Level 70 of Candy Crush…

Level 70 of Candy Crush is the level that almost ended it all. Yes, I’m still playing the game. No, I don’t really want to talk about it.

Okay, I do want to talk about it. I want to talk about the hours I sat trying to get past level 70.  For those who haven’t reached it yet (those who are beyond it are probably laughing at me), it consists of two columns.  In the right column, there are two rows of chocolate being held back by four pieces of candy encased in licorice.  As long as you don’t break the licorice, the chocolate remains in place.  As soon as you break the licorice, you better be ready to make a lot of matches that smash the chocolate.

Candy Crush 70

The best way to clear this level is to make a striped candy out of four vertical pieces of candy.  You then move this candy (without using it) so it lines up with one of the chocolate levels.  You then form a three-way match, and it blasts across both columns, smashing the chocolate out.  You do this twice, and then you can break the licorice and go to town.

The first few times I played it, it was difficult, but I knew what to do, so no problem.  I just need to make those striped candies.  I kept getting close, leaving maybe three squares of jelly unpopped.  By the second day of level 70, I was getting massively frustrated.  I felt like my inability to pass this level was commentary on my intelligence.  Wasn’t this similar to a freakin’ GRE question — one of those ones where you had to predict how many moves or yadda yadda yadda.  It’s been a long time since I’ve taken the GRE, but this felt similar to the type of intelligence measured by the GRE.

I could not predict where the candies would land or set up moves; about 70% of the time, it was a total crap shoot.  Maybe 30% of the time, I could see a move or two ahead.  But even then, things would happen that I hadn’t predicted.  A candy I wasn’t watching would drop into place, causing everything to cascade, messing up my perfect shot.

I was being bested by a freakin’ game.  A GAME.  A game that my eight-year-olds play.  I couldn’t do it, and I started to phone it in, listlessly making whatever combination came up because why bother?  Concentrating hard wasn’t working; maybe randomly selecting combinations would work just as well.  I used up 10 lives that way.

And then, yesterday morning, I decided that I should walk away from the game because it was making me feel inadequate.  Other people had not only gotten past level 70, but they had gotten past all the other levels after that too.  They had probably sailed through level 70 in one try, whereas I had gone through over 50 lives.  I was at the point where I was thinking about rolling up my graduate degree and mailing it back to the university since I obviously didn’t deserve to keep it, and then deleting the app so I could release myself from Candy Crush’s tenacious grip.  But I had to wait for something, and while waiting, I played a round.

And passed.

When those words “sugar crush” came across the screen, I almost cried.  I wanted to take out an ad in our local newspaper and let all my neighbours know that I’m not a no-goodnik, unable to pass a double-digit Candy Crush level.  I passed level 70!  I am a productive member of society.  I can teach the twins third grade math.  I am SMART!

And then I remembered that this isn’t the Scripps Spelling Bee.  This is Candy Crush.  I have gotten myself this worked up over Candy Crush.

So I turned off my phone and returned to working.

[whispered: but secretly, I was smiling the whole day because I'm really really smart because I passed level 70 of Candy Crush!]

too funy…I feel exactly the same way…i’ve been stuck more than a week on 1 level…horrible…I’m on level 165 now and still completly addicted…

My husband just passed 70 two days ago, after several weeks of being stuck on it, and I caught him doing a little dance in his chair.

I keep reaching levels, and thinking they are the worst.lever.ever. And then I will finally pass them, only to get stuck a few levels later on the new worst.level.ever. I am currently sitting still at 149.

3 jodifur { 06.20.13 at 8:23 am }

I was stuck on 167 for a month. I was more excited about passing that last night than I was about passing the bar. I wish I was kidding.

Just so you know, you should probably be prepared to encounter this about every 6 or so levels. They are set up in gradients. Usually 1 or 2 before you need a train ticket are extremely difficult to get through. There is no strategic plan you can set up, because what falls is unpredictable. It’s about 95% chance, and 5% being able to recognize the play that’s there when you need it. I’m stuck on I don’t even know what level and I’ve been there about a week. But I can’t play on my phone, so I only play about 5 games a day.

