Candy Crush Dreamworld Level 272

How to do level 272 Dreamworld
Tips from an anonymous player
Anonymous said...
Time bombs drop from the 1,3,5 columns, so keep those blocks in place as long as possible. Nuts and fruit drop from columns 2&4, so unblock those as soon as possible so you have fruit dropping.
Keep creating vertical stripes in columns 2&4, setting them off usually drops more than 1 fruit/nut.
If there is a timb bomb with no other candies of the same color nearby, clear out some candies under it so they get closer to the bottom, then use the coconut wheel VERTICALLY to clear the bombs on both sides.
Moonstruck is on move 19 and there are 5 moves in moonstruck mode.

I wish someone had posted a comment here! I am having a hard time with this one. I read the blog for regular candy crush 272, to get some ideas. I just don't seem to get through it. If I get a good board and gets lots of ingredients through, the bombs get me. I have tried just opening up the columns second from the left or right to release candies only but then I can't get them down fast enough. Any suggestions? Help!

Anonymous said...

Still stuck here! Closest I've gotten is one ingredient left and the bombs got me! UGH. This is so hard. Would love some tips from my fellow crushers.

This level is impossible.

I watched some of the videos of this level and all I can say is that it doesn't work the same way on the iPhone.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds this level impossible! I've gone back to playing previous levels on Candy Crush because I don't even feel like attempting this anymore. I may be finished with Odus! I tried it on the PC and it seems a bit better but those bombs get me every time!!! Last night I intended to play but noticed that they added more levels to Candy Crush so I played level 591 instead.

I finally won this level by luck. I can't count how many lives I wasted trying to beat it.

Thanks for the tips. I finally beat it but had to resort to buying extra lives to do so. This was one of the hardest levels in all of Candy Crush for me. I tried to keep the 1,3,5 columns blocked like you said but the cascades would inevitably open them. The bombs in those end columns were the hardest thing for me to deal with and sometimes it seemed like the coconut wheels made things worse.

Oh, if you buy extra lives, you get another Moonstruck. That helped :)

I hate this level. I can't even come close to completing it. I have tried following the above tips but have had no success. I think it is going to take a very lucky board.

Ridiculous level!!

Anonymous said...

The other thing I found helpful was to play just one side of the board. That way you're not chasing time bombs on both sides. I also saved the coconut wheel on one side until I needed it, when I needed to clear a bomb that I dropped lower so it would be in range of a vertical coconut wheel.
I won when I did these things, and I got lucky and had the opportunity to use many wrap-stripe combos that kept clearing the column and dropping fruit/nuts in the same column. I am now waiting for new episodes in both dreamworld and regular candy crush.

Ridiculously hard level. There is no way this should be using 6 colors. That is the number one determinate of how hard a level will be.

Anonymous said...

Is there any way to get fruit to come down in multiples? This one at a time is total B.S! The regular level is MUCH easier as sometimes you will get 4 or more fruit dropping together in one column!

Anonymous said...

In my opinion, this level cannot be passed. I'm tired of playing it and getting the same result 9 times out of 10, which is 5 of the 10 required ingredients. I don't enjoy it and I'm honestly thinking of hanging up Odus for good.

What a complete load of crap, this level isn't just hard, it's impossible without boosters!! There is clearly a bug with the game for the iPhone as I've watched the tutorial videos online and it's nothing like the same as the way the mobile game works!! Fix this bug candy crush for F##k sake!

Anonymous said...

King have confirmed that there is a bug for this level on the mobile version of the game. It's not possible without using several paid boosters. This seems to only affect Apple mobile users. They haven't confirmed when they'll put an update out to fix this bug though! Basically money grabbing b#**^#ds! Unless you're happy to pay for unnecessary and unfair boosters then probably best to wait until the next update. Now I know that King are basically conning people for money I've deleted the app and will avoid any game made by King in the future.

Anonymous said...

Bored of this now, it's impossible to complete and I'm certainly not paying for boosters as it just seems this level has been put in to make King as much money as possible. I've played this level so many times now its completely put me off the whole game! Nice one candy crush, you've made this level so hard people just don't want to play your game anymore! Idiots!

Anonymous said...

My advice is to leave this level alone for a few months, and then come back to see if they've made any changes, (more moves, more time on the bombs). This level is impossible without a ton of boosters the way it is now, and I don't believe anyone who says they beat it without paying for more moves, or paying to stop the bombs from exploding.

Sarah said...

Like everyone else, I've tried this one hundreds of times (not exaggerating), and have never come close. I was hoping they would fix this level with the latest update, but it remains the same: impossible. I agree with the advice about leaving it alone for a few months, hopefully King will fix it. I don't mind buying extra moves or lollipop hammers every few weeks, which I do, but there's no point with this level. It's useless even trying.

