Candy Crush Saga Level 1268

How to pass level 1268 Candy Crush Saga.
Hints and tips for level 1268 from Allina Rumfelt
 Level 1268 seems to be the bad boy of the bunch. Bottom line with this one is how good are you at making combos? You will need loads of combos to break through all the blockers. At this stage of the game we all know how to make candy combos so here is some other really good tips from one of our star players called Advanced Tactics.  Make sure not to get "walled" and forget to search up top for these candy combo opportunities.  A big candy combo is far better than a small 3-4 candy move.

This is ridiculous. Need 20 more moves to 'nerf' it. problem is that you waste 20 moves just to free up space to make a few combos. until then its just take the useless move the game gives you. wait for a lucky board, boring!!!!

Vincent Lag said...

Just one way for this level, play other boards, take many bonus, and complete this one whit hamers... 2 hand and 4 hammers for me to complete this ridiculous level... And 1269 is more boring. :(
(sorry for my bad english)

Ridiculously difficult level. No fun. All frustration. Time to delete Candy Crush.

I like the hard levels where you need to think, but the first 15-20 moves in this level are all about luck. Everybody who has come this far knows how to play the game. I think this level will be less complicated when it is available on mobile devices and not through fb.
But, (like I said, I like hard levels), this one at this stage is nearly impossible. You really need at least 10 more moves. I think I would have finished it having 10 more moves, may be 12.
For now, I quit playing until it is available on a mobile device. I have limits, when I can't finish a level in 50 attempts, I quit playing it for a while. Normaly they fix it and make it less hard. So far, this always worked for me-:)

Keep up the good work, and keep posting, I hope to learn more and more.

Good luck from the Netherlands.

As the Netherlands said, after 50 attempts it's best to give it up until it is available on a mobile device or "nerfed". We all know how to go back to certain levels to collect more boosters but there is no point in wasting them on this level.

I will wait it out and in the meantime keep playing other levels.

Anonymous said...

Well, 'The Netherlands' had a lucky board, and I finished the level having one more move to go. I was about to use all the '1' lolly hammers I had left, but it wasn't neccessary. This indeed is a 'no fun' level and really one of the hardest ones after 1000. But, the level after this one -1269- also seems to be a bad one... I had 5 lives to play it, but the bombs count down very fast. Ons time I finished it allmost, so I guess it must be possible in 20-30 attempts.

On we go!

Keep on smiling-:)

Good luck from the Netherlands!

Hard Level??? They are going to need to modify this one - I can't even come close enough to even consider using a booster. I've always found it ridiculous that King won't allow you to use certain boosters on certain levels. A coconut wheel would sure come in handy here, but they won't let you use them. I also hate how you can have all kinds of great moves and combos and think you might stand a chance at clearing the level, then all of the sudden there are like no good moves left on the board. Totally rigged. I'll wait for my lucky board.

10 days and over 500 tries in this level, and never came close once. I'm done with Candy Crush.

Kickan said...

When I saw that new levels had opened up I actually dreaded going on. I have played this level about 50 times and never even come close to completing it. Now I have decided to stop playing altogether and feel a great sense of relief.
I want to thank this blog for giving support and opportunities for players to share strategies.

I think King concluded they gave to many 'presents'in Candy Crush. Collecting candies for the jar is less available and for me it is no longer possible to go back to former games to collect candies for 'prices'. More often the games are impossible and King has to modify them. I'm curious for how long the game will continuing to exist because I read more and more comments of disgust...

McT said...

Here we go again! We have all been there before where we say "I quit...this is impossible!" Well, I just played with a "ton" of combos, but to no avail...maybe this one is impossible...life goes on....or it should, anyway.

Anonymous said...

Tintin here. I agree with all comments. Used tons of lives. Got close-ish a couple of times, but still would need 10 to 20 more moves. Will leave for a while and see if they change it a bit and make it easier. Seems impossible at the moment. Like one of the other posts here, I cannot go back and collect more sugar drops, don't know why..just not available.

Anonymous said...

This level is ridiculous!! Help!!

Anonymous said...

I've played this level so many times and not even came close. I just had one attempt where I was very close so ashamed to say I purchased hammers and more moves. But if levels are going to keep being designed in that you have to keep purchasing, then its time to quit.