5 Mina { 06.20.13 at 8:27 am }

Ha, everyone seems to be playing candy crysh these days. :-) I got to level 96 without buying or fb-ing anything. Because I do not have time to play it for a longer while, and I hate being a cow to be milked by the game makers. I have it both on phone and tablet, so when I do get time, I can play without buying lives or gimmicks.
I get stuck on a level for DAYS, and it annoys the crap out of me when I get a doughnut with sprinkles and no striped candy to swap it with, so that all the rest of the same coloured candies can turn into striped hard-working, candy wipers too. That makes my day when it happens. How pathetic, eh?!

6 Mary { 06.20.13 at 8:27 am }

Just wait until level 97. I may or may not have actually cried because I. Can. Not. Beat. This. F-ing. Level.

7 Heather { 06.20.13 at 8:36 am }

I’m on level 224, and I agree with the above commenter: there are really hard ones to get through in every ‘world’. That being said I think Candy Crush gives the hard levels to players after a certain time or point. Obviously their goal is to get you to buy add ons and upgrades. I don’t do this, and never will. However, if I’m stuck on a level for a couple weeks and take a break then play a couple rounds? I magically beat the level. There has to be some algorithm in there that calculates time played/time not played/buying of upgrades/etc. before the just give you the pieces you need.
I’m still playing because I have beat those hard levels. However, according to the game makers I’m increasing my chances to buy an upgrade. Which I never will but the game doesn’t know that… or do they…
:)

8 shelli { 06.20.13 at 9:37 am }

Some of the levels just make you want to walk away. I’m on level 273. Every “episode” seems to have that one level that drives you nuts. I have found, as a long term player, persistence is key. I really feel like once you get stuck on a level, the game just grants mercy on you and POOF! onto the next level.

9 Melanie { 06.20.13 at 9:38 am }

Hmmm, the comment above is interesting. It does seen that stepping away from what seems like its freakin impossible level and coming back does work a lot of times. And it’s magically easier and beaten in one try. I don’t want to believe that though! I did finally beat that level on my own darn it!! I remember 70, it was hard. Hate that chocolate. In stuck in 147 now and have been there at least a week.

10 Pepper { 06.20.13 at 9:59 am }

This post makes me laugh and also confirms for me that I cannot start this game. However, it reminds me of my recent accomplishment which was finishing my (albeit very short) run with my daughter in the jogging stroller. We moved to a hilly area (and by hilly I mean MOUNTAINOUS while running with a stroller). There was a short but steep hill that I had to walk every run. And it disgusted me. My internal dialog was not “Go you! You’re out running with your toddler! Keep it up!” It was “You loser. You can’t even run this short distance without walking? You might as well just quit.” And then last week, I did it. And celebrated this tiny victory for the rest of the night.

So although I don’t play Candy Crush, I get it. I really get it.

11 Sarah { 06.20.13 at 11:00 am }

LONG-time reader (secondary “infertility” by husband’s decree – whole ‘nother room for the blogroll), first-time commenter. I wanted to comment on your previous post on your refusal to buy up to Level 36 – I’m still holding out, but when I reach 35, I start over at Level 1 and only let myself “pass” a level when I beat my previous high score (surprisingly difficult! but nice to fall asleep to, because you never run out of lives). But this is the post that brought me out of lurkdom (Candy Crush! For the love! Not years upon years of emotional turmoil, but a game that my FOUR-year-old plays). Your thoughts on the game sooooo completely mirror mine, it’s uncanny. Hilarious, even. And I was never any good at those questions on the GRE, either. Just wanted to say thanks for articulating that. And of course for the years and years and years of anonymous emotional support too. You know.

12 Rachelle { 06.20.13 at 12:17 pm }

Level 65 was that way for me. I called it the devil level. I keep playing because I am addicted!

13 Tiara { 06.20.13 at 1:46 pm }

It amazes me how many people are involved with this game! Very happy for you for passing this level…tho I knew you were really really smart before this ;)

14 Alicia { 06.20.13 at 1:46 pm }

You are hilarious.

15 Elana Kahn { 06.20.13 at 1:48 pm }

That was like level 65 for me. DAYS of trying to pass that one. 70 didn’t give me as much trouble – I must have gotten lucky. But ohhh lordy level 65…

16 Kimberly { 06.20.13 at 1:54 pm }

My husband no longer questions me when I promptly do a fist pump and yell at my phone or iPad “TAKE THAT YOU STUPID GAME”.

