Candy Crush Saga Level 562

Tips for level 562 Candy Crush Saga
This is one of the difficult levels in this section of Candy Crush as the cream is so thick and needs hitting several times.
The conveyor brings the candies down from the top left and then across the board above the cream blocks.
Bombs also come down on the conveyor with a count of 9 so your priority has to be to get rid of those before they count down.
The cream needs hitting a lot! So some heavy duty combos are needed..
Only 5 colours on the board so making combos isn't difficult. 
Colour bombs are good, either with stripes or wraps, and stripe/wrap combos.
Look carefully at what's coming down the conveyor and use it to help make your combos.

Yes, this is tricky, but it only took me 5 tries. Got lucky. You need lots of combos of any type.

Looks like we've got a broken level here. Way too much icing, let alone the jelly underneath. And to top it off, bombs that fall when inevitably needing to clear the left 2 columns of the board. No thank you.

If there's a time to quit (or take a hiatus) while on top, may I suggest this level.

I'm having a real hard time with this level. I have been playing it for a week and haven't even come close.

It's a tough one, but fun for now, so I'll keep trying :-)

Got close a few times. This level was very tough. I finally decided to use some of my free spin items. I started with the fish and used one lollipop at the end to win. 4 days on this one. Been a while a level took this long.

I just passed this level with 3 stars, no boosters. Chocolate bombs with wrapped candies did LOTS of damage for this level.

I have been on this level for a week now and am getting tired of playing it. I can't even come close to completing it. BORING! Maybe one day I will get a lucky board.

I don't know how anyone has passed this level. There are not near enough move to complete it. This is so frustrating, it makes you want to give up. This is no longer any fun.

This level is becoming my new 147. It's even worse that I can't play it on my phone. Grrr.

I've been on this level over a week and am convinced this one is designed to make you purchase the extra moves. The only time I've come close is when friends have sent the 3 extra moves.

After a week, Ive come close once and wouldnt pay. At this point Ill play it a few times a day and not obsess, but its really boring. Combos dont do anything with all the layers.

Have to agree, this is a tough level and getting boring. May be the last of CCS for this player. Maybe I'll go back to level 1 and start over, that would be fun!

I am beginning to think there are no lucky boards on this level. Two weeks of playing and no luck. It would be a lot more fun if you thought you had a chance to beat this one. Like one of the other comments above, I have started playing a few times a day. It is no longer fun.

this was a tough one, i had 1 jelly left so i got the extra moves and still had to use the daily spin lollipop hammer to win! some games i barely got to play with the timed bombs! good luck!

Anonymous said...

I haven't got close enough to use the lollipops. Even with several speckled striped combos I don't get close enough!

Is ther a way to stop the bombs on this level?

Anonymous said...

I am stuck here as well. Mostly because they have not added levels to the Android phones yet. It's been over 3 weeks since the levels hit other systems. Why???? I only get 5 lives on the computer, where I can reset on my phone and get 5 new lives immediately. This level has everything to do with how the intial board is laid out. If you don't like what you see, hit the back button! Lots of combos are key.

Anonymous said...

It seems like you can stop the bombs by trying (haha) not to knock out the candies and bombs when they are on the left side of the board

Anonymous said...

I agree, if you can stay away from the left side till you clear some room do it. They only fall when they have room to drop. Tuff level, still trying.

This level is ridiculous! Been at it a week and can't even come close!

Took about 30 tries, but got it. Very hard level. Guess you gotta get lucky with it. Good luck to all.

frustrating but i will keep trying

Got so bored with this that when I finally got down to 3 jellies left I bought extra moves and passed it. 69p well spent as far as I was concerned as my many previous times had got nowhere near. Only tips are self-evident, kill the bombs and make as many special candies as possible, but if you have got to this level you know that! AS

OMG other pure evil, soul destroying level. King your really are a very spiteful company.

Officially my worst level, must of tried a 100 times, only got close just the one time. Not fun any more, just pure frustration.

Anonymous said...

I got this one on the tenth try, after nine tries in which I was not even close and often lost to the bombs. In the winning attempt, I had one stripe/sparkly combination and three wrapped/striped ones, but what worked was getting regular wraps into the lower part and detonating those. They did a lot of damage, especially towards the end. Also, it was my lucky board because only two or three moves were wasted strictly dealing with bombs. Otherwise, the moves went to clearing blocking cream and jelly. Even so, I needed a lollipop hammer (from the bonus wheel) to get the last jelly.