Anonymous said...

Ridiculous waste of time on an impossible level. Please fix this.

Kickan said...

I just tested to see if the sugar drops were still working and on my PC they are. They no longer pop up and down, but they are still there. These are the levels where I have been successful in earning lots of extra bonuses...
1073, 1003, 945, 932, 918, 917, 906,, 666 and 654.
I used these levels and earned 180 sugar points twice daily for a while. Then it began feeling like work and not play and I stopped.

billyrabbit said...

Been stuck here for over a week without getting even close. Agree with the other comments, it's not fun anymore.

Anonymous said...

I've also been trying for over a week. They either need to add more moves, or make the upper left area larger. Otherwise, this level is simply a waste of time.

Anonymous said...

I never bought anything from them & the day I think I should is the day I delete the game. This level is impossible! Please, any of you that are buying their bonuses are doing exactly what they want you to do. I think once they make the money they want to make off selling bonuses is when they change things & make it easier. It's a GAME & to me a game always meant something you have fun doing. When you know there is no way to win this level, how could that be fun.

Amo said...

This seems to be another impossible level where there are numerous players threatening to quit the game. I wonder how much of the threats is true? Anyway, I totally agree with what some of the earlier players had said that it is best to pause after 50 moves and work on getting more free boasters from the sugar drops. I always take this as a time to relax and enjoy getting some freebies!

OMG! Someone wake me up when this nightmare is over!

Just completed this with 7 moves left, no boosters just a lucky board, concentrated as usual going down, then had 3-4 wrapped combos in a row, towards the end the cascades and bombs did the rest, left with i jelly which was nicely set up for a easy finish.

been on it for a week, about 50 attempts, actually really enjoyed this one, i would recommend the tips at the top and use the candys to maximise the combos and specials.

happy happy happy happy :) :) :)

Doug said...

What a waste of time on this Level ,Coconut wheel may help but not able to use it ,unless you have about 25 hammers and the same switch moves this level is not possible in my world

Karen said...

Been on this level 4 days and play 15-20 times a day. Should be easier when level is available on phone/ipad.

Anonymous said...

I refuse to use any of my saved free boosters on this level until they make changes. Would rather walk away with all of the boosters and quit the game.

Anonymous said...

Two weeks on this level and I have never came close. The only reason I kept my facebook account was because I was wanting to keep my Candy Crush progress. Well thanks Candy Crush I have now closed my facebook account and this level was a great help in finally losing my addiction to Candy Crush. Now I can get on with doing other things.

McT said...

I just noticed that the mobile version of this level has arrived....and I thought that maybe, MAYBE, it might be easier....WRONG! It is just as hard, if not harder. The end result here is that you need a GREAT board and then get very, very, LUCKY. Hopefully, this will occur sooner rather than later....I am getting as frustrated as most of you with no end in sight, for the moment...Good Luck to all!

Anonymous said...

And how many times did we say "I'm done with CC"? Lol. Admit we are addicted. There just isn't other games out there that is as fun. I tried.

Anonymous said...

I came to this level at the very fortunate time now that the King is giving away a chocoball. So I used my own chocoball from the free spin one then crossed them together at the beginning. After that making combos were easy and many. I don't know if I could beat it without the Halloween gift chocoball but I did beat it on my second try. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Got this on my third try. Took the advice of person above. I kept hearing about the Hallowe'en free chocolate bomb with every game. I play on two Android tablets and I wasn't getting any free chocolate bombs on them so checked my Android cell phone which had them. I have only played on my phone twice to get some sugar drop boosters just in case. So glad I did. Only took one try on my phone. Used one of my choc bomb boosters and reset until it was next to the one given on level. Swiped them which got things started. Ended up getting three stripe/wrap combos and then towards end got two more choc bombs and managed to drop one down beside the other. Had some trouble keeping the chocolate away. Used a lollipop hammer on last jelly on my last move.
Thank-you to the person who posted above. Hope this helps someone else. I think the free chocolate bombs are only lasting about another 4 hours.

anonymous37 said...

A big thank you to Anonymous above (Oct. 28 at 7:45). I also used a choco ball from the free spin/sugar drops. I reset the board till they were next to each other at the beginning and made the combo. Even so, I still had to use a lolli to be able to make a choco ball along the way to finish before I ran out of moves. I tried to play with just the one Halloween gift choco ball and couldn't get anywhere near finishing.

