Candy Crush Saga Level 1261

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1261 Candy Crush Saga
Unlock the locked candies in the top left first to allow the candies to fall into the top right square, from there the candies fall into the bottom right square, then the bottom left and out of the exit.
Once there are candies in the top right work on breaking the blockers to let them fall through. Use stripes and stripe/wrap combos you can make in the opposite square, or matches touching the blockers if possible.
The biggest problem is the number of moves. You have to make every move count to complete level 1261. 
Once you have candies falling into the bottom left square make moves that will move candies in that square to get the cherry there in as few moves as possible. This doesn't mean you have to make moves in the bottom left square, any combo that moves the candies above the exits will work, so remember to check the whole board before every move so you make the best use of the few moves you have.

Only 20 moves available on PC, while on android mobile there are 50 moves with which this level became quite easy

Use a well placed coconut wheel & sprinkle booster to open things up. Almost impossible without a booster. Took 3 tries. NC

Play this level on android !!
On android 50 moves and on iPad only 20 moves.

20 moves on both of my Tablets and Laptops...

How come more moves on android? No wonder some friends sail through levels I get stuck on! What's the point in giving less lives on iPhone? Really annoying and pointless as the cherry doesn't even drop until nearly all moves are used up! Yawn...

I play on two Android tablets and I only have 20 moves on both of them. I finished this episode on evening of Thursday, Oct. 22. Used a total of 11 boosters.

I passed this easily on my ipad second try and then the game just froze. So mad!!!! When I restarted my ipad i was back on this level. So u fair!!! I even took a screen shot. Grrrrr!

That is my post about the game freezing. I emailed King and while they could not advance me forward they did give me a noce assortment of boosters for free and apologized. That was pretty nice anyway :)

Really a anymore! I wrote to King about losing my hundreds of booster when my iPad froze and they did Nothing!! Lucky you!

No boosters, just a good board! Finished by moving two sprinkles together and that was it! Second try

This one is FUN to do without boosters. Most enjoyable game I can remember in a LONG time. Way to go King!

I wrote the comment above and I played on an ipad. Only had 20 moves but it was very doable. Took me maybe 11 or 12 trys.

GRRRRR!!! After a spectacular start I failed this level because the fruit didn't drop. Clearly King decided I wasn't supposed to get through that easily

Wow to poster above giving King kudos, unreal. I would NEVER give King any praise! These levels are no longer fun, just sheer evil and insanity.

I guess you love torture! LOL

Not too bad once I'd worked out how the fruit fell. I played the level only four times and used a hammer on the last candy above the fruit to get it to the exit - on my last move! As usual, I reset the board to get a good start.

20 moves :-o

I passed on the second try with one of my coconut wheels and 79p to buy the one move I needed.

To the complainers. Stop playing if it annoys you so much. King doesn't care, I don't care. No-one cares. Unless you have a useful tip.

First attempt had a wrapped candy to clear the last brick. Need to check the whole board before every move. Wrapped striped candy very useful.

Yay. Maybe I'll get lucky....

I finally passed this level using 4 hammers, and the game finished and then froze..now it's asking me to replay the level..grrrr
I've just sent an email to King as well, see if I get a reply..I'm not happy to have to replay this level. I passed it fair and square using boosters saved up.

I like some of the above posts, had the game freeze on me just as I completed this level. How frustrating! I've been working on this level for days.:( Guess I will just have to keep trying. :( :( :(

Does the fruit not ever fall until you're down to 6 moves?

Anonymous said...

Fruit falls when 5 moves remain. I can't get past the level yet but have been down to only needing one extra move to do so a few times so it is doable with the right board.

Karen said...

Agree! Why does it take so long for the cherry to drop?

Anonymous said...

This is a level where it is very important to wait a couple of days so friends can send you the 3 extra moves. That makes this level MUCH more possible as now the cherry falls with 8 moves to go instead of only 5!

haganmd said...

Urrrgggg I need more moves please are a board that is in my favor ����
GL y'all...

I ended up using all 3 boosters @ the beginning & it opened up everything very quickly but the cherry still never appeared until I had 5 moves left which is really hard. Had to use a hammer on the last move to get it to drop.It's rigged. Probably like the slots in Vegas!
