Candy Crush Saga Level 1242

Hints and tips for level 1242 Candy Crush Saga
There are several ways to complete level 1242 Candy Crush Saga.
You can grow the frog using colour bombs on the frog colour and use him to clear chocolate and cream, you can just work on stripes and combos to fire into the left side, or you can grow the two popcorns and switch them together to clear the chocolate and leave the board clear,
My personal favourite is to use the two popcorns at the bottom, I ignored the frog and just worked on hitting the popcorns with stripes until I had 2 colour bombs, then I switched them together, which cleared the chocolate. Once cleared, the chocolate does not come back so all you have to do then is clear the remaining jelly. You may still find the frog useful if he is grown, but I didn't use it at all.

1242 is another frustrating level! Help

A bomb and stripe combo will clear most if not all the chocolate. After that, clearing the jelly is routine.

OMG, this worked. Used wrap/stripe combos to get the sprinkles exposed, mixed them together to clear the chocolate. Then got a sprinkle with a stripe and the level was over with many moves left. Thanks for the tips.

Another ridiculous boring only lucky and chocolates for nothing board...

I followed tip to hit the two popcorns, totally ignoring frog and left side of board. Kept making horizontal stripes and wrapped/striped combos to reveal color bombs which, when combined, cleared much of left side of board to finish hitting jellies. When down to four moves, I used a free lollipop hammer to get the last jelly and passed with 3 stars. Thank you for your tips!

I noticed that no one is mentioning the timed bombs. I can't finish the game before one or more of them run out. Very frustrating.

Struggling with this one. I've been following the tip to clear the two popcorn and swipe the sprinkled chocolate balls -- have gotten the closest using that method. The other methods I get killed by the bombs exploding. I've only been successful in clearing the chocolate balls twice, but each time I didn't have enough moves left to clear the jelly. Making the stripes and then getting them to the bottom is a challenge. The colors seemed to fall much better in the demo video than with any boards I've gotten. Guess I just need to keep playing until I get a playable board. Very frustrating level. Wish I could play this series on my phone or iPad, but 1235 is the last game available on my devices.

Used all 3 boosters, reset til a good combo was possible. Got a wrap/stripe together on left side (lucky) took out all the chocolate. Fish cleared last 2 jelly. Hate to keep using the boosters to win, tired of waiting for the lucky boards to happen

Cat said...

Followed 2choc bomb tip, used frog after that and got lucky on 2nd try.

Thanks for the tip.

I didn't even clear the popcorn as there is no jelly under it. I concentrated on the left hand side and cleared the chocolate and jelly in one. 3 stars.

Tried starting out with a colour bomb and put it with a stripe, but I couldn't get the bombs when they counted down. Very frustrating. Instead, I concentrated on stripe/ wrap combos to get the popcorn. Too many times one colour bomb exploded without the other, so I packed it in. Had to make sure I hit them the same number of times. Finally managed to knock the 2 colour bombs together which cleared the chocolate. Worked where I could on the left then used a hand switch and 3 hammers to finally get through this nightmare! So many times I let loose the bombs and wasn't able to kill them which is why I decided to go the popcorn route. Good luck everyone! This one is a real toughie.

Used a sprinkle & fish booster, reset until I got the sprinkle next to a possible stripe which gave me moves on the left. That got rid of all the chocolate & easy from there. Second try. NC

Sick of this game. Have found several others. Not King. Dread going to these levels on Candy Crush anymore. They've succeeded in burning me out. Can't say it's been that much fun, looking back on it. Sayonara.

Yet another skill less board. If you are lucky enough to grow popcorn without the cassading using it before your ready or lucky enough that the cassading doesn't cause a bomb to explode or lucky enough to create stripes and bombs together you might be lucky enough to pass this board.

Hard Board??? More like it requires luck to pass.

Anonymous said...

Used the two sprinkle method and passed in 2-3 tries with no boosters. That is the way to go on this one.

Anonymous said...

The bombs always seem to get me before I can grow the popcorn or the frog. Another horrible level.

Jennifer said...

I too am having issues with the bombs. Even if I try not to hit them and only work on the popcorn, it's inevitable that a stripe accidentally goes off and lets a bomb drop, which ends the game before I can get it.

michelle mcbride said...

3 days later...finally beat it.
Make vertical matches only....
Work middle and bottom candies....
Took fish and the other 2 boosters in....
Came down to the last move....
Frustrating level...

I come to this blog all the time, it's very helpful! The only tip I have for this level is to use a color bomb that matches with the frog. Once he's activated put him directly underneath the bomb shoot, one less worry, worked for me. Optimally you do this before any bombs come out

Anon lafy said...

Had to use three lollipop hammers on the last three candies, but worth it to pass this frustrating "insanely. hard" level.

Is anyone doing the challenges that appeared this morning? My game updated as well, I think there are new levels.

If you are having problems with the bombs, the frog may be of help. When the frog got filled up, I put it in the bombs column and wiped them out. The frog also prevented other bombs from falling.

Harry the golden said...

Very frustrating level. Have tried clearing popcorn. Once in about 60 games I managed to clear both and hit them together. Chocolate cleared but unable clear board in time left. Sprinkles just bring bombs down and never able to get rid of them. This might be the last level ever. Frog useless as almost never able to get it to frogtadtic and even when I have it removed almost nothing.arrgh!

I used all three boosters available at the beginning of the game and voila.. Done with 39 moves to go.... Crazy after quite a few frustrating tries... Use the boosters!! #NOTAPURIST

Anonymous said...

