Candy Crush Saga Level 1257

How to pass level 1257, hints and tips by Allina Rumfelt
 You have to use the frog hiding in the chocolate to clear the jelly.  The licorice blocks any line blasts coming from the conveyor belt area so I wouldn't even try.  
The goals are to break into the left side of the board, enlarge the play field and make combos so you can inflate the frog and use him to clear the jelly.   
You only get 3 spaces to start this off so you have to take any opportunity to ding the blockers.   Once the frog is exposed chances are you only have a few lives left so try to zap him with a chocolate bomb so he expands quickly.  
Once I had the larger play field seems I got a lot of chocolate bombs from the cascades so took a little bit of luck to pass this level.

  1. You don't need to use the frog. I had the fortune to firstly get a stripe/wrapped combo to clear one level and then two chocolate sprinkles side by side that cleared the second level. got it out second try. 3 stars no boosters 81,500 points.

  2. This is not an easy level. I have been trying for two days and have not been able to move the frog. To the blogger above, congrats! I am hoping for a lucky board soon.

  3. Not a difficult level, got it through in the third try. Make heaps of wrap and stripe combo. I used the frog to clear the jelly and still got three moves left.

  4. Five tries so far ... Cleared the frog once with two moves left ... Suspect this is another case of waiting for a lucky board ...

  5. Got lucky..combined 2 sprinkles!

  6. Just use a fish booster if you have one. The fish ate all the jelly in about 6 moves.

  7. Fish booster worked first time!

  9. Noo, unless you're stuck here too long, don't use any booster! What's fun in that? It is doable. If I could beat it without any boosters you can too:) just make whole lots of special candies.

  10. I've finally decided that some levels are just stupid and boring and I want to move on. On those levels, I use boosters freely so I can get to levels that are more fun--not easier, just more fun. Levels that require 99% luck and make you spend game after game with zero choices on moves and zero chance of strategy make no sense to me and I've got better things to do with my time.

    Having said that, I just started this level. Obviously, it's frustrating enough that I turned to help boards, but I haven't quite decided to give it the kiss of death.

  11. I agree. After a few tries, if the level is just plain boring and a booster will do it I'm moving on!

  12. Fish booster worked for me...

  13. Used up every single booster I had--3 fishes, chocolates, hand switches, hammer, combos. All wasted. Can't get past this #!$&# level. I HATE when the only way you can pass is with a lucky board. I very seldom use the boosters and now when I need them they are worth nothing. I am done for a while. I can't take the aggravation.

  14. I hated this board and found it unbelievably frustrating. I hate the stupid licorice, and never thought there were enough moves. Then I got lucky with two chocolate bombs next to each other, which cleared the board. There is only one layer of jelly, so either this, or the frog will work. Good luck!

  15. Fish booster is the obvious cheat but I like to try the conventional way a good few times. But yeah, jelly fish worked once I got bored with doing it "properly"!

  16. fish booster was a waste of time....I got exactly one.

  17. I was getting frustrated with this level; never enough moves, cascades suddenly stopping as I started clearing the board. Then I suddenly got 2 chocolate sprinkles next to each other and that's all she wrote. One star and happy to be past this one.

  18. I've tried the fish booster a few times now and have only gotten 1 fish the entire time. Lame

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh WOW!!!!! How lucky was I???? On my third go, I got two sprinkles next to each other and off went all the jelly - 18 moves left, three stars!!!!! I can't believe it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. On this level you don't worry about the liquorice.
    Work on clearing the frog then sprinkles fall so bash one on same colour as frog then click frog on the 9 below liquorice.
    You don't need to clear all the stuff on the left hand side. Just the 9 bottom right.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Fish booster was wasted. Tried 4 times and got only one. Stupid level which could be enjoyable without the liquorice. Boring!!!! Btw, the previous level was fun and gave me a chance to gather many sugar candies and boosters. Grace from DU

  22. hate having to wait for a lucky board! these levels are almost impossible without them!

    ReplyDelete
  23. First time with little effort using fish booster.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Quite enjoyable. Break into the bricks then wrapped candy very useful in releasing the frog.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yeah, if you get any moves to break the blocks! Lucky you....

