Bombs away! This is the last level of the episode, so – as is normal – it’s super hard. There’s colour bombs on hand to help you, but you need to reach them first: striped candy will help with that, or use striped and wrapped combos to get through the marmalade. Then use the colour bombs to take out the timed bombs that are threatening to detonate on you – keeping them next to a chameleon candy will help.
If you can bring the two colour bombs in the vertical column down on top of each other, you can make a colour bomb and colour bomb combo to do a clean sweep on the board. Frustrating, but oh so satisfying when you finally get it right.
In Candy Crush Saga level 455 you need to collect the orders and score 50,000 points to complete the level. This is a tough level. Not only do you only have 40 moves to get 120 each of red, blue and orange candies but there are also 16 bombs each of which have just fifteen moves before they explode. There are some color bombs along the edges and bottom of the board but these are covered in marmalade and in a separate section of the play area. Once you start playing, you will realise that bombs drop down from the top as well and as you start clearing the side and lower sections you will realise that you can get bombs there as well and they can get stuck and cause real problems.
If you can, try to unblock two striped bombs and the candy between them in a row. Then eliminate that candy using a horizontal stripe. The two color bombs will then be next to each other. Save them until your bombs are down to one, eliminating candies of the required colors in the meantime and then activate them together to clear the whole board. It is wise to look beyond the bombs and look at the colors rather than the numbers. It can be off putting if you concentrate too hard on the numbers and you can miss opportunities to make special candies. You can also use the color bombs to eliminate single colors. It can be tempting to choose the red, blue or orange as you need those but also consider taking out those that you have bombs in with low numbers. Taking out any color will give more opportunities to make special candies.
There is little point in using boosters on level 455 as they are likely to be wasted as there is so much luck with getting the right combinations to stop the bombs going off. A bomb cooler could be good but only if you are very close to winning.
