Candy Crush Saga Level 677

How to pass level 677 Candy Crush Saga

We have been informed by King that this level will be changed with the next update, which will be within the next day or so.

The answer to the question of how to pass level 677 seems to be to use as many boosters as it takes!
One week after the release of this episode there is only one video on YT made without boosters.
I only know one or two people who have passed it without boosters so it seems level 677 is yet another level designed to make players buy boosters.
I found that the best way to get through this level was to almost ignore the stripes provided along the sides and work on making stripes in the center part of the board.
Just take a few seconds to check on whether the stripes were unlocked and move any candies off the conveyor that are likely to detonate them too early.
If you can get stripes onto the conveyor it may be possible to get them together that way.
If you do have boosters from the wheel I would suggest you save as many hands and lollies as you can. The hands are useful to move 2 stripes together and the lollies can do the same by knocking out a candy below.
One member of our FB group has suggested leaving the cream blockers and locked stripes until you have another stripe ready to match with them before unlocking.
But it seems to be just a case of playing very carefully so as not to inadvertantly ruin any combos you are setting up.
The video below is made without boosters.

between trying to get 10 stipe combos and the bombs i don't see how anyone got through it even with boosters!! This might be the end of the road for me!

Anonymous said...

This level is impossible!! King, if you want us to use boosters, give them away!!! I'm sure we've spent plenty on the game already! So over this...level 700 and that's it for me...

Not enough moves, too many bombs, this level is just off the charts. The closest I have came is 4 combos left. Virtually impossible, but I have nothing else to do once this level is completed, but wait for the next one, so I will play and hope for a lucky board!

Anonymous said...

Seems the way to win is to use a bunch of gold bars and "play on". I'm not playing anymore until they modify these unwinnable levels. Stuck on 383 in Dreamworld too.

glo said...

I have played all the way to 677 without complaining or even posting anything. I needed to stop playing this game anyway, but you can buy all the boosters and still not win this one. King will have to modify it before I will spend another penny on this game. this level is the worst of all so far.

Anonymous said...

Waiting until you modify 677...stupid and impossible!

i agree, i have been playing this one and the best i have gotten is 6 combo's left. there doesn't seem to be a way to get anywhere with all the bombs and getting 10 striped combos is ridiculous! I have also not complained to much, some of the levels were extremely difficult but nowhere as frustrating as this one, this one is not even fun!! I hope they can resolve and fix this one, because even with boosters (and i have some from the daily spins) i can't even think of any of those that would help. I would not pay to play on either so if this is not beatable this is the end of candy crush for me!

Anonymous said...

I passed the level with using a hammer and then 2 gold bars (first time I ever used). Flat out terrible level! It needs at least 10 more moves to pass it. Now I'm stuck at lvl 679, another horrendously difficult level but it's doable without boosters at least.

Anonymous said...

After watching the video that won without boosters, I tried a similar strategy -- relying more on the conveyer belt to detonate the bombs and concentrated more on making stripes. I had just 4 combos left with 15 moves, but the final moves did not fall into place and wound up losing with 3 combos left. This was just my 3rd try, so I feel like perhaps this level is winnable with some careful planning and some luck.

Almost threw my laptop...677 is impossible! Ugh!!

Anonymous said...

impossible level...the walkthru was just luck...you need to concentrate on the bombs too much. King needs to revamp this level so that you don't have to spend endless amount of money for boosters that don't even help half the time anyway. First time in over a year that I actually am ready to quit for good...if they don't fix this level they will lose countless amount of players.

Yup, reckon I'm outta here now too! No skill, no fun. Just impossible to clear.

I've played the level one hundred times and the best i managed to do is 2 combos left once and 3 combos left twice. It's impossible unless you are extremely lucky. Bombs distract you, other combos destroy what you have prepared... It's a mess.

Anonymous said...

Total agree all comments above. I'll stop play this game. It is no fun anymore.

So many years playing the game...and King reached us to the point to give everything away!!!!!

yesterday 1 combo left without boosters and 2 moves short to finish it, with a free 3+ moves booster would have worked out. it's possible but hard.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone won the daily will jackpot. Is possible to win?
I play daily and never have won.

Leslie said...

I watched the video, too and noticed that the player did not go after the bombs. They seemed to take care of themselves, for the most part, as I concentrated on not opening the stripes on the sides and worked one combo at a time ignoring making stripes that would not help. I was finally able to make 2 of those side combos. Got down to 3 moves, one stripe on the board with only needing 1 more combo. It took so long to get that close, I used a "hand switch" to get that last stripe in line for the win.

Anonymous said...

Agree with all of these, I've tried the level a few dozen times and not gotten any closer than 3 combos left to make. Level is too difficult and has zero fun factor. Keep moving that needle all the way to the left when they ask. I'm going to play something else until this level gets changed; it's not at all enjoyable to play.

Anonymous said...

End of Candy crush for me Bye Bye far too hard no fun. Impossible.
END OF THE ROAD.

Anonymous said...

