Candy Crush Saga Level 1180

Hints and tips for level 1180 Candy Crush Saga.
Level 1180 is practically impossible to pass without boosters and at the time of writing I have passed using hand and hammer boosters. Most of the videos on Youtube are made using a lot of boosters!
Here are a few tips from members of our Candy Crush Saga All Help group who have passed, that may help you if you are determined to get by it.
So how do you pass level 1180???

If you get as many of the stripe combos as you can first you won't explode the whole board and lose all the mystery candies. The licorice can actually be helpful as it will block the stripes and prevent them from doing too much damage. 
Try not to switch 3 mystery candies together, if they all turn into stripes they will detonate and ruin the board. Match 2 mystery candies and a normal one and with luck you may get 2 stripes which you can switch together.

Before you switch any stripe combo look first to see where it will blast. Wait until there is licorice to block them from blowing up too many colour bombs if you can.
When you can't get any more stripe combos look at the colour bomb combos and choose one which doesn't have a lot of that colour on the board. Sometimes there are only 2 or three of the stripe colour and this will be a good combo to use as it shouldn't do too much damage to the board.

Once all the mystery candies are gone you will have to make the stripes and colour bombs yourself, but if you have been lucky and careful you may only have a few left to make.
Make sure you check the whole board before every move and try to anticipate where the candies will stop on the conveyors.
I hope this helps
I found this video made without boosters.

I have seen a couple videos on youtube but they were not helpful and I don't see how this level can be passed.

IMPOSSIBLE to pass this level

The hints are good but this is tedious.

An impossible rubbish level. Not wasting my time trying to achieve the impossible.

I had a lot of free switches and lollipop hammers from all of the free boosters lately. I passed this level by using a lot of both, creating stripe combos and moving them into position. I waited until I had a decent start with about 20 moves left and then fully committed to using my stash of boosters. Even then I ended up with only one star.

Hardest level ever.

Been looking for a reason to quit CC for some time! I'm free!!!!

I can't stand to play this level. I know what the result will be. Make it easier or change it all together and I'll come back and play. I see no sense in wasting my time more than I already do on this. Good Bye.

Anonymous said...

I've been making careful moves on this level. Trying to focus on stripe/stripe combo first but that's not possible for long as so many choc bombs appear. Anyway, I've used up almost all my free boosters and nothing helps. What a waste of time!!! I'm not paying for boosters and even if I did I'm not sure that would even make a difference. Anyway, I peeked ahead at comments on 1181 and players who managed to use up all their boosters just to pass this one are now saying that level 1181 is dreadful and boring!!!!! So.........what's it going to take? "walk away from the computer. walk away from the computer. walk away from the computer........"

Elena Scott said...

Ridiculous level, so frustrating 👿👿👿 I don't wanna quit CC but if u don't pass this level I left with I choice...

Diamond Girl said...

The striped candies don't stop at the licorice like they do on other boards. The tips section on this site says you can use them, but they don't work correctly for me. Ugh.

Anonymous said...

I have tried using the hints and was making some progress when the game locked up. This happened twice in a row. I will not pay money to play a game and especially one that doesn't work!

Anonymous said...

I will quit cc if they don't fix this today.

Anonymous said...

I can't go any further on this level. I have tried all the hints and watched the videos. I get all but 4 striped combos. I give up on Candy Crush!

Anonymous said...

So I used up every single one of my free hand switch and hammer boosters. Even got extra moves and thought very carefully about each move and still FAILED. Tell me how is this fun?!?!? So... I bravely took the plunge today and after a year and a half of addiction to CC I actually deleted the game!! I didn't think too hard about it or I would have chickened out and tried one more time like the idiot King knows me to be. I've enjoyed the game but level 1180 is ridiculously stupid and this time I actually deleted it!! Gone!! No turning back now. Free at last!!! Free at last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Katerina :)

The delay of this episode release I believe is because this insane level & I believe several more after this were difficult to install & get it so all the boosters players have been collecting with Sugar Drop etc will need used so people start buying them...They want more money & want to wipe out all booster surplus with this episode..This is not right move & punishes longtime loyal players...Its gonna I believe start driving people away....King I hope you nerf these torture & impossible levels & bring back honest challenges & fun.

I'm done! A waste of time!

Anonymous said...

Definitely not going to waste time on this level if only one person in the comments section here has passed it. Also not going to deplete my boosters so if it isn't changed, I'm out of here. I'm not even getting remotely close. This isn't a challenge, it's a waste of time. Might be the time to quit!

