Candy Crush Saga Level 1142

Hints and tips for level 1142 Candy Crush Saga
This is one of the most frustrating levels in the whole game.. If you are very lucky and everything goes right for you it seems easy. If this happens to you go out immediately and buy a lottery ticket!
Level 1142 can be done without switching 2 colour bombs together, but that is by far the easiest way to complete the level.
Don't try using boosters at the start as you will waste them and they hardly help at all.
Save your switch hands and lollipop hammers if you have any and use them only to get 2 colour bombs together, and then only if it is fairly early in the game so you have plenty of moves left to get the ingredients down the board.
If you can't get the colour bombs don't give up as it is still possible, but you need to get rid of the chocolate in the bottom part of the board, or at least enough to give a path through for the ingredients.
Stripes and strip/wrap combos will remove the chocolate but you need several as it will keep growing as soon as it is unlocked.
Be careful not to allow the ingredients on the outside to slip onto the ledge and get stuck.

I used a lollipop hammer to get the two colour bombs together, but the second video is made without boosters.

This is one of those rubbish levels that rely purely on a lucky board: usually only one move available at a time, and it's a useless move that doesn't add any value to the game. If you happen to disturb the chocolate, it's grown over all the candies before you know it. Any vertical stripies can almost be guaranteed to form other than under the fruit.
King, stop wasting our time on these rubbish levels!

I agree with the above. Just a case of waiting for a lucky board. As the tips mentioned above it is a waste to use boosters at the start. The moves are so restricted you have no choice. Come on that lucky board - I'm still waiting....................

This might be my goodbye to Candy Crush. I dont to spoil my time waiting for a lucky board. These kind of levels are no fun.

Anonymous said...

So little choice of moves to make, not even got to trying anything on lower level as nothing there to move. Hope the lucky board comes along soon or it could be the end....

kathy giles said...

I agree with everyone else. This is the most frustrating non fun level so far! It has taken me 3 days so far to get to 1142. I just may decide I don’t need this nonsense in my life anymore. I think they have decided they’ve made their billions and they’ve gone to their luxurious homes to laugh at people who spend money on these levels. So boring! I don’t mind hard but impossible???

Anonymous said...

Agree, all the levels in this new set of 15 have been interesting and challenging.. 1442 is just a complete waste of time.

I hate this level! 2 days now...help!

dirty vegas said...

The video makes the level look so easy ,but I've yet to collect all 4 cherrys ,my board keeps freezing and I have to exit the game .I've been trying now for two days ,would love a board like the one in the video ,I keep waiting for that lucky board and hope the game doesn't freeze .

I have got boards in this level which are impossible to finist the level. That's not the meaning of gaming. It makes it a Lottery !!!!
Byeee byeeee Candy Crush

Au revoir, silly game. This level is the perfect reason I was waiting for to stop playing.

Elena Scott said...

So frustrating.... Wasted all my precious lollipops:/ at one point I got rid of all the cocolate and removed jello from the fruit...

Joan Hazlewood said...

Why do they feel the need to put these ridiculous levels in. As anyone who has got this far knows, you are not gonna waste boosters on a level like this with the exception of lolly hammers or hand swaps, so its not as though you are suddenly gonna spend money buying the other kind of booster for this crappy level. Just another waiting game for the lucky board to fall.

Anonymous said...

In the end I kept using the wheels and used a hand swap to complete this level. Don't mind wasting the wheels as they seem to be plentiful. Level 1143 is more interesting/challenging!

Anonymous said...

I totally agree with all of the above comments. This has been a little challenging but this level is very frustrating. I don't mind a challenging level but how are you supposed to get 2 color bombs together when it is impossible to make one with such few moves. Hopefully a lucky board comes along soon or I am out of here.

dirty vegas said...

I've never exited so many games in the whole time Ive played CC as I have in this level ,3 days now and getting no where , to spend money on this is a waste of time , to spend money at all is stupid ,you don't win anything , hate being stuck for days on end on a stupid level , i'm totally bored with this level ,fun!!!!! dont make me laugh . done !!

Anonymous said...

I got this in only 3 attempts. Tried the wheel on second try. Not much help at all. Third try with no wheel,just got a lucky board to start with. Also used 2 free switches and one hammer to finish it with 3 stars.