I've gotten to 4 combos left, its ridiculous I make up lots of stripe candies hoping that I have more chances of getting 2 together but the thing is that when 1 stripe is in action it damages everything you have set up, what a waste of time and I also agree with the comment on level 383 dw that is also impossible I cant waste anymore time on these 2 stupid impossible level, makes level 578 seem easy now doesnt it atleast I managed to do that in 3 days, I am stuck on this for 5 days now

Anonymous said...

Just to clarify what Leslie said -- the bombs don't really take care of themselves. Use strategy to avoid having to use moves to detonate them. For example, look ahead to see if the conveyer movement will take care of the bombs, or when you use a stripe/stripe combo, pick the direction to detonate the bomb. I find that most of the time, I don't need to waste moves to detonate them, but occasionally I still need to. That said, I've never come closer than 3 combos left.

Elena said...

Hate this level, the closest i've got to is 2 combos left, Grrr so irritated with this level and with 383 in Dreamworld...

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking this might be the level that takes me out. It's just not any fun.

Anonymous said...

I have never commented before, I don"t mind spending a few dollars to pass a level, but this level seems impossible without spending many, many dollars, which I won't do. So unless you are extremely, extremely lucky you can't pass. I do spend a few dollars every month for lower levels which i replay for score or stars, but unless level 677 changes I will quit playing altogether and that will lose a few dollars each month

Anonymous said...

I feel compelled to throw my 2 cents in just in case someone from King actually reads this blog. I have already given up on Dream World trying to pass Level 383 and I will not give this level any more time. I will occasionally buy 5 moves or use my free boosters if I am very close to completing the level, but after many, many, many tries the closest I have come is no moves and 3 combos left. There are too many bombs and too many combos to reasonably complete this level and have fun doing it. I am finally burned out on Candy Crush!

Rob said...

Aaarrrggghhh. I think candy crush has finally beat me. Can not pass this level, the best i can do is 8 combos, i've used everything i had been building up for the past few months. It is going to take an awful lot of luck to ever get this level, if i can be bothered hanging around

Anonymous said...

Still impossible...

Anonymous said...

Best after 50+ tries (stopped counting) is 2 combos left... really seems impossible.

Anonymous said...

i have tried leaving the edges alone but they still get destroyed by themselves for some reason that i am not even going to use my brain to work out and use the stripe/stripe combo to eliminate the bombs but it is still very difficult, no strategy works on this level, its really really difficult but I am not gonna give up king and I will never buy boosters from you no matter how difficult the level so there. I have won the daily booster once only to the anon on the somewhere above comment.

Thanks King, I needed a good reason to quit and not waste any more money on this game. This Impossible level is a great reason!

Anonymous said...

only two times i get left with one more combo before left move(after 150++ games). but almost impossible, still not pass

just wait till they modify the rules, 8combos make more sense, or 45 moves

THIS LEVEL SUCKS!!!!!!!
there is no possible way to do that many combos in 35 moves. Probably time to go play with a cookie

Anonymous said...

There have been ridiculous levels before this one but this is off the charts. We are all EXPERT players to have gotten this far. You would have to match every THIRD move to make this - NO WAY!
TO make this reasonable you would have to either get 99 moves to start or have to match maybe 5 sets of stripes. The bombs add insult to injury as you have to waste moves getting rid of them. Removing one color and the bombs would be an OK fix too. I'm not even going to bother unless there is a fix/hack for this level.

Anonymous said...

Must be a simple money making scheme for them. 677 is stupidly difficult, almost impossible without spending loads of money on it. Never posted before now but 677 means I'm quitting this and means they'll get no more money from me either.

Anonymous said...

I hope "Candy Crush" monitors this page (and similar others) because level 677 is impossible, and they know it. It was made this way purposely to sell boosters. However, this level will ruin their franchise, and lose may loyal players (which obvious since have gotten this far). It not like we're novices, we know how to play (we're at level 677), but this one will drive me and other away.

Caroline said...

This level is so freaking annoying!!!!

Vijay said...

This lvl is simply impossible. Simple maths - making 20 stripes twenty moves, combining them another ten moves, that leaves us with only five moves. All this assuming that the stripes are made next to each other, which in itself is impossible. Then there are bombs to be taken care off.
In the best board I got, I still had two combos left.
I will wait for a fix, else will have no option but to quit.

Anonymous said...

I wil not play anymore after today...too much time anyway...not fun anymore...also, the jackpot wheel is a fluke! King never intended that we hit the thing, maybe one in 100 people...a shame, I really used to enjoy playing...bye King...

King wants to sell boosters. I haven't played this level for the last two days. Highly impossible level. Requires luck of entire life in this single level.

I have gotten down to 1 combo left and had 5 moves and it made strip activated....sigh i have been playing this level for more than a week with booster and no booster...i got closer with no boosters

Anonymous said...

It's just an insanely dumb level and pretty much impossible unless you've got extreme luck in how the pieces fall or you're willing to use a ton of boosters.

To add insult to injury, after we all sit at this level for weeks, then cave and spend money, King will modify the level and make it easier for the great masses of players who arrive after us, just like they've done before.

After all the bugs I found in a previous level, and this ridiculous crap in this level, I'm tired of being a paying beta tester for King.

Does King realize how many fans it's losing? We play for fun not frustration...677.is ridiculous to many including myself...really losing interest in the game...

