I beat Candy Crush Level 165. To find out some good strategies and tips to win, do read on.
This is another notoriously hard level in the Candy Crush Saga game – and the main reason is the sheer number of candy colours that are on the board. The majority of the levels have five candy colours, but in Level 165, all of the six candy colours are present.
At the same time, there are so many other factors to make this level even more challenging than it already is. You have to collect 99 blue candies, 49 yellow candies and 24 green candies within 60 moves – and battle the merciless chocolate factories at the same time. Trying to battle the chocolate alone is really no joke – let alone machines that spew out this menace at a totally phenomenal rate. What’s more, there are also the bombs raining down on the screen that must be dealt with – before they are able to explode on you.
But then again, this level is not impossible if you know what you are doing. Here are some tips to help you break through this level and beat it.
Let your overall priority be the bombs and not the candy orders
When you see a bomb raining down onto the screen, you should try and clear these, because in this level, you only get a few moves before the bomb explodes on you.
As you probably know already, the bombs are merciless and they will immediately end your game even when you may have only one or two moves left to complete the level.
In fact, do note that clearing the bombs should actually be your priority in this game – not the level objective, because of their ability to completely end the game especially when you are on a roll.
Make your second focus the chocolate, not the candy orders
I know that it can be hard to achieve this, especially when the chocolate threatens to consume your entire game. But you don’t have to let it, by killing off some chocolate with every move that you make. In this way, you can easily keep the chocolate at bay. It does not matter whether the chocolate is killed via a direct or indirect move though.
In fact, you should focus on the chocolate second – after the bombs, and not the candy orders – because this also has the potential to end your game, if your board is entirely covered with chocolate.
Do not worry about the green or yellow candies at all
Try and focus your efforts on clearing the blue candies off from the board. Do not even think about the green or yellow, as these will naturally disappear with matches and cascades that you indirectly produce. After all, you must pick up a massive 99 blue candies. So try and get rid of the blue candies whenever you see a match possible – unless of course, you have a bomb to immediately get rid of.
Try and form speckled colour bombs
Those speckled colour bombs will come useful in this level if you are able to match them with those blue candies. So if you are able to make them, try and make sure you use them on the blue candies.
They are quite hard to make at this level though because you have six colours to deal with. In fact, it must be mentioned that Level 165 is one of the notoriously few levels to feature all of the candy colours available.
Do not Give Up
Sometimes, you may not even have 99 blue candies to clear from the board in the first place, as every game is totally random. So do not despair when this happens. Just simply pick yourself up and play the game again, because you will eventually have enough blue candies after several tries of this hard level.
