Candy Crush Saga Level 717

Tips for level 717 Candy Crush Saga
Level 717 has been changed for the worse, there is now only one colour bomb provided so you have to make the other three.
The colour bombs are not too difficult to make but it's now much more difficult to get rid of the bombs at the start of the game. Before you use the colour bomb look carefully to see if you can unfreeze the bombs first, if you use the colour bomb on a colour of any of the bombs which are frozen all it will do is unfreeze the bomb and take away all the candies of the same colour so you will have nothing to match the bomb with.
Much better either to unfreeze the bombs before you use the colour bomb, or use it on a colour that is next to all the bombs so it will unfreeze them but still leave candies of the right colour to match them.
Then try to work in the bottom or middle of the board to make your colour bombs. I was very lucky in the video below in that one colour bomb appeared from a cascade, but this can happen regularly.
New video below

You need to make 4 colour bombs and there are already 3 on the board frozen in ice.
Unlock the colour bombs and use them to destroy the bombs and then you just need to make one more colour bomb to complete the game.
Keep an eye on the bombs which will fall into the top sections of the board, but you have to use the bottom section, or middle, to make your colour bomb as it's the only place where you can get 5 in a row.

The easiest way to pass this level is to use an color bomb if you have one from the daily spins. I passed the level is 6 moves by doing this.

Anonymous said...

clearly the game has updated as there are not 3 colour bombs on screen only 1. this level is impossible

Anonymous said...

There is only one colour bomb and that is in the centre! what has gone wrong?

Anonymous said...

When I played last night i started with 3 color bombs; today I am only starting with one. What happened to the other 2??

peter mohan said...

All hints show 3 color bombs, but I have only one in center. Just shot me.

Level 717 , last night when i played i had 3 color
bombs, today when i play there is only 1.. HELP!

peter mohan said...

This is ridiculous!
There is only one bomb on the board.
Even if you kill all the time bombs, you will never get three more color bombs
I guess I will take up horseshoes

And I thought it was my imagination......game is cheating? Janine Marie

Lisa said...

Just got to this level and it is impossible. I only have 1 color bomb and it is in the middle. No chance of making additional ones and impossible to clear the bombs and they keep falling...

Lisa said...

Ok literally the next game after the last post I won the game. Crazy. Biggest thing I did was look for moves to get the bombs out of their ice first. Next don't clear the color to one of the bottom bombs (still in ice) or you won't be able to get enough of their color down to them to destroy them. Lucky board I guess.

Anonymous said...

same here...only 1 sprinkle candy in the middle-not 4!!!...other 4 are frozen bombs. don't see this happening any time soon!

Anonymous said...

What happened to this game, it was 3 color bombs, but today, only 1 in the middle?

Anonymous said...

Is King going to fix this level? Because with only one colour bomb in the middle and considering the shape of the board, even without the bombs, it is virtually impossible to pass this level.

stupid level!

I dont have patience for this..STUPID STUPID level.Impossible with only one bomb and having to wait for the LUCKY board. GONE GONE CC

Horrible game! What's the daily spin I see mentioned?

Anonymous said...

I've played 15 games and got knocked out with 38 moves left each time. Impossible game.
Where's the daily spin? I'm not seeing it.

J'aime les défis mais il me manque toujours deux bombes à fabriquer. Je ne veux pas dire que c'est impossible mais je vais sûrement passer des jours sur ce tableau...

Anonymous said...

This is the most stupid level I have seen!!! Why would they change it to make it harder??????? Absolutely makes me lose interest in the game.

Anonymous said...

This one is ridiculous. You don't even have a chance to clear the bombs, never mind making 4 chocolate balls. I don't want to play anymore.

This level is curing my addition to Candy Crush = Goodbye!

Anonymous said...

If they are going to change the levels once play has started, they should only make them easier.

Anonymous said...

Ended up using some of my free wheel boosters to pass - one candy bomb to start and two free switches to create the other two bombs. Worth it to get past this stupid level. You will only pass this level with pure luck if you don't use boosters. There is no skill or strategy involved.

Anonymous said...

its not fair to change a level...you have made it almost impossible....makes you want to give up on candy crush....change it back, please.......

