Candy Crush Saga Level 97: Hints and Tips



Aim for the  stripped+wrap combo immediately if the board is set properly, it'll get you around 10-15k points.. Colourbombs (or black cookie) won't give an ideal amount of points, even a wrapped candy alone will give a ton of points.







 If these options are not possible, aim to remove the timed bombs within 2-3 turns as they give a good amount of points. If you can get wrapped candies on the board, use them immediately as they grant quite a few points. The best combo for this level is 2 wrapped candies combined together, granting around 25-50k points depending if you get timed bombs with it in the process.

I can't beat level 97, so boring to play candy crush again and again...

Play using hints above until you get to the point that moves on bombs are less than total moves. Switch strategy to get as many specials on screen as possible. You don't need to explode them. They will continue to explode after game ends, adding to your score.

I had trouble with this level for a couple of days, trying all different options of the freckle cookie and the wrapped candy and was just getting no further than 80 000 points, on a good round, as soon as I read this I passed the level, thanks a bunch :)

Becca Hill said...

this level is so fustrating about to give the game up and not the only one so are alot of my friends

Jenny Liebenberg said...

It's the luck of the draw. I read comments and dreaded this level but got through on the third go, but I really battle with ingredients.

Parents said...

I had GREAT DIFFICULTY with this level and spent 6 dollars on extra lives so many failures but I won using this method: 1. I looked at a lot of 97 videos to learn as much as I could and viewed the comments; 2. When I realized that the bomb numbers were based on MOVES, not SECONDS, then I took time to carefully consider each move to maximize the opportunities the schematic had. So I won fairly quickly after that. Best to all [oh I never use boosters]

i've been stuck forever. i'm pretty good at this game, usually get 3 stars first try, but i'm beginning to think theres a glitch in the level or something. read all the tutorials hints tips videos EVERYTHING. CAN NOT GET IT! GRRRRRRR

Denise said...

stuck on this level forever, its not fun when your stuck for days, lost interest and moving on to a new game. And yes I read all of the comments and watched the video numerious times, its just ridiculous.

Emily said...

I passed this lever seemingly no problem on my name, but I am trying to help my husband pass and it seems impossible. I don't know how I did it the first time.

Anonymous said...

omg i was stuck on this FOREVER. i mean i essentially quit the game. i was just going over old levels trying to beat my own score. i couldn't find helpful tips anywhere. did these just get added recently? well anyway, found em last night, completed the level just now. INDISPENSABLE. thank you so much!!! i'm in shock.

Anonymous said...

I agree, and just posted. level 97 made me lose interest in the game. I did pay once, to start with a striped, but the level is SO boring, there is no enticement to even pay another 99 cents. going to look for a good game on my ipad. BORING...

Anonymous said...

the thing is King needs to smarten up if the have 250 more levels waiting, especially for people who end up paying $1 to get thru a level..so you get stuck on 97 and quit the game forever...no more 99 cents from me! If I have been on a level that I find challenging and most have been so far, but then I get tired of playing it and want to advance, I pay my dues and I am off to the next...duh...

you know that if you uninstall the app, and then reinstall it then you will have 5 full lives and be right where you were!!! This helps me sometimes!!

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the tip! It helped me finish this level in 10 tries (I think). I
aim for striped candies as much as possible & did not try to get rid
of the bombs early on

Why does the game end before I am out of moves?

No fun. Was enjoying it till the bombs. I quit

Just solved it after two days.

yaqin said...

i read alot of tips n tried quite a few. the most helpful ones is the striped n wrapped combo. i reached target with just two combo. it helps to choose your board n get as many bombs before u blast ur combo. i get 2stars....cudnt remember my score. dont get discourage!!

Anonymous said...

This level sucks. You just can't beat it. I've gotten to 96000 4 times. I am losing interest in this game. Don't get me wrong, I like a challenge but not an impossibility.

Unknown said...

This is the worst level. Its so boring and dumb. There is no time to aim for the stripped candies before the bombs blow . The level can end in 10 seconds. It also see like it's taking longer for lives to regenerate. Is that my imagination? I've enjoyed the challenge up to this point but this level just sucks!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm losing the will to live on this level !! Think we should all set a campaign up to lower the target to around 85,000! They can throw what they like at me but I'm not paying a penny, even to get out of this one :-)

Anonymous said...

for free levels, just manually set your phone to a few hours ahead (if it's the morning, just switch from AM to PM). quicker than uninstalling the app.

Anonymous said...

Hate this level. Like many have said...BORING...Really enjoy this game, but this level is making me want to stop playing all together. Can get as many lives as I want by clearing data, but still stuck. May have to find a new game...Any new game suggestions?

Anonymous said...

Been stuck for ages!
Wtf!

Unknown said...

I wonder if the developers of this game read these comments. If so 5his level sucks more than I can express. It feels impossible its boring and I am now never playing this game again. I understand the challenge but its boring and just impossible. Im done. Thanks for nothing

Anonymous said...

I have been stuck on it for a few days, annoyingly the bombs reappear too soon when you have cleared the board of them and wnat to concentrate on getting a good score. All moves are wasted in getting rid of bombs without have a reasonable opportunity of getting a good score. More moves would be better 25 is not enough. At least 40 would make it a more interesting game.

Mesquite Lady said...

It is impossible to get 100,000 points unless you buy the candy balls. The board is not big enough to allow you to gain big moves and fight bombs at the same time. Anyone who has passed this level, I believe, has purchased help.

Nancy said...

this level is seriously frustrating! It definitely helps to read the walkthrough guide before attempting it, otherwise you'll waste 5 lives in no time till you work out the timing of the bombs and the amount of points each combination gives. Still trying to beast it, hopefully it will happen now when I know that 2 wrapped candies work best for this level. Cheers

Anonymous said...

