I can not get passed this level, the most frustrating level yet. Almost ready to give up.

bairnbr00n said...

Me too. Losing the will to live!

Don't give up on this level. Maybe it was luck, but I found it easy to make color bombs, wrapped candies and striped candies. By the 3rd game I won.

Focus on making on combinations that create bombs/explosions, but also on making combinations along the sides/bottom. Good luck! PM

bairnbr00n said...

I did it. I just kept making striped candies and carefully counting down to allow them to fall nex to each other. I never even thought about using wrapped and striped to clear the board fr more combinations.
Phew. Stick in there. B x

Ok after about 10 tries, i decided to just play the bottom right square...done!! this easily allowed the combos to be made and held till you could bring other combos down from the square above...just go slow I think you will find it works for you...I tried this once with success!!

Thank you, Anonymous! I did exactly what you said and worked the bottom right hand corner and it worked first time. Couldn't believe it. I thought surely I'd be on this level forever. :)

Amanda Sivey said...

This level is ridiculous. I can't get more than 3 striped candies together and I've been trying hard for the past 3 days! It's pure luck sometimes, and I honestly don't feel like playing this level anymore. I typically use boosters when I'm really stuck on a level for a long time, but that would be futile with this level as there aren't enough boosters to even help! Augh. I'm debating quitting this game....

Calbabyj said...

Someone mentioned making color bombs. How is that possible with in the limited space? I have made wrapped candies on occasion. I tried the suggestion of playing the bottom right corner but the set up has to be workable. I've even tried hitting the back button and resetting a new board when the bottom right has nothing going for it. I find this level tedious and boring and I've only gotten down to one remaining combo once! Any other suggestion are welcome. I've made it this far. I'm not giving up yet.

Best strategy:
Work the bottom right corner! I tried this too, and passed in just a few tries. :D

Anonymous said...

Oh my goodness... don't know how many lives I used on this one... But I finally made it! Working primarily from lower right corner was the best strategy as mentioned earlier.

Rita Uhl said...

Absolutely awful! The games where getting so fun until this one. I can't even get close. I almost got three matches a few times and that's as close as it gets. Ready to give up. I got this far. Wish there was a skip feature. Grrrrrrrrr

Polina said...

Not too bad as it looks first. Don't give up on this one. I agree it's not the most fun level, but it is doable. You will need luck and planning your moves, but you'll get there!

Anonymous said...

i'm not a purist that refuses to buy a booster but there are no boosters that will help you pass this game. i don't get frustrated easily and am not one who is unwilling to wait for my reward. my problem is that when i've spent weeeeeeeks on this with no foreseeable win in sight ... well, the fun just dries up. i don't even look forward to waking up and trying this level "again". i walked away for numerous days and went back today only to confirm that the fun is gone for me. bummer. there are so many more levels i would have liked to explore but i can't even buy my way there. so, so sad.

Shawn said...

Luck is very important here. On 5th try I managed to create 4 combos with 25 moves left, but I just couldn't make one more and failed!
Keep trying...

Shawn said...

Just finished it on the 6th try! Totally doable!

Mikey said...

keep focused on the bottom right...take your time so you don't miss opportunities for striped candies, don't panic over color bombs (plenty of time to clear them if needed). You made it this far, you've passed much more difficult levels, hang in there

Anonymous said...

Ugh, this level should be impossible enough without the bombs in the mix!! I'd love to work the bottom right if there were any moves to be made. And often enough the only available move is to use a stripe I was trying to save. Looks like I will be here awhile. Yeah, there were a couple of fun levels finally, till this..... LOL.

Anonymous said...

Exactly like all the others said. Work the bottom right. 5 tries.

Anonymous said...

When i see lots of comments i fear that the level is quite hard! I hope i can pass this in a few tries. - LEI

Anonymous said...

Simply do waht someone here says, just play in the right bottom corner, be careful with bombs and make striped candies when you see them in the other squares, i used this technique and solve this in 2 times.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the walkthrough videos and tips finished the level in about 10tries hehe!
Candies would fall from the top left box to lower left box to the top right box then to the lower right box.
Requirement: 5 striped + striped candy combo

*What I did was I made striped combos in the lower right box but in my every move i watch for striped opportunities in the other 3 boxes. Then when i get my striped candies i let it fall down until it is beside another striped candy. Do not depend on luck believe me it does not work here. If you have a combo formed use it right away because you will lose the opportunity if you wait.

