Candy Crush Saga Level 2073 tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2973 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2073 is a timed level and you have to score 100,000 points in 12 seconds!
This is almost as bad as it sounds, but not quite, as there are extra time candies surrounding the main board and more will fall every time you clear any.
The difficulty is that the timer never goes above 12 seconds no matter how many extra time candies you collect, so there is no thinking time at all, it is full on fast playing until you get to the score.
Unfortunately, cascades are not always a good thing if there are no extra time candies in the main playing area as the time will keep running down even if you have a move ready and you can't make a move until the cascades stop.
Look at the extra time candies before the timer starts and see if there are any moves to be made in the extra time candies, then play in the middle and save this move until the timer runs down a little. This will give you the best possible extra time. 
If there are mini cascades use the time to look for moves in the extra time candies.
You will need some luck with the mystery candies but usually they will help a bit.

The only way one can win on this level is to keep playing until you get a lucky board. There is no strategy to playing this! Other than it is almost impossible!!!

I really think there is a glitch in this. Every time I get close to the 100,000, all of a sudden the board freezes. One of the candies starts to flash and nothing else happens and I have to end the game.

Any suggestions?

This board's glitched on me twice, after I've reached 100,000. A bomb at the top continuously explodes and the screen freezes.

Unknown said...

You know, I've tried and failed at this level like 50 times, and still, I love it.

Isn't this how hard the game should be after 2000 levels?

Anonymous said...

mine's glitching too

lala said...

Got it after about ten tries but ugh

Anonymous said...

I have tried this level probably around 100 times. The closest I have come is around 500,000. I am an elderly person and my eyes cannot identify matches that quickly. I cannot even scan the whole board in 12 seconds. Once I find a match there is not enough time left to execute it. Any Suggestions?

Anonymous said...

Sorry.....The above post should say 50,000 not 500,000. These old eyes put in one to many 0's.

Anonymous said...

I see the same bug. One candy at the top of the board just flashes non-stop

cedarberry said...

Yep, there's a glitch alright. Same candy on top of board flashes and locks up the level. Boy, between subtracting moves on some of the recent levels making them unbelievably frustrating time-wasters and now this game-freeze, with only 12 seconds too? Not cool at all.

To the "elderly" person above....you've made it this far....you are ROCKING it !!! = )

I got lucky! I got it on the 5th attempt 110,000 points without boosters (it's useless to use them, anyway.) Concentrate on matching the mystery candies because some of them turn into color bombs which will boost your score. I think I got 3 or 4 of them. You can match +5 candies in the perimeter to buy some time if necessary but you won't go over 12 seconds. The +5 candies turn into wraps and explode to increase your score when time runs out but you have to be close to 100,000 to go over it.

Helpme said...

Are you kidding me! 12 seconds. This might be my downfall

Anonymous said...

stupid level! The time runs out while you are waiting for a cascade to complete that only scores a couple of thousand points anyway! Waste of time round. If you get anywhere near it freezes at the top.

None said...

It's no glitch, it's on purpose. Pointless

Anonymous said...

After many,many tries and always getting between 33,000 and 60,000 points finally got a lucky board. Lots of extra +5 candies and chocolate sprinkles. It was like fireworks. Got 186,300 points but still only one star. Just glad to be finished with it.

I started with a color bomb and it did the trick!

Loved this level and loving this episode...we all get free boosters...use them!!!

Candy crush queen said...

Work the middle board and you can past with at least 1 star without booster

billyrabbit said...

Hate this level, impossible for those of us who are partially colour blind.

Anonymous said...

I found the glitch too. Got over 100,000 points but it froze with 12 seconds remaining and stopped saying no possible switches? What??!! I'll keep trying ��

The person who designed this one has no respect for handicapped people. One of the few games people with poor eyesight and crippled fingers can play because it's not time oriented. Now it's almost normal to have them. Not to take away from the others, playing with having to use a certain amount of moves lets us all play.

Need the lucky board

Julie d said...

Should have looked here before I played. Couldn't understand why all my matched 5 second candies weren't tallying up . Thought there was an issue. Not sure how I did it as I'm not usually so good on the timed levels, but passed on 3rd try, no boosters. All I can suggest is to play equally the middle and the outer board. Seemed to work for me. Good luck.

Bookboss said...

