Level 40 in Candy Crush is a challenging one. On this board you need to clear the 37 jellies, 16 of which are DOUBLE jelly spaces. On top of that 7 of the jelly pieces are trapped in cages and you only have 30 moved to complete the level

So how do you beat this level?

First, take out as many jellies and cages as you can before taking any moves on the right side of the board. 30 moves is not a lot, so the more moves you take that don't clear anything, the greater chance you have of losing. If you're lucky, you'll be able to take out a lot of the cages and really free up the board

Next, focus on the bottom left row and corners with jellies. These will be the most difficult to clear, so the sooner you can get rid of them, the better. You don't want to be stuck with 3 moves remaining trying to clear the toughest jelly pieces on the board!

The setup of this board will make it difficult to create a lot of special candy combinations, so you may have to win taking out 2 or 3 jellies at a time. However, if you're able to make some special candy combos, it'll give you a much better chance of beating the level.


You will win if: You take out cages early and open up the board
Look out for: The jelly pieces in the corners can be tricky to see or remember - don't forget about these!
