Candy Crush Saga level 956

Tips and strategy to pass level 956 Candy Crush Saga.
If you struggle with timed levels as I do, try reading our tips on passing timed levels.
On level 956 go for colour bombs first, if you can't make a colour bomb aim for the keys and plus 5 candies. The plus 5's will keep the game going and the keys will eventually unlock the sides, which contain colour bombs and plus 5 candies.
Plus 5 candies will only fall if you make cascades by matching combos or colour bombs, matches of 3 will not get you enough plus 5's to keep the game going.
As soon as you get these unlocked use the colour bombs on either a single colour candy or on a wrapped candy.
Using a colour bomb on a striped candy will not give many points and will "mess up" the board and waste any good moves and other special candies you may have.
The best points are always made by switching a colour bomb with a wrapped candy.. 
Here is a guide to scoring higher points on any level.

This level is horrible with the sugar drop add on, it takes way too much time away to ever win.

I haven't even come close on this one. King really needs to lower the points requirement or allow more time. I hate to come here to complain but I'm getting really bored making good moves as quickly as possible and never even coming close. A huge challenge for those of us with dexterity issues. I know I'll give it a few more tries but thinking this level might be my last. Bye bye, CC!! :(

Tony said...

Well Have to say this level seems be the killer level of all time. I have tried at least 30 games at it and haven't got past 30,000 points! so 200,000 seems to me to be ridiculous, I'm a half glass full person but this is really pushing it. The tips talk about matching colour bombs with rapped candies, seriously you don't have time to even look for those possibilities because the game is over befor you can blink. Also these timed levels always seem to have pauses in them but the clock keeps ticking this is very noticable on this level. I don't have any tips yet because I can't come up with any strategy for it.

Tony said...

Just got to 174,000 did that by matching two colour bombs together, then had some more which i matched with anything just to keep the game moving, I managed to clear all the locks down the side which really helped but after that the extra 5 second colours slowed down which then slowed my scoring, frustrating to get so close, I think this may be a level where you need a lucky board that was mine and I failed so guess I ill have to wait for another one lol. Keep on trying.

Tony said...

OK sorry to post so much, but just got this by matching colour bombs with anyhing near them, when you do this the loss of a colour on the board tends to make more colour bombs, eventually this will unlock the sides and give you a lot of colour bombs and 5 second colours match the bombs and 5 sec colours and the score roars along, I know it seems too simple to be true but my last 3 goes I did this and got closer each time till finally got 240.000+ I thought this would be a nightmare but follow these tips and I'm sure you will get there. Good luck.

Anonymous said...

After three or four tries and only reaching about 25,000, got this with nearly 300,000 points. Not bad for ageing arthritic hands and fingers.

Anonymous said...

Glad to see that some have passed this level but it's a lot more fun when strategy is involved.
This just feels frantic!!!! Hopefully I'll get lucky eventually but I don't play CC to get stressed out!! -Katerina

Anonymous said...

messed up level. can't even get close to 200000. the timed levels suck!!

Anonymous said...

Got two stars on my fourth try. If you have come this far, you then have played levels far worse than this. When I think back to levels 147 and 350, I was stuck on them for weeks. You will get through this.

Jay said...

Ughhhhh, and it was going so well until THIS! Got to 150k with bombs, but no more time bonus candies.

Jay said...

Here's the trick; post a useless tip here then NEVER watch the timer and you will score over 300K the next time you play!

Anonymous said...

Honestly if I passed this then ANYONE can pass this! I was stuck here for four days averaging 25,000 pts per game. Then today I just got lucky. I didn't do anything different. Just finally got a lucky board. Keep your eye out for those keys and extra time candies and whenever you get a color bomb explode it one color at a time and another one often appears. Really thought this was going to be the end of CC for me so if you're stuck here don't despair. It might take a couple of days but really if I passed this with my slow computer then anyone can pass it with a lucky board. Good luck! - Katerina

Anonymous said...