I have tried and tried on this level!! Cannot even come close, I use the combos and try to make every move count, no luck!!! Ugg!!!

Won the jackpot on the bonus wheel so that helped a lot. Very tedious level.

another tough level!

Hardest level so far---- seems impossible to me!

I have tried everything on this level! I get plenty of stripes,wraps and sparkles. Nothing clears this board with the moves you have. Officially hate this level. :(

I thought some of the other levels were difficult, but this one takes first prize. No matter how many special candies and combos I get, the bombs on the conveyor belt defeat me. It is nearly impossible to get a stripe move to be exactly where a bomb is on the conveyor. Even if I can delay them dropping on the belt, they inevitably drop and then I get stuck. I guess I have to wait for the CC gods to grant me enough special candies to knock out the bombs and cremes.

Anonymous said...

Absolutely pathetic level, have now spent a month of my life wasting my time on this level. CC or King try to sort this level out, will delete this app and any other game from all my platforms. Bored beyond belief! How I managed to write this without any expletives is beyond me too!

dirty vegas said...

Brilliant level ,I love the tr avelator ,it makes it interesting ,been on level 562 for two days now and nearly cleared it a few times , I've found that clearing the creams on the right hand side first has given me the best chances .happy crushing peeps #thatisall

dirty vegas said...

Day 4 and its getting harder ,while I could make loads of combos the first two days they seem to have dried up ,most of the time I can hardly clear the bombs and clear any creams , doesnt help that my partner passed this level on his 5th try , how can some pass with ease and others like me be stuck for days on end .

Is this level easier on PC or on mobile? I have been stuck for a month. Help!

Anonymous said...

I am going to say this level is easier on the PC. I did not have access to my PC for 2 weeks... never came close on my phone or tablet. I've come somewhat closer in the 10 tries I've done on my PC. BUT... still not close enough to use a hammer or any other means to defeat it. Also, I noticed the mobile devices give you 5 more moves than the PC version...

This is the first time I feel like giving up, fed up now.

Early strategy: as many vertical shooters and stripe/wrap combos as possible. Every turn that can make a vertical stripe make one. If no verticals are available, make horizontals. Only combo them if you have no other special candy options. You need most of them to ignite themselves, so dont spend turns setting them off unless you have no other special candies to make. You need to swap color bombs and stripes to win, so any stripe you make could be in proximity of a color bomb later. Stripes on the corner of the board are more valuable, so make those a priority when multiple options are present. There aren't enough turns to waste them destroying bombs, so bombs need to destroy themselves or use a well placed horizontal shooter to take out 3 or 4 at once. When I beat it, i used only 1 turn with the purpose of destroying a bomb that was low. Also, focus on the right side of the board. The left side will have eggs dropping all game, but the right side needs your own combos to get through. Bombs only drop when you destroy candies off the far left, so focusing on the right side minimizes new bomb production. At turn 30, you should have candies a row or two below the conveyor in some places. At this point, its easy to start hacking away at meringue, but thats the wrong move. Keep making stripes, and take opportunities to make horizontal stripes below the conveyor. By turn 20 you should be 3-4 levels deep in some places, while the sides and corners are still stout. There are only 5 colors, so once the board opens up, there should be combos to make every turn. Make sure to make combos in areas that need them when there are multiple options. Once you get below the conveyor, a wrap/wrap combo is the best move. When i beat it, i got a wrap/wrap 2 rows under the conveyor that decimated the center of the board. In the last 10 turns, the middle should be basically clear. Horizontal shooters across the bottom rows are your best shot. Also, wrappers in the corners. The conveyor is still churning eggs on the left side, so if you can open 2 or more at once, try it and fish for a killer combo. Special combos with fish are very opportune in the last few moves to dig at the corners. With the board wide open, specials should be easy to come by, so make the right ones that can get into the corners. Centered vertical stripes are no longer useful. Most specials above the conveyor arent helpful anymore either. Ideally, you make special candies while also dealing direct hits to the meringue. This can only be done below the conveyors. With less than 10 turns, any meringue with 4+ hits left is a real problem, and needs to be knocked down quickly. You have 2 levels of jelly under it still! At 8 turns, bombs dont matter, stop detroying new ones! At 5 turns you should know if you have still have a chance to close it out. I got one last color bomb/stripe to clear all but 2-3 jellies with 3 turns left. I cleaned up the stragglers. My final total of special combos was 3 color bomb/stripe combos, 1 wrap/wrap combo, 2 stripe/wrap combos, a wrap in the right corner, a fish with 5 turns left, 2 color bombs without combos that detonated themselves, and countless stripes. Best starting move I found was either a color bomb (duh) or a vertical stripe into the conveyor, which hits 4 meringue in the process, for those playing mobile. Good luck!

