How do you beat Candy Crush level 181? This page contains the solution of level 181 in episode 13 (Cupcake Circus) 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 181 your goal is to finish the level within 50 moves. To earn 3 stars, you must earn at least 65,000 points by matching candies.
Strategy 1There is only one way to pass this level - the hardcore way. After making room for the main board area, keep on blasting horizontal stripes into the meringues. Wrapped candies are useful, as they can be mixed with striped candies, including the vertical ones, which help significantly in this level. A color bomb only helps indirectly in terms of reducing colors for a better chance to make special candies, or making a color bomb + striped candy combo.
Strategy 2In short, assuming all striped candies are placed correctly and set off, there are a total of 14 hits needed to bring down the ingredients. (wrapped candy + striped candy combo counts as 3) The meringues on both sides have the following layers: 3-4-4-3 (top to bottom).
Strategy 3If you are lucky and get a color bomb and have no strategic way of detonating it, consider making a horizontal switch as any striped candies created by cascading will be horizontal.
