Ok so how the heck do you get past this level? It is by the far the most depressing level and any help would be great ;)
When I play this level, nothing comes through the little pink/blue portals. When you play, like in the first move you make, it makes all of the candies in that row under the pink portal shift down... the blue candy goes through the bottom portal and comes back out the top pink one. Mine does not do that. I get random candy coming from the pink portal and no shifting. Any suggestions???
Level 409.... my candies are not dropping thru the portals at all. Could not figure out the pattern until I watched a posted YouTube video. Then I realized the level was not working the way it should on my PC. Anyone else having this problem?
Yep. I am having the same problem. It is probably impossible to pass this level if they are not going to drop as the fruit gets stuck on a blue portal and is almost impossible to move out of that position with a sideways swap. I emailed the customer service and big surprise, they sent out a generic reply telling me to make sure that I have logged into facebook on my phone before playing even though I specifically stated I was playing on my PC since they don't even have these levels on the phone yet. Hopefully someone will be able to figure out what is going on and have a way to fix it. I know it's just a game, however it still is extremely frustrating!!!!
Damn it I'm having the EXACT same problem, Stupid portals don't work like they do in the youtube videos of people playing them. UGHHH so frustrated, I also emailed Customer Service, let's see if they catch on. So frustrated!
I have same issue! I'll e-mail them too!
Same here at Hong Kong!
As you are all playing on PC's maybe you need to clean your browsers? As you can see from the video and others, the level works.. Instructions on how to do that are on the page which you'll find on the right of this page...If you need them...
It isn't working my Mac either.
I tried cleaning up my browsers. Still not working.
cleaned my browser; loaded latest Adobe Flash; still not working!!
I have the same problem and I use a Mac.
i passed this level yesterday, magical!!!
still not working
STILL NOT WORKING!!!
is this just a way of getting extra money out of us? as we will get so close, after weeks of trying, and pay for the extra moves so to get the level out the way??? hhmmmmm i wonder.
I cannot think how a person could buy any boosters to pass this level if the ingredients will not move through the portals.
Only response I have received deals with levels 316, 130 and 76. They are completely missing the mark and not addressing the issue. I agree with the previous poster... no booster could be purchased to get you through this level with the portals not working unless they offer a "skip this level" booster. Extremely frustrating!!!!!!
I have cleaned browser, history, cache, cookies etc, restarted and the portals are still not working... I have no idea how to get technical help from King or if they are even aware of this problem!!!!
I went online and read about this level (Googled level 409 glitches portals)and read that there is 2 ways to do it : "The only way is if you have two the same colour above and one beside, allowing you to swap across. But as you have to do that twice on both sides it's a very difficult level." I also read a few posts about moving the nut and cherry to the sides and breaking the cakes asap - I tried the second method; got them moved to the sides where the green arrows were, broke the cakes and finished it the first try - lucky to have it line up good enough to do it but this is very do-able! Wish I would have researched this several days ago!!!!
I have the same problem, portals not working. I've been trying the side snaps followed by breaking the cakes. I actually managed to break the last cake on the last move, but the plunger didn't come and clear the screen for me so the fruit could fall, it just ended the game!!!I wish the portals would work the way they show in the video, that would make it so much easier to snap the fruit over. When it get stuck on the portal, it's almost impossible to line up a match!
same here..... if still havent fix this problem really hard to pass this level...
cleaned browser. still no good. the only time portal works is when horn blows and then fruit drops through but comes right back to hole and sits there. there evidently is an issue. we all got this far so we know how to play. this problem needs to be fixed.
Same issue as everyone else above. Very rare chance of passing unless King is able to fix portals.
I cleared all my browsers and installed the new adobe -- but still can't pass this darn level - it is really starting to irritate me.
It is do-able!!! I was stuck for ages due to the 'glitch'however, if you aim to break the cakes and swap the fruits over so they can fall at the same time, you will get there! It's hard but NOT impossible! Good luck!
I finally beat this stubborn level today after 2 weeks of trying. I managed to push the ingredients across with 30 moves left. PURE LUCK!
King have been informed of the problem of the portals not working so hopefully it will be fixed soon..
When I first got to this level the portals were working properly. They stopped working for me as well around the same time as people started posting. I got through with a lucky run as well but it would have been easier if the portals worked.
What does "clean your browser" mean, and does that work?