I am over it as well. It's impossible and even spending a lot money on boosters is no guarantee of a win Apart from that, it's just plain boring. Have found another game that is much more fun and it ain't a King game.

Agree with all of you. Level 677 in Candy Crush and 383 in Dreamworld - my time to quit these games. It's been fun - and I have definitely made King rich, but no more. And, btw, I Did get a Jackpot in the daily spin once.

Anonymous said...

Terrible level! I refuse to buy anymore gold bars!!!

Anonymous said...

Just passed this level without using booster. It can be done but I must have done about 200 attempts on it. Need to be very careful about every move and together with a huge amount of luck. Don't wait any booster on this level unless you are nearly running out of move with only got 1 combo to go and you see hammer or hand swap can help. It can be done although it is more than insanely hard!

Boring and unnecessary. Boring. Boring.

Bye Candy Crush. 677 Level is purely designed to make you money !!!!!

King! Watch out! The person working for you that designed this level is really working for a rival game company trying to get people to quit Candy Crush! And he's succeeding! Probably the same person designed that fake wheel that never ever lands on jackpot.

Anonymous said...

This level is utterly impossible and even when I've bought and used boosters, it doesn't get me any further.

King you need to fix this level, and soon, as I will definitely stop playing, as will loads of other people...you have made one totally boring, frustrating and impossible to pass, level and it's spoiled Candy Crush for me.

Anonymous said...

I also have spent days on this level and I am not even coming close to clearing it. I think I will quit too.

Anonymous said...

like so many others here, I've never posted on here before, but yes, this level and 383 dreamworld are impossible. I can't come close in either, and I'm not above paying money if I've played for a few days on a level and come really close, but not even close with either of these levels. We are expert players to have come this far and have to quit because King gives us stupid impossible levels. Either less combos or lose the bombs for this level!

Anonymous said...

it's doable .nailed it with 3 moves booster . tried it a lot .good luck everyone

I have to agree with all of the comments, while I have enjoyed even the insanely hard puzzles, this is the last one. Goodbye KING games! Plenty of challenging but doable games out there.

This level is ridiculous to be even in the game, it is almost impossible even with some boosters, i think it is stupid strategy to try forcing their players who made it till here to buy boosters... 2 more days and if i don't pass it then that's it was fun!

Anonymous said...

I see why King's income from this game has been declining at a rapid pace for quite a while now and levels such as this and 383 dreamworld (which I'm also stuck on) are to blame.

KTZ said...

played over 50 times closest I could get was 4 combos left, ended up getting 10 extra moves to complete it. Only the second time I've bought anything terrible level.

Anonymous said...

This level is absolutely ridiculous. I have spent money on boosters and extra moves here and there, I don't mind it, but this level is just crazy. I feel like I'd have to spend $50 to get past it. Can't even get 5 combos, let alone TEN! Please modify this level, it's making me hate Candy Crush.

Looks like most difficult level to clear so far.

Anonymous said...

Good bye Candy Crush. This level is not only impossible but boring. Both Dreamworld and Candy Crush are getting harder and harder with each new episode. I don't mind having challenging levels but at least make them doable without taking weeks to get a lucky board to complete. I didn't think I would ever say this but "I am done". Candy Crush developers, look at all of the people on this post alone that have quit.

Anonymous said...

Even if the bombs were removed from the game entirely, it's totally implausible to get close. My criteria of a good game vs horribly sucky, is if I can't even get close no matter if everything is going right...it's.too.hard. thus sucky. Even if you add 5-15 lives to the game, you don't.get.close.

I've gotten down to 4. I probably would of needed another 40 lives to get them all made.

So until they make this semi reasonable I'll go hang in the night time and hopefully I don't run into another awful level there.

I miss the days where you would try for a few days, give up and go over to the blogs and the blog would help you catch on to the way to possibly win the game. Is this the issue Candy Crush? Because it sucks the fun out of games for no one to be able to get passed them.

Anonymous said...

One of the most frustrating aspects of this level is the way any stripies are detonated by other moves. The rate of this happening in this level is heaps higher than in other levels. After a week at this level, I'm well and truly over it. Not playing any more. I have better things to do with my life!

Anonymous said...

I have been stuck, somrtimes for weeks, on certain levels but it was fun and you knew you could do it in the end. Level 677 is impossible and certainly not fun. Please let me know if it becomes more 'doable' I may condider trying again.

Anonymous said...

I got it down to 2 combos left (without boosters). I hate using boosters and still losing. :)

Anonymous said...

If you don't want to spend $$$, you will probably not beat this level. I told myself if I got down to 2 combos, I would go for it. Here is the strategy I used to pass. Most important...Do not focus on the bombs. They will by and large take care of themselves. Stick to the middle of the board but don't neglect the locked stripes. They are valuable and not too hard to match...just keep an eye on them. Take your time and make sure you match stripes together correctly so you don't detonate precious stripes. This is also a good way to get rid of bombs w/o wasting a move.
Having said all of that...you need the lucky board and play it flawlessly. I used 2 sets of extra moves and 2 hand switches at the very end. After you finish this level the rest of the game is really easy.

Nate said...

