Just noticed if you watch the UTube results from more than one of these helps pages, they are all the SAME. I thought each person did his or her own work, but NO!! If you freeze the video and go back and forth, it is the same game on each one of these helps pages!! That seems very weird!! Did just one of you game guys complete the game and then copy from each other??
I'm not having these problems playing through Facebook on my Android tablet. It is making the combos fine.
These guys are just a bunch of complainers. I play on Facebook on my laptop and I haven't noticed any bugs at all. Playing this level and others that supposedly have bugs just fine. They probably just don't realize that if falling candies set off your special candies, they'll go off without you getting a chance to use them.
I have finished this in two days....love it.. now just waiting for tickets to take me over to the next level
oh, yeah!! I noticed this before - what is the deal with that? Pretty strange, for real!
This one is awful, I'm so sick of being stuck at this level. Can hardly stand to keep trying anymore. With some of these there's just so little hope of succeeding, can hardly even get close most of the time... becomes so monotonous.
This one is awful, I'm so sick of being stuck at this level. All the candy stripes bust when you finally manage to get matching wrapped candies with stripes it butst everything you and you have to start all over. First one I have ben stuck on. I do not give up. Kinda like the difficults of life. You just have to keep doing your best. But REALLY?! Than I rememeber it's just a game. LOL!!!
It's just a game but it WAS fun til level 245.......
Oh this level is so boring.. The earlier poster had it right when he said MONOTONOUS.. five of the same combos and so many bombs? I think this is where I'm gonna say adios....
can,t wait to be the scary levels 208 and 213 were pushovers to how hard can this one be?
this game crashed on me today just as i though i had got the last order. it froze. this is no good i have been on this one for days
game crashed again
There have been harder levels before this, strategy wise. I will say, however, that this one is very tedious because of all the bombs. Most of your moves are spent preventing them from exploding, which makes the level less fun and more of a chore. If you do manage to get a striped/wrapped candy combo, it wipes out most of the board, which usually gets rid of any other saved special candies you had beforehand. So yes, this one is difficult and boring. I have yet to pass it (day three now), and the closest I've gotten is three combos (and that was only one time).
I am so sick of this level. BORING.
I don't like any level that has so many bombs. I have a hard time ignoring them!
Now I even bought a cheat...still didn't pass..about to give up my favorite game. I will miss u candy crush
Stuck in thus level too, managed four combos once. It's the level that will make me quit!
So over this game. Some of the levels to this point have been hard, really hard. But this one is next to impossible. First off how in the world can one make 5 wrapper candies, and they happen to be right by stripped candies. Then the bombs don't help, and like others said, once you do make a correct match it wipes out most of your board so any other special candies you make get wiped out. I think this is where I say goodbye to my addiction. I was able to make 4 combos, once, but since that one, never more than 2-3. Good luck everyone. Peace out!
Phew, finally, took me about a week...
♥ Phew is right. Finally got it after many many lives. Toward the end, I kept getting 1 or 2 combos left to go and many times I forgot to watch the bomb and killed my game! It can be done, just keep trying! I focused on making the wrappers 100% and the timers. Then I create striped and try to match them up.
Cracked easily, probability of occurance and logic plays major role.
I just got 4 out of 5 with 9 moves left, and could not win. So far that is the best I've done. Terrible level!
Blow up anything and everything! Use color bombs right off, stripe to strip, blast away. Soon you'll your chances to make your wrap candy to match with the stripe ones. Doable level!!! Don't give up on it.
OMG SO close got 4 and I stuffed up midway making a mess I had to bomb it and clear board!! Ok getting close inspires me..I've only been on this level today..I will get it...I damn hope!!
4 times I got 4 combos, (posted above at 8.50 pm)... I plugged away..reckon it was 50 lives or more..but i got it in a couple of quiet hours....U just have to play it really slow. I needed one with 8 moves..lucky i had a choc candy, cleared one colour, made a wrapped candy and so lucky to make a stripe right above...2 moves to spare!! top score with my friends but only 2 stars..not that i cared about that..was a kinda fun level, very challenging and think I'll hv no trouble make wrapped candy ever again!!! DON'T GIVE UP..!!
Every time I get discouraged after hours and days of frustration, enough to come here to read comments and commiserate, I find someone who has done it!! I take a deep breath and try again. Usually within a few tries, I get it!! After about three more tries (about 303 total!), got this with TWENTY turns left over!!! Not lying. Poster above who said play slow was right! Plus it's tons of luck, and everyone knows that the Law of Attraction says that a positive attitude attracts good things, right? True in Candy Crush as well as life! Enjoy!!