I play on PC, the portals only function when the cake is cleared but the fruit only reappear at the top of the column. After playing for 2 days, I am still struck but I believe it is playable, I have not read the video in this forum yet but would like to mention the following. I know exactly the routine of what to do but there is just not enough moves left unless luck struck. First of all, while keeping an eye on the opportunity to cut down the size of the cakes (not breaking them yet), one has to move the 2 fruits sideways twice for each until they are directly above the cakes. Once a cake is done, a fruit will be gone. It is possible and I i will prevail without any additional boosters.
I wrote the above. Thanks a lot whoever wrote method 2. I kept failing over 100+ attempts using my way. After reading the help, i pass 409 in one go using the second method. You must have read Edward de Bono's on lateral thinking by moving both nuts in one direction which I never dream of because there involve 2 extra sideway move.
I tried moving the cherry and acorn to the same side and only breaking that cake. This level was quite difficult! I found that if the cherry or acorn were not in line with the cake when it broke, it was going to be nearly impossible to move them in time. When I did pass it.... I moved the cherry to one side and broke the cake (freckle and striped candy) and then had the acorn on the other side ready to drop and was lucky to get a striped candy and a wrapped one. Advice on this would be to ensure the cherry/acorn are ready to drop when the cake breaks. Move them across as the priority.
beat it by moving the both fruits to one side then focusing on breaking one pizza instead of two
the glitch is still there, but I just managed to clear this level, by moving both fruit to the same sidevery hard level thanks to the glitch, keep trying and you should be able to do it
I've been stuck on this level for almost 2 months, with most of my spare time playing candy crush and probably going through 1000+ lives and still no result. After finally giving up with this game thinking they want me to spend money on boosters (which I refuse to do as I've not spent a penny through all 409 levels) I decided to google it and confirmed my initial thoughts on the portals not working. This has more then peeved me off as I can't play this level on Android as the levels stop at 395.Hope this gets sorted soon so I can blitz it and play on other levels after so bloody long!
Concentrate on breaking the cakes at the bottom. Then move the fruit over whenever an opportunity presents itself. Eventually you will pass this level.
I think this is finallly fixed. today everything worked differently and the nuts and cherries moved!
Finally finished this level. It took 2 days.My tips are as follows: Pay attention to combos that let you get the ingredients to the left or right side as quickly as possible. For example: Green GreenGreen RedLets you swipe the Red to the left. Be sure to get them to the far left or right two columns.Understand that you can NOT drop the ingredients until the pie/cakes are gone. It is best to not let the pie/cakes explode until the ingredients are in place.Work on clearing MoST of the pie/cake while moving the ingredients to the side. Once in place, explode the cakes.Good luck!! PM
My illustration above did not work. To move an ingredient to the left, have two of the same color in the two boxes above and another of the same color to the left .
From what I can see, the portals are working exactly as they should. The ingredients are supposed to stay in the same row repeatedly because there is no portal at the top for them to fall through into the rows that will put them in a position above the cakes. You HAVE to move them at least two spaces to the outside in order to get them where they will be brought all the way down when the cakes explode.
I started out trying to beat this level and eventually quit caring about playing candy crush because on this level I couldnt really find any booster that would help beat this level. I did however just beat it so I wanted to post my tips. I stopped focusing on getting the fruits to the sides first and just worried about clearing the boxes but with every move I made I still looked to see if I could move a fruit. I think this level is where you just have to wait for the right candies.
Hello,Yes, I finished this level only 2 daysGood choice for start the game, only 4 step, right already destroy, and concern to bring 2 nuts to right sideand win with 4 left moveNow, concern 410 levelAlready 20 lives, but not yet win, almost winbut iam sure, i can fisihed it soonKeep spirit
The tip of moving the cherry and hazelnut to one side, then only breaking one cake totally worked for me - it took me two days to pass this level. A chocolate sprinkle combined with a striped candy made me win this level with so many moves left I got three stars. Thank you!
Moving both fruits to one side worked for me after a week on this level, no boosters and 1 move left. It seems counter intuitive to move a fruit further away from the nearest portal, but with this move you can concentrate on breaking just one cake. It is difficult to break the remaining cake after one is broken. Passed this level after 1 week. Don't stress over it. You'll make it.
Can sometimes get the fruits lined up to one side. Just can't clear the cakes in time. Any suggestions?
You can play this level on android just go the settings-applications-candy crush-and update. You can also refresh your lives on android with the same steps but when you get to candy crush hit clear data. When you go back to the game it will ask you to connect with facebook and when you do you will be at the same level and your lives will be renewed.
