Tips for level 421 Candy Crush

Fibro Froggy

Froggys Tips Your goal is to mix 7 sets of striped candies and there are 4 striped candies on the board already, but they are in the far corners and you need to make room to make matches. Now remember once you set off the cannons, it clears ALL the pieces on the board, but you really have to at least remove 2 of them to make enough matches to work with.

Any tips on this level?

Anonymous said...

Like almost all levels in this group of 15 it is almost entirely LUCK! This is by far the worst designed set of levels in the game. I'm stuck on this level too. I've played it about 10 times so far and haven't got lower than 3 switches still left to do. About the only small strategy is to try to remove one pie before unsealing the 4 corners. This way - the big hammer will cause the top corners to fall right above the bottom corners and you can get one switch out of the way. Unfortunately, one is the most you're going to get. You can get one switch if you have the paintbrush charm. Try to eliminate the rest of the pies quickly and then hope for incredible luck to get 5 or 6 switches. Of course you could spend a fortune on many free hand switch boosters...

I have had 6 of the 7 switches three times now (out of what feels like at at least 50 attempts.) You can also get a fast switch if you're lucky enough to be able to make a striped candy right next to one of the corner pieces. Beyond that, I am as stuck as ever it seems.

John Denmark said...

What a crap level. Apart from depending too much on (a lot of) luck, it's filled with bugs. I constantly get the "suggested move", being 2 or even 3 different colors - and now and then get the trumpet, without having removed one of the pizzas.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone noticed the other bug where you match 4 and it doesn't give you a striped candy. Very frustrating. I have had this one down to 2 needed matches and agree that it is all luck. Even the how to win videos here make at least 2 of the matches on lucky falling of the candy

Anonymous said...

I have played this one at least (no joke) 1000 times. closest i have got is down to 2. Time for my day as a crusher to end. Any suggestions? for a new addiction./

Anonymous said...

I agree. Most ridiculous level I have come across. Close to giving up. Been on it for 4 weeks now

Anonymous said...

Anonymous August 16, 2013 at 10:54 AM - I have also noticed that it doesn't give you your well-earned striped candies all the time. The first time that happened, I thought I was mistaken, but I have had it happen more than once and see you say the same thing - so it isn't my imagination. I have also noticed the bugs that John Denmark mentioned. Again, when the hammer came before I thought I cleared a pie, I thought maybe it got cleared accidentally. However, the suggested move was definitely noticeable. This level really needs some work. Has anyone other than the on-line video players cleared it yet (and without boosters)?

Anonymous said...

I've had it down to one combo 3 times. I think this is a nice little jump off point for me as well!

Playing on levels for a month at a time (417 and this one) the fun is virtually reduced to none.

Anonymous said...

I come back every so often to see that this level is still buggy. Hope they fix it soon. This level doesn't give you enough striped candies (like other levels that have this requirement), so I sure would like to get the stripe candies when I match four.

Anonymous said...

Im so tired of this, no enjoyable game anymore. Episode is lame, tornadoes suck, worse than chocolate. Pure luck, not fair to all of us who made it so far.

JediJones said...

This one is starting to seem more difficult than 410. I hsven't seen the bug where you don't get a stripe from matching 4, but I have seen the bug where it suggests that I match three candies whose colors don't match at all.

The only other strategy I've been trying is to try and use a color bomb to reduce the number of colors on the board and hopefully make more stripes appear. I'd like to try a color bomb/wrapped combo to help do that even better, but I haven't been able to nail that combo yet on this level.

Usually I don't have all the pies cleared until I'm down to about 20 moves and it's purely random whether I've been able to get any stripe matches at all by then. I don't think I've gotten closer than still being short 3 stripe orders. I've probably played it about 30 times so far.

Anonymous said...

My approach was to get rid of the pies as quickly as possible. What worked for me was an early chocolate color bomb with a striped candy that eliminated the pies right away. That gave me plenty of room to make the striped combinations. I took my time and planned out my moves carefully. Good Luck! PM

Anonymous said...

Wow.. I pretty much agree with everyone else... this level seems nearly impossible. I've got all the way here without purchasing anything and would like to keep moving on. I'm glad it's not just me that's seen all of the bugs in these levels. I've been able to clear the pies by 36 moves, but thanks for the tip of trying a color bomb with a striped real early to eliminate the pies. Hope it works, cause I'm about to give up.

Anonymous said...

Finally did it yesterday after a day and a half trying and with no boosters, so can be done, horrible level tho and agree is full of bugs, extra good luck to everyone, you will pass it just need a bit of luck x

AlettaMotion said...

In level 417, the tornadoes could be helpfull. But in this level, they're really ridiculous.
Closest I've been: 1 combination left.

AlettaMotion said...

Yes! I did it today!
It's 80% luck, 10% focus and 10% 'praying the tornadoes won't ruïn your plan of making striped candies'.

Anonymous said...

I finally did it today as well after about a week on this level. Not sure if it was just pure luck, but I think best bet is to eliminate pies right away, you seem to get better luck with 4-combos once all pies are gone... good luck!!

Anonymous said...

♥ Finally did it after 2 days!! Yep, just luck. I started making matches right away while eliminating the pies. Gets me ahead a little after the pies are gone.

Anonymous said...

I keep getting a pop up asking me how I rate this level. I rate it boring everytime, because who wants keep playing a level that is nearly impossible to beat. This is the worst I have seen yet.

Elena said...

Today is the day. It finally happened. I had 3 moves left and one combo to make. So i decided to spend a buck and got 5 extra moves (just because i knew there was many striped candies next to each other).
Good luck to everyone.

BernieP said...

I have tried this level at least 100 times and have not been close to finishing. Time for me to say goodbye to Candy Crush.

Anonymous said...

Got to be one of the most boring levels on Candy Crush so far, thank goodness they have added the button to end the game early. No skill to this level, all it seems to want me to do is flip relentlessly, even if I manage to get two together the whirlpool always lands on one so pointless exercise. The number of times I have ended the game because I can tell quite early on which way it's gonna go. Easier on the iphone/pad but very slow in updating on there. Will wait till the update is available and see how I go, if still pointless then I shall delete it. Life is too short.

Anonymous said...

Another issue with this is the bug it seems to have, I set up one stripe and then can do another to land next to it but then a bug enters and the 4 does not turn into a stripe, funny how that never happens in the video!!! Come on fix it!!!!!

maebee said...