Finally! 3 weeks playing and i just managed to get the five required combos. A few times I got four, two or three most of the time, and some even zero. Id say the trick is to try to make wrapped candies whenever you can as making striped ones is easier. Of course, getting them together is a different story, but with good luck and a bit of observation it will end up happening. Also, if you get a multi-colored ball use it to clear all candies of one color (don't pick one with wrapped or striped candies) this makes easier to create wrapped/striped candies with the leftover colors. Good luck!
I got 4 combos, iv been on two days and its doing and its doing my head in.
I totally agree with the majority of the comments on here. This level is the worse level yet. If you are lucky enough to line up a stripe and a wrap when you match them it clears the board of all the others you have sitting there. I hate the bombs. This is a boring level and it may be the end of my playing. I usually don't give up but I am not enjoying this level at all.
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?
I agree with everything that everyone was saying. Things exploding. I concentrated on one set of candies at a time and ignored where I could be making stripes until I aligned my matches. You do, however have to have a good start. I had two games in a row that I played all moves just trying to blow up bombs. Then the third try I got a wrapped and striped that just fell next to each other. Luck!
Not kidding here. I played over 200 times in a row. I got no work done. Didn't eat or shower. I was so stubborn to finish this level. Eventually I couldn't take it anymore and had to give up. I tried later that night and got through on the first try. This game is so frustrating but I am telling y'all to keep going. A win will come for you...eventually!!
Why when I break a wrapped with a stripe does it not count towards order? This has happened several times!
This was the most difficult level yet. Probably cost me 35-40 lives. Best tips I can give are: 1. If there is an immediate solution to the bomb in the center, don't go right after it. The game may be baiting you out of a wrapped candy solution. Look over the board hard. 2. After EVERY move, take your hand off the mouse! This will ensure you don't make a quick match that could kill a more valuable (wrapped) match. 3. When you get near the end with only a few moves left, stay alert. Just one wrapped/striped combo could create a wrapped or striped in its wake and you may get a quick finish. I can't stress taking your hand off the mouse after each move enough. This is a good idea for any non-timed level. Good luck!
Hi CandyCrushers, yes I agree this is one of the most difficult boards I've played (along with 65 & 208) . I've finally beat the board after a day of non stop playing. When you get a choc bomb get rid of it immediately. Focus on making wrapped candies & clearing the bombs. Striped candies are easy to make. Don't make a bunch of stripe candies because they will cause your board to explode unecessarily. Also, don't waste money on boosters. They won't help. If you're a gamer that spends $ The paint brush would be useful. Other than that save your dough. Pay close attention to the board. You WILL beat it eventually.
i agree this is one of the hardest levels to play. used about 30 or so lives getting nowhere. came on here reading tips and seeing that people have got through. went back and tried again. got through first game after. amazing. dont give up it is possible just have to be positive and wait for that lucky break
There should be a sympathy move where you get to move on after 100 tries.
King just lost any more of my money because this level is causing me to quit. It's tedious and no fun. Not very good marketing. Bye
Okay that's me I'm done what happened to this game being fun this is the most impossibly boring level ever I'm through with this stupid game
why,why,why do my wrapped candies keep exploding when they shouldn't ??? this is just such a frustrating level.I'm about to go into a depression playing this terrible level and sure wouldn't spend a cent when the candies blow up when they shouldn't.Been stuck far to long on this level !!!!
There is only one way to beat this level. After hundreds of games I finally got 4 combos. Then with 3 moves left I hammered twice to get a wrapped candy and then bought the stripe paintbrush. Either be prepared to pay or quit playing Candy Crush. Your choice.
It is such a shame CC is just out for the money. They thought they were being cute with this level. Problem is they made it to busy. Give us break. There is no need for chocolate, bombs, etc all in one level. Asking to much, give us more moves for this level please?
CC do you ever try the games you create before releasing them? Just a thought.
Past it after using two lollipop booster on the 5th try. It is a hard level and you need to be lucky to get the special candy turns into wrapped candy!