Wow! I've been trying to beat the ticking bombs for no reasin, thinking they count down by the second! They don't! The bombs lose one point each every time you make a move. I've been racing thru lives for no reason. Time to sit back & plan my moves without trying to beat the clock now...as soon as I get a few lives to play :)

Anonymous said...

to make me delete the game, they created this level for it. I hate this, after reaching 96 000 several times...sucks! loosing my interest, stupid level....f...ck the creater! huh!

Anonymous said...

LOL...that's the beauty of this game. It's challenging...for those who give up just because of this level is hilarious. It took me a long time to get through this level too, but I did it and that's my point. I'm now on level 135 and still loving Candy Crush!!!

Anonymous said...

Why don't you get the whole 25 moves. The bomb goes off at sometimes 3 or 4?

Anonymous said...

got it done after multiple tries.. got around 120k.. just keep trying.. my strategy was to only clear the bottom candies as the top one crushed when it comes down due to the arrangement.. the packet candy was really useful so look out for opportunity to create it

Anonymous said...

I beat this level one handed in only 3 moves.
Is this the best you got?
bring it!!!

You can also advance the time 3 hours on your phone, open the app, then change the time back to the correct time, and you will have 5 full lives.

rayrine said...

1) when you first see a new obstacle, come to this site and read about it before you play. 2)use the tip about restarting the game screen until you have a promising looking setup. I restarted maybe 8 times sometimes, but it helped a lot.
3) develop the mindset that"bombs are your friends". It seems odd but it's true. Unlike babysitting the chocolate to keep them under control, the bombs work in you favor if you keep an eye on them.
4) as noted, you can ignore bombs when you have less game moves than "bomb ticks" remaining. Use those last moves to set up you Sugarcrush to get you over the top. Try to have a few bombs left to boost the Sugarcrush score.
5) on thse tough/irritating levels, remember that there are 300+ levels. So this one MUST be solvable with enough patience. If you made it this far, you already have the skills.!

i hate this level!i lost my patience when i used all my life tht i keep from the 1st level until this level from my friend.Can u imagine how many life i get it?huh,its start annoyed me!

Anonymous said...

I know plenty of people who have passed this level without help; it took me a couple tries but it is definitely not impossible. You have to realize what gets the most points. Eliminate 2/3 bombs in 1 move if possible; that gets you the biggest amount of points. As the tips on this page say, aim for wrapped+striped candy combos and use it when you can get 1 or more bomb. The wrapped candies alone can destroy more than 1 bomb at a time as well. There's no need to waste moves using up special candies since they'll be set off when your moves are up anyway.

THANK YOU!!!! I have been stuck on this forEVER and after reading your tips, I passed it on the first try! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! God, that was getting ridiculous, lol.

crushingcandies said...

You need to eliminate bombs before their timer reaches zero.. every bomb you eliminate gives you 3000.. besides, striped candies in the middle of the board give you many points!

Anonymous said...

Was stuck on this level for a few weeks. just played it without really paying attention to my score because i thought i was going to lose anyways. I ended up getting 145k and being the number 1 in my friends lol!

Anonymous said...

Use colour bombs against colours with 1 or more time bombs and that also have a lot of candy on that same colour. For example, switching a colour bomb with a green candy, that has at least 10, and 2 time bombs of the same colour will help you pass this level like a piece of cake. Easy 50-100k points or even more depending on your match.

This level is a joke now with that method.

I have been trying to pass this level for SOOO long and my mom has been helping me , lol but we are getting so frustrated because of how ridiculous it is! It's impossible to get 100,000 points when stupid bombs keep coming! I'm surprised no one has complained Until NOW because I'm sick and tired of this ! Fix the game or I quit!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I can't open level 97. I know I need three lives and I keep sending requests but none are connecting to this level. I don't want to pay to continue.

Kaye said...

I'm only getting 3 moves per turn and then get knocked off????How to fix???
Thanks

Bill. said...

Second attempt on phone keep bombs under control then combinations.

CandyCrushRules said...

The tricks in this level is to remove bombs before their timer reaches zero. Every bomb you take away gives you 3000 points. So, make striped candies in the middle of the board give you more points!

 We all know that King is in the business of making money. We all know the game is rigged to make you spend money (Lvl 65, Lvl 140, Dreamworld 101). We all have seen the owl “happen” to fall off for no reason on candy breaks, the needle slow down to a snail’s pace on the jackpot just to find that extra “momentum” to go to the next section on the wheel. I believe in a fair game not rigged for people to spend their hard earned money on it. Let me help everyone stick it to King and maybe a fair, reasonable game will happen. This is what you do......
 You just go into your phone setting... Scroll down and look for (Time and Date) Change your date 1 day head... Then go open Candy Crush, you will have 5 new lives. BUT do not play the game yet. Close Candy Crush, and go back to your setting and reset the date back to the original today's date....Very Important!!!
Then go back to Candy Crush and play the game. You can do this as many times per day as you like. Always open CC and make sure there's 5 news lives... BUT ALWAYS remember to go back and reset the date BEFORE you play the game. IF you don't the "minute ticker" on CC will turn in days, and weeks, and months, maybe longer. (YOU don't want this to happen)
ALWAYS reset your Time and date before you play CC......
This can also be done on an iPad, Smart phones, and IPhones, and other small hand held computer devices. BUT not a P.C.

Curt Crusher said...

The key on this level is to take the bombs out as quick as possible. This will give you more points then a basic combo, but you are still going to need some special candies to Beat Candy Crush Level 97. Just focus on destroying the bombs then make special candies when you can. A nice striped/wrapped combo can work wonders.
