Candy Crush Saga Level 1525

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1525 Candy Crush Saga without boosters.
This is a timed level but the starting time of 75 seconds is quite generous.
You will need to collect the first couple of keys which will open up the board, then forget about the locked ones, they will be collected as you play.
If you have trouble with timed levels (as I do) read our page on passing timed levels, it really helps.
Once you have space to work you should be able to make colour bombs, use these to get the rest of the keys, or if you can get one next to a wrapped candy that is the best combo for scoring points, whatever colour it is.
You need to get extra time candies falling and cascades will give you more. If you just make matches of 3 you won't get enough extra time candies to get the 75,000 points you need.
Colour bombs with wraps are by far the best combo, or a double wrap combo may work too. 
Colour bomb/stripe combos might set off a cascade and give you more extra time candies, but it won't give many points.
Our page on Scoring more points may also be useful.

  1. This level is impossible. I have never got more than 40,000 even with some good colour bomb and stripe and wrapped combos. Just waiting for that 'lucky' board again, I guess. Ridiculous......................

  3. I didn't like this one at all, but got it on about the 15th try. Those first 14 tries were pure misery, though.

  4. Just started playing this one yesterday. So far, I got 72,000 points twice--close, but not close enough. Will have to wait for that lucky board.

  5. Wow, this is really frustrating!!!!!!

  6. Day 2~~45 tries so far and my best score has been 47000. I have gotten all of the Keys many times, have 5 or 6 colored Bombs and lots of Extra Time candies but never even close. HATE these timed Levels.....I would Love it if after a predetermined amount of tries to pass a Level that the creators would let you move on to the next Level. I have read all of your tips and try to implement them without success. I am the 1st to admit that I suck at times Levels......

  7. I think that this is the most idiotic level so far.
    Not even come close.

  9. Got it on my 93rd try. Chose Color Bomb and Strip/Wrap combo Boosters at the start of the game and it worked. SO Happy to be moving on.

    1. Ive made two stripe wrap combos and still nowhere close..guess I will get it eventually

    2. The biggest point combo is wrap and color bomb.

  10. I am really struggling with this level. Wish it was available on my iPhone as I'm finding it much more difficult on the laptop. Big sigh!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I too was getting nowhere after about 200 tries. Ten I started using a wrapped / striped candy bonus and it started releasing a lot more +5 second candies. It only took me about 4 or 5 goes after that to beat it easily. Give it a try.

  12. I repeat the previous comment!
    Having tried repeatedly for days and not even getting close, I started the level with a striped wrapped bonus and it seemed to create much more combos and +5 candies throughout the game. I even got 2 stars!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am useless at timed levels but surprised myself when I managed to get through this one pretty fast. I found that using the coloured bombs with any plain candy generated more bombs and +5 candies. I only achieved 1 star but so relieved to get through as I thought I would be stuck for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  14. There are some bugs on this level which prevent special candies being formed. It's only happened a few times, but it's very annoying!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I guess I'll wait until this is available for mobile and try it on my iPad. I can't even count how many times it had to shuffle.

    1. Sucks on mobile bad!

  16. You cannot clear this without the help of the +5 candies. Sometimes they seem to fall, other times they are non-existent. Ridiculous level. Is there a trick to getting the time candies to fall???

    ReplyDelete
  17. I just posted the last comment and wanted to add how annoying it is how much time is wasted waiting for cascades to finish falling before you can make your next move. Impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  18. In total agreement with those who hate timed levels. Not only is there lag time between hitting the mouse to make the move but reshuffling (which happened a LOT for me with this game) further deducts precious seconds. There are many players who may have finger dexterity issues or vision impairments that preclude them from being able to succeed at timed levels. King should provide a way out of at least one level, no matter what the reason. Maybe as a free booster or accumulated gold bars to "buy" to pass a level. This was ONLY do-able with a lucky board that provided many more +5 candies and ability to match wraps and stripes than all my previous attempts. I actually passed with 3 stars and that's ONLY due to the lucky board. I wasted none of my own boosters but was considering the extra time one, just in case.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Agree with everyone else 3 days over 100 goes no where near closest I got was about 50,000. Agree with the rest hate timed levels. Might be the one that finally makes me quit not fun

    ReplyDelete
  20. the most annoying part is when the stupid candy fall so slow but the time is still counting like WTF ?

