Wrapped and striped candies on the far left and right will take care of those nasty corners. I also had two chocolate bombs that eliminated any remaining candies.Keeping a jelly over the chocolate maker on the bottom center allowed me to make a lot of progress before the chocolate started spreading. Good luck! PM
I love advice like that...getting wrapped and stripes on BOTH sides is by no means an easy task. You may as well say that all you need to do is to create six colour bombs within 29 moves so you can pick off each individual colour.Erm, good luck.
LOL! How about combining two wrapped packets on either side. That should do it ;-)
God this is impossible!!
Why is no one else moaning about this level? I think it is the hardest one yet. I am not even getting close!
I am moaning! This is a difficult level! Two wrapped candies right above the bombs knocks them out, but doing that to both sides seems impossible! One of those you levels you just have to play a million times to get that perfect start!
Is it just me or are all the good moves lined up over the chocolate maker and not the bombs!!! No matter how hard I try to keep the combos to the sides if I get one they seem to explode and form something in the middle. I have found the only thing I'm good at on this one is releasing the chocolate!!! HELP!!!!
Just completed after about fourty tries. Just need the right combinations to come along. Pure luck but quite enjoyable.
Agree with the comments above. There seem to be just enough bombs that the mechanics of getting stripe/package combos to clear them is very problematic. It is nice that hittinag one column of bombs, sweeps a few with it so you are generally left with two remaining bombs after 1 hit, but that's two more stripes! Anyway, just to build on the comments above with the middle... I beat the level on maybe my 12th try. I was only able to clear the bombs twice total and both times, it was by concentrating on the middle. If you remove the cream from the middle and expand the space you can work in, given the colors, you can usually manage to get a sprinkle. When you get it, resist the temptation to have it take out several bombs of one color, rather, work to get it next to a stripe. Both times I was able to do this, it wiped out all the bombs and the second time, cleared out everything but 3 jellies as well. Given that you have a ton of moves in this level, that is plenty of time to get the jellies. Just go for the jellies next to the chocolate first. So, again, my advice is to work the middle rather than the sides.
PS. The next level is one of the most fun in the entire game! LOTS of explosions!
I did this level on my fourth try with 21 moves left. I agree with PA Crusher. Concentrate on removing the jelly so you have more space to form combinations. I had a striped/wrapped that opened up the middle and could then combine a sprinkle with a stripe. That took out all the bombs but one. Another sprinkle took care of that. Keep the chocolate in mind but don't care too much about it. It can be removed quite easily. Space to form combos is more important.Good luck. - Gabi
That was not really too hard a level but very challenging level! I am glad I am out of this level! I finished it with no boosters so yes it is very passable without one. Just a keen eye for potential color bombs and taking your time..some tips to help:* First priority: eliminate the move bombs. The best way to do this and what I did was you can do a color bomb + striped combo! You can also make a wrapped + striped combo on both sides and 1 in the middle part to clear jellies. But that is harder to do. After all bombs are cleared pressure is lifted of from your shoulders. * Create space to make special candies but clear the blocker in the middle covering the factory last. * Then start eliminating jellies but avoid the freeing middle blocker first because when you do that chocolate will start covering up everything. * Try to make more color bomb + striped combo to clear hard to reach jellies like in the middle surrounding the factory and the ones where the bombs are located. Good luck happy crushing!
I love the posts regarding "mixing stripes and packets" twice but not destroying the block covering the chocolate...firstly mixing said sweets is nigh on impossible...dont think ive ever mixed them twice in a game, plus when you do it always seems to curiously/cheatingly miss one bomb. Mixing the 2 sweets will also hit the chocolate blocking sweet also so i wouldnt bother. The only way i cleared the bombs everytime was to start and looking at the screen before moving, if it doesnt destroy at least a few blocks without me making a move ill restart, then if it gives me or i can easily make a brown sparkler and ONLY mix it with a stripe sweet then this usually takes out the bombs too. The annoying issue with the screen are the gaps and the lack of down stripe sweets you seem to get. its also pointless moaning about screens as most of the time tactics go out of the window and its all luck...either that or some screens have a timer wherby you have to play and fail a certain amount of times before miraculously you complete it with like 24 moves left.
Don't know what you lot are moaning about, very easy level, completed it on my second try with 14 moves remaining. Just for the record, I still haven't spent money on a single level, so it is possible
This level is not so bad. I am close to getting all the jellies every turn. My only gripe, which I've said on other levels, is that when I make a striped combo sometimes it just goes away without clearing anything. Has anyone else seen this on their phone? This has happened to me on many levels, since reaching the 400's.
Yes to the comment about striped combos having no effect! I've actually noticed several annoying bugs in the 400-level episodes.... "no moves left" board-clearing when there were moves available, candy combos not working correctly, candies not dropping correctly, candies exploding for no reason, etc. It's starting to really annoy me! Many of these levels are tricky enough without having to deal with game-play bugs on top of it.