Been trying above tips countless times. Can't even get close!!! Nothing will line up. Very frustrating. Ready to just quit this game!!! Not worth it!!
Moving the items sideway is much harder than breaking the cake. Is there any tips how to make it work?
This level is impossible with 50 moves. I have gotten a cherry to drop with acorn close by, but can't get it in the column to drop before I'm out of moves. Going for one side only. I keep trying for left, maybe I will try the right. It's driving me crazy!
Just completed moving two to the left and then two speckled bombs to finish off.
Just finished 409 - using the Ipod, Iphone Desktop & finally laptop and the wonderful suggestions - and PURE LUCK. Thanks folks! - Jan
Took me 2 goes to figure out the portal is a trap and the exit is at the bottom of the cake. I managed on the third try to move both fruits to one side and use combos to blew the cakes away.
Moving both fruits to the same side was the way I beat the level.i had 3 extra moves from a facebook friend, too which I needed. But I can see it is possible with no extra moves if you get lucky. Whenever I tried to do each fruit to a different side I never got close. Once you commit to one side you can just ignore the other side.
Level 409 make twowrapped candies n swipe at the bottom to clear the cake to a large extent
I wish people would say what they are using to play when they pass the level (I'm on a PC). This is the first level of Candy Crush I have absolutely hated. I get wrapped candies when trying to form a striped. I get random explosions even though I carefully noted everything in the vicinity. I like the larger screen, but if playing on a mobile device will help, I'll try.
This one has taken me a while, both on PC and android, but I finally did it with 14 moves left to spare. My best tips are to work early on moving both ingredients to one side and then focusing on that one side to break the cake. I had the most success clearing the cake when using wrapped/striped combos. Otherwise, it's just a bit of luck as to how the candies fall. But get the ingredients moved first.
Thanks you Anonymous 9/16/13 16:47, you posted right after my 16:02 post and gave me the hope to keep trying. I did finally did do it by moving the candies to one side, but a series of fortunate matches cleared my cake first which decided me on which way to move them.
This freaking level sucks!!???
I HATE this level. Not a great way to end this journey. It's hard, and I know not impossible, but this level frustrates and stresses me instead of relaxes me......blech
I passed this level ... Yay! Push both ingredients to one side to the columns with path way out, use combos of choco balls n stripped candies, or two wrapped just abv the cake will clear them all. When u push both ingred to one side dont bothr abt clearing the other side cake. Just focus on clearing the cake below ingred. B careful abt moves... Dont waste any...! Good luck!
Wow! Thought I had the tactics right - push each ingredient to its side and then clear the cakes. But within three tries of pushing both ingredients to *one* side and clearing just the one cake on that side, I had the level done. Nine moves to spare, three stars :D Thanks for the tip - seems obvious now!
I will give Jude's suggestion a try as I was thinking it might be easier to push both ingredients to one side and focus on one cake. I've gotten down one ingredient and one slice of cake but always run out of moves! I think my least favorite task in all of CC is moving ingredients over! It's so tedious! I'm glad I have you bloggers to share ideas with. None of my friends are up to this level. Most are still in the 200's and a couple are in the 300's. It's lonely at the top. LOL I have never bought boosters and I refuse to start now!
I passed this in one day! I tried moving both ingredients to one side but it wasn't working for me so I went back to playing both sides. I was able to get the ingredients where they needed to be and then worked on the cakes. They both happened to explode at the same time and the ingredients fell through. 3 stars! Head's up level 410 is horrible. They revamped it for the PC to make it easier but most phones still have the more difficult version!
I hate this level! This is one that isn't even fun to play. I actually BEAT IT and was so excited until it froze and then just snapped back to my home screen - completely out of the game. I was so frustrated!!!! I have never paid for anything along the way and I refuse. I figure there is only one more level anyway so i am getting to the point i just don't care
Just finished this on an ipad, no boosters. I really didn't like this level - no real fun factor, for me.What finally won it, after a million rounds, was moving them to one side and then breaking the cake (used a color bomb to activate the stripe in the center)
it's so frustrated retarded level in whole candy crush game. I'm QUIT..!!!!!!
I did not like this level at all - rarely could I get vertical stripes in place to clear the cakes. I finally was able to clear them with a couple of chocolate ball/stripe combos. after every move, keep checking to see if you can move the fruit and nut over, otherwise you won't be able to drop them later.