And I’m not laughing, but I am curious to see how you will be when you hit some of the levels I took weeks to pass. I’m currently losing my mind over level 361. When I’m not playing, I’m thinking about how long it takes for the lives to regenerate and when I can play again. I’ve never been hooked on a game like this before.

17 Karen Sanders { 06.20.13 at 2:42 pm }

I am on 167. I always pass the sticklers when I’ve figuratively thrown up my hands. Way to go!

18 Stimey { 06.20.13 at 2:48 pm }

I was stuck on level 135 for weeks. Literally weeks. And I was all, “That’s it! I’m done with this game!” and then I couldn’t leave it. When I was playing the game in which I saw that I was, like, 3 moves away from winning and I had plenty of moves left, my heart lifted in a way that was almost indescribable. Now I’m busy hating level 165. Stupid Candy Crush.

19 Kay phelps { 06.21.13 at 12:44 pm }

I am totally stuck on level70. This maybe the end for me!

20 Kay phelps { 06.21.13 at 12:45 pm }

Done

21 Battynurse { 06.21.13 at 2:16 pm }

Lol! I’ve had games like this. Heck, my desk top has a solitaire game that is nearly impossible to beat which I can play for hours.

22 Rebecca { 06.21.13 at 3:32 pm }

I just started playing candy crush last week. Level 50. You are now scaring me with what I’m going to have to deal with!

23 graeme { 06.24.13 at 7:23 am }

of course they know when you are “fed-up”. and you are quite right not to pay.It’s a game……

24 JustHeather { 06.24.13 at 3:31 pm }

LOL. I know this feeling! I am sure I used way more than 50 lives to get past a couple of the levels on Candy Crush. I think the hardest for me was somewhere in the 90’s…I was on that level for at least a week! have fun.

25 KimmieD { 06.25.13 at 1:09 pm }

OMG….. I too feel so dang inadequate as well… over a freaking game… I’ve tried and cried and cried and tried! lol… just joking about the cried but seriously… Level 70 is going to be my demise! I’ve searched for help high and low but to no avail! {{sigh}}.. guess I’ll struggle on… till I pass because I keep failing and that’s not an option! What do I do.. oh what do I do.. :-(

26 51sebastian { 06.30.13 at 4:38 am }

Finally. After 50 odd lives, I did it. And I thought level 65 was difficult. well both are.

27 Lydia { 06.30.13 at 11:03 am }

OMG, I feel so stupid, it feels like an IQ test.

28 Greg { 07.03.13 at 2:14 am }

After mostly coasting through levels up to somewhere around 100, I decided to go back in order to get three stars on each. Then came level 70. I think I’m going on about two weeks. High score…149520. I was devasted watching those dam fish then the explosions and then… “he…could…go…all…the…way….”. Rejected. That one had to be a conspiracy.

29 Danny { 07.08.13 at 12:51 am }

omg this game should be called candy crack ! if im not playing it im thinking about playing it … I’m really thinking i might need an intervention soon lol with all my friends being enablers sending me lives geezzee lol

30 Amber { 07.08.13 at 1:58 pm }

I hate that chocolate, but I’ve found the time bombs to be even worse!

31 May ProblemUterus { 07.08.13 at 8:35 pm }

OMFG LEVEL 28!

32 Elizabeth { 07.09.13 at 11:01 am }

I just spent 16 days on Level 65 – I finally beat it on Sunday. I blew through levels 66-69, however; since yesterday I have been stuck on Level 70. It’s kind of funny that we both had the same thought that Level 70 could be what kills this game for us.

33 Lisa { 07.09.13 at 11:43 am }

70….I hate the chocolate. This may be the death of me!

34 Anne Marie { 07.13.13 at 8:56 pm }

Lol, this forum is killing me with laughter, lol 65 was definitely a bummer but 70 had me chuck my fone at the wall this morning….time to step away from the game for a couple days!

35 Havelock { 07.18.13 at 6:01 am }

Level 70 has been driving me crazy over the last few days. And there seems to be no end in sight. The game makers are smart enough to give a level or two that are easy to keep drawing you in, till you’re lost in candy crush world!