    ReplyDelete
  21. And just to think there are about 6 or 7 timed levels in this episode. im gonna take a hiatus i believe

    ReplyDelete
  22. this game is not fair i waste most of my time waiting for the candy to drop and cant do anything, not even closed stupid level ever. is time to quit candy

    ReplyDelete
  23. good bye candy crush!! used to be fun but lately its pathetic !!

  24. Stripe/ wrap combo did the trick! Thanks for tip

  25. Played and lost maybe eight times so far and did no better in the last four, using both boosters. I'm with the posters above who alluded to time counting down while candies fall. There's nothing like seeing specials you can't use because of that time loss. It's unfair, and the clock shpuld be suspended during shuffles and falling candy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have had choc sprinkle/wrap and choc/stripe and two stripe/wrap combos in the same try along with two single wraps and still can't get over 48,000 points.

  27. YAHOO! Finally just beat it! Played over and over, then started using both boosters and got to 59,000 once. Gave in and paid 9 gold bars for extra time. Still didn't win. Then left my Android tablet and played on my Note 4 with the stylus and it was easier swiping than with my finger. Finally, no boosters but got lots of +5 candies and finished with 108,000 points. Good luck everyone.

  28. Speckled ball and stripe wrap combo did the trick after a few tries. So glad to finish that level.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Once got to 70,000 pts but refused to buy gold bars to complete it. Another 10 more tries with the last one a lucky board, lots of +5 candies and a couple of sprinkles, 81,820 pts, one star, no booster but I am through! Noting I had enough points I in fact did not play the last remaining few seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Practically impossible to come close on the phone app version, but almost ridiculously easy on the PC version. I sat back and watched it happen, with only a few clicks of the mouse. It's weird how different the phone app version and PC version can be on some levels. I'm happy, though, because I abhor the timed levels almost as much as those pesky time bombs!

  31. I just used a sprinkle. Played three times and it was done (used a sprinkle each time). LA

    ReplyDelete
  32. I got lucky on this level. When the time ran out I had about 40000 points but there were continuing cascades and then a color bomb appeared and exploded giving me the required points.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Finally got it after about 40 tries. The colour bombs came and so did the wraps. And the +5 candies. Think I got a lucky board! Managed 98K and one star, amd I'm very happy to be through. I hate timed levels! Good luck everyone!

  34. I used the advice of chocolate bomb & striped wrapped boosters to start.
    3 tries and finally I passed.
    I hate timed lwvels but this one just is the worst.
    Waiting to make moves while time is still counting is unfair and drives people to quit.
    What is King thinking lately?
    The last 30 levels have just been nasty and un strategic...
    Where is the daily nooster wheel?
    Gone?

  36. This is ridiculous and beyond boring. As others I haven't gotten more than 47000. The last set of levels were actually fun but now we r back to this stupidity. At least I am stocking up on boosters instead of buying them since I can only play something that boring so long before I go back to get boosters.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I got through this level on my 4th go. But I did use 1 extra time bonus total score 89260

    ReplyDelete
  38. Not a fan of timed levels! No fun

    ReplyDelete
  39. I used plenty of 5 second candies and used boosters, but to no avail. I am hoping posting will help me move on from this nasty level.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is the limit......used all my boosters and came nowhere.
    For me, this level is impossible so this is the end of CC for me.
    Thanks King, finally back to real life....

    ReplyDelete
  41. Levels are set up so that it is almost impossible to pass without boosters.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Lucky third attempt. Chocolate bombs seemed to form by themselves. Exploded them straight away.

    ReplyDelete
  43. As though timed levels aren't difficult enough, the required points on this one is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Losing patience on this frustrating impossible level.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you Anonymous 24 Feb - YAHOO. The stylus made all the difference. Passed on the second go using it. I'd been working my way through those hard earned boosters and getting more and more frustrated. JG

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wish I had some advice to offer, but I'm not getting anywhere. Tired of all the reshuffles. Think I will clean my house..May be more fun!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just posting for luck. I hate timed levels. Does anyone know if you can reset on timed levels without losing boosters?