Impossible level. Very very frustrating :(:(:(

Anonymous said...

Even getting lucky with lots of stripes, I can not get to 7 combos. Some games are pathetic and I quit early, others come close, but losing patience.

Shawn said...

Wow! Another hard level! I can only get 4 combos half of the time, maybe 1 or 2 times about 2 combos left.
The obvious combo I can see is to blow one cake before touch the 4 corner, but that only gives you one combo and the rest 6 is so hard to make with the annoying twister candy!

Shawn said...

After stuck for two days, beat it the first try this morning without boosters!

Anonymous said...

Stuck for weeks on this level...have deleted game...too many bugs in higher levels they don't care to address...don't give you any boosters even after getting up in higher levels is bad business

Anonymous said...

Uncanny how many times I clear the last pie to get a completely fresh grid of 81 candies and cannot make a single friggin' stripe on my next move...

Uncanny how many colour bombs I can make when they're pretty much useless and would much rather have a line of four only...

Uncanny how many times I am close to clearing a pie without touching a corner stripe, only for the poxy tornado to go and crush one of them instead...

Uncanny how this game is so bloody rigged...

Anonymous said...

The WORST level ever. Only shear luck will get you through it. I probably played it 1000 times. Enough to make you want to quit.

Anonymous said...

agian a shit level!!

Anonymous said...

So annoying!
I needed one more swap and had two stripes side by side, but it was my last life!!!
I refuse to buy extra moves.
Guess I will keep on trying and hope for luck

Anonymous said...

New mobile update seems to be easier to make stripes, I still have not beat it yet though. The stripes start out coming and then less ans less as moves dwindle down. Also same glitches are still here. The hammer breaks the top corner stripes even when the jelly is intact.

The whole level is so annoying, I don't know how much longer I can take it.

Anonymous said...

I've been waiting for the mobile update for my I-phone for about a month. Stopped at 410. Has anyone updated yet?

Anonymous said...

again a shitt bull level!

Anonymous said...

Mindnumbingly boring level. I've noticed that thruout this episode there seem to be a lot of bugs....candies not falling as they should, combos not coming together correctly, etc..I'm playing the latest updated (Sept.19) iPhone and iPad edition and it doesn't appear like these bugs have been addressed. I'm quickly losing interest.....Much more fun and satisfying going back and re-playing some of the easier 360+ levels and upping my scores.

Anonymous said...

For anyone who has passed the Soda Swamp episode, are the episodes after this one (levels 426 and above) any easier? I've made it to level 421, but am really sick of the Soda Swamp episode. Almost ready to quit the game entirely.

Anonymous said...

I have been trying this level for days. I have got close several times but never close enough!
Today though, the tornadoes seem even worse than ever. I am sure they are targeting my striped candies or combination moves.
It was hard enough before but today seems impossible. Have they updated this to make it even harder?

Anonymous said...

Apart from all the other very valid comments here, this level should be called the "ironic" level. In earlier levels when I wanted colour bombs and/or wrapped candies, these were difficult to come by, and I seemed to have no trouble making striped candies. In this level where I want striped candies, there is an abundance of opportunities to make colour bombs and wrapped candies, but not so much for striped candies.
When I applied the update on my iPad a couple of days ago, it wiped out the 25 lives that I had accumulated waiting for the update. Not happy!!

Anonymous said...

Oh, man I agree about the bugs. I have striped candy exploding randomly even though there are not two colors anywhere near to make a match of three (just happened when I carefully dropped two striped expecting to make a match). I've gotten down to one but usually still have at LEAST 3 left.

Amanda Sivey said...

By far the worst level yet I'm sure I've played at least 50 times the closest I've come is having 2 striped switches left... this is no fun. They don't even allow you to make moves. I can't even see a way I could spend money on boosters to even win with the pies blowing everything away! Please change this level Candy Crush or you will lose my business!

Just a way to get us so spend more money,levels are getting way out of hand almost time to kick game into touch.

Anonymous said...

This is the first time I haven't rolled my eyes and thought quit your bitchin' I'm just looking for help!!! Like I have read so many times "there's a reason you made it this far just keep trying". Previously I agreed with that. Except for some of the earlier posts I have experienced about every other situation. The last game I played I got rid of the pies early...yeah I might have a chance..NOT!!!!! Set up 2 stripes together pretty simply BAM the tornado hit....happened 3 times in a row and the game went downhill from there!!! Not gonna lie I'll be back but gonna go on hiatus for awhile and hope they get their heads out of where the sun doesn't shine and fix this level!!!

PA Crisher said...

Definitely agree that the "tornado" level really leaves a lot to be desired. It is universally unpopular and I think it has to do with the fact that because the tornadoes randomly destroy any set ups you are making (and to a lesser extent "help" you by occasionally removing a jelly by hitting it twice or move something needed for a combo into position by destroying a candy, all the levels come off as "random" or "not much skill, but a ton of luck required". I will be glad to be finished with this set, although, I would guess they will continue to reappear in future episodes (but hopefully with all this feedback, not too much). Anyway, I was able to beat this level with about 10 tries. Never got less than 3 combos left until the winning game. Somehow I was able to get 3 combos before ever destroying a cake. After that, a slow methodical "check every move" strategy got me last 4 combs after clearing the board of cake. Every combo I got, I used the chance to remove a tornado and that got me a few un-disturbed moves to set things up, and was lucky they weren't destroyed. I saw some comments above saying that destroying the cake while the candy was wrapped would have them drop on each other. Never worked for me, the hammer always removed everything. Best advice is to reset the board until you're guaranteed to get a strip or two in the first moves and then you have a good chance to get a combo or two before the cake destruction. Glad this one's over!

Anonymous said...

Focus on busting one pie at a time if possible. This knocks the tornado out and gives you a few moves tornado free. Also, at the beginning try to make a combo with the corner stripes-- the tornado actually helps achieve this by taking out unwanted candies in your way.

It seems like it takes 3-5 moves (sometimes more) to make a combo. If you do the math this leaves little room for error (moves that don't help achieve your goal) always look at the top of the screen for stripe combos first as they are easier to move where you need them.

Lollipops are good help too.

Anonymous said...