    ReplyDelete
  26. Seriously? I get the frog out several times but run out of moves before he gets fat!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Let me use the frog!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hit 2 chocolate bombs together. Game over !!!

  29. c/candycrush here
    Strange level, I didn't like it.
    Most turns came nowhere near even releasing froggie, let alone getting through.

    You obviously need to try clearing the left so you can make combos, stripes alone are useless.
    On about my 10th game the system threw me 2 colour balls next to each other. Game done!! No need for frogs but then again, no feeling of achievement either.

  30. Thanks for the fishy advice. I tried the conventional way and came close but not enough to clear the jelly. Fish worked the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It seems that the higher up you go in this game the more boards you get that depend on luck not skill. Seems so unfair that we've made it to this level and so many times its just a roll of the dice. Kind of boring...

    ReplyDelete
  32. After about 6 tries, I got lucky, two sprinkles appeared side by side with 6 moves left. Onward! Lol

    ReplyDelete
  33. Agree with above comments about fish booster being a waste. One fish per game doesn't help and just wastes them. Have to wait for the lucky board.

  34. After numerous tries over three days almost, I played on my phone last night and got it on my third try. With only two moves left I managed to get the frog full on last but one move, I didn't think i would succeed with only the last move, but after placing the frog smack bang in the middle of the jelly it cleared the whole lot. Phew!
    I hunk the problem here is getting to the frog, and filling him up too.

    Good luck everyone.

  35. This level is pretty much impossible without using a fish booster. Made it first try with that. There is no way you're going to expose the frog with so few moves! Stripe/wrap combos don't even help as the licorice blocks them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Fish booster does not work. First time I got two sets of fish and had two jellies left. Second time I had one set of fish. this isn't enough to clear.

  37. Playing on iPad - 3 times I have managed to grow the frog, but as soon as I try to place him in the middle of the jelly, the app shuts down. What is that about?

    1. I have eventually managed to get the frog fat but when I try to place him on the jelly he won't move!!!

  38. Yikes! Come on lucky board 😳

  39. This level has a bug, every time I try to move the frog, the game crashes. 6 times so far. So frustrating!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have had the same problem with this level. I have managed to grow the frog twice but when I try to move it the game completely shuts down. Now what??!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Exactly the same - I've grown the frog at least 6 times on iPad and phone and each time app shuts down as I go to use the frog!!! Very frustrated!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am having the same issue - this is the 2nd level where activating the frog crashes the game. Come on King. Why are we having to wait so long for these things to be fixed??

    ReplyDelete
  43. Using the frog makes the app crash. Seems king can't solve this bug, since it's in several levels

  44. Fish Booster.

    One fish = 3 jelly

    I got 3 fish = 9 jelly

    9 jelly = done

    You do of course need to match the fish, so there is a little bit of work.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Cleared 2nd try. Used fish booster, they only took out 2 jellies at a time for a total of 6. Made stripe/color bomb and had 2 jellies and 5 moves left. Used 2 hammers and done. Here is a critique for the proper and bored player. If you need to dig a ditch the proper way is to use a shovel. But if you had access to a backhoe which would you use? Have a nice proper day.

  46. Why do most people here seem to be getting more than one fish booster per game? I don't understand; I've used a fish booster now in three or four tries and never got more than a single one!!! Is this a laptop vs phone thing - I am playing on my lappy...
    Oh and for those saying "just make lots of special candies" - yeah well I'd love to if I could!!! Thanks for the great advice!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. ok..some levels are pure luck..before I know it i'm down to 2 lives by the time I even get to the frog..and then its too late to combo him up..another level i'll be on for weeks I guess....

    ReplyDelete
  48. Should have completed this level twice now but for some reason it will not let me place the frog on any of the jellies . Has anyone else had this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Please get me out of this level

    ReplyDelete
  50. The Frog will not jump onto the jellies for me either. I had this happen on another board that many people used the frog to jump to a separate section. Seems like I will have to resort to other methods.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Use the fish whenever possible. You do not need the frog.