I just beat this level after approximately 693638724 attempts and am still in a state of disbelief that I actually beat it.For what it's worth, I beat it by getting the two ingredients over to two separate sides and getting lucky enough with special candies/combos to get rid of both cakes at the same time. I did try the "get both ingredients over to the same side" strategy a couple of times in previous attempts, but one ingredient always seemed to get trapped in the middle column whenever I tried it.
A very tricky level this is! I have to say i tried different strategies in here, i tried the strategy where you bring the 2 ingredients into 1 side and when the cannon goes of you are cleared. Did not work for me as it was a lot of work to move an ingredient to 1 side and a whole different level of difficulty to more the 2nd ingredient to the same side by 4-5 moves! Some strategies I did:* made a color bomb and cleared an off color candy that removed it from the board making it easier for me to swap the ingredients with candies, easier to move it sidewards.* Made a vertical striped candy to unfreeze the 2 frozen striped candies. I then swapped them removing the lower bits of the pudding cake.* While slowly clearing bits of the pudding cake, look for chances to move ingredients to 2 different sides. If you see 3 same colored candies surrounding the ingredient, you can start swapping and moving it to the exit columns it does not matter which row it moves just as long as the ingredients are placed in the exit columns. When the canons go of, you are cleared!Good luck! I finished this level with only 2 moves to spare, 3 stars after about 4 days. - LEI
This level is interesting, I like levels as such, it really gives you the proper challenge to work your brains out .. random with a way to stay in control .. the key to beating it seems to be pretty simple .. move the ingredients aside before you try removing the cakes .. focusing on that allows you to do both at the same time .. and when you are ready, cakes are gone, and you've had won ! .. thank me later .. I am still not past it, @ 4th try or something, but this is how it shall and will go ..
@ 6th or 7th try, DONE ! boooowho ever keeps trying on this level of difficulty for days, pay attention, you are doing it wrong .. check out my previous comment ;)
I thought I was going to be stuck on this very unenjoyable level for a long time. After many attempts, I came here and it reaffirmed what needed to be done. Move the ingredients any chance you have, don't rush this game, even though it seems erratic. In the end, I moved both ingredients to opposite sides, you need one of them on the side before the hammer comes down, same with the other. I tried numerous times to get both ingredients to one side, but it seemed to take too many moves. With one side cleared opens more opportunities for combos.Best of luck, if I can do it, it is doable! Mish xx
Wow...I just got on 409 last night and with the tips I got here I beat it this morning!! I managed to work them to one side and bust that cake and BAM...done! Now on to 410.....
I have tried all options and never have enough moves to complete the level. I seem to use all my moves trying to get the nuts and cherries in the correct position. Is there a trick to getting the fruit over faster? Quite frustrated.
I'm ready to quit!
This level officially sucks a butt. It's not even fun, half the time I just close it and don't even feel like playing it. This is gonna be the one that ends it for me, I'm getting sick of it.
Okay, not enough people tell you exactly what to do. I watched the video carefully and I finally got it. First, try to move the pieces away from the center to the left and right respectively. In other words, move one to the far left, away from the pink and blue circles and one to the right away from those pink and blue circles. THEN, the goal is to CRUSH the pies, because then they drop out of the puzzle and you win. Now, I won't lie, I played it a lot to get there, but once I figured it out, it was just a matter of time.
As usual, you have to have the board. I thought I had it a few times, but no cigar! I think at this level they are trying to slow people down so they can develop more Episodes. 81 comments. 2 separate videos. 31 more comments. More complaints than Kuddos. I still have the guy with the stuff coming out of his nose. When that is gone, does that mean you could win?
For days, and hundreds of attempts, I have tried every tip and watched the video until my brain is fried with no luck, not even close. This level is just a bl**dy joke & I am ready to quit!No fun anymore!!!
A other very difficult one. Very frustrating.
Frustrating... it's so hard to find ANY opportunities to move the ingredients. One time I succeeded though, and only smashed the pie on the last move... thought I had it as the ingredients were sitting right above and should have dropped!! But no, the game just ended and the cannon didn't do its job and let the ingredients drop down, even though I cleared the pie with that last move. *sigh* Hard work!!!
i am playing this on my android phone and this level is really impossible and pathetic....king.com sucks...candy crush saga sucks
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Watched your video after attempting this about 100 times and passed it first time with 7 moves left and 3 stars. Take it slowly and get those fruit/nuts over to each side then blow up the pizza. It was clearly a lucky board because I had tried this strategy before and got close but not close enough. Played on the PC. It is not impossible but it is very boring & frustrating [level 147/174] Was going to give up on this level but 410 here we come ....