Anonymous said...

Hi have to agree this level is ridiculous. Have used loads of boosters and still get nowhere also think that king just want you to spend money.Completed level 1180 before they simplified it but finding this level impossible need another 30 lives to complete it.Also have to wait for lucky board

No Hallowe'en chocolate ball on either my ipad or phone. Haven't tried this level yet but I am dreading it after reading the comments here. How did everyone get the new levels before today????

I've been stuck on this level for three weeks with no end in sight. It's ridiculous to make a level this difficult. This might be the level that makes me quit playing Candy Crush.

Unbelievable this level!!
I have played this a hundred times on iPad and on Android but I never came close to win this level.
Need 20 moves extra.....
And where are the free chocolate balls for me ?? 😀😀

Anonymous said...

I've played this level a ridiculous amount of times yesterday and today and of course I still have yet to beat it. But what is this about a free choco ball. I have not even heard of it until reading these posts.

McT said...

Enough is enough....I thought "games" were supposed to be fun. A complete waste of my time. I have now used my arsenal of "weapons" and can't even get close. So, why don't I quit? Because I'm like the rest of you. I have weaned off, however, and will not play as often to continue wasting my time and effort.

anonymous said...

This level has come out on the iPad and it's a bit easier - I did it 2nd time after no luck on the PC version after many many tries. The iPad gives you a colour bomb so you can stop the chocolate spreading along the bottom horizontal by selecting a colour near the chocolate maker. I also used colour bomb, fish and striped/wrapped candy boosters. The fish respawns much more often than on the PC and this helped clear the walls.

Anonymous said...

Very strange....I'm also playing on an iPad and the iPad gives me no colour bomb!!
For me, this is the limit, I quit. This level is really impossible with all the useless moves in the beginning and all the chocolate.
I have only 4 hammers and at the end of each game I need 20-25 hammers!
Good luck to all of you!

Anonymous said...

Completed in Android. Threw in all 3 boosters available. Ensured that choco ball is next to stripe candy. Lots of fish also helped. Did it with 17 moves to spare. Good luck. Let's see what's in store on 1269.

Many thanks for your tip Anonymous (29 October 2015 at 07.49). After playing a hundred times, I completed on iPad the first time after reading your tip!!

No colour bomb on my iPad either! Terrible level. Not even close!

Anonymous said...

Just completed with the three boosters available on my last move. Good luck!

Leigh Ann said...

I've tried with fish/choco bomb/striped/wrapped twice and it was a waste both times. The fish was on the bottom row, the chocolate bomb was in the right hand column and the wrapped and striped were both in the square at the top but no where near each other.

Van5 said...

Well, THAT cost me 24 of my gold bars (for 10 extra moves) and 4 hand switches! Thank Heaven for the sugar drops and the wheel or I would be stuck here forever! Good luck everyone! So GLAD to be moving on!

Playing on the IPad and no chocolate ball here either.boring lavel.

Anonymous said...

Fuck you. Greedy ass fuckers.

Anonymous said...

Wow, glad I'm not alone in this! Have been playing for over a week and while I've come somewhat close, I still think I would need at least 10-12 moves to finish. Thought when it became available on mobile, it would be easier.. especially because I have a lot of saved boosters.. but no easier at all. Even with getting two chocolate balls next to each other, no difference. While it is sort of 'fun' as you do get loads of opportunities with stripe/stripe and stripe/wrap and even chocolate balls..you still come to the end with needing at least 10-12 moves. I'm waiting to get 'extra' moves from friends which hasn't happened yet, I did have the free chocolate ball promo but not on this level. The last few episodes have been way more challenging.. I was always ahead of when it would appear on mobile devices as I was solely playing on computer, no longer. Unlike others who say they will never spend a penny, I don't mind once in awhile if I have been on a level for a long time. Seems like it wouldn't help on this one.

Crap level. Used all 3 boosters ( no luck using before). 2 hand switches, 5 extra moves DONE

Jen said...