Kathy said...

put the level back to what it was....it is impossible to get thru with your change...makes you want to finally quit playing

It's so boring to play.

This level is ridiculous - not fun at all. Fix it or I'm gone.

Love this game, but level 717 is a joke. I refuse to pay anymore money than I already have for boosters and such. This level is impossible. I think it might be time to try another game. Thanks for the memories Candy Crush.

Anonymous said...

even i thought the same that this is impossible. Keep playing this you will complete it, because we are getting bombs automatically as the game progresses. It happened to me.......All the best

Anonymous said...

This is the most ridiculous level yet - and that's saying something! Even if you kill the bombs, how are you supposed to match 5 on such a limited board. Stupid, stupid, stupid and I think this will be the one that will finally make me leave CC!

Anonymous said...

Agree with others. this level seems impossible. i've used some several color bombs from daily spins. when i do, crush 2 color bombs, instead of one. i can't see how this board lets one build color bombs outside of pure luck. and of course, get past the 4 bombs and the ones that follow suck up all of moves in the very few times that i get past them. Arggh!

Anonymous said...

Please update this level. Take some colors away, get rid of the bombs, give back the three color bombs, widen the playing board. Do something!!!!!

Anonymous said...

bout a wk later & i'm cking back to see if there's been any IMPROVEMENTS with this level...NOT...can't believe cc has not improved something on this level... really sad since obviously we've all made it this far...no new pointers & no changes in the game level-still 4 bombs & one sprinkle in the center...

Anonymous said...

they changed it back.. I finally made it :)

This level just updated on my Kindle and there are 3 chocolate bombs....yay!!! After playing on FB for a couple of weeks with 1 bomb, I passed on first try on Kindle. Don't know why the difference but I'm happy to get passed

Anonymous said...

I still only have 1 chocolate bomb on both pc and phone:-(. Just a stupid level. Come on CC, update please!

Anonymous said...

Omg phone just updated and still only 1 color bomb. About to uninstall and quit playing this game.

Finally hit my nemesis - level 717 - truly impossible!

Anonymous said...

I only have 1 choc bomb on my Samsung 2 phone.This level is worse than 677 and youve made that easier after i spent 4 wks on that.Think 717 is the end of the road for me its IMPOSSIBLE with only 1 choc bomb.

Anonymous said...

What a boring and impossible level. I tried at least 50 times and nothing to do! Bye bye Candy crush!

Anonymous said...

There are 3 chocolate bombs on my Kindle and I beat the level with a color bomb from the daily spin. Note that the Kindle updates are always behind the Android and Facebook updates, so I am betting the next update to the Kindle version will also take away the color bombs.

This levels stinks, stinks and stinks. I am getting too frustrated with this one. What a stupid game, I hate it!!!!!!!

Time to drop Candy Crush I think!!As someone else said:

I finished that one with my first try. I thought it impossible to get three more chocolate balls with this design, but after I made the second one the third one just appeared. And then with my second to last move the conveyor made the fourth one. Blew it with my last move. Incredibly lucky.

King should fire whoever designed this level. Incredibly stupid level design. Impossible to pass and there is nothing you can do about it

Anonymous said...

Here's a tip: in the mobile version of candy crush saga this level still has 3 color bombs!

Anonymous said...

This game is super lame. I think whoever decided that three bombs were too many and one was better needs to rethink this. There is hardly any thought required here. Just do the one move that is there and see what happens. I mean....what is the point of this???!!!

Aja said...

Why do they keep making the levels harder? First 713, and now this one? Is this an attempt to slow people from moving forward too quickly? This level is so frustrating. :(

Anna Shepard said...

Totally agree with u...whoever made this level with only one candy bomb should be fired..totally impossible to beat without paying and I see pple saying that its pure luck...I'll be damned if my luck is ever that good

Anna Shepard said...

Here's a better tip: no it doesn't!

Anonymous said...

Impossible with only one choc bomb. I still don't have this level available on either the ipad or phone.

Dexter said...

Don‘t give up! I thought this level impossible but I just got through. I now know what people mean when they say they got a lucky board. My first move game me a second choc bomb, and pretty soon had another with the conveyor belt giving me no. 4 with the same move. As I said, very lucky.