Just did it without any boosters. I thought I'd never beat this one, but it took me only one day and about 30 tries.
Someone suggested to keep the stripes in the corners unsealed so that the first blow would unseal them and they would fall upon each other. Maybe it works on computer, but it doesn't on iPad. The stripes just disappear and are wasted. So it's better to break them right away. I was able to get two combinations before I even broke the first cake. And then I guess I just got lucky. With a bit of skill and with a tornado that fortunately didn't touch my combinations (although they blew twice without reason) I had still 3 moves left when I finished.
Keep on trying. This level is tough, but you'll get the lucky board eventually - Gabi

Anonymous said...

So over this level! I've played at least 30 games per day for nearly two weeks (on laptop and iPad). I have been down to one combination twice only, with the final combination set up with only a move or two to go, only to have the tornado destroy that last combination!
I like the levels to be a challenge but this is ridiculous!! Need my life back!

King's Candy crush is a waist of time. Level 421 is not playable... i think there is an idiot who made this level

Finally got this level (with 3 stars and combos to spare!!) after hundreds of games and several weeks of trying. Was about to give up as, quite honestly, I was totally bored by it and figured I had better things to do in my life!! Love a challenge but this was ridiculous!! JM

Anonymous said...

This level, along with a few others, just made me think what a waste of time this is. Game is not challenging anymore, so I'm done. But before I delete the game, does anyone know if I can give away my leftover "candy crush gold credits" to anyone else? or are they lost with the game when you delete it? They are not FB credits anymore, so I don't know. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

Finally I have my life back! After well over 1,000 tries (not getting very near in any of them) in 2 months I have finally admitted defeat and deleted it - no more candy crush for me! This level is impossible to do without the help of "extras" - which you have to pay for of course! Happy to have got this far but I'm not wasting any more time on something that it unachievable

This level seems impossible you can plan NOTHING I refuse to pay to play and have been stuck for weeks on levels before and played every day now maybe once a week I dont play to get angry and this level makes me angry ..... fun o meter what a joke on this level BOOOO king games

horrible level. played too many times to count. didn't think there could be a level as bad as 408 but this may be it. have had all possible boards except one that I can actually win on: board started well then got nothing, started badly then got better but not enough chances to win. have had 2 combinations before pies eliminated and in only a few moves only to get nothing when the board is cleared of pies. i have been down to 1 combination a few times maybe even quite a lot of times but nothing compared to how many times there is simply nothing doing. i am bored, bored, bored by this and I am sure I didn't feel like this on 408. this is only the 2nd time I have posted. 408 being the 1st when I just declared it 'ridiculous'. this is more than ridiculous it is truly mad. are my cc days over?

Anonymous said...

I don't mind paying a few dollars at the end if I'm close but level 421 is so ridiculous. Like many people I live a very stressful life and this is supposed to be challenging, yet relaxing and fun. It's not anymore. I was a number one fan of this game, but am about to delete it, which is not good for their company because as I said, I have no problem paying a few bucks for my entertainment. I am NO LONGER entertained!!!!!

I've crushed a lot of candy and I have been a huge fan, but this level is impossible. It will be the one to end my crushing days.

When the game stops relying on skill and starts relying on luck it's time for me to find a better time waster. Too bad, I've spent a LOT of time on this game and am going to miss the old Candy Crush. This one can bite me. -April

Anonymous said...

I posted on the 1st October wondering if this was the end of my cc days - it is not - or not yet - I just passed. I was really, really focussed but the fact remains that cc is getting sillier & sillier. A first impression of the next level (whether it is difficult ti pass or not: I have yet to find out) is that it is just plain daft. When I started out playing I wanted to get to 'the end', now i am not sure I am bothered !!

Good Luck to all......

.......for however long you can take it : )

After hundreds of attempts, I thougt I had it... only two combos to finish, still 3 movements, and two pairs of combos ready in the board... I go for one, and then the #$$%·& tornado ruin the other.
Game over for me. Stupid and impossible level, no skill, you need mire luck than God to win it.

Israel 2012 Ilana said...

After 420 level, of which, yes, I have been frustrated but at least have come close so had faith, this level is by far the least fun level, because I cannot even get close. No fun, no hope. If Candy Crush creators are reading this blog, they need to tweak this level and at least make it doable. Really, not having fun anymore and ready to pack it in!!

Anonymous said...

Dear ALL! This is a free game, it is meant to challenge you as well as annoy you hence it's called a game! Some get lucky and some don't on each level. Tips are great but to complain because you can't pass a level? Why it's free? Get out of here cry babies..... Patience is a virtue (unless you play Candy Crush).

I would never give up. The game wouldn't be any fun if it wasn't challenging and yes, lucky. I was stuck on 410 over a month but never gave up. I'm a true player. I love the challenge.

Bill. said...

Just completed after four days. Make sure you have one combination before you clear any pies otherwise start a new game. Careful control is then needed plus a little luck. I quite enjoyed the challenge but it was a little boring at times.

Anonymous said...

Just passed after a few days of trying, very frustrating, buggy as hell. Keep re-starting until you get a combo on the 1st move then pray for luck, thats all.

Dicharden said...

finally past this level. Best advice I got from this blog was concentrate on stripped matches not clearing pies. also when u have 3 colors next to same colored stripped candy you'll get 2 stripped candies side by side. And use color bombs to advantage by igniting least colored candies to make room for colored candies already in abundance. (If that makes sense). Good luck, not impossible.

Anonymous said...

Whoever designed this level should be shot.
50 moves to get 7 strip combos, so starting at 7 moves for each combo. You need at least 15 moves to clear the pies, leaving you with 35 moves for 7 combos, one every 5 moves. IMPOSSIBLE!
Then, if you manage to clear a pie without removing the marmalade around the striped in the corners, they still disappear...this last episode is no fun at all, only reason I am still playing is hoping that the next episode will be better and that whoever designed this episode is fired.

Anonymous said...

I'm out. Mindnumbingly boring, filled with bugs, totally rigged and overall a piece of crap level. They are trying to force players to buy boosters but they won't see a penny from me. Uninstall. Sure it hurts them badly to lose 1 player...

Anonymous said...

My tactic is

1. clean all stones ASAP. During the cleaning, I am keep looking at chance to get strip combos. It is always the case that larger the space, larger the chance to create strip.