Anonymous said...

This is the third time this game has locked up today. It is always after I have had a good start with plenty of moves left. This better be fixed quickly or it is time to quit.

Ok so this is not easy - been on it for ages and ages - tried all sorts of ways and I just can't be bothered now. Never brought help and will not. I actually spent time reading yesterday which was great! See Ya Candy Crush

Not waisting my time longer with this kind of impossible levels. Goodbyeeeee Candy Crush, had a great time, but this one is not OK. Byeeeee

Anonymous said...

Yes, this is an awful level! I don't really see how boosters are going to help either, since there are already so many special candies on the board. The trouble is that they all blow up even when just matching stripe with stripe, as advised! And my game has frozen on me twice too, fortunately not far enough into the game to be really annoying, depriving me of a possible win. I nearly quit at 1000 until King made the board easier. Perhaps they will do so again if they lose too many players. Meantime, I'm just waiting for that lucky board...........................

Anonymous said...

I paid for the lucky candies but in this level they only appear at the beginning. Will not pay one more cent. Really thought those would help. I agree with all the others who have said, enough is enough, especially when it's not fun or relaxing anymore.

Pedro cordoeiro said...

It'impossible.change the game,please
OK

Pedro cordoeiro said...

No reason for this level.it's not relaxante and stupidy dificulty

Anonymous said...

I spend too much time playing this game anyway. I'll give King a week to fix it. After that, I'm out. I appreciate the other comments. Good to know I'm not alone in my frustration.

pippin said...

what's really annoying me is that it is (often enough) not 'crediting' when I've mixed a speckle & stripe; the total left to get remains the same. there are clearly other bugs as well as scoring in this level- the occasional candies that will drop and occupy the space between the 'island' and 'donut' on both the right and more rarely left side. grr, i don't mind a challenge, but crashes and bugs on a challenging level is NOT ok.

Anonymous said...

ı am giving up the the game. this level is only a shit

Beverly Westerby said...

This whole level has been one big glitch for me. The licorice does not stop stripes from blasting through, half the time candies fall and don't make the combos they should plus it keeps freezing on me as well. Getting extremely frustrated with this!!

Anonymous said...

I have NEVER said this before but this level seems totally impossible and I may actually quit playing. I have wasted so much time on this game, and this level makes it no fun at all. I have tons of boosters from sugar crush candies, but none of them--even the switch or hammer--seem to help at all. If this level doesn't get fixed, that is it for me.

Anonymous said...

I quit playing because of this level a couple days ago. Deleted it for good off my computer. So... I admit today I've been feeling some "cc withdrawal" so I came to this site and see tons of new comments. Yup, I'm really over it this time!!!

Pedro cordoeiro said...

Go one to the level 1180!it's impossible and stupid .ONLY with booster we can make it

Maybe instead of sharing tips on how to pass stupid level, this page can be a support group for sharing tips on how to quit wasting our time and doing something more productive! Candy Crushers Anonymous!!!!

Kickan said...

All the comments above make sense to me. I have worked so hard to collect boosters from the sugar drops and even paid for extra moves once in a while. I have enjoyed the challenge of figuring out the games, but this level is way to difficult for me. I have tried using the tips mentioned above and used up my stash of boosters, but have not been anywhere near clearing this level. Time to take a break for sure and admire those players who have deleted the game altogether. I am off to my KenKen puzzles and WordsWithFriends games...

Elena Scott said...

I won't deleted my CC, maybe Kung will fix it. I used to beat all the hard levels before they got fixed, not this one, ugh...

Anonymous said...

on King's website is a paintbrush booster which turns any candy into a stripe..... I have seen a clip online and the person uses this (twice) with other boosters to complete the level.... Am I missing something? Otherwise I like the rest of you feel the end is in sight - even buying boosters will not help.

Elena Scott said...

I've never seen paintbrush either

Oh dear, all the above comments have only confirmed what I thought - this is a ridiculous level. Not sure I'm brave enough to delete it yet, perhaps I'll just take a break and hope King make it do-able for us soon. Perhaps I'll even have time now to do the ironing!!

Anonymous said...

I have used up almost thirty hand switches and lollipop bombs and never got any closer than 3 combos to go. all the boards explode and leave me with nothing. Not much fun either. Have always been able to pass without spending money or waiting for a board to be made easier but this just seems impossible to me. Not blowing anymore boosters on this. I like to clear episodes as soon as they come out so being blocked like this is not fun.

Anonymous said...