I finally beat it!! I figured i had a good run, so i strategically planned the final moves using 5 hand swaps and 4 loli bombs with 5 moves remaining to get the last 5 combos. I'm glad it worked and i didnt waste my goodies. Good luck y'all

Anonymous said...

Finally passed this level after 3 days. Had a good board fall then got the last 2 with 1 hand swap and 3 lolly hammers. Glad it didn't beat me but no fun. Good luck if you're still stuck.

Anonymous said...

This level is pure crap. You actually need 30 moves (20 to create the striped candies, 10 to combine them, and that is without having to move anything together). Maybe its purpose is to just get successful players to stop playing.

As always, Mr. Toffee's advice and the in-game tips are worthless (or worse) and should be ignored.

Anonymous said...

Finally beat it! The ONLY way I was able to do it was by getting a generous board that helped me knock out 7 combos. You will have to use a couple of hand switches and most likely at least a lollipop hammer. Pissed me off on this one cause I had gotten 30 free tokens from King (not sure if anyone else got this awhile back) had 9 left and accidentally used it on a previous try on this level with no way of winning.

This level is pure bull however. I thought you can beat all these levels without a booster, but I guess not.

Been on this level for 7 days and the best I can do is get 4 combos. This isnt an enjoyable game anymore. Will try again but will not play when I get a full 5 plays

Good to read all the frustrations about 677 and dreamworld 383, I'm not the only one!
Very annoying, maybe it is omen to quit!

Anonymous said...

My advice to anybody struggling is just to be miraculously lucky and use every booster in your arsenal for the final combinations. This may seem to be useless advice, and it hasn't worked for me, but then all the advice I've read about this level so far has been equally as useless. If this level isn't modified then I will be on level 677 for remainder of my time on Earth.

Jojo said...

I posted yesterday that I had passed this level finally getting the last 2 with a hand swap and 3 lolly hammers. If you are still stuck on this level I would not use any other boosters other than these 2 as you just end up blowing up the stripe combo's that you are able to make before you can combine them. Not much help I know but you never know. I have never bought boosters, I just spin the wheel every day whilst waiting for the new levels to open up.

Bob said...

Just got through this level using no boosters at all as I did not have any. The only advice I can give is to get lucky and to use your stripe stripe combinations to clear the bombs and the blocks between the other stripe candies. It is possible if you get very lucky. I got it with 2 turns to go and actually left one stripe-stripe combo on the board at the end.

Anonymous said...

This is my 1st post ever & this level is infuriating !! Ive been on this level for atleast 3 days closest Ive come is 2 combos left. Ive never spent a dime on CandyCrush & never will. Tho I spin the wheel daily...It hasnt stopped on a hand or lolli for over 2 weeks...its almost like it knows what you need to win. Oh well..I will hope to get lucky..soon :(

Anonymous said...

After a week trying this level, finally get through!
i feel that the board has been modify a bit easier as compare with few days when i started to explore this level, may be the king.com has done something about it.
though i still have to use 1 lollipop hammer + 4 switch gloves to achieved the goal.
I have been collected the boosters day by day spinning wheel and not using them along the progress, therefore i have a lot of boosters to spend for this level.
Look like without boosters, getting pass this level is not easy.
good luck.

Anonymous said...

After about a week's tries, I finally got through this morning without using any boosters or free 3-moves from friends. I even had 1 move left and 3 stars.

I followed Ms. Cookies' advice by concentrating in the middle to make as many stripes as possible but you still have to pay attention on those locked stripes and the conveying belt. As soon as there is a chance, you will match one with an unlocked stripe. Plan carefully using the combos to unlock the stripes, or hit the blocks in between the locked/unlocked stripes and hit the bombs at the same time. Then the chance of getting another combo is higher.

When I did not get rid of 4 combos in my first 10 moves, I quit and started another board. In my recent 50+ tries, when I got down to 3 or 2 combos in a game quite frequently, I knew that if I focused and be more careful, I would eventually pass and I did. At times when I made a lot of stripes but I wasn't able to match any of them, I quit and played again. At times when I triggered a cascade and lost all of the stripes I made, I quit and started again. After about 250 tries, I finally got a lucky board.

This is how I got through.

Anonymous said...

This is the end of Candy Crush Saga for me. I have been stuck before on some levels that were near impossible but managed to save a few boosters and got there in the end. This level is ridiculous, I've played over a hundred times using all the saved boosters and still have got nowhere near to the target of 10 striped matching candies. I think now that king are giving daily boosters away they have to make their money somehow so they have introduced levels such as this where you will be spending lots of money for extra moves and boosters to get somewhere near passing this level. Well, I will no longer be playing as a game is supposed to be challenging while being fun and this level just makes me angry and stressed. I've tried different strategies but nothing works and it's mainly pure luck and then if you think there's a chance purchasing more and more extra moves and boosters. Goodbye Candy crush.

Well, glad to see so many of us are stuck at 677 and Dreamworld 383. I won't give up, but I'm playing my daughters CC at 491, because I do have a chance on those levels. 677 seems to me being the most impossible level sofar. I was stuck at 350 and around the 417/421 levels, those were very hard without having any booster back than(!). I don't play that often anymore because I simply do not like it when I feel I have no chance at all. Anybody who came this far understands the game, but it's just frustrating and I can understand people to quit the game at these levels. I won't give up, but I also won't buy boosters. I'll just hope the will give more moves, or eleminate the bomd or whatever in the near future, until that happens I will play 2 games a week at the most...

