Candy Crush Level 140 Cheats and Tips

This is tip 3 of 4 for Candy Crush 140.

Level 140 Cheat #3: Work low!.


  • Despite the temptation to move anywhere on the board (there are no obstacles!), try keeping your moves lower on the board. This will bring down more candies (a necessity for when you need more oranges/reds/yellows after you’ve cleared a majority of the board) and it will help form candy combos by catalyst from rows dropping in!
  • This effect is called cascading and will help you get the minimum score for this level!

  • Lc Clay

    After I passed 140 it said have a friend give me the next level (train) so when I accepted nothing happened. I can’t go on to the next level only back to 140 the one I just passed. Please tell me why I can’t go on or why when I was given the train it won’t work?

    • Kelli Ann Veiga

      You need 3 friends to help you. You will then move on to the next level. Have 1 friend fill 1 of the 3 trains!!

      • Irene Harris

        If you do the phone app without signing in on facebook, you can unlock on episode per day and you won’t have to wait for your friends. Takes three days, but you can do it.

        • jayswifey

          It doesnt take 3 days if you go into your phone settings and change the time 24 hours ahead.

    • alsprincess51

      The game does not allow you to move forward until it is ready for you to do so. I just keep playing the level over and over again until i am given the go ahead by the game

    • Susan Contratto Campbell

      You need three friend to help, but if you play Odus level for a few days, I’ve had the tooth fairy come and help me continue when no friends would help. Just thought I’ld let you know.

  • Janice Moning

    What do I have to do in 140

  • JoAnne

    HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY GET SOOOO MANY ORDERS FILLED IN THE AMOUNT OF MOVES ALLOWED???????

  • JoAnne

    I GIVE UP, WHAT’S THE SECRET TO 140; THE ORDERS NUMBER IS WAYYYY TOOOO HIGH FOR THE AMOUNT OFMOVES ALLOTTED. HELP IS NEEDED!!!

    • Kirsten Ness

      I completely agree! I’ve been stuck on this level for months!!

  • JoAnne

    Now that I’ve learned to create a color bomb, I don’t see any benefit at this level; it’s impossible to get 99 items eliminated; how did anyone else get it done???

  • JoAnne

    AGAIN, OUT OF MOVES, AT LEAST 30 LEFT FOR EACH CANDY ITEM; THERE IS NO WAY TO WIN THIS LEVEL. SURE DON’T WANT TO PLAY THIS SAME LEVEL FOR WEEKS AND WEEKS. WHAT’S THE SECRET; THE ABOVE PROMPTS ARE NOT HELPING.

    • Barb

      This is where I quit. Level 140 is impossible! Need. More moves. They should re-evaluate this one. No more weeks for me.

      • http://candycrush-cheats.com/ Candy Crush Cheats

        Hey Barb, where exactly are you having trouble?

        • Barb

          I have tried all suggestions to no success. Its notgiving me what I need to make bombs or the bombs go off before it can be matched. What’s the secret because I need more moves?

  • JoAnne

    WHERE’S PATRICIA WITH HELP ON THIS LEVEL???

  • JoAnne

    140, TOO MANY ORDERS TO DELETE; WHY AM I NOT GETTING HELP WITHTHIS LEVEL;SHOULD I SPEND WEEKS AND WEEKS ON JUST ONE LEVEL;SHOULDN’T HAPPEN.

  • JoAnne

    EXPLAIN TO ME HOW THIS LEVEL IS FUN WHEN YOU SPEND WEEKS AND WEEKS GETTING NOWHERE; YOU NEED TO MAKE IT A BIT EASIER FOR EVERY ONE!!!

  • JoAnne

    do you want everyone to quit candy crush since you make some levels almost impossible to pass?????? Weeks and weeks on the same level is no fun at all. What’s the deal???? HELP!!!~~~

  • JoAnne

    WHEN I SPIN THE WHEEL, THE LAST TWO DAYS I GET NOTHING FROM THE WHEEL. STILL CAN’T PASS 140; STUPID GAME

  • johny silkypants

    Its impossible so that you go crazy buying the extra special stuff so they make money…clever clever

  • JoAnne

    If I’m supposed to get 6 together, you have to give them to me; don’t you want this to be fun? If not, you win because it’s not fun.

  • JoAnne

    I’VE DONE EVERYTHING YOU SAID; CAN I PLEASE PASS 140!!!!!

    • Clyde Thompson

      None of these tips are helping me been stuck on level 140 forever l really hate that number, l need help please.,it would be greatly appreciated.

  • JoAnne

    Not only am I stuck on 140, my posts are NOT showing up here and the 3 extra moves given to me two different times didn’t show up either.