Anonymous said...

Agree with previous posters about leaving it alone. Up to over 100 lives used on this one, and never closer than 3 or 4 fruits to go. I don't mind paying for levels, they have to make money after all, but I want to play the game they intended and win without paid boosters, and you would need several to even get close here.

Hunter MacLean said...

Either I got lucky or this level is MUCH easier on Facebook. Beat it my first time I loaded it up on FB. Moonstruck basically kept on destroying everything and then I was finished with over a million points.

Give it a try on Facebook and I think you will be satisfied.

Anonymous said...

This level is freaking retarded. It's one thing to make it challenging, it's another thing to make it impossible. Screw this level!

Anonymous said...

We'll I agree with everyone, this one seems impossible. Best I've gotten so far is 7 out of the 10. Just doesn't seem like 33 moves is enough. Oh we'll, guess I'll keep at it.

Ingrid said...

I always play via Facebook but for this level it doesn't make any difference. It is impossible to clear this level and I have the idea that there isn't any booster that can help. I also have no clue how you get the fruit more frequently down. I never get enough fruit down to clear the level. We will wait till there is an update and hopefully King will make it more douable to get this level.
Any suggesties are welcome.

Been playing this level for a while now, and the best I've gotten is 7 out of 10 ingredients a few times. This should be a more realistic goal, or maybe 50 moves rather than 33. I don't know, but King should do something about this rediculous level before they continue to lose more players.

Anonymous said...

The only entertainment I have received from this level is reading all of the comments! LOL
Everything said is soooo true!

Anonymous said...

Wow! Reading all the comments echo exactly what I am feeling. For the most part, I ONLY play Dreamworld while waiting for a new episode on the regular Candy Crush, but this level is one where you just want to hang it up permanently. I've NEVER come close, what no one has really commented on is that the reason it is so impossible is because they are not enough color matches to clear the bombs. You might get as much as 6 or 7 out of 10 required fruit drops, but then you have a lone bomb in an area with no colors to match and you are doomed. More moves won't help on this one.

Anonymous said...

King should revamp this level, like they did with reality level 578. Judging by all the comments, no one can get past this level or even come close it seems.

Anonymous said...

Ready to quit dreamworld totally. This level is just NOT POSSIBLE. Guess I'll have to find a new game till they add more levels in reality candy crush. Done with 620, waiting for more.

Anonymous said...

At one point you realize you are just clicking your life away, like all the other levels where you were just basically waiting for a good board. This level turns it all around, this level makes you see that nothing comes for free in this world. I am done, I am stupid.
Because it took me 620 levels in 'reality' and it ends at 272 in 'dreamworld'

Anonymous said...

It's impossible to play in mobile apps. I tried many times and spent many days on it, I continuously failed this level. After seeing the comments above, I decided to switch to FB to play and I successfully clear it in second attempt.

Anonymous said...

King needs to make it the same for people that have mobile devices to play on, as well as those with pc's. Fair is fair!

Anonymous said...

After reading the blogs, I will try this once more on the PC. I have not been playing Dreamworld because this level isn't the least bit fun. I finished all the Candy Crush levels and started playing Bubble Witch Saga 2. I'm convinced that this level is impossible on an Android. If I am doing well with the ingredients, the bombs get me every time or Odus falls off of his perch.

Anonymous said...

Can't be done on ipad, period !!! Have gotten 7 a few times but that's it. Not enough moves to complete this level, no matter what you do. Have over 300 tries and there is just No Way

Anonymous said...

Used to look forward to playing candy crush games. Now I look for another game to play. King made an impossible level, so they are loosing players. Guess they don't care after making soo much money off of us!

Anonymous said...

Been stuck on 272 for a month now, also spent the 9.99 for boosters and still can not pass this level on PC, iPad, or iPhone. Switching to supercell games!

Anonymous said...

I've been stuck on this for over a week now (playing on iphone). It's drove me mad and it seemed impossible and I've been comparing the difficulty of it to 500 and 578 in reality. However, I've just done it. There was no skill involved. Merely luck of the board. So I'd just recommend to keep on trying.

Anonymous said...

What I experience with this level, on my Android phone, I seem not to go by more then 4-6 fruits. In many occasions, there is a sneaky bomb exploding, or simply not enough moves.

When I play on my laptop, I see Odus still sitting, but the game ends with the message 'Odus fell of' - even when I don't hit the colours Odus balances inbetween. Very annoying, because on the laptop Moonstruck is WAY more effective as on Android.

For the record, I am stuck for more than a Month in this level. At the regular game, I am waiting for the next update.