By the way: I got down to 2 more combinations to make, but no luck at the end.

Let's first wait until I have 6 hands and 6 lollyhammers, that might take a monthe or so. Than I will move on.

No luck from the Netherlands;-/

Finally passed 677 using the boosters from the daily wheel and buying extra hands, I just gave in.

I too have never posted before and I have noticed on this level there are a lot of errors.I have lined up four to get a stripe and will not get it or will get a chocolate candy. Yesterday I lined up four and it gave me a bomb!Have also seen many times I line up 2 stripes without a third matching one and the 2 stripes set themselves off . too many things wrong with this level to keep on playing

dirty vegas said...

Brilliant level , so far I've had 8 stripped combos ,it can be done , no getting away from the fact that it is hard , don't expect it to be easy , my best efforts have come from playing at the bottom ,plenty stripped fruits ,ive only been playing a few hours ,every move counts .

dirty vegas said...

PS I have never bought any boosters ever , .It is never good coming here and seeing so many negative comments ,it just makes me more determined to pass , looks like take me a few weeks going by previous comments lol ,carry on crushing peeps

This is ridiculous. Candy Crush used to be fun and I enjoyed the challenge of the more difficult BUT doable levels. Level 677 is frustrating and impossible for the average player. I'm done with this game. They shot themselves in their own foot making these kinds of levels. Enjoyed it while it lasted. BYE!

I got down to only four combos left. I almost feel like I won the level. It should count, really.

YES!!!! I did it. After hundreds of tries and countless lives and frustration, was about to give up. I got lucky and did NOT use any boosters or help from friends. I got 3 stars with 1 life left :) All I can say is don't rush it and think and look carefully. It IS possible.... btw the next ones are easy :)

just not enough moves, just because one lucky person has done it king does not mean its a doable level, its far from it first of all you need 10 moves to combine the 2 stripes leaving 25 moves gives you an average of 2.5 moves to set up 2 stripes together !!!IMPOSSIBLE!!! i remember when ccs was exciting but this level makes me want to cry, very painful to play.

i have also noticed that sometimes the stripe candies dont always appear where they have slotted they move either to the left or right of the position

I take back everything I said previously .I got a great start and since then its like a new level ,it now feels impossible , I swear my stripped candy doesnt land where it should and I seem to be able to make unlimited amounts of wraps , this has only just happened in the last few hours , has this level got a bug ,It just doesn't seem right ,has the level changed ? its a mystery .

this level does not seem to get any better,this is the most horrible level i have ever come across even level 578 was not this bad, this level is created so that they have more time to make up more 5hit levels

I too am stuck on this 677 level, my thinking is that they make it very hard until they have another section open then make it easier. They get complaints when they don't have a new section ready so I guess this is the alternative, make it really hard so they can work on more sections.

This is the perfect level to wean us off CC. It is virtually impossible, unenjoyable and so its goodnight from me. Great off putter

All my family are stuck on level 677 we are all thinking time to stop playing cc find another game.come on modify this level are loose a lot of players.

The iPad version seems to have a glitch, there are no candies in the licorice cages, and you can't get rid of the empty cages. No way to win without being able to open up the board. I may be done with candy crush. I guess I need a real hobby now.

Anonymous said...

No use even trying to play 677 on android. Serious glitch - the striped candies in the cages explode when you line them up with two like colors, making the whole thing impossible. :( Hope they get this fixed soon.51

King, you have lost your mind. 677 is impossible on the computer, now that you have released it on the iPhone/iPad, it's a joke. You're 'helping' by taking the stripes out of the cages? At least with them in there, you had a fighting chance to get a few stripe/stripe combos. Now you have even less, if you want to help, get rid of the friggin bombs!!! I thought I could stay with this game forever, time to say adios!

Anonymous said...

Seriously does King even have testers that approve of levels before they get released? I highly doubt it at this point. Unless they're intentionally doing this which is only going to make more and more people quit and their steady declining income/stock from this game speaks volumes of this fact.

Also, King should know by now that this is a very poorly designed level. I've seen so many players not only on their Facebook page but on their forums that are completely outraged that nothing is being done to remotely make this level even the tiniest bit easier.

I truly commend those people that had enough patience to endure this awful level that they were finally able to pass. But for me I'll give it a shot for another couple of days. If I haven't passed it by then or King still have yet to do anything to this level then I'm deleting this game off all my devices for good.

Today they released level 677 on mobile and it is a joke. Even the locked stripe sets off when you try to unlock it. Effectively meaning you don't get a single strip to begin with. On PC we are finding it so difficult to make combinations how will we do it on mobile?

I actually want to beat up whomever came up with this stage!!! FU Candy Crush for making a stupid impossible stage.

Bryan said...