Yep unfortunately agree with the above. Not just challenging, impossible and therefore time to walk away. Maybe time to find something more productive.

Leave the level 1180!!!OUT,OUT,OUT! It's very stupid and i want to play CC

Congrats to King.com on finally sucking all the fun out of the game. Level 1180 is boring to tears and curing me of this game habit.

This is my final level with CC. This is impossible to defeat, they want you to buy, buy, buy and spend big. What BS is this?

I used the lolly-pop hammer and the switch hand and made it. It was one of the worst levels ever!

so predictable and insulting. when king have made new levels to go to they will make this level easier to pass as always. if you get past this episode and there are no new levels waiting then you will have no reason to play or spend any money, however if new episodes are ready to play the scope for more money increases

Anonymous said...

I did it!!!!! 1180 done!!!! Yes, impossible without lots of 'hammers and hand switches'..and of course, some luck. And no, I have never bought any boosters and never will'. However, I make lots of effort to collect free stuff daily. With this one, I made sure i had plenty of ammunition (as i had wasted lots at first) and that I had the switches done first and still at least 25 turns left,.before I used any boosters. 'a sigh of relief'. Good luck everyone.

It's a cracker of a level ,I managed to get down to needing 3 sprinkle stripes and 3 double stripes ,that's as close as ive got in two days .I'm having to go back to previous levels to collect boosters but they have been of no good , i'm like everyone else here , trying but getting no where . I keep coming back to watch the video and hope that I get a board like that soon .

Marc Shapiro said...

Wow -- tough one. 40 tries in, no joy.

Anonymous said...


done! Used all the suggestions. Waited for a good start (I needed 1 strip - color bomb combo and 4 strip - strips with 33 moves left). Then I used 12 swappers and three crushers to complete the level.

I think Kings wants you to use up some of those free boosts they are giving out now!

By the way, the next level was pretty easy using the three pre-boosts.

Anonymous said...

I occassionally see a glitch where a candy is in the square making a complete row down(so instead of 3 in the box, there is a candy in the outline of the box making a complete row)- when this happens I can almost complete the level- anyone else have this happen?

Anonymous said...

RE: The 6 Sept post at 11:06 concerning the glitch where there is a candy in the outline of the box. I have seen this three times. Each time it has happened, the game has locked up.

P.S. 1170 is the absolute stupidest level ever. Unless the absolutely luckiest board ever shows up, I can't imagine finishing it without an obscene number of boosters. After several threats to quit, I think this will be the one that does it.

ooooops 1180, not 1170 in post above.

Level 1180...are you kidding me? Odds are I'll hit the "jackpot" on the free spin before I ever get through this stupid level.

Anonymous said...

If I had 100 moves I still couldn't pass this level. Once I get more than two choco bombs on the board it's pretty much game over.

Anonymous said...

This is the first time I have ever been stuck and googled a level and I laughed when 1180 came up before I even typed it. I mean it has only been out for a few days so right away I knew that was trouble. This level is not even close to being fair. Give me 100 moves and it would not work, shit doesn't even work right. Ive saved a ton of boosters and they do not even work right either. unreal, They just lost thousands of players because of this. The new levels have all been much harder but not impossible. They took ten tries each which is a lot for me but this level is just crazy and I am deleting it also. No reason to play when I cannot even come close to getting it and the one time when I had a good start the game froze on me,

this is CC suicide stuff. finally the monkey is of my back. no more addiction.

=====THE END =======

Anonymous said...

Same here. No matter how many moves you have it's unlikely you'd ever pass this level because once you get a pair of color bombs it's just impossible. If King doesn't fix this mess soon I'm done for good!!

Elena Scott said...

The closest I got one combo left(striped with cookie). Wasted all my boosters. Fml

Thresa Muglich said...

Keeping track of my progress. On my 39th try now, mostly I end up needing 3 Bomb/Stripe combos and 4 Stripe/Stripe combos. My best so far was that I ended needing 2 stripe/stripe combos after I had used 9 gold bars for 5 extra moves and had used 2 hand switches. I don't have the extra Boosters that some seem to have. Now on my 39th try the game has frozen again !!!! If I remember right I did have a life last year before my Candy Crush obsession. Maybe I need a break and get something done as this is no longer FUN. Thresa

Anonymous said...

