Candy Crush Level 97 Strategy Advice
Color bomb combination with a candy bomb of the same color will get a higher score. When all the moves are used, you get striped candies which get you 3000 points on exploding.
Hint #1 Clear bombs first
Level 97 is the first time you will encounter candy bombs, and they can be a difficult challenge. With only eight moves available before the bombs explode, you will need to act fast. Use them as part of a combination or destroy them with a special candy. New candy bombs will continue to appear, so make sure you keep an eye on them and how many moves you have before they detonate.
Hint #2 Use special candies
Special candies can be the best way to reach the point goal for level 97. Special candy combinations, particularly those that use a colour bomb, will quickly boost your score. Special candies will also help you clear any candy bombs that come on your board. By creating special candies, you’ll also get a big jump in your points during the sugar crush at the end of your moves. In this level, the sugar crush can possibly help you reach the goal needed if you haven’t already.
Hint #3 Make big moves
Because you are aiming for 100,000 points in only 25 moves, you need to average 4,000 points per move. This means that using your moves on simple three candy combinations will mean you don’t complete level 97 successfully. Instead, make larger combinations where possible. If you are stuck and need to make a three candy combination, look for ones that will create a cascade of other matches, too.
Stars Scores for Level 97
When you score 100,000 points, you get 1 star. For a score of 115,000 points, you get 2 stars. 3 stars are given for a score of 120,000 points.