CANNOT believe it. Done this one hundreds of times on PC ipad phone. Nothing worked. Read the comments here and did it first time!! Sorry, no explanation, just read a few of the tips. Had no chocs either. Phew! Hardest one yet for me. Good luck all

didueverdoubtme said...

The level from hell!! 2 days to get this but finally and had to use my last 3 lollipops when I got the only chance..closest I had since wasting boosters to be one short first day....had to collect some..but anyway done....my hand is aching! ! My only tip is to try and work at the right side as much as possible being its the hardest to break..I tried it this way and eventually it worked. I found i was getting close but that right wall always defeated me by a few. Good luck don't give up... am sure it will be simplified..we seem to be the guinea pigs all the time!!

Nochance said...

This is very true,at first you're board seems to be energetic the when you're down to last 10 moves it becomes dead,i used all available options but they never appear afterwards

Anonymous said...

Ridiculously difficult. I have matched 2 chocolate balls and at least 8 combos and haven't even come close. I need 10 or more moves to complete. Argh!!

Anonymous said...

Finally beat it by using all 3 boosters & buying extra moves. Also got lucky with wrapped/striped falling in strategic places. Unfair level where you have to buy to get passed the level. Got the next one on the first try. NC

I didn't get any chocolate ball either!! Wish I had😔 I tried combining in sprinkle with a wrap/ stripe and restring till sprinkle and stripe were next to each other. Usually does the trick but enough of same color as stripe candies so didn't do enough good. Even with 5 extra moves couldn't do it!! Very frustrating- back to collecting boosters!😂

Well I have now grown used to the fact that this is my last candy crush level. I will continue to play from time to time but I just don't have the enthusiasm anymore. i can't even come close. I'm happy it wasn't a bomb level that beat me! I have spent some $$ on this game and that's ok because ai had a lot of fun. I won't spend anymore but this one got me and that's ok.

Anonymous said...

After proclaiming level impossible above beat it after a few mores tries despite no upfront boosters. Did use boosters I won to finish a lucky board: five moves, one switch, five hammers.

RM said...

I thought it was impossible or at the least going to take the life out of me after reading all the posts here. Tried a couple of times on the PC and then switched to iPhone. LOL - finished on the 2nd try. 3 choc bombs + 3 stripes did the job. I think was my lucky day.

Anonymous said...

King, all crushers are precious, stop the killing.

Anonymous said...

An awful level, to be sure, but the key to clearing DOES lie in the boosters - the ones in-game. Don't bother with a level you can't make some room on before dropping under 40 moves (just restart). After that, the hand/swap is the key. You might need a few and a couple lollipop hammers, too, but once I remembered "THE HAND", I finished using 1 hand and 4 hammers.

Anonymous said...

Hallelujah! I thought I was never going to pass this level. Finally made it using a couple of specials and buying some gold bars. A ridiculously difficult level.

Anonymous said...

What an awfully frustrating level. I need at least 5 additional moves to pass this one, but I refuse to give King any of my money.

Anonymous said...

I'm finding the sugar drop quest to be more enjoyable anyway. The games are more fun, less stressful, and the challenge is in seeing how many sugar drops I can get. And, if I end up on a despicable chocolate game or one with a zillion bombs, I can opt out and go to a more enjoyable game.I won't delete cc as so many others have done and are doing but the games at this level have lost their appeal to me. Keep on keeping on those of you who choose to forge on ahead. Good luck. The quest had to end for me at some point.

Passed this after 4 days! Played on iPad with no boosters.....made a lot of chocolate balls and used them with striped candies destroying a lot of jelly. Used 1 hammer on second last move to guarantee that I would clear the jelly! Didn't really mind this level but it did seem impossible at times....guess this round was my lucky board but it's only that if you watch for combinations that you use to your advantage.

Anonymous said...

This is the first time EVER since starting to play candy crush that I don't want to play anymore. Other games have been challenging and frustrating but I've had to force myself to play this one. After hearing that the next is riddled with bombs, I have no desire to even move on past this one. So I have to break up with you Candy. It was never meant to be a permanent relationship and I now need to be free to pursue other, more rewarding ones. It was fun while it lasted but you've changed. I will always remember you fondly. Good bye Candy, good bye.

Annonymous said...

I am the commenter above you about no one passing without boosters. I've thrown several whole sets at it to no avail. Had 2 choco balls together, ball and stripe together. If I pass thos level I will probably pass out from shock.