36 Kristina { 07.22.13 at 1:34 pm }

I am in graduate school and I am stuck on this darn level….ARGH!!! I feel as though my intelligence is being tested as well…when I beat it, (and I will) I will definitely do a happy dance

37 AnnMarie { 07.22.13 at 10:46 pm }

Stuck on level 70 after sailing thru 66-69 like many above.
The entire right hand side of the board gets completely covered in the chocolate and i want to cry. My husband thinks I am crazy but then again he is only in level 28! I try to set things up but plain and simple it seems like this level is pure luck in what falls and that is all! Sigh.

38 Pundelina { 07.24.13 at 4:27 am }

Haha, I was thinking about one of your other CC posts yesterday while level 70 whipped me. And now today, I googled candy crush level 70 and look whose blogpost pops up high in the search results! LOL I am ready to delete the bloody game – This is an awful level! But reading all the comments tells me that it is possible :)

39 Kim { 07.26.13 at 9:45 pm }

OMG I had to laugh at all the posts. I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one. I HATE this game. But I can’t quit. Thanks for the encouragement. I WILL pass level 70! Now if I could just get some work done.

40 becky { 07.28.13 at 6:44 pm }

Candy Crush is evil… this is how they get us addicted to this mess. Make these level so insanely hard that we are seconds away from insanity. Then poof out of nowhere its says sugar crush… on to the next mine blowing level…..

41 Level_Bloody_70 { 07.29.13 at 6:38 am }

I know the game is deliberately designed to get people to buy power ups…but this level really hammers it home. No way of doing this level by using skill. Just shitloads of luck AND skill

42 Level_Bloody_70 { 07.29.13 at 6:40 am }

Yesterday (it was about my 50th attempt..I got down to needing just a single jelly and still had 12 moives left..but of course the game is about as random as an online casino….

43 Level_Bloody_70 { 07.29.13 at 6:54 am }

..there go another 5 attempts…. ARGRGHGHRHGRH

44 Gaye { 07.30.13 at 11:44 pm }

Thanks for the awesome tip – solved it within 5 games, after being stuck for days!

45 Rose { 07.31.13 at 6:51 pm }

I thought level 65 was the worst and now that I have gotten to level 70, it is 100 times worse. I cannot see getting past this level.

46 Renee { 08.04.13 at 12:21 am }

Got to 70 with a lot of aggravation, especially on 65, where unlike the rest of you I bought many lives. (Rationalized it by not buying coffees and less eating out-not.) I yelled at my niece cause she told me about this stupid game. I don’t understand everything and asked her why I had to buy lives to get into new lands or whatever they are called. She told me about the quests. Anyway, I tried 70 twice and didnt get it. Came to this site laughed and thought I’d finish out my lives and delete the game. Went back to 70 and won not even knowing whether to to the right side or left. No real moral, just like the game. A waste of time and purposeless . I will keep on playing without buying lives and delete it when I stuck (probably not.) Maybe the game knew I was getting ready to delete and gave me 70. Ugh

50 Cindy { 08.08.13 at 12:19 am }

Just got stuck on 70 after being stuck on 65 for a week. Love all the comments, I giggled quietly in bed as hubby is sleeping and doesn’t understand why I play this game……in bed…….while the kids are sleeping…….. Anyhow, does everybody know that if you are playing on an iPad you can get your next 5 lives by setting your time setting ahead a couple of hours or a day? I go into the game, get the five lives and then go back and set the time to the correct time. I’ve been playing this way for weeks. Relieves the stress a lot as I know I have as many lives as I want.

51 manicmarie { 08.12.13 at 9:07 am }

oh my goddness…level 70 is like a nightmare…why oh why must it be this way? i know what im going to do. im going to curse this game and delete the ap…oh i cant do it …i cant let it beat me . i feel like a overgrown fool my hair is standing on my head…because ive pulled at it so much
..will candy crush be the death of me?

52 Jules { 08.12.13 at 1:41 pm }

I was on level 65 for five weeks…. FIVE FREAKING WEEKS!!! I finally passed it this weekend and had tears! Now I am on 70 and MAD!!!!