Anonymous said...

Agree with everyone this is the worst Candy Crush level ever. Just down to luck. Finally completed it using colour bomb, striped&wrapped candy, wheel, swop and lollipop but there's no skill to it, it's just a really pants level and I've no idea why Candy Crush thought it worth adding. I hope someone reads this and makes the level easier so that others reaching it don't get bored and frustrated with it!

Anonymous said...

They could make this level perfect by adding three two move bombs.

Mary Immel said...

Can't even get close!!!

Mary Immel said...

t
hinking this is good bye candy crush!!!

dirty vegas said...

On my 4th day now and honestly im getting no where , Ive used every thing i have but it doesnt even make a dent , its mind numbingly boring , you make a move then get 2 reshuffles ,make another move and get another reshuffle , you can't plan moves ahead ,you just have to make what the board allows . THE only way forward is to buy plenty boosters ,so im well and truly stuck here unless I quit , such a shame to get this far and get landed with a meaningless level designed purely to make money and if you dont spend money your stuck for eternity .

Maybe time to quit Candy once and for all.
Ridiculous level.
Wait for a fix to this level or quit.

What a horrible level this is. Completely impossible this one and no fun at all. What moron did King find to create such a drag. JJ from NL

This is the most frustrating non fun level so far! Already 3 days on this level. I hate it.I just may decide not to play anymore. Not fun if you don;t have enough boosters or moves.

jennifer craig said...

Horrible, horrible level. I played it for about 5 days, never getting even close. So boring and so few moves. About five minutes ago, it suddenly gave me a dream board and using one lollipop (saved from the daily spin, not bought - I'm not giving them my hard-earned cash) I completed it on the last move. It's NOTHING to do with skill or strategy - it is PURE luck. Don't let anyone tell you that there's a secret to this level - there isn't - it's just dumb luck. Hope you get some soon, fellow Candy Crush addicts. I will be so relieved to never see that level again........

i dont see what is the point to make this stupid level to piss everyone ! If they dont want people to win, might as well dont publish the game !

Anonymous said...

Ridiculous level!!!! Been playing this level for days, it just seems impossible. I always enjoyed playing CC, now it's just irritating. It's just not worth my time or aggravation to continue. As they say, "all good things must come to an end" This level just may be the down fall to candy crush.

Anonymous said...

This is definitely the hardest level so far. There are not enough moves, have not gotten a wrapped yet so it is hard to make a combo, the chocolate moves in so quickly and hard to get a sprinkle ball next to a stripe. I usually have to use my sprinkle on a single as that is the only move. Come on King, give us a break!

Darius Clarke said...

I am just totally frustrated with this level. A waste of time using any boosters as they will be rendered useless the moment the moves are not in a critical part of the board. Argh!!!!!

Anonymous said...

The hints from Miss Cookie are great. I finally got it with a switch and hammer to make two sprinkles together with nine moves left. It's a very tough level but you have to wait till you can make those two sprinkles together with at least 9 left. Good luck. Many tough ones in this episode. This was the worst for sure.

Banya said...

Mystery eggs be like, "Oh you're doing well? How about a bomb or some more chocolate..."

billyrabbit said...

Worst level ever!!!!! I don't mind a challenging level but this is madness. Countless moves which do nothing get a bit boring after a few days. I think i might give CC a break for a few weeks to see if they make this level possible.

Lisa said...

Thought I had it. I got a chocolate ball and a strip right by it. Mixed the two. Got rid of all the chocolate and got two fruit down. Ran out of moves. Used gold coins (from getting gum drops) for 5 extra moves. Used a wrap to move a strip into place, and used a hammer to set off strip. That knocked a fruit loose. I had another strip I changed to get fruit off the board....BUT it didn't go off the board. Dropped down from upper half (I already had it out of the jelly in the upper half of the board) It should have dropped all the way off the board with the strip, it only went to the bottom sitting on top of 3 candies. URGHHH. I am done for a while. They need to FIX this level bad. Also it keeps reshuffling, even though I still have moves in the lower half. Stupid level!

Cybelle said...