Thank you to an earlier poster. I used one of each booster available (fish, chi sprinkle, combo) at the start of the game and finished with moves to spare. Wish I didit from the start vs using just one booster each try.

Joan Hazlewood said...

I have been stuck on this level now for about 2 weeks. My friend who is normally about an entire level behind me passed it in a couple of days. Don't know how. I'm beginning to think King are doing deliberately. Playing friends against so another to try and entice you to buy boosters. No chance of that happening but a serious chance of me deleting CC. No fun playing a level for 2 weeks and getting nowhere near. ANOTHER BORING LEVEL KING. NEWS FLASH, LEVELS THIS DIFFICULT ARE NOT FUN.

Anonymous said...

After days of trying I got through. I thought all along it was just going to take tons of combos and I finally got them. Still took to hammers to finish it off but I don't care.

Anonymous said...

Well I've tried everything I can think of! One of each booster to start - that was a complete waste! Used two hand swaps to get two chocolate balls together twice - that helped, but not enough! Never heard of the choco balls its really not fair that some should get these and not others. Live someone said above I've started replaying the booster levels which is far less stressful and more fun and perhaps one day King will come to their senses and stop trying to get rid of us all. Note to King - I never have and never will spend money to get through a level so you may as well stop trying to make me!!

Isn't the definition of insanity repeatedly doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results? I have officially gone insane. So over this ridiculous level!

Anonymous said...

At last I crossed this level today. Here is what I did. First I gathered around 8 hammers and 8 switches. Then I started the game with a chocolate bomb and a fish and a wrapper+stripe. Played the level a couple of times till I reached a point where I had around 15 jellies. Then using my hammers and switches I cleared the 15 jellies. At first they were not jellies but those layers covering the jellies. So first I use the hammers to get to the jellies and then use the switch to break the jellies. Overall u need to use lots of boosters and u need to use them when u reach a part wher in u have the least jellies to break.

DONE, BYE, THEY TOOK THE FUN OUT SO I QUIT AFTER USING ALL BOOSTERS. USE TO BE FUN, OH WELL I MADE IT THIS FAR. FINDING A NEW GAME, WON'T BE ONE BY KING! GOOD LUCK YA'LL!

I so agree with the insanity comment😂I stopped playing this level after reading all of above. It took me two days to get a decent stockpile of hand switches and lollipops and then I reset my board till I had one or two good moves in that small space. On the third try I started to get sprinkles while I was able to combine with a stripe using a hand switch a couple of times . Got some other combos and knew I could finish. Just needed two lollipops at end( just to be sure!! ) and I am done with this hateful level!!, but wondering why I bothered😳Game used to be fun - now it's a chore!

Thanks for all the tips but in the end it was a lucky board and enough boosters

BORING beyond belief. Been at it for a week and can't even come close. I get to about 15 moves left and "bag it" knowing I'll never clear the board with all the jellies to get through. Awful level, King!!!

Jennifer said...

I was quite enjoying this level, but now the frustration is wearing on me. I've seen about four lucky boards and I STILL can't beat it. The lucky boards just give me stripe and wrap combinations, and at the end, half of the board still is untouched. As someone else said, you really need a minimum of an extra ten moves, and even then, it would still be difficult. One day I know King will take pity on me and grant me permission to pass.

Played once then came here to check comments and thought I'd be on this level for ages. Went back to have my second try and completed with two stars and only needed to use one lollipop. What the hell? Either CC has nerfed it or I got really lucky. Just kept getting lots of combos most created by the game. Got one sprinkle ball but never got a chance to mix with anything as exploded in all the action. I did use quite a few stripe/wrap combos which did a lot of damage. Good luck. Onto 1269, not looking forward to that.

Stopped playing for just a few days, then came back to see if they fixed this level yet. Nope. Got ANOTHER lucky board, with two chocolate sprinkles mixed with stripes, and some stripe / wrap combos and still cannot even get close to beating this board. Guess I'll stop playing for a few more days and hope they fix it in the meantime.

The person that created this level needs to be FIRED!!! Horrible level!

Anonymous said...

It would appear that this level has just been made easier. I still haven't completed it yet, but there is a notable increase in the amount of special candies and combos being automatically created.