This level is very do-able! I read the comments here after a few tries and its true... focus on making the wrapped candy and the striped candies are easy to get. I got all five with 17 moves left. Also, using the chocolate speckled candy will help get you more wrapped candies. Good luck!
stuck in this level for three weeks now. playing worth ten lives/day and still won't get through. this level just sucks big time :(
My problem is I have a hard time visualizing how to make a wrapped candy. Obviously I have made it to this level so I know how to do it, the way my brain works makes it difficult to see the opportunity to make a wrapped candy. I love the game and the challenges.
This level is doing my head in - been full on for over a week now. I've got this far and I've no intention of buying anything to help me, but those bombs are just too much!!!! I know I'll keep going but this level is no fun. Got to four a few times now and my brother's done it so know it's 'do-able' but just too much going on. Rant over - back to it! :-)
It only took me three tries. Thank the candy crush gods.
This one is tough. Too many moves to get all wrapped candy and hope you don't inadvertently blow it up. Goodbye Crush fans...
Someone said to not use the chocolate bomb on this level. I disagree. I use the chocolate bomb with a regular candy to eliminate a color. This puts more candies of one color on the board making it easier to make your special candies. In fact, on my winning board I used that technique twice, I can usually make special candies all day long, but something happens when I need them on demand. Good Luck crushers...this level isn't too bad.
I'm getting sick and tired of this level!!! Everytime I play it it just frustrates me. I struggle to even make one combo sometimes and when i think I might just have created one, BAM! out of nowhere it just explodes and starts cascading all over the place and ruining all my other special candies!!!!!I have the feeling that it decides when it will let you win and when it won't, just like slot machines, in the hope that people will pay for lives and special gifts.All I can say is, if you're playing on your phone you can get as many lives as you want without having to pay a penny!
My advice: don't use the colored balls indiscriminately. Save them, because sometimes they're useful to eliminate a color when it stands between your combo and there are no matches for it nearby. Just beat this level after about a week, never thought I would. Again, it comes down to mostly chance.
I realize if you are here you don't like to buy stuff, but this level can break your back and take all the fun out of playing. What's the point of that? You pay for other entertainment, why not this too? The stripe paintbrush is expensive but believe me it will save your bacon down the road in multiple games that also go on forever. It is extremely powerful. After I bought it I started having a lot of fun at this again instead of frustration.
Was fun til level 245! Just so bored with this level and going to leave Candy Crush!
Don't give up. This level is one that requires your skill to allign with luck. It will work out . I am terrible at making wrapped candy. I just got lucky and now I am past this level. Yeah
just give up..
After many lives & much disgust I did get this level, I tired to follow all the different advise given by all the above people although at times in my disgust while cursing & just going crazy with mouse & blowing up everything I could especially those freakin bombs, I did stop n take a moment..... I did as someone mentioned take my hand off the mouse, looked at every move before using, blew up choc as soon as they came & after a few more games I got the FRIGGEN level, no way easy but the advice worked. Thanks all for leaving comments !!
I beat it. Dumb luck. A couple of the jelly beans turned out to be wrapped candies and making a striped candy isn't too hard. Also there weren't as many bombs that time. I did it in two days, not sure how many lives. Maybe 20 or so.
Not an enjoyable level to play -and there have been a number of levels like this so far. Where u just want to break something, when u have the 4 out of 5 and have used up all the turns.Two days and counting....patience in a big dose needed!
This was the hardest level to date...totally frustrating. Every time I had a wrapped candy and tried to maneuver the pieces, a cascade started which blew it up. The constant bombs didn't help much either. I finally lucked out after many lives and the game gave me perfect moves...I finished with 10 moves left. Whew.
I hate this level! Have been on it for weeks. Keep thinking soon I am going to get aboard that can fulfill the requirements. Things like wrapped candies just seem to disappear. Please give me a board that is manageable or I will have to find a new source of entertainment.I would by boosters but never even get close enough to make them useful!,
i guess im not the only one angry all day because of this level im going through all the emotions everyone else is going through. i thought i was the only one.this level is HARD. ill try everyones advise. i hope it works THANKS
I wish there was a way to just pass on a levelThis one really is not fun
This level has cured me from being addicted to this game....not fun anymore at all. I like a challenge but this one is impossible. NO MORE, i quit. Time to find a new game. Enjoy!
I had the same problems. I must have played 175 times. Thanks for your comments they encouraged me when I was about to quit. I slowed down and studied each turn looking for chances to make wraps. I burst the sprinkled jaw breaker whenever it showed up and hit the color candy that would help me to join groups of anothere color grouping together. I really don't know if this helped but I didn't play for 24 hrs. And the stripped and wraps didn't explode unexpectedly. Hope this helps to encourage others.