*There are opportunities for wrapped candies but do not form it as it is not your requirement. Always form striped candies.

*Avoid accidentally blasting your carefully made striped candies. So do not place these candies beside candies of the same color. Because if it blasts you go back to square one.

*If you see bombs kill it as soon as possible before it jeopardizes your board. You can use the bombs to make striped candies.

*No boosters can help you in this level i have realized that.

Good luck everyone! Keep crushing! -LEI

RIGHT BOTTOM CORNER STRATEGY REALLY WORKS FOLKS !! After reading tips pointing me to this strategy in this blog I succeeded the very 1st time. That can't be just dumb luck.

Anonymous said...

I am still stuck, it's been over a week. Amazing that others make it sound easy and do-able, and do this or that but in my games I have no control and no options. I can't play the bottom corner when there are no moves. Often enough if a stripe is created it gets blown up anyway. IF I am doing fairly well to begin with, you can bet there will be a bomb that I have no moves to remove. So sick of this level. As people keep saying, when they're this difficult it really takes the fun out of the game. We shouldn't have to spend weeks or more on a level.

Anonymous said...

Have been trying this one working from the right hand side as suggested. Moves are few & far between to make striped combos & tend to get blown up not when you want them to. Will keep trying but certainly not as easy as you are led to believe by comments above unless you get some lucky moves.

Anonymous said...

Cannot play the right hand side if there are no moves apart from basically the top left & the moves are not coming through? This might turn out to be a stinker after all !! Fingers crossed it is not :)

Anonymous said...

Hate levels that rely more on the luck of what is coming down than anything else. This is one of them :(

Anonymous said...

Followed all the tips, must have tried over 100 times with no luck, sometimes no combos to use at all. This level sucks!!! no fun at all!!!!

Anonymous said...

Thought this game could not get any worse after level 350 but here it is. Not fun when you are basically relying on a lucky board to get you through. I spend ages trying to set up striped moves only to have them blown up by dropping candy. Time & time again it happens. Very frustrating!!! Almost time to delete this game.

Anonymous said...

Thanks very much to the posters about using the bottom right corner. You have to keep as many candies moving as possible. Watch for combo options everywhere and then move accordingly to match. If the bottom right clogs up use the top right. You might have to sacriifice a stripe to open up the bottom right if it is clogged but do it. If you keep everything moving a lot of times the bombs just explode themselves. This one is way easier than the games that need lots of wrapped candy combos. Those are back breakers. I will say this - I bought the stripe paintbrush 200 games ago and it has come in handy many times. Helped me get the 5th combo in this game with 6 moves left.

Anonymous said...

Can't get over some people always saying they're ready to give up just because of a difficult level... you're on level 356! You're got this far!

a7mad.3ezz said...

first try, for 4 combinations and 1 striped candy ,, well .. so i was 1 striped candy away from winning .. seemed too easy and i thought i'd check what other people thought .. you all disappoint me :P .. never give up hope, think a little you'll find it ridiculously easy :P

Anonymous said...

Oh My god!!tanks a lot king!!i triedmore than 500 times n wasted all boosters i bot..holy shit
king should close down tis game
damnnnn!!

Anonymous said...

It's rubbish being trying for months tried everything and they ain't getting no money out of me so game deleted!...

Ganesh Kumar Prabhakar said...

BOTTOM RIGHT, ABSOLUTELY!!

Thanks dear Anonymous for the bottom right strategy!! I was struck in this level for 3 days and finally finished it with 17 moves left.

dirty vegas said...

I have left a few comments but they have not been published ? why have this help page if our comments are not published ,how then do we expect to get help . To reach level 356 is no mean feat you could say we are dedicated candy crushers .In relation to this level ,I have been stuck now for a week !!!!! Just wondering if this level has a fault ,because I've tried everything that fellow posters have recommended but still can't get anywhere near to clearing ... help !!!!

Anonymous said...

I have tried these tips And they haven't worked for mr me after countless tries. My matches of stripes are also not always counting. This has happened several times. Most maddening level so far. I am ready to quit playing.