If anyone passes this level, I hope they post it everywhere so we know it's possible--and without that paintbrush that I have never seen and I don't have. I'm not even playing it right now. I'm collecting orange candies on my IPad and waiting until this level is on the IPad. Maybe it can be passed on mobile. If you don't use a sprinkle/stripe, you will lose because the bombs will get you. Once you use the sprinkle/stripe, you can't win because there's no way to make the combinations even with boosters and extra moves.

Obviously all players who reached level 1180 understand strategy of this game so it's just plain ridiculous that so many can't pass it.

Tintin here. I think I'll join the rest and say goodbye. Obviously this level is unpassable without boosters, some using heaps of them, and I don't have many at all. I might pop back later and see if anyone has passed it, otherwise I have a pile of good books that need reading. Its been fun, but enough is enough.

Anonymous said...

Boosters don't help especially when the game freezes routinely. I just play it once t collect the candy and then go back and play other fun levels and collect more boosters. I am not spending another dime to pass a level like this or any other now. Spent way too much and it isn't even fun with these latest levels.

Chaiwat Choketaworn said...

It's too hard job that I think everyone who can come this level must be best in their professional, but this level make me unreasonable to try it... I will try more a few days before decide to quit CC. same as some game before.....

Crazy level. Best attempt I finished needing 4 stripe/stripe combo. No booster used. Maybe wait to play on mobile, have booster in phone that can not use on computer. I think it is ridiculous level but like many others, the lucky board will come.

This has locked three times and every time has been a good board. They really need to fix this. Impossible

I am quitting at this level. I guess I could spend several dollars and by lots of boosters but that is not the game. I don't mind using a booster or two, but this is ridiculous....like buying your way to success. I quit.

How about the fact that you can't use the "check" mark candy?? Use and there will be one on the board, but the game will not drop anymore. Went through 7 of the sumbitches before I figured it out. Think Kink will reimburse me for them?? Hell to the naw...

Well, King.com have truly shot themselves in the foot with this ridiculous level. This is the first time I've wrote on a cc blog. By the above comments, it seems like people are packing the game in and I will be the next if this level isn't sorted within a week. I have spent a lot of money getting to this level and I am not prepared to spend an absolute fortune on the off chance of completing it. Bear in mind King.com, you will lose more customers when they reach this stupid level.

Marky said...

To beat this level you need and incredible amount of luck... I just finished it with 9 moves left and only having to use 2 hammers and 1 hand. This is after having played it at least 50 times. The only strategy I could recommend is the one listed in the blog. Switch as many stripe candies together without setting off a chain of BS, wrecking the whole board. Other than that, just pray because this level is terrible.

P Montmarquet said...

totally impossible~~~~~~~~~~~~ have a feeling it wont take me too
many more tries to say the heck with CC

Anonymous said...

Add me to the list of people finding level 1180 impossible. Well, it's probably possible if the candies fall in your favor (like in most levels). But this level is requiring too much to accomplish. It would be nice if King would halve the amount of orders to collect... then it "might" be doable. And as with others, my screen has frozen several times on this level forcing me to reload & lose a life. Diane

Another thing I noticed is that the stripe/stripe or stripe/color bomb do not line up when they pass each other on the conveyor belt. Diane

Impossible! i can't even get close! I've given up trying until King corrects all the problems!

I can ditto every bad comment about this level. I have resigned myself to just occasionally playing my 5 lives. If they change it, or if by some miracle I actually get it, then so be it. I will not let it upset me. If no success, I will eventually delete it. Good luck to all.

Anonymous said...

I used to really enjoy playing but not anymore. I hate to admit it but I would keep at it for hours sometimes but I did get a certain amount of fun and satisfaction from the game. This level has definitely crossed the line into absurdity and now I just play for only 5 minutes a day since I already know what the outcome will be.

No fun in playing this Impossible level it's obviously been designed to force players to waste boosters so im quitting.

Tony said...

Absolute rubbish level. I can always see possibilities in the harder levels, but for the first time not in this one. Buying boosters would be a waste anyway I think, I have got this far without buying them so I wont start now. I cannot see a way of completing this as it stands just no way of controlling the outcomes of the booster explosions that the game starts with.

Anonymous said...

Ludicrous level, agree with all the previous comments. Annoyingly, I'm stuck on this wretched level while my friends are catching me up...I have a nice healthly lead over one friend and they will probably fix it once she's caught me up! She will then sail through it wondering why I was stuck on it for days and days. King, please fix ASAP!

Anonymous said...

I just want to thank CC for this level.

I tried to pass 1180 couple of times and suddenly realized that I am an idiot. Not because I could not pass. Because I was spending my time for a ridiciolus thing crated by some people.