Hardest level....tedious now, it's been weeks even when you pay for more lives nothing!! Wish you could just move on...
I wholeheartedly agree with all of you! I HATE this level. So boring! There can be no strategy because you have no control over the pieces. They explode out of no where. This level only succeeds in weeding some of us out of buying helps. They never let you get close enough to use any.
This level is so boring and tedious - it may have cured me of my Candy Crush addiction. Each game takes so long to play because of the thought process that has to go into each move (and there's 50 moves). I refuse to pay to complete this. It has shown me what a huge time waster this game is.
this level does suck. ive been stuck for weeks. i am at the end of my rope and almost gave up. im there again at almost giving up. no fun anymore.
Thought I was going to be stuck on this level for weeks but in reality it was more like 3 or 4 days/30 games. This level is a pain in the arse! Best advice I can give is to concentrate on making wrapped candies as others have said. If there is nothing else on don't be afraid of making some striped ones though. Cascading candies causing chain reactions are a big problem. However I wouldn't be afraid to make multiple wrapped and striped candies - after all the more you have on the board the more chances there are of making combos. Just be uber careful or it can all go bang very easily! If you get a colour bomb then just combine it with a regular candy as there is nothing to gain on this level by mixing colour bombs with special candies. You also need a bit of luck...
Oh my God!!! I came on here hoping I would learn of a trick or perhaps be informed that there is a glitch. For all the people on here advising "strategies". I want to slap you in your face! Or better yet, the people bragging of how they passed it in a matter of 2 days... In the face! There is no strategy, just the luck of the draw! I'm not retarded and have gotten this far without the purchase of too many little "party favors" but pray tell, which strategy did you guys/gals use to prevent everything from just blowing up at random....oh....that didn't happen to you? Then there was no strategy, congratulations, you got lucky!
To the previous poster - look back over the comments and I think you will find several people passed the level shortly after coming to this page and using some of the strategies suggested - some on their very next game. Which clearly suggests this level is not purely down to luck although obviously there is an element of luck involved - the game would be boring otherwise...
lol you mugs just stumbled on this from getting advice, aim of the game is to concentrate on bombs, not candys, then once bomb is done, make a candy, DONT CONCENTRATE SO MUCH ON THE TIMED BOMBS.
Phew - managed it!A few ideas: When you start the level, unless you can make a wrapped candy with your first move, come out and go back in - you don't lose a life.Second, once you have a wrapped candy and are looking to get a striped one next to it, don't forget that there might be an easier wrapped one to get somewhere else on the grid.Third, kill any chocolate as soon as possible, but don't worry too much about the bombs until they are down at 5 or so - if you get a wrapped / stripe combo they will probably be cleared anyway.Finally, don't waste time making sprinkle candies on purpose. If you get one by accident, use it to clear a colour you aren't using to increase the chances of the special ones you need.Good luck!
This level was the hardest one so far. Take your time and focus on making wrapped candy. I got down to needing one several times but it still took me a long time to beat this level . . . it was worth it.
Im done with candy crush and I loved this game but this level is boring it shouldn't be so hard that it takes days to pass come on candy crush your loosing people..
I thought this level was impossible, then read some of the comments on here and completed it within 5 goes. Important things to bear in mind are: 1. Focus on making wrapped candy, 2. Look at all possible options before making a move, 3. Don't automatically remove a bomb with a simple move (especially the first move), check you can't make a wrapped candy instead. Also, use chocolate bombs to remove all of one colour to increase your chances of getting a wrapped candy combo. Good luck. Most importantly don't give up. This level is challenging but by no means impossible :-)
I agree with everyone else. This level is completely ridiculous. Every time I work to make a wrapped candy they explode when you move anything around them in an attempt to get a striped candy next to it. And when you do finally get a combo, it clears anything else you going on the board. It also seems like the cascades are excessive. I know I've made moves that shouldn't cause such a horrible chain reaction. I'm really annoyed at this point. I've thought other levels were hard, but this could be my stopping point.