Finally got past level 677 and managed just to use 2 hand switches and no extra moves. Not sure if I could have done it without the boosters but after trying so many times I was determined to do whatever it took to get through. I would suggest you try to makes stripes on or near the conveyor belt and only release one of the locked candies at a time when you get a chance. Therefore if you have a candy on the conveyor belt it will eventually reach your unlocked candy. When you match a locked candy and one on the conveyor belt you can often unlock and match two more candies. At the same time you can try to get other combinations in the centre of the board. You have to try ensure as best you can that when you explode the candy stripes that you try to set up your next move or in many cases that you avoid setting off candies in other parts of the board. When you get a possible combination explode it as soon as you can because often the conveyor belt will move and it can set off unexpected combinations. Lastly if you are fairly new to this level do not bother to make any other types of combinations they will just waste valuable moves. As others have said it’s more about luck than skill.

Les said...

Cannot even play this level on my android due to horrible bug. The locked stripies are immediately set off when I try to unlock them. No point in trying until this bug is fixef.

Anonymous said...

What locked stripes? All I have down each side are 5 empty locked squares which won't unlock no matter what you do to them so no extra stripes and no way to open up the whole board. Can't be bothered playing such a badly produced level so reluctantly giving up cc and getting my life back

After trying numerous times on this level I came to this blog and saw all of the comments. Yes, this level is horrible. When I read about "unlocking the stripes" on the side, I realized the "empty cages" on my game should have stripes (using Iphone). I checked out the video and indeed, there's a bug in this level. Even with the stripes I see from all the posts very few people are able to pass this level. And yes, we're all experts at this point, so this is ridiculous.

Anonymous said...

Used the 3 extra moves, 1 move left with my last 2 stripes lined up. I was so scared I'd mess it up! How I passed? Pure luck. There was no skill involved at all. This is by far the hardest level I had ever played.

Anonymous said...

WOW!! you'd think King would get the message! You are losing more players than you are gaining. Lighten up and make the levels fun again not impossible

anonymous37 said...

It's obvious at this point that King is making many of the latest levels so difficult that unless you want to keep trying for that magical four leaf clover of a board (or pay for a lot of extra moves), you'll never get through them. Boosters don't even help with some of these levels.

Plus there are BUGS in this level. They shouldn't update till they get the bugs OUT.

I've NEVER hit the jackpot or the circle with a check on the daily spin.

Well, Candy Crush I have finally am going to hand you over some separation papers. Your behavior on this level is beyond my control. I can no longer accept your behavior, exploding all over the place. I have supported you and I have adored you. But now, I must claim my own peace of mind. I am over you completely. Bye!

So annoyed! Got the mobile update today for level 677 and now u cant even unlock the striped ones down the side! They just detonate straight away grrrr fix it!!!

I have had stripes go off when only two are together, though it does seem easier to make stripes today. Fed up with this buggy level now King and not prepared to fork out any more money until it's fixed.

Now I have stripes in what were the empty cages but they detonate when unlocked - surely they should be in jelly as with locked specials on other levels? As they are they are worse than useless because they take others with them :(

F*** Candy Crush! Level 677 is stupid & impossible to beat. Not enough moves, too many bombs & matching 10 stripes is pure dumb. You're not getting my money or any further time. Goodbye!

Has anyone else experienced bugs in this level ON TOP of it being impossible? I have matched 4 candies to make a stripe and had it changed itself into other things (like the wrapped candy or the donut that just zaps everything!) This happened to me several times, at first I thought I was just imagining it, but it happens to me about 7 times now!!!! REALLY? As if it wasn't impossible enough? Now this? I'm about ready to quit. I've made it this far and then this happens??? I'm so frustrated!!!

Jenny Jones said...

I've never posted anything about Candy Crush...until now. I do come to this site often, to learn tips/tricks or just to read the frustration others are having with levels. Oddly, it's comforting to know others are having the same difficulties I am with a certain level. But, 677 is beyond ridiculous. It's virtually impossible. Even with boosters and extra moves, the closest I get is 3 combos left. I've reached this level in a little over a year so obviously I know how to play well, as do all of you. The bombs and minimal moves are bad enough but there are also bugs. I too have made strips that turned into other things or nothing at all. I've also had things explode unexpectedly. Faulty, poor designed level. My take on it is that CC wants to slow down the progress so they can by time to make other levels. I was hoping when 677 got released on the phone it would be updated but it's worse. No caged stripes (not they help anyway) and no extra moves. Eventually, Candy Crush will modify this level, they have to, in order to sustain players. I'm just not sure if I'll stick around for the modification. I've never complained on any of the difficult levels, I stuck with it until I beat it; but, I have little patience for levels that are designed for you to fail so that Candy Crush can make more levels and even more money. I feel bad that my first blog is a vent. I should be posting tips/tricks a long the way. My only advice to all of you is to delete the app. If there is a sharp decline in players, Candy Crush will be forced to modify the game scheme. Good luck all!

After reading all the comments I feel relieved as I thought I was the only one who thought 677 is IMPOSSIBLE !!! Please modify asap or the Delete button will sadly be used.Thanks

anonymous37 said...

To KING: I have an idea for you. You should throw in about 4 (or 5) chocolate fountains, some whirling tornadoes and candies that change colors to make this level even better. Heck, you can make the bombs go off after 3 moves to make it even more fun!

