This level is pointless. No way anybody is beating it unless the striped candies fall next to one another. You watch any video anywhere (like this one here), they all show the same thing.. striped candies perfectly falling next to one another.. yah right.

The odds of this happening in your game.. well.. put it this way..

Your more likely to get struck by lightning, bitten by a shark, and run over by a tank all in the same day.

Don't even bother until they fix this or remove it.

It can be completed (without boosters). You just have to really take your time, try to avoid releasing bombs too early (lest you end up watching them and not your matches) and avoid the temptation to take 5 in a row matches or wrapper matches which will appear all the time on this level. Many of the stripe matches do happen spontaneously, but they happen frequently, so don't worry. It was a frustrating level as stripes blow up easily, but it was nowhere near the worst level yet.

Came back after a month, level is still buggy, and the game still sucks. Doesn't matter whether you release bombs or not if stripes don't form. I played 78 games in a row where stripes never form. I've also played games where putting 2 stripes together didn't count the combo after creating the cross effect.

I've also had chocolate continually form despite breaking it each turn (when it should be spawning). I have striped candies self detonate (and shooting the wrong way). My favorite is my red vertical striped candy self detonating by itself by green and blue candies then shooting horizontally.

Sorry person above, the level is buggy as hell, and like the first person posted, there is no video anywhere you'll find of someone beating the level with the striped candies literally spontaneously falling beside one another. This is because of the self detonation problem.

It's not the worst level yet, but it's also a level where I have 93 people on my list that are stuck on it and left. Crap game is a crap game. King.com should be ashamed of themselves for churning out this piece of garbage.

I was really starting to think this level was impossible, too, but the trick really is to try to get all your stripes at the top so that the bombs don't start falling like the poster mentioned above. You get 15 moves once they start dropping, so try to wait until after you have a few.

Constantine Markellos said...

Thanks for the tip, didn't even know bombs were there until you told me (never saw on video). I was getting a lot of stripes. Also, can mix two wrapped to get a big explosion. Many times the game gives you striped, or set up for 1 move. Dean

Another challenging level! But doable. I thought this was a level that would do me in. I almost bought another try because I was one move away from winning multiple times...but I just continued trying.

First, break as much chocolate as possible, but avoid breaking candies in the bottom left & right sides. Once you do, the numbered candies fall and your time is limited (15 tries for each candy).

Try to stay up top as long as possible (again, to avoid the numbered candies from falling).

As chocolate falls, try to eliminate it...otherwise your board becomes too small to make the striped combinations you need.

Good luck!! PM

King.com suck, candy crush is an ok game, but levels like this are put in deliberately to make people pay :-(
I rekon the success rate on this level must be like 0.000001%

I am on this level now and have not paid a dime to play......they are all just luck of how they fall..........good luck all

After about 50 attempts I finally passed . The only advice is what the posters above said....try to make the stripes combo in the top half of the screen. But I agree that this level is buggy, I had stripes detonating for no reason loads of times, a line of 4 reds created a colour bomb instead of a stripe. This is another level that relies only on luck.

Anonymous said...

I made it after about 20 tries. The secret for me was not to stay on the top, but stay in the MIDDLE. Make every combo you can without touching those bottom left and bottom right squares under the Bomb Dropper. Force yourself to leave those squares alone even if it can make you a striped candy. Try not to involve them at all until you are at 15 moves left, then just ignore the damn things and make your combos. Normally I love color bombs but you seem to get more than average in this level and they don't necessarily help you... but once I combined it with a stripe and it gave me a new playing field and I got it with 2 moves left. Woohoo!

DeeDee Vannoy said...

I'll admit to buying boosters to get past hard levels in the past, but there isn't any booster, other than the time-extender on the bombs, that would come close to helping on this level. Only been on it a week, but I'm close to saying forget it, too frustrating when you have to rely solely on luck and not skill.

You are a bunch of pathetic losers!!! This level is not that difficult

Looks like this website has come of age, we have our 1st troll.

Well done sir

Anonymous said...

♥ Definitely not easy one. Took me many tries. Like the tip says, make striped on top without touching the bottom until you get down to 15 moves. It worked for me.

Candy Crush? More like Candy CRASH - I completed this level after 2 days only for the game to crash at the end and when I got back on it was still on level 266 - Grrrr! I think it's time to quit not wasting anymore of my life on this game, the Candy sucks, there must be a bug on this level.

Anonymous said...

lol, Have just watched the video after many frustrating games. Sorry but you just do NOT get boards anything like this!!!! I wish.

Amanda Sivey said...

This level is impossible. This game is no longer fun. I have spent A LOT of money on this game, and even on this level - it's all in vain. Even with all the boosters you cannot do this. All the videos beating this level is pure luck, that the candies fall the way they do, and make stripes... AUGH. And those dumb bombs. I think I'm done with this game... so sad to get so far...

Kevin Kawamura said...

I'm stuck on this level now for 1 day. Over 40 tries. The closest was 1 stripe combo short with 6 moves to go but the candies didn't want to cooperate.

Anonymous said...

passed it the first time i played at the top with 7 moves left. thanks much for the tips ^.^

Anonymous said...

There is definitely a bug in this level. It should really be fixed.

Anonymous said...

I followed the advice about keeping to the top and passed it within a few tries. I don't think there is a bug and buying boosters won't help with this level. You've just got to keep trying and you will get lucky. Thanks for the advice!!

porshacat said...

Did it straight away after reading this. Didn't know about the bomb droppers in the bottom of the board ! Stayed at the top and did it first time !

JR said...

Look, if this makes me a troll, fine.

But you all DO realize that there are people who have completed all the levels, right? And you DO understand that the previous fact proves there is NO impossible level, right?

So maybe, instead of indulging in whining suitable for 8-year-olds, just maybe you should use this forum to offer some ACTUAL help.

(Those who DID offer actual help, usually while proving that no level is impossible, thank you.)

JR said...

Oh ... by the way. As was mentioned earlier, once I concentrated on avoiding the activation of time bombs, I was through this within 4 tries.

Kris said...

Well said JR, and no, that does not make you a troll :) sadly, I am still stuck on this level after who knows how many tries. Even while staying at top and trying to avoid dropping bombs, the combos keep falling just in the right spot to make the bombs drop anyway. Arg. Ah well, keep trying right?

Muhammad Ali said...

I got gr8 help from one of the tips... According to that u shud stick to the top. And make as many combinations as possible from the top. Reason being if u go to the bottom the bombs start coming up. So, avoid bottom rows till u have 20 moves left. I did it and completed the level..... THANX ALL!!

Shawn said...

Beat this level with 22 moves left. It is not nowhere close to those hard levels at all!

Anonymous said...

This would have to be the worst level king have made. You wouldn't even waste your time spending money on this level as striped candies and wrapped candies blow up before you can even make a match...yes, they just randomly blow up even when no other colour the same as the striped candy are around your striped candy. As we see by the video above that has no bombs, king has now added the timed bombs. Now I know why only 2 of my friends are the only ones left playing this game.

Anonymous said...

sorry, I made a mistake on the post I wrote yesterday saying there were no bombs in the video above. On watching the video again, I noticed the bombs appear on the last few moves. Oh dear, I wish I could get a board like this one above. I love this game, however this level is really so frustrating and I'm about to quit !!

Dont give up, with the tips its doable 3 days of play and I got it.

Stop shingling guys. Sure this is a tough puzzle but who wants all easy screens. Take note of the tips they have helped me in many a tight spot. Concentrate on the top half!

Anonymous said...

I failed this level about 30 times....then I came to this blog. I read the posts...and staying at the top helped and I passed it in 2 tries. It's hard...but it's still doable.

Anonymous said...

Just completed after 10t tries. Tips about staying at the top are good. I ignored everything below the csntre line. It's not all luck either, previous levels should have taught you how to put striped candies together! Funny how when it gets tough all the whiners come out of the woodwork. Just try harder. It is definitely doable as many posts have attested to.