53 Tracy { 08.12.13 at 11:46 pm }

what is it with level 70? Just when I thought I had passed the worst levels….they all seem so easy compared to level 70. It’s going to drive me absolutely crazy!!! I am 40 years old, a wife, mom, business owner. I can honestly say I have NEVER been addicted to video games…on line games….any games. But Candy Crush has a hold on me!!! What is it? It’s not like there’s any end in sight. It’s not like there’s any money waiting for me. Why is this game so addicting? I can’t figure it out, but I think about it day and night!

54 Maz { 08.13.13 at 7:09 am }

I can not do level 70. I have tried everything, and am now talking to myself about what will win this level. It really is driving me mad I just have to do it as not being able to do it is harming my my self esteem. Help. Been trying for three weeks i’m ashamed to say.

55 Allen { 08.14.13 at 2:39 pm }

When I first started playing this game, I passed most of the levels easily…. until I got to level 70. I have been stuck on this god forsaken level for about a week, and I am almost to the point of quitting this stupid game. I heard a lot of people say level 65 was hard, but I got lucky and passed it on my first try. Level 70 though, might be the death of this game for me.

56 Monkey's Momma { 08.15.13 at 11:49 am }

I understand completely.

I’m stuck on 70 now, but I had this problem at level 65. I got so frustrated at level 65 I had deleted the app… after a week of withdrawal, I re-installed the app and started ALL OVER.

So here I am, at level 70 and it looks like a level 65 all over again. I was stuck there for weeks. BOTH times. Now I’ve been stuck on 70 for almost a week.

Instead of doing what I’m supposed to do, like help the kids and work, I’m sitting at the dinner table playing Candy Crush. My one kid think I have issues (; the other plays it as well. I seriously think I have a problem.

57 Candy Crusher { 08.17.13 at 12:31 am }

The chocolate knows my thoughts and is following me!

58 Linda { 08.19.13 at 10:39 pm }

I snickered while reading this. I felt such relief at not being the only adult in the world who has felt the repeated crushing defeat of a Candy Crush level. I shall beat you, too, notorious Level 70! I shall indeed!

59 karry { 08.24.13 at 1:09 am }

Level 70 :( …. wsh me luck

60 Beth { 08.24.13 at 10:25 pm }

Thank you for understanding! I feel like a complete idiot for not being able to get past this blasted level 70. I have a college degree. I was a buyer for a very large retail company., in charge of a department worth millions, but I actually SCREAM at my iPad. This is nuts! Thank you for the hint. I’m going to go back to the game now so i can waste another 5 lives, 25 lives from Facebook friends, lose 3 hours of sleep I will never get back, and apply more under eye makeup to cover my dark circles…

61 karry { 08.25.13 at 2:27 am }

Finallyyyy on level 71

62 Chris { 08.25.13 at 3:36 pm }

I thought level 29 was bad but level 70 OMG, been stuck on this for at least 4 weeks, it’s driving me nuts, I’m just waiting for the men in white coats to knock on the door!!!!!

63 ADENA FORREN { 08.31.13 at 10:50 pm }

I can’t get past 70 and I now have my husband that never plays games addicted to Candy Crush and we have been stuck for weeks. We play on the tablet until we are out of lives,then move to the phone and then onto the laptop and still can’t beat it. Each device has lives when the other one runs out. My 29 year old daughter and her husband has joined in to beat this level and we all are going crazy lol

64 Ronnie G { 09.02.13 at 8:36 am }

It feels so good to know that I am not alone in my quest for Sugar Crush greatness; not to mention the smile and laugh that each of these posts has put on my face! But I wanted to quickly give a story of success as encouragement: I have been stuck on Level 70 for 2 weeks now, and just took a break to see if there were some tips online, and came across this site. After going back to my game, literally 3 minutes ago, I passed Level 70!! No rhyme or reason, after 3 weeks! I scared both my husband and my dog with my shouts of happiness! It can be done folks, just hang in there!