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't believe so...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Play in the middle of the board. More cascading.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Tried maybe 10 times on laptop,where a I had plenty of sprinkles and stripe/wraps, before I finally won. Lucky to start with the sprinkle next to a wrap. Just kept plugging away getting more wraps, sprinkles and seconds that were taken out many times by the cascades. Never looked at the time or seconds left, so didn't know I'd won until time ran out. Sweet! JS

    ReplyDelete
  51. I was stuck over two weeks... hundreds or tries. I found in the end on mu phone that when all the keys are removed there are more +5 candies. I used a hammer to release a key and that did the trick. Sprinkles, +5s and stripes cascaded and I won the level. What a chore! Can't believe some people find this easy! Good luck. My best tip is that you have to quickly remove the keys and then wait for the magic to happen.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I hate to say it but this is the end of CC for me. I hate to give up after making it this far but I have spent days on this and haven't even come close to 75000 points. Special candy pairs didn't make much difference either.. I'd be willing to buy my way out of this game but that's not an option. I'll use up 5 more lives and then call it quits. It was fun while it lasted. Good luck to all that decide to hang in there. Meg in Tx.

    ReplyDelete
  53. i'll be the first to admit im not any good at timed levels and this is one of those i feel im never gonna beat. even on the few times i've collected all the keys i still havent come real close to enough points

    ReplyDelete
  54. Don't give up.. It is do-able. I got it first day, after quite a few attempts, using just a bonus sprinkle and finished easily.
    Next level is a good one!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. What??? I don't know if I should even post this, but I got it on first try, with 92,000 points, no boosters...... Lucky or what???

    Good luck everybody, if I was lucky, you will be too...

  56. Gonna take a break from CCS, this level sucks big time

    ReplyDelete
  57. Just ridiculous, doesn't even seem to be any point in using boosters as I've only got to 35000 being really lucky. 5 more lives and thats it with CC for good

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ridiculous level. Used boosters. Followed tips. Not even close.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I had a few tries when I thought I had a good run going, but ended up no where close to the points! I don't like playing when it gets me all jacked up and I want to throw my phone in frustration. Time for a break.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh no...another timed/hard level. CC getting worse :(

    ReplyDelete
  61. Like everybody else, I have played numerous games and am getting very frustrated that even with boosters there doesn't seem to be any reason to play anymore. Admittedly, I am not the best at timed levels, but where are all those +5 candies? Nowhere near enough drop to do any good.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I call bs on all these tips. I used them all for over a week and get no where close.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I soon hate timed levels so after two attempts I used both boosters available. It did the trick. Wasn't going to be stuck on that level for days.

    ReplyDelete
  64. 1525 really is a horrible level. Been playing for days and not coming close. To top it off, I just lost all of my boosters for no reason at all.

    ReplyDelete
  65. This game has become stupid. Done.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Now CC has made its intentions clear. They want people to buy boosters. That's what this whole game is about, I'm done too!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I do not understand this level. I had played before and made countless combos, one after another,. Still I did not pass. This time I was hardly able to make many combos before the clock ran out, but accumulated over 30,000 points automatically, not my doing, just the board's finish, and passed. It was a let down because I had done so well before in quickly making combos, and yet only when not doing well did I pass. Stupid luck. That's what CC is all about. I hated this level and almost quit the entire game.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I disagree that 75 seconds is generous unless you get the +5s and I have only gotten maybe 4 at the most on any game. I got 68,000 once, but the majority of games I get less than 20,000 points. Some games reshuffle after every move wasting precious seconds. The timer needs to freeze. I detest these timed levels. Been playing for two days and don't see passing anytime soon.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Start with a bomb, use it to release one color caged key, then use a lollipop hammer to hit the other caged key. Got it first try, impossible without. +5 only drop after a combo of specials.

    ReplyDelete
  70. After several days and many attempts I just managed to get 74800 points. Very frustrating to be so close... These levels are no fun at all. Just have to wait now for 5 new lives before trying again.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Finally, after many attempts! :-) The next level, also a hard level, is much more fun. So to all of you thinking of quitting now - Keep on trying, you will eventually make it and will be able to enjoy CCS again.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Really not even getting close,not have good boards to form special candies, When you see all the comments isn't it time to change the level

    ReplyDelete
  73. still struck on this level can't even get close,

    ReplyDelete
  74. Finished with CC. Ridiculous. Can't believe I actually spent money on this game & then they present us with this.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Tired of getting half way there. Came close once and not since. At a certain point in the game after a good start the 5+ candies quit coming, even with combos being made. I have tried double wrap combos, chocolate ball with a wrap and stripe. Will continue on eventually, but not my favorite at all! Maybe need a short break...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Used several boosts, even bought extra time with gold twice in the same game and still can't get enough points to beat this level. Seriously??

