Candy Crush Saga Level 140: Hints and Tips

Cookies Tips for Level 140
Forget about the colours you need and just concentrate on making combos!
Stripe/wrap will clear loads of candies allowing more to fall.
Colour bombs, either alone or with another "special" candy will also bring down loads more.
If you can't switch a colour bomb with a stripe or wrap, look for the colour with most on the board, even if it isn't one of the colours you need. The more you remove, whatever colour, the more will fall down including the ones you need.
If you have trouble making colour bombs follow the ADVANCED TACTICS from our star player!

More tips below.

Your best bet is the colorbomb + stripe combo, as it will continually wreck candy, as well as bring down more. The trick to this level is to make the candy fall into a combo, as breaking them normally will not be enough to get through the level. The stripe + wrap is another nice combo to get you out of "no more moves" bust.

                         



The level also has tons of opportunities where you can create a wide variety of combos. Use this to your advantage, as this is the key to beating this level.

Claire said...

Really fed up... Paid 1.99 for the mystery helper and it doesn't work. Did it twice too.....
Can't find anyway of contact King to complain either.
Also noticed that it doesn't alway register a the moves too. I love this game as I have to use my brain but not happy when it doesn't work properly.

The sad thing about it Claire is that the game is more a game of chance than it is thinking. You are at the mercy of what candy you get to start the game. Since this is random every time and not set, the game is really a game of chance.

It does no good to complain -- they don't care.. They got your money and that's it! I've complained before when I bought extras lives to complete level 65, beat the level but it didn't register... Sent at least 6 letters and got nothing back...

If your paying for it your addicted, step away from the computer. Sorry i work t hard for my money to waste it buying more moves. What a waste of money

VcToria said...

Just a quick polite comment: Not bragging just letting u all know that I am at level 140 [ a little stuck] but have never paid a dime for extra moves. I have gotten down to one piece of ice many times and still not bought. They are all passable.

However, lol I do wonder if u start to pay if they give u harder games so you will continue to pay?

The level goals on Facebook are sometimes different than on apps ... If u get stuck try switching devices it helped me out a lot.

I never paid any money for any levels..When I thought I would just quit and not play anymore I got through the level..I am now on level 140 and finding it very difficult..Came close once needing only one more candy to get rid of..If this continues I will probably just quit playing the game because it just takes the fun out of it and I definitely will never pay for any extra help.

barbara grant said...

Been on level 140 and really fed up but I will not be paying anything ! I too have been close 2 days ago , with 1 left to get and since then I have been no where near this level may be the one that makes me quit !

Anonymous said...

Where exactly does it say that paying for a perk will guarantee you finish the level? Unless you're paying to skip the level, which there isn't an option for, you have no grounds for complaint. Candy Crush is a game highly highly won by luck, rather than skill.

I will never pay one dime to play this game. I get stuck but keep at it. Right now I'm on Level 140 but so far 135 was the worse! I feel they make enough on advertising, they don't need my money.

Anonymous said...

I am also stuck at 140, I have not paid for anything extra. I will just keep trying.

Anonymous said...

Just beat level 140 today after 6 days. Have never paid anything. Just have to get lucky and get the moved you need. Be patient.

Anonymous said...

I thought 133 was difficult. I got it after many many tries and by luck. Now I'm at 140, it seems fun but really hard. I'll keep trying.

Andie MO said...

I played at least 10-12 times a day and spent over a month on level 65 but finally got it. I'm stuck on 140 now but it will come too eventually. I'm not buying butkus! lol!

Anonymous said...

I paid once for level 120 or something like this, I'm not very sure. I really regret cause before they used to give me extra life's if I would click in an ad but after I paid they never ever did I it again. So folks keep calm and never ever pay.

Just wondering why it doesnt count or reduce each match of three.

Happy Potter said...

most of my friends are stuck on level 140 including me! I've been stuck for weeks, I won't pay out for this game in any way, it's just not worth it. I'll try it for a couple more weeks and if I can't get passed 140 I'll look for a new game to lay.

140 sucks i just thru my tablet in the lake

Aaron Dean said...

This level is the most bs one yet... everyone is going on abiut 135? I thought that was easy compared to 140!! Help!!!!

t cain said...

Unlimited lives for android users that play connected with fb. Go to settings, then click on apps, find cansy crush app, clear data, open candy crush back up, connect with fb and there you go. Works everytime and only takes a second. You're welcime. :)

e143slime8 said...

t cain, what will happen to my current progress? It say's all data will be lost. Currently on level 140, DO NOT want to start at level 1.

