Candy Crush Level 342 Tips & Strategy: How I Beat This Level?

Getting through this level is largely based on luck because there is no possible match that can help you reach those isolated jellies located behind the multi-layered meringues. The jelly fish will certainly help, but you have to be very strategic in activating them if you want to win this level.

I struggled through this Candy Crush Saga round because all the matches I made seemed futile in removing hard-to-reach jellies. Even combos did not seem to help. But after several attempts, knowing the right strategy certainly paid off in the end. Here are some of the tips that I learned in playing this level over and over again.

Quick Guide

Tip #1 – Get rid of the visible jellies first.
Tip #2 – Combine jelly fish with color bomb.
Tip #3 – Use combos with caution.

Tip #1

candy-crush-level-342-450x263-8713057 Before you torture yourself in getting rid of the hard-to-reach jellies, focus your attention on the jellies that are available before you. There are three double-layered jellies hidden behind the locked candies at the top of the board, so unlock those candies first and remove those jellies. There are also two other exposed jellies on the first row of jelly fish, so clear them when the opportunity to make matches arises.

Tip #2


The jelly fish are there to help you clear the most critical jellies, but they won’t be able to do that if you still have exposed jellies that they might clear first. Make it a point that before you activate any jelly fish, the only jellies left are the ones behind the meringues.

The problem is that the jelly fish may be too few in order to remove all the isolated jellies. Hence, it is best to combine it with a color bomb to multiply the jelly fish and target more jellies.

Tip #3


I know that I always advise you to use combos, but this time it’s different. Be very cautious in using combos especially during the beginning of the game, since you might accidentally activate the jelly fish even when you still have exposed jellies. Combining a striped and wrapped candy may look irresistible, but remember that every jelly fish wasted will take you further away from clearing all the jellies and advancing to the next round.

Sounds harsh? Wait until you finish this level and reach Candy Crush level 347, where all you have to do is to make difficult special candies, like color bombs and wrapped candies.