Are you completly insane candy crush?????????? it was so fun for a while yours levels..... FIX THIS, IT FEELS LIKE YOUR LAUGHING AT US ALL.....

Anonymous said...

Tintin here. Yes I agree with all the comments above...it is NASTY....but I did it after dozens of tries. You know, I have got to level 1142, and only just found out that you can use the hand to move a chocolate ball. I never knew that before, I have not noticed this on any other comments. I got three choc balls that I could combine with striped ones, and about four hand moves to get the fruit down, and only completed it on the last move. Boy, I am pleased to be over this one.

Anonymous said...

Did it ! Managed to get rid of the chocolat somehow and got the right two fruits down. Then left got a wrap/stripe combo in the right place for the left two fruits and ended up with 4 colour bombs and 9 moves left. No idea why. I'll go and by plenty of lottery tickets today I quess. Simply hang in there. You'll manage somehow. All the luck! JJ from NL

FIX THIS LEVEL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This one is BRUTAL! Any ideas out there as to when these levels will be on iPad?

Anonymous said...

Whoever put this together needs to be fired. This is pathetic. By move 8, you know you have lost. One move is all for the most part. I just wait and let the game tell me what to do. Totally without any merit

Anonymous said...

of the 1141 levels ive completed this is the most ridiculous pointless level. over 50 attempts in that time ive only once managed to free the 4 fruits never mind getting them down. when your quitting a level after 10 moves cos u know your not going to get it then i think its time to call it a day. how can this be classed as enjoyable

Anonymous said...

Classes start tomorrow and I am SO thankful that I won't have any spare time to waste on this useless level! Thank you candy crush for the cure.

Anonymous said...

I don't mind difficult levels that combine luck and skill. However, this has nothing to do with skill. Skill will not help you. It is 100% luck and deliberately set up for it to be mostly bad luck. The only non-sadistic reason I can think of for having this type of level is to slow everyone down because they don't have enough new levels ahead. Obviously, I am still playing, so whatever reason King has for doing this is paying off--for them--for now. But if I take a break from this game, it will be a permanent one.

Anonymous said...

Only once have I managed to get down three ingredients. Stupid level. At least I'm playing less and doing other things that I should be doing. Maybe it's time to stop playing this game altogether. Too bad as I enjoyed playing so much.

Anonymous said...

A week on and I'm still stuck. There is also a bug as it keeps shuffling even when there are moves available in the bottom section.

I have never threatened this before but this really might be where I regain my life especially as I'm going somewhere without internet for a fortnight so might just not bother when I return

Anonymous said...

Stupid, boring level. No fun just making match 3s all the time - not to mention all the shuffling. And when you do get a vertical stripe, chances are the chocolate will eat everything. I've decided it's not even worth bothering with the bottom part even if I have a few moves there as there will soon be no matches and the chocolate wins again. Stupid, boring level.....

Anonymous said...

Not waiting for a lucky board, that is not how games are supposed to work. Removing it and all other King time wasters. Good riddance.

Anonymous said...

I, too was struggling with this level until I came back to this site for tips. Author is right about not being in a hurry to collect the keys. Won first try after that. Did use one hand switch to combine a wrap and striped and one lollipop hammer to get rid of a bomb. After that everything fell into place.JS

Anonymous said...

Oh, and I used a fish booster in the beginning and think it helped a lot. I have so many that I just throw them in at the beginning of jelly levels. Was able to combine them with wraps and stripes a couple of times. JS

Oops. These comments are for 1145. Sorry. JS

I think they did something to this level today to make it easier. I was suddenly able to get at least one fruit down almost every time. Then I got that lucky board, and I beat it.

NoName said...

I think the goal is to make us buy. Sad that it is making so many die hard CC folks finally quit!

Sad to get this far and get such a boring, hard board. Never thought I'd quit as I am embarrassed to say, I have spent money to make King rich. Guess that ends now...Thought it would be chocolate & bombs that did me in...

Glitch on mine candy dropping weird. Wrapped candy not dropping when bottom two are free. Hmmmm frustrating. Hard level and glitch. Hello help

Anonymous said...