Anonymous said...

If playing on I pad, go to settings, turn auto date off, and change the date...
All the lives you want...
Remember to switch back to auto time to do Facebook, etc...

Anonymous said...

I too stuck on level 140, but when people say they have never paid a cent... Surely you have to pay the 99 cents to move onto next round? I have never paid for extra moves etc, but thought it compulsory to pay for the next set of levels??

Abracadabra said...

@anonymous-nothing in this game is compulsory - not even getting to the next set of levels. Just ask your fb friends to send you a FREE ticket to get to the next level. Once you get 3 friends to send you a ticket, it will unlock the next set of levels. All for free.

Anonymous said...

You don't have to pay to unlock episodes or ask on fb. When you get to that point, just log out of fb and then go to the "station" where you can unlock more levels. There should now be an option to play quests to advance to the next level. The 5 lives rule still applies, but you can play until you pass the quest. The hitch is you can only complete one quest per 24 hours. So it takes 3 days to advance. A good test of how hooked you are, I guess! I just spend that time going back to replay levels that were fun or where I had a low score.

rayrine said...

Look at the tips for mobile users. You can restart all but the timed levels if you don't like the hand dealt. That makes a huge difference, plus it eats up some of the waiting time towards your next life! I do this over and over on some levels, especially with the bombs.

Anonymous said...

Never do what tcain says!! I did and I am back at Level 1 damn it

Anonymous said...

I am sorry, that wasn't true, once you hook up with Facebook it went back to Level 140, and you have 5 lives again

Anonymous said...

Anonymous said: to unlock episodes log out of Facebook and then go to the station where you can unlock more levels. What is that station? Where can I find it? I see nothing that offers me options to play quests.....

Anonymous said...

UNLIMITED LIVES AND QUEST DONE THAT DAY!!!!! Just do like the user above said... Go to settings and date and time, then set ur date up one whole day for quests when it says wait 24hrs. You will have 5 new lives. I get six when I go another day advance. Then auto set ur time back when u have ur lives. Do this for regular levels too, only you can just set it up about 4 hrs ahead. Make sue you go back to game first to see that u got ur lives then auto set back to current date/time.... Any questions reference me in a comment here by "slim lady".....:) ps 140 sucks that why we need this unlimited life info! Good luck!

Anonymous said...

slimlady I cannot find where you are talking about changing the time please explain again and where do I find this station they are talking about

I was given extra moves by FB friends and tried using them on level 140 but it never gave me extra moves. Tried twice and lost those extra moves because it didn't go past 45 moves. Anyone else have this problem?

Anonymous said...

Extra moves- I've found that you must click on the latest extra move given. I received 3 extra moves and clicked on the top one...got nothing, but when I click on the latest one given (at the bottom of all the gifts) it worked.

JeepNgirlSD said...

Omg! Level 140 took me only 3 try's after reading comments. It's all about combos. 4 in a row 5 in a row switching them all And work from the bottom first.
Good Luck!

I love this game! It's a game of skill. But, I think it's absolutely stupid to pay for ANYTHING to help you pass a level. I am on level 140 right now,and yes it is hard, but, I have never paid for NOTHING! These levels can be beat without boosters! As long as you have patience, anyone can beat this game! That's what happens to a lot of people. They get upset, and don't concentrate on the moves. You have to have a strategy. And, of course, luck! Good luck everyone! Have fun playing!

Anonymous said...

I have an iPad, and I never have to ask for lives. That's what I do, Slim Lady, I just go to general settings, then click, day and time, then click the date tab, not the time tab, put it up one day, go back in the game to make sure I got my lives, and then back to change the "set time automatically" tab back. Works every time. I hope King doesn't fix this glitch anytime soon!

Anonymous said...

Wow on level 140,also never paid a dime! Its a total game of chance. Here's a hint: you can reset your game without losing a life if you don't like your set up

Anonymous said...

Hate level 140! Been stuck on it now for over a week playing several times a day. Two ther people were behind me, noe one is almost twice as far up. Very frustrating and not fair. I like games but not when it makes u upset when you can't move up. Trying to b patient but not happy with 140 at all!

Anonymous said...

My problem is, I actually finished level 140 - twice. After the "sugar crush" thing I was given two options - continue or do it again. No need to say I chose to continue...
However, I ended up having to do level 140 again??!?!?

Anyone experienced the same and how do I get out of there??

Robin Elder said...