I have played all morning after being dumb enough to buy the May special. I am so sick to my stomach trying this level. best score was maybe 37,000 following any tip I could find. Since keys do not appear at first no way to judge a lucky board fast enough. I wonder if I can just send my gold bars to someone else or move to soda game cause I cant deal with this timed level any more.

GRAHAMF said...

I am lucky to get 20,000 never mind 200,000, even when starting with colour bomb and wrapped/striped candies!!! Have once managed to get just over 100,000, so that must have been my 'lucky board' and still only just managed to reach half of required total. Looks like the end of the CC road for me...........

Anonymous said...

This game is like a bully and we are its "suckers." I am not going through this anymore. As soon as you finish one excruciating level, there's the next. It didn't used to be like this but has become a game if self-torture. I have better things to do. Bye! 👋

Anonymous said...

I passed this level without using any boosters . Once you get all the keys and unlock the boxes, you get lots more 5 second time candies and chocolate bombs . As time is so short, dont bother trying to get stripped candy and wrapped candy combos, that just slows the game down . Dont even try to make stripes or wraps, just concentrate getting all the keys . Once youve got all the keys and chocolates, just explode the chocolate with the nearest single colour , then explode the other chocolate with a different colour candy . This should cause other chocolates to form and just keep exploding them with the nearest single candy ,

Anonymous said...

Something's up with this game? I just made four color bombs right off the bat, using three on one color and a bomb and stripped combo with another. Then I got a stripped wrapped combo and made some other combos too! But just when I thought I really had it this time, the game was over, the most quickly ever! Maybe there were not enough +5 that dropped down. Winning is really so arbitrary. It's not skill like were led to believe. It's like slots.

Anonymous said...

Silly level. I'm not fond of timed levels as I don't move quickly enough. The highest I've gotten so far is 48,000. I'll try the tips mentioned here -- tomorrow. Enough for tonight.

Anonymous said...

There's a big glitch in this timed game. There is a trial candy that is showing up on my CC. It's a jelly with the letter "C" on it. As you collect them you get a lame booster or two. Anyway, it takes time for this candy to appear on the board, which eats up even more seconds. Even with good plays, I time out so quickly. They really made a dumb mistake. I can't even play this already ridiculous level until it's fixed.

Anonymous said...

I hate this level right from the start and things are not going well for me. I'm a slow player so this is murder. Tried buying extra time twice as I was over 150,000 but ended up with only 164,00 after doing that twice. The board just dried up. I'm going to forget about the extra time, use the tips above and keep plugging away until the lucky board shows up.

Anonymous said...

So frustrating. I was finally able to get all the keys and got to 190,000 points before running out of time. In the final 15 seconds, no 5+ and no special candies showing up. Those ____ "C" candies are just eating up my time.

Anonymous said...

I played this for days and thought it was going to be the end of my Candy Crush journey. But then I got to where I filled up the sugar drop container, or whatever it is. Then on the next round there weren't any sugar drops eating up the time and I passed it with three stars. This level sucks.

Anonymous said...

350,000 on my first try!
Of course it DOES help to have the charm that gives you unlimited time between moves! A lot of newer players don't even know what charms are - they were only available the first 6 months or so the game was available.
I still think that would make the level very difficult without the charm.

Anonymous said...

Tony's tip was the best. Just try to make colour bombs and use them immediatly. Works for me with the 3rd try. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

How many keys are there? Is it better to work the top or the bottom rows? Thanks!

Anonymous said...

This horrible! I hate timed levels and cannot seem to make more than 30,000. Oh well, I guess a lucky board may come along sooner or later. Perhaps I should use a sprinkle booster?............

Anonymous said...

I have just managed to pass this level after posting the above! No special strategy, just got that 'lucky' board. So, don't give up. If I can do it, so can you. Just be patient...............

Leslie W said...