FINALLY got 2 sometimes together, with 10 moves left. Got the cherries down to the lower section and used 2 hands and 3 lollipops to finish. I don't like to use so many, but I figured it could be a long while before I got that close again.
Also - just got this available on android and it looks like sometimes a candy on the top row doesn't fall after a move like it should. A new candy jumps down into the space below it. It happened several times, so I'm sure I wasn't seeing things.

Yes, glitchy for me too. On my phone (just became available.) Seems fine on the computer

This is so messed up. Fix this problem. I need my boosters back.

The Looking Glass Girl said...

I'd rather be lucky than good! I got lucky on the second board and got the 2 sprinkles side by side. I still needed to use 2 hands to switch candies at the last move since there was also a bomb. Just wait for the lucky board guys - no other way unfortunately to unlock the fruit at the same time.

Anonymous said...

Horrible level, I got 3 down so many times but not enough moves.. Finally used a coconut wheel, a hand swap and a hammer to get thru..

Anonymous said...

Got this on my fourth try. First three times I didn't use any boosters. Fourth time I used a Chocolate Sprinkle and a Coconut Wheel. I reset the board until they were side by side and set them off. I ended up getting three more Coconut Wheels. It was very easy after that. Finished with two moves left.
I play on an Android tablet. Good luck everyone.

If you're using a computer to play this level, switch to your phone, or vice versa. I found it easier on my phone. And, this was without using any boosters. Good luck, I hated this one as well. But, only took me about 3-5 tries before I got it on my phone when I switched over to it.

Fruit Machine Videos AKA FruitVideos said...

FINALLY! Got my lucky life. Only used 1 swap and finished with 9 moves to go. The first time I have got all 4 fruits free!

Jennifer said...

It is significantly harder on the computer because of the 'blank' spaces left under the cherries where new candies won't fall, also the chocolate starts growing as soon as you release it. On the phone, candies fill in the blank spots and the chocolate gives you one move before it starts growing. I was able to beat it third try on my phone with no boosters and not having two chocolate bombs together. The only issue is that the candies drop weird and wrapped candies and stripes don't always work, but even with the glitches, it was still a ton easier on the phone.

Anonymous said...

Thanks to someone for the idea....I used a coconut wheel and a color bomb at the beginning and restarted until they wer next to each other. And I also needed a swap hand because the final fruit got stuck on one of the ledges. But finished with 9 moves to go so definitely worth using the boosters.

Anonymous said...

I too did not realize a hand switch with color bomb was possible. Got a few good moves that opened up the board to destroy the chocolate. Somehow got 2 sprinkles on the board, then hand switched to get them together. Dropped cherries down to bottom, with one move left used switches again (4) to exit cherries. Lucky board no doubt!!! What a nightmare!!!

cms said...

Me too! They need to fix this level!

Anonymous said...

I got really Lucky (after the second try) but I used the Cocos Booster!

Anonymous said...

Guess I'm going to buy a lottery ticket! Took about 10 tries and no boosters on my iPad. Just watched for any ways to make striped candies to release the fruit. Had not read the Blog so didn't know how hard it was....glad I didn't or I might have panicked!

Anonymous said...

Same here... Super duper annoying!

Anonymous said...

Was stuck until I used a sprinkle ball with wrap/stripe booster, backed out until sprinkle could be combined with stripe and that opened up a lot of the board. After that I think I got a lucky board with enough stripes to get through. Good luck.

I am having the glitch on my iPad where the candies or cherries don't fall when you crush candies below them., they stay in the same spot which makes it impossible to plan any moves!!! So frustrating!! Please fix this bug!!

Wth King....at least you used to hide the rigging now it's just blatant....as they hang in midair and fail to do what the move should have done.

Thanks Sharon! For those totally frustrated. And bored with waiting for luck, I kept resetting till I had my sprinkle next to coconut wheel( from stash) first time I had one move to go but out of moves. Second time got it but had to use one hand switch for last cherry caught in corner and then one hammer and OUT!!
Just a reminder though- your sprinkle has to be Next to your wheel Not above or below it or you will have wheel going wrong way😂

Better to delay the updates than to bring us these kinds of horrible levels. Not enjoyable at all - tedious and frustrating at best. Oh and boring. Very, very boring.

