Easiest level on candy crush.

The easiest way to make the 1-star 11,000 points is to unleash the colorball on the first move and then do NOTHING! The explosion of the powerball when the time runs out will automatically give you at least 15,000 points, and possibly more color balls. Those will, in turn again give you about 15,000 points. I got more than 51,000 points by doing this. I have been working for months to try to get 2 stars, and can't get past 95,000 with multiple colorbombs x wrapped candies in the process. I don't know why they made 1 star to be 11,000 points and 2 stars to be 150,000 points. RIDICULOUS! . . Evelyn

Evelyn, I agree, I've been trying to get more than a one star for a while with no luck. Gotten as high as 103,000. The key seems to focus on the time bonuses. As long as the time keeps ticking you have a chance. Color bombs help to reach time bonuses out of reach, but combos are less important. They actually take too much time to complete.

For those trying to get 2 or 3 stars in this level or to pass the mystery quest which requires you to get 150,000 points (equivalent to getting 2 stars) and have iPhone this is your lucky day. After trying and trying to pass the mystery quest, being my top score the annoying quantity of 149,660, I came up with a method I like to call the Print Screen Method. Here's what you do: 1) Once the level starts and all candies fall into place do a Print Screen. You do this by clicking the hold button and the menu button at the same time or one after the other very quickly. 2) After doing the Print Screen, immediately click the menu button to get out of Candy Crush. This will freeze your game where you left and the clock will STOP. 3) Go to your photos and find your Print Screen. Now you can watch the board calmly and decide which is your best move without the pressure of time. 4) Go back to candy crush and do your move. Just take in mind that when you re-enter the game it takes a little bit of time to unfreeze, but don't worry, the clock won't continue ticking. 5) Once the move is done and candies stop breaking, you can either do a good move if you see one right away or do a Print Screen fast and repeat the process. The great advantage of this method is that you can see moves that otherwise you might easily miss with the pressure of time. With this method I could pass the mystery quest in about 3 tries with a high score of 193,360. I could have continued but I was just looking to pass it. I'm sure with this method you can get to 3 stars in a much easier way. You may be concerned that you may lose precious seconds in the process, but at most you may be losing like 1 or 2 seconds, and believe me it's worth it. If you choose to use this method, here's a tip when using color bombs: check which candies can you break with the color bomb, count each one and break the one that has more in the board. I don't know how other devices work, but if they can do a Print Screen in an easy way then you can use this method in those devices as well. Good luck! :)

Funky level. I wasn't quite paying attention when I started, then saw it was a timed level, then noticed I had just about no time left. I let the time run out so I could pay better attention in the next try ... And I beat the level with 1 star. Yep, easiest level on candy crush! - KL

Jesus, i lost too much time trying to take a picture of the screen each time and then returning. plus the way to hit a high score is not just to focus on making chocolate balls. a large part of the score is made up from cascading candies. i just got 3 stars with a score of 221,000 and it took me about 6 days to do it. the best way for me was to make little matches at the bottom center and pay attention to the 5+ candies that drop down but for the most part they take care of themselves as they fall. and if a chocolate ball happens to fall or is super easy to make then all the better. swear i only got like 4 chocolate balls on this one. good luck to anyone trying to get 3 stars here....it's a bitch and total luck. glad to move on to go to sleep now with that off my brain.

Level 297 used to be 15 seconds to get 11000 points. Now is 15 seconds to get 150000. Why you chnge it? You try to force people to pay?

Anonymous, the Print Screen Method works pretty well. It took you 6 days to achieve a score of 221,000, while I with my method could achieve a score of 193,360 in 15 minutes with the possibility of more if I wanted to. If the method didn't work for you is because you were not fast enough. You need to be fast in order for this method to work. The method shouldn't consume you a lot of time (2 seconds at most doing the whole process) and even if this is too much time wasted for you it doesn't matter because the method allows you to watch the board calmly and plan several moves ahead which will increase your chances of getting more points AND MORE TIME. Without this method you will need a lot of luck to earn 2 stars and even more luck to earn 3.

Oh dear. Trying to get to the final levels and they have put this as a quest and you need 150,000!! I don't mind a challenge (to get to level 550+) you have surmounted a few, but this one is just stupid.

OK on the Ipad there is a way to freeze the screen very quickly to see what to do next. Even with this option the most I have got is 149,780 (!!!!!) as you simply run out of time. So unless you are extremely lucky this is an impossible quest - as most of the tip sites say. Not even worth paying for extra goes (except maybe that one time 😱). So not even a good strategy by the game makers.... Maybe they just want us to stop which is fine by me.

I kept going back to this level and FINALLY got to 3 stars after 2 months of trying...I tried all the methods....basically it was a matter of getting enough time points to keep me going & chocolate balls

I found after playing this level for a couple of days trying to get 150,000 to get past the quest, suddenly the required score dropped to 142,500. So I moved my date forward on my phone by 5 months and the required score dropped down to 11,000. Got through straight away

Jesus,
You need A LOT of luck even with this method. My guess is you would have done it even without the screenshots, because you just got a 'lucky' board....unless you can tell me that you can do this in 15 minutes every time...as you claim.
Most often the shot just confirms what you ALREADY KNOW....that you're screwed and time is just going to run out...

I did that, and to my shock it worked! I changed the date back to current day, Moved onto the next level, played my remaining lives, then It came up with 525388 minutes until I could get my next life, basically a year! Which is what I'd rolled my date forward by :( so now if I want to play, I have to keep rolling my date foreward!

Quick note to the person above me, if you set the time forward enough to have 5 lives, you can change it back to the correct time and still have 5 lives to continue playing :)

That worked, thank you :)

I finally just got 3 stars after a very long time of trying this level. I figured out a away to freeze your screen with out having to take a pic of it all you do is double click your menu button and the time will freeze with still being able to view the screen good luck all please let me know if this works for you all.

For some nutty (self-imposed) reason, I have to get 3 stars on every level of all the King games I play, and I've been stuck on 2 stars for this one FOREVER. It's boring and I hate it. My top score is 154,680. I finally started googling it to see if I could find some tips online, but looks like you just have to get lucky. Sometimes I hate you, CCS.

Ha Anonymous, I thought I was the only one out there who had to get three stars before moving on. Thank you, my husband thinks I'm nuts, now I can show him I'm not alone. :D
