. That combo wiped out many candies and the board basically played by itself. I was stunned when I realized I had cleared the level. Good luck as that is definitely what you will need!

First time I played it, I got 3 ingredients down and thought-yah, this level won't be too hard. But I have been on it a while now and can't get close. Like others, I have found candies detonate when I don't expect them to. It is hard enough o get an ingredient down and out even when it is in the correct column, let alone dealing with bombs, chocolates and everything else. It's a hard level. And I can't even think of anything that would help except maybe a lollipop hammer if you only have one ingredient left near the bottom. Even multiple colour bombs & combinations won't necessarily do it.

I checked this blog for tips on level 242 after several losses.I agree w/the above comment,how CC bugs should be fixed instead of creating more levels. Playing at this high level, I'm not even at the half way point to reach the very end of this game, yet this problem still exists! I am going to watch the posted slow motion recorded game and try the wrapped candy & wheel combo. THANK YOU :-) If I pass w/o using any tips listed here on this level and others that follow, I'll be sure to pass it along. Tere

Wrapped plus striped help a lot. Detonate the mystery candles asap then careful control of the columns. Took me about fourty attempts. Difficult.

Took me a long while to finish this one. I started just quitting games when I saw the objects stuck on either side or center. In the end, it was just luck!

after reading all the comments i was thinking this was going to be really hard. I guess i lucked out because it only took about 10 tries! It does help if you can avoid hitting the ones with question marks, i got chocolate one time and that was a killer! good luck, every level is so different, but since people have leveled up you know they are do-able!!

WOW this takes persistence, a lot of special candies, try to let them drop to the bottom because once you finally work your fruit down there, it is always one spot from clearing the board, so you need the horizontal stripes at the bottom to clear your fruits. This level isn't impossible, as I did succeed, but it took about 19 lives for me.
