Candy Crush Level 144 Tips & Strategy: How Did I Beat This Level?

Candy Crush level 144 is no easy task. It’s good you made it here, however, be ready for a challenge. I spent probably more lives than I should have trying to beat and subsequently perfect the strategy for this level, all for you ReadyGamers.

The early portion of this board is the most difficult. You only need to score big points for this one, but keep your eye on those time bombs. All too many times I would let a time bomb tick down one move too many and I’d be kicking and screaming for the next ten minutes. Lets just say I take my candy crushing a little too seriously sometimes.

  • Objective: Score 75,000 points
  • Moves: 45
  • Stars: 1 star = 75,000, 2 stars = 125,000, 3 stars = 140,000

Hint #1


You will likely only have moves available in the center area of the board. The problem is the time bombs trapped between two columns of meringue. Your first priority should be looking for any matches which can open up the meringue and give you a shot at defusing those bombs. If you cannot find matches, try to make a chocolate ball or a horizontally striped candy to remove these threats.

Hint #2

Once the first two bombs are removed, the rest of this Candy Crush Saga map is much easier. At this point you can focus on clearing the remaining meringue, this will give you more space to work with to create special candies. Be sure to hang on to some of these, however, as time bombs will be dropping in from time to time and a special candy can make all the difference in removing them.

Hint #3

Remember, clearing the meringues will give you more room to work with; however, this is a timed level and they do not have to be removed. Don’t spend moves trying to clear a stubborn piece when you could be scoring more points elsewhere. Be sure to watch the time bombs until the end. If a bomb reaches 0 on your final move, you will still lose and be forced to start over.


That’s all there is to it. If you manage to remove the initial bomb threat and keep watch over any future bombs, you should have no problem reaching the required score.

The next toughest level you’ll face comes a few levels later, the difficult 147. Now, get out there and crush those candies!