    • Scott Hannigan

      You’re on the right track JoAnne. When things get tough just spit the dummy and throw your toys out of the pram. It achieves heaps. Now, settle down and persevere.

      • Andrea

        Haha, what a twit. You just replied to a 6 month old post, retard. Yeah, I’m sure JoAnne is still stuck on level 140 and is in desperate need of your “input”. Get off the internet you troll, and find something better to do with your life than copying and pasting the same idiotic insult on multiple threads.

  • Rifter

    This sounds really counterintuitive but try:

    1. Making any candybombs you can, but instead of using up moves getting a stripey next to it, use it immediately to get rid of one of the colours you DON’T need.

    2. Make any striped or wrapped candies you can, regardless of colour, and set them off as soon as you can.

    3. Make any 3-in-a-rows of a colour you do need, but as close to the bottom of the screen as possible.

    4. Sometimes it’s better to make a 3-in-a-row of a colour you don’t need near the bottom of the screen than one you do need near the top: it’ll open up the board more quickly.

    I was stuck on lvl140 for days, then 2 goes with that strategy & I finished it on the last move. Good luck!

    • http://candycrush-cheats.com/ Candy Crush Cheats

      Great tip!

    • Patricia Strasser Meyer

      oh my gosh thank you….I got it on the first try…make as many bombs as you can

      • denisebreslin

        And how pray tell can someone just, pooof, make as many bombs as they like unless you lose precious time figuring out how to get five in a row, etc. NAH.

    • awkwardMEOW

      Been doing that for ages and still no luck…

    • Evelyn Spencer

      Awesome! Passed on the first shot!!

    • Cutiepie

      Thanks for the advice. After 3 months on level 140 your advice helped me beat this level. Horaah for me!!!!!!! Excited to move to the next level!!!!!!!

    • denisebreslin

      You sound like we can just go “poof” and “make” these combinations, but you can’t. I’ve done all the things you mention and find it still doesn’t move the score down nearly fast enough. I think it’s rigged to give a few folks here and there some help so they can let everyone else know “hey I did it” but I don’t think it’s legit.

  • Bhavin Dave

    . Level 140 is impossible! I cant clear . They should re-evaluate this one. No more weeks for me.This is where I quit

    • http://candycrush-cheats.com/ Candy Crush Cheats

      Don’t give up. Just keep at it and you’ll beat it!

  • Vanellope Schweetz

    It does NOT matter if there were no bombs or chocolates or whatever. It’s impossible unless you have enough money to purchase candy bombs or striped candies. I’ve tried over 100 times. I followed every tip but it is not working. It is not my fault that damn puzzle fucks up my every candy bomb combo or candy striped combo or make it impossible to make 297 candies in only 45 moves. I may sound real bitter but I am pissed off. I’ve played hard on this level and not getting anywhere. The game gives messed up puzzles all the damn time. I appreciate all the tips and they were very helpful. Without your helpful tips I wouldn’t have passed 139 levels. But this level is hard as hell. Sorry. Cannot pass it and feel like quiting.

    • Irene Harris

      I did like the article suggested and stayed low on the board and only going higher for candy bombs and striped candies when I was out of options on the lower half of the board. After three weeks of not getting passed this level, I read the article and got it after three tries.

      • denisebreslin

        HOW? I can’t believe you did.

    • Scott Hannigan

      Just throw your toys out of the pram and be done with it.

    • Kirsten Ness

      Same here!! I’ve been stuck on it for months!!!

    • denisebreslin

      I’m kind of bitter too as this level is totally impossible. The person who played the game to show how it could be done exceeded the time limit I’m SURE. It’s the worst level they ever had. Shame on them. I find the Bombs don’t do a damned think unlike other levels. Don’t quit just keep commenting. We’re with ya.

  • AliciaC

    Woah! I got through 140 after only a handful tries! Got a wrapped candy with a chocolate, also the chocolate with a striped candy. Yay!

  • papa

    Fuck level 140

  • Arcadia Bird

    i have been on level 140 4 ages and its difficult 2 pass

  • Carol

    I thought some of the other levels were hard but this one really sucks! I’ve spent days on this level and have become discouraged! About to throw in the towel! :-(

  • Nan

    Took over a week. Finally got it with three candybomb/striped candy combos. Get them as early as possible. Got it down to the last play with 2 candies to go and no matches for the remaining colored candy, so I used lollipop hammers (which don’t use a move) to clear two individually. The only thing they could do to make this worse is put a timer on it. I almost quit the game out of frustration. I think they want you to buy lives, but so far I haven’t had to.