Like many of u I get extremely frustrated with many aspects of this game. I have never paid for lives, boosters, nothing. I work too hard for my paltry paycheck to throw it away to some faceless megacompany . if it's too aggravating walk away! Don't let this stupid addicting game cost you more money. I'm at level 140 and I'm grateful there's no greedy chocolate!bedioen

oh see since u passed LEVEL 140 TWICE do u think u cld HELP us slower ones on how u did it what combos do wee need to pass as u have so much mre intellect than us such inferior subjects

Anonymous said...

Don't be so rude Anonymous! The other Anonymous was just saying what happened - I think...

Anonymous said...

Brilliant advice thanks! Just completed the level, and got extra lives by changing time on the iPhone :-)

Anonymous said...

This took me a couple of days to complete, my tip to people stuck is not to only focus on getting the target colours,like I did on the 1st day as I found they soon dried up, so on the 2nd day my focus changed to include getting the specials from all colours and that really helps.

Im on level 140 and have never paid for anything on this game and i never will. I love this game and even though some level are frustrating they are all passable without having to pay for anything. This game is about 80% luck and 20% strategy...good luck!

Anonymous said...

I can't get passed level 140, so I ate 100 skillets and took a dump on my tablet. Color bomb!

Anonymous said...

This level 140 is really trying my patience. I don't know how anyone gets past this. I have used all the combos too. I may quit on this level if I don't accomplish in a couple more days.

Anonymous said...

It has taken me several weeks before on 2 or 3 of the other levels. I have been on this level for over a week. You definitely need patience and humor!!!

Anonymous said...

Truly hate this level.. am loosing interest in game.. there are other challenging levels as well.. but this is the most boring and plain.. its making me hate this game now... soon i ll stop playing.. the milestone here is just toooo high !!!

Okaipis said...

I FINALLY beat level 140, and had 11 moves left. This after 100s of games. I've never paid to play. Here's the strategy I ended up using. Sometimes it worked fairly well and sometimes you just get sucko hands.
Look for choc bomb possibilities first, then striped candy possibilities next (any color). When you get a choc bomb try to pair to a striped candy if you can do it in 2 or 3 plays (again, any color). If a striped candy isn't possible try to pair it with an order color (the one you have the most of if you can). Play orders from the bottom up. Keep your sense of humor, lol.

Totally HATE level 140!!! Been stuck here for a few months. This is no longer fun - just tried of never winning and moving ahead.

ROFL X^D HA HA HA HA
People pay $$$ for a free game
I'm at Lvl 140 & never paid $$$ to solve any of the other Lvl's & I'm playing on an iphone
The iphone view is different then the pc one,but the demo's still work if you watch them you can solve the Lvl's
Just think your at 140 & there is 500+ Lvl's of play
ROFL X^D HA HA HA HA
Don't see anyone playing up to Lvl 500 if they are unhappy playing the lower Lvl's
Yes I did hit some snags on the way to Lvl 140,but all I did was go online & search for hints to what I need to do to solve the Lvl I was on & that's it
I have seen in print where you could pay to skip a Lvl,but that's the lazy way out
Search for hints then use them you will solve the Lvl
Hint for 140 is try to get rid if the colors you don't need then more of the ones you do need will appear so you can make big combos that will help you get the colors you do need
I watched a demo & the demo showed Lvl 140 being completed & there was still 7 turns left
So just watch the demo's & you can solve the Lvl's

I would not pay for any level on candy crush I would rather work it out for myself or google it to find out what to do I just ask friends but then don't collect the lives given by friends until I have used the 5 lives from candy crush then collect what's given by friends

Anonymous said...

Been stuck on level 140 too. One thing I found useful was to pair colour bomb with on of the colours not on the order. This will give you more of the order candies. K. Few days off if you are frustrated

Britinboise said...

My candy numbers are not counting down in level 140 is this a known issue? Been stuck here a few months and have started playing Pappa Pear instead

Anonymous said...

Just persevere and eventually you will do it. I have finally cracked level 140 after 5 days and much frustration. I think I had just one candy bomb mixed with a stripe but also plenty of mixed striped and wrapped which in turn produced crazy amounts of cascading columns....I actually completed it on my very last go...Yep turn 45.
I have NEVER paid a penny and will always refuse to, although I can understand why some would in order to pass a particularly hard level....One thing I hate is the minimal level of skill needed....I have gone back to levels I have completed and still find them extremely difficult to complete.
Back to 140 Just keep on doing what you are doing...You will crack it evetually!! :)