    ReplyDelete
  77. What a horrible level! I can only get half way, i used all my boosters, I am so finished, this is the most stupied level so far, whomever is responsible for creating this one at CC, needs to be fired! Yuk!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Love timed levels. 4th try - no boosters

    ReplyDelete
  79. Been stuck on this level for 2 weeks mostly get only 15000 . So angry at the unfairness of this.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I get no more than 35000 points, so I need to speed up moving, but when I speed up it won't move because te previous move has not been completed.

    ReplyDelete
  81. The board can be quite generous with special candies - I had 2 chocolate sprinkles together, that combination is usually a good destroyer, but didn't give hardly any points, so don't bother with that one. I've played about 4 times now (just started today) and got in the upper 64,000+ But the +5's are really mean in coming even in big cascades. Get a feeling this is going to be hard going.

    ReplyDelete
  82. well....I'm still at it. As mentioned, this would be hard going - it's beyond that. This is miserable. I've had all kinds of activity, explosions, candy matches, including chocolate/wrap, and the point counter hardly moves up the scale. I like a challenge, but this is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Just can't get by this one, the highest I've gotten is 40,000.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Ok King CC, this is absolutely ridiculous. A lucky board is absolutely the only way out. And at this rate, it might be my way out to saying goodbye to CC.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Don't despair, players! I truly was ready to quit CC based on this level. Obviously, it's not impossible as several players had conquered it. I had one life left last night, and it was the lucky board. Only one star - I would have taken half a star at this point. So, as frustrating as it is, and watching all your saved boosters going down the tubes, just hang in there.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Time to move on...this level in s beyond ridiculous. Sick of CC.

    ReplyDelete
  87. This level is ZERO fun!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Sick to death of this stupid level. Just cannot get enough 5+ candies.

    ReplyDelete
  89. After hundreds of lost lives. finally done it. What a depressing level.....

    ReplyDelete
  90. This level takes difficult to a new level, but thank you so much. You've broken my candy crush addiction.
    I'm done. Moving on with life and no more of this silly game.
    Thanks again. I'm thru.

    ReplyDelete
  91. This is the one I quit on. After making it through 1470, I didn't think anything would ever make me say that. Calling this level "difficult" is kind of like calling the Atlantic ocean "slightly damp."

    Over 200 tries and never even close. Adios CC

    ReplyDelete
  92. 43rd try. All luck, the combos kept coming and taking +5s with them. for quite a while the game just kept cascading and playing itself. This is the only way this ssssstupid level is possible. No level of skill or use of boosters will do it. HATE TIMED LEVELS !!!!!!!!!!!

  93. Soon finally done with CC

    ReplyDelete
  94. I learned on some of the first timed levels the only thing that works for me is to forget about the clock and just concentrate on making as much destruction on the board as possible so I don't even look at the clock. Got it in about 10 goes, did as much striped/wrapped and matched colour bomb with plain candy as suggested above.


















    ReplyDelete
  95. Over a week on this level with no luck, wasting color bombs in the beginning of the game, forced to use them before I could try making a combo. I finally
    decided to play on my phone (Android) and won in my first try. Every time I get on a hard level and I switch my play to the Android, I win. I don't understand why the boards are easier on the android device but thought I would pass that along. Good luck, this level is a hair pulling experience

    ReplyDelete
  96. I've played a few times and haven't come anywhere close. really frustrating…probably time to take a break

    ReplyDelete
  97. So I tried the sprinkle/hammer on the locked keys like suggested and DID NOT GET A SINGLE +5 CANDY or additional booster! ending up scoring 40k

    ReplyDelete
  98. So after I posted above, I decided I didn't want to waste any more boosters on this level. and the chocolate bombs and +5s kept falling. just kept my eyes on the board and didn't look at score or timer. glad this one is over

    ReplyDelete
  99. Used the color bomb and wrapped candy booster cleared the level in 2 tries .

    ReplyDelete
  100. To all those who have cleared this level with boosters congrats but I could use a thousand boosters and not come anywhere close. I sure miss the days of playing this game when it was enjoyable to do so. Now it's become nothing more than an addiction. Thank you all for your tips. Even though none have worked for me I'll take a breather away for a while in hopes of coming back to a lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Im gone too..enjoyed the game and all the tips on this blog but this level tells me they are running out of ideas to make it interesting, or money, so Im done.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Nobody mentioned there was an update for this level. Now its more doable.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Umm... What update is that?

