How to beat timed levels in Candy Crush Saga


Do you struggle with Candy Crush Saga timed levels? Timed levels are a part of the Candy Crush game that a lot of people struggle with.. Me included!
But if you follow a few simple guidelines you'll pass timed levels in Candy Crush Saga without too much stress!

  1.   LOOK.... Before you start to play take a few seconds to look around the board and see if there are any chances for stripes or wraps, or maybe even a colour bomb! Those few seconds at the start will pay off.
  2.  THINK...  Don't just blindly switch anything you see! Try to work at the bottom if you can so you can take advantage of any cascades caused by your moves.
  3.  PLAN....While you're making one move be planning your next, keep looking all the time, don't wait for the candies to stop moving before you look for another move. Try to anticipate where the candies will land and be ready as soon as they stop.
  4.  +5 Candies....Candies which fall down with a number in them give you extra time so should be matched if possible! Don't miss them, they could mean the difference between winning and losing. (see image) Extra time candies will only fall if you get cascades by matching combos or colour bombs, if you only make matches of 3 they will only fall every few moves and it won't be enough to keep the game moving.
  5.  RELAX....Before you start take a deep breath and relax! The worst thing you can do on timed levels is to panic. Just play as if it's a normal game but just a little faster!


 Finally, if there are bombs on the timed level watch your points, once you have enough points for a star and the bombs are getting close to zero, just stop playing and let the time run out!

Another tip: if you have bombs with little chance to be cleared before they go off, check if you've reached the minimum score to pass the level. If you have, just let the time run out.

Another tip about bombs: they score REALLY high points when you successfully match them. Use one of your lives to play really slowly and watch the score when do each: make a simple 3-match, activate a stripe, activate a wrapped candy, then match a bomb. I forget the numbers, but the bomb is like 10 times the value of the others.

So if your game board gives you a choice to either keep the bombs in their generation chamber or let them loose, try letting them loose. Match several of them, get to the needed score, then like the previous commenter said, just sit still and let the time run out.

I won this game on my phone, but it said I didn't! I got way over 200,000, but I got lots of extra time thingies, and is that not Kosher? Do you really have to do it in 30 seconds?

I really hate timed levels, I'm so bad at them. I just panic and freeze. The one i'm doing now is only 30 seconds and I've been on it for days. Wish I could get past it.

Absolutely hate the timed levels as well. These levels took the fun out of a relaxing and enjoyable game. Gonna have to quit and find something else where I don't have to feel rushed. Haven't passed the last level in weeks-not worth the agravation