65 Mac { 09.02.13 at 12:23 pm }

Jodiqir: Your comment made my day. Still laughing :-) :-)

66 Mac { 09.02.13 at 12:25 pm }

Jodifur: Sorry, spelled your name wrong :-(

67 Laney { 09.03.13 at 2:18 am }

I though some other levels were hard, but 70 is the worst! Common sense says “they”want me to spend money and if I do not they will taunt me until I do. So far, not a cent. Also added it to facebook, then uninstalled the ap, then reinstalled the ap without FB attached. I am a solo player, refusing to spend money, and telling myself I can’t be addicted because I only do it until I run out of lives. I don’t mess with the time on my Ipad to get more lives. I am a good person. I run a business. A successful business. I can’t addicted. ….sigh…. Then why am I online trying to find some way to beat this level? 12 step program anyone?

68 Laney { 09.03.13 at 2:20 am }

PS Sometimes when I close my eyes I see falling candy. :-(

69 rjejr { 09.05.13 at 1:00 pm }

Yeah, level 70 might be the end. I cruised thru the first 69 w/ 3 stars on most and the top spot among my friends on a lot, most on the first try, but level 70 isn’t even fun, and I’ve only been trying for 2 days. I’ve gotten to a few jellies once or twice, but again, not really fun.

70 rjejr { 09.05.13 at 1:08 pm }

Thank you for your magical website, just went and beat level 70 on my first try (1st now, about 30th overall) and got 125k and came in 2nd among my friends. Excelsior!

71 Rubygirl55 { 09.08.13 at 8:51 pm }

So VERY glad to know that I am not alone on Level 70. I’ll just keep burning lives until I succeed…lol.

72 Sandy { 09.11.13 at 10:50 am }

Thank you!! Thank you for your graduate degree brain!! I couldn’t get the strategy until I read this and level 70 was dust under my feet in 4 tries!! After I don’t even want to admit how many lives. happy dancing!!

I know exactly what ur talking about i’m begining to feel realy stupid but u have given me jope

75 patty { 09.18.13 at 2:39 pm }

I was stuck on 65 for weeks too! I took the advise online for the way to beat it and it worked the first time! I am now on the dreaded level 70. Got close a couple of times with only one jelly left but I will not pay for addition moves to play, so I will continue to fight! I never thought I would get this addicted to a game! I thought people who do this are crazy! Now I am one of those crazy people! LOL

76 gailo { 09.19.13 at 7:43 am }

There is a definite pattern: 65 was awful but 70 is worse! I’m just not enjoying level 70. At least with 65 I was totally addicted spending hours on it compulsively, but I think it’s worn me out. It feels like no matter how many levels you get through there’s more and more and they are even programming even more so what’s the point? No doubt I’ll likely keep playing but with 70, I get disengaged after each game, don’t even use up the 5 lives.

So glad to find this site and to know I am not the only one addicted to this game. I am also stuck on level 70. Totally frustrated. It’s almost midnight and I am out of lives now. I have spent hours on this level and just can’t get past it. It is driving me crazy, but I keep going back to play it. I need an intervention…..seriously!

78 Teena { 10.06.13 at 1:14 am }

I felt like that for level 65 . Had been on it since a little before I turned the same age in March! Well last week one of my twin granddaughters was playing with it on a different level and when I got home and I’m playing on an iPad I decided to also give it a try again and voile’ I passed! Felt the same way as you did. YES!!!!!! The next few went not badly unti legis darn 70. I still don’t understand and I’ve seen a video on it, read this on this site and will read it again, I think. Nerve wracking.

79 Sugarcrush { 10.06.13 at 11:43 pm }

I too fought with level 70 and survived. Chocolate is one of my favorite things in the universe, except in this game…I hate it! If people think 65, 70 and 147 are tough levels to get through, wait till you get to 423…you’ll be tearing your hair out, lol!

80 Cindy { 10.09.13 at 5:59 am }

I cannot stand the color brown any longer because of those chocolates. I tossed an old fleece top away yesterday because it is brown. I’m ready to quit CC because of level 70. It’s so random and those stupid, stupid chocolates fill up quickly like a raging river going downstream.

81 Cindy { 10.09.13 at 6:01 am }

After writing my comment I read Sugarcrush’s comment about “hating chocolate” perhaps this game is an overweight chocoholics dream. It turns you right off of the stuff.