Debbie Mack said...

This is absolutely impossible! Why are there two versions! My friends has an android and she is finished! She has three color bombs! WtTF!

Janine Marie said...

The level is different for different versions. Having no patience and playing on an IPAD< i say the opp to use some of my stored up lollipops and used 3 of them to progress.....figure that way, if I go bqck and look later it would be fixed back to the 3 color bombs (which is what i had when I first tried the game....only to have it switch on me) Janine Maire

Anonymous said...

Wow - I'm glad I finished this level BEFORE they made it much harder. I thought that over time they made levels easier - not harder! You think bombs will drive you nuts here - just wait until you get to level 735!

Rob Hawkins said...

This level absolutely sucks. I can understand that having 3 color bombs on the board meant that you just needed to drop in the color bomb booster and use them to free the others. But they swung it completely in the opposite direction and now it's an exercise in futility. Removing 2 of the color bombs means at the least, you have to make 2 more. With no room and 6 colors. The added candy bombs are just an insult. A 50-move game that won't last longer than 12 90% of the time, which means any boosters you try to use will only be wasted.

Anonymous said...

Man alive this game sucks!!! All other games that people have complained about and said it was "Impossible" I have just kept at it and eventually it worked. And then we have THIS "work of art"!!...............PLEASE! cough,cough, gag, gag. Not even in the same LEAGUE as the others! Whoever thought he had a brain wave and changed it better stop patting himself on the back. It's pathetic! You made a mistake. Change it back or make less colours. I feel like an idiot even playing it. Having the option of one or two moves makes no sense. Ask your mother! She will agree.

Anonymous said...

Ridiculous, impossible en pure luck. For the first time I agree with these qualifications. I thought it was a game, sometimes very difficult but doable, now it's not. Stop playing for a while, hoping for a sensible update.

Bill. said...

Still three bombs on the kindle I can see why the change one bomb from the bonus wheel and with the three game over. But now far to difficult.

Anonymous said...

Very, very hard level! However, if you have a colour bomb booster from the daily spins and a mystery candy booster from the daily spins use them both at the same time. Keep going in and out of the level until you reach a combination where you can make a colour bomb in the first few moves. Use one of the colour bombs to set off the mystery candy colour and it's level complete - one at the start, one on the level, one from the mystery candy and one from the booster. Hope this helps those who are still struggling with this level.

Elizabeth Wobschall said...

This is the level that will make me uninstall and move on to other things. :(. Such a waste.

Rob Hawkins said...

I can only play this on the Laptop/PC, so the advice of backing out until I get a favorable board doesn't help. Any use of boosters ends up being a waste.

anonymous37 said...

A mystery candy booster from the daily spins? I've been spinning since they introduced the wheel and NEVER got that little gem or the jack pot. This level is impossible and for King to change levels to make them harder is ridiculous. Those of us who've gotten this far have been loyal players. They need to change this back to the way it was first introduced.

Anonymous said...

The revised harder version of 717 is awful but still not as bad as the revised 713 or the original 677. It is right up there with 655 and 664 pre-nerf though.

Anonymous said...

Dexter you used the strategy I recommend for this level. Keep resetting the game on mobile until you have a ready made color bomb and that will be the first move. You will have 2 color bombs after only one move and use strategy from there to eliminate colors and bombs to win the level.

Anonymous said...

It will be easier to create the third and fourth color bombs then

tony said...

Got to this level without buying any boosters, but this level is by far the hardest ever, I can't get even close best I've done is 2 colour bombs, I would say it is imposible to get 4 colour bombs, can't see how boosters would help either.

Anonymous said...

Using Firefox on my MAC I have only one sprinkle and four bombs with cream layers on the board. After some fun levels I guess we have to deal with this. Never give up! Maybe they will some day put the other three sprinkles back.

Pamela said...

Just completed level 717 with 40 moves left and score of 312520 3 stars.How I did use a booster it's the one with a tick on it,it turns into a sprinkle bomb when you touch it with anything. Hope this helps.

Anonymous said...

Impossible, but I'll wait until they fix it. I'm patient. I wonder what they were thinking though. King couldn't have tried the new version before they put it out.

