From the guide: “The first time I completed this level I scored 120,000 points. This time I only scored 50,000 which was just enough to move to the next level. The best way to complete this level is to focus on getting 4 and 5 identical candies so you can get the color bomb and the vertical striped candies. Use the color bombs on the striped candies and it will help you clear the jelly row.”
Level 77 of Candy Crush saga can be quite a wake-up call for beginners. Players must clear all of the jelly and reach 50,000 points in a mere 25 moves to beat the level. However, all of the jelly is contained in a thin central section that is not connected to the rest of the board and that also contains chocolate which will spread each turn that it is not cleared.. This forces players to think creatively in an effort to indirectly clear the jelly with special candies within the time limit.
Prioritize vertical striped candies. The major difficulty in this level is that the spaces you have the most control over — the ones at the top and bottom — aren’t the ones that you have jelly in them. Since the middle section isn’t connected to the rest of the board, use the top and bottom of the board to your advantage by making vertical striped candies whenever you get the chance.
Use wrapped/striped combos to hit the middle section. Combinations of wrapped and striped candies are your most useful assets on this stage. These combos clear three rows and three columns in a large “cross” pattern, which means that they can hit three jelly spaces in the middle at a time. Unfortunately, it can take several moves to set up a wrapped/striped combo, so don’t waste moves going for these if you’re running short on time.
If you can, focus on the chocolate first. The chocolate that starts at the right side of the middle section is your number one enemy in this level. If you don’t deal with it as soon as it starts spreading, it can quickly devour the whole middle section, making it very difficult to beat the level. For this reason, it’s best to clear the chocolate with a few vertical striped candies or a wrapped/striped combo as soon as you can.
Don’t forget to look for combinations in the middle section. While it’s good to look for vertical striped candies and wrapped/striped combos on the top and bottom of the board, don’t forget that you’ll sometimes get combos in the middle section of the board as well. In fact, in terms of moving you towards your goal, getting a single horizontal three-in-a-row in the middle is just as valuable as a wrapped/striped combo (and uses less moves to execute!) Thus, you’ll always want to give the middle a quick glance at the start of your turn to see if there are any good moves before moving on to the outer sections.
Use color bombs if many jelly squares are the same color. Color bombs — formed by getting five candies of the same color in a row — can be useful in certain situations, but aren’t essential, so think before making them. If you see that you can form a color bomb in one turn and use it to clear a color that appears in the middle row often on the next turn, it’s probably worth it.
Don’t use wrapped candies except for striped/wrapped combos. On their own, wrapped candies are useless in this level — their explosion range isn’t big enough to affect the middle section where the jelly and chocolate are. Thus, you won’t want to waste moves making them unless you plan to use them in a wrapped/striped combo or use them to trigger a vertical striped candy.
This means that you shouldn’t break the locked square before you’re ready to clear the chocolate. You can clear jelly on the left and you should clear the chocolate on the right before you hit the lock, but once the lock is broken, you need to be ready to clear the chocolate right away or you may find yourself in a very difficult situation.
The tips in this section don’t have to do with playing the game itself, but aren’t generally considered cheating. Feel free to ignore this section if you wish — your gameplay experience won’t be effected.
Reset the stage until you get a good layout. This trick works for the mobile version of the game, not the browser version. If you start the level and you don’t see any good moves, stop. Before you make any moves, hit the “back” button on your phone, and, if prompted about whether you truly want to exit, tap “yes.” You should be back on the map screen. Re-enter the level and you’ll have a different random assortment of blocks, but you’ll still have the same number of lives! Use this to your advantage by resetting until you get a favorable selection of blocks at the start of the level (like, for instance, an easy setup for a vertical striped candy on the right side of the board.)
Consider starting with a booster you’ve previously earned. If you’ve been using the Daily Booster Wheel, you will probably have at least a few boosters saved up. On level 77, you can use three: striped and wrapped candies, jellyfish, and color bomb. Each will give you an advantage — see below for more information.