    ReplyDelete
  104. Can someone tell me where the update is??? This is just total bull.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Nothing but bad reviews for this level. I've gotten nowhere also

  106. Hate timed levels!!!!!!!!! Lucky board now please!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. This level is HELL!!!!!!! Please give me a lucky board NOW please!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. This level just might be the end of candy crush for me. Can't even get close.

    ReplyDelete
  109. So... Im usually very good at timed levels. This is the first one that ive haf trouble with thus far. I've played about 5 or 6 times so far.. I've gotten around 55k. Once and nowhere near the rest... I'm stumped. No hints have helped me and I foresee pure frustration. Please post more hints! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  110. I have found that you can't reset without losing a life and any boosters that you had planned on using.

    ReplyDelete
  111. So... double speckled ball combo, then speckled ball with wrapped combo and I'm still stuck. Stupid game.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I've tried with and without boosters, even made the mistake of resetting, twice, and losing those boosters without thinking. This level is too frustrating and giving me palpitations. I read up on 1525 tips page and watched the video. I just tried again and got a good board with +5's and combo's. I didn't watch the clock just kept playing, then when it was over I could have screamed, I only got 73,400 points. I think I too will take a break and play other levels to gain some more boosters and make up for the loads I've lost.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Well here I am again, on my fifth day of trying this level. This is the longest I've been on one level since I first started which was over two years ago. I've even been to the help blog and they suggest what I'm already doing anyway. It's better apparently if you clear the two keys at the top asap. This way it clears the board for more moves, hopefully. Again I came close with 71,820 points, with still one key left to break. I've had sparkles and wraps, stripes and repeats along with the +5's but still nothing. I've tried on my laptop but that it far too slow. It annoys me when you get good combos and are ready to match them when they suddenly explode! They're not kidding when they say this level is 'Insanely Hard!' They should label it as so.
    All I've been doing is trying this level for the five lives, then back to jumping candies to gain boosters. I've been around five times so far. At least my boosters look healthy now.
    It would also seem that there is another level like this shortly after. It is totally crazy!
    Oh well keep trying. Good luck everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Finally! On the seventh day I did it! I decided to use a sparkle and wrap n stripe again, after days without boosters, but nothing happened. It's ok if they sat together when using them but they didn't. So I didn't bother with them after that. The second try, again nothing. Then the third try I got lucky and had more than one sparkle, so I used them straight away on any colour, I got more + 5's and wraps etc. I kept peeking at the score and noticed I was on 72,000 I hoped I didn't run out of time on 74,000 but I didn't. I got 79,560. What a sigh of relief.
    So all I can suggest is what others have said and use the sparkles straight away, they soon clear the keys. It certainly got the +5's coming down.

    Good luck everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  115. On this one for 2 months now....I really don't do well on timed levels. Wish there was a booster that would allow me to pass a level.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Can't King take pity on a 70 year old woman with vision issues who got this far? May have to pack it in. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  117. It never fails! When I reach a difficult level, I come to this site for advise and consolation from fellow crushers struggling. The next time I play the level, or within 3 tries, I complete. I finally completed this one, too... no boosters and a score over 75,000. THANKS!!!!

  118. This one's different, that's for sure. Usually when I hit the "lucky" board, I know it. Everything falls together. But I've had 5-6 instances so far where everything seems to click ... and at the end of it, I'm sitting at 55,000 or so.

    That said, I know it's doable because it's been done by others. That's why I say, if this one board is making you give up Candy Crush, slink away quietly.

  119. Never liked timed levels but this is almost impossible. Very frustrating and not fun at all. Wish I could get a lucky board so I can move on.

  120. Hate to quit candy crush but I think I am for at least ahile. This level is no longer fun and almost impossible.

  121. Timed never my forte! About 7 tried now, on other timed levels, been at least 30 lives,so am gonna keep trying a while...glad I came here, some really good tips in comments. Thanks to all..

  122. Waiting for the lucky bored. Yes bored with this one.

    ReplyDelete
  123. so so ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  124. So I'm posting my lucky board complaint now. I don't know if I have the patience for this anymore. I'm not getting enough combos to make it past 17,000 points.

