How to Beat Hard Level 140 of Candy Crush Saga

Level 140 is a notoriously hard level in the Candy Crush Saga smartphone game. This is because of the sheer number of candy orders that you are required to collect – 99 red candies, 99 orange candies and 99 yellow candies. In total, that is an incredible 297 candies – a high amount by anyone’s standards. It means that you have to be incredibly lucky in the moves that you make, as a result of this.

Moreover, you have only 45 moves to do so. It means therefore, that you must collect an average of 6.6 candies in a single move. So your match-three combinations are not enough.

At the same time, the boredom of the game board at level 140, can also put off many players. There is not a single blocker around to spice up the game and make it more interesting. It is your standard square game board with nothing but candies on it.

So how do you beat this incredibly hard and boring Candy Crush Saga level? Here are some tips on how to do so.

Form Colour Bombs

Try and form colour bombs whenever you have the chance. These come about when you are able to match five candies of the same colour together.

When you have your colour bombs, don’t waste them too. Try and match these together with the candy colour that you are having the most trouble in collecting, in order to maximise their usage.

Alternatively, you could match the colour bomb with the colour order that is the most abundant on the board, so that you can seize as many of these within a single move.

Moreover, clearing candies using colour bombs will form cascades when the new candies fall down onto the screen. As a result, you may be able to benefit by collecting even more candies in a single move – and help you to complete this level.

  • Match two colour bombs together

You need some degree of luck in order to get two colour bombs together but it is not impossible, as I have experienced it a few times when I was playing Candy Crush Saga – without the usage of boosters.

But if you can get two of these together in this level, it is a very powerful and potent combination, because it clears every single candy from the board – and will go a long way in helping you to fulfil your objective of collecting the 275 red, orange and yellow candies from the board.

Match two wrapped candies together

If you are able to put two wrapped candies together, this is also quite powerful, though not as strong as the colour bomb + colour bomb combination. It clears a 9 by 9 square of candies off from the board, which is a massive chunk by anyone’s standards. This will help you to fulfil the requirements of this level, because it should clear many red, orange and yellow candies in a single move – especially if they are abundantly represented in that 9 by 9 square that is cleared. Moreover, you may also benefit, once again, from cascading candies – which will thus clear even more candies for you.

    I DID IT!

    OMG I finally beat Level 140 with no cheats. How? Got 2 cookie/stripe combos but second one had a board full of yellows and the stripe was a yellow. Massive takedown. Still, even with 2 cookie/stripes and a stripe/wrapped I still made it with just 2 moves to spare. Brutal brutal level.

    P.S., This game is easier on the PC in Facebook than the Android version. You get better combos.

  • Bill Mitchell says:

    The most annoying aspect of this level is how it intentionally screws you when you get close. I have 10 moves left with under 10 of each ingredient after a big board clearing move. But guess what, all of the pieces on the board are now the wrong pieces and what correct pieces are there are spread so far apart you have no chance to get them. So basically the game has just declared YOU SHALL NOT PASS! All that hard work and strategy and the game just laughs at you and give you NO CHANCE.

    The only way you can beat this level without buying cheats is at least 2 cookie cookie combos, 2 cookie stripe combos and a stripe wrap combo – and even then you may not make it because the game will screw you in the end.

  • Bill Mitchell says:

    I have literally had 2 cookies next to each other which clears the board, 2 cookie stripe combinations and a stripe wrapped combination all in one game and STILL not been able to beat this level. I’ve gotten down to under 10 on all 3 ingredients but you run out of moves. As a matter of principle, I will not buy extra moves to beat a level.

    So far, unless you buy cheats, this level is impossible. When you can combine multiples of the biggest board clearing moves and still not win, it is obviously designed to force you to buy cheats.

    ? We all know that King is in the business of making money. We all know the game is rigged to make you spend money (Lvl 65, Lvl 140, Dreamworld 101). We all have seen the owl “happen” to fall off for no reason on candy breaks, the needle slow down to a snail’s pace on the jackpot just to find that extra “momentum” to go to the next section on the wheel. I believe in a fair game not rigged for people to spend their hard earned money on it. Let me help everyone stick it to King and maybe a fair, reasonable game will happen. This is what you do……
    ? You just go into your phone setting… Scroll down and look for (Time and Date) Change your date 1 day head… Then go open Candy Crush, you will have 5 new lives. BUT do not play the game yet. Close Candy Crush, and go back to your setting and reset the date back to the original today’s date….Very Important!!!
    Then go back to Candy Crush and play the game. You can do this as many times per day as you like. Always open CC and make sure there’s 5 news lives… BUT ALWAYS remember to go back and reset the date BEFORE you play the game. IF you don’t the “minute ticker” on CC will turn in days, and weeks, and months, maybe longer. (YOU don’t want this to happen)
    ALWAYS reset your Time and date before you play CC……
    This can also be done on an iPad, Smart phones, and IPhones, and other small hand held computer devices. BUT not a P.C.

      Here’s a few extra tips that might help with Level 140.

      1) Use the lack of blockers to your advantage.
      2) Combos, combos, combos. Make as many as you can. Use the free daily booster wheel to your advantage too.
      3) Work low to get cascades.
