Level 44 in Candy Crush is very similar to Level 42, but with a challenging spin. Instead of having a nice square board to play on, you'll find a board with spaces missing in key areas. This makes it tougher to both get rid of the cages and bring the 3 ingredients to the bottom.

So how do you beat this level?

The biggest challenge on this level is clearing the cages. Because of the spaces missing below the cages, the only way you can take them out is from above. Since this is so challenging, you may not be able to take them out right away, and may have to focus on the ingredients (for now).

The second biggest challenge of the board is getting the ingredients in the correct places. If they're lined up on a row where you couldn't get rid of the cage, you'll have to find a way to move the ingredient over to another row. There will be cages on this level that you never remove - there's just not enough moves! Because of this, managing your ingredients is very important.

The easiest way to be successful on this board is to create a lot of special combinations. Vertical striped candies are great, but candy packets will explode and take out all of the candies in the immediate vicinity. The candy bombs (5 candies in a row) also will do a lot of damage, and could take out many of the cages for you.

You will win if: You continually make special candy combinations to take out large chunks of the board
Look out for: Try not to get your ingredient stuck on top of a cage - you may never get it off!