2. after clean up stone, create as many strip as possible regardless of their location. it always waste moves to create a strip that near your created one. I would create as many as possible so that it let luck to find out any combos.

3. if you have chance to create chocolate bomb, do it and use it to reduce a particular color.

4. try avoiding create wrap candy as it may create uncertainty to your plan.

I found that if I create a strip and then another strip for a merge one by one. 50 moves are not enough as I need to spend more than 10 moves usually to clean the stones. So, I create as many strip as possible and let luck to see if they are closely located.

During my 10 tries, I got 1 times leaving 1 strip combos left and another leaving 2 before success.

Good luck

I think there must have been some sort of bug-fix in the update for phone last night.
I have played it a countless number of times and after the update i passed the level in frist try :-)

Anonymous said...

No point in trying to save the marmalade, when first pie goes off all except bottom right disappear, with or without the marmalade to protect it. If you haven't made a combo in the first 15 moves you might as well quit as there is no way to make 7 combos in 35 remaining moves. This level is the worst so far and it totally has taken the fun out of the game.

Jude said...

Not a great level. Took me about a week. 99% luck. Just keep an eye out for possible stripe switches in the play before the pies go. I got 3 during this phase, with 35 moves left (had used one of those free "extra 3 moves bonuses). Then concentrate on making stripes, wherever they are. I was left needing 2 with 20 moves left and cleared it with 6 moves to spare.
Previously had been nowhere near most of the time, occasionally down to needing only one switch.

Tegan said...

Well I FINALLY finished this level! Was stuck on it for a week and it was sheerly pure luck and two purchases of extra moves. Keep going everyone. It's doable!

Anonymous said...

What bothers me the most are those stupid tornadoes. Just when you are setting up getting 2 stripes next to each other they come in and destroy the board. Not fair and you need luck on your side. When the game decides to let you pass then it will. Losing interest once again.

Anonymous said...

Ridiculous, had three opportunities to pass the level after building available striped combos, but the tornado started a chain reaction or removed them altogether. It's not even luck anymore as the game seems actively bent on making sure you dot pass it. I only needed one combo with 18 moves left, had what I needed where I needed it but the game decided otherwise. Casinos have better odds than this.

Anonymous said...

The secret to this level is complain about it on this thread, then play. I posted the previous post, then passed it on my next try. Good luck!!

Anonymous said...

I like a challenge as much as the next player, but I would appreciate playing on a level playing field. After innumerable tries I have never got closer than 4 matches remaining. I cannot believe the tornados are random, after several moves to set up a combo the tornado without fail ALWAYS kills the move or sets off one of the stripes. C'mon King, give us a chance on this one.

I am on level 421 absolutely ridiculous level to put off any person who has come this far!! They should Atleast fix the round tornado thing that it does not appear just when one has managed to pair 2 strip candys, infact it should not go over any stripe candys! Worst ever level! Tried over 1000 times still stuck !

Worst level yet. I connected to Facebook for the first time at this point to see if anyone had passed it- they hadn't. Luckily, once I connected they gave me tons of free boosters. I used all three Lucky Candy boosters to get anywhere near close and finally caned up all my free extra moves using the gold bars. I was then one combo away with one lined up and 0 moves left. Shamefully I purchased another move for £0.18 to win the game, so gutted they took my cash. Booo!!

I was on level 421 of the IPAD APP and the game started counting into negative lives (ie -1, -2 etc) when I used the initial 50. at -98 I finally won the game but it froze and didn’t register.

its crazy that some of these games are so rigged its impossible to win even without about 150 lives.

they are scamming to frustrate a person and make them spend money out of that frustration

I'm done with candy crush because of this level. Unless you have a huge amount of luck you could play this level forever. So it's just become a giant bore, and why play a boring game? So long, it's been great reading all your posts up till now. Good luck to everyone who continues to play.

Don't bother to play this level, if you create some stripes the tornado will wipe them out. It is stacked too much against the player and is just boring after trying so many times. Shame, as it now time to say good bye to Candy Crush and can't see the point of King adding more levels if you cannot get past this one.

Just like an earlier comment, I added a comment and then cleared this level on my next attempt. Is this pure coincidence?

Pretty difficult level. Passed it after about 30 attempts. No booster. Just concentrate on making stripes whenever available. Don't worry about combining them immediately. The stripes will come together if enough are on the screen.

The remaining levels after this one are pretty easy. I am waiting for tickets to the next episode. Hopefully I won't see the tornados again!!!

Anonymous said...

I have played this level at least 250 times. Can't get closer than two combos left to get. I don't need all those chocolate balls and wrapped candies that have suddenly become so numerous. Where were they when I really needed them???? When will the game decide that it's time for me to move on and LUCK comes my way because that's all there is to it.

I have to say this level was very difficult to pass! I kept rewatching the video, in one of my plays when I got down to just 1 striped combo, I got so enticed to buy extra moves! But finished the level without boosters, 2 stars and a few moves to spare.
Some tips to share:
* Before you start your first move check the board if you can make striped candy near the frozen striped candies. I usually use the upper left frozen candy, it is easier there.

* Clear only 1 pudding cake one at a time. After clearing 1 pudding cake, stop and check for possible striped combo. You must make at least 1 striped combo for every pudding cake cleared. I tried clearing all 4 cakes but i only ended up with lost moves and not meeting the requirement.

* After a pudding cake is cleared the cannons will go off clearing the board. Sometimes if you still got your 2 striped candies frozen at the top it will fall down to the bottom but for me it only happened like thrice or sonething. Most of the time when the cannons go of all frozen candies get lost.

* When you have already formed a striped candy, do your best to make intelligent moves and form a second one. Better if the combo will clear the next pudding cake or eliminate the soda cyclone. When hit by a striped combo the cyclone disappears for 2 moves or so.

* You need patience more than luck in this level. Always stop and look for striped candy in every move. Eventually the game will give you a very passable board! Good luck and keep crushing candies and these cyclones! -LEI

I'm done. Challenging is fun, impossible is not. I'd rather replay earlier levels than keep hoping I get lucky enough to pull off a miracle. Lame.