  • Viv

    The trick is to get a bomb-striped combo of a color that’s NOT yellow, red or orange. Usually the board has a much larger percentage of those colors and the combo would practically wipe off the entire board! A couple of such combos and you’re done!

  • Julie

    Why is it that even when I get 3 in a row of one colour, the score doesn’t change and even when I have used a chocolate with a candy stripe, the score doesn’t change. This level is impossible

  • http://batman-news.com Brian

    We all know that King is in the business of making money. We all know the game is rigged to make you spend money (Lvl 65, Lvl 140, Dreamworld 101). We all have seen the owl “happen” to fall off for no reason on candy breaks, the needle slow down to a snail’s pace on the jackpot just to find that extra “momentum” to go to the next section on the wheel. I believe in a fair game not rigged for people to spend their hard earned money on it. Let me help everyone stick it to King and maybe a fair, reasonable game will happen. This is what you do……
    You just go into your phone setting… Scroll down and look for (Time and Date) Change your date 1 day head… Then go open Candy Crush, you will have 5 new lives. BUT do not play the game yet. Close Candy Crush, and go back to your setting and reset the date back to the original today’s date….Very Important!!!
    Then go back to Candy Crush and play the game. You can do this as many times per day as you like. Always open CC and make sure there’s 5 news lives… BUT ALWAYS remember to go back and reset the date BEFORE you play the game. IF you don’t the “minute ticker” on CC will turn in days, and weeks, and months, maybe longer. (YOU don’t want this to happen)
    ALWAYS reset your Time and date before you play CC……
    This can also be done on an iPad, Smart phones, and IPhones, and other small hand held computer devices. BUT not a P.C.

  • jeanne

    level 140 is too difficult and making me want to leave CC forever. I have been stuck on it for months..mostly bc I hate playing this game now..it should not be this tough to pass on..seriously

  • jeannie

    I agree with Julie. The counter does not register several times during this level. I think it’s a developer flaw. I wonder if they are aware of this.

  • jeannie

    This level is much too hard. It’s too much like work. I think this is it for me.

  • jeanne

    ridiculous level..I go on CC once in a while now just to see if by some miracle I pass…but I never do…I may just be quitting for good…none of the hints posted here work.

    • jeanne

      ok I cant believe it but I just passed it!!! just keep trying to make lots of stripes and combos…

  • Lorraine

    you have to get the 5 candy’s in a row as soon as possible and match it with a stripped candy do this at least three times ,close to the start of the game as possible to get the most candy’s gone. i made it after six tries.good luck. .

  • Louisa

    Ok, here’s the secret. Stop playing for awhile. We’re not idiots, we can find something more constructive to do. Then, when you are sure you’re ready for the aggravation again, go back. You may find it’s not as interesting as you used to think it was. And don’t buy anything! It’s like shopping with no benefits, ya don’t even get a good meal out od it. Take that money and go to lunch with your friends . Good luck!!

  • Warners Sporthorses

    It seems to help if you work the bottom of the board. You get multiple orders filled that way per move.

  • Jared

    I cleared 140 with 6 moves to spare, thats after trying for bout a month…lol

  • Eva Merachi

    If you get a good board and make as many color bomb/striped combos as possible, you CAN beat this board, I did after three tries. I did buy 5 extra moves, but only needed one to beat it. Good Luck everyone.

  • shelley

    read this 5 minutes ago. just beat level 140 after 2 months. use color bombs to eliminate green, blue and purple instead of yellow orange and red. really works

  • joyce

    you win candy crush 140 well done to you ,i quit

  • Kathy

    There is no way to win this. The tips and video contradict each other. Give me blockers any time.

  • Charles Lindberg

    why are all the dates on these comments 4 or 5 months old??? did everybody all of a sudden stop playing in the last four months?????……anyway that’s enough of candy crush, this level is just beyond what any game has a right to ask……besides that the last twenty levels or so are just basically you just keep playing till the game decides to allow you to win, like for real, how unimaginative, also it shows a lack of real intelligence and creativity on the programmer'(s) part….could i do better?, nope…..then again i don’t claim to be a game programmer…..

  • Jax

    I just completed this level and realized the quickest way for me was to build as many cascades as possible. I tried for the candies I was collecting but really any will do. The main thing is to get the cascades and they’ll do most of the work for you. If you can couple a striped with a color bomb, even better! I completed this level in about 10 tries. Good luck!

  • Jax

    I just completed this level and realized the quickest way for me was to build as many cascades as possible. If you can create a color bomb next to a striped candy, even better. I tried to build w / the colors I was collecting but found that as long as I achieved cascades of any color, they seemed to do most of the work for me. I was able to finish this in about 10 tries. Hope this tip helps someone!

