Dreamworld Level 43 is one of the toughest levels in Odus the Owl’s Dreamworld mode of the Candy Crush Saga game. But software engineer and Candy Crush player Dennis Yang, 47, has managed to beat this level – with a massive 260,000+ points.
I asked the player, who is from Pleasanton, California, in the USA, for some tips and strategies for playing Odus the Owl’s Dreamworld Level 43. To find out what he said, do read on.
Why is Dreamworld Level 43 so difficult for players?
We have been conditioned to unlock candies when this level is all about points, so we tend to waste precious moves to unlock things. Also, keeping Mr Owl balanced is extremely important in this level.
What is a good starting board to begin the game with?
One with a good chance to break open multiple candies on the top level in the first few moves.
What are some tips that you can give readers for Dreamworld Level 43?
In addition to the tips given by Prischew Dot Com:
Try not to unlock the lower set of locked candies until you have unlocked some from the top row. Those candies in between the locked rows can help unlock the top ones. If they are used to unlock the bottom row first, it’ll become very difficult to do so to the top ones later.
Pop a horizontally striped candy in the row of locked candies and you can possibly unlock the rest of the row in one pop.
Fill Odus the Owl’s Moon Scale by matching candies at the bottom of the game board, so that cascades will take place. This fills up the owl meter more quickly.
Keep Odus the Owl balanced as a top priority. Make sure that the Moon Scale doesn’t topple over.
What was your own strategy to achieving such phenomenal success at Dreamworld Level 43?
Use colour bombs only on candies that are not on the ends of the owl scale. I think that this helped with balancing the scale.
Rather than setting off striped candies, I focused on getting colour bombs. These colour bombs give points while the striped candies tend to upset the owl scale
Once it looked like I’ll get the points and pass (I think I was over 140,000 then), I only matched candies near the top of the screen to minimize upsetting the owl scale.
Basically, keeping the scale balanced and so leverage the owl power to eliminate two kinds of candies each time, is a great tip. Popping striped candies like I was doing before on level 43 is useless and often led to the owl tipping.
By the way, I did not have to use a booster to pass and still ended up with over 260,000 points. Before that I had burned a number of colour bombs and 145,000 was the closest I got. Paying close attention to balancing the owl scale and watching what I blew up, I passed with three stars – awesome!
What is the most important thing that players should do, to pass this level?
Keep Mr. Owl Balanced by making sure the Moon Scale does not topple over.
What do you think is the biggest challenge of Dreamworld Level 43?
The biggest challenge would be boards that give you little to no opening to pass. I had a board that ran out of possible moves after two moves. With so few moves allowed, every move counts.
What are some of the most common mistakes at this level?
Forgetting about balancing the scale. Not watching for secondary matches that may tip the scale.