So I decided to stop. Deleted the app with literally hundreds of boosters. Good luck to everybody who want to play and who want to quit.

Tony said...

The above comment about being caught by your friends who get the easy version is a very legit complaint, this has happened to me on numerous occasions, makes the contest with friends meaningless. As soon as it becomes obvious that their are issues with levels they should be straight on fixing it to avoid the above problem when playing a group of your friends. It becomes obvious within a day or two that levels have issues.

its a waste of time at this level. Thanks Candy Crush and good bye.

dirty vegas said...

For days and days now I've been trying to pass this level and not even came remotely close to clearing. Sometimes my board freezes and I have to exit the game. I've played the level over 100 a times and the closest I've came is ..3 sprinkle /strip and 3 double strip . I've used numerous boosters and even go back and do previous levels to earn extra boosters,levels like this are the reason so many people give up .

Anonymous said...

Yes!! I passed this impossible level with 10 moves extra I could buy with my free gold bars and some boosters.

Anonymous said...

This is impossible, gues we'll have to wait until it appears on a mobile device, iPad or iPhone, but through fb it is impossible. When it is available on mobile devices, it must be solved and made easier, that has happened multiple times now. You know, playing through fb makes us test persons!
I even haven't come close in this 1180 level! 1179 was frustrating and irritating, but I managed to get the 2 chocolate bombs after reading this blog in my first attempt, haha! Now, this 1180 is just not possible.
Cool down from CC and wait for the mobile availabillity!

May I give you all a tip:
I play through FB and on iPhone. When you login at the same time, you can score a booster on both devices when you click on the devices at the same time-:)

Well, good luck from the Netherlands (It's been a while since my last post, but now that levels are getting more complicated, I came back at this blog again...)

One word: Asinine

Anonymous said...

King.com, if you read these forums, something must be done to fix the many discrepancies that make it nearly impossible to complete this level. Evidence of other virtually hopeless levels ('til something is done about it) is when over 100 people decide to google a way to win, then give up by commenting that it's proving fruitless, even with the use of countless boosters, that they're leaving the game forever. There's no way you can or will ever surpass Clash of Clans (I've never played the game) in revenue if you keep this up. Most of us here get that as a company you want and need to make money in order to survive. We're willing to sacrifice some cash, even when free boosters have been depleted, in order to make this happen. Wise up!

I never thought I'd have MY OWN LIFE again, rather than the ones Candy Crush and Candy Crush friends give me (said in jest of course). Level 1180 made this absolutely possible. I won't be leaving the game forever, nor will I delete it. I will check back periodically to see if this level has gotten slightly less difficult to the point of eventually winning. But for the time being I'm out! Love, peace, and hair grease.

They say it takes 21 days to break a habit. It's tough for us who have played this game daily and reached level 1180 to just walk away but after 5 days stuck on this I figure I have a couple more weeks until I'm cured and over this once and for all.

I agree this level is beyond stupid. Games should be relaxing but this level makes you want to totally quit. It freezes if you even get close to clearing the board. Another stupid thing is that you can only receive lives from other people when you have 5 lives already. That stinks. After going through 1180 levels I can land on anything I want most of the time on the wheel...how many have every landed on the jackpot? Fed up. Fix the game or stop making levels that sends your soul to hell.

Anonymous said...

It's been a LONG time since I've had to post on this blog. I watched the video with the person getting this level with NO boosters.. pure luck. This is by far the hardest level to complete. I've played countless times and at best.. still needed 2 combinations. The best strategy is to get the stripe/stripe out of the way.. still, no matter what your strategy is, you have to worry about the time bombs going off.. especially in the beginning. This level should be changed by King to allow more mystery candies to appear throughout the game, not just in the beginning. And the moving grid in this game is to your disadvantage. And no matter what, you will blast all of your mystery candies well before you get a chance to even becoming close to getting all the stripe/stripe and stripe/bomb combos. The required stripe is the only one you can get. I've been waiting for King to end this game once and for all so that I can quit but this may be the ticket.

Anonymous said...

I've decided NOT to play this level until King fixes it. Will go on daily just to collect the boosters, but that's it! Also, why are the "weekend specials" [price wise] different compared to what level you are on?? Do you really think I'm going to spend $22. or so just to join the party?? Seriously!

Anonymous said...

We've gotten this far, so I don't like to complain... but this level keeps freezing when I start making any progress. I don't know if that's a coincidence or not. Frustrating to be sure. :-(

Anonymous said...

I have never posted to any board until now. I too used the words 'impossible' and 'frustrating' for level 1180. However, I did just pass it! BIG surprise to me! I had to use 5 of my free boosters (gold bars to 'play on' and three of the 'hand switches'). I would never have passed this level without boosters. I am on 1184 now. 1181-1183 were pretty easy. I ran out of lives on 1184. I only play my five lives and then wait until I get more lives. I have never spent any money on this game. I also had candies fall into the 'non-play' areas of the board and had the game freeze up (as described above). This did not occur on my successful effort. If I didn't think I had a good board within the first 10-15 moves I would just quit and start a new board. If I knew any tricks or secret handshakes I would gladly share, but I think it takes a good board and the use of some of those free boosters King has been showering on us. I do think that if a game is not fun to play, I would stop playing it.
Good Luck.

dirty vegas said...

You would think that after 6 days of trying I would come closer to clearing this level but in fact it's getting worse because every now and again my board freezes ,it happened a few times yesterday and again this morning , the game is already frustrating and has to be among the worse levels yet . I've used up every booster I had but its never enough , the fact that you have to spend copious amounts of money to pass a level in a game that gives no financial reward is getting downright sickening .I've made it this far without spending a penny but it look's like I'll be stuck here for ever unless the level gets modified .

Question for BJ: How do you get gold bars if you don't have to pay for them?

I've used up all my boosters and not even close to clearing this level. That's it for me. No more CC.

Impossible, finally got a good board and it froze up, as much as I love playing I am done if they do not fix it.

I really don't mind buying boosters once in a while for the odd lollipop eg. King has to develop the game. That is if it gets me through a level. But I can't see which booster can get me through this one except for extra extra extra moves. And that's way too expensive. Impossible.

impossible level, please do something than Candy is nice to play

Since last Thursday I have tried everything in this level from hell. It's not possible for many reasons. The main reason being that you have to start with 3 stripes in a row which hardly ever happens as all I get is the bomb things or the stripes just go off as soon as you make them or they don't line up as they pass each other. That's it for me time to quit after 2 years of playing.

Anonymous said...

I passed! I needed a dozen hammers and switches. I needed to Play-On extra moves twice. I had saved up a big stash of free boosters and gold bars from Sugar Drops so I didn't spend any real money. I wait for a good board where I made all the stripe-stripe combos with a few color or mystery balls remaining before totally committing with boosters. I was praying the game wouldn't lock up. This is the worst game that I have played.

I really hope they DON"T FIX 1180 because after a week being stuck I'm finally getting used to not playing. If they make it easier I'll be back to wasting time. Hope I make it another week and if they don't fix this I will be cured of this stupid addiction for good!!!

DaveBrz said...

Seems when I get a decent board or a great start where get 3 stripe combos to start the game freezes up or get the only moves to start is 3 mystery candies which blow up the entire board. About ready to give up.

Liz,
Sometimes I got gold bars with my free boosters. No money was involved.

I thought King's objective was to keep us all addicted so some percentage would actually spend money on the game. I don't know why they don't seem to care that so many people are giving up. Doesn't make any sense from their point of view.

Anonymous said...

lost interest because of this level...no longer care...will just play for boosters...unless they fix this and make it possible to complete

Anonymous said...

Bad enough that you need to use up so many boosters to get through this level, without the glitch of the screen freezing as regularly as it does. 3 frozen screens today, always when doing pretty well. The best I've managed is down to two striped combo without using any boosters.

willow said...

Esto no va en beneficio del que obtiene ganancias vendiendo "ayudas" porque lo que consigue es que llegado a este 1180, la gente se canse y deje de jugar.El creador deberia de pensar que esto un juego y como tal crearlo.Por mi parte uno menos, paypal y mi cartera me lo agradeceran.

Keith Carmona said...

If King didn't want us to play anymore, they should have just said so and ended the Saga. Hope they're listening and noticing people engaged is dropping...

I knew this level was damn near impossible! I got close once in the week I've been playing it and never again. It might be time to quit, I don't know.

I like hard levels but this is ridicilous. I quit. It was beautyful but now it's over.

i'm going demented here with 1180, i need a candy crush ambulance to take me to the candy crush funny farm.

Anonymous said...

I finished 1080! I just needed 6 switches and 4 hammers and 12 extra moves. I waited for a lucky board before playing all my boosters. I accumulated lots of free boosters and gold bars from Sugar Drops so I haven't bought boosters.
This is a terrible level.
Cheer up , the rest of the games in this episode are playable.
I am now playing in the next episode. I guess enough people have passed this level for King to open up a new episode.
Good Luck.

