To only just have realised that the direction of the stripes on the candies in Candy Crush dictates which way the fuckers explode

Level 133 and I have only just realised that the stripes on the candies tells you which way the little bastards will explode. I thought it was random.

I really need to get a life!

Any tips PLEASE for level 97, stuck for 2 weeks now, and yes hold my hands up am a sad CC addict

Omg pointy oversensitive? It was a joke.

plus I would happily poke fun at all the above

Strongecoffeeismydrug Sat 03-Aug-13 21:26:21

Stuck on level 361hmm
Anyone got any tips

pointythings Netherlands Sat 03-Aug-13 21:15:32

softly how is it any worse than

- people in silly trousers taking a small white ball for a long country walk by way of a stick
- people in silly shorts/skirts whacking a poor defenceless ball at each other with two objects superficially resembling fishing nets
- people in silly all over white cloth body armour poking at each other with long pointy objects until one of them scores 15 points
- people wearing full makeup and sparkly swim suits dancing around mostly under water

etc. etc.

It's a bit of fun. People like talking about their hobbies/pastimes. Why is this a problem for you?

I'm on level 100 and did't know til I read this thread!

Glory be, I've done 65! The sweet relief, new episode started

softlysoftly Sat 03-Aug-13 21:05:15

Can you people hear yourselves?!

Stripy jazzle exploding fish eating jelly with lollipop hammers.....

I was wondering what happened if you swap two colour bomb things, now I know smile

I got stuck on 65 for flipping ages.

bruffin England Sat 03-Aug-13 20:58:25

If they are vertical then you have to move the 4th sweet horizontally to get it in line.
I'm stuck on 153 where you have to get two of the spotted bomb ones lined up. It doesn't have a lot moves either.

ModernToss Sat 03-Aug-13 20:52:05

Currently struggling with 181, which is entirely about exploding horizontal stripes, so I had definitely figured out the direction in which they explode. What's weird is that I can only create a horizontal stripe candy by lining up four vertical sweets.

I know this is true because I have done it 3126 times today.

FobblyWoof Sat 03-Aug-13 20:16:10

Also- have you seen the devestation causes if you swap two of those five in a row candy sweet things? Was brilliant grin

FobblyWoof Sat 03-Aug-13 20:14:54

Fuck, how did I not know this?

Bearbehind Sat 03-Aug-13 19:15:27

Love it period! I'm sticking with your story too!

I've just completed level 133- yay!

PeriodFeatures Sat 03-Aug-13 18:36:36

Blimey forget I thought I was quite intelligent- it appears I'm thick as shit!

There was an article in the independent some months ago that suggested that this game only appeals to intelligent people. That is it's target market.

That was all the justification I needed to continue playing it!

pointythings Netherlands Sat 03-Aug-13 18:30:06

Level 65 is a bitch. I love swapping two of the speckly chocolate ones, it just rocks...

Am on 196, having been stuck on 191 for about 4 days because I solved it at a time when the bloody Candy Crush server went down, grrr!

So far 147 has been the absolute worst level of the lot.

HouseAtreides Sat 03-Aug-13 17:51:39

I am on level 370-something. Maternity leave well spent...

Nottalotta Sat 03-Aug-13 17:29:03

Oh dear god. Just failed again. Knowing this didn't help me in the slightest. That bastard chocolate!!! I also refuse to pay - i did pay to move onto the next bit before but thats all. Therein lies madness!!

Pawprint Sat 03-Aug-13 17:24:30

Nooo! I didn't realise that either! I'm only on level 56 and refuse to pay for any boosters etc.

I hate the levels with chocolate and I hate the levels with fruit/nuts that you have to bring down. In fact, I hate the whole fucking game and will -never delete it.

Notta, I've been on 65 for FOUR weeks!!! I refuse to pay I move on

Nottalotta Sat 03-Aug-13 16:57:39

I did not know this. I have been stuck on 65 for an age. How many levels are there ffs??

Also, i had the lolly hammers early on without paying but no idea how they came about.....toddles off to try 65 AGAIN!!!

BlissfullyIgnorant Sat 03-Aug-13 16:55:29

Anyone else here managed to swap a pair of Rocky Roads (the ones that wipe out along the one colour)? They wipeout the entire hoard of candies, all except none. It's soooo satisfying

I heard Candy Crush described as the crack cocaine of gaming junkies. They're not wrong.

EeTraceyluv Sat 03-Aug-13 16:27:46

haha! I have no idea how I've even made it to level 49!!

noblegiraffe Sat 03-Aug-13 15:30:12

The chocolate special clears the screen of all of whichever candy you switch it with, so aim for one there are loads of.

If you switch it with a striped one, it turns all of that colour into striped ones and then explodes them, which is great.

Switching a striped and a wrapped sweet isn't as good, but it makes and explodes a massive sweet.

I'd expect you to know this but if you haven't even figured out the line thing then maybe not!

Can I just point out that there is a wiki page about Candy Crush and the various bombs/sweets etc.....here

Shutupanddrive Sat 03-Aug-13 15:21:53

I'm on 208 and I didn't know that either!