82 kev { 10.12.13 at 10:02 am }

I for one am not going to pay for any special candies, and after all its just a game. I’ve wasted a few days on here and will find another game to pass the time, there are plenty of FB to choose from

83 Carolyn { 10.12.13 at 1:43 pm }

Please dear God’s of Candy Crush shine down on my crush fantasy and get me past level 70. Or the winning lotto numbers will satisfy me as well. Thanks

84 Helen { 10.14.13 at 10:25 am }

I am 78 and doubt I live long enough to complete level 70!!!!!!

85 Supercharlymax { 10.22.13 at 10:20 am }

Stuck on level 27618: HELP!!!!

86 Nick { 11.05.13 at 8:37 am }

I have come to the conclusion that level 70 is in fact impossible.

Anyone that says they have beaten level 70 and have moved on to level 239 or whatever are in fact employees of the company that invented the game and their sole purpose is to convince others to keep playing

Level 70 is in fact the end of the game

I would like to thank the makers of this wonderful game for the fun that I have had but now it is off to play something else now that I know I have completed all possible levels of Candy Crush

Have a great day.

87 niki { 11.08.13 at 1:38 pm }

I just finished level 410 (yes i’m bragging, yes i’m addicted, no i will not stop playing until I run out of lives!) They are right every stage has one super hard level. After being stuck on 410 for 2MONTHS! I discovered that the computer version is different from the app version and was sooo much easier!i finished it in 2 tries! I also had numerous boosters you dont get in the app!so if you play on ur phone and are stuck try the computer!now will someone please send me tickets?

88 Angela { 11.11.13 at 3:43 pm }

It took me weeks to solve level 70. This after weeks of frustration and swearing to never play again. I finally solved the problem, don’t ask me how, and was so happy and relieved. However, after upgrading my phone on Saturday toy horror I have been tank back to level 70

89 Loretta { 11.12.13 at 1:26 pm }

Level 70 was horrible. I mean just down right horrible. Come Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013, I prayed and asked God to help me pass this level. After 2 tries I DID!!! Thank you Lord!!! Now I’m up to 79 but am scared of 147 as so many have posted above. I thought I needed help for my addition to this game, but once I realized that I’m not the only one..I guess I’ll keep on playing!!

90 gus { 11.20.13 at 3:06 pm }

After level 70 I have uninstalled Candy Chrush. Good riddance..

91 Marsha { 11.26.13 at 7:18 pm }

I feel like an idiot because of level 70. This game is freaking hard! I’ve read the tips & can hardly get stripped candies let alone get a multi colored ball. If I see 3 matching candies on the right, it doesn’t pay to touch it because it goes no where & the chocolates overtake everything. It’s been about 10 days & I’m still trying.

92 Dianna { 11.26.13 at 11:40 pm }

I’m so glad I’m not the only one out there with a problem with level 70. It’s been 2 weeks now with my frustration increasing daily. I have found some help for the frustration since I seem to blow through 5 live so quickly. I only play right before I go to bed sink don’t have to sit here like an idiot waiting for a new life. Good luck to all if you stuck out there.

93 swetakiranpatnaik { 12.04.13 at 2:51 pm }

am stuck in 70th level frm past two weeks..:(..mah frnds r makng fun f me…i failed whole day sit nd play bt am nt able to cross…saw all videos bt its f no use…all mah strategies r jst worthless..what to do?:(..;(

94 Nicole { 12.06.13 at 9:59 pm }

I hate level 70. Love your post.

95 Lesley { 12.23.13 at 2:20 pm }

I’m currently stuck on that ^%$&*(#(!) Level 70. I’m glad that I’m not the only one stuck on it! I can’t even tell you how many lives I’ve wasted on it and I refuse to spend money on this game so here I am trying to fight it with no booster power at all.

I will conquer it, darn it even if it is out of sheer stubbornness!! I’d try again right now, but sadly I’m out of lives for the moment!

96 Don { 12.30.13 at 1:20 am }

Dianna, 2 weeks/ I’m frustrated afetr only 3 days. I’ve read all the hints, matching 4 verticals on the left to get horizontally striped candies, and using these to blast the chocolate before starting with the licorice. This has worked a few times, but still always 2 or 3 left. Think I might have come within 1 once. A few more days, then it’s goodbye CandyCrush (yeah, sure, you’ll never give up….. NEVER!)