If u use a hammer on the fruit & make a move in the middle level, the fruit will fall. Good to know for the 1 or 2 fruits you can't hit with a stripe. Worked for me & gd riddance to this horrible level. NC

Anybody have problems with the colors falling in the second tier? It like glitches and a different color falls where the current color should have fallen. So frustrating hate this level. About to delete the game.

Anonymous said...

Please,please fix the glitches in this level!! It is way too frustrating and boring to continue. I really think the fall issue is only one of the problems. We have all completed 1141 levels--come on King-- let's get some help here.

Van5 said...

Yes I have issues with candies not falling properly. My colour bomb should have dropped beside a stripe, but it stayed at the top. Also I had a wrap which just totally disappeared from sight when it should have fallen beside a stripe. Hope they fix these glitches soon. Hard enough without the candy drops messing up. Very frustrating!!!

Van5 said...

Well I can't believe I finally got this even with the glitches! Somehow 2 colour bombs arrived together in the bottom row and destroyed all the chocolate and dropped the cherries. Managed to make some stripe/wrap combos and vertical stripes to push the cherries down. Such a fluke!!! Hopefully the glitches will be fixed for everyone else. I was going to stop playing until the glitches were rectified, but now I'm off to the next one. Good luck all

Anonymous said...

After many, many and many more tries I finally got it ....not on my own....used a wheel and chocolate ball and luckily after the 3rd try with this they were next to each other ...it brought down all the cherries, had another few good moves and then to finish if off I used the hand switch and hammer cause there was no way I was going to play this stupid crazy level ever again....good luck everyone cause this level SUCKS !!

Bling59 said...

King must have had pity on me. After many days trying to beat this level two colour bombs appeared side by side. I switched them and Low and behold another two appeared side by side. I switched those and it was all over. I'm so relieved to be moving on.

Anonymous said...

Great advice about the two colour bombs! Used hand switches to make second bomb and then hand switches to move it beside other one. Used four altogether , but worth it to get past this level .

RS said...

I passed this level about 4 days ago but forgot to come here and vent my hatred for it. Normally I roll my eyes at comments on here moaning how the level is hard and that "King just want your money" which wouldn't happen if you didn't pay lol but my god, this was a HORRIBLE level. And it cheated a lot (I have read the above comments and now realise these are glitches), like on many occasions I got a colour stripe or a wrap next to a colour bomb, went to activate it and then it just turned into chocolate! And did anyone else find about 90% of the mystery candies was more chocolate or more blocks? I got no more than 10 actual useful ones from all the times I played this. So glad to be off it. This is my first time commenting here, I just had to, I hate this level so much. It's so crap.

amazon queen said...

Even more tedious than 1107, and that was bad enough......

amazon queen said...

Well blow me down. Posted the above comment, then the very next game was a dream. Easy, 3 stars! Delighted.

SUPER dumb level!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I had a Sprinkle Color Bomb and a Stripe which I combined on the second move. This gave me some room to play on the bottom half where all the chocolate forms. I got rid of all the chocolate and it didn't come back. Then I focused on the top level and I won. This was after about 10 tries.

Good luck! SugarCat

Leslie W said...

Brutal level! I used a coconut wheel to get things started, I used a hand switch to move a stripe under the last cherry and once everything opened up and the chocolate was gone I ended with 2 stars, BUT the game only gave me one star......

Bobbie-Jane said...

Finally, after using a wheel with every attempt, I passed. 2 stars. Wheel is the key.

steven franke said...

I used a coconut wheel and color bomb booster on this level around my 20th try. Mixed them together at the start of level. Beat the level with 7 moves left. Only thing that worked for me

LynnR said...

Need at least 50 moves for this level. They only gave us 30.

Definite glitches for me on this one on my Android phone. Candies and fruit get "stuck" in a couple of spots in the row right below the fruit. Hard to pass when it doesn't work like it should!

Millie said...

Coconut wheel and color bomb together - finally!!! I do not get to spin the wheel on my phone but do on my computer. Anybody else not get the wheel on the phone?

Anna said...

TOTALLY glitchy. Candies don't drop as they usually do. Vertical stripes do not always send everything to the bottom. Needs programming attention!!