To me, this would suggest two things:

1) King have actually listened to the complaints and decided to take action.

2) This level was deliberately made impossible, and could have originally been made simpler.

The whole game is rigged, and there are levels that are purposefully designed not to let players pass.

Apologize for the profanity, but this level sucks big time

Anonymous said...

Snore... Geez, this level is BORING. Today when I was playing I had to laugh when I found myself disappointed that I still had 2 lives left. You know it's an addiction when you feel like you HAVE to play it even though you really don't want to. Well, I'm definitely not playing with much enthusiasm anymore. King must have their biggest jerks "designing" these latest levels.

Anonymous said...

I agree. I find this level to be an insult to those of us that have gotten this far. This level has nothing to do with skill. It's either King wants more money or they want players to quit. What is it King?

Jennifer said...

This was probably the most difficult level I came across in my entire CC 'career'. If King did make it slightly easier by giving you more combos, like someone previously said, it didn't make a difference to me. This level needs about ten more moves and to make the chocolate so it doesn't come back once you clear it. Every time it popped up "Hard Level" I felt like they were being generous. "Impossible level" seems more likely.

All that aside, I had to use a fish booster and a chocolate bomb booster to start the game. Then I had to use four hand switches while playing the game. I used two hand switches to get two chocolate bombs next to each other - twice, which helped. The fish also helped, and the last two hand switches I used were to get a striped and a wrapped moved next to each other.

Either prepare to be on this level indefinitely (until they fix it), or prepare to use a ton of boosters (thankfully I have saved mine for many, many months, so I had a lot available). Good riddance to this awful, awful level.

Anonymous said...

I finally passed this level last night. No boosters or extra moves. I realized I had to work the right side of the board more than the bottom. This helped clear the jelly faster. I got pretty lucky with a couple of color bomb and stripe combos at the end. Striped and wrapped combos are good too. Just keep trying!

Marc Shapiro said...

Jeez. Brutal. 3 weeks on this level. I am falling (further) behind!

Done ... at last ... two jellies left with two lollipops - I didn't even try get them with moves. And yes, as per an earlier comment, keep working away at the right hand side instead of the bottom ...

FINALLY passed this crappy level. Don't even remember how many days I was stuck. I did change my "strategy" (if you can call it that) today. I had been focusing only on making specials and then making them a combo. Obviously was not working. So then I instead started to focus only on clearing the blockers to make the playing surface larger. This meant often ignoring opportunities to make specials and combos. Seems painful, but when I did that I found that I was able to make a bigger playing surface. Whichever move option cleared the most blockers (the last grey ones) that is the one I moved. Once you get a big area to play then you can start making those combos, and you'll get cascades which can be helpful too. Passed with no helpers and 6 moves to spare.

Next level is crappy too. It has move bombs, which suck. I don't think it will be quite as hard though.

King you have ruined the game for me. Stuck on this level for god knows how many days and still nowhere near completing it. It's time to say bye to kings games.

Finally passed this one after nearly a hundred tries. Nothing special, 3-4 striped-wrapped and 2-3 striped-sprinkle, and excellent chain reactions, so, luck. 5 moves to get the last one, and 3 moves left.

Hate hate hate this level!! Obviously it's not impossible so I will say nearly impossible and no fun at all!!!! I may finally be saying bye bye CC

They nerves it. Just won it on my iPad because they changed the board there. It has 4 wraps in the middle of the right bottom concrete. These really help. It makes the game almost enjoyable after beating my head against the wall playing on the PC. Came close several times before I finally won. I also used a fish booster and it gave me a bunch of them. It seemed like the special candies were easier to get too. Maybe they are actually listening to us. Good luck. Don't give up.

Should read "nerfed it" in the above comment. Definitely easier.

Been playing this level for over a week on the computer. Was at the doctors today and opened it on my iPhone. The screen is very different on the iPhone. Chocolate maker is in a different location and there are wrapped candies all through the meringue. Finally finished this hellish level. Again, play this level on your iphone (don't know if android is the same) and it is much, much easier.

Weird...on Android there are wraps in the middle of the board which help (somewhat) but no wraps on PC version. Still a very hard and boring level.

Anonymous said...