Also some greetz from Holland.

Andrea said...

I too play Odus whilst waiting for Candy Crush levels to be released, so I am very sad that Odus seems to end here. I have now started playing other games and just have the odd try to see if King have made it any easier as I think it is unbeatable! Sorry King you are losing me!

Anonymous said...

Been on this level over a month, at least 700 tries. Best I got once, was 8 out of 10. Going to delete soon I think, rediculous.

Anonymous said...

Damn, this is funny - yesterday I've posted about this level and my experience on the laptop.

Yesterday evening, my first try on this level went lucky ! Before the first Moonstruck I played 3 fruits (out of 10).

During the Moonstruck I did the best possible moves I guess, after the Moonstruck there was only 1 fruit left to play. I've finished with 14 moves left !!
By reading the above topic, I decided to choose column 2 to start crushing, after two fruits got out, I was able to play a vertical striped candy, which played both fruits. As a result I got an additional striped candy to play the third (those 3 fruits before this first Moonstruck was key to passing the level for me)

Irritating!

another stupid level in dreamworld...going on a month now...272...BORING BORING AND BORING........so i only play on King.com maybe once a day,just slowly dwindling my playtime with CANDY CRUSH and DREAMWORLD...there are so many other games out there that don't have limits..and are just as exciting and skillful as this...

Anonymous said...

After thinking this level was impossible on my iPhone and iPad, I came to this website in search of strategies. After trying the strategies, I still couldn't get close to passing. Got as far as 7 a few times. I decided to try on my laptop tonight and passed in 3 tries! Moonstruck just kept dropping the fruits on its own without me doing much. I did start off trying to only break through the 2nd or 4th column, but again, Moonstruck did most of the work if you get a lucky board on Facebook. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

We'll after 5 weeks and close to 1000 tries, finally got it down to 1 ingredient left with 1 move left. So I used 2 lollipops to get the last 1 out. (cheating, I know) , but soo glad to get past this level !!

Robeta said...

Soooo much easier on the computer. Passed it on third try after spending weeks on iPad and basically gave up. It is impossible on the iPad. Never got close. Use your computer!

Anonymous said...

Having spent about 2 weeks trying this level on the iPad I followed the advice on previous posts and tried it on the laptop - passed on the third attempt . They really need to make it a level playing field whichever device you are on ,thankfully because it's connected to Facebook my iPad has updated to level 273 .

luckylau said...

what the F....do i need to do to get past this level..made it this far but getting very pissed off now..tried on computer. tried on phone tried on tablet..NOTHING is working...just so darn frustrating now...i don;t play for a day or so, go back and try and still nothing...just annoying now...not fun...

This level was designed for you to spend money.

Nothing but luck will get you through it.

I have been on this level for about a month. Attention is failing and since I have completed the Regular (Level 635) Candy Crush, it is getting close to calling it quits for this game and deleting it from my devices.

Maybe some new levels will show up on Candy Crush

Anonymous said...

I refuse to spend money. If candy crush doesn't fix this level....I will uninstall the game. I will even uninstall pet saga and all King games if they make it impossible without making purchases!!!! This level is ridiculous in all honesty. It may be a sign that King is getting greedy and desperat.

Anonymous said...

This is a very different game on the PC. It is impossible on an android. On the PCm Odus is much more stable, the part where Odus flies away allows many fruit to drop and generally there are lots more combinations. On the Android, the stability of Odus, inability to get bombs on outside columns and number of fruit needed to fall make it nigh on impossible.

Anonymous said...

I completed this with my iPhone, it was very annoying. However my tips are. Only try to work one side. Only worry about clearing the middle three chocolates. Don't worry too much about accidentally clearing the middle bomb dispenser, use the wheel things, sliding horizontally so they clear vertical rows to clear the bombs when they near 0. You seem to get multiple fruit when the first is at the bottom, i.e. it's stuck against the wheel or unable to be freed. I've only ever had a maximum of 3 from one side, and that's rare, 2 is normal. It does not seem to give you more if you have both sides open, so keep one side blocked as long as possible. Obviously getting vertical stripe pieces in the fruit column is good, although for a bomb filled board wrapped candies are better. This level was a nightmare, but I did it, for £0! :) and it worries me the sense of achievement I feel. Possibly the most annoying level ever!

Anonymous said...

A VERY hard level but doable on a droid phone. Well I did use one hand switch but I had about 12 of those from the daily wheel. Beating this level took me around 50 tries. As others have said concentrate on just one column where the fruit/nuts come out. Hang in there and good luck.

Buddy said...

I agree with all of you! It is not a doable levels! I've playing at least 100 times and never even close! I'm at last level in the Kingdom so I guess I will wait for update! Impossible level!