Love the 'oh just make these combos' comments..... Anyway, persevere people as the next level is explosion city !!!!!!!!!!! Did 435 first time - absolute carnage and very good for morale!!
I thought I had finished but there was one jelly hidden under chocolate! This is a hard level. There are still combos that aren't appearing when they are supposed to, which makes it even harder! I hope someone from King is reading this blog and does something about it. We need a fighting chance! I've played about 100 games. Tried it on the PC but didn't like it. Sticking with my Android.
Thanks to those of you who suggested focusing on the middle! It worked. I finally passed this level! I got a sprinkle/stripe combo twice and made sure that before I exploded them, I brought down more of the same color as the stripe for maximum destruction. I ended with 4 lives and 2 stars. Can't wait to play 435!!!
Thanks to everyone that has posted hints. This is a hard level with all of the bombs you can't reach but I am not giving up. Just read the comment about destroying the middle. I am going to give it a try. At least this level isn't boring.
Been on this level for several days now with no luck. Most of the time I don't even get close. I am trying all of the hints.but no luck. I really need a lucky board.
I think this is where myself and candy crush part ways. Have had absolutely no fun with this game since about level 400 and can't be bothered with the cheating going on in the game - special candies activating and disappearing for no reason. So if after level 400, the aim was to suck all the enjoyment out of the game and make people stop playing then well done, mission accomplished.
Hang in there. I did find this one to be so hard. I was avoiding the middle and getting no where. Embrace the middle! Be patient. The next level 435 makes up for your frustration. It is chain reaction bliss.
Wow, very tough level. If I do somehow get lucky enough to clear the bombs on one side, I'm left with only a few moves until the bombs in the other side blow up.
In 45 games so far I've cleared the bombs ONCE!Another really really frustrating level, and I've followed the tips on here about using the centre and trying very hard not to release the chocolate while doing so, but no joy.The combinations only seem to come when the bombs are about to explode and 2/3 times I've detonated a stripe to try and clear them and it's just disappeared!It's such a shame they spoil some of these levels.But I never thought I would get through some of the earlier levels and I did so will persevere....Are we mad?
I must be doing something wrong!I've played 90 games today and only ONCE managed to clear the bombs to be able to play a full game.That can't be right surely?I've just re watched all the videos I can find on this and I've never had moves like they seem to get.....Tired now.
so, who ever gets two sprinkle balls in the 1st 3 moves? only on the video..another level that bores me to no end when I have to quit way before I use up all my moves...they give you 50 but 30 for the bombs and after 20 I still have every bomb left ...just another level that wastes my time...but of course will keep on playing...
Done over 200 games now and had TWO full games!The last episode I had over 300,000 points, 2 chocolate balls, 3 stripes to crush the bombs and still had one bomb left!Unbelievable!
Paid attention to whole board every move. Got lucky taking out 3 bombs of same color in one corner. Vertical stripes in the right spots. Many color bombs/stripe combo made it possible to take out the rest and make 3 stars. Very lucky board after several sets of lives.
Is this level even doable? I've been stuck here for days, getting bored
Finally got through this level. I had been trying to eliminate the bombs on each side using a striped and wrapped combo and never getting both sides cleared. I was lucky enough to get a striped and wrap in the middle of the board and able to bring them down all the way to the chocolate factory so that exploding them took out both sides of bombs together. After that needed some stripes and wrappers (not necessarily combos) to clear the rest of the jellies
400+ LEVELS never felt like not playing every day but i fear this level has finally done it
i had thought that 421 was the level which i would stop playing this game. But no, it seems like it is 434. Last time, i managed to create 3 colour bombs, i used 2 lollipop hammers 1 bubble gum troll booster, 1 free switch; and the result was 3 jellies left and no more moves. I think levels like this are made for have people get rid of their addictions. It worked for me it seems :)
Got through some difficult levels like 417 and 421 but now I am about to give up on CC being stuck on 434. This one is rated by me as the most boring level I have come to. All nice and easy if I was getting the right combos. Might get a speckle but no wrapped or vice versa. Watched the contrived videos where they always seem to get the right board. I reckon that the Facebook computer pre-empts every move. Thought I was good at this game having reached 434 but now the end of CC is about to come about. To add insult to injury I get nowhere using what I get with the free spin each day. Might give up.
Twice I have had two speckled balls right next to each other. When swiped together there was still a time bomb left on each side. WTF??? That's supposed to clear the board. Have spent many lives on this level, and the best I have done is 2 jellies left. I had 17 moves left and I could not get the right combination to clear them. GAH!!!I don't see how clearing the middle will get you anything. The chocolate takes over with a vengeance and leaves me worse off every time.
Yeah...time to quit cc when it isn't fun anymore. I won't delete the game, since I do enjoy going back to earlier levels that were fun, but I really have lost interest in this level, it's just not winable. I am pleased I got farther than any of my friends, but I do know when I am just wasting my time. I did delete King's Bubble Witch. I got to some unwinable level and just decided it wasn't worth it.