Bill. said...

Could only progress on Pc on phone fruit/jelly would not drop normally. Still needed a lot of luck with combinations. Very tedious.

Anonymous said...

Got it on my second try! Making use of coconut wheel and stripe & wrap boosters, I reset the games until I had the coconut wheel and the wrap next to each other sitting on the bricks. Stwitched the wheel and wrapped candy to break the wall of bricks and to get more room to play. Hope this helps.

Anonymous said...

Hi it's Kath... I agree with all of the above.. Been on this for daaayyyysssss... Very few possible moves to make and I get very sick of just shuffling candies.. Don't like using the boosters unless I've been stuck for a while, but tried a few and even they don't seem to help. Closest was 2 candies down.. This level SUCKS!!!!!

One cherry left, all bottom board clear, 12 moves left. Yep, you guessed it. It fell onto the ledge and no way of switching it sideways. In hindsight, wish I'd bought a hand switch but I didn't know then that this level was going to be so awful ...

This is where King making $230,000 a day. They in business to make money. This level made for 2 things: 1 is for you to spend money. 2 is to slowwww u down so they have time to make more level. Otherwise, there is no point for them to make more level.

Ps. Still stuck on this sh tty level.

Anonymous said...

I have attempted this level well over 100 times and never came close. Today, I was able to get all of the fruits in the lower level with 15 moves left, although I still had some blockers. I studied every move for quite some time before acting on it. I had to use one hand switch and a hammer and finally passed the level with two moves remaining. CC said I'd completed the level! But, NO!!!!! The screen froze and never advanced to the next level!!! Had to reset and guess where it took me???? Yep, right back to 1142!! I'm over this! I swore I'd stick this out, but not after completing this and then not getting credit for it!! This is just plain PITIFUL!

Anonymous said...

One cherry left, bottom board cleared and yes it happened... Fell on the ledge with no way to move it.... Done with cc..

Anonymous said...

King must have registered the complaints because I got through this relatively easy. I just started over everytime the chocolates started taking over the board and all of a sudden I was done. No boosters. There were stripes and chocolate sprinkles in abundance and in the right places. Hang in there fellow crushers. You'll get the lucky board. I used an ipad.

Anonymous said...

To pass this level you will need a minimum of 6 switch hands, 6 lollipop hammers, 1 chocolate bomb and 1 coconut wheel to begin game. Keep resetting board until you can switch chocolate bomb and coconut wheel beside each other in top half only (hit them together before you make any other moves) and good luck. I'm still trying but it takes a while to let boosters buid up.

Anonymous said...

Finally changed the way I was playing after 3 days. I quit making the obvious moves, like 3 in a row to clear jelly on the bottom of the top segment and would do a match elsewhere that appeared worthless. The board responded with setups, sometimes two. After 3 times playing this way I beat it. One star but that is fine

Anonymous said...

A couple of people mentioned resetting the board to get two bombs together. How do I reset the board???? If I reset, it resets the entire level back to the beginning.

Anon lafy said...

I used all three boosters several times, and on my winning 'go' I used two switch hands, plus 5 extra lives from my gold bars - a lot of boosters, but hey, it's done and it really was a horrible level, so well worth it. I couldn't get two sprinkles next to each other.
Sorry no useful tips, except to say that those 'free' boosters won with sugar drops are there to be used.

I spent lots of time on this level then did what I do on such occasions - came here and read the comments. Then went back to the game and second try got a lucky board. No double sprinkles but I got a couple of wrapped/striped beside each other and the chocolate fell away and the cherries were released. No boosters or hammers/switchers needed! Phew!

Anonymous said...

Now, THAT'S the kind of help this board is great for. Not a bunch of people crying that they're going to quit the game because it's too haaaard.

I got through it, too, after about a week of trying. Managed to get a couple of chocolate/striped combos and it cleared everything out with a chain reaction.

Next time some of you want to whine that THIS is the board that will end the game for you, look at some of your friends' progress. They've obviously conquered it.

There are three boosters that you MUST use at this level! 1: the coconut-wheel. 2: the hammers to break the blockers and candies below and 3: the hands to switch candies below. That's the way to beat this nasty level. Be sure you've enough in your storage while I used a lot! Good luck, greet from Holland, KC.