97 Uchu { 01.08.14 at 7:35 pm }

Yes, I #!@!@ hate level 70. It has cost me hours of pain and suffering, possibly hypertension, and a pair of computer speakers (I yanked and rip the wires out of them in a fit of rage because of the stupid music mocking my failure) .

98 Leese { 01.11.14 at 2:00 am }

Googled level 70 to get some relief from the ENORMOUS mental pain this level has been giving me, and in the time it took to read all the wonderfully therapeutic comments here, I now have another life. Thank you everybody :)

99 Kichi { 01.20.14 at 6:21 am }

Can you pass through the various levels without asking others for lives?

100 Jake Cake { 01.22.14 at 1:41 pm }

I’ve been telling this to everyone that can’t beat level 70. Take the chocolate out before you break the X’s (licorice). Then it won’t spread, from there on, its not very complicated.

101 Ed { 01.27.14 at 9:28 pm }

Finished level 455 and they gave me level 70 for a quest. Have beat it numerous times, but can’t get 2stars worth of points! Very frustrating

102 Chris { 02.09.14 at 11:14 am }

I can top all that. I’ve been stuck at level 70 since at least September.c a not beat it – no matter what. I refuse to buy any extra moves or upgrades. I am about the delete the game at this point. It’s much cheaper than throwing my iPad across the room and hiring a hitman to take these developers out for being such assholes. They really ought to re-do the algorithm after so long at a particular level to make it easier if you get stuck!

103 Cindy Mathes { 02.21.14 at 12:12 am }

I made need meetings. When you are actually Googling to find out how to be a candy game, you might have a problem. However I am feeling a little better now that I realize I am not alone
I refuse to link my game to Facebook and I refuse to pay money for any help. I have hope after 2 weeks of playing this level 70 and still no closer. I know the strategy, however there is no accounting for the luck required. I hope that I beat this level before I through my tablet across the yard.

104 Cindy Mathes { 02.21.14 at 12:14 am }

Also…I promise I spell better than it appears..stupid auto correct.

105 Nunya Bizzness { 03.08.14 at 10:39 pm }

I’ve been on level 70 for DAYS. I don’t deserve to breathe the same air as yall Candy Crushers who’ve passed it. I’m a poor excuse for a human being. DAMN YOU CANDY CRUSH. After each failed attempt at this level I keep saying to myself, “If I don’t beat it this time I’m deleting this God-forsaken app!” But it’s just idle chat. I don’t have the nerve to mash the delete button. Maybe I’ll update this post whenever I pass it and I’ll buy a round of drinks.

106 Nunya Bizzness { 03.08.14 at 10:48 pm }

@Cindy Mathes – I hear ya loud and clear, hon. Each time I see the dreaded words “You have no moves left”, and NOT “Sugar Crush”, I really wanna beat my Kindle Fire HD with a sledge hammer. I used to wanna fling it into my swimming pool, but beating it into a million pieces kills two birds with one stone: 1) I get to release my pinned up anger; and 2) No more Candy Crush! I’d actually be a human being again and wash my hair.
My God…listen to me. I sound like a raving psycopath. What has Candy Crush done to me??

107 CityMom { 03.09.14 at 6:54 am }

Thank you for the above tips! After a week of “@&$# you candy crush!”
I took the advice to not play as often. First I let hours lapse between games and noticed I was getting better moves and closer to success. Finally, I left it for an entire day. I ignore the cheery notifications luring me back and the let CC wonder if they’d perhaps gone too far – lost another player to level 70. What do you know…this morning I achieved that elusive sugar crush on the second try! I believe this is the best strategy – you’ve got to make the program think you’ve quit :). As Lon as you’re still playing, there’s the possibility of you spending $…although, like you, I refuse to spend a dime for a sugar crush! Now that spring is finally here, I am looking forward to more outdoor activities and less CC!

108 Linda { 05.09.14 at 5:55 pm }

I am addicted, however, I have tried level 70 too any times. It’s impossible. Think it’s fixed. Wasting too much time on this. Gotta stop. I’ll return to it in a few days and see what happens. I will,not spend money on this game or any others. I. Hear mr.king is a multimillionaire.