Another tip: Dont make combos or detonate specials that the conveyor will detonate for you. With only 40 turns, you have to work WITH the conveyor. Let it create specials and create cascades for you. So dont use turns making combos the conveyor will make for you a turn or 2 later. But also: dont just waste a turn because the conveyor is going to create a combo next turn. If you have no good moves except igniting a special that the conveyor would do for you next turn, make it anyway. You cant waste turns, maybe igniting it will setup something else for the conveyor. But if you have other moves, do them and let the conveyor help you.

cherylcandycrush here.
Thank god I didn't look in here before I did the level. I was the only one who found the level before this tricky, so when I got to this level and saw the layers of ice I thought-I'll be here a while, too.

But I got through in 2 turns. Mainly I was kept busy killing bombs, but the system seems to generate a lot of special candies out of nowhere (if you are lucky) as well as the surprise candies and I was able to detonate a few combos down the bottom.

Mainly I looked out for chances to make or combine combos as well as kill bombs.
I think I got lucky, but the right board will come along for you, too. Hang in there.

This is an absolutely awful level. There are simply not enough turns and the bombs are often unable to be matched.

I finally got it out after about 60 attempts. I really thought about every move and avoided wasting moves. In the end, I bought 5 extra turns but only needed two (as I had a wrap in the jelly, which I triggered with a stripe). But I did end up with 3 stars.

My tip: Go for wraps, as many as you can
1. A single wrap does more damage than a single stripe
2. A wrap will destroy surrounding bombs
3. Don't trigger those wraps unless a nearby bomb is about to explode
4. Often a stripe will trigger whatever wraps lies in its path, and thus leave a trail of damage
5. Let the wraps naturally drop so as to do more damage down below
6. A wrap gives two bursts and thus two lots of damage

Also, you can kinda control the bomb dispenser. When you clear candy on the vertical part of the conveyor more bombs will drop. Also, when you clear the conveyor with a horizontal stripe more bombs will drop. So avoid these at all costs unless a bomb is about to explode

This level is so tough, definitely up there. After maybe 2 weeks on this level, playing daily, I finally passed! What I learnt, stick to the right hand side, any move as far away from the dropping bombs as possible, make vertical striped candies as priority, and just make as many combos as possible. Just keep trying, you'll eventually get a favourable board.

Anonymous said...

It's been said before and it needs to be said again....ignore the bombs and concentrate on the objective, which is to eliminate jelly. This was my only strategy when i passed first time with 3 stars. Try to make a special on every turn and the board will do the rest for you.

This level is a piece of crap! I don't mind hard levels when the possibility of winning is within reach. I can't even get close to winning which makes this level BORING as hell.

I passed today within several tries. the only advice i can give is to focus on the right hand side to avoid bringing more bombs from the vertical conveyor belt. you might wanna quit the game if you went through half of the moves without breaking most of the center board icing. the last moves seem to be crucial with the unreachable jellies specialy the corner ones. the best combos here are wrapped/wrapped then wrapped/stripe and later on the usual sprinkel ones, good luck everyone :)

You just have to wait for the lucky board and recognize it. Candy Crush will determine when you win the game. It took me 2 1/2 weeks to complete. Kind of weird... One of my hidden candies turned out to be a bomb, with a coating on it. I was going to use a lollipop hammer to clear it, when the game complete process started. I guess that coating is not considered jelly. So happy this level is finished.

I just watched the video on this page and I noticed that this person never went to the upper left column at all. I'm going to give that a try and report back.