Finished it on Android after 5 tries. The wraps in the middle help a lot, especially if you can set off that chain reaction before the chocolate starts spreading.

DrunkenPickles said...

FYI, this level is different and much easier on my Android tablet. It's the same level but there are 4 color bombs added to the board (and the board is flipped)

Anonymous said...

Play this on my PC, only option, so have no color bombs or wraps. Been playing for a week and used extra moves and 2 hammers to pass. One of the hardest I have played. Don't use boosters unless the level is next to impossible and on it for a week without getting close. ALH

Ric Nos said...

80-90 moves wouldn't be enough. King just wants your money, and I refuse to give it to them. Take away the chocolate generator and it would still be a pain in the ass. 50+ games and I haven't even come close.

Who ever coded this level needs to be tied to a tree and beat with a stick.

Finally got this horrible level. It's ail in a lucky board and playing it right when it comes along. I had most of the board cleared. Used free gold bats to buy 5 extra moves and used a free hand switch to put a stripe beside a bomb. Finished with 2 moves left from the extra 5.

dirty vegas said...

I can't watch the video ,it keeps saying an error has occurred ,I've been stuck for a few days now and come here to read the helpful tips and watch the video but so far can't get access to the video . I always find the video useful .Anyway this is indeed a hard level waiting for a lucky board and hopefully a chance to see how to pass this level ...

dirty vegas said...

I've managed to watch the video a few times now and it looks pretty straightforward when you get a board like the one in the video :) I've been playing 3/4 days now and only had a decent board a handful of times .I think it's a good level despite being so hard ,just wish it was easier to make combos earlier ,I try and make every move count but feel I'll be here yet again for an eternity .

Rose D. said...

What a horrid level. It's seems that CC has gone down the dumps.. Used to enjoy playing, but now all we get are hard, boring, repetitive, and impossible to complete levels. Stuck on this level for a week and it looks like many more... King you need to fire the person responsible for these types of levels. We do not enjoy playing anymore. Where are all the fun levels we used to play? Bring back the FUN!!!

Anon lafy said...

Finally did it after innumerable tries and wasted boosters. I got to 2 moves left with the chance of finishing off with lollipops - I used 4 I think, with two hand switches to make stripe/sprinkle combos earlier. Thank goodness - it was getting tedious. My only helpful tip is to look for matches at the start which kill some of the right hand cream blockers, not just vertical ones. I reset until I had that.

Anonymous said...

This levels sucks and it's impossible to beat, even with boosters, gold bars helping you give extra moves. Time to rejig it and make it easier KING, thanks. I'm so close to quitting candy crush and that coming from me is priceless since I'm a total candy crush addict. Please make this level easier!!!!!

dirty vegas said...

I'm coming up to a week on this level and I've had a few good boards since I last posted just not enough moves to clear the board ,it's frustrating ,it's getting tedious ,I miss the fun and enjoyment . I find myself being stuck for weeks at a time on the same level and it gets me wondering how I've managed to get to this current level

Anonymous said...

Tedious. Ugh.

TonyC said...

The layout for this level has completely changed for me this morning and looks a lot more doable. The chocolate generator has moved from bottom right corner to bottom left, also, 5 exploding candies have beem added from from bottom right corner moving diagonally towards the top left corner. I was just about to give up and delete

jackydilley said...

The board changed today, chocolate spawned on the right instead of the left but the wrapped candies have disappeared. Not sure if this is going to be easier.

Anonymous said...

Oh my gosh! The board played completely differently today! I didn't want to take a chance on getting stuck again, so I did use a hand and a hammer at the end to ensure that I could get out of this nightmare, but I'm guessing it will be a lot easier to finish now. Yay!!! Thank you King!

Anonymous said...

After three weeks at this level it changed today while I was playing. Good thing, I have finally passed the level and have gone on to the next. I was starting to think about quitting.

It was not me but the Kings which had to mend it ways. I was on this level for almost last 20 days playing 15-20 games everyday and was nowhere seemed to be finishing the game. Today when I opened the game, the structure of the board had been changed. The chocolate pump was on the left corner instead of right corner. This made me complete the game in first attempt without any Hassel's. Hope the similar board appears on your mobile too who are stuck on this level for long.

Cracked it on the second try, using a hand switcher. I'm on my way to the next horror...