I'll never pay a dime to play this bug riddled level. How many moves/boosters would one need to buy to pass this level? I don't mind buying a booster if I'm close to finishing but there's no way I'll buy if I can only get a few matches. And you should NOT be allowed to make money on levels that have bugs.

Anonymous said...

I too will finally hit the DELETE app button as I have also experienced all of the issues and bugs many of you mentioned above. I also think King has done something to the game today because I tried a few times and find that there are even more wrapped candies appearing out of nowhere and blowing EVERYTHING up. I also paid a few times in lower difficult levels if I came close but this is beyond ridiculous. I've used every booster that I collected on the daily wheel on this level but 677 and 383 in Dream world is where I too will say goodbye to all. Have a great weekend.... Oh, and one more thing, has ANYONE ever won the Jackpot on the wheel? I spin everyday on my CC and again on my husbands but never got it yet........

This is a ridiculous level. Regardless of what they say most who have reached this level have spent considerable amounts on this game me included. I love the game but instantly recognise the attempt to extract money from players and believe me that will not happen with me. I have 1 friend who competes with me in this game but I notice he has stopped now. KING you are ruining this game. No more money from me. Yes make it hard to complete levels but give us a fair chance. Will now find something else to do in my spare time rather than waste it trying to play CCC.

Les said...

I will just play this level wnen I have enough lives to bother about it. I am afraid it is bye from me KING as I am not impressed enough by your other sagas to play them as I fear they will just end as this one with you trying to extract as much as you can from players.

Going to make one last attempt to you by Emailing you about this level and if you ignore it I will ignore your games also. Say Hi or it's bye!!!

Anonymous said...

Been playing this for so long and have never thought about giving it up but this level is just ridiculous. It is no fun anymore, you don't even feel like you're getting close to beating it. It would be hard enough with the low number of moves without the added problem of the bombs. 35 moves for 10 double stripe combos, that's one every 3 and half moves. And on my mobile version there aren't even any stripes down the sides so i have to make every stripe. I hope this level gets updated or i am afraid i am off. Not fun anymore! :-(

Nightmare , I used to look forward to sitting down and playing candy crush ,but this level has changed that , I still play but not everyday now ,its just brain numbing ,the less I play the less I miss it ,it looks like it has been designed to keep people from moaning about waiting for new levels.

i have been playing this level since the beginning of Sept, i left the very first comment here and today Sept 20 i am still not even near getting through this level. have not come close to even use the boosters. they finally add it to my iPod touch and they add it broken, no stripes in cages, what is wrong with King??? I am very disappointed, don't even want to play this game anymore, they took a good thing and ruined it!

Vijay said...

Today after about 200 tries I made 5 combos in 1st 14 moves so I thought this time I have a chance but in next 21 moves either I could not make stripes or when I made they set off them self. They don't want us to clear this level.

Just downloaded today's update and King seems to have fixed the iPad bug. Before the update I had no locked stripes on the sides. After the update this was fixed and I won the level on the second try. I used two hammers to do it because I didn't feel like messing around with the level after reading all the comments here, but I noticed the stripes were easier to make and didn't spontaneously detonate like they were doing before the update. Hopefully this was the fix everyone was waiting for.

In the youtube clip there are 7 stripes on the sides. I don’t get them on mine. I am playing on my daughter’s iPod touch. Am I missing something?

Stripe in cage just sets off. In prior levels the cage unlocks leaving the jelly there..hence ita no help. If I pass this level it will be pure luck. Got down to 4 remaining once and that felt like a win. All other hard levels till now at least seemed doable regardless. ..this us just insane. Saving my daily boosters till that lucky game comes.. good luck and after 655 that I thought I wld never get thru kinda same here..played that very little...this will be the same..

Just got an update and I can see the stripes on the side now. Now it looks a little more doable.

I did an update after posting above and it fixed the glitch. My cage now unlocks and does not set off the stripe. Feeling so like wasted my time till now..having only played a couple of games since I hv managed more stripes..I still think passing this level any time soon if at all will be a miracle!

I really had to lol about this:
"To KING: I have an idea for you. You should throw in about 4 (or 5) chocolate fountains, some whirling tornadoes and candies that change colors to make this level even better. Heck, you can make the bombs go off after 3 moves to make it even more fun!"

I have no tips other than this:
If you are not playing on PC you can leave the game without losing a life if it doesn‘t look like a good board for you.
And you can get more lives by going into settings and putting the time forward. Go back to the game but do NOT Start playing. Go back to settings and put the time back. Now you will have a full set of lives.

On the topic of this level everything has been said, I can only agree!

Anonymous said...

Just a couple of comments because I am quitting and won't be back. I have no idea how any of you got by level 202 in dreamworld unless you played when you got 3 moves after moonstruck. Now you only get one and it's not winnable. I won a jackpot box when they first started. I think they wanted to promote the daily spins. Haven't come close since. I do believe the spin is geared to the level you are on and won't give you a booster that would actually help. Since I will NEVER purchase, 677 is the end of me. It's hard enough without the bugs which make it impossible.

