30 moves to clear out 72 jellies?! Candy Crush has gone crazy, don’t you think? Well, no, not really. See, this level is not as hard at it looks like on paper. Initially, the candies will form a heart shape. Afterwards, they will all fall flat to the all the slots, even clearing out most of the jellies for you. There are actually no tricky corners or voids, so this level is not as difficult as it sounds. To make it even simpler, here are some effective tips you must remember:
1. Reset the game…
if the original setup didn’t clear much of the jellies.
2. Get a special candy combo:
The one that could work wonders in this level is the colour bomb + striped candy combination. This can achieve your goal with less than 10 moves! Make sure that opportunities to make special candies do not leave your sight.
3. Keep track of the jellies:
Don’t be so caught up with making special candies; you might be missing some jellies. Make sure you focus on clearing the jellies with as few moves as possible. After all, leftover moves would activate a swarm of jelly fish just waiting to bestow upon you thousands of points!
Available Moves: 19 moves
Goal: Bring down all ingredients (4 apples)
One Star: 40,000 points
Two Stars: 50,000 points
Three Stars: 60,000 points
With such a weirdly shaped board and only 19 moves to bring down 4 ingredients, Level 17 could easily be the hardest level in the Candy Factory episode. This surely provided the first taste of getting really stuck for candy crushers who came before us, and it is very easy for us to also fall prey to this level’s challenges. That’s why it is very important for you to bear in mind these effective tips and strategies:
1. Reset the board when you see that it’s hard to work with.
Bear in mind that this level is challenging, so you’d need all the luck and help you can get. The first one you should get is a lucky board (those with special candy opportunities and available combinations UNDER the ingredients). Reset until you find one like this!
2. Tricky ones first!
For this level, the leftmost and the rightmost apples are the hardest to slide down, so make sure you deal with those ones first! You can also try switching those corner ingredients into inner columns where they have better chances of getting dropped!
3. Make vertical stripes:
This is a sure fire way of dropping those required ingredients! If you manage to bring your ingredients to stay in one column, a sole vertical stripe would actually get the job done for you!

Goal: Clear all jelly (20 double coated jelly frames)
One Star: 40,000 points
Two Stars: 65,000 points
Three Stars: 85,000 points
In this level, you are introduced to the double coated jelly – jellies that require twice clearing. So technically, there are 40 jellies, because each of the 20 jellies has another layer underneath. No need to worry, though, this level is still manageable. If you remember these tips well, I’m sure you won’t take long:
1. Find your lucky board.
For this level, there are only four candies playable. This means there is a big chance of getting a special candy on your first move! Reset the game until you find one board that will allow you to have a colour bomb on the first move.
2. Continue making special candies and mixing them:
It is almost impossible to run out of special candies in this level, so just keep looking! A pair of colour bombs is what you would want best to work around those candies that are in the immediate vicinity of the cross-void.
3. Work from the bottom:
If you do, however, run out of special candies; just keep on making regular combinations on the lower portion of the game board. Cascade effects are especially effective in this level that only has four colours. Always be mindful of how many moves and jellies you have left, though! Make sure you have enough to clear that final stubborn candy!
4. Double-check the spinning wheel! Don’t miss out in freebies!
Available Moves: 35 moves
Goal: Clear all jelly (43 double jelly frames)
One Star: 75,000 points
Two Stars: 165,000 points
Three Stars: 210,000 points!
More jellies, yay! You’d be thankful for this level when you get further into the Saga, remember that! 43 double jelly frames positioned in an X-shape is not very easy, seeing that there are corner jellies that may be tricky to handle if you don’t have special candies at your arsenal. Notice how the top and bottom rows have voids, allowing only regular combinations on the corners. Don’t worry though! With these tips, you’d be sure to crack this case in no time:
1. Get a lucky board!
For this level, be sure to find a board that would allow you to deal with the corner jellies first. This way, you get to the tricky ones first, and then you’d be able to cruise along.
2. Cascade effect your way through all those jellies!
You shouldn’t have to worry too much about the middle jellies; they take care of themselves as long as you make sure that the bottom ones get all the attention they deserve – need, I meant.
3. Get all the special candies that you can.
A pair of wrapped candies is exceptionally helpful in this level, but any special combination will do, as long as you manage to hit each jelly twice.
4. Good luck, and have fun! Oh, and have you had your daily spin?
Available Moves: As much as you can in under a minute
Goal: Score at least one star in one minute
One Star: 15,000 points
Two Stars: 25,000 points
Three Stars: 45,000 points
This is the first timed level! It’s pretty simple, since it’s just the introductory for timed levels, so you shouldn’t have any problems finishing this level. Challenge yourself and raise the bar very high. Set your goal not only in getting a star; aim for three! Here’s how you can do that (and maybe beat your friends’ scores, too!)
1. Do not waste time!
It’s a race against time, so you cannot waste even one second. It’s just a minute! So, just make the first combination your eyes see. I’m sure by now your eyes are trained to scout special candies, so there shouldn’t be a problem! Candy Crush also gives out +5 second bonus for fast combos, so make one combination after the other to score these bonuses!
2. Choose the version you’d like to play.
Slow devices/connections can really affect your game, so if your internet is faster than your device, play on the Facebook version.
3. Once you have reached the goal, leave the +5 bonus candies alone.
They turn into special candies when time is over, so they will really cause your score to soar sky high.
4. Have fun! Try not to panic too much, and don’t forget to claim your daily free booster by spinning the wheel!

Goal: Clear all jelly (27 jelly frames)
Target Score: 27,000 points
Two Stars: 50,000 points
Three Stars: 90,000 points
In this level, you are introduced to meringues. Meringues are white sheets that serve as blockers. For this particular level, there are 27 meringue blocks, each one hiding a jelly frame underneath. Basically, this means that you have to clear out the meringue first before proceeding to clearing out the jelly that’s underneath. There are 45 moves available for this, so it is not that hard. It’s not a complete walk in the park, though. So here are some tips to help you get over this level easily:
1. Make moves adjacent to the hill of meringue.
Meringue blockers get cleared when you make combinations adjacent to them. The earlier you
break through the hill of meringue, the better your chances are of finishing the level. Remember that
you cannot get to the jelly in any other way, so better focus on this task first.
2. Assess the candy situation:
If you see that the board given to you doesn’t have combination opportunities near the
meringue hill, then don’t waste time and simply reset the game. You have more levels to battle, so
better get going!
3. Make special candies:
The huge meringue hill can easily be cleared using a pair of wrapped candies, so try to land that
if possible. You are going to need all the specials you can get, though, so just make a lot and match them with each other to get good results!