I've noticed another bug in this level. When I'm moving a stripe down to match it with one below, it sometimes goes off for no good reason that I can see. I keep resetting the board by hitting the back button on my phone so I can make a stripe near one of the corner stripes at the beginning of the game. The closest I have gotten is 5 out of 7 and that was only once. As far as being fun to play, it's not. 410 and 417, while difficult, were at least semi enjoyable. I agree with the people above who said to clear the cakes as fast as possible. A clean board makes it easier to see potential matches. This is my third day but I'm not giving up yet!

after 2 months of playing candy crush..i reach level 420.but, this level alone took me 8 days..i never get caught this long...when the time comes cc will allow you to finish the level
or else cc will let u stuck for days
very nonsense level

Anonymous said...

Not fun anymore. I miss the days of looking forward to play a few levels at a time, but just not possible anymore. Not playing nearly as much as I used to. I play now and then but not much happens. I do seem to be getting more striped combos but I can't get more than 3 or 4. Why do they have to make it so difficult?

Anonymous said...

After using over a hundred lives and spending a couple of weeks on this level,I finally beat it. Actually, there wasn't any skill involved so let's say I "Finished" it. Never came close to beating it until I hit the board to "Finish" this nightmare. Was so pissed that I spent $.99 but it was worth it to say good-bye to Soda Swamp, the worst episode in CC!!

Anonymous said...

I'm wondering why the developers decided on 7 combos! It doesn't seem possible. The most I've gotten is 5! It seems like a lot of players are bailing on the game. If they want to keep us, they should pay attention to the feedback. I have noticed that when the cakes are still in play, it's easy to make stripes but hard to match them. Once the board is clear, the game seems Hell bent on not allowing stripes or sabotaging them with the toffee tornado. It's disheartening to know that the next level is going to be hard as well. How about mixing it up a bit and giving us a break? This is by far the hardest episode in the entire game! Not asking for easy all the time. Just sayin!

Trock said...

Been on this level for two weeks now and haven't got lower than 2 and that was pure luck. The Tornado is not fucking random, that son of a bitch forces you into moves that eliminate any chance you have a building stripes. Then when you do, it smashes the stripe candy and causes a chain reaction, hitting your other precious stripes just demolishing the board. Its a fucking scam of a level forcing your hand to buy some help. I have no doubt that there is a level of interference with the level that is programmed to lower your chances of winning. The game is not fun when it isn't random.

Anonymous said...

I still say we should be allowed to buy a level pass! King would make money and we would still have all of our hair! This is the first time I've ever been tempted to buy something like that.

I agree with the post above! The tornado targets potential combos, especially when it has been swept off the board and has just come back. It swoops in! You can't tell me the it is not programmed that way!

Come on Candy Crush - HELP US!!!!!!!!

Whoever said you can pass this level after complaining is wrong! I've posted several times and I'm still stuck. Pretty much always have 3 combos left. Occasionally have two. I have never gotten down to 1! I will mention that the sprinkle balls seem to serve no good purpose but I would suggest cutting out a candy that is sparse on the board, just like in other levels. It gives you at least a fighting chance of making stripes. The bugs still persist with the stripe combos that magically don't appear when you try to make them or the stripe that explodes on it's way down when you are trying to move it. I haven't seen any improvements in the week I've been playing. I'm hoping someone from King will read our posts eventually!

I find that it is extremely difficult to beat this round. A lot of times the the striped candies will burst by itself after u made a combo. Also after clearing a pie, the wrapped striped candies does not dropped down at all. It disappears together with the rest of the candies. Why is it so for iPad app but not on computer? They should synchronize it to be fair.

Anonymous said...

I have played this level at least 100 times and still can only get 5 of the 7 combos, at the most. I have played on the PC and my phone and neither one seems any easier. I've been following the suggestions above but I've done equally well even I started the cakeless board with all 7 combos remaining. It's purely luck! I wish they could stop the tornado from landing on a potential combo after it's been out of play for 5 turns! It crushes the spirit!!!

Good bye candy crush!!! Level 421 is just stupid get no where near completing it ! They clearly don't want to listen to people's suggestions. I get that they want to make money and I wouldn't mind if I was close enough for extra moves to hell but not even getting that close. Been on it for weeks. Thanks for nothing king!

Anonymous said...

I've made a lot of comments on this level, but after 2 weeks and over 400 lives, I passed it on the my first try today. The stripes just fell in the right places and I had about 6 moves left. Just luck. I'm sure they'll be more frustrating levels coming my way.

Level 421 is so difficult and must be just luck. I am not sure how long I will be stuck here but will probably keep trying so hopefully will get a good board soon especially one like the video would be nice but I really do not think I would b e that lucky

Goodbye candy crush I like a challenge but this level is ridiculous! When the game makes wrapped candies and they should be striped and then when you do make a striped they then explode for no apparent reason you will just not win this level so I hope King fixes this soon good luck everyone

Has King stopped listening to us?? You would think after weeks and weeks of people mentioning bugs someone would have addressed it. Of all the difficult levels in the game, this is the most boring and seems to be the most impossible. I don't want to be stuck here for a month, like I was on level 147!!!

Does anyone notice how sometimes when the pies blow up the plates are clear but sometimes they are black? Is that a clue that means this try is a beatable try? Also when the trumpet blows up the plates all the stripes in the corners go away even if they are in the jelly.

Notice how the tornado seems to block your every move, even destroying ur attempted combos. Totally sucks. Don't even get enough stripe candies like in previous levels when board refills.

I HATE THIS $&*@($&*#%*# LEVEL!!! I so wish I could just quit and be DONE!!!!!

nessie said...

I dont mind the tornados if they were really random but they are not, at this level i got sure they are meant to screw your game and make it almost impossible to win the board. I lost count of how many times they burst my stripes and ruin the entire try. They even have burst the jelly stripes at the beggining of the game so often that after my first or second move i already know is a lost... this is pathetic

Beth said...

Noticed that people are saying to clear a cake first which releases the corner candies, putting them next to one another. Every time i clear a cake the explosion from the party popper thing takes out the unopened corner candies along with the other candies. Is this a bug aswell?

Unknown said...

Angie says : I just reached this level today and only played 3 times so far . I wasn't able to make not even one order . I am certain I will eventually make some, but the total 7 ones required , seems an impossible task . And we are really good in crushing , we have managed to get this far . Anyway, I hate already this level . Enormously.

even if you get them to fall like that in the beginning you will only get one set and still not come close to clearing this level.

