Level 169 of Candy Crush Saga can be beaten

But Level 169 is actually a very tricky level in Candy Crush Saga because it is covered with chocolate factories that generate chocolate mercilessly. The combinations are not easy to create, especially the colour bombs, because of the six candy colours on the screen as well as the small and thin size of the game board. What is more, the chocolate can really mess up your entire game because you don’t know where it is coming from and you can’t stop it at all.

But Level 169 is not impossible to play. Here are some tips that you may use to beat Level 169 of the Candy Crush Saga game.

Simply create special candies

This should be your main objective of this level. No matter how many special candies you might have on the screen, you must keep creating more. Also, do not focus on a single type of special candy. Just simply keep on creating them because this will maximise your chances of completing this hard level. At the same time, your precious special candies can be blown up before they can be matched and you never know when your next one is coming from, either.

Seize any chance to get colour bombs

Making of the colour bombs is possibly the hardest thing at this level, because of the number of candy colours on the screen. So whenever you get one, try your best to get a striped candy next to it and clear this particular combination from your list. Also, just keep on looking out for chances to create colour bombs.

For example, if you have a choice between making a wrapped candy or a colour bomb (this has happened to me several times during my games) then go for the colour bomb as this is a tricker thing to achieve – even though you might already have another one on the screen. Who knows, the position of this second colour bomb on the game board might make it much easier to match with a striped candy compared to the original one you created in an earlier move.

Do not waste your moves

You must be really strategic with your moves at this level and do not use any for fun. For example, if you see a chance to create a special candy, but you are getting over-run with chocolate at the same time, you should make the special candy first, because this could mean the difference between success and failure. If you clear the chocolate, you may not be able to create that special candy again later. After all you only have a mere 35 moves to play around with, unlike other levels where you are given 50 or even 60 moves in total.

    I never understood what ” collecting orders” means. I got through all those other levels by sheer luck. This level 169 is tough. All I’m doing is created combos and clearing them, no matter what color. Can someone please set me straight on what the strategy in these levels is?

    • Priscilla says:

      Collecting orders means that there are certain items you have to collect, that is, match together. There are several different orders you need to collect and you will see what is needed at the start of the level.

      In Level 169 you must collect 1 wrapped candy + striped candy combination, 1 striped candy + striped candy combination, 1 colour bomb + striped candy combination and score at least 35,000 points in 35 moves or fewer. The colour does not matter. So a basic strategy would be to keep creating special candies in the hope of being able to get them together to make a candy combo. Luck is needed too.

      Hope that helps!

  • Leah says:

    I’ve been on this for literally 5 months, even paid for extra moves/special moves and still not completed it. I’m getting really annoyed now!

    • Priscilla says:

      Persevere and you WILL beat this level.

      Maybe the free daily boosters from the Booster Wheel may give you the edge to get past this level. 🙂

    Is there a reason why my Level 169 has a point requirement of 60,000 rather than 45k like everyone else seems to state? After downloading an update my new requirement dropped to 57,000.

    • Priscilla says:

      Has anyone else had the same problem? Please share! Thanks.

      Btw, have you passed this level before? I’ve encountered Candy Crush sometimes updating the points total to your previously successful score when I return to a level I have passed before.

    This level is so crazy it is not even funny!! I have accomplished all of the combos which is hard enough to even explain.. Then I didn’t have enough points!! Not fair!! Any answers??

  • melmo says:

    i’ve gotten the required combinations THREE TIMES now and every time i failed the level because i didn’t reach 45,000 points. i hate this level. i think it’s been about 2 weeks now and i don’t normally spend more than 2 days trying to get past a level -_-

    just venting. harumph.

  • Sharon says:
