Candy Crush Saga Level 290

Tips for level 290 Candy Crush Saga

You need some serious combos to clear this, there's a lot of cream and a lot of jelly to get through.
Colour bomb/stripe or even 2 colour bombs will help a lot, as well as lots of stripe/wrap combos.
Try to use the fish with another special if you can to cause more damage.
Sometimes working on just one side of the board is the best way to clear, but it all depends on the available moves.

Does this 1 have to be done on the actual computer not through the I phone app like level 285???

Anonymous said...

I was finally able to pass it on the computer. Same deal as 285, the fish don't clear the blocks below on your phone. :( Good luck!

iPad throws an extra color and fish don't gone after jelly under ice creams. Play on the PCM.

I actually managed to complete this on iPad. After about 30 tries though.

help..what is the strategy? I can't even get close. Do I need to save the fish?

Anonymous said...

Tried on iphone and PC - neither are working - come close on PC rarely but it's not happening. Fish do not seem to be eating the jelly underneath like they did in 285. Been at this a long time... wondering what's up?

I have played on phone and pc...probably 500 times...rarely even close! There has to be a strategy...help!

been at this level for a very long time. came very close on the android but the fish eat the candy and not the rocks. very frustrating

Alice said...

The only way I was able to make it through this was on the PC, and quite honestly, it was the first time I ever used the in-game boosts in the top right hand corner. I don't even know where these come from or why I had any, but I used two teeth and two lollipop hammers. I had been stuck here for weeks and that time was the closest I had gotten. I had six moves left and I knew I wouldn't make it without "cheating". It took a lot of stripe+package bombs and a couple of the match five bombs. (Sorry, I need to brush up on my CC lingo.)

for some reason my sony android levels end at 275, yet some of you on here are saying it goes past that level!

This must be the hardest level so far on Candy Crush Saga. Got big problems even getting close. What strategy should be used?

Update your android app in the Play Store, then you should get all the latest levels.

After several weeks, I finished this today on my Android phone. I've tried on laptop and phone probably hundreds of times and got close(ish) occasionally, then today just got lucky with the way the candy dropped - no big secret just keep trying!

Anonymous said...

two wrapped candies (bombs) together seem to make the most damage, more so than the other boosts!

phyllis said...

There is no problems with this stage. I cleared with my hp in less than 10 attempts. It just depends on your luck the way the candy drops. Best combo would be 2 wrap candies side by side, followed by wrap + stripes candy.

I'm having trouble with level 290, but I've passed all the other stages on my iphone. You must be able to pass 290 with perseverance and persistance

For people playing candy crush on their phones it seems that you must play level 285 with your phone turned sideways. when the screen rotates more of the board shows and the fish will attack the 3 jellies on the bottom as long as u break all the other jellies first and save the fish for last. after i figured that out I beat the level after 3 tries. I had been stuck there for almost a month. u don't have to play on a pc as long as your phone has that screen rotation feature. hope this helps.

Anonymous said...

It worked!!! Thank you! After a month of trying non stop, I turned my phone sideways and beat level 290 on the second try! :D

Anonymous said...

was stuck on level 290 for 2 days, finally figured out the key for clearing this level. try to form as many wrapped candy as possible and just keep crossing them. I did this 2 times and cleared the level with 3 stars and plenty of moves left.

Anonymous said...

Ive never played at all on the computer, just on my iphone, not even turned sideways, just regular..im up to 290 and now am stuck, it doesnt make any difference what operating system you play on so that isn't a strategy, like someone said, it's just a matter of how the candy falls..takes luck, very little "skill"

Constantine Markellos said...

It took a few lives but it is doable. If you are not getting jellies or breaking blocks almost every turn, then you will short in the end. I did mix two wrapped candies, had a good amount of color bombs mixed with striped candies. Then I was down to a few jellies and mixed a color bomb with a fish. 9 more fish showed up and cleared the remaining jellies. Not sure how that little fish survived the onslaught of the attack, but, it turned out to be the charm. I was prepared to lollipop if 1 or 2 jellies remained. I noticed something interesting, a striped candy clearing a row didn't clear the fish (it was unwrapped). Also, played on my android tablet, and the fish were not clearing cream. Candy On! Dean

yeah, sorry; I really appreciate your help but I'm not really following! Not that yours is the first post this has happened with, believe me - even with the CC lingo correct, sometimes it makes my head spin. i'll try to keep coming back to it to see if it makes more sense as I go on, though :) Thanks!

greesonl said...

bet it would if I had a phone to play on :)

greesonl said...

That is interesting - thanks!

Same here Alice! I didn't know I had all these booster things but it was proper easy with them, passed it first time!

Anonymous said...

This level is fun, but I'm getting tired of playing it!!! Argh! What does it take?!?! Does anyone have a clue how the fish work? They seem totally random.

Serene Woodland said...

Ok that's crazy. I rotated my phone and beat the level on the first try! Crossed two wrapped candies in the beginning and suddenly was getting color bombs and lots of stripes. Up to that point I was not even close to beating it.

Anonymous said...

Wow.. That is crazy!
Likewise I was having a terrible time on this level not even getting close.
Found this page googling in desperation and thought I'd try rotating.. Worked first time on my iPhone! :)

Anonymous said...

took a few tries, but kept trying and got it cleared after maybe 15 tries. got it cleared only took a couple of hours to get through it.
combos, combos, combos. color bomb with strip and wrapped with wrapped. did not use any booster, but yes this level can be a pain. I passed it on my android phone.

The fish clear jelly from squares picked at random.

Anonymous said...

♥ Whew that was hard. Finally got it after many tries on PC. Two wrapped candies helped a lot. Had that twice or so. Then the last two jellies were taken care of by the fish at the end. Try to save a fish at the end to get jellies that you can't get with your last moves.

1 star: 35000 points
2 stars: 70000 points
3 stars: 95000 points

i creared this one with one try but i was VERY Lucky colourbomb and striped does the most damage hope this helps

moonchild said...

Thank you everyone for the comments. I do not have a android phone but the tip on two wrapped does alot to damaged help cause they usually dont. Lol People comments help me alot more than just watching a video so again Thank you. Keep them coming!

Anonymous said...

Try it on PC! I played a few times on iPhone and iPad and only came close but did not clear all. I then tried it on my iMac.. Only took me once to finish all jellies!

Anonymous said...

Just a mean nasty level. Have tried spotted & striped combos and even had a couple of 3 x wrapped combos etc but only ever got close enough to have 5 jellies to clear. Finding it difficult to get these combos.3 days and hundreds of tries later, I really dislike this level. Have watched the video three times but will just have to wait for that "lucky" board, or give up eventually:(

Anonymous said...

Did it on my 3rd attempt...just used any combos I could until I'd got about half way down board then used 2 bombs together to clear half the board, the. I used a disco ball with stripe and that cleared all but 4 grey boxes (1 hit ones)...took every move to complete it though...gl guys and gals

Anonymous said...

After a few days i have moved on from this stage.
This involved a lot of luck..i formed about 6 chocolate donuts consecutively, i dont even know where they shot.
You really need to do major damage right from the start, you should have cleared half the board by the time you reach 30 moves.
Stripped + wrapped candy combo is good but wrapped + wrapped candy combo is the best! Good luck with this hellish stage everyone!

Anonymous said...

I never play with my phone turned sideways but I tried and it works! The fish swim faster and do a lot more damage when you hold it that way. Still took about 8 more tries but I finally had a good board and was able to clear all the jelly. :-)

Anonymous said...

this level took a lot of attempts, but certainly not the hardest level. the wrapped candy worked best - try to combine that with other wrapped when it's down near the jelly - color boms and stripe combo work well too to help clear the board

Leslie said...

I must say that this Candy Clouds Episodes was a great deal of fun! This last level was luck, as usual, but combining special candies was the answer. I didn't find that trying to save those fish was as asset.

Sydni Michael said...

I best 290 in 3 tried on my Android phone. My phone was sideways, don't know if that really matters. But within 8 moves got a wrapper and a wrapper right in the middle managed to get another wrapper and wrapper close to middle, 2 color bomb striped combos and two wrappers on their own in opposite corners. One being down in the little put in the bottom, had 10 moves left and got three stars at right 280000 points. Good luck! I was sure I was gonna be stuck on this one!

this level is a misery :(

Quite doable, on any platform. Mix color bombs with striped candies. And late in the game, there should be ample opportunities.

Haven't found a level yet that can't be beaten. Remember that next time you get frustrated.