DON'T QUIT!!!! Post, post and repost your comments and King will hear you! I beat 421 on Oct.21. Little did I know that level 425 was so difficult that King redesigned that level after complaints dating back to July. That level was just updated in the middle of October. It wasn't a cakewalk to beat but very doable after the update. I think King has kind of screwed themselves on what to do. Changing two levels in one episode ??? Until the "Geniuses" figure out what to do POST!!! After using over a hundred lives I not only beat 421 a week ago I finished the game at 440 and am waiting for updates on iPad. I stand corrected, I didn't beat 421, I finished it with pure luck!!

Anonymous said...

I finally beat this level after a week and a half and many posts to this blog! What worked for me was releasing the two stripes at the top corners as quickly as possible and then making two combos, while clearing the cakes. I focused on the middle of the cakes so multiples pieces were taken out at once. Don't worry about the stripe in the bottom right corner. When the first cake blows, the trumpet will protect it. I continued working on the cakes and when the board cleared I had 4 combos left. I concentrated on making as many stripes as possible and then moving them around to pair them. Occasionally, the tornadoes would land on them but I didn't let it stop me. When I finished I had 3 lives, two stars, and 128,800 points. This is one level I will not repeat to increase my score!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't understand why this level has not been updated. The number of complaints warrants a change. Anyone who reaches 421 has to be a pretty good crusher...this level is EVIL! the tornado destruction does not seem random, striped candies disappear with no reason, and the game freezes periodically. Ready to give up!

This level stinks. Not as frustrating as other levels but very unfun. I have better things to do.

still stuck on this level, i came to the conclusion that this level is like playing the lottery, you need to repeat it untl you get the lucky prize board! this tornado is ridiculous, i just got a board where i was able to make 2 combos in my first moves without touching the corner jelly guess what! the tornado blew 3 of the jelly in a row, i'm quiting this level for now until an update. Good luck to u all.

I don't want the game to be so simple that it's not challenging but I also don't want it to be so ridiculous to that the fun is taken out. Just about time to find another game. ( not a saga one).

I've beaten every single level so far on the phone version of the game, but with this one I might have to relent and just play on Facebook.

There are too many bugs in the mobile version. The wrapped stripes in the corners don't do what they are supposed to do if a cake is cleared, and sometimes hard-won stripes explode for no valid reason.

This level is already near impossible, without the game itself cheating you. At least on Facebook, the board works the way it's supposed to. I haven't beaten it yet, but at the very least I've come close. I was hoping to beat every level on mobile - but there, I can't get close. The best I can do most times is 3 stripe-stripe combos. I must have played over 100 games and have managed 6 combos only once.

Anonymous said...

Well it must be just luck. Have been stuck on this for 2 weeks then this morning it all came together. Matched 3 before clearing the first pie and around 36 moves left. Managed to match the rest until the last pair when I was looking at how to bring 2 stripes closer together when I noticed one had appeared next to one of the others. And still had 10 moves left. Best I've managed before was 1 left and just out of moves. So as several others have proved it can be done - eventually with luck. Hang in there.

Anonymous said...

Sparky- if we've got this far, we must be keen on the game and must be pretty skilled at it.
But having played this Level hundreds of times I'm getting twitchy about carrying on. I've paid on other levels when I've tried loads and just needed that 'one more move'. But I'm not going to do that on this one as the ******** tornado will splat the combo I'd set up to pass the level.
I know it's a game and I don't have to play it but I am paying and want to ENJOY it again. What are the next levels like? I hope they're better as I'd like something to look forward to if I ever get the lucky board on 421

Anonymous said...

It's a absolute annoying level,there's no strategy,it's luck and I am so sick of playing this level,like most games it can become boring when it's too repetitive they need to fix it or people will lose interest like I have,there's 1000's of online games that I have never spent money on like I have with this.

Anonymous said...

SPARKY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!! Never been this close to giving up. At least 500 tries and did it with 5 moves left. Did manage getting them to drop down after the first plunger (and both sets could be blown up) so thanks for that tip. And then used that other great advice - leave the mouse alone between each go. Got twitchy on the last one but the tornado was kind!

Please no more levels as ridiculous as this!

Has been an an enjoyable and sometimes frustrating journey to level 421 but I agree with other comments, the coders for this series have not done king any favours, loads of friends have deleted this app through sheer frustration, remember gaming should be hard but enjoyable

chrissie lowe said...

I've been near to tears many times on this level.

Have played so many hundreds of times and had 5/7 and 6/7 only a couple of times.

It's hard enough to form stripes ( sometimes they literally just disappear!) or as soon as you do the tornado comes, without having to smash the four centre pieces too.

I love candy crush but I am so disappointed with king and co to let such a ridiculously faulty level get published.

I genuinely don't know what to do next.

I don't want to give up but feel I have no alternative because this isn't a level that can be beaten fairly.

So so 'crushed'

Loved candy crush been my saviour, now it's making me really fed up, it should be fun, but it's not any more, just can't get enough candies have played for weeks and hours on level 421, going to give up just can't take any more of this frustration need my life back one more week then I'm out of here!!! Also think there could be a bug in it could it pleased be checked out?

It's a hard enough level to pass but playing constantly today I've noticed that twice I have actually swapped striped candies and it's NOT BEEN COUNTED!

How can they get such basic things wrong?

Never mind them exploding on their own after you've taken ages to get one and are not even near it!

Or you carefully place one next to each other and it decides to blow up anyway to the whirlwind comes for it.

Come on you guys at king and co.....we are all avid fans to have got so far but this level really needs to be sorted before you lose us all.

How has anyone passed this? I'm amazed.

Will keep trying.

I'd even buy extra moves IF I ever got that far .......

I so wish you could pay to skip a level......

I actually feel kind of accomplished as I have gotten down to 1 combo.....saw a possible when out of moves, grudgingly paid one US dollar for five more moves, and you guessed it LOST!

Anonymous said...

FINALLY passed this level. Really annoying and frustrating..
Tried at least 50 times, probably much more..actually uninstalled the game since I was so fed up with this level. Then tried again.
After another 10 or so tries, I got it with 6 moves left.
Try to make combos while popping pieces of the pie at the same time. If you haven't gotten rid of the all the pies with 40 moves left, stop the game, you won't make it. Unless (like my luck) you already made 2 striped combos. Then plan all your moves and make stripes on every occasion you see, don't concentrate too hard on trying to allign them, with the exploding stripes the lines will drop anyway.
DON'T GIVE UP!

lorraine said...