    ReplyDelete
  125. noelle, this level is killing me too. Highest i got was 40000 and that was with a sprinkle booster. I'm usually around 15000 to 20000. About to give up again...too frustrating

    ReplyDelete
  126. I tip my hat to those who have passed this level. This is the first time I've actually thought about quitting as I can't get higher than 20,000 points, even using boosters. Timed levels are hard for me, and this one is a killer. Just like most other posters, my frustration level is at it's peak. Need to walk away for a while.....

    ReplyDelete
  127. I got to 50,000 and it felt like I was doing amazingly! I can't see a way through this one...think I'll go get some sugar drops and get some boosters like that. But they don't seem to help. I don't want to give up, but... Any ideas anyone?! xx

    ReplyDelete
  128. Friggen ridiculous!!! can't even get close this game is so dumb anymore beginning to hate it

    ReplyDelete
  129. After multiple tries, I may pack it in. I had four to five sprinkles (none from boosters), countless stripes and wraps, got all of the keys early, and still didn't make it.

    Nerve-wracking. Disappointing. Frustrating. And thoroughly unfun.

    ReplyDelete
  130. That was me posting earlier tonight. I had hours of free play thanks to the treasure chests and got nowhere, with and without boosters, with and without great boards, with and without marvelous moves. Got so incredibly bored by it that after a while I didn't care any more.

    What a waste of time. A game is supposed to be both fun and winnable. This is not a game. This is a trial, and I am, at level 1525, over and OUT. Thanks for all the wonderful help this site has given up to here --- you were all great. Bye.

  131. Ridiculous level need help please king cheers Trina

  132. Fcked up level need a lucky board now or I'm over it please

    ReplyDelete
  133. Why don't I get any +5's to add to the score stupid fckin level

    ReplyDelete
  134. The only way to pass this is with extra 5's, and the only way to get the extra five seconds to drop is my eliminating all the keys on the board. Sprinkles will help, the best reward to use. Also with these higher levels often a bonus is the only way to complete level. That's why the game provides so many opportunities to win them.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Omg this level is the end of candy crush for me it's fckin impossible

    ReplyDelete
  136. I have been on his level for 2 weeks now, playing daily, without coming close. I've tried using boosters, but when I do the board usually makes me use them on the first or second play, wasting the booster. I've tried posting for luck, but that did'nt work. I have no clue how those who finally passed this level did so. By the sheer number of posts, I can see that I'm not alone. It's getting to where I dread logging on to play since it seems so useless and totally frustrating. Any and all suggestions welcome....

    ReplyDelete
  137. Omg this level is the end of candy crush for me it's fckin impossible

    ReplyDelete
  138. Wow I hate timed levels, even the easy ones. I've come to the conclusion that I simply freeze when I see the clock. Tried everything and not even close. I think I'm nearing the end of my candy crush saga days.

    ReplyDelete
  139. This is obviously doable but I cant see how I'm going to go from an average 35 thousand to a miraculous 75 thousand, even on a lucky board. Also I'm getting hardly any +5 seconds even when I clear the board. So fed up with cc right now.

    ReplyDelete
  140. This is pretty ridiculous. How on earth are you supposed to get that many points? I thought it was a glitch until I looked on this site.

    ReplyDelete
  141. 100's of attempts at this level and no where near. You do not get to this level without having some idea of how to play but this is no longer any fun quite the opposite so it's farewell candy crush

    ReplyDelete
  142. Mmmmm I think this is where I say cheerio to candy crush. I'm on my 3rd day now and not even near the target. There's only so much of banging ones head off a brick wall that I can handle.

    ReplyDelete
  143. This is crazy, how did anyone get past this?