Lucky board i think, pazsed 3rd go once i realised the clock doesnt go above 12 seconds! My tip is to play the middle of the board but when cascades are falling keepnan eye on the timed candies around the board and be ready to match for more time.

So last week my phone died and I lost all my free boosters and lives that friends have given me. I had 98 lives, over 400 check mark boosters, almost 400 coconut wheels, 43 color bombs, 40 hammers,etc. I only play on my phone and I've never purchased any boosters so 4the restore purchases function didn't work. I had start completely over. I know that's not relevant to this frustrating level, but it'd sure be nice to have all those color bombs and striped/ wrapped combos back. I've played this 3 times now with no boosters and the best I've done is 61,000. Too addicted to stop.My cool down period for sugar drops will end during the night, so I'll be playing sugar drops before I go to work and hoping to get lots of striped/wrapped candies and color bombs!

Anonymous said...

Definitely a sprinkle ball with a timed candy to get high score

Anonymous said...

I hate hate hate timed levels but I've only gone and done it!!! Only after 5 attempts too and no boosters so I guess my lucky board came early on. Does anybody think that this episode hasn't been as much fun at all?

Anonymous said...

Very doable. Got it on the second try. Worked in the centre board for a couple of seconds, then used timed candies to get more time, worked in the centre board again, etc. My game lasted more than a minute.

Anonymous said...

Mine also stuck three times, as passing with over 100,000. One of the wraps just keeps pulsing. King needs to get with it. This is stupid. No point to playing.

bill.the cat said...

What billyrabbit said. The blue and purple eggs look the same to me. I cant do it.

angellashelle said...

Me too!!! Finally a level of fun explosions and chaos :) I hope I don't win it too quickly because it's more fun trying this level than some of the others.

angellashelle said...

Just wanted to thank this site and Cookie.... with all the negative comets , she continues to guide us as best as she can and I appreciate it. I come here everyday to read everyone's advice and I'm this high in levels because of this site and all your player comments. Sometimes the hateful "I quit" comments make me giggle because I'm right there with yall. I understand your pain, the struggle is REAL! Lol but I keep playing I love it... and thank you candycrushsagaallhelp... I appreciate ya!! *keep on crushing* this level is fun

angellashelle said...

I haven't gone backward to play for sugar drops until recently... I didnt realize there was a "cool down" period... can you explain that to me?? Is it after you've gotten to the 180 or whatever??

angellashelle said...

Also... do u go back to level 1 and just play all with the sugar drop icon? Or are there certain "go to" levels?

Just over 100,000 points, 3 times in a row and facing the freeze of the game.

What's King's point in this?

This level must be CC's revenge on me for all the recent hard levels that I got first few tries. Every time I'm doing good,I get the eternal flashing +5 glitch. It appears that when a +5 drops from a dispenser, between two candies the color that it is, it goes off right away and the cycle repeats forever.

Posting for more luck.

Got it on my 83rd try. No boosters. The board just started producing an unusual Qty of color bombs. Just barely made one star. Thank God that's over with.

Krusher said...

Got this one done on about my 5th try. I was going to give up on the PC because my mouse is a bit rubbish, but in the end got 150K.

No real tactic except make as many matches in the middle. Leave the +5s to themselves.

The only time I went to the +5s was when there was no match in the middle, so you have to do all the +5s to get a reshuffle. Then carry on.

Anonymous said...

Wow! I beat it my 3rd try! This is the first time ever I beat a timed levels without trying 500 times or so. Either King made this level easier now or I simply got a lucky board quick. If this old lady can do it, y'all can do it! Wishing everybody a lucky board and fast win!

Lol!!!!!

Cat said...

I love the elderly who bitch that their reflexes arent fast enough to play boards like this. Lmao.


Yet those are the same folks on the road driving vehicles.

Go play bingo!!!!

Anonymous said...

I have been stuck on this level for weeks. Not because it's that difficult, once you get a lucky board... but because every time I reach 100k pts,, and the clock runs out, the script hangs on the final wrapped explosions. I've beat this level numerous times to no avail whatsoever. What's the point in continuing to play, if you win and don't advance??? King must know by now there's a glitch in this level. So why don't they fix it? About to quit CC for good, out of frustration.

Anonymous said...

Wow the more I play the lower the score. Very frustrating. Wish me luck.

