Candy Crush Level 17 Strategy Advice
The candies can be cleared easily by combining the striped ones vertically. To avoid being in a fix, do not get two similar color candies under an ingredient except when you have a striped candy horizontally. For the extra moves you have, you can get striped candies which give you added points. This is one of the difficult levels with the ingredients being hard to draw down. You need to bring 4 ingredients in 19 moves.
Hint #1 Make each move count
With only 19 moves in candy crush level 17, it’s important to make every move count. This means focusing on combinations that will help you get the hazelnuts closer to the bottom. You shouldn’t have a problem reaching the point goal, so focus on the ingredient drop to complete the level. Remember that you will get extra points for any moves remaining when you complete the level’s task.
Hint #2 Use striped candies
The biggest help in level 17 will be striped candies. Vertical striped candies can quickly clear a column containing a hazelnut. Horizontal striped candies can help get all four hazelnuts closer to the bottom. Using striped candies in columns with hazelnuts can help you quickly complete level 17. Combining striped candies can allow you to clear an entire column and row in one move.
Hint #3 Use color bombs to clear candies below ingredients
If your board gives you the opportunity to create a color bomb, combine it with a candy color that is below your ingredients. Again, you should be focused on getting as many candies below your ingredients cleared as possible. Combining a color bomb with a striped candy can help you complete candy crush saga level 17 very quickly!
To finish this level, you have to get 4 hazel nuts down and get a point tally of 40,000 in the 19 moves allowed.
Stars Scores for Level 17
For getting a single star, you should score 40,000 points. 50,000 points will fetch you 2 stars and 60,000 will bring you 3 stars.