Geez, I didn't think many people were playing anymore judging from so few posts on the last episode and then bam! 27 comments. Very daunting.

Anonymous said...

Took about 10 tries but I passed it with 3 stars. I don't know, just work quickly and make sure you get the 5 second bonuses. I don't agree with not matching the bombs with stripes. It worked for me. But don't wait for the stripes. Just match the bombs with anything, especially the 5 second bonuses and the keys. It's not that hard. If you've gotten this far in CC you can't be that troubled. Unless...you've been buying specials and not learning the proper strategies....

Anonymous said...

how many keys do I need to get to unlock choocolate sprinkles and 5 second bonuses

Leslie W said...

I tried to follow the video and it looks like 5 keys.

Leslie W said...

Phew!!!! That was nerve racking, but I did it!!!

Anonymous said...

This level is the straw for me. CC has become a pain. I know I'm playing well, that is skillfully, but I'm tired of all of the extreme luck involved, the slim, frustrating odds almost all the time now. Even after I pass one of their ridiculous levels, it's not even satisfying anymore. Anyway, it was nice following your blog Tony. It was the best.

Anonymous said...

I was about to give up on CC altogether. I really don't know what happened because I was hardly concentrating. It's a mystery to me. I just got 369,120 with no boosters. I'm wondering if CC is somehow arbitrarily programmed to deliver a virtually winning board. I was so fed up, I was playing rather mindlessly. I don't know how CC is going to survive with levels like this. A lot of people I know have quit.

Anonymous said...

I was stuck on 956 for several days and then finally just got lucky. I hate levels that rely more on luck than strategy. Yes, you have to make good moves but in the timed levels that's really not enough. I was about to give up when suddenly I passed with over 300,000. Just concentrate on the keys and timed candies and if you get a color bomb explode one color at a time. Now I hate to say this to anyone still stuck on 956, just wait until you get to 973!! It's another timed level and I swear it's even more ridiculous!!! I always think "this is the last level of cc for me" and then I pass so who knows , maybe I'll get lucky with that one too. Good luck everyone! - Katerina

Henry Leenheers said...

WOWWWWW I GOT IT WITH TWO STARS.............keep trying

Jane said...

Just beat it. 2390! One star. Can't even tell you hoe I did it. I didn't make any specials. Somehow hit the keys and the chocolate balls just kept coming. Never even close before.

Anonymous said...

Nowhere near again, only twice have I been over 100,000 most times have been well below 20,000 - think this will be the end for me. CC need to reduce passmark by at least 50%, I've seen comments about them making levels easier but not really sure if this does happen, anyone know for sure?
Do CC announce any reductions etc or do you just find out by trying each level?

Anonymous said...

Closest I've ever been was 197,000. I just couldn't eek it out that last bit!! So frustrating. Especially when you have to wait for it to stop cascading, thus wasting those precious seconds. To the poster above - yes, they definitely change levels. I've seen levels made easier when I've been stuck for ages. Also, a fellow cc player who is lower down than me said the the scoring seems to have changed from when I played the same level.

Anonymous said...

To Anonymous above, many thanks for your reply I will wait for them to reduce the complexity of this one, though I guess I will then be way way behind when I have recently been waiting for levels to be introduced!!!

Thanks again..

I wish they would release higher levels for play on the iPad, so I could use the unlimited lives available through clock manipulation. On the computer, no matter how many lives my friends send me I cannot accumulate more than five. That will last me about six minutes of seven to twenty thousand point failures, then nothing to do but wait. I have never even gotten enough keys to free up the color balls or plus fives that are locked down the sides. I keep waiting for the magic board that carry me through....like it did on Level 666. Hopefully, soon.

Anonymous said...

This level is just pure luck. If you get lots of +5 candies, maybe you'll win. I haven't, but once I got to 187,000. Usually I don't get the candies, and am done with 20,000 or less. I figure one of these days I'll win it, but it sure won't be because of skill.