Seriously...I play everyday, all day. At least 10 hrs. Yup I'm addicted but I don't work, and have a physical disability. Takes my mind of my probs and is fun and gives a small sense of accomplishment ...until level 245. I wondered why less and less of my friends have been giving lives, and I " give them a hand" stuck for 79, 90 159 days? They r not stuck. They quit. Because this level sucks wang. Too many bombs, you make a match and it zaps the whole board, not enough moves. If u though this would make ppl buy more moves, and bonus help. Ur wrong. After months, guess I'm finally getting back to life. Thank you for that. Deleting the app. For some of you "sauvAnts" who made it and those with sheer damn luck, yayyyy! The rest of us regular joes are quitting. This is the beginning of the death of Sugar Crush. PS KING GAMES...remember for every one of us that voices these probs and rakes the time to post. You have min 20 others who feel the same and just go quietly into that good night. Adios Hell level 245. Hello world of the living.
Getting 5 striped/wrapped combos is hard enough, without having dozens of bombs plus the chocolate as well. Lots of rounds I don't even make one combo, let alone five. And if you do manage to get a wrapped candy, odds are unless you can use it quick smart, it will detonate.Some levels, I just wish they would let us choose the degree of challenge. I would like the option to pick a one star game, maybe without bombs or only needing 2 combos, so I could move on.Let all the whizz bang players choose the 3 star, I need a one star and even then it would be a challenge.
We all know the surprise candies in this round aren't always good, there can be a chocolate or a bomb lurking under them, but I must have struck the daddy of bad ones recently. Not a chocolate, but a chocolate maker! No way it can be eliminated, it's there for the duration, churning out chocolate after chocolate.Needless to say, I am still on 245, probably will be for life, the way I am going.
I finally did get this level, but ended up cheating to do so. I followed the advice and considered every move and the consequences of every move. As far as I could tell, making a line of three candies of the same colour as an adjacent wrapped candy (but not in line) will cause the wrap to explode, so I had to avoid that. I spent a half hour on this, carefully making every move. With twelve moves to go, I got the fourth combo. Luck had been with me, as most of the time, I could position the central row and column of the clearing of candies to avoid other special candies I had made. I also only had to waste one move clearing a bomb. Others went in cascades or wrap/stripe detonations. The sprinkle-ball I got did nothing to help. Luck came again when a mystery candy revealed itself as a wrapped candy, but with two moves left, it was up one up and one to the right of a stripe. Thus, I gave in and did the cheat... I bought lollipop hammers. I only would do this when I had tried a level twenty or more times, I rarely came close (that certainly applied to this level) and the booster I bought guarantees that I will win the level. That happened here, as the hammer removed one candy, brought wrapped and striped together without blowing them up and then I made the merge and finally got the level. Thus, to defeat level 245, careful planning, always look for opportunities to make wrapped candies, don't worry too much about bombs unless the ticker is down to two or three, and accept that luck is definitely required--and maybe a paid booster too.
I've been on the level for ages, have accepted I might never make it any further.One tip though. Maybe I am the last to know this. But if you want time to consider a move and the bomb is ticking away, just take your hand right off the mouse completely. When there is no movement, the bomb time won't change and you'll have as long as you need to consider the next move.Not that it has helped me yet, mind you. But if there is any luck lurking, it'll give you a chance to see it.
OMG! Passed it! Was stuck here for days playing every moment I could. After making 4 matches I broke down and bought sucker hammers and only ended up needing one before a cascade happened that put a new stripe near my wrapper. Could not believe it. HINT: watch the board with every move. It took me about 25 minutes to play the board. Used one sprinkle ball to clear a candy and that was only partially successful as that color comes back fast. Don't give up! I almost did!
I got through. I am the one who commented on 15 Nov.I just decided to play the occasional game and gave up worrying. I don't know how I got through exactly. The cascades gave me some spontaneously generated matches. I wasn't taking time to consider each move or anything. But it got down to 3 or 4 more moves and 2 matches more to get. Almost clicked to abort the game but next move, 2 candies sprung up by themselves. Then just before the last move, same deal-2 spontaneous candies next to each other. Couldn't believe my eyes.So I'm through, but I didn't do it. maybe made one match on my own, out of the 5.You just have to be lucky and play a game to the end I think.
This level is giving me a headache, and is the least fun level yet. To get this far, and be subjected to this! I refuse to give them any more money, not that they give a shit! Why on earth don't they sell a PASS this ASSTASTIC Level power-up?
Have been on this level now for weeks - no longer any fun - just when I have everything lined up, set up - a massive explosion that destroys all my hard work. Got to 4 down, 1 to go ONCE - too frustrating, have started swearing at the game - time to quit and get my life back!!!
