Candy Crush Level 197 Tips & Strategy: How I Beat This Level?

You’ve arrived at Candy Crush level 197. Jelly has managed to creep into this map, too. I’m going to need you to get out there and take care of the jellies as quickly as possible. I hope you’re up for the task!

Meringues are blocking access to the section of the board with the jelly. Fortunately, there are wrapped candies that can be used to break through a large portion of this barrier. Unfortunately, they are located under marmalade. I have devised a Candy Crush strategy that will free these candies and lead you on a path to victory.

Quick Guide

Tip #1 – Use the wrapped candies.
Tip #2 – Focus on the lower section of the map.
Tip #3 – Use special candies.

  • Objective: Clear all the jelly and score 80,000 points
  • Moves: 50
  • Stars: 1 star = 80,000, 2 stars = 120,000, 3 stars = 150,000

Tip #1


You’re not going to be getting near the jelly without first clearing the meringue barrier. This barrier is thick and you don’t have moves to waste trying to break it on your own. You should spend your initial moves making vertically striped candies that can break the marmalade holding the wrapped candies.

Try to position the striped candy in the column with wrapped candies closest to the center. Once the marmalade is broken, combine the wrapped candies together. This will create an explosion that will remove most of the meringue.

Tip #2


Once the lower section of the board is accessible, be sure to make most of your moves in this area. Obviously your goal is to clear the jelly. As such, it wouldn’t do you much good to be making moves in the upper half of the board. Of course, you should keep an eye out for any special candies you can make. They are often worth using a move to create them!

Tip #3


Be sure to use special candy combinations to make your task easier. A striped and wrapped candy combination can do wonders when positioned correctly. Of course, a chocolate ball combined with a striped candy can work wonders, too. It’s all about considering what combination will have the biggest impact in your current situation!

That’s all there is to it. You should be great at creating striped candies by this stage. And once the lower section of the map is opened, things are quite simple. I hope to see you on the next map (which is a bit easier), and then later on to your last tough challenge on Candy Crush level 199 before you hit the 200’s.