Anonymous said...

Pamela's right! Use the booster with the check mark in it. I won with 39 moves left, and had 2 chocolate bombs on the board that I didn't use. Thank you Pamela!

Anonymous said...

shouldn't be forced to use boosters to pass a level though. Boosters should make it easier but not be necessary. This is the worst level since 500 imo. completely terrible 0 stars

Anonymous said...

I see your point, but my thinking is that the free boosters are there to use. I haven't paid a nickel to get this far, and I'm not on Facebook, so I can't get extra lives.

Pamela said...

I used the free wheel spin booster.I will not buy boosters.If there free use them that's what they are there for.

Robin Kratz said...

Lol..... I have to agree!!!! Ugh!!!!!!

Carrie, UK said...

Dug out my husband's (never really used) Kindle Fire and loaded CC. Hey Presto I beat this level within about 7 attempts!

Anonymous said...

This level is ridiculous. I was able to pass using a couple of boosters. Select the chocolate ball booster. Go into the game and only play if there is a way to make a chocolate ball with the first move. If not them move back out and try again. Once you have a board that makes the third ball then you have you will have to make a ball with the moves available. The switch booster will come in handy at some point and allow you to make the 4th ball. Good Luck

Anonymous said...

Thanks Pamela, took your advice and used a tick booster ....worked just like you said...thanks again !!!

Anonymous said...

People keep saying to use a Lucky candy booster but there is only one problem...I have NEVER gotten one from the wheel in a hundred+ spins! I've even gotten the jackpot once but NEVER a Lucky Candy booster!

Anonymous said...

I have been using the daily spins since they introduced them and have never had either the jackpot or the lucky candy booster.

It says in the introduction that is is easy to make a colour bomb but that is not my experience. I can't see how I could get past this level even by paying.

Anonymous said...

Gahhhh ! I had finally had ENOUGH of this level, so I thought I'd have one last try and used my saved boosters (colour bomb, special (ticked) candy, extra moves) - and Lo and Behold!!!! the level has been fixed for PC now! So I didn't need to use those boosters after all! The level is now as easy as pie! in fact too easy! No-one in the future will ever believe what a f*** this level was!

Anonymous said...

It has gone back to having three bombs at the start, but you need 5 stripes as well.

Anonymous said...

That was a nice morning surprise! Now has three choco sprinkles and only two bombs. Second move gave me an additional choco sprinkle; third move gave me a stripe next to it, so a match of the two was all I needed to complete the level. Thank you Candy Crush - I thought I'd never move on.

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much for all the advice. You helped me get thru this stupid level. I used th the color bomb booster along with the checked booster and passed immediately after trying for days. Worth the money to get thru it!!!

Anonymous said...

Like all of you I had been struggling to finish this level. At times only needing one color bomb. Sometimes I play on the Facebook page since it seems easier. I lucked out today because Facebook had the old configuration of this level with three color bombs already present and only needing to create the fourth one. Failed first time around but got it on the second turn. Up to level 720 now.

Anonymous said...

So they have changed it again - back to 3 coloured bombs on the opening board, with 1 more to make plus some stripes. I finished it on the first attempt with 30+ moves left.

Anonymous said...

So happy the level was changed. I was able to pass first try with 3 stars. I would have never passed before the change. Was ready to give up. What a wonderful surprise and it's now so doable!

Rob Hawkins said...

By a miracle of luck I managed to beat this level on the hard setup (one choco ball, 4 bombs). Funny how that ALWAYS happens with imposso-levels after complaining about them online...

But now it's fixed with 3 choco balls, 2 bombs, and only 5 colors. So, I passed it on my first attempt. If King thinks this level is too easy now, that's fine. This episode can afford one 'gimme" level, since 8 of the 15 were nearly impossible.

Anonymous said...

I'm so glad I checked back here to leave a comment. I was about to stop playing and accumulate boosters for a while with the hopes they would change this level back. And change it they did! Got through on the first try tonight needing only one lollipop.

Wondering what's going on with the booster wheel. It wants me to pay for the daily booster wheel? Am I getting that right?

Anonymous said...