    ReplyDelete
  144. Didn't think I would ever get through this level. Tried starting with a free colour bomb booster and nailed it. Don't give up.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Awful awful awful. CC I may have to bid you adieu.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Old Gran here: I just cannot do it.. What do you do when you have tried every booster. Somehow these timed levels are beyond me. This is the absolute worst one text. Mt hands freeze up and my eyes go blind. I need some help!!!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Whatever you do don't post that you never buy boosters. That is the death of your chances of moving past this level. This level is utterly impossible to pass without boosters. Bye bye candy crush, think I'll go clean my house.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I'm going to play for sugar drops and see if that helps. Have to build up a ton of boosters for this level.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Olá!!! Cheguei hoje e no mesmo dia consegui passar. após algumas tentativas no celular, fui para o PC e passei de primeira. Sem usar nenhum booster. No PC é tranquilo.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Actually cleaning my house. No Candy Crush this weekend!!! Done Done Done!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  151. I have been on this timed level 1525 for 3 weeks. I have used at least 150 lives saved up from Friends. I have used countless boosters to start the game. I have reached 60,000 at two different times. And finally reached a point where I only needed 1400 to reach 75,000, but I was out of time. This is the most frustrating level EVER!!! I am not sure if there is NOT a problem. It is IMPOSSIBLE TO REACH 75,000. On my I-Pad or phone. KING, please HELP here!!!! I have enjoyed playing this game for the mental exercise. There is NOTHING mentally helpful in a TIMED level. I am just about to give up, because I cannot take the aggravation much longer. I am going back to playing Word games that actually challenge the brain. Not certain why King felt compelled to make this so difficult. DISGUSTED!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  152. Have tried a few times without luck, so I came to this page to find out that I'm not alone. Small consolation, but I will keep trying!

    ReplyDelete
  153. I started on this level August 3rd and just passed it tonight. I just actually didn't care if I passed it or not. I played only if I was incredibly bored. For whatever reason I managed to get 99,000 points and voila on to the next level. I think "not caring" is what did it!!! LOL

    No tips or advice here.

    ReplyDelete
  154. This game bas become so stupid. This is ridiculous......

    ReplyDelete
  155. I think this level was created specifically to make us use all our accumulated boosters and direct US towards their new games.
    That's it plain and simple!

    ReplyDelete
  156. Done!!! Too much wasted time*

    ReplyDelete
  157. Impossible level, these are the levels that make me not even want to play anymore, so sick of these sh*t levels.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I have now been trying to win this level for 2 weeks. I would like to say bye bye to candy crush, but every once in a while I will go back and give it a try. Definetly not a several times a day occurence anymore. These impossible levels make one lose interest very quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Never said this before, there was always a glimmer of hope with other difficult levels,but I have thrown everything I could at this level and have never come close, so bye bye CCS. Not only it is impossible (to me, any way) it is so stressful, it is not any fun. I'm done!

    ReplyDelete
  160. I totally agree with the above post. Usually there is hope, you get very close sometimes,and it gives you hope for actually passing. This one gives you nothing, no glimmer of hope. You don't get this far in the game without knowing how to play strategically, but this level is the stupidest level of them all. I am actually admitting that I am done, finally done with CC. I have always laughed at people who say that because you always come back and try try again, but alas, not this time. It is impossible to get 75,000 points. I am very sad, because I have enjoyed playing this game! Sorry to see you go.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Impossible. Think it's is the worst of the worst. Can't say I quit yet but getting to the point of finally breaking the addiction.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Been on this level for over a month and only got close once. Used all my boosters, hammers blah blah blah. nothing, zilch, load of cr@p. never thought i would give up but am bored to tears with this. anyone know a similar game that doesn't belong to king???

    ReplyDelete
  163. Well, I have been stuck here for over a month now. I am posting here just to whine and hope that helps. Nothing else works.

    ReplyDelete
  164. over a month (probably nearer 2 months) and still haven't passed this level!!!! booooooooooooooooooring. now looking for a new game to play

    ReplyDelete
  165. well, well, after complaining on her passed 2 tries later!!!

    ReplyDelete
  166. I FINALLY passed this level after hundreds of tries. Then I merrily played along until level 1544 which is a new hell that makes level 1525 look easy! I'm getting sick of CC making these super hard levels and taking the fun out of the game.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Ridiculous level. I've had numerous wrapped candies, amazing cascades, sprinkles, extra time, and at least two striped/wrapped combos, and still only got 45,000.

    ReplyDelete
  168. This isn't possible

    ReplyDelete
  169. I have been playing this level for over a month. Can't seem to get more than 19,000 points. Patiently waiting for a lucky board :/

    ReplyDelete
  170. Been stuck on this level over 10 days now. Used more then 80 saved lives. Every saved booster. Played other C levels to gain more which have all been exhausted yet nothing. Not even close bar one game where I was 73000. This is where I'm so close to deleting for good. Fed up with these frustrating levels. Isn't a game meant to be enjoyable? Well nothing enjoyable about this. Over it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  171. Can I please, please, please get a lucky board. I have been trying for over a month, playing with and without boosters. Got close once, 60,000 but usually can't get more than 15,000 points. Any new tips out there?