Tony said...

Just used my five lives hoping someone had fixed this level, but no so I'm off for the day. The more I try to complete this level the more ridiculous it is.

Anonymous said...

I LOVE THIS GAME,,,however this is impossible to pass even with boosters, i will be gone from cc until this is fixed and i hate to give it up ans im not a quitter but i guess i am now...shame on them!!!!!!!!!!

Tony said...

Point is Anonymous 9 Sept, you shouldn't have to rely on that many boosters to complete the level, I would also say that waiting for a lucky board is a strange statement, how can you possibly know when you have a LUCKY board on this dogs breakfast? It is the same rubbish at the tart of every game. This level will gost King a lot of players if they don't fix it.

this level is shit and the programmers also are shit for making it

Only playing 5 moves a day since it is so boring. This is no fun anymore and like so many others I am getting used to not playing and finding myself playing other games that are challenging and more fun than this level. King, I will be gone soon if this doesn't get better.

Anonymous said...

I finally passed this level and then the episode. No matter. I am deleting the game tomorrow. I used a ton of boosters but when I got a board that did not totally blowup at the beginning so I just went for it. 1 star. Bye bye I started playing in June of 2013.

dirty vegas said...

My board keeps freezing ,the level is hard enough without that . Every time I get a decent board the game freezes and I have to exit and loose a life ,this has been happening more and more .BTW..Not one of my friends has passed this level so I suppose i'm in the same boat as them ,but c,mon CC I'm not the only persons whose boards keep freezing ,is this a deliberate ploy ?

Anonymous said...

I'm still struggling. It's a week on this level not fun anymore. If this don;t get fixed up i thing I will be out of here. Lots of other games to play.

Hello Candy Crushers,

We have noticed that there are a lot of comments and questions regarding level 1180.

The difficulty of this level was brought to our attention recently. The Candy Crush Studio team have now confirmed that based on data from hundreds of thousands of players the level is passable and therefore it will not be changed.

We understand that this level is frustrating but as you know the game is a mix of luck and skill and with a little perseverance and a little luck you will get there.

Is the above post really from King or a hoax???

Anonymous said...


Someone said it takes 21 days to break a habit. Well I haven't played for a several days since it's absolutely pointless to even try!!! Maybe I'll get over this addiction and actually do something productive with my life. You know the reason we're all reacting like this is because we're being deprived of the dopamine rush to our brains. C'mon people we need to get a grip!!

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know if the comment posted 10 Sept at 4:40 that they are NOT changing this level is really from King ??????

Anonymous said...

I checked out the King support page and I think that comment they are NOT FIXING 1180 looks real.!!!!!!!! It is from a moderator for the page so I guess they are all getting a good laugh from this. Well it's sad so many people will now quit.

Anonymous said...

Keeps blowing up stripes that don't have matches and freezes. Clearly from my own experience and the comments posted here, there are many developmental errors. Very disappointed in this.

Anonymous said...

Well, if King thinks this is a fair representation of the state of their game, then I'm definitely done. I dread thinking about even trying 1180 now. They apparently don't care about the ones who have brought them fame and fortune. That being we people at this level. So good bye King and good riddance. If you've passed 1180, great for you. Enjoy, have fun, I'm on with my life and it's easier every day not playing this. I try about two games a day and that's even a chore for me now. Hate it. Lots of other games out there and not King games. I'll make sure I don't play anymore King games. Their holier than thou attitude totally turns me off. Money leeches is my best definition for them.

This one is a JOKE

dirty vegas said...

Every time I get a good start my board freezes and this has been happening periodically over the last week . A game should be fun and the players at least given a chance to pass using skill and boosters if needed . The fun goes out of the game after days of trying and getting no where .I'm sure with the many millions of people that play the game some will have passed and i'm sure some will have spent money to do so but not one single person on my friends list has passed and many feel cheated with King and CC hence the reason why people are quitting ,when 03 million people play world wide I'm sure King doesn't care if a few hundred complain here .There's an obvious problem with this level for many of us and it seems we have to put up or shut up ...you decide .

dirty vegas said...

That should read 93 million people play CC daily ... I'm just a little fish in a big pond ..

Anonymous said...

King just opened up a new episode (levels 1191+)
I see there is a fair number of people blogging at this level.

I got past 1180 using 6 switches, 4 hammers and 10 extra moves.

Talk about winning ugly.