By the sounds of it---need a lucky board to pass this level. C'mon lucky board!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Ok. So I go to spin the wheel for the first time this morning and it said come back later for another spin! That was my first spin! Damn you cc king! I also don't get some of the booster it lands on sometimes when I spin! I should get any boosters no matter if it works for the level I'm on or not! And by the way, this level sucks. I get one popcorn popped and then I may as well quit cause it's wasted if I get the other one popped and then the bombs!

Anonymous said...

Omg!!!! Can it get any worse?!!!!!!! Been on this level waaaaay to long. It's just ridiculous!!!!!!!

I was extremely lucky and got this the first time without any boosters. Had 2 double sprinkle bombs and a few other good ones. Relief! Grace from DU

I'm getting really tired of this!!!! Wtf am I'm supposed to do,stay on this level for another month?!!!!!!!!! Smdh bla bla bla lucky m A!!!!!

Joanne Murray said...

Bollocks. Boring. Mind-numbing. Glad I got that off my chest.

Anonymous said...

Once again a boring impossible level. The 'help' at the top says get 2 colour bombs together at the bottom of the board but I find once one appears it tends to explode leaving the other one in isolation with nothing to explode against!

Anonymous said...

This level sucks just like the rest of this stupid game. I wish King would cease to exist.

Bill. said...

Very tedious. Manage to get both popcorn released exploded the bombs then need a lot of luck to clear the jelly.

Nancy Gillette said...

Waiting for my lucky board too.

Anonymous said...

Horrible level. Been stuck here for too long!

Anonymous said...

I've done all the suggestions before I even read these comments and nothing has worked so far. There is always a jelly left with no moves. UGH! Playing the waiting game again for my lucky board.

Agreed!

c/candycrush here
Was on the level a couple of days, often out with a bomb before I really got started.

Just got through though, with over half my turns left, without growing the popcorn or the frog & without boosters. Score was 3 star but not a high as in some other turns where I never got through.

Key for me was being lucky enough to have immediate matches on the left, so I could kill the chocolate before it had any chance to get started. I then got a stripe/wrap which wiped out what was left.

So it can be done, just need the right board, as always.

Another of those "why do we bother " levels that unless you get a good board at the start, the choc just keeps taking over and you are screwed. I am taking a long break from this game as I have had enough. I will try & find something that is actually fun to do for a change, good luck to all those who have far more patience than me :)

annie said...

Wow, that was easy!! Didn't use the popcorn or the frog - there is NO jelly under the popcorn!! So I used a sprinkle with a stripe early on and got rid of all the chocolate, then cleared the final few jellies, used a hammer for the last one in the bottom corner. Only took a few goes and 3 stars! Thought there must be jelly under the popcorn but that I'd try anyway and it worked! (unusual for me)

I guess I am stuck on stupid!!! I have played this level 500 hundred times and still not any where even close :~(

GC said...

I thought this level was going to be like the previous one, not very good moves. I too found the bombs counted down and I couldn't keep on top of them. I finally got a good board with combo's, I had to use two hammers to clear the final merangue then put two sparkles together. I was getting a bit panicky when the bombs counted down to 7 and I didn't seem to have any moves to clear it. But thankfully the two sparkles together sorted that out.

Good luck everyone.

Same the bombs get me before I can get a chance to get combo's to try and kill chocolate arghhhh

I've been on this level for weeks and cannot beat it ....HELP

Maureen said...

I was extremely lucky - used all 3 boosters (fish, stripe/wrap and choc bomb). Purple strip was next to choc bomb, board full and purple and 1 move to match them all - 3 stars - game over. Had tried without boosters and had battled to get any combos.

Anonymous said...

I've tried all the ways that CC suggested but not getting anywhere. Think best option is the 2 cauliflowers but very hard to line combo's up. Tedious.

Anonymous said...

Aaaarrrggghhh this level is driving me nuts. Can't get anywhere near cracking it no matter which angle I try. I don't mind difficult levels when u can at least sse light at the end of the tunnel but this is making me want to quit.

Anonymous said...

Tried following the tip to grow both popcorns, but even when that did work, I usually only had 7 or 8 moves left and couldn't clear the jelly. Then I ended up with a lucky board and got a chocolate ball/striped combo on move 47, which cleared all the chocolate and all but 2 jellies! I have no idea how that happened as all the jelly is double layer. A simple 3 candy match took care of the last 2 jellies and I ended with 40 moves to spare and 3 stars!! Crazy lucky board, but definitely not a fun level.

I used the c-bomb and fish boosters. I was resetting until the c-bomb was next to a candy the same color as the frog and the fish was on the right. I didn't want it eaten by the chocolate before I could use it. Before I got the right setup, I got an opportunity to create a second c-bomb that would fall next to the right color. After the c-bomb was created I made the available moves on the left before the chocolate took over. Then I fed the frog. Turned out I needed both c-bombs to gorge the frog. I used the fat frog to block the m-bomb dispenser and used a stripe and a stripe wrap combo to take out three remaining m-bombs. All of that had reduced the chocolate to two squares that were hiding behind the popcorn.
All together I got three fish. There was one on the board at this point. It must have gotten impatient, because it launched itself. I watched mouth agape in stunned silence as two of the clones took out the last chocolate. I don't think I've ever seen fish, when given a choice, actually do something useful. I believe never trust the fish.
I had about 20 moves left to clean up the remaining jelly. I was prepared to do some hammering if necessary, but I got a couple lucky moves that finished off the jelly.

Everytime I go to use the frog, the game crashes. This is the third time. I am on a new Ipad air with plenty of memory. Not that I was close 2 finishing the level, but had a lot of moves left.WTH!

I have been on this level for over 4 weeks now..just can't get anything to work with. BORING and ready to uninstall....

Suzie O said...

Finished first try using fish booster and had a lucky first move that took out the chocolate. After that the fish did the rest.