It can be done.

an anyone remember what levels we can get candies to get some boosters? I dont think I can do this level...so would like to go back and earn some of the freebies

Anonymous said...

finally made it… Had to use 3 lollipop hammers and one free switch :-(
Coconut wheel (even combined with colour bomb) did not help at all…

Cane here after 5 lives used and got it next go - funny how that happens so often?!
Got all cherries to bottom section and used 3 hand switches from sugar drop rewards - 2 moves left and 2 stars -RESULT

smarty buzz said...

At last!!! After 2 days of playing this hideous level, managed to get 2 colour bombs side by side ! It can be done without buying boosters but be patient for that lucky board.

Watching both videos is depressing......Like seriously how often do you get a board like those!!! This game is turning in to a farce and it is almost time to quit. I have no boosters available for this level so I am basically screwed unless I pay for them, Good on you CC!!

This level is yet another reminder as to why I don't play this game very much any more. Who are the idiots who they hire nowadays to design these levels? This MIGHT be playable if there was either no chocolate or no creme or 100 moves!

It can be done! Listen to the advice of the poster who used a coconut wheel and sprinkle bomb booster, then waited for a board where they were side by side. It works! I came here looking for help after just a couple of tries at this level. It was obviously going to be miserable. I read through a ton of angry posts and then came to the one suggesting this tactic. I tried it and it worked the first time! I got the three coconut wheels that usually show up with that booster. Combined it the first time with the sprinkle bomb, the second with just a normal candy, then - on my very last move (although I was prepared to buy the extra moves if I needed to finish since I was so close)I was able to combine it with a striped candy. It worked and I'm done with this level!! Please try it if you don't get that "lucky" board. Good luck, and thanks to whoever posted this helpful tip.

I took the advice of using a sprinkle/coconut wheel combo. It worked on the second attempt. MY ADVICE: Select these two from your bank and keep resetting the board until they are side by side in the upper level with the SRINKLE under one of the fruits (on my first attempt with a wheel under a fruit - all fruit dropped but the one over the wheel. I lost valuable moves getting that last fruit free). The result was all four fruit free in the upper section and no chocolate in the lower section. I then a decent chance of beating this. Think through each move and make each one count. I was able to combine a second wheel with a stripe and that, plus two switches, did it for me. Good luck and don't give up.

A new level of stupid for you CC

Got lucky with three wraps next to each other in the bottom. Then used up all my lollipop hammers and hand switches to finish. Did not like this level at all!

Deedle said...

I think 666, 281, 751, 344, 78. Try those. Almost afraid to try this level after reading comments...Any tricks you know/find,please share

Deedle said...

Are others of you getting a new booster... It shuffles the board, and uses 3 of your gold bars. I play on Android mobile phone

Deedle said...

I used tips from you good crushers, ( so thankful for all of you), and started with a sprinkle plus a coconut wheel booster. BUT. I goofed, and switched wrong things,when these two boosters were actually side by side. I did pass with 2 stars, even tho i didn't even get to or need to use boosters. Lucky board and took my time...I think it was on my 10th game on this level. Just keep playing

This level is stupid and boring.

After reading the comments I was sure I this would be the one that would make me quit. But I was able to beat it on my 6th try. Try to clear as many of the cream blockers as possible before making stripes or stripe wrap combos. Once you do that the chocolate will begin to grow. If you can clear most of the blocks then you can work on the bottom. I used a sprinkle ball and waited to use it until most of the blocks on the top were clear. I used it on the color that had the most special candies in the bottom. Then bam! I had to use a lollipop to clear the last block so that my last cherry could escape. Good luck, you can do this level!!!!

Barbc said...

I just don't see how this level is passable. I've been stuck for two weeks, longest I've been stuck since the first 100 levels! Tried the sprinkle/coconut wheel strategy twice, no luck. Tried clearing cream first, but there just isn't enuf moves once you get it cleared, to start on the bottom. Never said this before, but this might be it for me and CC. This level is just so tedious, no fun at all, why waste any more of my life on it!

Barbc said...