Anonymous said...

Which is better? Working on the top or the bottom?

Ed B. said...

So...last night I posted a whining complaint about the higher levels not being available on iPad...today, they are!! Why didn't I post that two weeks ago? Now to see if just playing time after time without having to wait for new lives will result in the infamous "lucky board"!

Ed B. said...

DID IT!! Took a couple of saved up color balls and two 15-second extensions, but I'm outa here!

Anonymous said...

I got through this level on my 4th try. Usually I totally struggle with these timed levels. I managed to get lots of plus 5 second candies and made two chocolate sprinkles plus the two the keys opened up. Combined three of those with regular candies and one with a wrap. Got lots of cascades so that helped.
Used no boosters.

Anonymous said...

Got just over 198k on my first try but nowhere near since. I hate timed levels! My tip is to not play this level before bedtime because your adrenaline goes way up and makes it hard to fall sleep!

Anonymous said...

And my other tip is to post a comment on here complaining about the level. Got it on the very next game, 244k.

Cat said...

Played four times last night. Each time got all of the keys without paying much attention to them, just by using specials which came easily, but all to no avail. First try today got several wraps and not much else, but much to my surprise there were more than enough points. Go figger. Good luck.

Cat said...

Funny my troll is past this level but Im not...


Hmmmmmm. Go figure that one out...

Anonymous said...

Usually could not get more than 20k-30K points on PC. It finally came out on Android and so much easier. Finally passed it with few tries on phone.

Cat said...

And Btw the Admin has deleted more posts of mine.

Anonymous said...

Passed it on first try on my phone. It eas actually a lot of fun. Concentrate on getting plus 5 as often as you can.

Anonymous said...

Came on here a few days ago and complained. Today, first try, and I passed it! Just pure luck. Lots of +5 candies and got the keys pretty quickly. I worked on the bottom a lot, too and that seemed to help.

Anonymous said...

the problem with this level is that it freezes during play and it cost u valuable time and by the time it start up again the time just runs out.this aspect needs to be checked out

Anonymous said...

Got it 3rd try, passed with 340,000 points. I got lucky (of course) and got a bunch of color bombs, +5 candies, and managed to get all the keys and it was game on after that. Another one down!

Anonymous said...

my fingers are too slow for these timed levels!!! Need a lucky board!!

GRAHAMF said...

I've been on here before to complain about getting nowhere near on this level but it has not made it any easier for me!!! not long ago I was regularly waiting for new levels, now I am 40+ levels behind. Looks like the end of the CC Road for me..............

Rwbaby said...

I know this won't get printed but am so annoyed I have to vent! After numerous attempts I got to 174000 or so. Decided to swallow my pride and buy extra time. Not enough gold so tried to buy 10. Failed for some reason. Moved up to 50, they took the money but the board was gone. To add insult to injury they took away the life that was due to mature while all this was going on! Come on King, where is your sense of decency.

Anonymous said...

Third try, after my first two attempts got 110k I passed with score of 200,880. Totally choked but lucky I had a couple of wraps on the board when the time ran out and this got me over the line. After being stuck on 951 the rest of the episode has been a breeze so far. BTW - no more tips other than above - take your time looking for colour bombs and plus 5s, don't simply do mad switching. Slow and steady does win this race. AJ

Anonymous said...

I absolutely hate timed levels! Also am getting frustrated with earning Sugar Drops rewards and the package not revealing any boosters. It has happened several times. Fix this bug, King! Okay, I've vented, now back to 956 trying to use tips. JS

Rwbaby said...

Found something even more frustrating! Now cannot even log on to CC. Get part way, they have even deducted a life, but cannot get board 956. Is there a glitch?

Nppe!! can't do it! Fingers too slow :(

Thanks Cathy for the heads up on 202.

King has a new reward going on. Lots of boosters. I need to figure out the angle. Look for it. It's on my Kindle right now. Bet it'll show up on my phone as well.