Could not pass this level with the configuration they had for a while with 4 bombs and 1 color bomb. It was next to impossible. Finished it on the first try after the change back. It's moderately difficult now.

Ann Marie Kleiber said...

much, much better! this level was virtually impossible the other way!

fixed back on mobile yet or nah?

not even going to bother playing again until it is

anonymous37 said...

Ho, not fixed on the mobile. Seems to take forever for fixes and updates.

anonymous37 said...

ooooops...that was supposed to be "No" and not "Ho"!

Joep van Mourik said...

played on IPad, which was not easy. Today on the pc and I got 3 colourbombs. Made the level with 43 moves left.

spchcomm said...

Agreed with the above comment - play it on the PC through Facebook. TOTALLY different than my phone app version. Passed it on the first try.

Anonymous said...

I arrived to this stage on Android yesterday, and passed it today, about less than 10 tries. I thought I was going to stuck for a while so didn't really attempt it, until just now I just tried it for fun and I passed.

First colour bomb unfreeze 3 bombs, and the remaining one is easy to unfreeze. Then the remaining of the game is just to build colour bombs at the bottom, while keeping a lookout of any bombs from exploding.

Anonymous said...

Facebook versions are always easier than mobile versions as they are the fastest to be nerfed (updated). It's a well known fact. If you want to challenge yourself, try passing all stages on the mobile version without using boosters. I believe many people are doing that currently, at least I am.

Anonymous said...

Get stuck for 5 days playing on ipad, switch to playing on desktop from fb and clear this level right on the first try. So it's true that playing on fb is much easier.

Another impossible level Nd no fun at all. Hate this.

It's only showing 1 sprinkle candy on my Kindle Fire, wish I had gotten to this level sooner. Pretty tough to beat and boring after a while.

Shisa said...

Play it on Facebook, it's much easier. I wasted days playing it on my iPhone, played once on Facebook and sugar crushed... :D

Anonymous said...

Until they change this level back to starting with 3 color bombs, i am done with Candy Crush. Not fair that some people get this as an easy level and then others have to waste their time with impossible versions of the same game.

Anonymous said...

After posting the above comment, I tried once more on iPad - still needed 4 color sprinkle bombs. Went to Kindle Fire -same thing. Tride my PC and now it starts with 3 color sprinkle bombs and only 2 timer bombs. You have to get 4 color sprinkle bombs and a bunch of striped balls. The striped balls were easy to get by combining one with a color sprinkle bomb. Passed on the 3rd try on PC.

Tavisha said...

Managed it at last. One colour bomb was provided. Used another using a booster colour bomb from the spin wheel. A 3rd colour bomb appeared during a cascade and made a 4th with the help of a lollipop hammer booster obtained from the spin wheel

Phik Kandy Krush said...

Phuk this. Not only is it almost impossible but it's not even fun. I stary with 1 bomb only and this level can suck my kok

anonymous37 said...

I finally finished it (only one sprinkle candy provided with the 4 bombs in each section). I started with an extra sprinkle I'd gotten with the daily spin and kept resetting the board (Iphone) till I got a board where I could use the hand swap (from wheel that I'd saved) to swap two candies to be able to make the third sprinkle candy. I used the 3 sprinkles and held my breath that I'd be able to get rid of all bombs and make a 4th sprinkle and was able to do it. What a bi*ch of a level. :(

Anonymous said...

Thank you King for level 717. I have been playing CC for a long time and want to quit but since CC is soo addictive it is very difficult to stop. Level 717 is a joke: simply impossible. Now I can quit! Thanks! My husband is also very, very happy!!

Frieda said...

Thanks for the posts on this blog! Has helped me many times already! It helped me for level 717. I followed the advice given to repeatedly go to a new game on my iphone till I got a game where I could immediately make a color bomb. I spent perhaps a couple of hours waiting for that game. It came! I got it about on the fourth of those perfect game setups! There are more fun games after 717. I have now completed the episode! But with such very difficult levels I may soon quit CC.

Bill. said...

Changed again much easier, three bombs at the start. You only need four to finish plus five striped candies, they will make their mind up soon.

Anonymous said...