Played 100s of frustrated games on my tablet so took advice from people here and tried it via my laptop. Succeeded with 3 stars on 6th attempt!!!

Anonymous said...

I tried the tip of playing only 1 side of the board and won on my 2nd attempt! This was after playing this level for a month without any success! Thank you Anonymous poster for the tip!!!

Anonymous said...

Giving up as of today - the comment "Keep creating vertical stripes in columns 2&4, setting them off usually drops more than 1 fruit/nut" is absolutely not true - ingredients appear one at a time and often with huge time gaps between them. Also - Odus is much more fragile on the PC so not true that it is easier to pass there. Well done King! AS

I played this level over and over. Used all the tips. I am not enjoying the game anymore. I quit. Shame.

Like Sep.4 comment above, I'm using all the tips but still stuck:( Even when I was given "good boards" . I must be a sucky player:(

Not enough moves, too many colors, not enough time on the bombs and fuck that damn bird. Been stuck on this level for three months. Let me know when the main board had new levels.

I am too, stuck here long enough:(
Crush this level or just give me a "Get out of Jail Free" card please:(

Really? You won this level with iPhone? Hmm...I was beginning to think it was impossible. I guess I'll keep on playing for awhile then:)
I was about to delete CC off my iPhone. Thanks:)

I followed all the tips. Still stuck. I think this is it for me. Deleting the game from my iPhone today:( It was a fun addiction. I just wanted to say Thank you & good bye:)

Been on this level for as long as I can remember ... None of the tips seem to work ... Going to give up on Dreamworld and just wait for main board updates.

I played for at least 2 months on my android phone...today I decided to try on my laptop, def easier, along with one moonstruck booster I finally passed this level...

Anonymous said...

The strategy is obvious, but in practice its nearly impossible. Getting 10 fruits down with bombs starting at 7 and the owl is always there to kill your game if the colors fall the right way (which is always). Only 33 moves?!

My playing time on this game has dramatically dropped, so thank you King!

That being said, I have witnessed them add moves and/or reduce the requirements to a level because they realized they went too far. I'm surprised this level hasn't gotten the same treatment.

Anonymous said...

Dear CC
Please do something! I'm stuck this level for .. I think more than 6 months if not longer. Granted I only play the dream world only when waiting on the other world's come up with new episodes. But 6 months? I don't even come close winning. Walk out of this Jail free card, please?!

Anonymous said...

Really tuff level! Hope I get a lucky board soon, driving me crazy with the bombs and owl. Oh we'll, gotta keep trying I guess.

Anonymous said...

It's been a well over a year since I got here.
I haven't used any boosters because I don't think they help on this level. On the other world I'm at the level 861 so I don't think it's a lack of my skill. I just suck at this level. Help!

This level is ridiculous! It's impossible. Been on it forever and thinking I will quit Dreamworld. You wonder why it's not as popular as regular Candy Crush????

Anonymous said...

I have been on this level for 9 months, seriously! I have never come remotely close! Are you kidding me? There is too much going against you! Bombs, chocolate, Odus AND 6 ingredients in only 33 moves! Haha! Fortunately, I only dabble in this level when waiting to move on during my regular game! Boosters won't help! IMPOSSIBLE! C'mon, King change the requirements on this one! (I am a good player....891 levels!)

Anonymous said...

Until there are changes to this level, I won't be trying this one again. Pretty much impossible.

Sarah said...

I'm still stuck here, over a year now. I kept thinking King would update it, but I think that time has long passed. I'm waiting for new levels on candy crush at level 905, so, not a bad player here. This level is ridiculous.

Agree. It's BS!

Yeah I stopped playing both worlds for a few months. I got past my block on the regular world, but this one is completely insane.

Anonymous said...

Yeahhhhh. Did it. Indeed concentrate on unblocking 2 and 4. Do verticals stripes as much as possible. keep a keen eye on bombs but don't overdo it. Do as much as possible in the moonstruck. Used a lollipop hammer for the last one. Been busy for a week on this bastard of a level. Good luck CC'ers and hang in. It can be beaten. JJ from NL

Anonymous said...

Tin tin here. I have been on this level for about 6 months....every now and then I would come back and try again....absolutely hopeless. I did it tonight. I worked only one side of the board, and on my computer. It seems impossible on my phone or tablet I must have used a thousand lives and a few boosters but they didn't seem to have any effect really. I really didn't think I would ever get through it, but I finally have. So it is doable, but boy it is not easy.

Anonymous said...

It took me a full YEAR to get past this one!!! Incredibly difficult. In the end I just got a lucky board and combined it with several boosters.