Rwbaby said...

Dare I hope that the glitch is cured? I now have access! Still can't do it but at least now can play. Hope it lasts!

Anonymous said...

How many keys does it take to open the 5 second chests? I've only done it once and I know that is the key to wining this level. One less would be a great help, King.

Sunnyday said...

Finding this impossible, can't even close with boosters! Hate, hate this level!

Anonymous said...

I don't even want to think about how many times I tried this, but I finally got it with 243000 points. Just kept moving candies, making combos and combining the sprinkle balls with whatever. good to check if you can take out a 5 second candy or a key. Tipster is right in that you need to keep making combos and exploding them to get more 5 seconds. Lucky this time after I got the chests unlocked I was able to get a lot more 5 seconds. Other times they would just dry up. It was so frustrating. I do think that King could remove the "Tasty" and "Delicious" from these timed levels. They take up precious time. Sure happy to get past this one. JS

Cat said...

I found this quite an easy level. 3 rd try accumilated 225k. Got rid of the keys rather promptly and then used the choc sprinkles to my advantage in adding time..

Towards the end it got rather "iffy", but managed to get by the finish lane!

Good luck!

michelle mcbride said...

Gave up using my Androud phone. ..when to my tablet.
3rd try 275000 and 3 stars...
beat it and moving on.
match as many 5+
if you cannot match a stripe with a chocolate ball ....match with a key color. ...
Good luck all....

Anonymous said...

Definitely follow Tony's advice. Tried this level a few times trying to make combos and didn't even get close to 100K. Followed Tony's advice to match color bombs with plain candies - preferably a color with a key or +5 on the board. It kept making more color bombs by doing this. Ended up with 459K!

Anonymous said...

Another stupid level, makes you think they want us all to give up! Timed levels are unfair to people like me who has an aging slow laptop come on CC people, give us break, there used to be fun levels in between the evil ones but now it seems to be the other way round. Oh well, just have to keep ploughing on waiting for that lucky board. Good luck everyone. x

GRAHAMF said...

Completely out of the blue got to 197,000 when time ran out, paid for time extension and easily passed the required 200,000. Have been on this level for over a month playing it daily and certainly don't want any others like this...Bye Bye level 956...

I stopped playing 3 weeks ago. Came back here today to see if anyone has seen anything new. Guess not. I won't play when it's this difficult. I have made it to this level because it is challenging, but fun. Not fun anymore!

Barb Whitlock said...

Well, I've been at it for close to 3 weeks and haven't come close - most times - scoring many times below 10,000. I have yet to open the side bonus squares with the keys. I've sometimes had all kinds of activity stuff blowing up, etc. only to look at the score, and it's still nowhere near. If, like some of the posters are saying, it needs a lucky board....then I'm still waiting. The time element is not enough to even give you a fighting chance. Crap level!

Anonymous said...

This is the worst level ever. Think it's time to give up. I can't even come close.

VcToria VcToria said...

ANOTHER boring uninteresting level. CC do u think we all have EXTRA high speed? Not due to lack of trying to get it but due to lack of bad service from servers like Telus who will not upgrade our area quicker. Why do we have to wait for a lucky board ? Its level 956 pls give us challenges not frustrations. HATE timed levels.

Anonymous said...

I'm quick enough, and could probably pass this level, BUT after you clear all the keys, and use all the plus 5's that were covered....NO MORE DROP!!! Drives me crazy! If they would drop...I could pass it.

A1blondie said...

Passed this with 362,000 points after reading tips here and using them! Color bombs should be used on individual colors, not stripes. When a new bomb appears choose a different color. Make stripe candies, make wraps- these r the candies that bring down the "5" extra seconds candies. Use chocolate balls on colors that keys are- blue key? Use bomb on blue! Use bombs on color that most of your "5"'s are- don't lose your cool and you're golden!

