Voted as one of the hardest levels in Candy Crush Saga, level 500 might leave you stuck for days. At first, it might look like the normal jelly level, with a huge board covered in jellies and thick meringue obstacles. But what really serve as the bummer here are the bombs, which can appear on your board if you are not careful.
I spent a lot of time trying to get past this level, and I must say that it was not an easy task. There are several tips that might help you get through the level, but every game is different for everyone. You never really know what the board has in store for you, so you’ll also be relying on a lucky board to get half the work done.
- Objective: Clear all the jellies and score at least 145,000 points.
- Moves: 60
- Stars: 1 star = 145,000 points; 2 stars = 300,000 points; 3 stars = 380,000 points
Even the meringues have jellies underneath them, so instead of making petty matches on the top of the board, start working near the meringue blockers. This way, you are also taking advantage of the cascade effect while also trying to destroy the blockers and expose the jellies. Do not worry too much about destroying the jellies on the upper part of the board, since a lot of them will be destroyed by cascades anyway.

You will notice that there are two bomb generators located on the left and right sides of the board. As much as possible, avoid hitting the candies directly below them because that will prompt the generators to dump a candy bomb on the board. And because of the bomb’s location, I am 99% sure that your game will end prematurely.
You cannot totally avoid the bomb generators, but at least avoid them during the start of the game. Once you have cleared enough of the meringues and there are only a few jellies left on the board, it will already be easier for you to deal with those candy bombs.

Huge and powerful combos are essential in winning this level, especially with the sheer number of jellies present on the board. The best combos to use in this level are striped plus wrapped candies, striped candy plus color bomb, and two wrapped candies. It is best to use them in the middle of the game so as not to upset the candy bombs.
After finishing level 350, you would feel as if you could conquer anything as you move through the next Candy Crush episode, Fudge Islands. But get ready to flex your strategy muscles again as you face the dreaded ingredients level of Candy Crush Saga level 361.