I agree unless they change the board back. I've got this far but I'm done. Level can't be passed with one colour bomb at start up. It's obvious they want to slow us down until they create more levels but fair go.

Ken Marks said...

OK...first, don't start playing the board unless there are the same color candies touching the 4 bombs in each corner. Then activate the color bomb in the middle to the appropriate color candy. once that's done, work the board and make sure you stay on top of the bombs. Obviously, you have to look for "5 in a row", but the game will provide color bombs along the way. Just be patient... It took me a couple of weeks, but no boosters or help.

So it is impossible to win on my IPad.....but went on my laptop, through Facebook and won in two tries

Anonymous said...

this level is not passable on iphone or ipad format. the setup is totally different on a PC. On the devices only one color bomb appears and it is not possible to complete the level. Passed on first try on PC. PC version provides 3 color bombs. You also need to make several striped candy combos on PC version to pass, but that is the easy part. The ipad/iphone version doesnt even have the striped candy part of this level. It is obviously a flaw in the design.

Anonymous said...

717 is impossible on my iPad. I don't understand why the game is different on different devices, seems like a real flaw. I have gotten the jackpot one time on a free spin,it was like winning the lottery.

Anonymous said...

Yeah......iPad version finally got changed. There are now 3 colored bombs provided. Was a pleasant surprise. Have been on this one for several weeks. Did not give up. Got it first time with the changes.

Anonymous said...

JanC here. Another annoying level! Got it on my second try, no boosters, but only because a sprinkle ball materialized out of nowhere on the conveyor. Made the final stripe easily but nearly ran out of moves trying to get same colored candies to it to detonate it. Nerve wracking no fun :(

Anonymous said...

Much easier as of now on the Computer. I ha no chance on my Android. 1 Color Bomb. The PC version gives you Three Color Bombs.....The goal did change to "4 Color Bombs and 4 (maybe was 5) stripes, but, that was not a problem. Won it the first game with no boosters on he PC after about 30+ WTF games on the Android.

Anonymous said...

Got it on second try on iPad. 3 chocolate bombs at beginning. Reset until unprotected bomb was next to a color that abutted all move bombs. 4th chocolate bomb materialized out of thin air. Stripes easy to get. 3167

I must have had a very lucky board. Killed it on the second attempt. No boosters. Made chocolate bomb very quickly and swapped it straight away with a stripe. makes a change for me that lucky. Nice after being struck for so long on 716. Jane

Anders here:
Finally done. Without boster but with a terribly boring strategy.
Feel almost ashamed and like an idiot.
Maybe written about before.
If you have extra colourbomb use it.
But never start playing unless you see an extra bomb in next moves.
This means you have to restart the game up to 30 minutes. It can happen quickly but typically 10-20 min.
Then you have 2-3 cbombs immidietely.
After that you need luck and time to get the rest.
But I'm an addict and have lot of waiting time.
Good luck. I reach one left at least 20 times before I got lucky.
Most boring level ever.

Anonymous said...

Completed on my first attempt with 38 moves to spare! That is 713 to 717 completed this morning with only one life lost - took me two goes to do 716. Maybe I have been very lucky but my experience does not match with what I have been reading on here.

Keep going folks. If you have got this far you can do these. I have got this far without spending a single penny so it can be done.

Anonymous said...

Level 717 on my android and my laptop had color ball and stripes. I needed 5 stripes and 3 or 4 balls. Got it on the second try. Glad I didn't have your boards. Good luck. On to 718. BTW, got over 200,000 points but only 2 stars. Fine.

Anonymous said...

This really is easy if you have a checkball booster. I used it and three chocolate bombs came down one right after the other. Crushed it in 12 moves!

Kfmconsulting said...

Played on iPad, which started with 3 sprinkle candies. Tricky on the countdown candies lining up. On 5th try added one of my free sprinkle candies and finished with 15 moves left and 2 stars.

Anonymous said...

King must have changed the game back. On my first try, I started with three candy bombs, one in the center and two in the upper-left and lower-right diagonals, but wrapped in ice. So I only needed a fourth candy bomb, which immediately formed. Two moves later I had a striped candy next to it. Set that off to collect the four striped candies I needed. Took all of six moves. Lucky?