Anonymous said...

while you are playing in center, your eyes should always search on 4 sides for a match, especially during cascading in center, leave the match until you have only 5 seconds left, then use it to prolong game time. Keep updating outside escape because the match is often destroyed by center stripes. If you got a color bomb, try to hold as long as you can, it is best if you can use it on timed bomb color, but any color will give you full 12 seconds again. This is not a terrible difficult level, you do need to keep calm for about 60 seconds(4~5 refills are needed to get enough points) -PH

JUST HAD THE SAME PROBLEM......FIX IT PLEASE KING

First go 70k, second was 28k, the next two attempts I was too slow and the times ran out when I had only scored around 6k but it went up to 35k both times. Made it on the fifth try. Just with 101k.

Cat, you are really an asshat. Go F yourself for that rude comment. Posting for luck, too!

Need to be very quick for this level.

Do not like timed levels.

Anonymous said...

You don't need to collect the full 100,000 before time runs out. I had around75k but the times candies turn into candy wraps and I ended up with over 125k. Hang in there. You can do this.

Anonymous said...

12 seconds? Seriously? Just posting for luck and to tell Cat her comment was disgusting and uncalled for. Shame on you. Good luck everyone.

Anonymous said...

I played for about two weeks before I got to about 70000 at the end. I paid gold bars to play on and the time then changed to 15 seconds. That made it so easy I finally let the time run out at about 150,000. It was worth the gold bars to pass this one - I would have paid cash!!!

@ angellashelle

I do the sugar drop levels as often as I can. Once you've maxed out there is an 8 hour cool-down period till you can do it again. I NEVER pay for bonus stuff anymore. 1476 is my favourite level but there are many more. 281, 666, 654, 511, 1003. If you google "best sugar drop levels" you'll find a few lists that people have compiled. Keep on crushin! Penny

Posting for luck and to tell Cat the comment made was RUDE, and I think it should be taken off the site! Thanks for all you do, Cookie!

I was getting depressed on the last level but eventually using a move and a hammer after a lot of thought I beat it. As a pensioner there is no way I can think this one. I will have to just have to click as fast as possible and hope for a lucky board.

In reply to your post - how in heavens name do you manage to accumulate 98 lives ???!!! I play through face book on my laptop and even if it shows there are for eg 8 lives waiting for you, there is never that many when the game actually starts up. Plus, when you exit the game, thats it, any lives that were there are automatically swiped, they never carry over to the next session. And , I have never gotten a jackpot prize spin either.........

With only 12 seconds to play it takes just ONE MINUTE to go through all 5 lives!! Well, at least I wont be wasting too much time trying to pass this level! Posting for luck :) Karina

Fix the glitch. 2 weeks finally passed it ..twice..and that flashing candy took over ... put me through to the next level or fix it !!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Best I've done is 55,000. I can barely make 3 or 4 moves in 12 seconds!! I haven't tried a choco bomb booster yet because I think it just might be a total waste. Please King, give us a break!!!!

Anonymous said...

still a glitch. this one at the top flashes and the game freezes. oh well sos

laura said...

Same thing just happened to me on pc. It's late February so glitch is still on.

auntiejet53 said...

1st of March and the glitch is still there!!! I wonder should I keep trying? is the glitch going to be fixed??

Suzie O said...

Anon, Feb.3, you should try playing on a mobile device like phone or tablet, lots of perks. When friends send you lives they accumulate and are there day after day until you use them.. I have over 200. Also on mobile you can reset the board if you don't like it (not on timed levels) by exiting before you make a move and you don't lose a life or boosters.

So I see that King has made a change and that helped me get past this... while you start with 12 seconds now you can go up to 27 when you add the extra time candies... before it would not go past 12 seconds.

Anonymous said...

I score more if I don't even make a play and just let the timer run out. lol

Anonymous said...

2 weeks and still trying.....give me that lucky board PLEASE.

Anonymous said...

Susie O mentions being able to use candies to get up to 27 seconds. Not on my ipad. I can't go past 12 seconds and the games mechanics often take that long to register my last move.

Anonymous said...

Am hating this level don't like time levels anyway but this one is a nightmare. My 5 games finish in less than 3 minutes and haven't managed to get more than 50000 points. Usually these blogs give really helpful advice but am struggling here.

3 weeks on this and still not even close. Would be grateful for a luck board.....please.