This is bullshit, I had to stripes together, then before I could do anything about it, it reshuffled when there was plenty moves left, also I get the combos and the bloody spinners wreck it, how the hell are u supposed to pass something like this, this is a bloody con, sorry people but this level is ridiculous :(

Annie Clark said...

BUGS ... I have been on this level for about a month. The have been times that I have two strips together then the board tells me Ithere are no more moves and clears the board!!!! Ahhhh
Very frustrated , perhaps it's time to. Ove onto a new game.

Anonymous said...

WTF I can't beleive anyone could possibly pass this level on a phone. It is hard enough but on the phone things don't even work as they should. The stripes in the top corners disappear halfway down when you clear a cake even though they were covered in jelly. I've had grops of 4 not make stripes and the tornado seems way to agressive at ruining your best or only move. I've also seen things blow up when they shouldnt. I don't think these are bugs but were put there on purpose. I don't like sitting at the computer but I have at least come close on the computer. On the phone I am lucky to get 3 combos, let alone 7!

This level SUCKs!!!!

Anyone that says they passed this level either is a liar, or paid $20 in boosters and extra moves OR works for the candy crush folks.
I don't believe it ! It is absolutely impossible to pass this level in 50 moves, everything is working against making combos.
I'm done with it . I actually started playing the levels backwards since I do enjoy crushing candies but level 421 can't be done .
I'm deleting this game , had fun with it but over it. Time to get back to a real hobby
Nicely done king, you guys are stupid to not fix this level , it has several bugs in it.
Why don't you play it and try to pass it????

Was all set to throw in the towel, after literally about over 100 lives, then thought I just try one more day, and finally passed, but I reckon that got to be the worst level yet, good luck people :)

I have persevered with all the other hard levels but this one just won't give me a break. It's been weeks and I don't even get close to collecting the orders. If I get close to getting a pair of striped the tornado usually destroys what I have set up or it's impossible to set anything up. With the other levels you get so close to winning so you know it's not impossible you keep going but this level is where I finish.

After all of the time I've put into this game, I have never once moaned about the levels. In fact, I have always seen them as challenges. However, this level has forced me to lose all interest in the game. Instead I am playing Pet Rescue.

hang in there fellow crushers, I finally finished, with 2 moves left...I did use the back button to ensure I got the first combo out of the way...and yes you need luck....I found if you unlock the 2 other stripped candies, and make some, when there is no more moves the game can sometimes place your strips together, which helped as well.

I must say I feel a little better after reading all these comments about being stuck on this level - I've been stuck for weeks and the game isn't fun like it used to be anymore. Unfortunately, I'm not good at losing, so I'm going to keep playing til I pass on to 422 (but I'm not happy about it!)

I do have a question though - what is this "back button" people are taking about? I play on my iPhone and have no idea what you guys are talking about...

I forgive chocolate now!

Of all the levels before this one, this level is so buggy that it is impossible to play with confidence. I have had two stripes together and the board reshuffles. I have also had the ability to make a stripe but before I do that I make sure that I don't set off any others with the switch and low and behold, when I make the stripe, it explodes different colors that have nothing to do with the stripe I made or anything else present near by. THis levels is too buggy!!!

Anonymous said...

There is a bug on the iphone version in where; once a pie is cleared and any of the 4 corner stripes are still in its frozen state, the striped candy disappears instead of them being unfrozen. Does not happen on facebook app.

Sebastian said...

One trick that finally helped me past this level was this:
1. First clear off all four pies as quickly as possible.
2. Combine a colour bomb with a wrapped candy. This will immediately reduce the number of different colours on the board by 2.
After that combination it will get a lot easier to form striped candies all over the place.

Anonymous said...

Another money-grabbing level! I so enjoyed the challenge of this game, but no more. I just broke my cardinal rule of not paying for any boosters, a second time on level 420 (did that on 350, also). Now I am on this impossible level. What gives? The tornados take out my carefully formed stripes! And if I manage to clear a pie with all 4 corners still jellied, the pie explosion just removes them from the board, and I have to start over - with few opportunities to form stripes anywhere. I have a 100 game rule, self-imposed. Think this is the level that will finally get me to hit the delete button! I can't imagine any more levels with the tornados - they have taken the challenge, and fun, out of this game.

I am definitely getting the bug where you match four and you don't get it and more importantly and NOT happy with tornadoes destroying the striped candies UNDER jelly in the 4 corners. Not impressed.

Anonymous said...

Every time I think it possibly can't get any worse...it does. This is by far the hardest level, simply because there is absolutely no skill involved. You either get the board or you don't. The twisters take way any real chance you have of getting by this one. Close to 100 tries and the best I have done is 3 orders left. Not only annoying, but very boring too after so many tries.

chrissie lowe said...

Against my better judgement I gave this level another go this weekend.

Have played well over 100 times getting no more than 5 exchanges.

2 or 3 times I thought I had done more but have just proved ANOTHER FAULT!

I was on 5 and exchanged another 2 stripes AND IT STAYED ON FIVE!

There's absolutely NO excuse for a bug as basic as that!

It seems king and Co can't even count!

What a waste of time this has now proven to be....

Goodbye Candy Crush.

Your greed to do more levels in order to keep us hooked has been your undoing as we all leave in droves!

Worst level, by far! I have gotten 6 of 7 combos three times, with tornadoes destroying any chance of getting that last one. Most of the time, I cannot even get one combo! The tornadoes zoom in whenever there is even a remote possibility of putting 2 stripes together. I am finally done! I had a blast with this game, time to move on! And, a suggestion to the game makers at King - get rid of the tornadoes, they are going to be this game's demise.

Hate level 421! I'm lucky to get 2 switches...may have to quit soon! This is one of the worst candy crush levels!

Anonymous said...

Aside from being the worst level ever, it has some serious bugs.

- Multiple times, I have had 2 stripes separated by another color candy but when I matched the candy in the middle with 2 other like colors so that the 2 stripes would be on top of each other, both striped candies exploded.

- Several times when I tried to make a striped candy, all 4 candies just disappeared into thin air like I had only put 3 instead of 4 together.

- Those tornadoes are NOT random...not sure if this is deliberate or a bug but they sure know when to go for the kill, almost every time.