After about a month+ of trying, I really was just ready to dump this game. And then I got 'the' lucky board with close to 300,000 points. There's no skill involved here - just hang in there, then prepare yourself for the next level - it will bore you to death...

Bad level. King want to slow us down so they can come up with new levelsthat are worth our time and effort tobplay

I get the feeling that the game makers will not give you a "lucky" board that allows you to move on until you get SO frustrated you'll be willing to spend MONEY to get past it.

OMG! 3rd week and still here. I did match 2 color sprinkles together and the locks remained locked. 100002 pts. What happened to friends giving more seconds? My friends are giving me 3+ moves for 957. Wonder when I will be able to use them?????? Here's to moving on up!!!!!

Charlotte said...

Wow... I'd had a really good round just a couple of games before where I'd nearly got it but ran out of time. (It's really annoying that the timer keeps going when you hit a good combo. I imagine that this is a big reason why this level is so hard to pass) But then I had an awful round where I ran out of time early on, and yet because there were a lot of sprinkles on the board (maybe 4 or so) this pushes my points up tremendously! Didn't think I would get past this one.

Anonymous said...

This level is utterly riciculous & boring I dont think im going to ever complete it I thought we got a minute to try & beat this which is bad enough as the most Im scoring is around 7000 points but just noticed we only get 45 secs King your having a laugh!

Dermot said...

Really horrible level. Trying now 2 days and not even getting close. The tips posted make sense but never get a board that allows for bombs etc. feeling good to have reached this point but now I am thinking it is time to say goodbye to CC

This is the end of the road for me . I've never come close on this score. You win CC.

Yea, the best move is to use a colour bomb with a wrapped candy! When did you ever get the chance to do that????? When I play I cannot check where everything is or I don't have anything useful near a colour bomb. This is a useless hint and a painful level. A so hate timed levels. Grace from DU

JSN: Don't know what you have to do to beat this level. I finally was able to unlock the cages releasing the candy balls and +5 candies, and was really going to town. Got lots of candy balls, including two I combined. But I still only managed 138,000 points.

Anonymous said...

JSN: 187,300 points. Does this level suck, or what?

Anonymous said...

JSN: Well, I finally did it. Was able to get enough +5 candies to keep the timer going until I could collect all of the keys, opening the cages. With more candy available, I started getting candy balls, which I set off to clear a color, thus increasing the odds of immediately getting another candy ball, which I set off against another color. And so on and so on. All the while collecting +5 candies. Ended up with 353k points. It's nice to be over this one. Which just goes to show that any level, no matter how difficult is ultimately beatable, and without boosters. Good luck to everyone and keep at it.

OMG YAY! CONGRATS! Wonderful! Devine! Sweet! Tasty!Delicious! JSN. So HAPPY 4 U. Sending out rockets of desire that I will be next.

Really hard level for those who have slow internet! Don't know if I'll be able to pass this or not.

Totally at the Mercy of a decent board with this level. Question is how many days, weeks you can play before getting totally BORED!!

Bobby Tall Horse said...

I'm giving this another day and finding something else to do. These danged timed things are not fun when you have slow internet and have to wait for all the google ads to load during your game. It's really been fun..but I don't need the frustration of losing because I don't have high speed!

OMG I'm still here since early July. I have sooo many special candies from all the daily spins. I would gladly give them up just to move on from here!!!!

OK, I read all the comments. Will go back and see if I have any better luck.

I hate timed levels at the best of times but this one beats all. I cannot get past 30000 let alone 300000. OK, this is a prank joke by CC to have to get that high score, right??? Judging by all the co0mments above, this may well be the one that makes me quit!! Fingers crossed for another day trying..........and if no luck it will be break time from this game.

Anonymous said...

For those of us with slower internet this one is almost impossible. You are trying to make the moves & the candy will not move...you are busy trying like mad but nothing happens for a split second....add those spilt seconds up & you just simply run out of time every attempt. Not sure how to beat this one when you are already handicapped with slow speed :(

Anonymous said...