I confess to dreading this level after reading how difficult some people were finding it. I was absolutely amazed that I completed it on my first attempt. I played it on my p.c and didn't try on my android. I managed it by creating and using as many combos as I could on the top half of the board (paired candies together were very effective but use any you get immediately and save colour bombs for the lower half of the board if you can) and on the lower half I used colour bombs with striped candies which made short work of the jellys right at the bottom. Maybe I just got lucky but it worked. good luck all.

njoyinglife said...

I played this level about 100+ times between the PC, iPad and iPhone. Eventually I won on the iPad. My strategy ws to get as many wrapped candies as possible, pairing two is the best move, but striped+wrapped is OK just don't waste moves to make that happen. I also used the chocolate, either with a wrapped candy, or to get rid of a candy I didn't want, for example, there was a yellow between two wrapped,, so I used the chocolate to get rid of the yellow so I could combine the wraps. Also, I had one move and one jelly left and luckily, chocolate, so i used it to burst the last jelly. Good luck

RobinS said...

I finally completed this level after days of trying. What worked for me was concentrating on one side of the board at a time and making sure that every move counted. Stay with the bottom and don't even bother with the top part at all unless that's the only place to make a move. This worked the first time trying this method.

Jamshed Jogezai said...

Did it . Took 15 tries on iOS .two wrapped candies together works well. The more u play the more the computer will throw easy moves !

Anonymous said...

Am getting bored with this now have tried all combinations and get really frustrated when I have only one jelly left, I have tried on iPad computer and phone grrrrrrr

Ddsharp33 said...

Turned my iPhone sideways...completed in 3 tries!

I've been on this level forever! Getting old! I've had all the combos, sometimes really good ones, and a lot of them, in one game, but still can't clear it. Getting bored.

Completed with the aid of the bonus wheel need lots of combinations and slice of luck. Keep bashing away and it can be solved.

c/candycrush here.
Excellent fun level, though really hard to get through. But hey, no chocolate rampaging out of control, no bombs & no timer. Just you and the jelly to clear.

first off, you are going to need combos and not just one or two, lots. Any special candy is good as it help to clear some layers, but try hard for a colour bomb/striped candy combo. And striped/wrapped candy combos. If you can get a few of these early in the piece and a bit of luck again at the end, you're through. Don't waste a wrapped candy by combining it with a fish-what a wimpy combo that was for me.

Bit of luck, lots of combos-it comes together eventually. Good luck.

Really strange. Been trapped on this level for ages. As previous comments say, laptop is easier, or seems more achievable than ipad iphone. Today I go on my laptop and hey presto, I'm on level 291 without passing 290 and without getting help to cross into next part of journey. On iPhone and iPad, I'm still on 290! Also Dreamworld is updated with new levels on laptop but not on iphone/pad despite me doing latest updates. Any idea what's going on?

Anonymous said...

i tried for awhile on my iPod touch to no avail, read all the comments above and tried on my mac with lots of wrapped candies and bombs and that did the trick! i found it much easier on the mac!

Anonymous said...

So bored with this - getting very close lots of times - so bit the bullet and paid for 5 more moves when I had only 3 jellies left - got through at last.

Anonymous said...

So annoyed with this level, mostly because I've twice got the pink donut in the bonus wheel but there is no place to claim them! After hitting claim prize then Play, the only bonus icons that show are the 3 star lives, the chocolate ball, and the lollipop hammer. Having the pink donut would really help on this level and I have two that are nowhere to be found. I'm on an ipad and I notice that on my laptop I can see all 6 different bonus wheel prizes. Does anyone know--- if on ipad does that reduce the number of bonus prizes u can claim

Anonymous said...

Argh! They say there's a level you get to that you can't pass and that will cause you to give up cc. Well 290 is mine. Nothing works, closest I've got is 4 jellies left. Have had all the combos listed in the tips , multiple times. This is one of the levels where if you can't anticipate next moves after the current one, you can't pass it. :(

anoniem said...

My god. This must be the one that is impossible to crack for me.
Have been on more difficult levels like 166 but those levels took me no more then a few days. This one is bugging me for over a week now.
Have played it about 100 times and one time i had 3 jelly's left. The other times i didn't get closer then at least 10 or more. You are dependent on how the moves fall down, you can think what you want that doens't help much.
