but I'm only on level 50! Wow 147? Do you use any of the boosters? So far I have refused to purchase any so I'm doing it on my own. Does there come a time where you have to purchase them in order to finish a level do you know? The game is so stinkin' addicting!

No boosters

So far, I haven't purchased any boosters. There was a time a few weeks ago when they were giving boosters away daily, but that was the only time that I've used them. Lots of luck to you!

Candy Crush

I've offered this "strategy" before to some friends and they say it does help. I will preface this by saying it doesn't always work, but it does help.

One of the things I like about candy crush is that you can play on your iPhone, iPad, and computer. I've noticed that when I'm stuck on a level, if I switch devices, I do better. Also, your lives don't transfer. So you get 5 brand new lives for your phone, then if you move to your iPad, you get 5 more lives. If you switch again to your computer, you get 5 more lives. This method gives you 15 loves instead of the regular 5.

was setting the time ahead on the phone to get more lives. Eventually not only did it mess up the text messaging function, the game "caught on" and he has to wait a million minutes.

It is addicting!

I have been on 147 for two weeks now and am so frustrated, I refuse to buy boosters as well. I do switch between iphone and facebook so far it only lets me get frustrated more often, ha ha. DH was stuck on it for a month and just beat it yesterday without boosters, so it is possible, he said it was just pour luck.

Candy Crush, Level 79, reminds me a lot of Dante's Inferno. Never-ending frustration. Can't make it out!

I feel your pain and frustration!
I have been stuck on level 65 for almost 2 months. Ridiculous! What is even more frustrating is when I just have ONE stupid jelly left and run out of moves.

I play on every device I have and it just adds to my frustration! It's like a revolving door of candy crush disappointment.

I had been stuck on level 135, but I updated the APP, and they changed the "order" for that level, so I was able to move on. Weird!!!!

I'm stuck there, too!! It's driving me nuts. It's been at least a month. I haven't ever bought any boosters, etc. One time I was one move away and I seriously considered buying the extra moves. I decided against it and a couple weeks later I am kicking myself. So frustrating!

Boosters

This game is all about luck. I've gotten extra moves before (gifted from friends) and used them, only to have the bomb explode before I ever went close to the regular number of moves. I'm currently on level 350, never bought anything, and just managed to do each level.

I have noticed that when I stopped caring, and was just playing for extra practice, things would start to fall into place. It's like the game is trying to annoy us!

Damn that level 147! I was on it for 5 1/2 weeks! I got so far and gave the phone to my bf to finish the level for me. He did and I FINALLY got to move on. He's so much better at the game than I am...

I passed level 110 and decided the frustration far exceeded the enjoyment so I stopped moving forward. However, the addiction still exists so I've gone back to the beginning to get 3 stars on each level

I'm on 199. Las Flores- you certain have jumped ahead! I swear, you were just in the low 200s last time we posted about this

I looked back at 147, I didn't like that level much Level 199 is frustrating, too. I got so close one, just one layer of jelly left on on block, but... alas...

JustDance- I haven't used any boosters ever for this game so far.

I have been doing the time clock thing on the phone since I started playing and never had a problem. I always switch it ahead one day, open the game, go back out and switch the time back to automatic and then open the game and play. If you do this a few times in a row, it'll tell you you have to wait for about 2-3 days worth of minutes, and I move it ahead 2-3 days or just wait for several hours (and do something productive instead ). At on point, I thought it was on to me (the game), but it really wasn't. It's all a pattern. How long had he been doing that? Did he always reset the clock immediately after opening the game (not playing it yet)?


ETA- I just opened it and tried 199 again and voila! I not only passed, I got 3 stars On to 200...

I did buy the sucker breaker. Its like a dollar and gives you three turns to smash that last jelly when it is impossible to get it otherwise. I figured it was worth it to finish with those impossible levels. I just made coffee home instead of going to starbucks one time to justify the cost. Yes its frustrating, yes its addictive. I agree, when I am just waiting in line, or between commercials when watching tv it is easier to win. I really love (and often hate) that they limit you to five lives, then make you go do something else. But ahhhh... those glorious words.....SUGAR CRUSH, and then all those sweedish fish!!! pure joy.

Gracekrispy I did jump ahead thanks to you and your clock tip. Good luck in the 200s. I just beat the level I was stuck in too. Maybe complaining on PT helps.

I just started playing about a week ago, but I'm stuck on 30. I was stuck on 23 for a day and got past that and now 30 is making me crazy! I'll never make it into the hundreds at this rate.

I haven't connected to Facebook and always just wait for my lives to regenerate.