This level can suck balls! Been stuck on this ridiculous level for well over a month!
I sure wish it was easy to get the striped and wrapped combinations. This level is impossible! :(
Reality is certainly not a board such as the one in the video. After over 100 tries, I have only managed to get rid of the bombs once and no where near cleared the board. Have tried doing the sides & centre but combos are scarce. This level is ridiculous.!!!!
At long last I passed this. try & clear the muddle & sides by making any combo or striped possible, without breaking the choc too quickly. Work your way down form there. I admit I used 2 hammer bonus moves received on the spinning wheel or would not have passed. Goodluck. The next level is wonderful and very easy :)
I am about to go crazy with this level. I have tried everything.
How hard could this level be? There aren't even any "Removed by Moderator" comments?
This is the hardest level I have encountered. I have played over a 100 times and have only cleared the bombs twice. I have tried all the suggestions and no luck. I cannot seem to get any combos and the stripes seem to come in the middle not being effective on the bombs.
I finally did it. Use a free chocolate booster and keep getting in and out of the game until you get the chocolate landing right next to a potential stripe. Activate it then it should clear most if not all bombs. Then take your time to make combo to clear the jelly on the left and right first. Careful not to release the middle chocolate too early.
I think that this might be one of those levels that's easier on the computer. I struggled for days on the iPad and then beat it in just a few tries on the computer. That might also explain the wide variety of comments in this level - everything from evil to not-that-bad.
Can someone explain to me why, when I had 2 chocolate bombs next to each other, it STILL didn't clear out all of the bombs (it left 2 of them).Am I missing some fundamental piece of strategy where my moves don't work as planned? If so, what's the point of trying if the expected result isn't always guaranteed? I might as well resort to being a monkey flipping around candy until luck allows me to win.
^^ * 2 chocolate balls (not bombs)
Not really sure what king is trying to achieve here - would think you now need people saying what a good game not what a waste of time. Was going to try and reach the end but this game means I really have had enough, bored with waiting for the right board rather than being allowed to play. Will tell all my cc friends to not bother going further forward as it just gets worse. What a shame for something which started as a decent challenge. Will check if my comment appears as never seen one posted yet !!
This is the best web site for help with CC. Thank you all
I finished this level on my 2nd attempt. I played it on my laptop. Within the first 5 moves, I mixed a striped candy with a speckled ball. It wiped out all the bombs.Got lots of stripes and mixed one stripe and wrapped candy. Must have been the lucky board. I was left with one jelly and 8 moves remaining. The jelly was right above the chocolate spinner, so I used the free lollipop booster. Very happy this level is completed.
I used to enjoy CC, but since I have hit the 400 levels they are just so boring... Tic-Tac-Toe would be more rewarding. Level 434 is just another low skill, awaiting around for that 1 in a 100 board that gives you half a chance... so boring. I'm afraid I'm another CC player that would actively discourage anybody from even starting this game. The more you get into the game, you can see that the game designers struggled to fine new rewarding boards, so settled for making near impossible targets...
Anyone who makes it into the 400 levels knows how to play candy crush... Been on this level (434) two weeks, and I am yet to get past the bombs exploding. King have turned candy crush from a fun game into a mental torture, unleashed upon the world's population. I hope that in some of these strange litigation country's (like the states), they get sued for mental curtly. King introduced this game upon the world's population that was initially fun, but also very very addictive, and then when get hooked, they change the focus in the later levels to frustration and mental torture....
after reading all the comments i had cleared all the bombs but one so used the free lollipop hammer and continued with the game then i had one jelly left and luckily one more free lollipop hammer so used it too! good luck!
I took thirty-six tries to get this level. The videos here should come with the disclaimer, "this level was recorded x times before I finally got this lucky board." Luck is a big factor in this one. In my first thirty-five attempts, I cleared the bombs just three times. In two of those, I had over thirty moves left but I could not clear a single additional jelly in the lower corners where the bombs were. In one of those, I got a wrapped/striped combo low enough in the middle to take out the bombs on both sides, and later, a striped/sparkly combo that did not remove a single jelly in the lower corners. That told me luck was not on my side. Luck came in the thirty-sixth attempt, but I still needed a hammer I won on the booster wheel. I got a wrapped/wrapped combo that blew out the bombs in the lower right--the wrapped/wrapped are great for that--and a wrapped/striped combo to take care of the left side. That gave me thirty moves to clear jelly, and I did have a striped/sparkly combo that actually helped. In the end, though, with two moves left, I used the hammer to clear a candy that allowed a three-in-a-row meld to form and take out that last jelly. It was worth it to use the booster to get out of this awful level. This is a luck level, since there is limited space at the top to form combos, and you need lots of them to get this level.
Is this a fucking joke???? I'm so sick of levels where all they want is your fn money cuz the only way to win is by buying boosters!!! Sorry poor people like myself this game isn't for you