There's no point in playing this game any more, not when this is what I have to look forward to.

mumrigar said...

I'm really just posting to vent to someone who may understand. The best I have gotten is 3 combos left and while I know that if I am just patient - the Candy Crush gods will give me a board that allows me to pass this level - I truly am so bored with that I am not even interested in using my 5 lives. I am frustrated that many times I set up my combos just to have them blow up on their own - which of course I don't get credit for! Grrrr. Okay - rant over.

Anonymous said...

When is King going to fix this level?? Very frustrating. All the stripes are blown away, before I have a chance to switch them It's bad enough with the tornado,but the set-up, which is difficult to manipulate the candy. I've already spent a few dollars, but, when I don't get results...see ya!

Anonymous said...

Seriously? Why is it that I can end up with 5 chocolate balls in ONE game on this level, but it's so damned hard to get stripes? And when I do get them, they are either so far apart I can't do anything with them, or the tornados blow them up.

I'm done like a dinner.

Same here. I know cc needs to earn, and they designed in a way that you don't pay at all from start.

Unlike angry bird which I got all three stars in everything, and I even paid for eagle and what ever they offer in order for me to enjoy the game, cc is created in a way you pay to win, not to enjoy. And even I never paid, I know I give life or moves to people who pay, so it means cc needs people who play: paying or not paying. A lot of my friends stopped playing so I can't ask to unlock next episode. I email them to open cc so they can help me. So if many stop playing, then they don't earn anymore. I wish they sell the game from the start, then make the game a little more sofisticated. In this level I feel stupid, and that's not a good sign.

Anonymous said...

Well over 100 tries and not even close...at times I've had 7 stripes on the board with no way to connect them because either the tornado causes a cascade which blows everything up or the tornado zooms right onto the striped candies.

I got to the point where I don't even play more than 1 or 2 games at a time and even then, I usually quit with around 20 moves left...boring and frustrating. I'm done with this game now, time to find something else.

I finally broke down and paid for more moves to clear this nightmare level. I'm pretty sure that is what they want but after trying well over 100 or more times I finally got down to one match left and I had the perfect set up sitting there so I bought 5 more moves. The freaking tornado ate my set up but left another possibility on the board. I paid for five more moves and FINALLY cleared it with 3 moves left. HATE, HATE, HATE this level. Will never go back to it again!!!!

This level and the rest with the twisters reduces you to more of a spectator than a player. There's no strategy at all...just dumb luck. Oh well, it was fun for 400-something levels so thanks for that :) Moving on!

agree with all the comments past..making a sprinkle ball has never been so easy..and the striped candys get blown out before you can use them..guess you need that lucky board to get thru this one too! and the worst is - as soon as you have 2 stripes together something above or below moves and wipes you out...RRRRRR ....

Even though I had no hope with this level, I kept playing just because I have so much waiting time at my daughter's school or after school activities, then suddenly I cleared it with 16 moves left: 164,460points with 3 stars.

And this is what happened, so you get an idea how wicked this level is.

It didn't look like a lucky board from the start, but I was tired of looking for one. So I just moved anything. I normally move 10 or so, then if no success, quit as early as possible before 20th move.

But today I moved something at side, and suddenly there was tripe candies beside each other on top. When I crushed it, it made some chain reaction to destroy one cake, so bomb came and blew everything. Then there was another stripe candy suddenly was just there, and beside it, I can just make one next to that stripe. As I crushed it, one move to destroy another cake, then again stripe candy was there, and I can just make one beside it in one move. It happened 5 times this way, so by the time all four cakes are gone, I had to make one more combo, and it was just there, you see, just need to use two moves to make two stripe candies beside each other, and one move to crush it.

But then I played this level for loooong time, and most of the time not even a stripe candies, or it explodes by itself, or tornado destroys it, or several times one combo to complete and had 6 or so moves but no luck at all.

So I say this level depends on board you get. Once in whatever ratio, it has a good board, like some past levels, but percentage of getting good board here is really small.

On the initial screen, I somehow managed to end up with 7 stripes...suddenly, the only move left was for me to purposely blow up one of the stripes, which OF COURSE destroyed 3 others. On the very next move, the twister went for one of my corner stripes, which OF COURSE blew up the remaining ones on the board. Quit that game with 43 moves left...enough of this. C-ya, CC.

I managed in first try. Everything panned out, and allmost every time i made a stribe it only took a few, if any, moves to get it next to another. Think i had five p left to make when i crushed the final pizza. Had at least 5-7 moves left when i finished.From reading other commenrs it seems like i was lucky. But it can be done and it can be done without boosters.

I AM READY FOR MY LUCKY BOARD, PLEASE!

The game totally set me up. I had 6/7 done with no moves left, and a pair of stripes sitting next to each other mocking me. I bought moves, for the first time ever. I feel so dirty.

Stupid level. If I had a dollar for every time one of those pesky tornadoes wrecked my double stripe move I'd be able to buy the game and fix it! Grr.

Mother of god! Eventually beaten on the PC by using extra moves and getting lucky clearing the pies in about 5 moves to begin with. Not easy, but possible. Good luck, you'll need it.

Ugh. Can hardly stand to play this one anymore. I end almost every game early since time after time it's clear there is just no way to win it with the number of moves remaining. I only hope that by ending the game early it doesn't actually prevent me from meeting some quota of failed games before I get the gift of that lucky board. This one is really bad. When I first played I thought OK, this is kinda fun. Wrong! Not fun once you realize you can never win it or even come close no matter how many times you play.

Impossible. Bye bye CC.

I am glad to see that there are few people that passed this level because I was 100% sure there was a programming error in it. I consider myself a very good player and got to it before all or most people I know but have been stuck on this for probably 2 month with over 1000 tries. It seems no matter what method I try I get 3 to 4 done. It seems the tornado always knows to break up something that will help me and then candies seem to blow up by themselves a lot. I find myself quitting the game a lot when I am down to 15-20 moves and still have 6 or 7 combinations to go.

Over 200 tries and only been close maybe 3 times. Way to ruin the game. Assholes.

Sadly another one that comes down to basic luck. Hope yours is good as you will need it. Mine is not... been playing a few hundred attempts and not anywhere close so will give it a few more days & then delete. Sad it comes down to this after all these levels.