Whats up with this level. Since when do you get a candy ball with four. Fix it--its hard enough.And while your're at it fix level 237 on dreamworld. Thanks

OK so I received the update and the IPad now has striped candies on the side. Still this game is NOT possible. I've tried to be patient but that's it DETETED.

I finally passed this level buying the 5 extra lives and also using some hand switches and lollypops that I had saved up on my Android. If I had planned better I might have been able to win without the 5 extra lives but I'm glad to be done with that level! I'm still stuck on Dreamworld 383 for now. I still have some lollys and switches left so that might help finish that level at some point after I run out of levels in the regular Candy Crush.

I really don't want to give up on this level, I'm not the type of person but I do wish they would fix the game, we all made it this far and sill want to continue with the game. So to king fix the bugs. Thank you

Anonymous said...

Okay I finally passed it. Was a miserable level.

here is how I did it.

First I mostly worked on the left side first, letting things open up or helped as I could before working on the right side. This is because you can potentially get 2 sets of switches on the left, vs only one on the right.

I just kept doing game after game...NOT SPENDING A DIME, because there is no point in even using your freebies (chocolate ball, extra stripped and wrapped) and so on. they don't help so don't bother using them. After playing for several weeks only the games I could each day, I got down to 2 left with time running out. that was a freaking miracle. I also had a striped pair I could use right with my next life. This was my chance! I paid 5 bars to get an extra 5 lives..and I used one hammer in those last 5 and viola done.

so to recap.

Don't pay anything unless you get down to 1 or 2 switches left needed. Not even doing it if you get down to 4 is helpful at all. don't use up your daily freebies (checks/stripes/chocolate balls) because they don't help.

Only use the hand or the hammer if your about to win, otherwise it's just wasting them.

the extra 3 lives that people can send you are nice but not really helpful IMO. Bare minimum either King needs to double the amount of lives or even just get rid of the timed ones. It would still be a very difficult game to play with no timed bombs but at least not be so mind numbing frustrating.

Anonymous said...

I have no idea how I completed this level! Did have to use my 3 lolly pops but didn't have to buy anything ... the board just started giving me stripe/stripe combos ... I did have to use over 60 lives before success. Just plain luck if you ask me!

Anonymous said...

It's possible. I did it! After about 2 weeks playing over 40 lives a day... On the last move and no boosters or extra moves. I was really LUCKY. That's what you'll need. LUCK.
You need to be really careful and analyze every move. Said that, you'll still need a lot of luck.
The tip I found useful was to try and use 6 of the locked stripped candy, 4 from the left side and 2 from the right side. For the left side, try to unlock 2 at a time (top 2, bottom 2 or middle 2).
Got this tip here:

Any hope that King would modify this level to make it a little easier is now gone with recent posts from people saying they they have gotten it..with a little patience. I've never felt like quitting the game altogether, but have always wanted a good reason to. This level is it for me, I did get one round with 2 combos left and felt it was a miracle to get that. This level is far harder than any other and just takes whatever fun there was out of it.

PA Crusher said...

Success!!! This was perhaps the hardest level I've encountered to date. Been trying for almost 2 weeks. Playing very slow and thinking about each move, I've been able to consistently get down to 2-4 combos left the last 3 days. Best strategy is to get a couple of stripe matches in the center of the board and then use that to break 1 of the caged on the sides and hopefully thru a series of moves get 3 (or maybe 4) combos along the side. Then it's just hoping you can survive the bombs and make 3 or 4 from whole cloth to complete. Interestingly, on the board I finally won, I had my initial strategy working great when (as had happened many times) everything blew up and I had to start over. The board gave me a couple of combos and stripes on the conveyor and things just fell into place. Did have to use a free spin hammer to get the last combo, but I'll take it! It's just like all the other impossible levels (see Soda Swamp), eventually, the candies fall in place. It's more frustrating when you have to rely on luck but after the last world which was so easy it could be completed in a day, this challenge evened things out a bit.

I'm now at 681.

Well, got the "update"so that the cages finally had stripes (on Iphone), but now either the daily spin wheel disappears or when I get it back and try to use it I get a message saying that my Facebook session has timed out and I need to log in again. Thing is, I'm not using Facebook for Candy Crush on my phone and never did. This level still has bugs (when I finally get two stripes lined up they often detonate).

Derrick, glad I gave you a little laugh earlier. Thanks for the tip on getting lives. I knew about it already but I'm sure you helped others.

I'm looking for another fun game that's not so aggravating. Suggestions? TIA.

I have purchased stuff for this game which is hard to admit, and considering I've used what I've purchased for this stage with no result, I may finally say fair well to Candy Crush. This stage is frustrating me to no end especially when you think you got it then a chain of events takes hold and ruins your combos. STUPID!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Thank you King for this level as I can now quit Candy Crush without any desire to come back. First, I just want to say this was an awesome game and had me truly playing whenever I had a chance. For about a year now, I'd play all the time and stop playing for awhile only to return trying to beat the level I was stuck on. With the combination of this being a boring board and how impossible this level is even when you get a lucky board, I have no desire to play anymore. To people reading this thinking I'm being sarcastic, I'm not. I am actually relieved as I would play this game constantly since I'm a competitive person and have a number of friends near my level. I can finally say good bye!