I accumulated lots of free boosters and gold bars from playing Sugar Drops waiting for new episodes.

I think most people that pass 1180 use lots of boosters and extra moves.

Level 1180 is totally unfair but so is life.

Anonymous said...

Not getting anywhere with this level. I thought you were supposed to be able to get through all levels without using boosters. Level 1180 is impossible. Not a happy bunny.

Anonymous said...

I've never posted so many times about a single level. 1180. King can kiss my ass. Goodbye.

Anonymous said...

This is the most boring level I have ever encountered. I have been on it for several days now hoping it would change but from the above post it doesn't look like it. Goodbye. Those of you who continue Good Luck. I am tired of giving then money. it was fun while it lasted.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone, ANYONE, passed this without boosters or paying for extras? Just curious. I guess not many will reply to this if they've passed it since they're on to different levels, but it sure would be nice to know. Completely frustrating.

Elena Scott said...

Obviously, King isn't gonna fix this f level, already released new levels and shit. What I wanna see is that person who created this level passing it himself. Assholes. I bet got a Christmas bonus for creating this f'ed up level, asshole.

Anonymous said...

No way to get through 1180 without boosters(hammers and hand switches)+ extra moves(if 'Lucky board'...lol). I guess 1180 was designed to make players use all the boosters collected from sugar drops. Go collect them from past easy-win levels. 1180 is the most frustrating level. Players do need challenges but frustration kills. Good luck everybody.

dirty vegas said...

I was getting on like a house on fire this morning , I managed to get down to 1 double stripe and two sprinkle stripe and thought my luck was turning but my next game froze ,it's happening way too often and always when I have a decent board .

They have changed it to a completely different level. Just done it second try.

They've changed the level completely, easy as now people, passed first attempt!!

I have been on this level for weeks and get no where then I was just playing it again and it froze up on me, so I signed out and went back in and the level is gone, they have gotten rid of the ridiculous level

Anonymous said...

Wow! They have just replaced this level! I have been on this for a couple of days only, played about an hour ago, then came back to CC to have another go. I thought I had clicked on the wrong level so ended the game, only to realise that a totally new board was in its place. Awesome!

Anonymous said...

Confirmed it spazzed out on me and registered an error, reloaded the page and the level 1180 was so easy, i thought i had clicked an earlier level.

closest i came was 4 double stripes to match, was a fun if impossible level :)

It seems that King listens to us after all! Thanks be to King, I passed the new version first try. Onwards and upwards...............

Libster said...

Yeah, good move King. Thanks.

carmen hicks said...

I agree with all CC players who have complained about 1180 being THE most abysmal of all levels. For several days I've only played to give lives to friends and to collect the daily spin and free boosters. Was amazed AND delighted to log on a few minutes ago and see the new board! Yippee!!! Passed the new board in one go ---- THANK YOU CC for listening!! This was going to the level that let me go. Glad to continue playing now.

JediJones said...

That's weird, now there's a level lost to legend. Would've been easier for them if they just lowered the number of required combos or increased the moves. Any other PC players tired of being the guinea pigs for the mobile players?

J*Rose said...

@JediJones - you have a point. It would have been nice to see the adjustments that you mentioned. Maybe they will restructure it and we will see the board at a later level. :-)

Anonymous said...

Yes!! And guess I have to wait for the update as its still on the original get orders level!! No idea what I am doing..one game and wtf!!

Cathy said...

@JediJones- yes, you have a point. Any mobile players tired of PC players getting the first crack at the new levels? Yes, we have a point to.....

Anonymous said...

I don't how or why but I cleared this level first try no boosters one star! Lucky board I guess

Anonymous said...

are they serious ? this has got to be the most insane level they could have ever imagined. I understand that they need people to buy boosters to keep creating new levels but putting a board that is no fun, next to impossible to do even with boosters. When in a level you know within a few moves that it's a lost cause just plain idiotic. Numbered bombs , wrapped candies that destroy every chance, not enough moves. I knew that giving all the free boosters meant they planned on making it harder, that I understand, but at least leave a little fun and strategy in a level. I will never buy 1 booster to beat this level. Just keep playing old levels that actually have a bit of fun in them!!!

Anonymous said...

I had totally given up on Candy Crush. Got on my IPad to get my daily bonus in case I decided to play again later. Noticed they opened a new section so thought I would give it my 5 tries. Like others I thought I had clicked on the wrong level. So glad to see they changed it. I did not expect that. Thank you King for listening to the frustration.