I finally managed to pass this level on android phone as the speed of making moves was much faster. Got close the first time and bang, all good the 2nd time. The board also gave me lots of sprinkles to clear a colour of extra time candy making it possible to beat. Good luck to all :)

Bobby Tall Horse said...

Has anyone beat this game with slowspeed internet? If so.. please tell us how. If not..are we just supposed to quit? I truly do not see how to pass this with the slow speed.

I thought that I was never going to pass this level. I hate times levels as my mind suddenly goes blank! However, after about fifty tries of only getting 30,000 points instead of the 200,000 needed, I managed to get all the keys and then it was plain sailing and I ended up with three stars. Don't give up as you'll get it in the end. I was glad to see the end of this level, but the next one is also hard!

Why does king gives such levels? He knows very well elderly people like me are also playing. BP only raises when play such levels He can increase the timing or make it simpler. Come on king do something for us to enjoy Cc otherwise we are going to get stuck here for ever.

Well Candy Crush, its been fun most of the time, frustrating alot of the time, but I have never given up on you ... Untill now !! So goodbye, cheers, farewell. This level has lost you a loyal supporter, and I'm not the one you need to be concerned about, it's the countless many who will not post on forums, but like disgruntled shoppers, they just don't go back to a store that gives bad service, or discriminates!
I'v enjoyed the challenge, but levels that are not challenging, espescially for those like me, who have physical disabilities in their hands, the chance of passing this is impossible.
Bye bye - I will miss you , but, ho hum, there is another game out there, not controlled by King, I'm sure I will have just as much fun.

You're not alone Adele. I have what I thought looked to be good boards..but I also have rural slow Internet. It wouldn't make any difference HOW good the board is..my Internet can't keep up with the timed action on the board.

I have enjoyed this game very much. But, unless you pass me..or give me another hard stage to pass that isn't timed..or tell me how to win this level with a slow Internet..I too must leave.

Thanks for the good times though!

Barbc said...

I hate hate hate timed levels but somehow the CC gods did me a solid. Passed it first try, and with zero time left I had only 76,000 points but the cascades just started falling. Bombs, stripes, wraps somehow magically made and I just watched the point counter go up and up til it finalky stopped at 247,000! Dang, I have no idea how that worked but judging from all the comments above, this is my lucky day. Think I'll go buy a lottery ticket. ;)

Usually hopeles at timed levels so was not looking forward to it.First few attempts only got about 30000 then on 10th try everything just fell in place and got 320,000.Happy dasys!

Janine Marie said...

Got it on my third or fouth try. Started with a free color bomb which I use to wipe out a color....made another bomb and just kept after the keys. Once I got them unlocked, simply color bomb the plus fives and repeated. Added enough time to make the through. Onward.

OMG Still here since early July!!! Last few days been playing Dream World. That stupid Otis looks good compared to this silliness. I actually passed 2 hard levels on Dream World. I had forgotten what it was like to pass a level and play untimed games. I may be the longest one ever on 956.

Anonymous said...

I just completed 956 and have never blogged even though I go to your website whenever I can't figure out what is going on. I really appreciate all the tips. For this one, I followed the tips to just go for the extra 5 seconds, eliminate the keys, and mix the color bomb with one color. Those tips plus a lucky board helped me pass the dreaded timed challenge. Thanks so much to all you bloggers. I'm 75 years old, often say "I hate this game!" but keep on playing. lol

Horrible and boring level.

Byte, bye CC?

Think this one is the end of candy crush for me�� Too frustrating and impossible without the so called lucky board. Hate to give it up after getting this far but this one is just ridiculous.

hate this level.....not enought time

Right when I was ready to give up on this level for the night I passed it with 409,000 using no boosters. Don't give up!

Tried to pass this level for months now. I need HELP !!!

Anonymous said...