Watching this makes this level look rather easy but in reality it's anything but, I don't expect it to be easy ,Ive used over 100 lives so far and haven't been anywhere near to clearing , so close to another episode ,im trying like a bear. happy candy crushing folks
Beat this level in only 3 attempts!! Focus on clearing the top sections of the pie, meanwhile move the cherry and acorn over so they hover over the pie. Make a sprinkle bomb and use it to clear the striped candy in the bottom middle. I cleared both pies at the same time. When the pies are gone the exits open up for the acorns and cherries. Clear the fruit to get your acorn and cherry to fall through to collection.
This level is so hard. I have such a hard time moving the items over. This may be the one that does me in and I have only been playing one day.
Playing on iphone 5. Took 4 tries. We have had this concept before. You have to get the ingredients moved over to the far left and far right. It takes a little work to maneuver them over but can be done. I got all 3 stars with 5 moves left. I made focusing on moving the ingredients my priority over getting through the cakes at the bottom. Because if the ingredients aren't lined up they won't fall through even if you clear the cakes. I figured with the number of comments with this level I would be here a few days. Pretty easy all things considered.
Finally after 1 week and was about to delete the game, managed to get both ingredients on the right side ,and with the last piece of cake I used a lollipop hammer to explode te cake and finished this terrible level.
I moved both ingredients to the same side so that I only had to break one cake. It took a few tries but it worked!
lot of times i could only do one or the other destroy cakes but not get ingedients over or vice versa finally got ingredients over to the left and destroyed cake level complete not a high score but who cares it is do able
Please go to: candy crush written tips level 409 and then go read on the same page ''tips'' and then read swapping tips... i think it's the only way, Good luck
Where are the swapping tips you mention? I can't find them.
I tried the suggestions to move both ingredients to the same side and just couldn't get it done. Fortunately after many tries I was able to move both rather quickly to each side and break both cakes. But the hardest part for me was moving the ingredients. Things had to fall perfect for me to finally do so.Keep at it, whatever strategy works. If you are good at moving ingredients then try the one side method and that way you only have one cake to break. That particular strategy just didn't work for me.
It took me about a week to pass this level. I moved both pieces to one side. Broke the cake, and one piece dropped.I managed to move the piece and got lucky to clear out all the candies in that column.Like many Candy Crush levels, keep trying until you get enough lucky breaks to clear the level.
Did it by pushing ingredients to one side and then breaking pie on very last move. Disliked this level due to the difficulty of setting up moves because of randomly dropping candies. Glad it's over.
Same problema here in Brasil.
If ever there was a level that would make me /ragequit this game.....this is it.... I think I've invented a few new four letter words while struggling through this one. This........Level.......Sucks!Absolutely impossible, infuriating, life-shattering...
This is how i made,i read about to move both ingredients in the same side.after 15-20 tryies i made it and i had about 25 moves to break the cake but after 20 more moves i didnt make it and i left with 5 moves and 3 part of the cake(the botom ones).I notice that i had 3 lolipops from the wheel and i thought to try it if the lolipops can break the part of cake and it works...1 lolipop for 1 part of cake.I didnt know that...just i risked it and worked.Just be sure that the both ingredients is in place that after cake explodes the will fell down on exits.This is how i made it ;)
Guys, I don't think it's a glitch. I think they designed it specifically so that you need to manually move the nut/cherry across. That's what makes the level so difficult. The portals do make it much easier to make combos though. So what you have to do is manually move the nut and cherry across to the edges of the board and then get rid of the cakes. I've tried getting rid of the cakes first and it's so hard to get the nut and cherry down afterwards. Leave getting rid of the cakes last.
I moved the acorn and cherry over two on each side and dropped them down to the bottom portal. If I had a chance to get part of the cake while doing this I took the opportunity. Last I got a speckled and stripe and exploded the cakes---- bingo!
This level is not fun! There is no way to move the acron & cherry to the side. They just keep going around & around! Ready to call it quits!
Moved both fruit to same side then pure luck to break the cake.
I finally got as far as getting the apple through, but that was a magnificent board. Haven't come close yet, EXCEPT, one board where I managed to get two color bombs together. When I set them off, it created another color bomb next to a striped candy. I thought my worries were over, but when I made the move, the color bomb just disappeared! No action whatsoever! Things like this have happened throughout all the levels (usually at the worst possible moment) but that one really miffed me. It would have won the round and now I'm still playing it, over and over and over.