Anonymous said...

Stuck to the top but got bombs. Bought hammers and blew them up. Got the matches and won.

Anonymous said...

This took me two days but I finally did it, literally matching the last two stripes on my last move. The only way to to stick to the top to avoid releasing bombs until you're at 12 moves left. But it is do-able!

Anonymous said...

This level was giving me a lot of trouble until I read this guide. Take your time, don't make wrappers or chocolates, don't let the bombs out. I beat it the first game after reading this guide.

I did it! No booster, thanks for the tips! It helped

I have been stuck for way too long on this level. Have read the tips to no avail. I think it is time to say bye bye candy crush.

Thank you guys. I followed your suggestions and I was able to get my matches after 3 tries.

Glad I read this. Was ready to quit. First time after reading this, I cleared it. Yay!

I read this blog, kept to top and literally passed on first try after reading blog. Maybe luck but...

I quit!

Anonymous said...

This level is not that hard people. Keep to the top so you don't disturb the bomb droppers. Some of us actually enjoy the challenge of the harder levels. Unfortunately some of you are mentally challenged since you're inbred... but take a second and try to visualize what will happen when you move a candy. Pretty cool Huh?!

Andrea Ralston said...

Anonymous, you're an asshole. And I don't believe for one second that you actually beat this level, you sanctimonious jerk.

Anonymous said...

I agree I quit playing this level it is hopeless they put to many bombs in this game and too much chocolate and not enough time to get through the levels.

bengrimm99 said...

The bombs and chocolate are a nightmare combo, but this is a beatable level. As has been said, stick to working the top half (above the level of the bomb dispensers) for striped combos. In the end though it'll come down to some luck with the drops. Just be patient and don't spend any money on this level.

Anonymous said...

I read the comments about how to beat this level without looking at the video. On my first try, by staying at the top, I passed with one star but I PASSED - andf that's all I care about.

Anonymous said...

Me too! Read comments, stayed at top and passed on next try!

Anonymous said...

THANK YOU! I was ready to quit the game completely, I was never even close to completing this level but thought I would see if I could find some tips. I stuck to the top of the screen, even when the time bombs dropped at about 24 moves left (not sure what happened to trigger that), I was able to ignore them and swipe my last combo with one move left on the timer. No boosters required!

Anonymous said...

Not fun after getting to 266, I am not sure I'll keep trying.

Carreras said...

Obviously CC are running out of clever ideas throwing levels like this in with the best they can do being the bombs. Boring. The creativity seems to have gone and I now find its not a challenge and fun anymore, just more of the same bomb and chocolate rubbish. I'm at 266 so I hung in there but now signing off to a more challenging but fun app.

Anonymous said...

Stuck for two days than read tip. Only took two attempts and got through by staying at the top. I thought this level was impossible with or without boosters three days ago. Breezed through today with 18 moves left

Anonymous said...

This level seems tricky at first but you just need a strategy.

Try to make your stripes at the top, so as to not drop the time bombs. This is where skillful play comes in. If you know how to set things up you should be able to do it.

Don't get frustrated if things don't work out right away. It took me three time with the strategy before I beat it with moves left.

Eileen Christman said...

Worst level. Don't spend money on this level. I'm seriously thinking of NEVER PLAYING CANDY CRUSH again. Also telling friends not to play.
Luck is the only way you can win. Candies explode before you can match the swiped candies. Synaliru

Add me to the list of people who were stuck on this level until I read this blog. Second try and bingo with 16 moves left.

Anonymous said...

Seriously had been on this level and actually doing what the tips said without ever reading these tips. I stayed above the line, didnt give in to temptation, no bombs till I was at 15 moves etc etc and it didnt work. I came here and read about it and finally got it. Stay with these tips and dont give up! It cant be done. Also.. I havent spent a dime to get to this level. Patience and time is all Ive gien.

Anonymous said...

I stopped by for some advice on this one and got this level on the very next try. The secret is high and center. I also stacked striped in bottom half until 15 moves left. Really easy when you get the right idea about how to tackle this level

Anonymous said...

