How do you beat Candy Crush level 169? This page contains the solution of level 169 in episode 12 (Pastille Pyramid) from the popular iOS, Android and Facebook game Candy Crush Saga. This step-by-step walkthrough will guide you through each and every part of this game and assist you to find all secrets and solutions to complete this level.
In level 169 your goal is to finish the level within 35 moves. To earn 3 stars, you must earn at least 75,000 points by matching candies.
Strategy 1Create as many special candies as possible. Early on, aim for wrapped + striped combo and striped + striped combo first. With only 35 moves, getting all 3 combos is tricky, so don't waste any moves. Be flexible with your plans, since special candies can be created out of luck and help filling up the orders, but they might be accidentally activated before they are combined.
Strategy 2With 6 colors, color bombs are very rare. As soon as one is created, immediately bring a striped candy next to it and mix them together as it is the hardest combo to be done in this level.
Strategy 3The most frustrating part is the target score. There is a chance of not reaching 45,000 points if you finish the level with less than 3 moves left. Most runs will only end up scoring less than 35,000 points before sugar crush.