OMG I am still here. I did manage to combine a wrap with a sprinkle ball and then got maybe 5 more sprinkles and some +5s. I thought I was Hot Shit and Finally going to make it. Got almost close to 122000. I have never even opened the locks. I am up to 228 on DreamWorld and can pass hard levels there on 1st try. This one belongs in Nightmare!!!!

Darlene said...

This has been excruciating for me. Want to play a game that is enjoyable and fun, not stressful like this level is. Can't get anywhere near 200,000 points and am doubting if I ever will. Need a break here.

Anonymous said...

Just not an enjoyable game anymore. Why bother if it's no fun?

Anonymous said...

I must have passed many lucky boards as I have been playing this level a good month. Is there any way to get extra time without buying it? I have never opened the sides with extra time and bombs. I am terrible on timed levels!!!

OneHedgedHog said...

All timed levels play better on touch screens. Faster finer moves and no clicking required.

haganmd said...

Well geezzzz after seeing 155 comments I knew this was gonna be a bitch... Going back, taking my time and beat this evil level...

Anonymous said...

I'm not even getting close on this level. I HATE the timed ones!!!

J Tucker said...

UGH, I think this level is going to do me in. I hate timed levels and this is the worse one ever.

Anonymous said...

I played in the top half of the game, and after a few try's I managed to pass with a lot of luck a few bombs and quick fingers.
a hard level but don't give up.

Unknown said...

I will try this. Nothing else I have tried is working. Thanks for that tip and please keep posting.

Anonymous said...

Hopefully I will get my lucky board after this post. Nothing else works. LOL

Used 15 to 20 lives and only got as high a score of 154k.Thought there has to be a better and faster way to eliminate candies. Got my tablet laid it on a towel on my desk fired up the level and used both hands to play. Right hand for upper left for lower, twice the power. Passed 1st try 203k+

Anonymous said...

My first board got me within 380 points. The next ones were low. I used my last life that was sent to me and got a lucky board that gave me two stars. Timed levels are not one of my favorites so I do think you have to have a luck board to win.

Anonymous said...

OMG!!! I have been on this level since last JUNE! I finally passed by having a friend log in to my FB account and play this on her phone. It did not take her long at all. In the meantime, I had been playing the stupid owl game. I had played that tippy owl so much that I am now playing CC and constantly looking for the owl and moon struck.

Anonymous said...

Well I think I have had it with CC, this level has defeated me. I have been playing for what seems like weeks and have come close only twice. I have limited dexterity due to arthritis, but I am a plodder and don't like to give up but I think in this case I am going to have to, I enjoy a challenge but one that is doable with skill and thought. I have already told my husband that if he finds me dead clutching my laptop with CC still going it is because of this level and my meds unable to cope, :D

Anonymous said...

Lol for some reason if I am struggling with a level then visit this site for help, I end up passing the level in the next few tries. It's like CC knows ha

keith said...

Looks like 828 all over again. To save from going mad, keep a list of your top 10 scores and you can see yourself slowly edging nearer. It stops the resulting bored when you're aiming to beat your own best of 33,00 and the pass score is several million miles away. Then you get a board that takes you over 100,000 , then ultimately, the really lucky one.

Anonymous said...

Be patient,before you left CC. You have to wait for the lucky field.
Repeat over and over again, using of boosters will not help.

keith said...

...and you build up your stock of boosters while you're p[lugging away. I've got some way to go: my best is still only 76,000

keith said...

up to 107,720 now and adding boosters. And my lowest score in my top ten is up to 38, 360, for all those (the majority, I suspect) who are finding this next to impossible.

keith said...

up to 111,020, with lowest score now 44180. Interesting that someone posts that it's harder on a PC (I use a Mac) because touch keys work faster. As if it wasn't tough enough...

Thanx for tips. Just keep on slogging til that lucky board comes and follow tips to use sprinkle bombs and time candies as much as possible whilst top priority is the keys!