  • Alexandra Helander

    Actually it is not impossible, i focused all attention in getting color bomb/striped candy combos and i managed to get like 3 of these and then a few other combos and in the end i had five moves left :) so try to get one free color bomb by spinning the daily wheel so then you just need one or 2 more of those in the combination with striped candy

  • Rob

    Just make lots of combinations — especially wrapped and striped. Got it on first try.

  • Laura

    FUCK THIS LEVEL! I’ve been stuck on it for almost a month. Thank Goodness for OWL world. Oh yeah…and employment/life lol

  • US citizen

    Just finished level 140. It took me just over 3 weeks to do it. Try this. Set up a sprinkled candy and a striped color candy (orange, yellow,red) and blast it oft the board. Does this with the remaining colors and then finish off the rest of the orders with 3-4 candy combinations. Gook luck.

  • awkwardMEOW

    I have been stuck on 140 for weeks and about to stop playing forever. I do work low and rely on combos, but I never get it.

  • Joe Blo

    not helpful

  • mitchellvii

    I DID IT!

    OMG I finally beat Level 140 with no cheats. How? Got 2 cookie/stripe combos but second one had a board full of yellows and the stripe was a yellow. Massive takedown. Still, even with 2 cookie/stripes and a stripe/wrapped I still made it with just 2 moves to spare. Brutal brutal level.

    P.S., This game is easier on the PC in Facebook than the Android version. You get better combos.

  • Evelyn Spencer

    Did what Ritter said seven months ago and passed the first try!

  • Bear

    I passed this level twice! It still won’t let me move on. I had a score of 130,000 points and a score of 128,000 points with six to eight moves left! It then tells me I failed. After every damn candies been checked off!, what else is required? I played a thousand times. There’s no way way to move on. I even used the cheats and tips,they help to finish the level,but It won’t let me go. I am forced to play the same damn level 140 for thousand more times now I just don’t give a damn. Candy crush is not worth the stress. This level I have proven is rigged! Do not play, delete candy crush and play a better game that’s fun & challenging. Not rigged to the point you can’t move on even after you pass! And over 130,000 points is pretty high! Now it worthless.

  • lxl raghav lxl

    Even though we need red, orange and yellow, we should not ignore other colors… Make sure to make combos with every possible color candy to pass this level…

  • Alice Monnier Mccloud Spatuzzo

    I wiped out with a double chocolate all, but no numbers cam off …..

  • Pam Baez

    I’m stuck on this level !!!!

  • Barbara

    I’m not sure what to do to beat this level. It’s been a couple of weeks and I’m still learning the strategy.

  • Christopher W. Merritt

    I just passed level 140, there was any hidden tricks. Took me 2 days, played it about 25 times. Just like they say, all combos. Focus on the colors and on 4/5, not always just 3 at a time. I passed it with only 2 sprinkles/donuts, not need to spend any money at all. Good luck,

  • lee

    I am ready to take this game off.140 this is a joke.

  • shumsullah

    I GIVE UP, WHAT’S THE SECRET TO 140; THE ORDERS NUMBER IS WAYYYY TOOOO HIGH FOR THE AMOUNT OFMOVES ALLOTTED. HELP IS NEEDED!!!

  • Mr. wuggles

    This NEVER happens! On my third try I got 8 color bombs and beat the level. The game is so random!

  • denisebreslin

    I watched the video and I KNOW the time had well elapsed while this “person” was still playing. I find this far too frustrating and impossible to be even slightly enjoyable. Bah Humbug.

  • denisebreslin

    OK, I timed a game when I played … it was about 2 minutes plus a few seconds. HOWEVER when this “display” gamer played it was FOUR minutes and some seconds. He/she stopped and took good long thought times out. Come on it’s a cheat. Try it guys. Play it yourself and time it. THEN go to the display game here and you’ll find that the time allowed is TWICE what you get. If that isn’t a cheat, what is. Give it a try. Disgraceful.

  • Lyndal Coleman

    Soooooo angry at this level. Have been stuck for months and months. Did not play for 3 months and have now restarted. A month later and STILL can’t pass. I give it a week then I delete for good. Anyone with useful tips that actually work?

  • barb

    Here i go again!! Stuck on 140. Rare to get a sprinkle . More rare to line up a wrap & a strip. Boring after a while. Tempted to throw in the towel.

  • Com. Safety

    For over a week now, I have been randomly completing level 140 { getting the required 30,000 points & collecting all color orders } even with 40 moves which gave me extra 5 moves left !
    Nonetheless, after the game saying “Level Completed ” it will only ask me to press NEXT button but will only take me back to Level 140 , am stuck. I will start all over again to get the same result again. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks, S.