I actually passed this level with 3 stars with the recommendation of staying up top and in the middle. Also was ready to give up on CC. Forging ahead!

Anonymous said...

Was almost going to quit, then after reading the blog , it just fell into place, so I'm moving on, thanks everyone

Anonymous said...

Working the top and center did it for me. So much easier without worrying about the bombs. Once I had only 15 moves left I moved to the bottom and worked from there. Don't forget, those bombs are not frozen in place. You can move them.

Does anyone know why the lives that friends send disappear? No, I am not using them. Using tips from this blog and getting close to completing level.

Anonymous said...

Was easy...completed the level with 15 moves to spare... 318,000 points too. What's everyone been moaning for?! lol

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the tip on keeping you srtipped candies at the top half. Managed to finish this level easily once I knew the trick for this level after being stuck for over a week.

Bill. said...

Very tedious level have to stay in the top half, needs a lot of luck and careful control.

Sharon said...

omg! Thank you so much for the tips. After trying for days, every game I was getting freaked out by the bombs and would always miss one. First time I stayed only in the top I beat it. Didn't think it could be done but not one bomb dropped until my very last bomb. If I can do it so can you!

Sharon said...

Sorry that should have been not one bomb dropped until my very last move.

Anonymous said...

Was stuck on this level for almost a month. I was ready to give up but I came here and read some of the tips, went back to the game and after three tries I did it. Thanks so much

Henry said...

I appreciate everyone's helpful tips. Would not have gotten through this or some of the other ridiculous levels. I made it on the last move. Posters are correctly, stay above the bomb generators creating strips as long as possible. Avoid creating a choco sprinkle no matter how tempting, they'll likely start the bomb generation.

Anonymous said...

I was stuck on this for a long time, thanks to the tips here, stay in the top as long as possible.

Anonymous said...

after using the tips to stay to the top and middle sections..avoiding breaking the bombs long the side until I was to under 15 moves... I was able to beat the level in 3 tries. This after attempting 40-50 times without the tip. Thanks everyone!

Anonymous said...

Don't get what the fuss is about, finished this within an hour, and that is without staying on the top of the grid, even with the bombs in play its easily do-able. Just build lots of four in a row's and its a doddle. There have been many harder levels than this one.

Anonymous said...

Staying above the bombs as long as you can is an important strategy. Avoid making matches of wrapped candies or bombs unless they can be used very strategically toward the end of the game. The biggest problem was aligning the stripped pieces next to each other. They always seemed to be one square off. If you have any of the boosters that look like the hand, they allow you to switch two pieces that normally could not be switched. I used them to get the last two stripe matches.

Anonymous said...

This level wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. After reading some of these comments I finished it the first time with 21 lives left. The stripes do drop fairly frequently. Try to ignore the bombs at first & concentrate on doubling up on the stripes. You can do it!

Anonymous said...

Hey, thanks for the tips, after constantly getting blown up with bombs, I took your advise and only worked on the top. Got through it in one try!

Anonymous said...

No way to win! Was down to my last striped candy I needed and finally got it and it still showed I needed one! Thats not the first time this happened! Just about ready to quit!

Anonymous said...

JR - Sure, there are people who completed all level. But the trick is to do that without spending a dime on the game, or spamming all your Facebook friends with your progress.

I've completed level 266 before, but got it again as my third quest before being able to advance to level 366. The threshold is now 180K, forget how much it was when I originally was on that level. I got all 5 combos once, but fell short of points. Now that irked me.

One problem with this game is that once you fill all orders, but are still short on points. you fail even though you have moves left. You should be able to use your remaining moves to make the point threshold.

Level 266 YUCK...i hate it! To the pount where im ready to quit! As i said before i like some difficulty ...like a challenge but hate what seems impossible! And one thing for sure is who ever the little guy in the game that says "sweet". "Devine" and delicious! Well...him and i are definitely playing different games cause he says that while destroying all the striped candies im trying to get next to each other!