    ReplyDelete
  172. No point in playing this anymore as I've hit it with all sorts of combinations and still can't get over 30000 sometimes not even over 4 figures. In the video above the score rises quickly not so with me. This needs sorted so it's a fair game for everyone cc!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  173. Got it on 3rd go - just need a lucky board. First two attempts I was nowhere near, third go I got cascade after cascade and 3 stars in no time.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Perhaps lucky boards are a thing of the past. Haven't had problems with timed levels, but their moves are what eat up the time. And the reshuffling is time lost. Have never seen so many terrible comments since I started years ago. Apparently King doesn't care. Just can't quit yet!! But this level is flawed.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I got three treasure chests in a row today on my phone and the first two gave me 2hr. free play and the third gave me 6hr. for a total of 10 hours of free play... then I got to this level and I thought free play for a timed level is perfect..NOT!! I can't even say how disgusted and sick of this I am after a few hours, lol. I can only imagine what it is like when you only have 5 lives they must go by in less than 5 min. Ok so posting for luck as that has worked before. Happy New year to all :)

    ReplyDelete
  176. ugh! I had to come back and say that I got a color bomb next to a wrap and still only got 32,000!! Will I ever pass this?? Btw, I've tried all the tips and all the boosters. I don't believe King is doing this to make us buy boosters because they give us so many free ones. I think from here on out most levels will be very hard even harder than this one.

    ReplyDelete
  177. OMG, I passed!! I can't believe it I had to come back and say I think I was actually getting better at it and I wasn't using boosters because I was getting the same bad score whether I did or not. Here's my tip: whenever you can match three on the far right or left where the keys are do so as it makes the keys fall down to where you can get them. I was able to make stripe/wrap combos and they took out the caged keys.
    But I think I got a lucky board too because I had sprinkles appear and just matched them right away... YAY!! What a relief and just in time for the new year :) now I can go to bed even though I still have 4 hours of free play, haha

    ReplyDelete
  178. Very aggravating level, I have many times gotten all keys, hardly ever receive +5 candies, you keep shaking the damn candy bag and clock continues to count down, after 200 +times you should give the option to bypass a level, penalize me with no boosters for a week!!!! Something, anything UGH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  179. 190 comments is crazy... King we don't like timed levels, can you tell 😶
    Calling a lucky board please...

    ReplyDelete
  180. Success on the fourth try - after reading the above comments I was stressing but trust me - this can be done. Just take a deep breath, relax, look for those early moves to create cascades - once that starts you should have enough +5's to see you through.

    I'm old, slow and terrible at timed levels (I used to ask my teenage kid to do them for me) - so if I can survive this level anyone can.

    Fortune favours the brave!!

    ReplyDelete
  181. This is the most aggravating level that I have dealt with on Candy Crush! Timed levels are terrible but in the past at least doable. This one is so aggravating I just want to quit CC for good. I have tried all boosters and strategy to no avail. What should be enjoyable is now quite frustrating to say the least! Give us a break King, we have all been struggling with this one for a while!

    ReplyDelete
  182. Yikes! Tough one! In need of a lucky board please 😊

    ReplyDelete
  183. No boosters to help so I'm at the mercy of king... Wishing luck to all including myself...

    ReplyDelete
  184. Yikes this is really hard! Hoping for a lucky board! 😢

    ReplyDelete
  185. Not impossible. I got just below the 3 star level with no boosts. Don't give up!

    ReplyDelete
  186. Tough #** level. But here's the answer. DON'T RUSH. Sounds silly, but that's the only way. Keep calm, keep slowly looking for matches while continuing to grab +5 candies to extend time for points to rack up. It takes lots of tries, but be persistent AND patient! GOOD LUCK,

    ReplyDelete
  187. I passed this level on the third try with over 110,000 points. As is common knowledge to players that have come this far, just had to wait for the famed lucky board. I had numerous opportunities to make color bombs and wrapped candies when the lucky board came down. I would recommend playing this level on a PC. I tried a dozen or more times on mobile and the opportunities for specials and combos were far less than on PC.

    ReplyDelete
  188. This level just gives me a headache. Unbelievably boring. No tips to share because I can't even get close.