Newme07 said...

Agreed!!!

Quitting for awhile. I will only let King make a fool out of me for so long...

Don Gurian said...

I do not know why everyone hates this board. There are plenty of moves and I could have beaten it on the first try if I wanted to use one hammer at the end. I think it is totally beatable and is fun to play, unlike so many others. Just my two cents.

Bling59 said...

I'm a little reluctant to say this but I managed it first time without boosters. However I did notice that on my game the chocolate fountain is on the left side not on the right as in the video. This may have been an advantage by not allowing the chocolate to grow uncontrollably.

Bill. said...

Took a lot of attempts. Need to set off the wrapped candies before the chocolate spreads then keep looking for combinations with wrapped candy very useful.

Agree last couple episodes are dumb not fun no skill who wants play a game waiting for lucky board moved on in my mind inwon goet away from a boring game waiting for lucky boards to predictable anymore. Have fun guys lot of better games why I think they sold it lot of quitters!/borring!

Seems impossible.....ugh

A tip on getting candy in the cookie jar each game. When you come to a game that goes not give you candies(little girl is sad) then exit candy crush. Turn off your iPad,turn back on and go into candy crush (the little girl is smiling) and you can get candies for the jar.

Anonymous said...

Unbelievable! I read all hints and comments before playing and saw that nothing was going to help but maybe a lucky board. So I played one game and came close with just making combos. Second game I got down to two moves and two hits away. So I purchased 5 extra moves and beat the game with 2 moves to spare. I'm still in shock at how easy this one was for me.

GC said...

After two days again I finally got through. I've used boosters before and it didn't make any difference as your forced to use them before the board even opens up properly. I've tried on android and iPad and still nothing. Well my lucky board appeared just now. I had two sparkles together on move 38. I had good combo's in between that and move 11 of which I took a chance and used my handswitch to put a wrapper with another sparkle that appeared. Luckily there were quite a few candies of the same colour. I was left with one jelly so I used a hammer to clear it. This is one tough and frustrating level. Now onto the next hard level.

Good luck everyone.

One would need a stick of dynamite to shift those meringues. So bored playing this level and not even getting close.

Anonymous said...

Why in the world isn't this a "hard" level? This is the hardest "not hard" level there is in CC. The only hope is to use the fish booster. I believe I got 6 of them to clear 18 jelly!

Anonymous said...

At least there are no bombs, conveyor belts and the like.
This level is incredibly hard, but at least one feels that eventually, with skill and luck, it will be, at some point

I passed on the first attempt with judicious use of two hammahs. The first board looked like a sure loser, so I reset once. I was able to make stripes right from the start. I just kept making specials, even if they were away from the action, and then making combos. As happened to one of the early posters, the board was very dynamic at first then ran out of gas. Nothing but three combos and no ripple. There were three two-layer jellies left. One was right above the blender, with no icing. I hammahed the first layer. That left me with a combo that took out the last layer. I was very surprised the chocolate didn't spread into that cell between moves. Overall the chocolate was very passive and seemed content to spread across the bottom row. Another jelly was in the top rightt corner under a layer of icing. The third was to its left with two layers of icing. I hammahed the single layer icing to get better candy flow around the remaining icing. Several more moves and I was done.
A general thought. If you are waiting for a lucky board, then you've probably already missed it. My experience, especially on hard levels, is that the first attempt is often a lucky board. If you're busy trying to understand the level or otherwise waste the opportunity, it may be a long wait for another lucky board. This explains why some pass on the first attempt and others struggle for days or weeks. Unless you're confident you know the best approach right from the start, check the blog before your first attempt.

Got this 2nd try. First try used and lost fish came within 17 jellies left.
2nd Try used full compliment of boosters. Fish combined with like colors, color bomb with stripe then wrap did its thing. the entire right column and lower jellies cleared. From thereon it was standard cleanup. Make a lot of easy combos and worked horizontal stripes upper and lower on the board. Had 4 jellies in the upper right corner and 5 moves left at the end. Combined 3 blue candies and had 2 left and fish came to finish off.
Once the left is opened up it is just standard CC play with the ability to make a lot of combos. Don't feed into all the negative and defeatist posts as it will hinder the fun of the game. Onward.