Finally passed this s$&@?y level. no boosters, no strategy, just waited for the CC gods to let me pass.

Caroline said...

OMG This is an impossible level!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! Stupid 1142 made me use up all my boosters... grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

Anonymous said...

The most stupid ass level so far!

Anonymous said...

Just reading everyone's thoughts and comments makes me cringe because I know it is near to impossible to beat this level without a lucky board, a lot of boosters and more than likely.....paying to get through it. I don't understand why the ptb can't come up with a way to pass a hard level like this without using money. I may have to leave the game for awhile and see if it gets a revamp on this insane level.

Rita Haider said...

What a bunch of garbage. This level is pointless and may be the end of my addiction.

By the comments I really need a lucky board - hopefully soon please 😉

This is by far the worst level. Hardly ever get a good board and when I do, it never gives me any good combos. Striped candies almost never appear in the same column as the cherries and then they go off and start the chocolate multiplying with no chance to stop them. One time (out of about 50) I got 3 cherries home and was one move away from the fourth when it inexplicably moved into the far corner square. Tried to use a magic hand to move it back, but it wouldn't work. If King is trying to make me quit this game, they are about to succeed.

I was able to pass this level with 5 additional moves. No boosters, no special candies. The only thing you need is additional moves, that's all this level is lacking.

I'm so bored with this level, I've started playing it with my eyes closed. Seems as likely to work as the eyes open way!

Anonymous said...

Have to hand it to cc/king, this is far and away the most pointless level so far. Is it even possible to pass without spending a fortune?

Anonymous said...

Unbelievable, still waiting for my lucky board!

connie said...

Nice. Get nowhere on 5 lives. Save time wasted here to do something more productive and save money I might have spent on some other level to buy moves or boosters

I don't like to complain about the design of a level. This one is certainly hard, but King have made
it so easy to accumulate boosters. Knowing when and how to use them is now part of the skill
required. When the developers are being obnoxious, as on this level, I don't waste my time. I
immediately reach for boosters.

That said, this level is a complete fraud. As others have pointed out, the ingredients don't
immediately fall across the gap, a behavior unique to this level. The Easter eggs rarely (never?)
turn into anything useful. The ingredients fall sideways to land on the ledges. Combinations are not
implemented correctly or consistently.

My own experience is I passed the level on the second attempt when I started with a color bomb-wheel
combo, as others have advised. I also needed a handful of hammers. On the first attempt the
bomb-wheel combo behaved correctly and triggered a v-stripe in each column. On the second attempt
the bomb persisted leaving one column unhit by a stripe. Of course it was a column with an
ingredient, hence the need for hammers. It's possible it depends on whether you drag the bomb onto
the wheel or the wheel onto the bomb. The first time I dragged the wheel onto the bomb. I don't
remember what I did the second time. I did get two additional wheels, although one was hit
immediately and wandered off uselessly. Interestingly it started raining wheels after sugar crush.
I got as many wheels after completing the level as before.

I enjoy this blog for the tips. Reading that others have passed a hard level is encouraging. And
so is reading that others are struggling. It tells me I'm not alone. I don't mind playing hard
levels, but I object to King randomly changing the rules of the game. I hope it isn't a sign of
things to come.

This is the most comments I have ever seen about a level.
I have become so frustrated w Level 1142 that I haven't played Candy Crush
in daze. I am finding I don't miss it! At this level we are all fairly skilled
and this level is an insult! And these tips are useless as I don't have stores of special candies at my disposal. Do you guys spend money on this?
Feeling relaxed instead of frustrated. I like it! Buh bye CC

Yay I love coming here cos I read most of the tips and I usually get it straight away. Thanku!!!
Used my boosters of colour bomb and coconut wheel, kept resetting till they were up the top. I used hand switch, to put them together, making sure one booster was under a fruit. They all dropped and firstly got rid of the chocolate. Combined wrap and stripe, which magically just appeared. Used a lollipop hammer, bought five more moves on last one and then I passed! Woo hoo!! Thanku, Thanku, Thanku

After reading the comments here I went back and after a few tries managed to get the last two cherries to the bottom with one move left. I used three free switches to finish it off. Didn't want to take my chances on anything better.