Victoria Warren said...

A few tries after posting the above comment, I passed the level. I coyld not just play fro bottom right quadrant. Have no clue how I passed this; the level is not just frustrating like others, it was maddening to me! Don't give up!

Anonymous said...

I read the countless tips on 'working the bottom right corner quadrant'... When doing that only, eventually you are left with no matches. Anything in the other three quadrants will not move anything to the bottom one if there are no matches. Have no idea how this type of strategy works.

Anonymous said...

Level 356...NO fun anymore! I am done. This level is riidiculou, NO skill involved...needed a reason to quit...have it now! A game should be fun, NOT total frustration and dumb!

Greggori said...

I passed this board once, and as soon as it got to the success screen and started my bonus (17 mixed left mind you) my phone died. the one time I just played without worrying about the stripes I just played and won them phone died. now I no longer want to play. every combo I set up gets exploded by the uncanny timing of 2 more of the same color falling on it... screw this game I'm going home

Anonymous said...

Hate to post frustration rather than a tip but I'm at my breaking point. Have tried the tips above with no luck. Boosters won't help. Why can't we at least get credit for stripes that explode automatically? This appears to be the level that will end my quest.

Joni said...

You really need to concentrate on the bottom right, but make stripes wherever you can. I got it after about 12 tries.

Anonymous said...

I just don't understand why they have to have this type of stupid levto. If we made it this far we evidentlyvhave the skills. Don't they realize making players get stuck for long periods of time on this type of level is not in their best interest especially if someone wanted to buy boosters can't because this type of level doesn't give you any options to do so. Mtaybe King should read these blots to see how stupid they really are.

Lenora Peary said...

Didn't think I would EVER pass this level, but using the strategy of only moving in the bottom right hand corner and making stripes where ever possible I passed with 8 moves left. :)

Anonymous said...

Thank you! I read these comments yesterday and finally got out of this God-forsaken level today. I agree with what most have said: requires too much luck, not a fun level, frustrating. I especially liked the comment "i don't even look forward to waking up and trying this level again." That's how I felt. Focusing on the bottom right while making stripes whenever you can was VERY HELPFUL. Thanks again.

Anonymous said...

I beat this level and it won't let me move on. Why?

Anonymous said...

I played this level probably close to 100 times, then decided to turn my phone sideways because it's helped me on previous levels. I got SO many striped candies! I passed the level on the first try with 10 moves left over. I suppose it could just be luck, but seems like to much of a coincidence so I suggest you give it a try our two of you're stuck.

Anonymous said...

Is so sick of this level. I beat it. It showed a check mark on the striped balls at the top. When I tried to move on later I was still on this level. I signed out and back in and that didn't help either. I updated and that didn't help. Thanks a bunch King. You should not have to beat a hard level twice.

Anonymous said...

Bottom right corner? That is bullshit, can´t work there all the time. This level is pure luck and nothing else. I managed 4 combos after 1 week playing, and that was pure luck. Avarage i get is 1-2 combos on this terrible level. It´s frustrating that the game is too hard att those higher levels. Why doesn´t KING understand that thousands of players quit playing at the too hard levels? But as usual, it is all about money, buying combos. Fuck KING and all my wasted money on this shit game!!

Ladilove said...

Beat this level after only a few days. Bottom right corner tip is useless. My suggestion is to make strips at every opportunity at work them to each other. Most of the time they end up together. Just keep trying, eventually you will match 5. Good luck!!

Sandya said...

Appreciate all the tips here, whichI'll keep trying. Not easy to make strip candy already AND bring them together before they explode through moving. A nasty level. Need good luck

Anonymous said...

Very confused by the consistent strategy quoted to focus on bottom right. Many times I have no opportunities in the bottom right which keeps me from moving striped candies the way I want to. I'll try it but I don't see how this will work...

Gamer said...

after a week and countles tries at this level, i finally read comments on here, and working on the bottom right box works! First time after reading the hints on here - Thank you

Anonymous said...

I am frustrated also. Have got 4 out of 5 a few times, but no cigar. Agree with bottom right helpful somewhat, I seem to get more stripe combos, but still cannot get past. In the same game I had 4 stripes in the bottom right and 3 in the top right, but had no moves to get them next to each other. Frustrating!

HexamGafferty said...

The pink lollypop hammer can be used to remove a candy and bring 2 stripes together. I had several hammers saved-up from free wheel spins and used them to make 2 of the 5 combos required to finish this level. I would still be playing this difficult level without the hammers. I you are so inclined you can pay to get them too. Hope this helps.

Anonymous said...

I can see where the lollipop hammers could come quite handy this level.. so I'm wondering if that's why candy crush just eradicated all my lollipop hammers before I started.

I had 15 saved up by the time I hit 356; I go into this level, now I don't have any.. go figure.

Another gem by king.. a level all based on luck meant to frustrate the player into using money

Anonymous said...

This is one of those levels that just makes you want to quit (as evidence by how many people I see on my list who've stopped here)

It's not a difficult level, it requires no strategy only luck

It's just flat out boring, probably the most boring level encountered in the entire game so far, yawwwn.

Bill. said...

Very tedious level. Took many attempts certainly need a lot of patience.

Anonymous said...

The level doesn't require patience, it requires King to remove it from the game. As the other person stated, it's flat out boring. There is nothing they can really do to make it even remotely interesting.

Anonymous said...

Ho hum... Booorrrinng! It's list time on why this level sucks:
Bombs. Hands up anyone here who hates 'em.
Patiently using moves to create stripes
Desperately trying to get them to sit next to each other
Watching in frustration as they randomly explode without giving you credit
Finally achieving (if you're lucky) four of the suckers and then running out of moves
Then realising it's such a pathetic excuse for "fun" that you just laugh at king who think that we will spend lots of money if they make enough crap levels.
Not. This is a free download so I'm not bloody likely to spend money,
Seems I'll just watch the pretty colours moving around, cos that's all this level really does.

For whatever reason, I had more luck playing on my phone (Android) than on Facebook. On Facebook, I tried three times and was lucky to get two stripe-stripe combos. On the phone, on my first try, I ran out of moves with one candy between the two stripes for my last combo. On the second try, I hit the surrender button when it was obvious that I could not clear a bomb. On the third try, success, I got the level. I don't know why this one is easier on the phone. I never thought about the right lower quadrant approach. Instead, I worked on the left side, and then used the right side to help manoevure stripes into position adjacent to each other. It worked for me, but the moves required some advanced planning so that the stripes become adjacent, and try to be careful when detonating a stripe combo not to set off other stripes if at all possible.

Anonymous said...

c/candycrush here.

Not through yet. I can see working the bottom right, or at least the right hand side, is a strategy as it generates more movement and a chance some stripes will spontaneously generate.
I have made 4 but no luck with 5 yet as my special candy tend to explode before I can use them.

I am only on here as someone mentioned lollipop hammers from the daily spin.
Good idea. But don't forget the RED HAND option either, where you can switch two candy.

I'll give it a week or two and if I can't do it on my own, the hand and the lollipop will swing into action.
Just pity I keep winning fish on the spin.


Anonymous said...

Thank you. I was stuck for weeks in this level. After I read your post and some commentaries I went back and I passed on the first tried with 3 stars and plenty moves left!!

Frustrated (Again) said...

You say play the bottom right corner, but in many games, I've been able to make 1 or 2 moves there, and then had no other moves in that quadrant for the rest of the game. I've even tried to mix stripes in other quadrants to clear a row in the bottom right, but it hasn't worked. Probably working on my 70th try on this level. What am I missing here ?

Anonymous said...

This level is not easy. I played a few hundred lives and finally used a hand to move the last striped candy on the last move.
Glad to be off this level. I did try using bottom right first but on the game I finally completed I played more on the left side . All depends on the board you get.

Anonymous said...

This level is friggin' impossible (and so, so boring!!!) - I don't even get close to 5 combos and I don't understand why, when one random combo happens and goes off, you don't get credit for it?? WTF!! Am ready to give away Candy Crush - this is no longer enjoyable - have been well over a month and hundreds and hundreds of lives - have also tried each and every one of the hints here - so, so ready to give up

Anonymous said...

I quit - after weeks and weeks and hundreds of lives, this level is IMPOSSIBLE. Even though I followed each and every tip and trick - no luck. Goodbye Candy Crush - I now get my life back!!
